ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle Collaboration

Are you ready for a ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle collaboration?! All the cuteness is coming your way! I made a couple of foiled cards with the most adorable images! 









Heffy Doodle has the cutest images! I couldn't pick just one stamp and stencil to work with, so I made two cards! Add a bit of foiling and these cards really shine! 






Both of these cards were easy to make and came together quickly! Just a bit of stenciling, coloring, and die cutting! 






I sprayed the back of the Lots of Happy Stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it to a piece of white cardstock. I used a Stencil Pal and spread an even layer of Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the stencil and set the piece aside to dry for a couple of hours. You'll know the panel is dry when the back of the cardstock no longer feels cool to the touch. Once it was completely dry I cut a piece of Glimmering Gold Gina K Designs Fancy Foil slightly larger than the stenciled panel and placed it pretty side up onto the panel. I used a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper and ran it through my laminator. I LOVE the results! Such a happy background! Haha! 






I stamped a few images from the Hello Squeakheart Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers than used the coordinating Hello Squeakheart Die Set to cut them out. There are so many adorable sentiments in the Hello Squeakheart Stamp Set, but I wanted to make this birthday card a bit brighter and happier, so I die cut the Yay Heffy Cuts Die from Poppin' Pink Neon Flock Transfer Sheets. I used the same die to cut the word four more times from white cardstock and glued them all together using an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen






I added the images to the front of the foiled panel with iCraft 3D Foam Squares and the sentiment with an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen and that finishes card number one! 






My second card is made much like my first, but I added some extra ink blending to fill in the background. I sprayed the back of the Messy Desk Stencil with Pixie Spray and used Purple Tape to mask off the areas of the stencil I didn't want to add to the card. I used a Stencil Pal to spread Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco over the stencil and allowed it to dry. Once it was dry I trimmed down a piece of Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil and placed it pretty side up over the stenciled portion and ran it through my laminator with a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper as a carrier. 






I thought the background was a little empty, so I added the Confetti Hearts Stencil over the panel and held it in place with Purple Tape. I blended a light teal ink and then rotated the stencil and blended light pink ink so I had two colors of hearts in the background. I stamped and colored some sweet images from the Treat Yo' Self Stamp Set and then die cut them with the coordinating Treat Yo' Self Die Set.






I used the Hello Heffy Cuts Die to cut a piece of Sunshine Yellow Deco Foil Flock and stacked it on top of four white cardstock die cuts. I added everything to my stenciled background with iCraft 3D Foam Squares and an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen






I hope you love these bright and happy cards as much as I do! I loved mixing up ThermOWeb and Heffy Doodle products for this collaboration! See you soon! 

Miss Ink Stamps | Blossoming Brushes Sneak Peek

There's a new release from Miss Ink Stamps hitting the store tomorrow and I am sneaking my favorite stamp set from the release - Blossoming Brushes! 









I stamped the large brush, paint drips, and some flowers and leaves from the Blossoming Brushes Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers and cut them out with scissors. 






I swiped Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks onto a slimline card front to mimic a swipe of paint and added flicks of gold watercolor for texture. I added my Blossoming Brushes stamped and colored images on top. 






I added my panel onto a teal slimline card base and placed a bunch of teal colored pearls around the card. Thanks for joining me! The new release from Miss Ink Stamps hits the shop tomorrow! Happy shopping!

Trinity Stamps | Sending Sunshine Striped Card

There's nothing better than creating your own background! I used the Slimline Stitched Stripes Die Set from Trinity Stamps for this easy background! 









I chose coral, yellow, blue, and holographic cardstock from my stash and die cut them with the Slimline Stitched Stripes Die Set. I adhered them diagonally onto a card base with liquid adhesive. 






I stamped the image from the Sending Sunshine Stamp Set and colored it with Copic Markers and cut it out with the coordinating Sending Sunshine Die Set. I popped the image up onto my striped background with foam tape. 






I finished off the card with a scattering of Bubble Bath Bauble Embellishments. Thanks for joining me!

Simon Hurley create. | Honeycomb Background with Stamping Foam

I love how easy it is to create custom backgrounds with Simon Hurley create. Stamping Foam! This honeycomb pattern is from a silicone pot holder I found from my kitchen! 









I heated my Stamping Foam with my heat gun for about 15 seconds and then pressed it into a silicone hot pad with a honeycomb pattern. I LOVED the pattern! I inked up the design with Guppy, Slippery When Wet, and Over the Moon Dye Inks and spritzed it with water and stamped the image onto a piece of Stark White Cardstock






I stamped some individual flowers and leaves from the Fresh Cut Flowers Slimline Peel-Apart Background Stamp as well as the little bee from the Flower Picking Friends Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers. I layered up my stamped background panel and added black spatters and adhered my florals with foam tape. 






I stamped a sentiment from the Lovely Lantanas Stamp Set directly on the background to finish off the card. Thanks so much for joining me!

I am a HUGE fan of Christmas so I take every opportunity I get to take advantage of Christmas in July! I used the Heffy Doodle Santa's Village to make a cute little scene! 






I transferred a piece of Ruby Red Deco Foil Flock to a piece of cardstock using an iCraft 6x6 Easy Cut Adhesive Sheet and my die cutting machine. Then I sprayed the back of the Heffy Doodle Circles of Life Stencil with Pixie Spray and temporarily adhered it to the flock background. I used my Stencil Pal to spread an even layer of Gold Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil and set the panel aside to dry. 






I stamped out the buildings, trees, presents, and Santa and Mrs. Claus from the Santa's Village Stamp Set and colored them with Copic Markers then die cut them with the coordinating Santa's Village Die Set






I cut down my stenciled panel so that I could mat it onto a standard A2 card base and added my images to my card with iCraft 3D Foam Squares and an iCraft Ultra Bond Liquid Adhesive Pen

LDRS Creative | Folk Art A2 Layering Stencil Set

I love how LDRS Creative has products that work together perfectly! I'm sharing how easy it is to use the Folk Art A2 Cover Plate Die with the Folk Art A2 Layering Stencil Set together on a card! 









This super fun folk art pattern comes in two sizes - A2 and slim line - and they're both amazing! I started my card with the Folk Art A2 Layering Stencil Set and taped a piece of cardstock into my stamping platform so that I could easily line up the stencils. I used LDRS Creative Blending Brushes and inked up the three Folk Art A2 Layering Stencil Set with Soft Kisses, Tangerine Dream, and Lantern Yellow Hybrid Inks






You could use the Folk Art A2 Layering Stencils Set on their own, but the Folk Art A2 Cover Plate Die layers over the top PERFECTLY! I die cut the Folk Art A2 Cover Plate Die from white cardstock, but I wanted to bring a bit of something special to it. I placed the Brocade Stencil over the die-cut and blended on Alloy Hybrid Ink for an extra design and glued the Folk Art A2 Cover Plate Die-Cut onto the Folk Art A2 Layering Stencils piece. 






I wanted a simple sentiment that wouldn't take away from the background, so I used Raven Hybrid Ink and stamped the "hello" from the Snapdragon Stamp Set and die cut it with the coordinating Snapdragon Die Set. I added a sentiment strip from the Snapdragon Stamp Set and a few gems to finish off the card! See you soon!

Pink & Main | Just Ducky Sneak Peak

Everyone ready for sneak peek of the new Pink & Main release?! I used a new cover die and a sentiment die that has quickly made it to the top of my favorites list! 






I decided to pair some new release items with the Stamp & Die of the Month for July! I die cut the new Dotted Cover Dies from white card stock. There are two dies - one that cuts the outer scallop and one that cuts the inner dots. When you stack them together you get this gorgeous dotty background! 






I stamped the duck from the Just Ducky Stamp of the Month and colored it with Copics and cut it with the coordinating dies. That cute little coordinating sentiment is stamped from the same set and cut from the coordinating die set, too! I love the rounded edges! I cut the new Big Hello Die from glossy black cardstock and popped it up with foam tape near the bottom of the card. 






I finished off the card with some mint pearls from the new Pastel Pearls Set. Thanks for joining me for this sneak peek from the July release
