Alice here today and I am so excited to be able to share some great news… Therm O Web has come out with several brand new products which I just know you are going to love!
First up – allow me to introduce you to a new type of adhesive called iCraft. iCraft is a thin, double sided adhesive that will be available in large dots, sheets, and tape… it’s thin enough to tear, punch, die cut or trim, but also strong enough to hold your projects together securely.
In addition to being so easy to use with punches and manual die cutting systems, I was thrilled to discover that it worked with my Silhouette! While you could easily apply a sheet of iCraft to the back of a piece of paper or cardstock and then run it through your machine, I was curious to see if I could cut the adhesive all by itself… and delighted to find out that I could. This opens up a whole world of possibilities!
Here is the iCraft sheet after being cut with my Silhouette. I love how cleanly it cut the edges.
I peeled off one side of the backing and adhered this piece directly to the front of the paper I planned to use for my card.
Then I peeled the protective liner off the front and added glitter directly to the adhesive.
and look at the results! sorry about the grainy photo, but I want to show you a close up of how crisply and cleanly the iCraft cuts, as well as how beautifully the glitter sticks to its edges.
I love the translucent sparkle it adds to the top of this card. The iCraft adhesive allows the details of the paper underneath to show through.
Here is another example I created with my Silhouette. I die cut a flourish from iCraft, adhered it to the front of this wedding invitation and sprinkled on some glitter.
I also punched a heart to add to the bottom of the insert.
I’m always surprised by what a big impact such tiny details can have… a few pennies worth of adhesive and glitter transforms plain paper and cardstock into something really special.
iCraft tape is also really helpful for adhering paper flowers. It can easily be torn, cut, punched, or die-cut into any shape you need. I used it to quickly adhere these layered flowers together.
To create this card, I simply tore a 2″ wide strip of iCraft and adhered it to the front of my card and then peeled off the protective liner from the front. As I rolled up each paper flower I firmly pressed it onto the adhesive. A few brads covered the centers of some of the larger flowers.
Did you happen to notice the subtle shimmer on these last few flower examples? That brings me to another fun new product from Therm O Web… Glitter Dust spray! Glitter Dust will be available in several colors and is just what it sounds like… a spray that applies a dusting of glitter to any surface. It’s an easy way to add some shimmer and sparkle, while still letting the underlying pattern and color show through.
So easy to add just a touch of sparkle to any of your projects. When I was finished with these flowers, I placed a piece of scrap paper over the background of the card and gave them a quick spray of Silver Glitter Dust. I loved how it adhered to the very edges of the rolled flowers. When you move this card from side to side, it really catches the light.
I used the Gold Glitter Dust to create the large shimmery heart on this card. I created a quick mask using Masking Magic and then sprayed on the glitter.
I love that it is transparent and allows the background to show through, yet at the same time as you move the card it really catches the light and creates a lovely sparkle.
Well, that’s it for today. I hope you are as excited as I am about these new products! Be sure to leave a comment and let us know what you think. Thanks!
