Wow it's November already and time for a new STAMPlorations Stencil Challenge. This month I tried a new to me technique - foiling with stencils. I really like this technique and it worked pretty easily. I need to improve on the spreading of the Transfer Gel over the stencil though.

Here is my first attempt and card using the ARTplorations stencil Holly Background:

I taped the stencil on top of a 4.25" x 5.5" piece of Kraft card stock. Using an icing spatula I spread Thermo Web Transfer Gel over the stencil.

I removed the stencil and set aside the panel to dry - it gets glossy looking when it is dry and ready to be foiled.  I used gold Deco Foil and laid it on top of the panel (with the shiny side up) and put it inside a folded piece of computer paper and ran it through my laminator. That part was easy peasy and fun!

I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel and adhered a vellum Luggage Tag Nesting tag with the CUTplorations phrase die Peace Love Joy cut from red glitter paper.

  1. Those are great backgrounds....such pretty colors! Do you need a laminator to do this?
