Floral Card with WOW Clear Embossing and Studio Katia (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there! How are you doing today?

Just in case you need some craft inspiration to take your mind off the fact that it’s Monday … ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a lovely floral card to show you! And it’s part of a collaboration blog hop between WOW Embossing and Studio Katia so there is plenty of wonderful cards along the hop as well as some prizes to win! Isn’t that a great start to this week!

MY FLORAL CARD WITH NO LINE COLORING

I have a floral card for you that I made with one of the beauuutiful flower images from Studio Katia’s “You’re So Sweet” stamp set. They seemed perfect for coloring with colored pencils and that is what I did – using a no line coloring method. I stamped the image with a very light dye ink that isn’t visible anymore now that I added my coloring.

I used a mixture of Caran d’Ache – Luminance Pencils and Chameleon – Color Tones Pencils. The brands are a bit different to work with and also when it comes to their prize point but I honestly like them both! You can get great results with both kind of pencils, I think!

For my background I stamped the Studio Katia “Mandala Flower” in a light mint ink and used the same ink for ink blending from the bottom of my panel. I added splatters with green ink to match the leaves from my flower image. A few of the gorgeous blue crystal embellishments picked up the color of my blossom coloring.

HEAT EMBOSSING IN CLEAR

While I chose a simple black color for my sentiment (to add a bit of contrast to the background) I heat embossed it with WOW clear embossing powder. I really find that using that glossy embossing powder on a sentiment adds just that bit of extra to a card design! Black embossing powder can get a bit messy but by choosing a black pigment ink like Versafine and WOW’s “Clear Gloss Super Fine” embossing powder I got a perfectly embossed sentiment. Here’s a close-up look of the card:

“Hootiful” Cards with Heffy Doodle Owls (Blog Hop & Giveaway)

Hi there and welcome!

Today I am very excited to be part of the Heffy Doodle Blog Hop celebrating their new, 5th release!

Heffy Doodle Blog HopGraphic

I made two cards with the super cute owls from the “Hootiful” stamp set and also used their new double (inside and outside the cutting line) stitched rectangle dies to create sort of a window frame for my basic scenes.

The rectangle dies from Heffy Doodle that I am using are also in EU size! The largest cut stitched rectangle fully covers an A6 (EU standard size) card front. Therefore it measures approximately 10,5 x 14,8 cm. I have not seen a rectangle die like this before, very useful for us European crafters! ๐Ÿ˜€

MY “HOOTIFUL” BIRTHDAY CARD

For my first card I used the UnbeLEAFable stencil together with some acrylic paste and Distress Ink for the background as well as the Happy die for my sentiment. The owls are stamped, colored with Copics and die cut with the coordinating dies.

SECOND CARD: OWLS & LUCKY STARS

For my second card I used the new Starfall stencil over dark blue cardstock. Then I added the moon and some extra stars from the Hootiful stamp set and heat embossed them in gold. The moon and heart are also filled with a hint of glitter from a Wink Of Stella pen. I used a bit of masking paper to place two owls next to each other on the branch making it look as if one is hugging the other (at least that’s what I was going for lol). Then I fussy cut around the masked images with my Cutter Bee scissors.
