Easy Christmas Cards with Therm-O-Web

I am super excited to share today’s post because I am guest-designing for Therm-O-Web!   I was approached by the beautiful Julia Sandvoss and she had sent me some awesome Therm-O-Web (“TOW”) products to try.  Let me just say…. WOW!  I am completely blown away by these products!  Stay tuned in the next few weeks as I will have some process videos of some of the products that I got to play with, including my new favorite, the Deco Foil Metallix Gel.

 

Before I proceed with my projects, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Julia Sandvoss and Therm-O-Web for sending me all the wonderful products that I got to play with today , and will be using in the next few weeks!  You guys are amazing and I love your products!

 

For my projects, I am showcasing the Deco Foil Metallix Gel in White Pearl, Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheet in Blue Sky, the Brutus Monroe for TOW Designer Toner Sheets in Peppermint, Brutus Monroe for TOW Foil transfer Sheet in Red Static, Pixie Spray and the Deco Foil Stencil Pal.  The stamps I am showcasing are Newton’s Nook Designs Cup of Cocoa stamp set and coordinating dies with the Santa Paws Newton stamp set and coordinating dies.

 

Here’s a step-by-step instruction on how I made my first card:

 

  • Stamp the images on Neenah solar white card stock and color them in with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Die-cut the images using the coordinating dies and Die cut an A2 size piece of some blue card stock.

 

 

  • Use some Pixie Spray to spray the back of the stencil so that it doesn’t shift while you’re working on your project.  This pixie spray is a must-have for any stamper!).  I don’t think I can live without this anymore.  It makes stenciling so much easier.

 

 

  • Use a palette knife to apply some Deco Foil Metallix Gel on the Stencil Pal.

 

 

  • By doing so, the gel will be applied to your project smoothly; and you will be able to put the excess gel back in the pot.
  • Apply the gel on your project.

 

  • This is what it looks like when you take the stencil off.  The Stencil Pal applied an even coating on my project!  This is also the first time I used the Deco Foil Metallix Gel in White Pearl.  I am so impress with the creamy and soft consistency of the gel.  I will be buying more for sure!

 

 

 

  • Die-cut the rest of the elements needed to assemble the card.  Stamp the sentiment on the banner strip using some Lawn Fawn Lobster ink.

 

Here’s my first card:

 

 

I wish you can see this card in person.  The Deco Foil Metallix Gel in White Pearl is so shiny and I really love the added texture and dimension it gave my card.  This card is also going to be shared as my entry to the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

For my second card, I am showcasing the amazing Deco Foil Transfer Sheet in Red Static and the Brutus Monroe Designer Toner Sheet in Peppermint.

 

  • Stamp the images on some Neenah solar white card stock.  Color the images in with Alcohol markers and die-cut using the coordinating dies.
  • Cut an A2 size piece of the designer toner sheet.  I also cut the Deco Foil Transfer Sheet in Red Static, just slightly bigger than the toner sheet.

 

 

 

  • Insert the pieces together inside your transfer sheet and run it through your laminator.
  • Here’s what it looks like when you remove the foil.  I just LOVE seeing this process:

 

 

  • Die-cut the rest of the elements needed for the card.  I used the new Flock Transfer Sheet in Blue Sky.  These new flock transfer sheets are a must-have for any paper crafter.  You can easily die-cut it, stamp on it, use adhesive sheets to transfer the flock to your card stock, or you can emboss it.  Wow!  they are truly amazing!

 

 

  • Assemble the card.
  • Finish the design by stamping the sentiment directly onto the flock transfer sheet.

 

Here’s my second card:

 

I absolutely LOVE the added texture of the Deco Foil Flock Transfer sheet!  Here’s a closer look:

 

 

As mentioned earlier, please stay tuned for some process videos of Therm-O-Web projects that I will be sharing in the next few weeks on my YoUTube channel and on this blog.  I hope you like my projects today.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.   I hope you have a wonderful day and happy crafting!

Stretch Your Stamp Sets & Create a Holiday Card with the Hedgehog Hollow

Hello, The Hedgehog Hollow fans!  I am back today with my second project as a guest-designer this month.  I wanted to show you guys that you can stretch your stamp sets for any occasion, even if they are not meant for the holidays.   I have always wanted to to try my pearl watercolors on black card stock so this is what I am doing today.  I really LOVE how this card turned out!

For my project today, I am showcasing the Feather Background and Peacock stamp set, that is part of the September HH box and some pearl watercolors.  Here’s how I made my card:

1. I prepped my black card stock by using my powder bag.  This will help get rid of static and make sure that the embossing powder wouldn’t be all over the card.

2. Using my MISTI, I put my black card stock inside and held it with the magnets.  I carefully positioned the stamps where I wanted them to be.  I closed the lid of my MISTI, then opened it back so I can use my Versamark ink to stamp the image.  I flipped the card stock and stamped the images on the other side.

 

3. I sprinkled clear embossing powder on the card.

 

4.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat-set the embossing powder.

 

5.  I “carefully” colored the stamped images using my pearl watercolor in Bronze.  I made sure that I didn’t use a lot of water since this black card stock is not meant for water coloring.

 

6. Once it dries, apply a second coat to make the colors stand out.  Here’s what it looks like after the second coat dried.  Isn’t it beautiful?

 

7.  I used a micro-fiber cloth to get rid of the powder that was on the black card stock.

 

8.  I used my pearl watercolor again in “gold” to put some splatters of color on my background. I also die-cut the “Season’s Greetings” sentiment with some gold card stock and adhered it onto my card.  Here’s what it looks like:

 

To finish my design and add more texture, I used some bronze gems and adhered it onto the card.  Here’s a closer look:

I hope have given you some inspiration to stretch your stamps.  I’d love to see your projects using the September stamp sets; please tag me on instagram @rprmlr77.  Thank you for stopping by and happy stamping!

Newton’s Nook Designs Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

This is my second blog post for today.  I am up on the Newton’s Nook Designs blog with this Christmas card, showcasing the Festive Flamingos stamp set, Land Border Dies and the Pines and Holly Die Set.   I wanted to give you a little preview of what’s to come this month on Newton’s Nook.  You will absolutely love the new stamp sets coming out next week.  Please stay tuned.

 

I started out by stamping my images on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored the images in with my Comic markers.  I fuzzy-cut the images with my precision cut scissors. I also die-cut the other elements that I needed for the card.    This is a fairly simple card but I love how it turned out.  Here it is:

I hope you like the card.  Have a wonderful day!

 

 

Woodland-themed Christmas Card

It’s Maria Russell here today and I am back today to share with you a Christmas card that I have made showcasing the Christmas tree die by Kat Scrappiness. Unfortunately I wouldn’t have a process video this time, as I am currently home in Orlando, celebrating Thanksgiving weekend with my family.

I started out by die-cutting my card stock using the die, and coloring the pieces with my Tombow colored pencils. Once I was happy with the colors, I used my tombow liquid glue to adhere the pieces together and set it aside to dry.

I proceeded to cut my card base, and used the Kat Scrappiness Stitched rectangle die to die-cut my patterned paper. I also used this die to die-cut another white cardstock so I can use my Lawn Fawn stitched border dies to create the snow.

Since I was going to decorate my card with cardinals, I went ahead and used a magnolia die from my stash to add the stitching detail to the front panel of my card.

I finished the design by adding white diamonds sequins from Kat Scrappiness, Enamel dots from Doodlebug Design and adding the peppermint twine.  Here is the card. I have also listed the supplies that I’ve used below. I hope you like it and somehow got inspired today. Have an amazing day!
