Bee Happy Foil card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "We're All A-Buzz".

All the crafting demos are so inspiring, and I was completely blown away by the Minc demo with Tim Holtz and Heidi Swapp a few days ago (check Heidi Swapp Instagram). Unfortunately I don't have the Minc Toner Ink, but I do have Distress Resist Spray, Minc Foil and the Mini Minc. I did some experimenting first, and I have several brands of foils, but Heidi's really works the best. The GoPress from Couture Creations stick in many more places than just the Resist Spray, which can be a really cool effect, but it's really unpredictable and therefor really hard to use.


I added color to the background with Distress Ink (Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber, Walnut Stain) and Distress Oxide (Walnut Stain) and some shimmer with Nuvo Shimmer Powder Solar Flare. With Distress Resist Spray I sprayed once over the Mini Honeycomb stencil and put it through the Mini Minc machine with foil. I always use a double folded sheet of printer paper instead of the transfer sheet. That works better for me.
I colored the Entomology stamps with Distress Reinkers (Mustard Seed, Wild Honey and Pumice Stone).

How can you not BEE happy when you look at this card! I love the background and watching your video. The foiling is very effective. I wish my Distress Resist spray nozzle worked...
