I'm up on the Newton's Nook Designs Blog today sharing a REALLY AWESOME Technique I like to call Patchwork Foiling with Stencils!! With the Holidays behind us I thought it would be the PERFECT Time to create some MUCH NEEDED Thank You Cards!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the look of Foiling, especially when used with a Stencil!! I find the NEW Deco Foil Transfer Gel SUPER Easy to use and it makes Patchwork Foiling Possible!!
I decided to use the BEAUTIFUL Holiday Foliage and Snowfall Stencils for my cards today, but you could use ANY Stencil you wanted!! I also wanted to show what the differences were between doing it on White or Black Cardstock!! You could totally try this technique on ANY color of Cardstock!! I Placed the Stencil Down and Taped the edges to my Surface!! Then I used a Spreading Knife to spread the Deco Foil Transfer Gel all over!! Remove the Tape and pull the stencil straight up!! Set it aside to dry!! Once its dry you can cut the pieces of Deco Foil by Therm O Web needed to cover the Images, using small pieces of Washi Tape to hold them in place! Layer to cover ALL of the Images and then run it through your Foiling Machine!! Once its ran through you'll remove all of the Foil Pieces and see your Patchwork Design!! It's SO FUN to see how it turns out!! Then I used several different Sentiments from (Flaky Family, Shades of Autumn, and Simply Sentimental) I layered different Pieces from the Frames & Flags Die Set to finish my Cards off!!
I'm hoping to share a Video on this Technique, but until then I hope you can understand the Process!!??
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
