NEW Unity Stamps Toner Card Fronts in 5 Designs w/ Therm O Web + IG Hop!!

Pin It
Hello Crafty Friends!! 

I'm here today with Therm O Web for the AWESOME IG Hop showcasing the 
NEW Unity Stamps Toner Card Fronts!!
  SWOON!! There are 5 NEW Designs!! Rosy Days, Majestic Moths, Tranquil Leaves, Wild Garden & Paisley Dreams!!
They are so VERSITILE!! 
Today I've created SEVERAL Cards showing them being used in different ways!! 
For my First 2 Cards I'm Showing how you can use the NEW Unity Stamps Toner Card Fronts ~ Tranquil Leaves along with some Stamped Images to create a BEAUTIFUL Design!! I just switched up the Colors of the Deco Foil, WoW Embossing Ink and the Copic Markers!! Same Design, but it looks completely different just by using the different Colors!! 
I Started by Coloring the NEW Tranquil Leaves Toner Card Front with Copic Markers!! 
Leaves: G20, YG61, YG63 & YG67   
Background: BG000 & BG11
After coloring the Card Front I Cut it in half!! Then I used the Deco Foil in Black to Foil the Toner Card Front!! 
For the second half of the Toner Card Front I Foiled with Emerald Watercolor Deco Foil!! 
SWOON!! I LOVE how STUNNING this is in real life!! 
Then I added the Stamped and Embossed Images on Die Cut Circles that I Stamped and Embossed the Love You Sentiments onto!! I added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones for an extra touch of Sparkle!! 

For my Third, Fourth & Fifth Cards I'm using the NEW Unity Stamps Toner Card Fronts ~ Majestic Moths along with a Stamped and Embossed Sentiment from the NEW Unity Stamps Sentiment Kit!! 

I Started by Coloring the NEW Majestic Moths Toner Card Front with Copic Markers!! 
Moths: W0, W2 & W5   Y11, YR23   YR00, YR68 
Then I Foiled it with Black Deco Foil!! SWOON!! It's STUNNING in real Life!! The Black Deco Foil adds a Nice Shine to the Moth Images and really makes them POP off the Panel!! I added some Distress Paint Splatters in Black Soot & Picket Fence!! Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones for an extra touch of Sparkle!!
For the Fourth Card I took the Black Deco Foil Negative Sheet left over from making the Card above and added it to a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! 
Then I Cut a Piece of Summer Rainbow Deco Foil and Foiled over the Toner Sheet!! 
SWOON!! I added some Distress Paint Splatters in Picket Fence!! Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones for an extra touch of Sparkle!!
For the Fifth Card I took the Summer Rainbow Deco Foil Negative Sheet from creating the Card above and add it to a piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then I Foiled it again with Black Deco Foil!! 
SWOON!! I added some Distress Paint Splatters in Picket Fence & Black Soot!! Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and added some Trinity Stamps Fairy Rocks Rhinestones for an extra touch of Sparkle!!
You could keep creating Cards like this just by using the Negative Foil Sheet for as long as you wanted!! NO WASTE and you only used ONE of Majestic Moth Toner Card Fronts!! Such a FUN technique!! Probably one of my FAVORITES!! 
For my next Four Cards I'm using the NEW Unity Stamps Toner Card Fronts ~ Rosy Days and Wild Garden and they're being shared in depth over on the Therm O Web Blog!! SWOON!! I LOVE the NEW Maker Forte Deco Foils that I've used on both of the Wild Garden Designs!! So I hope you'll stop by the Blog and leave me some LOVE!!

InterNational Scrapbooking Day w/ Therm O Web & Page Maps!!

Pin It
HELLO CRAFTY FRIENDS!! 


I'm here with Therm O Web, as today is International Scrapbooking Day!! YIPPEE!! We want to CELEBRATE by offering a Chance to WIN a $30 Gift Card to the Therm O Web Store + some Goodies from Photoplay Paper!! 

All you have to do is create either a Layout or a Card that's INSPIRED by one of the Page Maps Sketches above and share with us Via Social Media, making sure to TAG #thermoweb so they can find it!!  
I've created a Duo of Cards for today using the 1st Sketch as my INSPIRATION along with some NEW Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts and some Newton's Nook Designs Products as we just finished up a FULL Week of Collaborations w/ even more chances to WIN that EXPIRES on SUNDAY!! So if you haven't already make sure you ENTER HERE and HERE for a chance to WIN!!
I Started with the NEW Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts ~ Time to Fly!! Then I Cut a piece of Deco Foil in Rainbow Shattered Glass large enough to cover the Toner Card Front and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! 
SWOON!! How BEAUTIFUL is this!! Then SAVE the Negative Foil as we'll use this to make our Second Card!! 
I took the Negative Foil Piece and Placed it over a Piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheets and ran it through my Laminating Machine!! Then removed the Film and SWOON!! Another Piece for my Second Card Panel!! NO WASTE!! 
Then I added some Black Soot and Picket Fence Distress Paint Splatters for some dimension!! 
I Started by Cutting a Strip of Vellum for BOTH Cards!! Then I Die Cut the NND Frames Squared Die Set Label from both Black and White Cardstock!! 
Next I Die Cut the Smaller Label from the NND Slimline Frames & Windows Die Set again from both White and Black Cardstock!! 
Then I also Die Cut the Same Small Label twice from a Piece of Deco Foil Toner Sheet that I Foiled with the Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil!! I LOVE how it POPS on top of the Large Label Die Cut!! I tried to line up the Dies so that the Labels would be Die Cut from the same Color area for a seamless Design!! 
Next I Die Cut 4 of the NND Butterfly Images using the NND Slimline Frames & Potholes Die Set!! Again using the same Deco Foil Toner Sheet that I foiled with the Rainbow Shattered Glass Deco Foil!! I tried to align it again with area of the Card Panel so the Foil colors would be Seamless!! 
Just make me HAPPY!! 
I adhered the Vellum Strips to the Deco Foiled Toner Card Front Panels using Gina K Designs Foam Tape!! Then I adhered the Small Label on top using some Ultra Bond Adhesive!! I Adhered the Large Label using another piece of Gina K. Designs Foam Tape and then adhered the Small Deco Foiled Toner Sheet Label on top of the Large Label using more Ultra Bond Adhesive!! 
I Stamped the Small Stitched Circles Die Cut from the NND Circle Frames Die Set using the "You are so Kind" Sentiment from NND Little Lilies Stamp Set!! I Embossed with WoW Embossing Powder in Clear Gloss & Bright White!! Then I adhered some Trinity Stamps Midnight Ball Baubles!! The iridescent Color pairs so well with the Rainbow Deco Foil when moved in the Light!! 

So there you have it a DUO of Cards using by the 1st Sketch!! I hope I've INSPIRED you and that you'll join in on the FUN for SEVERAL chances to WIN!! Just follow the LINKS I've provided!!
