ThermOWeb | Laura Kelly Rainbow Cupcake Card

There's a new line of products on the ThermOWeb site from an amazing designer - Laura Kelly! There are stamps, Designer Foils, and Toner Sheets! I played with them and made a fun and playful rainbow cupcake card!

The whimsy style that Laura Kelly brings to her products carries through her new stamps and toner sheets and there are 8 STUNNING foils in perfect rainbow colors! 

I wanted to try using Distress Oxide Sprays with the Laura Kelly Toner Sheets. It's a medium I haven't used with toner sheets yet! In my video I show two ways to use them - spraying as intended and adding spatters. I liked the look of the spatters against the white background, but if you prefer more color you can spray to your heart's content! 

I tested using the sprays both before and after foiling and the results were the same either way, but I find it easier to ink and then foil. That way I can add color while my laminator is heating up. It makes me feel like I've saved some time. I added color by flicking on the Distress Oxide Sprays and heat set the ink with my heat tool. I used two patterns of Laura Kelly Toner Sheets - Spotty Dots and Dauntless Diamonds. I also used two colors of Laura Kelly Designer Foils - Sunshine Yellow and Berry Purple. All the colors are gorgeous, but I was drawn to these! 

I placed the foils onto the toner sheets pretty side up and ran them through my laminator with a piece of Deco Foil Parchment Paper. They are GORGEOUS! I used a stitched rectangle and stitched circle die to cut down the toner sheets and saved the extra pieces for future cards. I stamped the ADORABLE cupcake from the Kindness on Purpose Stamp Set with rainbow colors and trimmed it out with scissors. I love the childlike and whimsy style of the images and sentiments! 

As I was assembling the card I realized I needed a punch of something ... neon of course! I adhered a piece of a Poppin' Pink Neon Enamel Transfer Sheet to a Deco Foil Foam Adhesive Sheet and cut it out with a slightly larger stitched circle. I layered the circles together using new iCraft White 3D Foam Tape. I centered everything on my Spotty Dots foiled toner sheet and added the cupcake and sentiment strip with iCraft 3D White Foam Squares

There is SO much to love about the new Laura Kelly release! Hop on over to the ThermOWeb store to find all kinds of new goodies!
