Day 119 - Hot foiling- Fail

One of the things I love about the Craft Outlet is it gives me the opportunity to try new things inexpensively.  This week I got a couple of these...

Here you can see it closer. 

And a couple of these. 

So of course I don't have a TODO machine.  I had to figure out something myself.  I started trying it in my cuttlebug, just to see what it would do. It tore the paper when used to emboss. 

Then I tried my laminating machine.  I layered the metal piece, foil, cardstock and wrapped in a folded piece of printer paper. My daughter helped. She was here visiting. It took many many runs through the laminating machine.  I did have a slight success. You can see the image slightly. You can see the foil on the edges though. Kind of smeared.  The foil was pink. 

Here was the next attempt. I heat it up on the stove and then ran though the laminator. 

It really didn't help but I might try again. Instead, we decided to use it like a stamp and try some sticky embossing powder.  Come back tomorrow to see the results.
