I had the pleasure of playing with the Laura Kelly Collection from Thermoweb in the last couple of days and I have to say it made me giddy. Her designs are so simple yet heartwarming, it totall reminds me of my childhood and puts a permanent smile on my face. For the whole collection, please visit the Thermoweb shop, it has stamps, toner sheets and beautiful foils. (Fine print: I am not affiliated nor on the Design Team of Thermoweb, but the goodies were sent to me for a collaboration with one of my DTs. The package was late but I love the designs so much that I cannot stop creating with them. So get ready for more!)
Today’s card was made for my kids for a very special occasion, we just got our small puppy on Friday. It is a small Bichon Havanese, a beautiful fluffy furball. He is called Lucky (I guess he truly is as he is already so loved). He is going to live with my parents who live in the same building with us. But back to the card now.
I started with a piece of purple cardstock and used Thermoweb Deco Foil Gel on it through the Heffy Doodle Lots of happy stencil. I used Pixie Spray to hold the stencil in place and applied the gel with a Stencil Pal. It makes it a breeze. I removed the stencil and washed it right away. I set the background aside for a while to dry. When it is clear, you can go ahead and foil it with your laminator. I used the Laura Kelly Berry Purple Foil Transfer sheet, as I wanted a tone on tone look.
Meanwhile I stamped the girl, the boy and the puppy from the Me and my peeps stamp set on a white stitched rectangle. I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour them quickly, here is the list of colours I used: FS8, FS7, FS4, HB3, HB2, HB1, BT7, BT5, BT1, EB5, EB4, EB3, RB2, RB1. I stamped the You and me sentiment under them in purple (Catherine Pooler ink).
I white heat embossed Adventure time from the Heffy Doodle Wavy Banner Sentiment set on black cardstock ad cut it out with the coordinating dies. I popped it up with 3D foam squares under the stampd greeting and gave the panel a light blue mat.
After assembling the card I used a clear sparkle pen on the balloons and covered them with glossy accents.
I hope you like my inspiration today with the Laura Kelly collection mixed with Heffy Doodle goodies. I will be back soon with more!
