Using ThermOWeb Foils For The First Time
Creating a modern pumpkin card with Joy Clair stamps
Have you ever seen those shiny foil papers and thought, “how pretty, but I’m not sure I can do that?” Well guess what? I got the chance to try them out and overcame my fear of trying something new, and it was SO easy! Joy Clair has teamed up with Therm O Web to teach you and inspire you. Today I’m showing you how to create a modern fall card using a sentiment from the newest Joy Clair Thankful and Blessed stamp set along with the Deco Foil Pumpkin Patch toner sheets and gold foil.
Start by using a stitched rectangle die cut. Cut out one large black sheet, the next size down black and white stripe paper and same size using the Deco Foil Pumpkin Patch toner sheets.
Creating your foil sheet – Since I’m completely new to foils, I decided to do some research and learned that you can simply use any kind of laminator. I picked one up fairly cheap on Amazon. To apply the foil, cut a sheet of Deco Foil a little larger than the size of your toner sheet. Fold a sheet of printer paper in half, place a scrap piece of cardstock down for reinforcement, then place your toner sheet (dull side up) with the foil (color side up), and finally close the flap of the printer paper. Carefully guide your paper through the laminator with the seam side first. Once it comes out the other side, remove the foil sheet to expose your design. It IS that simple.
Next, take your sentiment from the Joy Clair Thankful and Blessed stamp set, stamp it on a sheet of white cardstock using black ink. Then, take one of the gold Deco Frames, trim your sentiment to fit, and adhere together.
Lastly, assemble your card by layering the black sheet on the bottom, the striped, the pumpkins, and then the framed sentiment. For a final touch, I added a few orange enamel dots.
I hope you “FALL” in love with Therm O Web foils and Joy Clair stamps just as much as I did. They are so easy to use and there are so many wonderful products available. Check them out and share your Therm O Web and Joy Clair stamp projects with us!
