5 cards in 5 days with WOW | Masking Technique

Hello there!

 It Is Ola and I am back with my final card for my series of   ”5 cards in 5 days with WOW ”.  Today I am going to show you how to create a floral card using Masking Technique.

For this cardmaking tutorial you will need:  White Card blank  White cardstock  Gold pearlescent card  WOW Embossing pad  Heat tool  Embossing powders  Floral stamp set

I have started this card by stamping and fussy cutting the  flowers of a scrap piece of paper to create a mask.  Masking technique is used to create illusion that one object is behind the other. I will be creating vision that one of the flower is behind other, as well as my leaves will be behind my bouquet.  Let me show you!

I have stamped large flower on the top left corer of white cardstock with WOW clear embossing pad and gently covered with mask. Then I have stamped smaller flower on top of my mask shifting slightly to the right. When I remove my mask it looks like the smaller flower is hidden behind larger flower.  Lets repeat all steps on other side of cardstock.  When all flowers are stamped and embossed , time to stamp the leaves.  I have covered both large and small flower with mask and stamped my leaves in the way that some of them are stamped directly on the mask and some not. When I removed all the masking I have created illusion that leaves are behind the flowers.  Now is the time to add sentiment and assemble my card. I have used Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp and stamped using black versa mark ink.  I have mounted a piece of gold pearlescent card onto card blank before adding my top panel.  To finish my card I have added pink gemstones in the center of all flower and here we have floral card using Masking Technique.

I do hope you enjoyed this series of 5 card made in 5 days with WOW and get inspired to created beautiful cards yourself!

5 cards in 5 days| Emboss and colour in on vellum

Hi Guys!

 I am back with card number four for my ” 5 cards in 5 days with WOW” series of cards.  Today I am going to show you ”Emboss and colour in on Vellum” technique.

You will need :  White Card blank  White cards stock  Patterned paper  Vellum  Floral Stamp set  Copic or any other markers

So lets get started by stamping the floral stamp on a 10 x 14 cm white card stock piece in the top right corner.

I have used ”Tonic Studio” Flourish stamp set and Ebony Black embossing powder.   I have trimmed a vertical strip out of embossed cardstock in the way that part of the leaves are hanging out.  For my next step I have used patterned paper to replace the strip of cardstock which I have just cut off.  Then I have stamped same stamp on a vellum using Embossing pad and heat emboss with Clear Matt Dull embossing powder.  Using circle cutting dies, I have die cut my flower which I have stamped on the vellum and on the reversed side I have used Copic Markers to colour it.  Now lets assemble the card by gently gluing the vellum on the same stamped and embossed image but on the cardstock and here we have an outline.   For my sentiment I have dies cut 3 pieces of ”Thanks ” sentiment by Pink and Main and glued them together to create bit of dimension , but first I have embossed one of them with Gloss Embossing Powder to add bit of shimmer.  I have finished my card by adding few enamel dots.

I hope you get inspired to try this quick and easy technique and please do come back for more inspirations.

Have a great day!

5 cards in 5 days| ”Double Embossing” technique

Hello my crafty Friends!

Thank you for stopping by and today is day three for my   ”5 cards in 5 days with WOW” video tutorials.

During today’s tutorial I am going to show you technique which I call ”Double Embossing”.

To make this card you will need:

White card blank     White card stock     Embossing folder     Embossing pen     Embossing powders    Vellum

I have started my card by embossing a piece of white card stock with floral embossing folder. This is my first embossing for this card and it is called dry embossing.    For the next step you can use an embossing pad and create full covering look , such as card I have made below

or embossing pen and cover only raised parts of dry embossed piece.

TIP: You must be very patient and precise in order to achieve best possible result. Remember to do all the leaves before repeating your steps with a flowers.

For my sentiment I have use Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp and stamped using Staz On black ink on heat resisted vellum.

To add shimmer to my sentiment I have used Green Grass clear embossing powder.      To mount my sentiment to a card I have creased edges of vellum and secured at the back of my embossed piece. Then I added my creation to the card blank.     Here we have ”Double Embossed” technique card.

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for card number four.

Happy crafting everybody!

5 cards in 5 days| Emboss resist technique

Hello again

 It is Ola here and I am back with card number two in my series of   ”5 cards in 5 days with WOW” floral cards.  In today’s video tutorial I will show you the emboss resist technique with distress ink. This is very popular and well known technique by many papercrafters, but if you newbie and want to learn something new lets get started.

 

To make this card you will need:

Card blank    White card stock    Background stamp    Clear , white or any neutral colour embossing powder    Heat tool    Distress ink    Flower and leaf die    Ribbon

I have started my card by stamping my background stamp on white card stock piece. I am using WOW ”Secret Garden” background stamp and Clear Matt Dull embossing powder. After I set heated my stamped image its look very blank and not so visible, but after using distress ink,  magic happens!  Embossed parts will resist distress ink and will remain clear or white depend on the colour of embossing powder you previously have used.

Now my background, to finished I am going to trim this piece slightly smaller than standard card and mount this piece using 3D foam pad.  I have used 10mm double sating ribbon across my card and glued die cut sentiment directly on my ribbon.

To finish my card I have die cut 3 flowers out of burgundy card stock and added to my card using foam pad. Adding die cut leaf and enamel dots in the centers of the flowers will finish my card for today.

I hope you liked it and get inspired.  Please come back tomorrow for more ideas on how you use WOW embossing powders!

5 card in 5 days | Colour in with WOW embossing

Hello guys!

 It’s Ola here and in the next five days I’m going to show you five cards made in five days for WOW embossing powders.  This months challenge is all about flowers, so, for my next five card and video tutorials, I will be using WOW products to create floral theme cards only .

So let’s get started !  For my first card, I have decided to create a card with technique that I call ”Colour in with WOW”. Yes, that is correct. I will be using a WOW embossing pen to colour in my stamped image.

 

In order to create this card you will need an embossing pen and pad, embossing powder and floral stamp.

the step number one I die cut rectangular scalloped edge frame and covered edges with masking tape. I done this in order to created  background only in the center of my die cut piece.  I have used script stamp from ”Wall Art” stamp set by WOW embossing. I have stamped and embossed my script text with Gold Rich embossing powder and moved to the next step is to create flower and leaf.  For my flower and leaf I have selected stamps from the latest Craft Magazine and stamped with Ultra Slow drying embossing pad and emboss with the Ebony black embossing powder.

I have used WOW embossing pen and brush stroke movements to colour in edges and centers of the leaf and the flower. Then I have used Primary Yellow Regular embossing powder for the flowers and Metalline Green for the leaf and heat set it with WOW heat tool.  I have mounted the embossed rectangular piece onto card blank and die cut sentiment ”With Love ” using black card stock.  I have added  flower and leaf onto my card using 3D foam to create some dimension and the card is finished.
