Using our favorite boxer for this project available at Simon Says Stamp and at The Rabbit Hole Designs stores.

These are clear designer toner sheets. You get 4x A2 sheets in each pack and can be cut accordingly. This is similar to acetate, but already with an image printed on.

To color the toner sheet, choose a Deco foil transfer sheet color that will match your project. I used Emerald watercolor today. Links are on the images.

Here is how I made this Boxer shake:
*
**Switch on your laminator!***
1. Stamp, cut and color Boxer. I used Copics to color.
2. Stamp and cut the sentiment.
3. Use a frame die to make the actual shaker part.

4. Cut the clear designer sheet to 4 x 5.25. You can also use a stitched die.
5. Cut a piece of transfer sheet big enough to cover the clear designer sheet.
6. Following the instructions on the packaging, feed the sheet and toner sheet through a hot laminator. The “black” picks up the green and all the shine!
7. Adhere the frame to the designer sheet on top.
8. Apply foam tape underneath the sheet and frame. The frame hides the foam tape.
9. This is a top folding 4.25 x 5.5 card. Place sequins/shakers on top of the card and finish the shaker.
10. Apply the dog and sentiment, and you are done in 10 steps!

Hope you liked my card and all the elements I used from Therm-O-Web. These Clear Designer Toner Sheets are amazing and very easy to work with. I hope you will give it a try!

Hi Sassy friends! 

My name is Charmaine from CharCards and I this will be my first time designing for The Rabbit Hole Designs blog. I am very honored to have been chosen for the team as these stamps speak to my sassy, sarcastic inner wild child. This was a definitely a match made in heaven!

Let me show you how I made Miss Sassy Pants sparkle using heat and foil!

This magical stamp set can be used to make funny, sweet and silly cards. I chose to make a friendship card with the flying unicorn.

The front of the card is made by using one of the newly released stencils, Diamond Flower stencilDeco Foil Transfer gel and foil similar to Deco Foil Silver Star foil available at The Rabbit Hole Designs store and at Simon Says Stamp.

Before we start getting shiny, switch on the laminator. Give it a good 20 minutes before using.

Place the 6×6 stencil over a sheet of Neenah cardstock 110lb paper, or any other heavy duty cardstock. I use washi tape to keep everything in place but Pixie Spray is pretty handy here. Smear the transfer gel evenly across the stencil and paper using a craft knife or old credit card. Immediately wash the stencil in warm soapy water to avoid hardening of the gel. Set this aside and allow the gel to dry for about an hour. 

Stamp and fussy cut the unicorn. I use a Brother Scan n Cut to save some time. To avoid from distracting  from the beautiful foil, I kept the coloring of the unicorn to a minimum. I used two shades of pink for the hair and Copic markers C1 and C3 for the “white” of Sassy’s body. Adhere a few pieces of dimensional tape to the back to give her some pizzaz!

This is a 4.25 x 5.5 top folding card. Adhere patterned paper on the inside of the card, same size as the card.  For the sentiment, I used a dialogue box die and the sweet friend sentiment.

Place Silver Star foil or similar foil over the dried gel on cardstock. Sandwich both pieces between parchment paper and feed it through the laminator. Set the dial to 5mm. Cut the beautiful, shiny result the same size as the card, 4.25 x 5.5.

Place a circle die big enough on the bottom corner of the result and position the unicorn in such a way that the unicorn doesn’t get hung up as the card is opened. Use the shiny result card stock sans the circle and draw a pencil mark on the front of the white card to make an additional circle die cut. Two cuts are necessary because the gel result with two layers of cardstock might not make a smooth, clean cut. Adhere the shiny piece to the front, adhere Miss Sassy and there you are!

Pretty, shiny unicorn card!
