Thankful Leaves with Gina K. Designs & Therm O Web

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials12 Comments

Today I’ve got a simple card featuring some brand new products from Gina K. Designs and Therm O Web. If you haven’t tried any of Gina’s products designed for the Stamp and Foil system, they really are fun and versatile and when you do that whole peel and reveal to see the shine, it never gets old.

For this card project, I decided to do a bit of Copic coloring with Gina’s Thankful Leaves Stamp and Foil sheets, and I think it turned out cute. You can use a bunch of different color mediums on those sheets and the foil still grabs when run through a laminator.

Our heat wave recently broke here in Minnesota and the leaves are already starting to fall. Fall is truly my favorite season of the year and I’m excited to share more fall-themed cards (and projects!) in the coming weeks!

Here is my video showing you how I made this card:

    Try using the dot roller (you only need a few dots) to keep the card closed (instead of the purple tape or post it tape. Works great and cheaper.

    Beautiful!! I sure wish the colorful leaves would last longer in Minnesota. 🙂 Seems like a person has a week to possibly enjoy them and then the wind takes care of them. I love the smell of autumn!!

      It really is my favorite time of year here. I don’t remember this growing up in Seattle… the leaves changing. I remember big awesome Evergreens… but not like what we have here!

    So, I have been avoiding getting into the foil thing because of the “new stuff” I would have to buy, but I have to admit that I love what you did to the leaf. So besides the stamps and dies (which I have (-;), I would need a laminator and foil. Is there special paper that is required. Does any laminator work?

      Hey Michelle! So… any laminator will work, essentially. You can get a Heidi Swapp Minc, or just a laminator at an office supply place. Now, to use Gina’s stuff, you need her Stamp n Foil sheets. They are printed with a special toner/resin that melts when it comes in contact with heat, which is how the foil adheres during the lamination process. OR, if you have a laser printer, you can print your own black ink images and foil them. It does not work with ink jet printed elements. And my laser printer is hit and miss. I think because it’s just old.

      Clear as mud?
