supplies: white, several ivories, pale yellow, green, and black cardstock, Altenew Watercolor Stripes stencil, Deco Foil Rainbow Shattered Glass foil, transfer gel and stencil pal, Altnew Fantasy Floral dies, sentiment from Simon's Beautiful Flowers, adhesive foam strips to separate flower layers
I love foiling with a stencil and transfer gel! And now with the new stencil pal, spreading the gel smoothly is a piece of cake! It's a nice large 5 1/2" long, SO much better than a credit card!
Here I used a striped stencil and tried to get a rainbow effect with the foil, then just added my flower and a sentiment. With all the color in the stripes, I opted for a simple cream/off-white flower and a small black sentiment.
The next card is REALLY simple, and lets the stencil and the gorgeous foil shine. This one has blues, golds, and greens in it.
supplies: white and green cardstock, gold foil cardstock, Newton's Nook Tropical Leaves stencil, transfer gel, stencil pal, and Emerald Watercolor foil, lucky clover distress ink, IO Greeting Top Edgers sentiment die
As I did above, I spread the gel through the stencil, let it dry, then added a sheet of Watercolor foil to it before heating it in my laminator. I didn't like the foiling against white, so I sponged on some lucky clover distress ink. Next I sliced my foiled panel into 2 pieces, and added my gold foil sentiment die at the top of one, and edged the other panel with more of the gold foiled cardstock.
My final card is all Tim Holtz - this Scribbles stencil is one of my favorites of his!
supplies: white, black, and Cotton Candy cardstock, Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil, Gina K Bubblegum foil, transfer gel, stencil pal, Detailed Butterflies dies, Big Chat stickers, Tiny Heart sprinkle
Since Tim's stencils don't cover an entire card width-wise, after I'd foiled it, I trimmed it down and framed it with white cardstock before adding it to the Cotton Candy base. And I added a little Tiny Heart sprinkle to the butterfly.
And one final card, using the same stencil as above, and the same foil as my first card.
supplies: white cardstock, Scribbles stencil, Rainbow Shattered foil, transfer gel, stencil pal, sentiment from Simon's (retired) Birthday Flowers, Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Borders 2 die
Thanks for sticking with me on this long post. Foiling stencils is a great easy way to add some oomph to a card!
