Hello there! It’s an exciting week on the Therm O Web blog as we team up with Miss Ink Stamps for lots of cuteness and inspiration! My cards feature the oh-so-adorable critters from the Bubbles stamp set, as well as several of Miss Ink Stamps’ fabulous stencils.
Blowing Bubbles Card
I couldn’t resist making a scene with these bubble-blowing cuties. The Random Dots Stencil was the perfect complement! I colored the images from Bubbles with Copics, cut them out, and added highlights with a white gel pen.
I blended white cardstock with Tumbled Glass and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Inks. After spraying the Random Dots Stencil with Pixie Spray, I applied a layer of Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel with the Stencil Pal.
After trimming a Laura Kelly Baby Swiss Dots Toner Sheet in half, I adhered Lily Pad Deco Foil with my laminator. I then blended the piece with Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Rustic Wilderness Distress Inks and buffed the foiled areas with a towel to remove the pooled ink. I die-cut the sheet with a grassy border die and added droplets of water.
Assembling the Card
I trimmed down the blue panel and adhered it to a card with Gina K. Designs Terrific Tape. I also trimmed down the grassy hill before attaching it with the 3D White Foam Tape Roll.
I affixed my colored images with a combination of 3D White Foam Squares and the Ultra Bond Adhesive Pen. I heat-embossed a sentiment from Bubbles, die-cut it, and attached it with foam squares. Finally, I coated the bubbles with Glossy Accents.
I couldn’t resist Miss Ink Stamps’ Rainbow Builder Stencil – so many options! That little mouse, from the Bubbles set, is normally perched atop a bubble, but I masked the bubble when stamping. I colored the mouse with Copics and fussy-cut him.
Stenciling a Rainbow
I decided to focus on just one of the rainbows from the Rainbow Builder Stencil. For the first stencil layer, I blended with Worn Lipstick and Cracked Pistachio, masking areas to prevent bleeding. The second layer was created with Squeezed Lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon. On the final stencil layer, I applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. Once the gel was ready, I transferred Iridescent Deco Foil with my laminator.
Foiling a Rainbow Background
With my laminator I applied Iridescent Deco Foil to a Candy Stripes Toner Card Front. Next, I blended the panel with the same distress inks used earlier and buffed the foiled areas with a towel.
Assembling the Card
I adhered the Toner Card Front to my card with Gina K. Designs Terrific Tape. After die-cutting the stenciled panel, I affixed it with the 3D White Foam Tape Roll.
I stamped a sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows stamp in black and attached the mouse with a foam square. I splattered the card with black ink for a bit of edginess (If I could have a do-over, I probably would omit the splatter).
This card features another cutie from the Bubbles set. As with the mouse, I masked parts of the image I didn’t want to use before stamping. I colored the hedgie with Copics, fussy-cut him, and added details with a white gel pen.
Adding a Foiled Border
The Ins & Outs Stencils from Miss Ink Stamps are so cool – I want the entire collection! This card uses the Bohemian set, which I paired with the Floral Wave Stencil. With the first layer of the Bohemian set taped to my panel, I secured the Floral Wave Stencil on top and blended it with Mustard Seed, and Squeezed Lemonade. Next, I taped the border layer to my panel and applied Transfer Gel Duo with the Stencil Pal. Once the gel was dry, I used my laminator to transfer Sunshine Yellow Deco Foil to the panel.
Assembling the Card
I die-cut the stenciled panel with a stitched rectangle die and splattered it with two gold sprays. I adhered a black mat to the panel with Gina K. Designs Terrific Tape and affixed the piece to a white card with the 3D White Foam Tape Roll.
I heat-embossed a sentiment from Sunshine & Rainbows and die-cut it into a banner. I popped up the banner and hedgehog with 3D Foam Squares and finished with a scattering of gems attached with the Ultra Bond Adhesive Pen.
