VIDEO: WOW! + Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Embossing

Have a blast making rainbow embossing cards with WOW! and Simon Says Stamps Thankful Flowers. So fun using all the bright and cheery powders! YouTube Tutorial | WOW! + Simon Says Stamp Rainbow Embossing All the details to create these delightful rainbows embossed handmade cards are in this video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube . Simon Says Stamp Thankful Flowers Simon Says Stamp Thankful Stamp Set has large weighty sentiments and fabulous florals. The bold sentiments are excellent to add black contrast to these rainbow embossed florals. The two individual flower stamps are heat embossed with WOW! Love is the Drug, Metalline Flame, Primary Lemon, Metalline Kiwi Krush, Jealous Guy, and Angel Eyes. I love to design with pops of black and prefer to have at least 3 black elements on a card. The sentiment, strips of black cardstock, and Nuvo Crystal Drops create a triad of contrast. The heat embossed flowers are die-cut, popped up on foam squares

VIDEO: Rainbow Mandala Two Ways with Jenny Colacicco

Hi everyone! I hope you're staying safe and healthy during these trying times.  We are nearly done with rainbow month at WOW! but I still have time to squeeze in just one more (or two actually)!  I am using the wonderful WOW! Embossing Mandala stamp set designed by our very own and very talented Karen from the Design Team, and I'll show you two different ways you can use it. I've also got a video showing you how I created these cards over on the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel or here: My first card features emboss resist using a rainbow array of Distress Inks and WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder.   I first stamped the main Mandala image in WOW! embossing ink onto Bristol Smooth cardstock trimmed to 4.25" x 5.5". I then heat embossed three times in WOW!

Use It Up Destiny ATC's by Jaine

Like a lot of us at the moment with time on our hands, I've been having a bit of a craft room clear out. My box of discarded experiments and painty backgrounds needed a bit of a sort out. Something I like to do quite often is to take these backgrounds and cut them into ATC's.

At the same time I also cut shapes from others, my go-to shape always being circles. Using these circles I drew freehand doodle shapes with the Freestyle Embossing Tool with its lovely smooth roller ball top. I embossed over this with a mixture of Seth Apter's Metalz Trio powders. I decided to cut a few stars as a complement to the circles already cut and used an offcut of black card to emboss the Metalz Trio's onto before cutting a selection of different sizes out. I like the effect of using a black background as it makes these powders even grungier.
