Brutus Monroe Blog Hop Collaboration with Therm O Web

Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

Today we have something a little different for you and it's a whole lot of fun! We are having a collaboration with Therm O Web, so there will be lots of foiling going on! Therm O Web has some new products and a couple of those will be used below. Be sure to start at the beginning of the hop with Brutus Monroe so you don't miss a thing from our design team. Therm O Web has graciously offered a $25.00 gift card to one lucky commentator so be sure to leave a comment on each blog along the hop! And then hop on over to the Therm O Web blog to see what their design team has created for the collab as well!



You should have arrived from Berina Febin's Blog, if not you can always start at the beginning of the hop at the Brutus Monroe Blog!


Today I created two cards using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel with Brutus Monroe stencils. I don't know what it is about this technique but it is so fun and satisfying, and if you've never tried it I highly recommend that you do. 

Here's the first card I made using the new foil from Therm O Web, Shattered Glass, isn't it gorgeous? I also used one of my favorite stencils from Brutus Monroe Polka


To begin my card I used another new product from Therm O Web, Purple Tape! This is a new low tack tape made especially to hold paper in place and not tear it when it's being removed. And it does just that and I love it! 
I taped my stencil partially on the Kraft cardstock and then taped the stencil to my Media Mat. Using a palette knife I spread the Deco Foil Transfer Gel over the stencil and made sure to get an even coverage. Then immediately wash my stencil, palette knife, and mat. You don't want the gel to dry on your things, it will be harder to clean later.   



This is how the Transfer Gel looks after I removed the stencil from the paper. I set it to the side and let it dry for a couple of hours.


Below is how the Transfer Gel looks when it is completely dry, it will be clear.  


It's a good idea to have your laminator on preheating at least twenty minutes before you use it. Cut your foil a little bigger than the piece needed to be foiled, and placed the foil shiny side up into your carrier sheet and run through your laminator. 



Here's what it will look like when foiled. 


I also foiled the word die sentiment using the Deco Foil PeelnStick Toner Sheets. The way I like to do this is to cut a piece of the toner sheet a little larger than my word die, then cut a piece of foil a little larger than the toner sheet and the same way as before, place the foil shiny side up over the toner sheet, place into the carrier sheet and run through the laminator. Then die cut the word with my manual die cutting machine, remove the backing and stick in place! 


I trimmed my card base with a rectangle die and adhered it to a A2 sized card base. I adhered my thanks die with gold thread underneath to dress it up even more and added Acrylic Bubbles for interest and that finished my card. 


Here's my second card using the new Therm O Web Jade foil and the Arrows stencil from Brutus Monroe.



And that's it for me today, which one was your favorite?
