Foiling with Repeat Impressions Stamps

Good Morning! Today it's my turn for Project of the Week for The House That Stamps Built.  I'd like to share with you some tips and helps about foiling with Repeat Impressions Stamps.  First of all this is a FUN technique that can be used in many different ways and there are many different techniques to use foil and today I'll share one way.  First up is a list of supplies you will need to get started.

fine detail embossing powder
anti static pad or tool
foil - any brand name
Repeat Impression Stamps
heat laminator

After stamping image with Versamark, coating with a fine detail embossing power and using a heat tool, your image should look like this.

Cut a piece of foil that will cover your image and place inside a sheet of paper folded in half and run this thru a heat laminator.  This one has 2 settings, I used the lower setting.

I found that line images work better than solid images.  Color of embossing powder doesn't matter but it is best to use a super fine embossing powder.  Pictures of the cards I made were taken at different angles so that the camera could pick up the shine.

The tag was spritzed with Glimmer Mist after attaching to a glittered tag.

               Genealogy from Text Backgrounds(done in gold foil)

This was a fun project -- watching how the images transform can become addicting - so your desk may end up looking like this! 
Hope you will give this a try with some of your Repeat Impressions Stamps.
