Today’s tutorial was written by Ashley Newell and it shows you how to add transfer foil to your images. The tutorial goes hand in hand with today’s Product review. It is all about Stix2 adhesives. We were given Stix2 adhesive as well as some of their transfer foil, beads and glitter to try out their products. Fun, fun, fun!


For my sample I inked the Donna Downey stamp first in Peeled Paint, then with a bit of Forest Moss, misted it with water and stamped it on Neenah Solar White. It was cut out with Label 1 Nestabilities and sponged with Wild Honey distress ink while the die was still on the paper. The grid is from Unity’s Capture Life stamp set. It was stamped over the image with Vintage Photo.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. it was topped with Cosmo Cricket Early Bird paper that was cut in 3 15/16″ width. Where the two pieces overlap I stapled a strip of lace (Walmart) over it. To dress up the card I added a metal corner on the bottom right and a Recollection brad (Michaels) with a tiny piece of white taffeta ribbon on the top left. The butterfly was punched out with a Martha Stewart punch, Stix2 glitter was added and it was adhered to the card with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from Unity’s set Nothing but Blue Skies. It was stamped in the lower left hand corner in Jet Black Archival ink.
