Foil Cards with WOW! & MFT Stamps

Hello!

I’m back with my second blog post as guest designer for WOW! this month! And I have to admit something … Up to this point I did never ever try out foiling! Yeees, I knoooow, hard to believe but it’s true! πŸ˜‰ So of course when I got my hands on WOW!’s Fab Foil I couldn’t wait to finally try it out. And the best thing for me: with their Bonding Powder you do not have to have a foiling machine or laminator do to foiling. Just a stamped image will work together with this powder and your regular tools for heat embossing!

TAKE A LOOK AT THE GORGEOUS FOILED MFT FLOWERS:

And here’s both cards that I made using the same color scheme (gold, green and kraft) but with different colors of WOW! foils and embossing powders as well as stamps and dies from MFT Stamps:

You’ll find a photo tutorial from me on how to use WOW!’s “Fab Foil” with their Bonding Powder on WOW!’s blog today! I hope you will hop over and have a look!

Have an amazing day! β™₯

Lawn Fawn Critter Concert with Distress Oxides – 2 Ways

Hello!

Today I am back on The Foiled Fox’s blog with a guest post and I have two cards to show using Lawn Fawn’s adorable Critter Concert stamps and dies from their summer 2018 release. I was curious on how Distress Oxide Inks work for watercoloring – I have never really tried them out for this technique yet. I usually use them for ink blending, which works like a charme and has become my go-to because of that! So today I am comparing two ways to do emboss resist: watercoloring & ink blending, both with the same colors of Distress Oxide Inks.

Honey Bee Zen Bouquet with WOW Embossing Rose Glintz (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hello and welcome to my blog!!

As some of you might already know, I am guest designer for WOW Embossing this month and today I am joining the WOW Design Team for a collaboration blog hop with Honey Bee Stamps! Yay! As I am also a DT Alumni of Honey Bee Stamps I am especially happy to be part of the blog hop with them today. πŸ™‚

SIMPLE CARDS WITH HEAT EMBOSSING

Ever since I got the Rose Glintz Embossing Powder from WOW and made a swatch with it I couldn’t wait to use it on a card. It has such a wonderful rose gold color and beautiful shine when the light catches it! And I already had the perfect image in mind to use with it – HoneyBee Stamps’ Zen Bouquet! I have seen photos of it being used on cards with just stamping (no coloring) and it looked gorgeous! So I thought heat embossing without coloring would definetely work as well and I have to say, I really like how it came out! In fact, I liked it so much that I couldn’t stop experimenting and creating and ended up making a whole bunch of cards! Take a look yourself:

I started with heat embossing the Zen Bouquet in Rose Glintz on colored cardstock and had a specific look in mind – but I had forgotten that this embossing powder is not entirely opaque. WOW has a line of opaque powders as well, but this is not one of them – my bad. πŸ˜‰ So, for example on the teal cardstock the Rose Glintz ended up looking a bit darker and less rose than I thought. I still liked the look and beautiful metallic shine of the powder on the colored cardstocks but nonetheless I went ahead and embossed the Zen Bouquet again on Neenah solar white cardstock for that rose gold tone. Since the bouquet is a reeeally big image I could get two card panels out of one round of stamping & heat embossing and ended up with a couple of background pieces for cards after all!

To put my cards together I used several different Honey Bee Stamps sentiment dies (you’ll find a full list of supplies down below). For the kindness-themed cards I heat embossed the kind / kindness die cuts with WOW Metalline Greengage (soft green) and Metalline Himalayan Musk (dark violet) embossing powders. I pressed the Embossing Ink Pad directly onto the die cut pieces and picked them up with my tweezers to then heat emboss them.

The only card where I felt like it needed some coloring was the lilac one. I wanted to tie in the white from the cardbase so that the heat embossed image wouldn’t get lost. Therefore I took my white Luminance Colored Pencil and added a few highlights to the flower bouquet.
