Hope you have been enjoying the beautiful inspiration Pinterest based projects! I know I have!
While I do not have a green thumb, I absolutely LOVE flowers of all kinds! This layout was based on these beautiful roses…paper, glitter dust, and zots style!
Here’s a closer look at the glitter dusted paper roses…and I’m loving our new Therm O Web Glitter Dust Photo Corners!
Here’s the supplies I used:
Therm O Web Supplies:
Patterned paper – Crate Paper
Vellum – Ruby Rock-it Bella! Fundamentals
Flower punch – Marvy
Butterfly punch – Martha Stewart
You will need 4 punches of the flowers. You can use any 5 petal flower punch or diecut.
On a soft surface, like a stamping mat, or mousepad, take the tip of an embossing tool, and gently press into the center of petal.
Next, curl the edge of each petal over a small tool, or pencil. Repeat with 3 petals.
For the 4th petal, once you have pressed in the center of the petal, simply roll up the petals to create the center of the rose.
Adhere each flower layer with Zots. Spray lightly with Glitter Dust.
And voila! I’ve also added one paper rose to this quick card:)
Thanks for stopping by and making Therm O Web part of your creative day!
“Just a Note” CARD by Patti Milazzo
Therm O Web Supplies:
Therm O Web Mini Runner – Sticky Tape
Therm O Web Zots – 3D
Other supplies:DCWV Cherry Limeade Paper Stack
Mambi Black/White Pattern Papers
Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler Stamps
Black, White & Gray Cardstock
mini brads, flower punch
This beautifully quilted pillow was my PINspiration for the card above-
I really liked the cathedral window effect of this pillow and its striking color combination. As you can see, I kept my note card much more simple and used layered and folded circles to get a similar effect without too much fuss.
1. Create a 5″x6″ card from cardstock and cut a 1″ wide strip to go across the front of the card.
2. Cut 9 circles from cardstock- 2″, 2.5″ and 3″: 2 gray and 1 black of each size. Take 3 gray circles (each size) and mark the center points vertically and horizontally. If available, use a grid ruled craft mat to find these points. Then line up the marks and score to create a square within each circle. Fold the edges of the circles as shown above.
3. Next, cut 3 pattern paper squares to fit inside each scored circle. Use the Mini Tape Runner to adhere the circles inside.
4. Apply Mini Tape Runner Adhesive to the back of these scored circles and adhere them to the center of the other gray circles.
5. Machine stitch around the layered circles so that the stitching just catches each folded corner.
6. Again use the Mini Tape Runner to adhere the black cardstock circles to the front of the card. Then, apply 3D Zots to the back of each of the assembled gray circles and layer on top of the corresponding black circle.
7. Create a punched flower with brads and adhere this to the center of the medium circle also using 3D Zots.
8. To complete the card, stamp a sentiment onto white cardstock, trim and apply more 3D Zots to the back to adhere just below the paper strip.

This week and next we’re sharing wintery wedding projects and more to get you in the mood for love…or maybe just in the mood for a bit of fun!
Join us as our talented team of Designers share ideas and techniques for how to use our Therm O Web products in new fun ways!
Today’s project is from Designer Rebecca Keppel…her idea is not only beautiful for weddings…but birthdays too!
It is easy to add loose glitter to a card in different colors when you use Therm O Web iCraft sheets using a die cut machine. Pick a card with a base and decoration pieces. Cut out the card in cardstock and the decorations in i Craft sheets.
The Silhouette Cameo cuts through the iCraft sheets perfectly for beautiful detailed cuts! (You can also use punches to decorate a card with glitter).
When using multiple glitter types or colors, only peel the backing for the decorations you want in the first color and apply to the card at a time.
Peel off the top backing and pour glitter on top. Repeat this process for each glitter color. To seal the glitter onto the card spray with a few short blasts of Therm O Web Glitter Dust. For quick and easy confetti to include in the envelope, punch or die cut many tiny pieces. Spray with Therm O Web Glitter Dust for a sparkly finish.

We’re back with one more of our favorite recipes for the holidays!
No Christmas or holiday would be complete around our home without these!
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ⅓ cup vegetable shortening
- 2¾ cups all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- ⅓ cup full fat sour cream
- 1½ teaspoons baking powder
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 large egg whites
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 3 cups powdered sugar
- food coloring (optional)
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter and shortening about 30 seconds or until softened.
- Add sugar, egg, sour cream, baking powder, and lemon juice and mix until incorporated.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour. Scrape sides as needed.
- Divide dough in half. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours or until easy to handle.
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Roll dough on lightly floured surface to ⅛ inch thick.
- Cut with desired cookie cutter, dipped in flour to prevent sticking.
- Place on parchment or foil lined baking sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are firm and very lightly browned (these will not turn golden, they should still be white in color)
- Slide parchment paper with cookies attached onto counter top to cool for 5 minutes.
- Remove to wire rack to cool completely before icing.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment (or a hand mixer) beat egg whites and lemon juice until frothy.
- Add the powdered sugar and beat until combined and smooth.
- Add food coloring, if desired, and beat until combined.
- The icing needs to be used immediately, as it hardens.
- Place in a piping bag fitted with a fine tip.
- Trace the outer edge of the cookie with the icing
- “Flood” the inside of the cookies with icing (go back and forth with the icing until it is mostly covered with icing)
- Use a toothpick or an offset spatula to smooth out the icing and pop any air bubbles.
- Allow to harden for at least 2 hours.
- Store in an airtight container.
