Giveaway of Flights of Fancy and Big Words

Today I have a special post for you. I get to do an introduction of the two stamp sets I designed for WOW! I will share a card and a video where I talk a bit more about the sets and I hope you'll love them as much as I do. AND there is also a giveaway! WOW will give away one each of the two new sets Flights of Fancy and Big Words to two of our readers. All you have to do to have a chance to win is to comment on this post and tell us which one of the sets are your favourite and why. Good luck!

Let me tell you about my card first and then I'll get back to the stamps. It's a really easy card to make. I diecut the background out of smooth white cardstock. I wet a part of the paper and added distress inks so they blended. Dried it really carefully with my heat tool. It's important to let it dry completely because the embossing powder will stick to anything moist. I stamped the High Five and embossed with Calypso Glitter. Then I stamped the feather from Flight of Fancy (or it could be a leaf, you decide) and embossed it in my favourite Clear Matt Dull embossingpowder. It looks very cool and faint but gives a lot of fun texture. And that's it. 

I made a video to show you the sets and tell you a bit about them. But you can get the short version here. The Flights of Fancy set is a very fun and versatile set. They can be leaves or they can be feathers, no one knows for sure what they are. They can even be little trees if you feel like it. I love graphical stamps that can be used as is or colored or embossed or whatever you feel like that day. They work great with the powders from WOW of course, they practically scream to be embossed (and watercolored. Or foiled. They look fab foiled).  

I made the Big Words to use as sentiments on cards. But they would look very good on layouts and in mixed media projects, art journaling and for other projects too. They are what they are called, big words, for many occasions. They can be combined with eachother and with other sentiments. I included an exclamation mark (that can be the i in I love you if turned upside down) and also an ampersand and some small dots to continue the sentiment on the inside of a card or in another place on the page or card. They are very fun and look amazing embossed and foiled. And here's the video where I talk about them, enjoy!

And here's a collage of the cards I showed in the video.

    1. Beautiful cards and stamps! F&F set is I like more.

  2. i adore thebig words stamp set - as ajournaller they would be so very useful! girgeous makes ... stunning xx

  3. A duo of fabulous sets, Maya ... congratulations! Great showcasing of both ... brilliant cards! I particularly love the Flights of Fancy ... so yummy! Anita :)

  4. Two fabulous stamp sets I love them both ! At first I thought the big words was my favorite set, then watched the videos and checked the samples again and decided that actually I like the flights of fancy set just slightly more, so that is my favorite set. I would love to see this set used with some of the WOW embossing powders, both white as a resist against darker inks/paints on background and with the vibrant EP colours.


  5. Wow, both stamp sets are amazing! Hard to choose a favourite! I think I will pick Flights of Fancy because I like to colour! I would be so happy to win - I have not had the opportunity to try WOW stamps so would love to! Thank you!

  6. Wonderful vars and
    lovely colors? I like
    the flights of fancy

  9. Comment : Difficult to decide a favourite between a sentiment set and an image set but I tried... My first impulse would be the Flight of fancy but actually the wise choice is the Big Words. I may have several Thank you stamps but I have none saying Be(you)tiful or even Smile. These original words, in big sizes, can make the focal point of a card as well as adding a sentiment to another image, making them more versatile.
    PS: Adore your green Smile card!

  10. I CAN'T CHOOSE!!! lol.... I love leaves and I love feathers, so the Flights of Fancy really appeals to me. I adore emboss resist, and these would look just fabulous done up that way.
    I LOVE the Big Words, too. I don't have anything in my stash like that set and I know I would get a lot of use out of it.....but I can't quite tear myself away from the Flights of Fancy. I just can't choose between these two awesome sets!!!! I would be delighted to win either of them!!!!

  14. High five on you Maya and i really liked your video❤️ My favourite stamp set is the Flights of fancy. Hugs!

  15. ADORE them both! Absolutely love that wonderful & friendly typeface and I never met a feather I didn't like . . . these will be terrific to color. Super nice job, whoever you are (how come so many bloggers never identify themselves?)

  16. both sets are fantastic, with a slight preference for the Big word one as I could you use it on scrapbooking layouts and cards and I usually miss stamps with sentiments. I love the font and the creative way the letters are displayed for each word

  17. Love your stamps!
    I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

    Your new stamps are FABULOUS and the cards you shared in your video introduction are AWESOME!!!
    I LOVE using BIG sentiments but I have to confess that my head is FILLED with feather & leaf projects after seeing your lovely introduction, so my favourite is Flights of Fancy :)
    THANK YOU for the chance to win!!!

  19. Both sets are brilliant and your cards are amazing. I'd have to pick the Big Words set as I'm always so short of word stamps

  20. Wow! What a beautiful card!
    I love these leaves because they are so flexible in use.
    I would love to create a wedding invitation with them!

  21. Congratulations on having these two gorgeous stamp sets released!! As to choosing a favourite, I've tried but can't!! They both would work beautifully together and make some gorgeous cards!

  22. I love both of the sets, but I really like the big words stamp set. I can see all sorts of card options with them.

  23. I think the Big Words would be a fun set to have. I don't have any sets with larger words - really don't have even small words, not sure why.
    As you said - these would work well in journaling projects as well as greeting cards.
    thanks for the chance to win one.

  24. These are lovely and your card is stunning

  25. Beautiful cards and these 2 stamps are my favorites for sure. Thanks for a chance to win.

  26. Fabulous cards and fabulous stamp sets. I love them both, but would perhaps pick the words one

  27. Love the technique you used and love those stamp sets! If I could only afford to pick one it would be the words because they will go with so many styles of cards or other projects: they will be used the whole year round too. Thanks for sharing and for the chance Karen

  28. Really love these modern, cool cards! So inspiring and fresh! Desperately NEED these stamps so pick me! ;0 WOW is such an inspiring place to be...
