Have you ever wanted to create your own foiled embellishments but not sure how to go about it? It’s dead easy to do and enables you to add that personal touch to your projects! I have created my own floral embellishments by combining ThermoWeb products with the XOXO coordinating stamp and die set from WaffleFlower.

Deco Foil Stamped Flowers Instructions and Tips:
Mixed Media Medium
In the conceptualization of this project, I knew I wanted to find a way to add some sparkly foil. I played around quite a bit with the various mediums that enable you to add foil and ultimately settled upon the Rebekah Meier Mixed Media Medium. I tried Deco Foil Transfer Gel but it was too thick and the stamped images didn’t come out as clear. The thinner consistency of the Mixed Media Medium made for much cleaner images. If you don’t have this amazing ThermoWeb product, you can use Transfer Gel but you will need to thin it out some and make sure you spread it thinly on your mat so it doesn’t “glob” too much on the stamp, thus distorting the image.
Be sure to wipe the medium off of your stamp as soon as you are finished stamping the image as it is a medium that can dry to your stamp and be difficult to remove later on.
I used two different foils; Deco Foil Pink Quartz and Rebekah Meier Patina. Place a piece of Pink Quartz on top of the flowers, place it inside a piece of folded parchment paper and run it through a preheated laminator. Repeat the same steps with a Patina foil on top of the other floral stamped images. Remembering that the colored, shiny side of the foil should be facing out and visible.
Using the newer 1/2 inch Purple Tape, secure the appropriate matching die from WaffleFlower over the foiled, stamped image and run this through a manual cutting machine. and voila!! You have some great handmade embellishments for your cardmaking and/or memory keeping projects!
