Newton’s Nook – Thermoweb Collab | Time to Celebrate

Happy Monday everyone! This week Newton’s Nook and Thermoweb are collaborating together for amazing inspiration using products from both companies! Today I have a very sweet celebration card to share with you.

I started today’s card with my background panel and the Cupcakes layering stencil. I started by inking the layer with the cupcake papers and a few toppers. I used teal for the wrappers and brown for the few frosting bits. Next, I swapped for the cupcake frosting layer and inked it in a gradient from top left to bottom right – red/pink down to yellow. Last, I added my sprinkles and cherries layer and spread red Thermoweb Glitz Glitter Gel through it. Then, I set the panel aside to dry and cleaned up my area and stencil.

Next, I brought out the Newton’s Cupcake set and stamped my images. I colored them with copic markers to resemble the inking on the stenciled panel and used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.

Once they were cut out, I turned on my laminator to heat up. I used the Deco Foil adhesive pen to add polka dots to the cupcake wrapper and cut a piece of red Deco Foil transfer sheet. With the laminator heated up and the pen dry, I layered the foil on top and placed them in a Craft & Carrier sheet and ran it through the laminator. This is such a fun way to customize and detail your images! I love it and the shine of these foiled dots in the light is so cool!

With the stenciled panel dry, I ran it through the die cutter with the largest Frames & Flags die and added my Newton image with foam squares. Next, I chose a sentiment from the Birthday Roundabout stamp set, and heat embossed it on a banner from the Banner Trio die set. I glued the ends down and added it under Newton with foam squares too.

Next, I chose a pattern from the Springtime paper pad, cut it to A2 size and added it to a white card base before popping up the stenciled panel with foam tape on that.

For a little bit of finishing detail, I added glossy accents to the cherry on the cupcake, Newton’s nose and a couple of stripes on the party hat too.

Doesn’t this card just make you want to celebrate? And eat cupcakes? It certainly does for me!

Coffee Loving Cardmakers – Thermoweb Spotlight

Hey friends! Thermoweb is a super sponsor of the Coffee Lovers Spring | Summer Hop and on the blog today they are giving away an extra prize to a lucky commenter! Since they were so generous to offer this prize, I wanted to highlight their fabulous products with a project to share with you.

For my card, I pulled out a gorgeous toner card front and the mystic rainbow Deco Foil transfer sheets. I heated up my laminator and ran it through. It was totally gorgeous but there is a lot of white space on the design I chose, so I took the negative foil that was left over and ran that through with a toner sheet giving me this deep, gorgeous design to work with! Bonus! I still have the foiled toner card front to make another card with later on!

The left is what I started with and the right is the negative on a toner sheet. Isn’t that the coolest! And that left zero waste for my beautiful foil too!

Then to keep my card moving along, I cut the panel down with a Trinity Stamps embossed edge rectangle and then cut the Cafe Cup Cutout from the upper center of that. I decided to add white steam bits instead of the foiled pieces so I used a scrap to cut those pieces and set them aside.

I took an A2 panel and used the window as a guide where to ink up a light teal shadow in the opening. Once that was set I glued down the steam bits with Ultra Bond liquid glue pen and added Thermoweb foam tape to the back of the foiled panel. I removed the release paper and adhered the two together. For my sentiment I used the Trinity Stamps Cut and Foil Coffee die set to cut the word coffee from tuscan gold Deco Foil Flock transfer sheet. I stamped and heat embossed “you make me smile” and cut it out with a stitched banner. The flock coffee sentiment is added with liquid glue and the banner is popped up with foam squares.

I added the panel to a white card base with liquid glue and my card is all finished for today. Here’s a look at it tilted in the light so you can really see how that gorgeous foil stands out. It’s so striking!

Miss Ink Stamps – Coffee Stencil Trio

Hey friends! I’m on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today highlighting the super fun coffee themed gift with purchase stencil that is available! I have two cards and a bonus gift tag to share.

I started today by taking a 6×6 piece of white cardstock and inked it up very messy and random with distress oxide inks in tea dye, gathered twigs and ground espresso. Once I liked the look of the panel and spritzed it with water and then flicked black acrylic paint on the whole thing. After it was dry I spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through the coffee stencil. I removed the stencil, cleaned up and set the panel aside to dry.

Once the panel was dry, I heated up my laminator and ran the whole panel through with copper deco foil in a craft & carrier sheet. Then I trimmed the text blocks and rainbow apart using my paper trimmer. I adhered the text blocks to black panels giving them a small border and popped that up with foam tape on white panels.

For this card, I inked up a teal A2 panel with the new Latte Love stencil and white pigment ink before adding the foiled layers to the center.

For the second card, I did the same thing with the foiled panel, adding the white and black mat layers before inking up the teal panel with the Lava Lamp stencil and darker teal ink for a tone-on-tone contrast.

Bonus! This stencil has a third image that is a cup ring/coffee bean rainbow! It’s so fun and different! This time I decided to add it to a tag that I could tie to a box of K-cups to share with a friend.

I cut the large tag from textured teal cardstock and the stitched layer from white. I attached the Perfectly Plaid stencil with Pixie Spray and inked it up with Dusty Concord distress oxide ink. Since I pounced my sponge dobber instead of using a brush I got this cool distressed looking texture. I splattered the panel with watered down Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink to tie in the teal color and adhered the tag layers together.

Using my MISTI I stamped the sentiment from Brewtiful on the lower center and popped the rainbow up with foam squares. To finish it off I threaded some ribbon through the hole and tied it with twine.

Miss Ink Stamps – Wishing You a Magical Day

Hello there! Thanks so much for stopping by. Today I have a little inspiration featuring some magical products from Miss Ink Stamps. I pulled out the Lovely Unicorns because it had been a minute since I colored these beauties up and decided to pair some beautiful stencils together too!

I started by stamping my images out and coloring them with my lightest copic markers. I wanted to keep things soft and sweet for this card. Then I used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out.

Knowing the general design direction I was going, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock down to 2×4.25 inches and stamped my sentiment on the upper right side. I added 1/8″ scrappy tape to the edge and adhere a strip of silver cardstock to it. Then, I set this aside with my images while I worked on the stencil panel.

I have really been itching to try out the new On the Vine stencil to see how it was in person and I can’t even tell you how much I love it. It’s beautiful and is going to be so versatile with any images you try it with! Today I inked up a white piece of cardstock with light blue ink. Then I sprayed the stencil with Pixie Spray and stuck it down before adding another layer of the same color blue ink over the top. The moment I peeled the stencil away I was in love!

But thanks to my friend Lynnea, I just can’t leave these alone without trying to layer a little something over the top. Today for that added magical feel, I used the Sparkles stencil with iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel from Thermoweb for the perfect amount of magic!

Once the glitz gel was dry, I lined everything up to figure out final spacing and decided to trim the sentiment panel down to 1.5 inches and pop it up with foam tape. Then I added foam squares to the images and added them next.

For finishing touches I added unicorn Stickles to the unicorn horn and hooves and also the butterfly wings. Then I took my Wink of Stella glitter brush pen and added a little shimmer to the unicorn mane and tail too. You can’t have too much sparkle on a card like this, ever!

Miss Ink Stamps – Stenciled and Glitzed Cheetah

Hello everyone. I have a bit of Miss Ink Stamps inspiration to share with you featuring one of the new animal portrait stencil sets. These layering stencils are gorgeous and so easy to use! Today I stepped them up a bit from just inking to glitz glitter gel for some sparkle and interest.

In this stencil set you get three piecs – the cheetah shape mask, the shading layer and the spots layer. They are super easy to line up and ink how you want.

Today I started with kraft cardstock and used the mask to ink around the cheetah with peeled paint distress oxide ink, then I inked the edges of the panel with rustic wilderness distress oxide for a color gradient.

Next I added the shading layer stencil and inked it up with carved pumpkin distress oxide ink. I chose this bright color for some contrast on the kraft cardstock. If I were using white, I would probably have stuck to another color in the yellow family instead. Just something to keep in mind when you are choosing colors.

Finally, I added the spots layer and inked the whole thing up with VersaFine black ink before selectively adding black glitz glitter gel to the spots. However, I didn’t mask anything off, I was just careful when adding the glitz and didn’t mind if it went outside of the spots to the face lines or something else.

I let that dry and then went in with the frame layer for the Ins & Outs Marquis stencil to add a gold glitz frame to really bling things up. While that was drying, I stamped a sentiment from Jungle Ruins and cut it out with a rectangle die. I inked the top with a little green ink that coordinated with my card front and popped it up with foam squares.

Once it was all dry, I glued the whole panel to a white card base and my card is completely finished. Sometimes it’s not to just get inky and not color anything. I love these stencils for those moods.

Miss Ink Stamps – Stencil Release Day | Rainbow Hello

Hey there! Today is a fun stencil release day for Miss Ink Stamps. I wanted to share one of a billion ways to use the new wonky scallop stencil. I inked it up horizontally today on a portrait card front in rainbow colors!

The design of this stencil makes masking super quick and easy to get these rainbow lines. I seriously want to make 100 of these cards and give them to everyone! It’s just so happy!

After I inked up my rainbow, I layered the starry night stencil over the top and spread iridescent glitz glitter gel through that. I just love stencil layering like this where it’s subtle but adds so much interest to the design.

Once that was dry I trimmed the panel down to 4×5 1/2 inches and layered it on a piece of gray cardstock that is 4 1/8×5 3/8. Then I added that to a white card base.

For my sentiment, I die cut “hello” using the Ei-ei-o word dies three times from white cardstock and once from white glitter cardstock and used liquid glue to adhere the layers together. I used my grid mat and post-it tape to line them up how I wanted, added liquid glue to the back and placed them on the card front.

Last, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows in white on black cardstock, trimmed it into a strip and popped it up with a foam strip. Then my card is all finished. The glitz background and glittery letters add so much that I didn’t think any “finishing touches” were needed.

I call this a sherbet rainbow and it is my absolute most favorite thing ever! These colors make me so happy. I hope you like them too!

Thermoweb – Deco Foil Adhesive Transfer Sheet Release Day

Holy wow friends! Thermoweb has a release of brand new products today and I can’t express enough how much I love them!!! They are deco foil adhesive transfer sheets and new craft & carrier sheets for foiling and other things.

I’m up on the blog today with this pair of cards using both versions of the new adhesive transfers! Gina K Designs has 3 new sheets that have images and sentiments together, while Unity Stamp Co is releasing 2 new sheets with combo sentiments. They’re all incredible!

For this card I did some glitz gel and foiling with stencils for my background and let the images and banner sentiment shine from the new adhesive transfers in the foreground.

And this card was so fun to ink blend and copic color while leaving the sentiments to shine with their fabulous foiling! I really love the combo of the large brush words with the sans serif simple secondary sentiments on these sheets. So good!!!

Head to the blog for all the details on these cards and then to Instagram for a hop! Remember to comment everywhere for chances to win all the fun things too!

Miss Ink Stamps – Good Day to be Happy

Welcome everyone! It’s been a very busy week and I’m super excited to share all the things I’ve been creating. For today I have a brilliant card using Miss Ink Stamps Bubbles stamps and dies and a few stencils layered together to create an awesome background!

I started by stamping and coloring some images from Bubbles with my copic markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then set them all aside while I got inky. I started by taping my cardstock to the masking layer of the Ins and Outs Marquis stencil. Then I added the Random Dots stencil over the top and inked it with a light teal ink. I removed that and switched it for the Large Random Dots stencil and spread Thermoweb transfer gel blanco through that one. I set the panel aside to dry and cleaned up my mess.

Coming back later on, I heated up my laminator and ran the panel through with pearlescent deco foil transfer sheet and it turned out amazing! After that, I layered the border for the Ins and Outs Marquis over the top and blended a darker teal ink for that. Then I started playing with placement for my images and digging for a sentiment.

I added my images with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares. Then I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from Sunshine and Rainbows, trimmed it into a strip and popped it up with foam squares too.

For finishing touches, I added unicorn Stickles to the bubbles and called it good. There is so much interest in the background that makes those sweet foxes pop, I didn’t think it needed much else.

Newton’s Nook – Just Because Knight Owl

Hey friends! I’m back today with version 2 of my simple sketch design featuring another mini stamp set from Newton’s Nook. This Knight Owl stamp set it adorable but I had a hard time finding ways to use it. Then I reminded myself, that you don’t have to use the sentiments included with the image, duh! So I went digging and found this fun “just because” sentiment in the Heartfelt Blooms stamp set. How fun is that!?!

For today’s card, I stamped and colored the knight owl image with copic markers and used the coordinating die to cut him out. Then I moved on to inking up my background panels. and die cutting the other elements.

Starting with the background, I inked the edges of a dark blue cardstock panel with chipped sapphire distress oxide ink for a little depth before taping down the cascading stars stencil over the top and spreading transfer gel blanco through it. I cleaned up my mess and set the panel aside to dry. Then I too a scrap strip of white cardstock and inked it up with mowed lawn and forest moss distress oxide ink. I spritzed the panel with water and blotted it dry before cutting it with the largest Frames & Flags die and then again with the grass die in the Land Borders set.

Once the star panel was dry, I heated up my laminator and ran it through with Thermoweb gold glitter deco foil by Unity. I absolutely love the tiny shimmer this foil gives off. It’s gorgeous! Then I cut that panel out with the same die from the Frames & Flags set.

Next, I cut a stitched banner and fence from white cardstock. I stamped my sentiment on the banner and started assembling my card. First, I adhered the fence to the grass with liquid glue. Then I added the banner behind the owl using the grass panel as a guide for width. I added foam tape to the star panel, grass/fence panel and owl/banner. I removed the release paper and adhered them together one layer at a time.

For finishing touches, I added white gel pen accents to my image, black glaze pen to his eyes and glossy accents to his beak.

Isn’t this such a fun card and ready to go for any reason you can come up with to send it! I’m so excited to have another happy mail card in my stash to share.
