Simple Thermoweb toner card front cards

You can make quick cards with a tons of sparkle and shine using Thermoweb toner card fronts. Sometimes I just turn on my laminator and run a bunch of toner fronts through to use for future cards I need in a hurry.

The first card uses the toner card front Reverse Polka Dot with Rainglow foil. I wanted to let the foil be the focus so I just die cut some cloud edge dies and a TE rainbow sentiment and then used some leftover Rainglow foil and a toner piece to die cut the cute little heart. I also added a Simon Says Stamps friend word die cut.

My next card uses the Unity Stamp Company Butterfly Fly Away toner front. I’m obsessed with this card front I always add a pack when placing an order with Thermoweb or Unity Stamp Company. I die just the Taylored Expressions Framed Hello die out of black glitter cardstock and then several times out of thick cardstock. Next I trimmed a piece of vellum to place behind the black piece and sandwiched the other die cuts to give dimension. Then a simple sending hugs sentiment die cut with a circle and a scallop gold glitter circle behind that. I used Thermoweb foam squares on the bottom half of the circle to give a little more dimension.

My third card is my favorite and it was a mistake! I had used an Easter egg toner card front with Rainglow foil. When I ran the Blossoms card front through the laminator I didn’t realize that the egg negative was behind my fresh foil. When I removed it from the laminator I had the egg negative print foiling the card front…. ugh. So I thought I’d try and salvage it. I took a bunch of small pieces of leftover foil and placed it over the card front and ran it through again. Everywhere the toner was foiled with the scraps. I also had some over foiling of the egg print but I actually liked the sketchy look of it. Then I used a TE frame die and inlayed it in the card using Thermoweb foam squares to pop up the center portion. I used a Taylored Expressions Handlettered stamp and it companion die for the sentiment as well as Unexpected Blessings stamp and die set. I used Copics to color the flowers and arranged them around the sentiment. I then added drip drops, tiny red rhinestones and sequins from my stash. My best advice about “mistake” toner card fronts is don’t give up keep working with them you can create something beautiful. Thanks for stopping by hope you have a Blessed Easter.

Thermoweb toner card fronts and Cover Plate Dies

Today I’m sharing easy ways to combine foiled toner card fronts and cover plate dies from your crafty stash. This is a great way to use foiled pieces that may have some imperfections.

My first card uses the Thermoweb Chic Chevron foiled in Deco Foil Brutus Monroe Rainglow. I love this foil so much with all its sparkle and rainbow goodness. After I foil the toner card front I used Taylored Expressions ink to create a ink blended rainbow over the foil. The foil resists the dye ink and you are left with beautiful ink blending combined with the gorgeous foil pattern. Next I simply die cut a cover plate with black cardstock and placed it over my foiled background. Next I ink blended another rainbow and die cut it with a heart die. I added a sentiment and some TE drip drops. I love how dramatic this looks with the black and rainbow elements.

My next card uses the negative foil piece from card one. I always have toner sheets on hard so I can foil using my negative pieces. For this one I liked the black toner that was left behind after foiling but you can also run this piece through the laminator again with a fresh piece of foil to cover any remaining black toner and the result would be a 100% covered piece.

I then used the same cover plate this time die cutting with white cardstock. I layered it on top of my foils piece and then used a scrap of the Rainglow foil and a scrap of toner sheet to create the heart element on the card. Then I stamped a simple Taylored Expressions sentiment and popped the whole thing on a black card base. I used a few TE drip drops and that finished the card. So I was able to make two cards with one toner card front and a piece of toner sheet.

My last card uses the same cover plate and this time I used the companion die and small pieces of scrap Deco Foil Rainglow foil and toner sheet to die cut the cute little pinwheels. I ink blended a rainbow on a piece of Hammermill 100lb smooth white cardstock, die cut the cover plate in white and layer them together. They I popped the three foiled elements on the card with iCraft liquid glue and some TE drip drops and a little die cut sentiment. This really is a bonus card just using small pieces of foil I could let go to waste. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

Trinity Stamps Gnomes and Thermoweb toner card fronts

I resisted the Gnome trend until I saw these Trinity Stamps cuties I just had to have them. They are so fun and easy to color, I used Copics for my cards today. I thought they would be adorable paired with Thermoweb toner card fronts.

My first card uses Thermoweb Rainbow Deco Foil paired with the Dainty Hearts toner card front. I used a laminator to foil the toner card front and die cut it using a Gina Marie Designs scallop stitched rectangle. Next I stamped and colored the Falling for You Gnome stamp and die cut it with a rectangle and then die cut the top with a stitched cloud die to show off as much of the foiled goodness as possible. All the Gnome sets do have coordinating dies I just don’t have them but they are on my shopping list for sure. Then I popped the cute sentiment over the pile of hearts and added some Tonic gloss shimmer and glossy accents to some of the hearts. A really simple card with lots of sparkle and shine.❤️

Here’s a close up

My next card uses Trinity Stamps Joyful Heart stamp set and Thermoweb Lots of Dots toner card front, foiled with Deco Foil Brutus Monroe Rainglow foil. This foil is so sparkly in person it’s really beautiful. One of the things I really like is it comes in 6×6 squares so you can easily cut it with the rainbow going in the direction you want for the card. I again colored with Copics and die cut with a scallop oval. Added some Tonic shimmer sparkle pen and glossy accents on the heart he’s holding. I simply stamped a sweet sentiment and die cut it with. trinity mini tag die then added a little bow with gold thread. Tying the bow was the hardest part of this one.

here’s a close up of that beautiful foil

My last card uses a Thermoweb/Unity Stamp Company toner card front. I LOVE these butterflies so much. I used Summer Sunrise foil it’s so pretty in person dark pink and bright golden yellow I have a hard time covering it up.

The stamp is Hello There and he’s adorable sitting on that flower. I wanted to make the golden foil pop so I colored the flower using yellow and oranges. I love a blue and orange color combination they are complimentary colors. I added more butterflies around the gnome from the stamp set and again used a die from Gina Marie designs. I used foam tape to pop the circle off the card front and a sentiment from Taylored Expressions die cut from an MFT rounded rectangle set from my stash.

One last thing I’d like to mention. As card markers we are always looking for the perfect adhesives. I am in love with the Thermoweb adhesive line I cannot stress enough how amazing their iCraft Ultra Bond is. It is slippery and gives you time to center and place die cuts on your cards. I use it on every card I make. Their iCraft tear tape is also awesome it’s super easy to tear and more importantly it’s very easy to remove the backing. I use this on every card as well. I use these two products to adhere all my card fronts to my bases. I add the tear tape to the border of my card front leaving the backer on. Next I add some liquid glue to the center, then I can move and slide the front exactly to where I want I give it a few minutes to set and then I reach underneath and peel the backers off of the tear tape. Its been a game changer for me. I’d encourage you to try their foam adhesives too they come in different thicknesses and it’s great for building different heights on dimension on your cards. I did that on all my cards today I wanted the sentiments lifted slightly higher that my other die cuts I’m able to achieve this without have to double up foam. Thank you so much for stopping by leave me a comment if you have questions.❤️

Thermoweb Opal Deco Foil two ways

Using Blanco transfer gel over ink blending

My first card I ink blended the entire background using Taylored Expressions Strawberry Milkshake, Sprinkles and Potato Chip inks.

then I used Blanco transfer gel and the TE bunny stencil. I carefully removed the stencil and immediately washed it with warm soapy water. Then set the panel aside to dry.

once dry I heated up my laminator and used the Opal foil. Because I used Blanco gel the bunnies are opalescent white. If I would have used the Thermoweb Duo they would have been opalescent but the ink blending would show through. My next card will show that look.

Opal foil using Duo transfer gel

For this card I started ink blending through the stencil leaving the background white. I used the same ink colors as the first card. next I wiped the stencil clean with a microfiber cloth while it was still on my card panel. Then I used Thermoweb Duo transfer gel and applied it through the stencil over my ink blended bunnies. Again I carefully removed the stencil and washed it immediately and set the panel off to dry.

Once dry I heated up my laminator and used the Opal Foil. This time the bunnies are colorful and opalescent. This Thermoweb Opal foil is so beautiful and perfect for all your Spring projects. Thank you for stopping❤️

Thermoweb Embossed Flock and Toner Card Fronts

I started by die cutting white flock twice with a die from The Greetery. Then I die cut heavy weight card stock with the same die and adhered it to the flock using Thermoweb tear tape. Next I placed it in a Spellbinders 3D basket weave embossing folder and ran it through my Big Shot. Embossed Flock is gorgeous I’m definitely adding the pastel colors to my next order.

I used the adorable Easter egg toner sheet from the limited edition basket of fun collection. I used Gina K Design Glistening Gold foil and ran it through my laminator. Next I used a turquoise and pink Zig Real Brush marker scribbled the colors on a large stamp block added water and dipped the foiled card front into the ink. I did it a couple of times drying in between to get a “dipped painted” egg look. I layer my Embossed flock over the foiled card front and added a sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

Thank you so much for stopping by❤️

Thermoweb Opal Foil with Ink Blending

Taylored Expressions Blooming Beautiful Stencil

I started by ink blending Taylored Expressions ink in the colors Sprinkles, Strawberry Milkshake and Potato Chip through the stencil. Then I wiped the stencil clean and applied Thermoweb Duo Transfer Gel over the top. I removed the stencil and let it dry. The Duo Gel dries transparent. Then I used the Opal Foil and ran it through my laminator. The Opal foil is semi transparent and has a gorgeous opalescent shine. The result is a Opal shine that lets the ink blending show through. I simply added a sentiment from the New TE Easter release and then added an action wobble spring to the circle die cut for a fun little “springy” surprise.

Here’s a close up

I hope you like the card it’s so shiny and I love how the soft ink blending shows through. I’ll be sharing more fun Spring and Easter Thermoweb projects. If you don’t want to miss it sign up to be notified to see new projects. Thank you so much!
