using dies with the foil press

Did you know that you can use your low-profile dies with the Gemini Foil Press?
I love that my dies can do double duty, cutting and foiling! And I have to tell you a secret, I haven't found many hot foil dies (the dies that are designed for use with hot foil & the foil press,) that I dig soooo I'm extra happy that I can use my low-profile cutting dies.
The thickness of the cutting line on the dies often varies by brand so it's fun to test them out. These Hero Art heart dies have a really thin cutting line so it creates a very delicate foiled shape. You can see what I mean in this quick process video...


By the way, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Ellen Hutson is having a big, fun sale and you can stock up on some good tools including FOIL! You can check it out HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

that Dino is just too cute - and totally deserving of that fabulous pink-foiled heart, Carly!
I don't have any of the Gemini tools, yet! But I sure do love watching you, and Julie play! xx
