The Rabbit Hole/Therm O Web Collaboration

Hello crafty friends and welcome back to my blog!
I am so excited because I am up on The Rabbit Hole blog today with something fun!
The Rabbit Hole Designs has teamed up with Therm O Web to bring you some awesome
projects! Today I have 2 fun cards to share with you using the Rainbow and Teal Decofoil.
I had so much fun with the Decofoil because I've never used it before.
Once I foiled one or two images I was hooked and the dog and cats were lucky I didn't foil them too!

Here is my first card using the Rainbow Decofoil and the Sofishticated
stamp set from The Rabbit Hole Designs.

For my first card I decided to try foiling an image printed from my laser printer.
Since I knew that the Decofoil would stick to toner I had the idea to stamp an image
in black ink and scan it into my laser printer.  Once the printer printed out the scanned image
I ran it through my laminator with the Rainbow Decofoil and watched the magic happen.
The results were stunning!  As always with foiling on cards, it's so hard to capture the true
shine and magic in a a photograph.  Those of you who have tried foiling and photographing
know what I mean. The Zentangle style of the fish in the Sofishticated stamp set really pick
up the rainbow foil in such amazing detail. I was so impressed with the results of foiling
over the toner, I decided to foil the sentiment as well!

Here is the Seahorse on a bookmark from the same stamp set foiled the exact same way 
and I love it just as much as the pretty fish!

For my second card I decided to try foiling with a different technique.
I used the Decofoil Transfer Gel and the Teal Decofoil.
I used a wavy stencil and layered the transfer gel over top and let it dry over night.
The next morning I took the stenciled panel and laid the Teal Decofoil over it and sent it
through the laminator. Once again, amazing results!
I just love the Inky stamp set from The Rabbit Hole and I thought that
googly eyed octopus would look so good against all that shiny foiling!
I cut out a circular shape from the center of the wavy panel for this card and I used the rest
of the panel for another shaker card I'll share below.

There are so many ways to foil and they're all so much fun!
I used the leftover panel from the above card to make this awesome shaker card
once again using the Sofishticated stamp set.

You can really see the shine in this picture because of the way the light is hitting it.
Once again the shine is so impressive!

This was my first experience with foiling and I was surprised how easy it was to do!
There is plenty of inspiration on the Therm O Web website and tons of YouTube videos
to show you the many ways to achieve that beautiful shiny look!
A big thank you to Therm O Web for supplying our DT with products so 
that we could try out this fun technique!
