Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Foiling with Transfer Gel and Stencils
Hello crafters, it’s Nina-Marie here with you today, featuring a fun way to use our Simon exclusive Heart Layers stencil set with Transfer Gel to achieve a gorgeous foiled finish to your stenciling!
The Heart Layers stencil set comes with 3 stencils that can be used on their own or together for a layered look. These cards are simple to create, yet provide a powerful punch with the final layer of stenciling foiled.
The foiling was created by applying ThermoWeb’s Transfer Gel through the stencil; once dry, you run your panel through a laminator or foiling machine to transfer a foil of your choice onto the gel. The Transfer Gel reacts with the heat and bonds the foil onto the gel-applied area only.
If you follow the steps I take in the video below, you too will end up with a design much like the ones you see here!
Each of these cards feature the Birch Press Designs Big Love and Big Hugs Sugar Script dies, along with additional sentiments from the Simon Says Stamp Love Messages stamp set.
I used a variety of ThermoWeb and Gina K. Designs foils as well, including Amber Watercolor, Twinkling Pink, Radiant Red, and Silver Sequins.
I hope you will tune in to the video below to see how I created this set of foiled cards, perfect for not just Valentines Day, but a year long too!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting… I will see you again very soon!
