You’re Out of this World by Shemaine Smith

Starfield-Cosmic Newton by Shemaine Smith

I chose to create with the Newton’s Nook Stencils and coordinating stamps because I knew they would pair perfectly with our Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Deco Foils.

I used some Purple tape to hold the Newton’s Nook Starfield stencil in place and a spatula to spread the transfer gel over my cardstock. Then I let it dry. The transfer gel does completely dry within an hour but I prefer to let it dry overnight.

Designer Tip: I usually cut several pieces of cardstock to stencil with the transfer gel and let them dry and then file them away for later use.TooltipText

To create the background for my card, I used some of our new Purple Tape to hold the Newton’s Nook Starfield stencil in place and a spatula to spread the transfer gel over my cardstock. Then I let it dry. The transfer gel does completely dry within an hour but I prefer to let it dry overnight.

Next, cut a piece of deco foil slightly larger than your cardstock (mine is cut 4 X 5 1/3 ) and run it through your laminator.

Peel back the foil to reveal the amazing results of Newton’s Nook Starfield stencil design! So beautiful and textured!

I chose the rocket ship to color with Copic markers and framed with an oval frame die. To adhere them to the front of my card, I used 3D WHITE FOAM SQUARES • COMBO PACK.

For my second card, I used the same technique but this time I used Newton Loves Coffee and the Pawprints Stencil.

A Birthday Brew by Shemaine Smith

For my second card, I used the same technique but this time I used Newton Loves Coffee and the Pawprints Stencil. After the I applied the DECO FOIL™ TRANSFER GEL and let it dry overnight, I foiled the Pawprints stencil with DECO FOIL™ TRANSFER SHEETS • PEWTER.

I stamped my images and cut them out to adhere to my card base. I used some of the smaller images in the set to create a background collage.

Thank you for stopping by today!

    These are so cute! That’s a great idea to do several backgrounds at once and leave to dry and be ready to use!

    The foil is PERFECT for the stars! I saw that you used your new purple tape. I am dying to try that. I would like to die cut it…
