Video with Verity: Modern Monochromatic cards

 


Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! Monochromatic cards are fun to create and can add a lovely interest to your cards. Well, today I'm showing you three ways to create modern monochromatic cards that can WOW! your recipients when they arrive in the post. All three cards today feature either blue or teal colours, but you could choose any colour you prefer, so let's get started!

Check out the video over on the WOW! YouTube Channel here.

Modern Monochromatic Card Written Tutorial:


Technique 1: Watermark stamping

This card creates the monochromatic look using just the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow drying embossing pad. First of all, use the pad to stamp the rose from the Altenew Darling Rose stamp set onto Gina K Seaglass Cardstock with your embossing pad. This will allow you to do no-line clouring with pencils. 

Using a selection of teal pencils, colour the rose in, added darker shades in the creases of the petals to add depth and dimension. Once coloured, fussy cut the rose out. For the background, we will use the pad to create some tone on tone stamping. 

Stamp a selection of the leaves and rose around a Seaglass card panel, and position your coloured rose over the top to align the leaves on the background. Continue to do this until you have filled in your background to your liking. 

Add this background panel onto a blank card base and foam mount the foam onto the card. Add a heat embossed sentiment from the stamp set and finish with a few iridescent sequins to embellish the card. 


Technique 2: Colour match embossing

This time we'll add heat embossing, but use colour within the same tone as the card. Start off by stamping the PinkFresh Studio Colour Block Gradient Strips stamp set onto a piece of Gina K Tranquil Teal Cardstock with your embossing ink. 


Next, cover this with Sea of Tranquility embossing powder and heat set. This powder comes in the Seth Apter Cosmic Trio set. For the sentiment, I used the Julie Hickey Designs Lowercase alphabet dies to die cut 'happy bday' and foam mounted these onto the front of the card. 


I also added a thin sentiment strip reading to you which was created from an Altenew Sentiment Strip stamp set. To finish the card off, I added a few white Nuvo drops around the card. 



Technique 3: neutral heat embossing


This time we can add some detail with neutral heat embossing such as white, black and grey/silvers. For this card, stamp a snowflake from the Catherine Pooler Designs 'Chillin' Snowflakes' stamp set with your embossing ink pad. This card uses Gina K Blue Denim cardstock.



Next, cover this with High Heels WOW! Embossing glitter. Do not heat set until you have stamped and covered all of the background. When ready to heat set, do this from the back to prevent the glitter from blowing off. 


Adhere the card panel down onto a matching card base. For the sentiment, stamp a sentiment from the stamp set onto white card in Juniper Mist ink. Trim this down and foam mount onto the front of the card. 


Lastly, embellish the card with blue sequins to finish the card off.

  1. Three beautiful cards with a monochromatic feel Verity and love the three pretty card colours and love the SOT EP particularly lovely. Great colouring of the rose too. I was wanting some of GK Connect Glue but Bumbleberry have sold out so don't know if there is anywhere else in the UK that sells it. x

    1. Hi Pat, thanks for the lovely comments. Not sure if anyone else sells it but it is back in stock, though limited to 1 per order as it is very hard to get it in at the moment. Hope that helps!

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: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
