Hi Cardmaking Friends! Emily Mydlowski here with you today sharing a new-to-me foiling technique using the Ink Blot Shop Wild Hatch Herringbone Stencil and some foiling products from ThermOWeb.
To get started, I used a rubber craft spatula to add a layer of transfer gel through the Ink Blot Shop Wild Hatch Herringbone Stencil to both a purple and white cardstock card panel. I let the gel dry for a little over an hour…the gel was dry but a little tacky. I added a piece of foil (pretty side up) to the purple and white transfer gel card stenciled card panels. To transfer the foil to the panel, I ran each panel through my Mini Minc Machine with the heat set at 4. (If you do not have a heat applicator, you can also run the gel panel with deco foil through your die cutting machine—the pressure from your die cutting machine will also transfer the foil). I peeled away the foil transfer sheet to reveal the herringbone rainbow foiled panels and beautiful negative pieces of foil which I turned into two additional background panels.
Using double-sided adhesive sheets, I peeled off the top layer and applied it to both a white and black card panel. Then I removed the second layers of the adhesive sheet and applied the deco foil negative sheets starting from the top and smoothing the foil down the panel. I also used the side of bone folder to remove any tiny air bubbles.
For my cards, I used the Giant Hey You Stamp Set to add black and white heat embossed sentiments and cute clay heart embellishments to each of the foiled card bases.
So there we are friends, three stenciled rainbow foiled cards. I hope you enjoyed my post today. Thanks for stopping by and Big Paper Hugs!
