VIDEO: Foliage Frenzy with Erica!

Hi guys! 

It’s Erica back on the blog and YouTube channel today with a couple of cards using the newest release from WOW! Embossing. It’s the Foliage Background stamps by Verity that are the stars of these cards for sure. 


I started by dabbing my Inkon3 ink pads, in Bee Sting Yellow, Goddess Green and Trinity Teal on the Foliage Background Bold stamp. I used my MISTI for this, as I didn’t think I’d get a good impression the first time due to the overlapping colours. 


This panel I treated with my anti-static tool as I wanted to heat emboss the Foliage Background Outline stamp on top, in gold of course. 

I lined the stamp up in my MISTI and stamped it with the Embossing Pad and then sprinkled the Rich Gold on top, and set it with the heat tool. 

This gave me an idea, so I inkblended the same colours Bee Sting Yellow, Goddess Green, Trinity Teal and also a little Peacock Blue on another panel. This I dried with the heat tool before using the anti-static tool all over it. Then I stamped the same Foliage Background Outline stamp with the Embossing Pad and used Opaque Bright White Super Fine for this one. There was an internal struggle to not use the Rich Gold again, because I love it. 


They are both lovely, if I may say so myself! 

To finish these off, I got a couple of white card bases out, trimmed the backgrounds down a little, and decided to add a black and a dark grey backing piece to each. They just needed a little something to frame them, I thought. 

Next up was sentiment: I heat embossed ‘Sending you a hug!’ in Bright White Opaque super fine on black card stock, and trimmed them down. This is from the Thank You Sentiments, and you can get a BUNDLE of four super versatile sets as well as individual sets. 


A quick glue and tape runner job later, the cards were done! I still might add a few sequins before sending them out but for now they are done. 

That’s it from me for today, thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to stop by the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel to check out the video too. 


Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

  1. Two beautiful cards featuring the pretty silhouette and outline leaf stamps and love the colours you have used Erica and pretty added gold embossed outlines and then the white embossed outline leaves on the wonderful ink blended background using the same super colours. x
