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, and any excess trimmed.

Brushed Embossed Rainbow

Fancy a bit of free-style rainbow embossing with the WOW! Mixed Media Embossing Brush?
This technique is so easy and packs a big punch. The color possibilities are endless. I chose a 4 color rainbow so I could create thick stripes, but you could use all the colors of the rainbow.


To create those lovely distressed edges, apply the majority of the gel to the center so that the brush is dry before reaching the edges. Be sure to overlap the colors for a bit of blending.


Take note of whether the powders are transparent or opaque to better understand how they'll layer on top of each other. Here the pink, green, and teal are opaque, while the yellow is transparent.

I finished the card with a die-cut sentiment and Nuvo Crystal Drops. I hope you've been inspired by all of the WOW! rainbow embossing cards this month.

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! Clear Gloss embossing powder.  I could have also done it in Opaque Bright White. 



The Bristol is bright white so the result is the same.  I embossed three times to get a little dimension on the image although it is hard to see in the photos.  It would also be nice in a sparkling powder like Neutral Ultra Shimmer!

I then ink blended my Distress Inks over the top in rainbow order using Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Wilted Violet, and Picked Raspberry.   The embossing powder resists the ink and the mandala shows through the rainbow!


To finish I added some splatters of water and Tsukineko Shimmer Spray in Sparkle.  The sentiment is from the set and was stamped in Altenew Obsidian ink, trimmed out and popped it up on foam tape.

My next card uses colored embossing powders to create my rainbow.  I am using different powders to my previous rainbow posts - this time they almost all primary colors rather than embossing glitter, with the exception of the green which is metalline.


The colors I used were Primary Red Apple, Primary Bird of Paradise, Primary Lemon, Metalline Greengage (unfortunately no longer carried by WOW! but you can also try Earthtone Olive which is similar and doesn't have the metallic sheen, Primary Opaque Frozen, Primary Indigo, and Fusion Fuchsia.

I inked up the Mandala stamp with WOW! embossing ink again and this time, stamped it onto WOW! cardstock trimmed to 4.25" x 5.5".  I then added my embossing powders in order, making sure the powder slide off the side so as not to cover up all of the image with just one powder.  I caught the powder in a coffee filter, and then tipped it back into the jar before moving to the next. If any of the powders went to far down the image I used a blusher brush to remove them.  Once all were added, I heat embossed.


As it took me a while to do this (while filming and showing each powder) my embossing towards the bottom wasn't quiet full coverage. I had left my stamp in the MISTI so all I had to do was re-stamp and re-emboss to add in the purple and pink.  I then added in my sentiment (heat embossed on black cardstock with Opaque Bright White powder) and a few iridescent Hero Arts gems to finish!

Don't you just love this second one?  Isn't embossing powder amazing?

Jenny

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. This gives me instant ATC bases to work with plus it usually makes me look at these discarded projects in a different way.


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.

 
I added the circles to the ATC bases using my sewing machine and a black thread. Don't be afraid of doing this, any mistakes can be covered up and the free hand finish gives them a nice naive look I think.  

  

With the stars in place all I had to do was complete the trio with a phrase typed up on my typewriter. 





I love them and I hope you do too.
Jaine x
