Floral Cards with Jeannie

Hi! My name is Jeannie Lieu and I’ve been card making for about 4 years now. For me, card making is about creating for fun and having a creative outlet. I work a 9-5 job and came home exhausted. Now, I look forward to coming home to do something as simple as color. When I'm creating, I forget about my worries. One of my favorite things to do is surprising my friends and family with cards. In the age of technology, I personally love getting snail mail and I think everyone enjoys getting snail mail instead of an impersonal text message or even an e-card. 
Hi crafty friends! My name is Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) and I’m so excited to be guest designing for Wow! Embossing Powder for this month. I'll be sharing a variety of different cards using embossing powders in different ways to create cards so I hope you enjoy them. For my first post, I'm sharing three cards that are created strictly with just embossing powders. 

I wanted to play with darker cardstock mixed with embossing powder. I pulled out three colors of cardstock: red, blue, and black. To pair the embossing powder, I chose Rose Glintz, Metallic Gold Rich Pale, and Metallic Silver. 

I decided to use Pretty Pink Posh's Wild Rose stamp set for the three cards. These are large floral images that are perfect for the idea I had for these cards. Here are my pairings: Rose Glintz & black cardstock, Metallic Gold Rich Pale & blue cardstock, and Metallic Silver & red cardstock. I used all these images to stamp on the cardstock using the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and heat embossed the images. I didn't have the coordinating dies but these were all easy to cut out. 
For my main card panels, I trimmed them down so I could mat them on a card panel so the embossing powder peeks out on the edges. I just swiped the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad on the edges and heat embossed them. 
I wanted to add some accents to the card panel and Simon Says Stamps' Brushstroke Messages has these two brushstroke lines, it was perfect. Before I add all the floral images to the card panel, I wanted to emboss the sentiment. Using the Opaque Bright White, I stamped out the sentiment and this color is SO bright that I love how it stands out on the dark cardstock. 

I placed all the florals in the same position for all three cards and love how it all came together. I also have created a video to go along with it so please go ahead and check it out HERE

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
