Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I had an afternoon of happy accidents recently when I was playing with Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. I ended up creating a card and a scrapbook page. I started with my MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap.
I wanted to see if I could add the Flock Transfer Sheets to MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap using the Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. The Transfer Gel DUO works two ways; you can transfer flocking or foil using heat from a laminator OR pressure from a die-cutting machine. Transfer Gel DUO is a permanent transfer medium that dries clear and remains tacky for easy use.
I spread the Transfer Gel DUO through stencils and laid a piece of the Flock Transfer Sheet on top and ran it through my die cut machine. A couple of very interesting things happened at this point.
- The flock transferred beautifully to the burlap.
- The negative effect that remained on the piece of Flock Transfer was very bold and striking.
- The MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap acted like an embossing folder and it left a fabulous textured imprint on the flocking.
For this card, I layered the burlap embossed Flock Transfer piece at the bottom. I stamped the flower using the Therm O Web Gina K. Designs Graphic Sunflower stamp and dies with Ranger Simon Hurley create. ink. Adhering burlap can be tricky so I used the Therm O Web iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive. I just loved how the burlap and the negative flocked piece turned out using the Ranger Simon Hurley create. stencil so I created a layout using those two pieces. I added a punch of elements cut from flocking using Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies.
I created a clothesline using random (and old) pieces of thread, doodads, and ribbon and some 30-year old beads. I used three colors of burlap: Blue Sky, Blue Diamond, and Tuscan Gold. The title was cut from the Flock Transfer Sheet as well.
I’m a big fan of texture and layers. These two projects were rocking my afternoon. I will definitely be adding more Flock Transfer to burlap in the future.
I hope you have some time to do something creative today – It’s good for the soul.
