The Neon Electro-POP collection for Rina K Designs from ThermOWeb has 4 stunningly bright neon colors - Poppin' Pink, Orange Glow, Hello Yellow, and Screamin' Green. There are new Flock Transfer Sheets, Glitz Glitter Gels, and Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets. I chose to use all four colors of the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets for my cards!
Seriously these Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets are AMAZING! It's like enamel dots wherever you put the transfer sheets! It's just like hard, shiny candy! You can use them with Deco Foil Transfer Gel (Blanco OR DUO!), Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets, or Foam Adhesive! So many ways to use this new product!
I've used the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets on a previous project for smaller embellishment areas and I loved it so much that I decided to use them for full backgrounds! The shine is INCREDIBLE!
I wanted to create full backgrounds with the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets. I knew I would be using the Rina K Designs Sending Sunshine stamp set, so I picked out a stencil that would work with the tropical vibe of the stamp set. There are two mediums that you can use to transfer the Neon Enamel Sheets to a stenciled background - Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO and Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco. It's best to use DUO Gel for light backgrounds and Blanco Gel for dark backgrounds. So far I've been playing with the Rina K Neon Electro-POP line on white cardstock, so I decided to go with bold, black backgrounds to really make the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets pop!
I sprayed the back of my stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it to a piece of black cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal to spread a layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the top of the stencil. I should mention that in my excitement to play with these new Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets I got a bit heavy handed with my Stencil Pal. I could hit myself in the head! It's a problem I always seem to have! You want to apply the Blanco Transfer Gel evenly so that the Enamel Sheets will transfer smoothly. In the end I still think the backgrounds turned out fabulously! I let the Blanco Transfer Gel dry for a few hours. I trimmed pieces of the Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets to be slightly larger than the backgrounds and placed the Enamel Transfer Sheets over the Blanco Gel backgrounds. I set my laminator to the 5 mil setting and let it heat up until it was really hot and ran the backgrounds through the machine with a parchment paper carrier sheet.
I peeled back the Enamel Transfer Sheets from the backgrounds and I'm left with a hard shiny surface wherever the Transfer Gel Blanco was applied. LIKE NEON GUMBALLS!! I'm OBSESSED! I used the Rina K Designs Electro-POP inks to stamp and layer a bunch of flowers, leaves, and fruity images from the Sending Sunshine stamp set and die cut them with the Sending Sunshine die set. I love the neon on neon summer vibes! I layered up the images onto the cards using iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive and Gina K Designs White Foam Adhesive Squares.
I'm so excited about these new Rina K Designs Neon Enamel Transfer Sheets! They just may be my favorite of the new Rina K Designs Neon lineup! Remember to hop along through the rest of the blogs leaving comments along the way to be entered to win one of two $50 gift cards to the ThermOWeb store!
