ThermOWeb & Whimsy Stamps Collaboration Day Four


Displaying Collaboration Graphic 3.jpg


  This week Whimsy Stamps and ThermOWeb are partnering for a fabulous week of inspiration and prizes!  All week long designers from both teams will be sharing ways to add foils and more to your projects using products from ThermOWeb and Whimsy Stamps.  Read to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

For my first card today I used Whimsy's Friend Word and Shadow die set from the February release as well as the Card Builder Windows die set


I die cut the large shadow from ThermOWeb's double sided white Foam Adhesive and applied Deco Foil in the color Lime green which has a nice satin sheen. I die cut the word friend from black cardstock and layered it on top of the lime green shadow.
The lime green cardstock panel was die cut using the Card Builder Windows die set


My marbled background was created with Alcohol Inks on YUPO paper. Where the ink is pooling together it stays wet a bit longer and gets a bit sticky. This is what I used to apply the silver Deco Foil Transfer Sheets. After I applied the foil to all sticky areas there were still some areas I wanted to have more foil. So I used a brush and the Liquid Adhesive, let it dry and applied more foil.


Here is a close-up where you can see all the beautiful shine from the silver foil in the background and the shimmer from the lime green satin transfer sheet on the words shadow.


For my second card I used Whimsy's Speckled Heart Stencil together with ThermOWeb's Deco Foil Transfer Gel  and Magenta satin Transfer Sheets on light pink cardstock. 


I used the Envelope Edger dies and the heart dies from the Sketched Elephant die set to create a border. On top I added the Smile large word die as my sentiment.


Here you can see the amazing sheen and brilliance the magenta foil gives the heart speckles. I also added a few gemstones and crystal drops from the Sparkletz - Jelly Fish mix to finish off my card.
