Happy Saturday friends! Autumn with you today and I'm sharing some fun experiments with foiling using a variety of techniques. Grab a cuppa and see which one is your favorite...

I ended up with five completely different results, each stemming from the last.

My first thought was to apply my glue stick through a stencil. This stencil didn't have enough open space so the pattern didn't quite come through.

So I did the good old glue stick edging technique and used a cabinet card frame to mimic the design. If you've never tried this one, you just rub your glue stick along the edge of your project and then place the foil pattern side up over the glue stick and burnish.

Here I used Ranger's bronze foil.

I decided the effect would work better on a more open stencil, so I tried these circles.

You can definitely see the circular pattern this time.

I first used bronze foil, then added gold to the sticky residue that was left after the first lift and the result was more like variegated gold leafing.

Then I tried foiling a pre-inked panel which I had die cut with a Mixed Media thinlet.  I just rubbed the glue along the die cut section, then smeared it well with my fingers (all over a scrap of paper).

I applied the light gold foil. This made a very dramatic panel!

I layered it with some Worn Wallpaper and more Paper Dolls.

Because glue stick foiling isn't perfect, it allowed some of my inky background to show. I love the worn effect!

My foil sheet had a great pattern left behind from the die cut experiment. I wanted to transfer it to another panel. I applied my glue stick to my inky paper in a section about as large as my foil castoff then burnished the foil onto the glue.

There was glue left where the foil didn't attach so I added a second color, this time teal. Of course, now I could take that foil castoff and do this again and again.

I sponged the edges of the panel with Frayed Burlap to compliment the gold.

This pattern was so dramatic I didn't add much to the card design.

For my last experiment  I took an inky dry embossed panel, thinking of the gold embossing I did to some on THIS post. I lightly rubbed the tips of the embossing with my glue stick and foiled those sections, again in gold.

I did some glue stick line foiling around my mat as well. You can mix and match these techniques. And you don't have to go overboard with the foil. A little yields a beautiful result. These cards are all quite grungy, but the foil gives them great oomph in real life. I really hope you'll give glue stick foiling a try. Make sure to pin this post for future reference. :)

  12. I have so often loved the look of foiling but forgotten that it can be done with a glue stick if you don’t have a laminator... I am thrilled you shared this technique. Your cards are absolutely gorgeous, I especially love how you used the left over area on a card! Thanks for sharing Autumn!
