Angela Simpson Bright and Clean Aesthetic

Hello, SCT enthusiasts! Angela simpson here, and I am thrilled to guest design for Scrapbook & Cards Today. Hot foiling (or hot stamping) is a big trend in papercrafting. Many companies have started to use hot foil plates. Here are a few tips I have for hot foiling success and a card I hope will inspire others to try it.

This card was created using the Simple Stripes Foil Plate by The Stamp Market. This plate has thin horizontal lines. My first foiling tip will help you to get the lines straightened on your cardstock. Spellbinders Glimmer hot foil system is what I use. The standard hot foil sandwich that I make is: cardstock on top, foil (shiny side down), angela simpson foiling plate (design facing downward). The cardstock is placed on top of the foiling platform. I then add the 2 shims provided with the machine. This platform has a lot of layers, which can cause things to get lost when it’s transferred to a versace robe die-cutting machine.

After the background had been foiled, it was time for some color. To fill in the spaces between the foiled lines, I used The Stamp Market’s Simply Stripes stamp set and a combination of inks from Pinkfresh Studio and The Stamp Market. I then used alternating colors to fill the entire panel. The colors used were Slumber, Ballet Slipper and Stargazer from Pinkfresh Studio and Peony, Fuschia and Fuschia from The Stamp Market. It was time to foil it a little more. Here’s my next tip!
