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!

Newton’s Nook Designs & Therm-O-Web Collaboration Week

 

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for fabulous Fall, Halloween and Christmas inspiration! All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have  GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this post to find out how you can WIN.

 

I went NND and TMW crazy and created three projects for you today!  I am showcasing (one of my all-time favorite stamp set from Newton’s Nook)  the Sweater Weather stamp set and its coordinating dies with the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and coordinating dies.  I am also showcasing a LOT of products provided to us by Therm O Web, which you will be able to see if you watch my YouTube video below.  I also would like to take this opportunity to thank Therm O Web for spoiling the NND Design Team with your amazing products.

 

For my first project, I die-cut a masking paper with a circle die and masked my Bristol smooth white card stock.  I inked up my background with some distress oxide inks.  I sprayed my inked background with some water to get the oxidize effect and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.  I used the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and Newton’s Nook Cascading Stars Stencil to create the stars on my background.  I set this piece aside to dry for about 40 minutes and ran it through my laminator with some Deco Foil Ocean Blue Transfer Sheets.  I removed my mask and colored the moon a little bit with my B000 copic marker.

 

 

To create my scene for my trick-or-treaters, I used a house die from my stash and TMW Flock transfer sheets in Purple Punch, Sunshine Yellow, Black Velvet and White Latte to create my spooky house.  I also die-cut the grass using the Land Borders die set.

 

I stamped my image using the Happy Howl-Oween stamp set and colored the images in with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  I die-cut the image using the coordinating die.  Now that I have all of my elements, I started building up my scene.

 

 

I used a white pigment ink and a blending brush to highlight the grass.  By doing so, this gave it a more realistic effect since I have a HUGE moon shining over everything!  I finished my design by stamping the bats.  I also stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink and sprinkled some white embossing powder.  I used my Wagner heating tool to heat set the sentiment.  Here’s a closer look at the card:

 

 

For my second project, I wanted to use the flock transfer sheets and my embossing folder  to create a winter scene for my critters from the Sweater Weather stamp set.  I have a process video for you for the two Christmas cards.  Here’s the first one:

 

 

For the second Christmas card, I used the Oh Christmas Tree Designer Toner Sheets , the White Latte Flock Transfer Sheet and the Gina K Designs for TMW Red Velvet Deco Foil to create a fun shaker card:

 

 

Here’s my YouTube process video:

Newton’s Nook and Therm-O-Web Inspiration Week

NNDTOW_Nov18_Holiday

This week Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web are partnering for a fabulous inspiration week!  All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to add fun foils and more to your cards using Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too!  Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Therm O Web for sending us some amazing products!

For my project below, I am showcasing the Deco Foil Rose Gold Transfer Sheet, the Wilderness Clear Designer Toner Sheet, the Hedgehog Hollow Stamp Set and Hedgehog Hollow die set, with some Merry-Go-Round sequin mix by Kat Scrappiness.  The supplies I used will be listed and linked below.

I started by stamping my hedgehog with some Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored them in with my Copic markers.  I die-cut the images with the coordinating dies.  I cut another piece of Bristol Smooth white card stock and inked up my background with distress oxide inks.

I used my Deco Foil Rose Gold Transfer Sheet and my laminator to foil the Wilderness Clear Designer Toner Sheet.

Here’s what it looks like when it’s completely foiled.  They are amazing!

Since the background is already busy, I wanted to create a more “clean” look so I die-cut my inked background with some dies and adhered the foiled sheet to create my window panel.

I added the Merry-Go-Round sequin mix by Kat Scrappiness.  They kind of look like fall leaves, don’t they?

I used the Land Border dies for my grass and inked it up with distress oxide inks.

Here’s my shaker card:

To finish my design, I added some white lines to the hedgehogs and die-cut the orange bow from the Pines & Holly die set.   Here’s a little close-up:

I just absolutely LOVE the Thermo O Web products I got to play with.   The foil is so pretty and I couldn’t throw it away so I created another card with the negative piece.
