Welcome to the blog! Today I have a couple of cards to share which I made using Brutus Monroe's Designer Toner Sheets! The package comes with four sheets in all, two of which are printed on white paper and I used Marble for my cards! My new laminating machine ate two of my recent projects and one is currently stuck in the machine, waiting for attention from my hubby! Since I couldn't use foil on these, I wanted to show that you don't NEED a laminator to use these awesome products! Let me tell you how I made my cards! First of all, I trimmed down the toner sheet to fit my A2 card, then sponged distress oxide inks in various colors over the pattern, ending with a layer of Black Soot. The paper has a very smooth surface so I wiped any excess ink off with a paper towel. How cool is that?! We all love making galaxy cards, right?!
I always like to spatter drops of water over oxide inks for the effect it gives, so I did that and then spattered white paint to depict the galaxy of stars. I have a really fun space set and heat-embossed the planet stamp, colored it with some Zig markers, then sponged a little more Black Soot over it to tone it down. Having recently received some great products from Thermoweb, I adhered my planet with their 3D Foam Squares which was SO much easier than my usual cutting pieces of foam tape, getting my scissors all gummed up! I added Wink of Stella clear glitter ink to the card for a little sparkle!
The space stamp set also came with this JOURNEY sentiment (I wish I knew who makes the set but it was secondhand to me!) and I heat-embossed it directly to the card front in white. I'll be happy to get my laminating machine fixed but in the meantime, it's good to know I can still use these great toner sheets!
I wasn't going to share this card because my heat-embossing got a little messy, but it shows the galaxy pattern with a little less black ink covering up the colors! The constellation stamps are from Simon Say's Stamp's Seeing Stars. Brutus Monroe has a great assortment of toner sheet designs, so be sure to check them out and "create your own ending"!
