Today’s share is all about foiling mixed with some product information. If you’ve followed us for a while, you’ll know the Nerds love Deco Foil. 😀
Thermoweb released a new product call Transfer Gel and it recently hit our shelves and my crafting desk, I’ve created a video and a few cards to share how the Transfer Gel works and you can see a list of my supplies at the bottom of this post.
Here’s a closer look at the cards I created.
If you have any questions about the Deco Foil Transfer Gel or the projects created, please comment on this post and we will be happy to help.
Hi there, Joy here with you today for our card share.
Today’s card really focuses on the beautiful Mandala stamp from Studio Katia. I love to colour the Mandala, the look changes every time and I’ve used several different mediums. The card today is a gate fold card, it’s been a long time since I made on of those. 🙂
The measurements for this gate fold card are;
5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and
it was scored at 2 1/8″ & 6 3/8″
I used Versamark ink to create the polka dot background and the brushstroke area where the sentiment is. The dot stamp and brushstroke stamps are from the Studi Katia Brushstrokes stamp set which I think is a great basic set.
I used Archival ink to stamp the sentiments inside and on the inside of the card.
This card came together quickly after water colouring the Mandal image.
Thank you for stopping the SN blog, I hope you got inspired.
Hello crafty friends,
Today’s share has a lot of stamping using just one stamp set. The SK Brush Strokes stamp set is very versatile and it’s a great basic stamp set.
I started by stamping the brush strokes on a cream background and I used second generation stamping to get a lighter version of each of the colours. (second generation stamping is simply stamping a second time without reapplying ink after you’ve stamp an image for the first time.)
I used 3 other stamps from the same set with black & tan ink to add the splatter images. I die cut a small tag from some pattern paper for the sentiment from the Dup Talk stamp set. I added some twine to the tag and then adhered it to the card with double-sided foam tape.
I hope you found some inspiration for your cardmaking. Thank you for visiting the SN blog today, happy crafting!
Happy Sunday friends!
I have another masculine card for you today. I went through my stash and grabbed some
Crate Paper Boys Rule papers, some dies, and pop dots. I used some paper scraps for some layering and before gluing things down, I inked the edges of all the papers with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I cut three small stars and one large one large star as the focal image.
I created a dimensional look on the largest star by creasing the paper from all points on the star and using pop dots on the back in the center to keep it popped up. I stacked three layers of pop dots to do that.My nephew recently for excepted into Fanshawe College out in London, Ontario so my plan was to give this card to him. The congrats sentiment was die-cut using the Celebration Block Words die from Tim Hotlz. That finished off this week’s card share, thank you for visiting the SN blog.
I hope you found some inspiration in today’s post. Happy crafting!
Hello SN friends,
I’ve got some masculine inspiration for you today using some Therm-o-web Deco Foil.
I die-cut the start from some Toner Paper so I could add foil to the top using a laminator machine.
The stars were cut again out of some black cardstock so I could use the leftover/negative piece leftover. I stamped the panel with a background stamp before backing it with blue cardstock. I glued the foiled stars back into their spots and then glue the sentiment in the bottom right.
The foiled stars are not perfectly covered in foil, I like that somewhat distressed look.
I hope this inspired to a little today, thank you for stopping by the SN blog.

Hello crafty friends,
Sometimes I’m a bit behind on trying out new trends and that was true for the all of those sequins out there. I jumped in and I bought a few bags of Studio Katia sequins several weeks ago and I’ve been enjoying using them as embellishments and in some shaker cards.
I used some watercolour paper for a bit of added texture and cut the Stitched Loops towards the left side of the cardstock panel. I used some double-sided foam tape on the back of the panel and in-between the circles to create the space to contain the sequins behind each circle.
After adding the sequins and some seed beads I simply covered the back with a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamped the sentiment and then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 white card base (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).
Thank you for stopping by the SN blog, I hope you got inspired.
Hello my friends,
I’ve really been enjoying water colouring and the new products from Studio Katia over the past few weeks. The SK sequins are great for embellishing and for making shaker cards.
Today’s share has me thinking of Spring with the beautiful flowers and the colours I used. The sequins were my inspiration.
I heat embossed the flowers and leaves on watercolour paper for easy colouring, the raised edges of the embossing powder helps keep the water contained inside the image. After they had dried I fussy them each image and added double-sided foam tape to the back of the centre flower.
The sentiment on my card today was typed up on my vintage typewriter.
Happy Sunday friends,
Thank you for stopping by for another card share, this week we’re featuring a beautiful stamp set from Studio Katia called Together We Bloom. This beautiful floral set is so trendy and has a lot of flower images to choose from. I’m really into heat embossing right now so I grabbed some copper embossing powder after I figured out where I wanted the sentiment on the die-cut stitched panel.
I used my Stamp Perfect tool for all the stamping on this card as I was using watercolour paper and this allowed me to stamp each image 2-3 times in the exact same position. Love this tool for good ink coverage on the uneven watercolour paper texture.
I loosely watercoloured on more watercolour paper using the die-cut panel as a guide, I did make sure that the colour was poking out from behind. I used foam tape on the panel to give it some dimension and added some black ink splatters to tie in with the sentiment. The watercolour has some big impact so I didn’t feel the need to add embellishments.
That’s it, my friends, I hope you are inspired to get out your embossing powders again.
See you next week.
Hello crafty friends,
Today I want to share a bright & cheerful card with you using the new Studio Katia Mandala stamp. This stamp is so versatile and is great for colouring with alcohol markers, watercolour products and distress inks. I started by heat embossing the Mandala with white embossing power on 110lb smooth white cardstock. Then using the mini blending tool I added 3 colours of distress ink; Evergreen Bough, Peacock Feather & Picked Raspberry. I blended the flowers first followed by the pink background.
Once everything was dry, I splattered some plain water onto the pink area, let it sit, and then pressed a paper towel on top to pick up the excess water. Love this look.
I finished off the card by mounting it onto a black card base and heat embossing the sentiment with the same white embossing power. Thank you for stopping by the SN blog today, I hope you found some inspiration. See you next time. 🙂
