VIDEO | Mixed Media Backgrounds with Fab Foil

 

Hej and welcome! It's Martina here with you today sharing a fun Mixed Media background using WOW! Fab Foils.

There is also a process Video of these cards on the WOW YT Channel. *You can watch it here*


To create these backgrounds, I have been following these steps:

Stamping with Tashas "Abstract Triangle Stamp" on a piece of Mixed Media paper. It's important to use a waterproof Ink for this technique - I have been using Black Archival Ink and Versa Fine Clair Nocturne.

Then I have been colouring the papers with Lindys Starburst Sprays, but you could also use water colours or any othe water soluable medium.

When the colour and paper was completely dry, I have been applying The Crafters Workshop "Tacky when Dry" Medium through the "Dankcing Snowflakes Stencil".


When the medium was completely dry, I have been pressing the WOW Fab Foils to it and the backgrounds were finished.

To complete the cards, I have been using the "Winter Dreams Trio" on a Alexandra Renke "Happy" Die, a stamped Birthday from Veritys "Bithday Sentiments" stamps and some sequins.


I hope you liked this tutorial and feel inspired to get creative!

Have a great day!

Fun Backgrounds with Washi Tape and Powders

Hi everyone, Colleen here today sharing how to create a fun and easy background to your cards using two things - washi tape and our powders!  I love how washi tape can be large enough to cover an entire A2 sized card panel! It really makes for a fun and quick background! But sometimes I want to add just a little something-something to personalize it and make it my own.  The soluttion? Embossing Powders! 


For my card here, I started with a white card panel sized 5.5x4.25 and placed Altenew Painted Fantasy washi tape that is 4.5 inches in length over the card panel. Then I cut off the excess washi tape  Already I've got a fun background! 

Next, I grabbed a newer stamp set by Gina K Designs called Fluttering Fall. I chose this set because it is filled with flowers and butterflies, and I knew it would compliment my washi background. I stamped a few of the flowers from the stamp set over the flowers on the washi tape using WOW! Ultra Slow Drying embossing pad and added Rosy Cheeks and Firey Fun embossing powders to it. Both of those powders have colors that compliment the flowers on the washi tape, with an added bonus of glitter!  

TIP: The trick to successful heat embossing over washi tape is to get your heat tool good and hot for about 30 seconds. And remove it frequently from the washi tape until the embossing powder is set. If you do these two things, your washi is less likely to bubble up. If it does bubble up, it's easy to flatten it back down (run it through your die cut machine if necessary to flatten it out). 

Next it was time to place my butterfly onto the card panel.


The butterfly is a layered stamp, so the first layer of embossing powder was Mojito and the 2nd layer was Black Glint. I placed the sentiment just below the butterfly to draw the eyes towards the butterfly. Can you see it in the photo above? 

The last step was to trim down the card panel to 5.25x4 and place it over a black card base. I thought the black background would help my background pop off the page with intense color! 



That was it for this card! It was such an easy adn fun card to create and it's absolutely lovely, don't you think? There is so much washi tape on the market today, so you've got plenty to choose from if you want to create a similar look. But another option is to use your thin strips of washi tape and create diagonal lines across your card panel, heat embossing each one with a different embossing powder!

TIP: If you use washi tape that has a busy design, I recommend using embossing powder that is translucent and shiny so that you see the shine, but the powder won't cover up or compete with the image below it. For solid color washi tape, go for the Opaque powders in different colors! 

I'm so glad you stopped by today, and I hope that you walk away with a few ideas on how to use your washi tape creatively!

Colleen

Mixed Media with Sparkles

Hi Crafty friends!  It is Natasha and I am super excited to be back on the WOW blog today!  For today's post I am sharing a mixed media style card using both embossing powders and the Sparkle powders as well!  I had a lot of fun and I am excited to share my card with you!  So let's get started!  


I started by creating my colorful background on mixed media paper.  I have had this paper in my stash for awhile, but don't use it too often as it is lighter weight!  It worked perfectly for today's card.  I started with a mix of sprays from Dina Wakley.  I placed my card stock into my splat box and used different color sprays on my paper.  These are acrylic spays and they dry quickly.  


Once my background was dry I wanted to add some more texture to the background using 2 stencils from WOW.  I used both the Lots a Bubbles and Lots a Dots Stencils.  I placed these one at a time onto my colorful background and used a sponge dauber to add white acrylic paint through the stencil.  I repeated the same process for both stencils.  I love the added texture and dimension this gave to the background with just a stencil and some paint.  Next I added some mixed media style stamps to my background using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.  I stamped a few images and then set this aside to dry.  


While my background was drying I started to work on embossing a white panel for my die cut letters (Hello).  I placed the white paper onto my ink pad and pressed the paper onto the pad to allow for even coverage.  I then heat embossed the panel using Decadent Ruby Powder.  Next I die cut the word hello on my embossed panel.  I set these aside.  I wanted to add a bit more sparkle to today's card and used WOW Sparkles in Gold Dust.  To add the sparkle to my card I stamped an image onto the background using my WOW embossing ink pad.  I then sprinkled bonding powder onto the image and heat set.  This creates a "sticky" image which will then hold your sparkles.  Once I sprinkled the Gold Dust onto the image, I did heat set one more time to ensure the sparkles were on my panel.  


To finish my card I added a die cut element using black card stock, as well as a friend die cut.  I had so much fun with today's card!  

I love watching the powders melt and the sparkle in the Gold Dust just adds such a fun element to today's card!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I have linked all the WOW products I have used below!  

Crafty Hugs, 
Natasha
