Default Recollections Foil paper

Hi Everyone I have some foil that I would like to use in my Big Shot but I can't find any tutorials with ideas or suggestions. Does anyone know of a site that has some ideas for this paper. Also looking for metal sheet tutorials and suggestions. Thank for your help

Default foil paper

I am not familiar with their foil paper, but use foils sheets by Ranger often. I LOVE to adhere them to paper and then emboss them. I use pastes, or distress ink to add color and even make them look older. Tim Holtz uses the Ranger one often and probably has videos on it. I know he uses them on his tags.

Winnie, what do you use to adhere the foil sheets to paper -- and what kind of paper do you use? Is cardstock too thick or heavy?

Iris, here is a card I did using gold foil wrapping paper. I cut the foil paper and adhered it to white cardstock using my ATG gun. Then I ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss it. Then I die cut the shapes.

The gold foil paper was a little "fiddly" to work with and wanted to curl, since it was wrapped on a roll. But once I got it stuck to the cardstock, it was fine.

I was so happy to find this out. Now I have a huge roll of gold foil which will last me for cards for years, lol. It only cost me about $4 using my coupon at Hobby Lobby.

I think this is what I just used on this card. I did not have the package, but your post just reminded me where I got it. Is it pretty heavyweight and reflective? I used the silver for the mirror - just punched an oval and set it in an embossed frame. Then I had to go back and cover the back of the dress form to make it prettier when I saw how much reflected.

Yes heavy weight and reflective. Guess I will just play with it and see what happens. TY

I made faux Dresden (German scrap) with some foil paper I got at a garage sale. You can see the tutorial & tips on my blog, if you're interested:
LoveLee Notes: Queen of Hearts Tag

I also used it for a grad card (embossed pennants) towards the bottom of the following post:
LoveLee Notes: Just a Note for the Graduate

I love the foil paper...but I've also used foil bags to add decor to tags too. I love the surprise feature of this idea:
LoveLee Notes: Well Worn, Well Loved

Hope that helps with a few more ideas. =)

TY for everyone's help. Here I sit embossing on foil and not too sure if I love it yet but it's winning me over little bit by little bit. TY again!
