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 stencil, Deco 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!
