Leaf Stencil Embossing with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Favourite WOW! Technique. I used stencil embossing to create a fun textured background.

On a piece of white card, I first die cut a Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Diamond in the centre to create a window. 

Next, I used the WOW Clear Embossing ink over a Pretty Pink Posh Leaf Stencil, to add a diagonal of pattern to the pattern. I then heat embossed the pattern with WOW Colour Blend Verdigris embossing powder. This powder gives a lovely variation in colours, with each leaf looking a little different.

On my card base, I layered some Altenew patterned paper, then adhered the panel on over the top.

I stamped and copic coloured a giraffe from the Pretty Pink Posh Animal Signs stamp set, then tucked him in the diamond window opening.

For the sign, I stamped the giraffe again on to the same patterned paper as the background, then heat embossed a greeting from the Animal Signs stamp set with WOW Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder. I fussy cut out the sign, then adhered onto the card to finish.

Have a lovely day,

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
