Hey peeps. I’m so excited as I received my first Simon Says Stamp Stamptember order. I couldn’t wait to play with this gorgeous stencil called Holiday Foliage from Simon Says Stamp. As soon as I saw it on the site I knew I wanted to pull out my Therm O Web Deco Foil transfer gel so I could foil with rainbow foil from Therm O Web. Using the Holiday Foliage stencil and the deco foil transfer gel afforded me the opportunity to make something amazing.
This product is so easy to use. All you need to do is smooth on some of the transfer gel through a stencil, peel off the stencil and your design off to the side to dry. Once it is dried (it will go from a creamy white to a shiny clear coating) you are ready to foil. Shifting the rainbow foil to all use a portion of the colors was perfect for this design. To adhere the foil to the design I ran this it through my laminator and then the giggled began. As I peeled back the foil to reveal my design I could of burst with happiness. I mean, who wouldn’t love their holiday foliage to be in these colors?
Keeping my panel very simple to not distraction is a perfect way to show this design element. To keep my panel from laying directly onto my card base, I trimmed it down and placed it on some fog card stock from Simon Says Stamp. Next I ran my joyful die from Simon Says Stamp through my Gemini Jr. using the Therm O Web foam adhesive sheet. I peeled off the protective covering and applied some gold deco foil over it.
Now it was time to bring more gold on my card so I trimmed a strip of foam adhesive and covered it with gold deco foil. Placing it neatly down the side of the design piece I was able to bring the design all together. I place everything on a white card base and added faux stitching around the foliage piece for some added interest.
I truly love how this came out and I can’t wait to make more background with this stencil and Therm O Web products. To see more projects using Therm O Web products, you can click my Therm O Web gallery. Thanks for stopping by today. See you back here soon.
