ThermOWeb & Whimsy Stamps Collaboration Day Five

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!

Hi, friends!  It's Andrea with you for the last day of this fun collaboration.  Do you have a favorite project or product from this week?!  I hope you've enjoyed this week even half as much as we designers have!

My first project features the A Boy's Dream and Moon Background stamp sets.  I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them with Copics, and trimmed them out.

I created my galaxy background by ink-blending Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, and Black Soot distress inks.  After blending, I flicked on some watered-down white paint and allowed the panel to dry fully.  Next, I placed the Star Galaxy Stencil over the panel and spread on some Deco Foil Transfer Gel.  After the gel was completely dry, I placed pieces of a Silver Deco Foil Transfer Sheet over the stenciling and ran the panel through my laminator.  Ta da!  Gorgeous, shining stars!

I knew I wanted to make a slider card with these fun images, which is where the Kinetic Curved Basics Die Set and No-See Kinetic Straight Basics Die Set came into play.  For a video of these dies in action, visit here.  After assembling my slider, I adhered the background to a white card.  Using the new Friend Word and Shadow Dies, I die-cut "friend" from a Deco Foil Toner Sheet, covered it with a Red Deco Foil Transfer Sheet, and ran the word through my laminator.  I die-cut the shadows from black cardstock and vellum, layered the die-cuts together, and adhered them to my card.  I white heat-embossed a sentiment from A Boy's Dream onto black cardstock, die-cut it with the Quick Strips Die Set, and popped it up onto my card.

My next card features an image from Hugs Bunny.  This set is great all year, but I used it to make a Valentine's Day card.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics.

I just love the Deco Foil Transfer Gel so much that I had to use it again!  This time I used it with the Speckled Heart Stencil and a Wild Cherry Deco Foil Transfer Sheet.  It's difficult to photograph, but the shine is AMAZING!  The Shaker Maker Rectangle Die Set makes creating a shaker card easy-peasy.  I die-cut the largest die from pink cardstock and backed it with clear acetate and two layers of foam tape.  I trimmed my foiled background to the same dimensions as my frame, added a bunch of sequins to the frame, and covered them with my background.

I adhered my shaker to a white cardbase and popped up my colored image with foam tape.  With Versafine Onyx Black ink, I stamped a sentiment from Hugs Bunny onto white cardstock.  I also stamped a trio of hearts from the set, which I "colored" with the Deco Foil Adhesive Pen and more Wild Cherry Deco Foil Transfer Sheet.  This pen is so cool, as it lets you add foil anywhere!  After trimming my sentiment into a banner, I adhered it to my card with foam tape.
