Mass Production & Hot Foil Stamping | Video

Hello crafters! I have been doing a lot of hot foil stamping lately and I’ve come across really cool tips and tricks to help make better cards and make cards faster, and I thought it would be a good idea to put together a video sharing these tips with you! I know how much you loved my previous videos sharing 7 hot foiling tips and I hope this video will be just as useful!

CARD IDEA

I am working with the Sweet Blooms border Glimmer hot foil plate from Spellbinders to make the cards I’m sharing today, but you can use any other hot foil plate you have in your stash. The Sweet Blooms border Glimmer hot foil plate is a pretty little border that takes about half of an A2 card. My goal was to make a set of cards using this plate, so I knew I would need to foil it multiple times for the idea I had in mind, and that’s where the mass production with the Hot Foil Stamping came into play. Watch my video above for the details.

I love this foiled background and I look forward to coloring it using other color combinations. Perhaps creating yellow or purple flowers and maybe using teal for the leaves. Oh, and how about coloring the background dark blue? Cannot wait to try!

I added a small pink dot over each foiled dot on the background. I love how that ties in with the pink coloring on the flowers, although I think white dots would look stunning here as well.

For my last card last I die-cut a circle from kraft cardstock and I foam mounted the sentiment over it. Next, I used the other foiled cutout, this time I had cut out individual flowers and placed them around the circle. The idea here was to cover up the seam in between the two foiled borders that I had on the background. I didn’t color the background, I wanted it kept as it, just the foiling, but I did add color to the card using these cut out foiled flowers.

I love the simplicity of this card and all of that foiling too, it is so classy! I added the pink dots to tie in with the pink coloring and that finished this card.

    1. Beautiful cards. Thank you. I just got a hot foil machine. So you videos are very helpful.

    1. Awesome cards! Your nuvo dots are great – how do you do them? Mine always look flat and not always the same size?

      1. Thank you, Nancy. I’m not sure why you’d be having the problems you are describing with Nuvo. Mine aren’t always perfect, they do flatten after they dry. Maybe your product is brand new? Meaning is it very fresh and runny? I’ve had mine since they first came out, some are pretty dry, so the dots I get are quite dimensional. As for the size – mine are never all of the same size 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh! My mouth fell open with the beauty of your foiling and coloring on these cards. They were breathtaking. Thank you for all your tips about the hot foil machine and mass production. Still learning and every piece of information helps me to make a better product, ie not foiling my plates!!!!!

      1. So glad you’ve found this helpful, Patricia! And I’ve foiled my plates by accident a number of times 😀 I actually quite like them like that, foiled 😀 Thank you!

    1. Your cards are stunning stunning Yana! I love your foiling tutorials, I always learn so much from them and you create the most gorgeous cards.

    1. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Love your color combinations and card layouts. It is amazing how the Sweet Blooms border can look so different when used as a total card front vs just as a border. These products are definitely on my “wish list”! Your hot foil tips made my Christmas cards this year a GREAT HIT! THANK YOU!!

    1. These are just breathtaking! I stopped in to see your latest and greatest and my jaw just dropped! GORGEOUS gold and pinks!
