Thermoweb – Time to Fly Toner Sheets

Hello again! Cheers to a new week and a fresh start! Today I’ve got a couple of fun cards to share with you featuring the newest limited edition release of toner sheets from Thermoweb called Time To Fly! They are super adorable butterflies and dragonflies! I couldn’t choose so I made a card with each of them for you!

I used a combination of grass green and passionate pink deco foils on both cards. I paired these awesome products with stamps, dies and stencils from Pink & Main, Trinity Stamps and Newton’s Nook.

For this first card, I used the Pink & Main Smile die cut for the sentiment and paired it with a cute snail from Trinity Stamps Mouse House. I love that stamp set and was super happy to add this guy to my card. I also stenciled some cute clouds from the Newton’s Nook Cloudy Sky stencil for the background.

That foiling is SO MUCH FUN in the light! The colors are so awesome, it’s almost mesmerizing! Let’s check out the second card too!

For this card, I inked up the Trinity Stamps Catching Some Rays stencil in the background and added their Scripty Birthday dies for a sentiment and topped things off with adorable bugs from the Bunny Burrow set.

I love playing with this card in the light too! All that fun, happy color is sure to make the recipient smile for both of these cards!

Thermoweb – Flip Flops with Glitz Gel and Deco Flock

Hey friends! It’s a busy day on here so I appreciate you bearing with me. I’m over on the Thermoweb blog today sharing a pair of cards I made featuring glitz gel and deco flock backgrounds. I paired these awesome products with Newton’s Nook stamps, dies and stencils for some really fun results!

These cards started with the pink and green one but as soon as I die cut the scalloped circle from the center, I knew I couldn’t just throw it out so I started designing a second card to compliment it.

I have a full tutorial available over on the Thermoweb blog today if you’d like to take a peek at how I created this pair of super fun, summer-loving cards!

Any time there’s a chance for a make-one, make-two instead, I’m going to take it and you should too! Your future self with thank you. First, it’s extra crafting time which is always good for us! And second, you immediately have two cards for the mess of one. Hahaha!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Miss Ink Stamps – How You Bean?

Welcome friends! Today I have some Miss Ink Stamps caffeinated inspiration to share with you. I’ve combined a couple of stamp sets with one of the recently released stencils for my super fun background!

When I got my new stencils from Miss Ink, I just cut up a bunch of cardstock to card front size or a little bigger and started playing. The moment I created this background I had a card layout in my head and it actually worked out exactly how I was hoping. I love it when that happens.

I used deco foil metallix gel in aged copper on kraft cardstock with the latte love stencil for the background. Once it was dry I inked the edges with tea dye distress ink for a little dimension and interest. Then I stamped images from Java Joe’s and Brewtiful, colored them with my copics and used the scan-n-cut to cut them all out. I used liquid glue to adhere the flowers and mug to the stenciled panel and then popped Joe up with foam squares.

I couldn’t decide on a sentiment because between the two stamp sets there are SO MANY awesome options, so I took them downstairs and had my family vote on their top two favorite. Lucky for me they both happened to choose “How you bean?” so I took it as a sign and used that one.

I’ll be linking this fun card up to the Coffee Lovers Spring|Summer Hop. There’s still time to play along! I hope you’ll join in on the fun!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Therm-O-Web | Sassy & Craft Collaboration

Hey friends! Over on the Thermoweb blog this week we’re having a fun collaboration with Sassy & Crafty. Today I’m sharing how I made these two really wild and fun cards!

I used deco foil on the hippie card with two of Sassy & Crafty stamp sets – Hippie Patches and Flower Child, along with a Sassy & Crafty stencil called Spiral Shift. Here’s a closer look at it.

For the super cute and fun cow card, I used the Electro-pop Neon Flock with a Sassy & Crafty stencil, along with their Have a Cow stamp set. Isn’t it just so fun!?!

That fuzzy flock is so cool in person and fun to feel too! I really love how this one turned out!

Miss Ink Stamps – Some Bunny Special

Welcome! Welcome! Today I have a couple of really sweet Easter cards featuring Miss Ink Stamps Springtime Bunnies stamps and Thermoweb Basket of Fun foiled toner sheets for backgrounds.

These toner sheet packs from Thermoweb come on white cardstock and kraft. I thought it would be fun to do a card with each one using the Easter egg pattern and the Miss Ink Stamps Springtime Bunnies images. So I heated up my laminator and foiled them with lilac foil. I stamped my images and colored them with copics. Then I ran that sheet through the scan-n-cut and switched gears to decide on my final layouts.

For this card, I adhered my foiled panel to a white card base, opened the card up and ran it through my die cutter with a My Favorite Things arched window. I inked up the edges of the window with light purple ink and also inked up the inside of my card with a little shadow of light green ink. Then I arranged my images so they showed through the window, gluing them down with liquid glue, saving one chick for the front of the window. I also stamped a sentiment in the same purple ink and trimmed it into a strip, adhering it down with liquid glue.

Here’s a look at the inside of the card. Plenty of room to write a message that won’t show through the window but also something sweet and cute to see on the inside too!

Now let’s take a look at the kraft base card that I made as well.

For this one, I adhered the Easter egg panel to a card base with liquid glue. Then I trimmed a white strip of cardstock about an inch wide and inked the top with light purple ink and popped it up with foam tape. I used my MISTI to stamp a sentiment on the bottom and arrange my images, adhering them with a combination of liquid glue and foam squares.

For finishing touches on both of these cards, I just added glossy accents around the various images. Thinks like bunny noses and eyes, chick beaks and feet and stripes and dots of the various Easter eggs.

Newton’s Nook – Bunny Tails Duo

Hello again! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today sharing a fun set of cards I made using the fun bunny tails stencil. Isn’t it just the cutest with those fluffy tails sticking out everywhere!?! I love them! For release week I made rainbow tails so today I’m sharing fuzzy ones and foiled, shiny ones too!

I originally wanted to see what the bunnies looked like inked up with white pigment ink on kraft cardstock and had planned to give them fuzzy white tails but changed my mind after I inked up the second panel with those cute light brown bunnies. These cards were super fun and really quick to come together.

For both cards I started by inking the stencils up and then used Thermoweb transfer gel on the tail portion and set them aside to dry before running the panels through my laminator with pink melon deco foil and white latte deco foil flock. Let’s take a closer look at the foiled one first.

After foiling those cute bunny tails, I die cut the panel with a scalloped rectangle from frames & flags. Then I die cut a banner from the same set, flipped the die and cut it again to create a double-ended banner. I stamped the Hello Spring stamp and colored it with my copics.

I cut a piece of pink cardstock to match the pinks in the foil and markers I chose to color my image. Then I inked the edge with picked raspberry distress oxide, flicked it with water, pearl watercolor and black soot distress ink so it’s got some texture and interest. I adhered this panel to a card base then popped up the stenciled panel and banner with foam tape.

For finishing touches on this card, I added some pink glitter glue from my stash to the bunny’s tail, pink letters and tulip. Then I added unicorn Stickles to the flower center and glossy accents to the bunny’s nose. It’s such a bright, happy card! I’m really wishing for lots of sunshine after making it.

Now for the panel with the fuzzy tails! I stamped images from Hoppy Greetings and colored them with my copic markers. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also die cut part of a rounded rectangle from frames & flags and then used the land borders to cut the top into some grass. I inked it up with twisted citron and mowed lawn distress oxide inks and spritzed it with water.

I added foam tape to my images and grass and added them to the stenciled panel. Then I added foam tape to that and popped it onto a teal card base I had created. Next, I moved on to some simple finishing touches. On this card I just added glossy accents to the flower centers, bunny’s nose and toe beans and called it finished.

These cards are so fun and perfect for spring! My daughter always gets really excited for Easter so I think I create more decorations, cards and things for it because we’re just in the mood and it all makes us happy. I’ve also always had a thing for bunnies. They are too cute and these bunnies are no exception!

Did you have a favorite between today’s cards?

Therm O Web – Hello Spring

Hello everyone! I’m really excited to announce that I’ve joined the Therm O Web team! Today I have a sweet card for you featuring the bunny print from the newly released Basket of Fun toner sheets pack.

Here is a list of all the products I used on today’s card:
Basket of Fun Toner Sheets
Ocean Blue Deco Foil 
Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide
Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide
Scattered Straw Distress Oxide
Paperie Ink Hello Hummingbirds stamps
Therm O Web tape runner XL
iCraft 3D foam squares
Glossy Accents
Sakura white gel pen
Sakura black glaze pen
Wink of Stella clear glitter brush pen 

To start things off I decided that I wanted to use the bunny toner sheet from Basket of Fun and Ocean Blue deco foil. I pulled out my supplies, trimmed my deco foil and placed the foil and toner sheet in my parchment paper transfer sheet. Then I turned on my laminator and while it was heating up, I stamped my images and colored them with my copic markers. I’m not a fussy cutter so I used my scan-n-cut to cut the images out and set them all aside. Once my laminator was good and hot, I ran the sandwich through and revealed the beautifully foiled blue bunnies! Super cute!

I didn’t want a white background with my bunnies though so this is when I chose distress oxide colors to blend over the panel. I went with cracked pistachio, squeezed lemonade and scattered straw. After blending, I used a cloth to wipe off excess ink from the foiled areas and spritzed my panel with water. Then I decided for a little added interest to flick some watered down black acrylic paint on the panel too.

Now for the fun part! I used my tape runner to adhere the foiled panel to a white card base. Then I added foam squares to the back of all my images and put them in place where I wanted.

I really enjoy adding some little bits of finishing touches to my cards so I started these with white gel pen accents on all the images and then went in with a black glaze pen for the eyes. I love the added shine and interest this gives the critters.

Then the last two things I did was add glossy accents to the bunny’s nose and hummingbird’s beaks and feet. For a teeny bit of shimmer I added Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to the hummingbird wings too.

I hope you found some fun inspiration to create something wonderful. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Miss Ink Stamps – Happy Spring + Sneak Peek

Hello everyone! I have a gorgeous Miss Ink Stamps card to share with you today and it has a sneak peek in it too! We’re having a new mini release of stencils tomorrow and I’m using one on my card today called Enchanted. The name is totally what directed the feel of my card and I just love it.

I sprayed my stencil with Pixie Spray and adhered it to a white panel. Then I used my Lawn Fawn dye inks in kiddie pool, butter and ballet slippers and a blending buddy brush to ink up the stencil. I wiped my stencil off and added iridescent Glitter Glitz Gel over the top. I set that aside to dry while I cleaned up and stamped my images from Springtime Banners. I colored those with my copic markers and used the Scan-n-cut to cut them all out. Then, I stamped a sentiment from Springtime Bunnies in the banner.

Once the glitz gel was dry, I ran the panel through my die cutter with the largest Trinity Stamps embossed edge rectangle die. I used liquid glue to adhere the panel to a white card base and started adding images. These were done with a combination of foam squares and liquid glue for some dimension.

I kept finishing touches very light because I wanted to focus to be on that amazing glittery background and cool stencil design – just some simple glossy accents to butterfly bodies, bird eggs and beak, dots on the ladybugs, things like that.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Miss Ink Stamps – We’re All Mad Here

Hi again! I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole again…those wonderful Miss Ink Stamps Alice in Wonderland products are ahhhhh-mazing! This time for some reason, when I looked at the rabbit hole stencil looked a bit like the Cheshire Cat’s stripes so I decided to play a little bit.

I took some Glitz Glitter Gel in bubblegum and the rabbit hole stencil from Miss Ink Stamps on purple cardstock! It’s totally brilliant and I love it! I left it overnight to dry and when I came back the next day I did think the purple cardstock was a little flat so I inked up the edges with distress oxide ink in wilted violet and spritzed it with my distress sprayer.

I arranged my stamps how I wanted them and found a Trinity Stamps modern embossed rectangle the correct size and die cut a piece of vellum. Then I stamped and heat embossed my sentiments from Miss Ink Stamps Madness and that awesome image of Chesh’s face from Wonderland Wisdom. I hid some liquid glue behind the embossing and placed it on the stenciled panel, topping it with some acrylic blocks to help it dry flat.

I left it be for a while and came back to finish things up. I trimmed 1/8 inch off each side of the stenciled panel and added foam tape to the back. Then I adhered it to a white card base and my card is finished.

Isn’t it splendid?!? I just love how the bright, vibrant colors turned out! It’s so fun and the Alice sentiments just make me happy.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!

Miss Ink Stamps – How You Bean?

Hi everyone! I shared this card on social media earlier in the week but hadn’t had a chance to write up a post about it. Someone had asked so I wanted to pop in with a quick explanation how I created this fun mini slimline card. It features stamps and stencils from Miss Ink Stamps and dies from Trinity Stamps.

I started by die cutting the largest panel from Trinity Stamps Clean and Simple Mini Slimline Panels die set from a melon cardstock and a second from kraft. Then I used champagne metallix gel from Thermoweb over the Circular Harlequin stencil from Miss Ink Stamps and set it aside to dry. I stamped and colored images from Miss Ink Stamps Brewtiful and colored them with my copic markers. Then I fussy cut them all out.

Once the metallix gel was dry I used one of the Trinity Stamps Lift the Flap dies to create a flip up window. Using that panel as a guide, I stamped sentiments on the kraft panel that would show when the flap was opened and moved on to assembly.

I adhered the melon panel to the kraft one with tear tape and then used liquid glue to attach all of my images. The trick here is to not attach something to the flap and the card front. You have to choose one. Haha. I stamped one more sentiment and trimmed it into a small strip and attached it as well. Last, I used liquid glue to adhere the panels to a white card base that measures 3×6 inches and trimmed off images that hung over the edge.

I hope this helps and inspires you to create something wonderful.

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
