Mini Cards using Tags with Karen Reategui

Hello shiny friends! Today I'm over the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog sharing these fun tags, that you can use like mini cards, using Pinkfresh Studio Dies and GinaK Designs Stamp and Dies. The embossing powders used are: WOW! Sunburst, Primary Bluetiful and Opaque Pastel Pink colors. Let's shine! I started by stamping the cupcakes from GinaK Designs Make A Wish Stamp using Picket Fence Studios Black Hybrid Ink and heat embossed them with WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. I colored the cupcakes using Copic markers and fuzzy cut each of them. Then, using one of the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials: Classic Tags With Fillable Elements Die Set I die cut three pieces of white cardstock. I applied Distress Oxide inks to those tags using the Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes Set. Additionally, I stamped the sentiment on top of each tag. These tags will be the inside of the mini cards. Next, I die cut three more tags using this time the f

What is your favourite thing about crafting? The thing I love most about crafting is learning and playing with new products. I also love seeing products come back and do a full circle so we are able to reintroduce trends back. If you could chose to do anything to do for the day, what would it be? I would love to take my family to Disneyland.  The idea of taking my family to an overseas trip is on my bucket list to do. What’s your favourite genre of music? My all-time favourite type of music is R n B – soul, dance, rap. Anything R N B related I am on the dance floor or making my own dance floor wherever I am.  What is your favourite book to read? I love reading and don’t have a favourite book per se but a favourite series. I loved reading the Vampire Academy Series. I love all sorts of books really and I do tend to gravitate to modern romance as well. I know I know they are such a contrast of genres but really do love a good book. Aside from necessities, what one th

Superfast Watercolor Emboss Resist Three Ways with Jenny

Hi Everyone! It's Jenny here, and today I'm sharing three cards with you that use one of my favorite techniques - emboss resist, with watercolor.  The added 'bonus' on these three cards is that the background is super quick and easy.  You embellish them as much or as little as you like (or depending on how much time you have!) and I have a few ideas here to inspire you. There's a video too which you can find here, or over on the WOW! Embossing channel . All three of my cards feature the WOW! Secret Garden stamp set designed by Marion Emberson - I love this stamp, it's got super pretty florals that are great for coloring or these techniques. For my first card, I first stamped Secret Garden onto Distress watercolor cardstock with WOW! embossing ink.   I then heat embossed it with WOW! White Pearl embossing powder (LOVE). I watercolored the panel (which I adhered to a board with tape) with my Altenew Pan watercolors, painting clear water over
