What Did Not Work

I have this paste for adding foiling to projects called Tacky-when-dry. It works great through stencils and with glitter flakes but I wanted to see if I could use it with stamps to add foiling. Could not find any advice on the internet for how to accomplish this so I tried positioning stamps in the MISTI then added the paste with a stencil brush and stamped the stuff to white copy paper. Once dry I pressed the foil to the paste and not much stuck, enough to see the outline but not what I was aiming for. Plan B: re-stamp in black ink and call the gold a drop shadow. After adding heat embossed chunky white for snow then white paint splatter I die cut with cutout along sides and added to red mat layer. I then added the foil with double sided thin tape to the top and bottom to complete this one. All is on white cs base. Just because it did not work for what I had in my head does not mean it was not worth saving, and I may even do it again on purpose. There is a good reason that I could not find any one using the product in this way, it does not work.

Thanks for sharing your time with me, now I am sharing this with:

Sweet Stampin: Christmas Creations

Use Your Stuff: Christmas Treats The treat was gifting myself with the gold foil that does not require heat to set.

  1. Glad you experimented. It is a beautiful card! I see shine in the center, but not the foil you were after. I bought gilding flakes and am learning what works and doesn’t work. We shall see how it fares before I give up on the experiment.
