Tutorial: Foiling with New Toner Topper Packs

Hi everyone! 

Sam here with you today showing you how to quickly and easily pull together some shiny cards.


Do you have a laminator? Do you want to try a quick and easy way to get into foiling? Well you can with these new Toner Topper Paper Packs. The Toner Topper Paper Packs are now available in the LDRS shop, in addition to all the new fun playful stamps and dies with the February release.

There is something magical about adding a little bit of shine to a card to make it extra special. So let’s get started. I picked out a couple of sheets from the Geometric Toner Toppers 6x6 Paper Pack and Floral Toner Toppers 6x6 Paper Pack. Ready to foil.
  • Besides a laminator all you need to add is toner reactive foil to these Toner Topper Paper Packs. The options available for reactive foil colours are endless including rainbow and sparkly. I choose a variety of different colours of toner reactive foil from my stash. Cut the foil to approximately the same size as the 6x6 toner paper with a slight overhang.
  • Lay the toner topper pattern facing up and lay the pretty side of the foil facing up ontop of the toner sheet. (Basically both toner and foil, pretty sides face up towards you)
  • Take this foil sandwich and run it through a preheated laminator in between a piece of folded parchment paper or laminator carrier.
  • Once you’ve run it through the laminator you can peel back the film to reveal the gorgeous foiled toner sheet.
  • BONUS: Run the left over piece of foil film on the Solid Toner Sheets following same above instructions to get a reverse foiled image on black.

  • Stepping up the foiled background by adding some ink blending overtop.
  • Pull a sheet from the Geometric Toner Toppers 6x6 Paper Pack and a silver sparkly foil. Follow above foiling instructions.
  • For this background ink blend Pink Tutu, Mrs. Periwinkle and Peachy Keen over the background
  • INK BLENDING TIP: I tried ink blending before foiling the Toner Topper Paper Packs and after foiling them. It works great both ways. I would just take a cloth and lightly wipe off any possible remaining ink off either the toner or foil.
  • To showcase a lot of the foiled background I chose to create a 5”x7” card base and adhere a 4”x6” cut piece of foil background.
  • Again to keep the focus on the pretty background apply a Peony from Peony Layering Dies separated from the background by a white card stock circle. The Peony is ink blended with Pink Tutu and Mrs. Periwinkle. (I think these Peony Layering Dies are my absolute favourite item from this release. When I built this ink blended peony I definitely let out a little squeal of delight).
  • For a subtle sentiment silver emboss the Hello on black from the Spring Gift Tag Stack. Cut it down and add it ontop of the Peony.

Lucky for me I still have leftover foiled backgrounds and pieces to turn into more cards. Hope you enjoyed the cards and learned a few things along the way. Happy papercrafting : )
