VIDEO | Clean and Simple Ombré Slimline Card


Hej Everyone! It's Martina here today with a really easy, versatile idea for an ombré effect on your cards.



When tinking of (slimline) cards with an ombré effect, I usually get ideas of backgrounds. But why not creating a clean and simple card with embellishments in the ombré style? WOW has so many gorgeous powders that give so many beautiful options for this technique..

I have been working on a piece of cardstock that has been cut slightly smaller than my card base and will be glued onto the base as soon as I can start glueing my die cuts on.

To create something different in the background, I have been applying a Clear Matte Texture Paste through the WOW "Lots a Bubbles" Stencil. This gives a beautiful effect that reminds me of dry embossing.

For the butterflies I have heat embossed three pieces of white cardstock with Pink Tutu, Periwinkle and Sugared Almond before I die cut them.

Glueing the heat embossed butterflies to the solid bases and then adhering them to the card base are already the last finishing steps since I decides that this card doesn't need any additions.

That's it for today!

Thank you so much for watching!

FAB FOIL with Nicci Battilana

Are there some art supplies that you happily purchase, but then are hesitant to try?

I definitely do that at least once or twice a year.

I LOVE the look of shiny foil in my artwork, but have never been a fan of the old school, sticky and yes ... smelly, application process.


Did you know that WOW! has a bonding agent in powder form that does not smell or leave any sticky residue?

In today's video tutorial & blog post, I am trying my hand at an art supply that is new to me. 
FAB FOIL and WOW! Bonding Powder. 

I have used foils in the past, but have had to rely on the old sticky type of application, which can be frustrating to use in a journal. As even days later, your pages have a habit of sticking together. 
With using WOW!'s Bonding Powder, I now no longer need to worry about having sticky pages ;) and it looks DIVINE!







Please POP on over and watch the video on YouTube to see the steps I take to create this fun 2 page spread.

Thank you for taking the time. I hope that I inspired you and I look forward to seeing what you all create!  #fabfoil #wowembossing #wowembossingpowder

Ombre Earth Sparkles Die-cut sentiment (reels tutorial)



Hello, it's Verity with another Insta Reels and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! Today I'm getting creative and using Earth Sparkles to create an ombre die-cut sentiment. This is great inspiration for this month's Challenge of Ombre, so don't forget to enter over in the Facebook group or on Insta using #wowembossingchallenge. 

Ombre Earth Sparkles Die-cut sentiment written Tutorial:

Start off by adding Altenew Double-sided adhesive sheets a piece of white card. Next, using Julie Hickey Designs lower alphabet dies, cut out the word hello, making sure the adhesive sheet is on the front of the letters. 


Next, peel the adhesive back off the letter 'h' and cover it with Anenome Earth Sparkles. Also, cover half of the letter 'e' in this as well.  For the other half of the 'e' cover this with Sea Fan Earth Sparkles. Also, cover one 'L' and half of the other 'L' in Sea Fan too. 



For the last half of the second 'L' and 'O', cover this in Lobster Earth Sparkles. To create the background, stamp in Pink Champagne Catherine Pooler ink the Julie Hickey designs Daisy Garland stamp set onto white card. Trim this down and add to a white card base. 


Foam mount the die-cut sentiment onto the front of the panel. Next, stamp in Twilight Ink sentiment from the Happy Birthday Sentiments stamp set. Trim this down into a strip and add it to the card. Lastly, finish by embellishing with some colour corresponding sequins.
