Ep. 1018 – Thermoweb iCraft Deco Foil

IMG_5587

Foiling is a hot trend right now, so today I am showing you 4 ways to use the Thermoweb iCraft Deco Foil! First off I used the Deco Foil Transfer Adhesive with some stamps. I squeezed out the adhesive onto my craft mat, then used a sponge to apply it to my stamp. I stamped onto my project, then placed the foil over the image and burnish it on. When using the foil you want the silver side down, and the colourful side up! I found if you wait too long, the glue will dry, so once you stamp, place your foil right away. On the page above you can see some of the stamped texture on the page.

Next I used the foil with my dot adhesive. I randomly applied the adhesive around the page and then added the foil. You can do this with any dry adhesive, I just like the look of the dots.

I cut the butterflies out of the foam adhesive sheets using the Tim Holtz Mini Butterfly die. To get 2 colours of foil, I used the foil sheet that I had used on the dot adhesive. The left over foil got adhered to the butterfly. Then I took a second colour to fill in the rest of the shape!

Finally, I used the Deco Foil Transfer Adhesive once again – this time I put little trail dots straight from the bottle. Since this is a thicker application, you need the glue to dry for 20-30 minutes before applying the foil. You can use the Deco Foil Transfer Adhesive on Fabric as well!

So there you have 4 ways to add foil to your projects! Feel free to add more ways you like to use foil in the comments!

Ep. 1017 – National Craft Month – Gloss Gel Skins

IMG_5291

March is National Craft Month and I am celebrating by teaming up with May from CraftWithMay.com! Each of us is sharing a technique using Gloss Gel! I made the canvas pictured above! I used the Gloss Gel to make an Acrylic Skin. I mixed Liquitex Inks with the Gloss Gel to make the colour I wanted. I then used my Palette Knife to spread the Gel very thin onto my craft mat. Now is the tricky part – you need to let this dry which takes at least a day!! Once it is dry, use your palette knife to lift it off of the craft mat.

To make my canvas I sprayed the background using Liquitex Spray Paints and Crafter’s Workshop stencils. I took my Acrylic Skins and cut them using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die. I placed a piece of parchment paper between the skin and the plastic cutting mat to protect the skin. I cut the flower from 2 different skins and layered them together. I used a brad to hold the flower together. Once I decided where to place the flower I doodled and painted my stem. I then punched a hole in the canvas for the brad to go through. I used my Script Journal Stencil to add the word ‘create’ and finished the canvas with the WRMK Gold Sequins Stickers.

No go and visit May at CraftWithMay.com to see what she created!

BTS: 03/03/15 – New Stamps

IMG_5558

I don’t know if it is the weather that is getting me down or that I have had so much to do prepping classes and videos before I go away, but I needed something new to inspire me. I made a trip over to Bizzy B’s – our local stamp store – and I came across some Prima Stamps by Julie Nutting. All these cute girls, plus this cute Mermaid! They were inexpensive, so I bought a few to play with. The Mermaid was the perfect stamp to use with the Pentacolor products I needed to test out! All the products worked great together and I can’t wait to show you the outcome in April (yes – I work weeks ahead).

IMG_6008

Today I am showing you some Spellbinder Card Creator Dies. These are 4 1/4″x5 1/2″ die sets. They come with a rectangle die that is 4 1/4″x5 1/2″ as well as a design die with a pattern. Above is the Contemporary Circle set.

This is the Cascading Dots set.

And the Floral Die set. Above I cut each of the dies from white paper and layered them over a colourful background.

However, there are many ways to use these dies. Above I used the Floral and Cascading Dots as stencils on 2 of the tags. I then used the paper from the Floral Stencil and glued it onto the tag. The tag on the right has paper from the Contemporary Circle die.

On this card I used the Cascading Dots as a stencil on the bottom and then put Texture Paste trough the Floral die stencil.

IMG_6017

On this card I used Texture Paste through the Contemporary Circle die stencil. The greetings are from my Script Journal and Script Sentiment stencils.

Finally I made an art journal page and used the Floral and Cascading Dots dies as stencil on the page!
