Love Ya! Heart Card with Therm O Web and Lawn Fawn

Thursday, January 19, 2023

I was so excited to open up a package from Therm O Web that was filled with amazing products - including the new Love Struck Deco Foil Toner Card Fronts and Love & Kisses Adhesive Transfer Designs! I had never used Adhesive Transfers before, so I was so excited to play.

I started with foiling the heart filled Toner Card Front from Love Struck with the Radiant Red Deco Foil with my Minc Machine. It seemed to be acting up a bit as it wasn't heating up as hot as normal, but luckily my hearts turned out pretty well! I added Distress Oxides in pink shades - I covered the whole card with Spun Sugar and added Kitsch Flamingo around the edges. I wanted a border, so I trimmed it down to 4x5-1/4" and adhered it to a mint green cardstock background, which is on a side folding A2 card.

After die cutting the "Love Ya!" heart out of mint cardstock, I added some Lucky Clover to create a second tone of green. I also stamped, colored and cut out my flowers, leaves, heart tag banner and this cutie skunk. I then traced the Love Ya! heart on a piece of acetate and cut out a solid heart. I then added a bunch of the hearts from the Love & Kisses Adhesive Transfer all over the acetate with my Spellbinders Platinum - used the pressure to add the adhesive to the acetate since my Minc was being weird. Then I added the Hearts of Love Deco Foil so that it would stick to the adhesive and ran it through my Platinum again. It created such a fun acetate heart! I glued it to the back of the Love Ya! heart and added some thin foam strips around the edge of the heart.

Before adhering it to the background, I layered in some of the flowers and leaves, then removed the backing of the foam adhesive to add the heart. I also glued more flowers around the heart and added my skunk with its heart tag banner with a little foam adhesve under the feet for stability.

This design was inspired by last Friday's episode of Craft Roulette and also the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. Now that I feel more comfortable with the new Therm O Web products, you'll be seeing them pop up in other projects the next month and should be in a video or two.
