Kraft and white WOW!

Hello!  Jen Roach here and today I have a few quick and easy cards to share with you that I created using some kraft cardstock, WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder and the WOW! Gratitude stamp set

But first, don't forget about the blog hop (with an awesome prize pack) that we have going on.  All of the details can be found on Suzy's  post here.


For this first card I created the background using two stamps from the WOW! Gratitude set. I put both of the strips onto the same block before stamping which made creating the background super quick.  For the ticket strip I lined up the stamps so that the ends were touching and then embossed and cut them out.

For the second card I used a tree stencil template.  I applied Versamark ink all over the surface and then embossed with the opaque white WOW! powder. I also "distressed" the edges with my Versamark pad, dipped the edges into the powder and embossed again.  I finished off the card with some white ruffle ribbon, baker's twine and a sentiment flag that I stamped in kraft ink.

Supplies (Grateful):
WOW! Stamps: Gratitude set
WOW! Embossing Powders: WL01 - Opaque bright white
Ink: Versamark Ink (for embossing)
Papers: The Paper Company kraft cardstock, Georgia Pacific white cardstock
Accessories: Wood button, Prima flowers, pearl straight pins, Fiskars scalloped border punch
