ThermOWeb and Sassy & Crafty recently teamed up with a collaboration between our two companies. Lynnea designs for both companies and shares two beautiful cards featuring Sassy & Crafty Stencils and Stamps and our Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO and Foils! It’s a perfect combination!
Sassy & Crafty Butterfly Cards with Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO
While the backgrounds dried I prepped the rest of my pieces. The Sassy & Crafty Flutter By Butterfly Stamp Set pairs PERFECTLY with the stenciled backgrounds! I wasn’t sure which ones I would use, so in the end I stamped all three and picked the ones that worked best with my design. I knew I would be using Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil on my backgrounds, so what’s better than a rainbow butterfly?! I did a gradient inking technique using the Catherine Pooler Date Night Ink Collection. I used Catching Rays, Do-Si-Do, and Pucker Up. I LOVE how they turned out! And it was so easy to do!
You’ll know the Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO is dry when it turns clear (instead of white) and is only slightly tacky. Let’s add some foil! Because I used the DUO Gel I have the choice of transferring foil with the heat and pressure from my laminator or just using pressure from my die cutting machine. I LOVE that! I chose to use my die cutting machine simply because it’s easier for me. I cut a piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil to be slightly larger than my background and placed it pretty side up onto my background. You want to make sure that the silver back side of the foil makes contact with your medium (whether thats gel, toner, or adhesive). I placed my foil and background into a typing paper carrier sheet and ran it through my die cutting machine. I slowly peeled back the foil backer and I had GORGEOUS foiled butterfly backgrounds!
All that’s left is to put the cards together! I added the sentiment strips with iCraft 3D Foam Strips and the butterflies with iCraft 3D Foam Squares. These cards have gorgeous shine, but are pretty simple. I like to use the iCraft Foam Adhesives when I have a simple card so there is a lot of dimension to my elements.
