Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a super easy card using Deco Foil and Die Cuts!

While I was at Creativiation in January, my friends from Thermoweb gave me a couple of the new Watercolor Deco Foil!! I have to say they are so pretty!! I haven’t had a chance to play with them until now.

Take a look at a picture I posted on Instagram when I came back:

Aren’t these colors pretty?  Here are the names:

  1. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amber Watercolor
  2. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Summer Rainbow Watercolor
  3. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Amethyst Watercolor
  4. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Lapis Watercolor
  5. Deco Foil Transfer Sheets Emerald Watercolor

Since its St. Patrick’s Day, I figured today is the best time to use the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil!

Take a look at my card:

I love the watercolor effect this foil gives off.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I measured the Simon Says Stamp Lucky To Know You die so that I could measure the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheets and theEmerald Watercolor Deco Foil.
  2. I placed the Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil on top of the Deco Foil Peel n Stick Toner Sheet and ran it through my laminator.
  3. Once the sheet comes out of the laminator, die cut the foil sheet.
  4. Since the toner sheet is a peal and stick, all you have to do is adhere it to the black cardstock.

Take a closer look:

Nice and easy. Using Deco Foil and Die Cuts are a fun way to make a quick card in no time.

What do you think?  I would love to hear from you below!

Did You Know Series!

I’m back again this week with the same product that I talked about last month.

It’s the @primamarketinginc Christina Adolph Adhesive Rub-Ons! I can’t get enough of these rub-ons!! You can do so much with them.

1. I showed you how to use foil with them last month and this past Saturday.
2. Yesterday, I show you how to use them with embossing powder.
3. Today, I’m going to show you what they look like on top of a watercolor panel using all of the goodies you see above!

The shine is amazing!!  No stamping required!! These cards were done in 6 mins tops. The watercolor was heat set.

Here are some closeups:

Note: you have to rub just a little bit harder since the watercolor paper has some tooth!

I created a video to show you how I used the rub-ons with foil to create the purple card above.

Any questions?  Let me know below!!

Adding Foil To A Watercolor Panel

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today because I’ve received a couple of questions regarding the cards I made early today with my foiled handwriting.

So I recreated a watercolor panel and used a stencil to show how I use the pen.

Check out this process:

Foiling 8

I’m using Prima Watercolor Confections Tropicals, Archers Watercolor Paper, some water, paintbrushes and clean water.

Foiling 1

I added some clean water to the watercolor panel then I added the colors to the water. I watched the colors move on the paper.

Foiling 2

Then I heat set the paint.  I would let it dry by itself but for the sake of this tutorial I sped the drying process.

Foiling 3

After that I added more color since the colors muted some during the drying process. I heat set it again.

Foiling 4

Once the panel was dry, I took a Simon Stamp Stencil Raindrops Stencil to show how you add the foil using the Thermoweb Deco Foil Adhesive Pen.  I applied the adhesive to each of the tear drops.

Foiling 5

Once I added all of the adheasive, I cut a piece of Thermoweb Deco Foil Champagne to the watercolor panel.  Then I placed it on my new Sizzix Big Shot Plus and rolled it through.

The pressure of the rollers seals the foil onto the adheasive.

Foiling 6

Look at that pretty foil tear drops on that watercolor panel.  It’s so pretty in person. Now I have to figure what I’m going to do with this panel!!  Future card front.

I hope this tutorial has helped you understand how to use the new Deco Foil Pen.

One more thing, the pen does pick up some of the watercolor when you rub it on the card panel.

Foiling 7

I just rubbed it off on a piece of scrap paper and its fine.

What do you think?
