Fab Foils Over Ink Blending with Jenny Colacicco

Hi Everyone!

It's Jenny here, and today I'm joining you with a simple but pretty card that uses WOW!'s Fab Foils.  You can get a gorgeous effect by overlaying foils on ink blended backgrounds. I've been having so much fun recently (and chilling out) by making new ink blended combo backgrounds - just doing lots of blending.  I used one of those backgrounds for my card today.  I do apologise but I don't have a video this time, but watch this space for some more Fab Foil action in a forthcoming vid!



To create my ink-blended background I used Altenew inks and the following combo: Baby Pink, Butternut, Dew Drops and Eastern Sky.  The way they overlap and create new colors is gorgeous, and it creates a beautiful rainbow.   I used thicker cardstock, and when finished I spritzed the background with shimmer spray to give a shimmery look.

For my foiling medium, I like to have dimension, so I used Decofoil thermel gel which you can apply with a palette knife and then once it is dry, it turns clear.  If you don't wait, it will squish a bit in your laminator when you foil it so be warned (you can see where it did that on my card a little,  but it's ok, it's handmade!).


I used this supercute Floral Wallpaper stencil from Altenew and smoothed over the gel. When it was dry, I covered it with two strips of WOW! Fab Foil in gold and then ran it through my Minc machine but you can also use a laminator.  Doesn't that gold look amazing against the rainbow background!

Because of the WOW! factor of that background, I kept the rest of the card clean and simple.  I used the Fancy For You die by Altenew, die cut three times from white cardstock and adhered together. I adhered it to the background with a vellum frame mat (Nested Frame by Altenew) and then hid foam adhesive behind the letters to give some dimension.



I highly recommend you give this a go!

Jenny

VIDEO: Nature Neutrals Embossed Backgrounds

Hi, friends, Amber here! Vibrant colors are my jam, but nature provides some great neutrals too! Join me to create fabulous nature-inspired backgrounds.


Green is one of my favorite colors. So, I keep a few different shades of green WOW! Embossing Powders on hand. And you guessed it, they're perfect for our nature-themed Monthly Challenge on Facebook this month. 

Details to create these nature neutral embossed backgrounds are in this short card making video. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. Be sure to subscribe while you're there!

Hello Tropics

First up, is a tropical-vibe card suitable to send to friends and family to say "Hello, wish you were here." 

As you can see, Altenew Wild Ferns Stamp Set goes perfectly with WOW! Metalline Kiwi Krush, Lime Rickey, and Gold Pearl embossing powders. The result is a fresh neutral palette.

WOW! Gold Pearl is a new favorite of mine. Due to its creamy subtle tone, it coordinates with just about any project. 

Backgrounds like this come together easily and here are some tips to get you going. 

  • Put each stamp on a separate acrylic block
  • Start the pattern in the center and work your way out
  • Stamp and heat emboss one leaf at a time to prevent the powders from becoming contaminated
  • Stamp the images off the page for a pattern paper look
  • Keep the distance between each image consistent

Lastly, Altenew Fine Frames Square Die Set and Bold Greetings die-cuts finish off the card. 

Trendy Brushstrokes 

Coupled with WOW! Colour Blend Verdigris embossing powder these graphic brushstrokes have an organic feel. 


This card comes together in a snap with Altenew Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set. I recommend loading it in a stamp positioner, such as a MISTI, so it can be stamped twice. However, if it doesn't stamp perfectly that's ok too.


WOW! Colour Blend Verdigris is a gorgeous mix of teal, green, black, and a bit of gold. The finish is a bit textured adding more interest to your projects. Check out the metallic shine and texture down below!


Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope to see your projects over at the Facebook fan page Monthly Challenge!

Underwater 5 Card Set with Jeannie

Hi crafty friends! My name is Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) and I’m back for my last post as a guest designer for Wow! Embossing Powder. It's been so much fun and exploring these incredible embossing powder colors. I wanted to create a card set for my last post to showcase a bunch of different colors. 



I'm using Trinity Stamps' 4 Bar Card Die Set to help me create this card set. I chose between the two largest dies in this set using a variety of shades of blue. Along with the die set, I used a couple of Trinity Stamps' stamp sets: Ocean Reef BuilderMermaid Wishes and Turtlely Awesome along with the stencils, Summer School. The stencil set comes with three different stencils and works so great for different backgrounds for all these different cards. For all the cards, I'm using WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad to stencil in the backgrounds. Let's go through each card:

CARD 1
I used the circular  Summer School Stencil along with Oasis embossing powder. I used the mermaid from Mermaid Wishes along with a sentiment. 

CARD 2
For this card, instead of stamping and coloring, I decided to stamp the jellyfish from the Ocean Reef Builder set on vellum using Opaque Bright White. Using the wave looking stencil, I heat embossed with Glassy Ocean

CARD 3:
I really wanted to use Sparkling Sand for sand, so I created a card showing the bottom of the ocean.  I swiped WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad at the bottom of the card and covered it in Sparkling Sand. I also used the little school of fish to add three schools with Space Dust. Once I added the octopus and little fishes from the Ocean Reef Builder set, it really brought it all together. 


CARD 4
I was inspired to recreate the Australian current from Finding Nemo, so I used the fish stream stencil along with Blue Moon embossing powder. Adding the turtles, from the Turtlely Awesome set, really made me happy because it was exactly what I imagined. 



CARD 5
When I completed the turtle card, I wanted to do the same thing with the dolphins. I used Oiled Slate for this one along with the dolphins from Ocean Reef Builder



I worked in an assembly line fashion to create these cards and they came together very quickly. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
