Simon Says Stamp - No Heat Foiling, Part 2



I'm back with 4 cards and even more foiling Lovelies! This time instead of using a tape runner, I am using different sizes of double-sided tape to make foiled backgrounds and diecuts.


I paired my foiled things with bold and striking stamps from the Simon Says Stamp's Born to Sparkle release and ended up pretty tickled about the results, so I hope you like them too!


I don't have a group shot for you today, so we will get directly into the cards and as usual, the supply list will be at the bottom of this post.



Sending Lots of Hugs Card

Okay, I know that I am not supposed to play favorites, but this was actually my favorite of the 3 cards. It's super simple and the foiling is such a statement here, alongside that super-sized sentiment from Simon Says Stamp's XL Greeting 2 Stamp Set.




This is really easy so not very much description is required as I took a few pics along the way and will share a some notes as needed. All three cards use the same technique of:

  1. adding the adhesive to the are of the card where you want to see foil,

  2. removing the tape backing,

  3. pressing the foil "pretty-side up" into the adhesive,

  4. then pulling the foil sheet away from the taped cardstock to reveal the foiled piece.


This card uses 1/2"-wide double-sided tape.

  • Foil Colors - Gina K Fancy Foils - Passionate Pink, Radiant Red, Sweet Mango, Wild Dandelion, Gold Sequins, Glittering Green

  • "Sending Lots of Hugs" sentiment - Simon Says Stamp XL Greeting 2 Stamp Set

  • Vellum Heart - Simon Says Stamp Nested Hearts

You're Simply The Best Card

For this next card I stepped it up a notch with creating a starburst pattern just like the one I used in No Heat Foiling - Part 1, but this time using different sizes of double sided tape instead of a tape runner to adhere the foil.



This card starts with creating the pattern on an A6-sized piece of cardstock as shown below. I will need to try additional patterns in the future because this was FUN!



Once this is done you are ready to trim the excess tape, adhere the foil and embellish with stamps and diecuts.


Other Key Notes:

  • Card Base - A6, 4.50" x 6.25"

  • Double Sided Tape - 1/8" and 1/4" Scor-Tape Craft Tape

  • Foil Color - Deco Foil Summer Rainbow

  • Background Stamp - Simon Says Stamp Balloon Background Stamp

  • "You are Simply the Best" diecut - Simon Says Stamp You are Simply the Best Die

  • Oval Diecut - Simon Says Stamp Nested Ovals

  • Cardstock - Simon Say Stamp - Plum Glitter Cardstock and Lipstick Red Cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest #110 Solar White







Best Friend Card

This card also uses different sizes of double-sided tape to create a pattern, but this one is so simple that apart from measuring the centerpoint along the top edge of the card, it was not necessary to draw a pattern.




As before, prepping the card base for foiling is the 1st step. Please ignore the large dot stenciled background on the foiled base below, I decided that it was too overpowering for this design and covered it up after I finished applying the foil! :-) #crafterproblems


Other Key Notes:

  • Card Base - A6, 4.50" x 6.25", the foiled layer is cut down to 4" x 5.75" after applying foil

  • Double Sided Tape - 1/8", 1/4" and 1/2" Sookwang Craft Tape

  • Foil Colors - Gina K. Fancy Foils: Wild Lilac, Passionate Pink, Sweet Mango

  • "You are the best Friend" Stamp - Simon Says Stamp XL Greetings 2

  • Ink - Distress Oxide Dusty Concord

  • Cardstock - Neenah Classic Crest #110 Solar White


I totally fell in love with this color combo!






Happy Birthday Card

The last card focus on a rainbow foiled diecut as the center of attention and for this one I pulled out my largest sizes of double-sided tapes.




To start, 2 strips of 2 1/2" wide double-sided tape was applied to an A2-sized cardstock and the excess was trimmed off before adhering the rainbow foil to the wider top strip of tape. Silver foil was applied to the thinner strip of tape at the bottom before die-cutting.



Of course I was in love with this rainbow foil, so I made some heart diecuts by strategically placing the hearts on different sections of the foil diecuts. I also repurpose the negative cutout of the letter "H" to create the "stem" of my exclamation point.



Other Key Notes:

  • Card Base - A6, 4.50" x 6.25", the foiled layer is cut down to 4" x 5.75" after applying foil

  • Double Sided Tape - 2.5" Craft Tape

  • Foil Colors - Deco Foil: Rainbow, Silver
