It's Thankful Thursday!

 It's Thankful Thursday!  I decided to enter cards into two challenges and since they were both 'sentiment' related, I decided I'd challenge myself to use the same sentiment... and it worked out!  I was able to make three cards!

I used Ultra Bak paper that my father brought home years and years ago!  It is a shiny paper that is like a sticker.  The sheets I have are posterboard size, but I imagine they come in smaller shapes too!

I used the Scanncut Canvas program to merge the letters of 'thanks' together.  I then cut them out on the Ultra Bak paper - one forwards and one backwards.  Since the sticker portion isn't super sticky, I was able to use it as a mask and then use my heat gun to lift it up.  My mom keeps bringing these sheets over and I'm so glad I found something to do with them!

This card was done using the reverse 'thanks' image and then I added glitter to the sticker!
The glitter idea came from a video by Jennifer McGuire

I used the sticker as a mask, which when hit with the heat come pulls up perfectly, and did the Bokeh method with ink!

I used the sticker, from the Bokeh card, and adhered it to similar color cardstock!  This was a quick one!
