Fab Foil Backgrounds

Hi Crafty Friends!  I am excited to be back up on the WOW Embossing Blog today!  Today's card is all about shine and texture using WOW Fab Foil!  I love to be inspired and learn from my crafty friends!  I learned this technique from my fellow Design Team member - Dunja!  Here is my take!  

I started by choosing a pre-made gelli print background from my stash!  I love using backgrounds I have on hand and also enjoy making them!  Next I stamped the images on my gelli print background (butterflies and date stamp).  I stamped these using versafine clair ink.  I allowed these to dry before moving on.  

Once my stamped images were dry I started to work with the WOW fab foil!  This stuff is amazing and truly easy to use.  I started with my stencil.  I added paste over the stencil and once applied I sprinkled the wet paste with WOW Bonding powder.  I then heat set this with my WOW heat tool.  I knew it was ready when it had that "shiny" tone.  I then placed the gold foil over the top, shiny side up and rubbed the foil with my fingers.  I removed the foil and I had a shiny stenciled image!  Truly so cool and easy!  

Next I used the WOW Pasta Rings stencil over the background using white acrylic paint with a sponge dauber. I wanted to add a bit more dimension.  So I die cut several leaf images and glued them together for added dimension.  Next I chose a sentiment die from my stash.  I die cut the shadow layer and the top layer.  I die cut the top layer 3 times and adhered them together.  Next I added WOW Embossing Powder in the color Caramel Vanilla to the die cut sentiment.  Once heat set, I adhered this to my shadow layer.  

To complete my card I adhered the leaves using both liquid and foam tape.  Next I adhered my sentiment.  Once these were on, I decided to die cut 2 butterflies to add a bit more dimension.  

I truly had fun with today's card and loved foiling using paste and bonding powder!  I hope you give this a try!  


Thank you for stopping by today!  Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!

Easy Sparkle Christmas card


Hello, it's Verity with another blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! This is a really quick and easy card to make, so if you still need to make a last-minute card, then these can be whipped up in a jiffy. I used the beautiful Copper Fire Sparkles for this card, but you could choose any colour in the Sparkles range and they would work just as well! So let's get started. 

Easy Sparkle Christmas cardwritten Tutorial:


Cover a piece of white card with a piece of double-sided adhesive sheet. Next, remove the adhesive backing sheet to expose the adhesive. 


Cover the card panel in WOW! Copper Fire Sparkles and burnish this down into the adhesive. Next, run this through your die-cutting machine with using dies from the Lea's Ornate Lowercase alphabet dies from PinkFresh Studio to spell out 'Merry'. 

To create the background, place the Snowflake stencil mask over a card base and ink blend Mint To Be and It's A Boy ink over the top. Reposition the mask and repeat to create a full background. 


Assemble the card by foam mounting the die-cut letters onto the card front and adding a heat emboss 'Christmas' from the Merry Sentiment set in a Copper embossing folder. Lastly, embellish with Moonstone drops.

With the Lea's Ornate Lowercase alphabet dies, it die-cuts the letter twice at the same time, one a thin frame. I used these thin frames to create a really easy elegant CAS card. 


Adhere the thin frame glitter letters to a card panel with liquid adhesive. Add white embossed sentiment on the top to finish the sentiment off. 


Lastly, embellish with black sequins for a classy modern card.
