It seems like I'm always saying that I can't pick a favorite color from the Rina K Designs Neon Electro -POP lineup! I wanted to play with the Neon Glitz Glitter Gels and really see what they look like as full stenciled backgrounds. Might as well do all the colors, right?!
I sprayed the back of the Pink & Main Petals Stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered the stencil onto a piece of white cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal to spread some of the Neon Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil and then peeled back the stencil to reveal the glittery neon goodness! I used a baby wipe to wipe away the extra Neon Glitz Glitter Gel and placed the stencil onto another piece of cardstock and spread on another color of the Neon Glitz.
These backgrounds are just PERFECT! They remind me of summer! I set them aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the pieces for my project. Glitz Glitter Gel doesn't take long to dry - another reason to love this product! My backgrounds were ready to go in about an hour!
I'm completely head over heels in LOVE with the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! They are shiny and remind me of the hard candy coating on a gumball! There are so many ways to use them! One of my favorite products is the White Double Sided Foam Adhesive Sheets. These are great for cutting with a paper trimmer or die cutting. I've always loved using them with foils, but I think I have a new favorite product to use them with! The Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! You should have seen my excitement when I die cut them for the first time! PERFECTION!
I wanted to die cut the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets with the Pink & Main Heart Puzzle Die. I thought this die was a great way to mix and match all four colors of the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! I trimmed down pieces of Double Sided Adhesive Sheets so they were slightly larger than the Heart Puzzle Die. I removed one side of the backer sheet and simply placed one sheet of the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets over the Foam Adhesive Sheet. Then I placed the Heart Puzzle Die on top and ran it through my die cutting machine. That's it! It seriously couldn't be easier! No need to peel back the Enamel Transfer Sheet when you use them with double sided adhesive. Nothing is more simple than that!
I die cut all four colors of the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets with the Heart Puzzle Die and pulled apart the pieces and then (quite literally) puzzle pieced them back together to create multicolored heart puzzle embellishments! Every one of them is different, but similar! I glued them onto my backgrounds with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive. This adhesive is AMAZING! It holds tight onto textures like the Neon Glitz Glitter Gel backgrounds.
All that's left to do is finish off these cards with a sentiment. I thought about adding a white die cut sentiment, but I decided to go with black. I think the black and neons work together fabulously! I used the Pink & Main Thanks Dies and Hello Dies. I cut three times from black cardstock for each sentiment and stacked them together with iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive and glued the sentiment to the center of the die cut heart puzzle. I hope you've enjoyed this tutorial! And that you'll experiment with your Rina K Designs Neon Glitz Glitter Gels and Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! See you soon!
