Foiling with Transfer Gel and Stencils

Hello friends! I’m sharing a video I created for the Simon Says Stamp blog recently, which I really wanted to feature here too so you could catch it in case you missed it!

This technique is a fun way to use Simon’s exclusive Heart Layers stencil set that I designed, along with ThermoWeb’s Transfer Gel. Together they create a gorgeous foiled finish to your stenciling!

How I Made It
Foiling with Transfer Gel and Stencils

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.

Foiling with Transfer Gel and Stencils

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 above, 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 WatercolorTwinkling PinkRadiant Red, and Silver Sequins.

I hope you will tune in to the video at the top of this post to see how I created this set of foiled cards, perfect for any time of the year!

Thanks for stopping by and visiting… I will see you again very soon!
