Streuter GlueFOIL - CHA Sneek Peek & Give-A-Way!!!

Hey Everyone!



I just got the o.k. to share the lo's I made for Streuter's booth at CHA next week!!! They all feature Streuter's GlueFOIL - a sheet of metal which has their wonderful Glue Film bonded to one side. It comes in 3 finishes (at this time) - Aluminum, Stainless Steel and my favorite Copper! Mmmmmm, I just love that stuff!

Anyway, here are my lo's...

I used a variety of techniques as you can see...some of the FOIL has been embossed, painted, die-cut and hand cut. I also created a couple image transfers with it as well....

JOHNSON

You can't really tell by the photo but this lo is very dimensional. I used Ranger's Acrylic Dabbers to paint the metals, scissors to cut it and there is even a bit of Flower Soft scattered here and there as highlights :)

Summer Fun!

This is my nephew Matthew and Bob playing around this past summer....it was such fun! I embossed the side bar section with a wide variety of materials - everything from chicken wire to skeleton leaves! I also die cut the metal in my Zip-E-Mate.

Tiny Miracle

Another set of embossed tiles but this time using Cuttlebug embossing folders. The photo is an image transfer onto Stainless Steel GlueFOIL.

Snips & Snails

And my favorite - another lo featuring Matthew is another image transfer but this time onto Copper GlueFOIL....told you I loved this stuff. It's amazing how cool they turn out. The buttons and side strip are also copper FOIL that has been embossed.

  5. WOW I just can't wait to try out this stuff. It looks absolutely amazing. I just love those transfers that you've done, especially the feet. I think that's what I'd go for first, but then again I also have a bug and the patterns look so sharp and clear, so maybe I'd have to have a go at that too - Ooooohhhh the possibilites are endless!!! TFS and the chance of winning some to try xxx

  6. Oh wow this stuff looks amazing! I think I would love to make my own embellishments from it for cards, or background pieces. The embossing looks NEATO.

  9. Wow! what great stuff! I don't scrap much, but I could definitely see this on cards, from birthday candles to nameplates to die cut letters for a name.

  10. I really like the idea of running through the Cuttlebug for that embossed look. Think that would look cool as a roof on an altered house. How did you do that transfer? Have to try that!

  11. I like to emboss metal and having the adhesive already on the back would be awesome. I would use it at a collage party I plan to have...I think it would be great used as elements in a collage.

  12. hi Roni,
    i would love to try the image transfer--cool look

  13. Nice work, Roni. My fav is the Johnson house piece. Very "in" look right now.

    Once again great minds think alike. I was just thinking of this stuff last week and remembering that I got a sample of the silver and haven't used it yet. Too funny. I didn't even know you could emboss it - I thought it was silver foil. Or... wait... maybe that IS what I got and you're talking about something completely different. LOL - you're used to my "blondness" by now, right?

    Anyway, I would use the metal on the cover of an altered book for added dimension and flash. Fun!

    I'm still working with the glue film and trying not to wrinkle my papers. I think I will concentrate on using it to affix the heavier pieces.

    Thanks for the ideas and inspiration.

    (((( hugs ))))

  14. I think that it is great that you can emboss it... I really looks cool! It would make cool drangonflies and other bugs for cards and L.O.'s...

  15. Great new product! I would love to use it with my cuttlebug and alcohol inks. Charlene

  16. Your samples are gorgeous! the transfers are my favorite, it really makes the look I envision when metal is involved. Rustic. I'm gld we got to see these. What generation is that photo of your family from? or is it? I think it's awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  17. I would use the gluefoil for making jewelry. Think it has all sorts of potential to use with polymer clay and would love the opportunity to experiment with it!

    I think I would cover a book or a cigar box cover... i love the way it embosses, too! the world is our oyster with this stuff! Hope you're having a wonderful time.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow! I wish I'd never have seen this stuff. I think it would be awesome on any card or page, and the embossing is so cool. I think I would like to emboss it and make stick it to a pre-existing picture frame. Oh, and Christmas cards and Thanksgiving cards, and well...everything!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Not sure how I would use it yet, HOWEVER I just got a new cuttlebug die and embosser in the shape of a glorious crown, I think that would be great! I cant wait to try.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Embossing the foil is so beautiful. I would use this on a layout for my son's band. It would be very cool, sharp and slick for a band layout.

  22. Oooohh! I would lov to lay my hands on that stuff! Embossed, little alcoinks and a touch of clear or gold UTEE... MMmm Yummy!

  23. Wow, it looks so amazing embossed in the little squares! Could you make metal-looking flowers I wonder? i'd love to have a play anyway and see! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think it would be awesome for layouts, cards, and milti-medium species! I bet it would be cool to put a verdigris finish on the copper and use that! I'd also take the aluminum and buff it really shiny like a mirror!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love metal. Period. The suggestions for a house roof- that was what I thought of at first as well. Also, covers for altered books, altered jewelry, frames, endless possibilities. One advantage to using it would be the adhesive is already attached.

    ReplyDelete
  26. This looks soooooo cool! Love what you did with it! I'd love to have it to make artist trading cards with!

    ReplyDelete
  27. wow! Love this I would without a doubt be using this with my embossing folders on cards.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I think it would make for a great frame or an embellishment or a trim for a card....possibilities are endless....
    huge hugs

  29. It looks like fun stuff. I've never used it, but your transfer on the copper is really beautiful. I would love to emboss on it, and use it for jewelry pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think I would like to alcohol ink it with the new alcohol colors! That would be really great to try!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just love the way the embossing looks on the foil...and I would use it for frames on vintage cards. Thank you for the inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am thinking about using it for some yummy embellishments. I love to use soda cans for some embellishments and add AI...too fun...I can see an album cover coming together! TFS!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Roni, I can't believe how amazing you are. You managed to do those projects for Streuter AND continue to work on your book?!! You are Wonder Woman!! LOL!
    I love all the projects but the embossed tiles are just spectacular. I would love to see these projects in person because I know that photos don't capture the full effect. If I had some of that "stuff", I'd want to experiment with embossing it using found objects!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've never used it before , but it looks like wonderful stuff!!! Love how you've used it....I reckon it would look good onmy scrapbook pages of my 2 daughters. xx

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow...love your designs...looks like that would be great to play with.

    ReplyDelete
  36. it looks incredible. i would love to use it on a series of tags i am working on.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the aged look of the transfers as well as the embossed images (but I don't have an embossing machine yet!) so I'd try the transferring first. Cool product that's for sure... thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd love to make some artwork for my kitchen and dining area - I'm working on decorating it very slowly using a lot of primitive details. A patchwork piece of patinas and textured metal squares would be a great addition. I may even be able to use some of the old barn board and beams in the house for the texturing...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would love to run this through my Sizzix and Cuttlebug. Great for card making, collage, home decor, scrapbooking. Imagine this around a votive candle or two ro three or......Yum!

  40. First: Amazing work.Thanks for sharing this to us. Hope you have had a great time at CHA

    I have seen a demo of this glue-foil from CHA..and the way to use it seems to be endless...woowwww.

    My first idea to use it is to decorate different elements of grunger-board.
    I have bought my first acrylic-album today...I wish I have had this glue-foil right now...

    I love the vintage- and shabby-shic style, and use a lot of antique-gold, and silver crakcle-paint...but sometimes I think its try soooo slowly..glue-foil will be much better.

    I think to use white crackle-paint fist, let it dry and crackle well and use glue-foil will give a nice look..maybe Crackle-accents instead of crackle-paint also will give a cool look....

    This is some of my first ideas I will use this glue-foil to..
    I cant-wait to put my hands to this stuff....the problem is it takes nearly two or tree month longer, than you in US, before it arrive to Norwegian store..

    Hope you think about me again, when you pick the winner..I can promised I will show you my work if I win.
    Thanks for a new chance to win.

  45. Thanks for the generosity.

    I've never used these before and I definitely love to lay my hands on these. I love the embossed effect and would definitely love to try on these to make some embellishments. Hope to try out the image transfer techinque too.

    Roni, can you share with us on the techique? Thanks!
