Today, we are creating with our set of Butterfly and Bird Rub on Transfers https://annagriffin.com/product/butterfly-bird-rub-on-transfers/. Using rub on transfers are a quick and beautiful way to turn ordinary into extraordinary! We have designed this and the rest of our rub on transfer sets https://annagriffin.com/?s=rub+on to apply detailed artwork to any number of surfaces.
Let’s take a look at techniques and projects that are sure to spark your imagination!
You can use your favorite tools to apply your rub on transfers. We like to use our Anna Griffin bone folder and the Cricut burnisher to apply pressure to the transfers.
To apply your image, cut out out the image, peel off the clear layer, stick it to your chosen surface and apply pressure to the back of the image to adhere. Double check to see that all parts of your image have attached to your surface. If not, all you have to do is go back over the image with your tool to make sure you get complete transfer.
You can add our rub on transfers to many different surfaces, like flocked paper.
Make your rub on transfers the star of the show and add them in multiples.
You can make both backgrounds and embellishments with this set. Just adhere a few selected butterflies to ivory cardstock and fussy cut.
Another way to elevate your transfers is to apply them and then add texture with an embossing folder of your choice.
It’s fun to see your rub on transfers directly on your cards and “in motion” as embellishments.
Apply and cut the images on layers to make your rub on transfers multi-dimensional.
Because you get 144 images, you can add as many birds and butterflies as you like!
For a beautiful effect, add butterflies to our Vellum Card Sentiment Inserts with Foil https://annagriffin.com/product/vellum-card-sentiment-inserts-foil/. Usually, these are on the inside of your cards, but add them to the outside of a patterned card for a unique look!
Your card making will know no bounds with this set. Have fun mixing and matching until you achieve the desired effect.
We hope that today’s Made Easy tutorial has helped inspire you to think about rub on transfers in a whole new way. We can’t wait to see how you use this set on different materials, projects and more. Think of them as DIY printing for your projects, and enjoy creating with them! This tutorial will be available here on the blog until next week, and then it will move to our Charm School library that you can access anytime with a membership https://annagriffin.com/product/membership-annual/. Enjoy!
