Foiling Fails | Honey Bee Stamps

If you’ve ever tried to hot foil, you know it’s a ton of trial and error. Along with that, it comes with some mistakes — but you definitely can still use it and you most likely can’t tell!

Layers | Erin Lee Creative

I’ll admit that although I’m not a clean and simple cardmaker, I’m also not a layered, dimensional one either. But sometimes, you definitely need to pull a ton of layers to create an amazing card. This is definitely one of them and it also reminds you that you don’t always have to use tags just for presents — you can use them on cards too!

Coloring Hot Foil | Erin Lee Creative

The elegance of hot foil is great but I love to add a bit of color to it as well. I used copic markers to color this up with a fall palette and it just goes so well with the hot foiled gold accents.

Hiding Die Cut Outlines | Trinity Stamps

This is one of my favorite hot foil dies for the holiday season and beyond because I think it’ll be pretty versatile. I thought it would be the star of the show, but honestly, I think the Polar Party image stole the spotlight. I no line colored it up with copic markers and die cut it out with the coordinating die because there was no way I would fussy cut this out. I don’t always love that outline around a die cut, so I just used my go to trick to hide it!

Imperfect Foiling | Erin Lee Creative

Sometimes you just don’t get perfect foiling. It happens because foiling is a bit finnicky — you need the right sandwich, the right heat, the right paper and it just doesn’t always come together. But even when I don’t get a perfect foil — you can still use it!

Layered Stencils | Pinkfresh Studio

To be honest, I didn’t gravitate towards Pinkfresh Studio until I took their Connect and Create class last year and then again this year. It was then when I fell in love with the style and how they put together cards. It’s so simple and easy. Their designs really help make super easy cards but they look beautiful and full of small details.

Rainbow Foil | Honey Bee Stamps

My favorite hot foil to use is Rainbow Foil. It’s so fun and pretty if once you get the hang of the technique. Of course, you can always ink blending and use die cuts instead… it’s kinda awesome that in this new Honey Bee Release … they give you all the options: Hot foil or Die cuts.
