VIDEO | Sparkle & Shine | Spring Card


Hej Everyone! Martina here with another "sparkle&shine" video.

I am still in a creative overflow after watching some snipplets from Marions "Embossed Pouncing Technique" video (I will link to her Video at the end of this post!)

As spring is getting in full swing over here, I have been thinking I could give her technique another try and incooperate it into a spring card.

You can watch the full video here on the WOW Embossing Youtube Channel.

I have been using Marions technique on a piece of cardstock using: Made you Blush, Firey Fun, Rose Quartz, Lemon Amber and Wheatfields. 

To me, personally, the Opaque (o) and Opaque Marbling (om) powders are the ones that get the best results with this technique.

To get some less busy surfaces, I have also been heat embossing a piece of cardstock with Lemon Amber, Firey Fun and one with Made you Blush.

I have been cutting the A Pocket full of Happiness "Spring Florals" from all heat embossed pieces and some leaves from white cardstock.

For the background, I have been using some Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder and a big background stamp from A Pocket Full of Happiness. This creates a nice resist to the colour I have been adding on top.

Then, I have been glueing all flowers and leaves to the background.

As a last detail, I have been stamping a Florilèges Design stamp with black ink and heate embossed ith with Clear Gloss. I usually add some heat embossing to my stamped sentiments. This just adds this tiny little "extra".

 
And this is todays card.I hope you liked it and feel inspired!
 
Have a great day!

CARD MAKERS DELIGHT: Faux Alcohol Ink Look THANK YOU Card

Hello lovely crafty friends, hope you are well. It’s Sasha here with card makers delight. So for todays card I thought we would do something relatively easy and quick to make but really allows our embossing powders to shine.





I started to make my background by using the WOW! Embossing mixed media brush to transfer ink onto a hard bristled brush then tapping it on my WOW! embossing cardstock until I have good ink coverage. (This YouTube tutorial shows you exactly what to do.) I then added my first layer of popping blue and pink from the Ashlee McGregor Party Popper trio, and heat embossed it. To get this colour burst effect, you will need to repeat the above steps in order to add a second layer of each embossing powder colour. As you heat emboss, allow the powders to move naturally and blend as they are marbling powders so they will blend and marble brilliantly!



Vellum is just so perfect for toning down busy backgrounds so I stamped my Butterfly stamp onto some vellum with the WOW! Slow drying embossing ink. I then added some metallic gold powder before heat embossing.  I am going to use the 2 extra wings to give our butterfly some extra dimension.



To finish up this card, I cut a gold frame out of some mirror card , added a black gold foiled Thank you  sentiment  and some Gold pearls. Then I stuck the whole panel onto a 5” x 7” card base and that’s the complete card. This card is relatively easy to make but hopefully it looks like it took a lot of time and skill  to make it! Hahaha




I hope you enjoy making this card and fall in love with the marbling embossing powders as much as I did! Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to share this post with someone you think might like it. Have a WOW! Inspired kind of day until the next card makers delight :)  

Sending you crafty inspiration, 
Sasha

Independent Trios - Mixed Media with Natasha

Hi crafty friends!  I am excited to be back today to share a mixed media card with you inspired by the beautiful new trio - Independent.  This new trio is truly special, all profits from the sale of this trio will be donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.  So let's get started!  

For today's card I was inspired by the beautiful color palette of the new trio - Independent.  I created several gelli print backgrounds to get started!  These are always so much fun to create and will be awesome to have on hand for future cards!  Once I was done printing I chose the one you see here in my card.  I love the colors and the textures within the print.  Next I dry embossed the background using a 3D embossing folder from Tim Holtz - called Typewriter.  Once it was dry embossed I added 2 colors of archival ink to several of the raised letters.  To add a bit more texture I added embossing powder in Caramel Vanilla. This is from the trio - It is Cold Outside.  I added embossing ink in various sections to add more interest and visual texture.  Once heat set, I set the background aside.    


Next I started to work on my butterfly die cuts.  I started by inking WOW Smooth card stock with 2 colors of Catherine Pooler Ink.  I used Dress Blue and Chiffon.  I added a bit of water as well to add more texture to the ink.  I then die cut the butterflies using the Tim Holtz dies - Detailed Butterflies.  I then heat embossed both the yellow and blue butterfly top layer die cut using both Disco Ball and the Independent Trio set. From the trio I specifically used Wheatfields and Blue Skies.  Once they were complete I decided I wanted to add more texture to the butterflies, so I heat embossed one more time using Caramel Vanilla embossing powder.  I then adhered each layer of the butterfly together using liquid glue.  



To complete the card I used the Sweet Sentiments foil sheets.  I had previously foiled these using WOW Fab Foil in Bright Gold. I trimmed my sentiment and applied foam tape to the back.  Next I adhered my background down to an A2 card base.  I then chose the placement for my butterflies and sentiment.  I adhered these with both liquid glue and foam tape.  


Thank you so much for stopping by!  I had so much fun on today's card!  I hope you like it!  I will be back soon with more inspiration!  

Crafty Hugs, 
Natasha
