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:
White card stock
Clear , white or any neutral colour embossing powder
Flower and leaf die
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.

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.

This is my inspirational card for this month Facebook Fan page Challenge by @wowembossing .

For this month Fan page challenge as well as my monthly blog post I have created cards with WOW embossing foils.
During the video tutorial I will show you how to create your own pearlescent card if you don’t have any.
You can die cut a scalloped edge rectangular piece and heat emboss it using Wows new range of embossing powders called Glintz.
In my case I have used Rose Gold Glintz Embossing powder and the result is stunning.
For step number two I have used a floral stamp and stamped it across my card.
Next I have used a Wow bonding powder and set heated in the same way as any regular embossing powder, but making sure that I have applied foil while the bonding powder is still warm.
Remember to leave it till it is completely cool down before peeling the foil off and of we go!
Finally, I am going to assemble my card. For this particular card I have decided to replace the card blank with vellum blank (card blank made out of vellum). I have also pre die cut three scalloped edge rectangular pieces to mount inside. I also did this to the back of the vellum to cover all the imperfections and make a space for your inside message.
And here we have Vellum card with Rose Gold foil flowers.

Today I would like to show you how to make a clean and simple card using Floral Stamp and WOW ”Born to Sparkle” stamp set. Also , I will show you how to add gorgeous WOW Sparkles to make your card sparkle.
Here it is:
As you can see it is not a very complicated card, but a simple card with WOW factor. So let me tell you how I have made my flower sparkle.
I started my card by stamping the flower onto red / pink cardstock piece. When it was done, I cleaned my stamp and stamped my flower over with clear embossing pad. Now is the time to make the glitter mixture. Using 1:1 ratio I mixed bonding powder with glitter and sprinkled it over my stamped image. I heated it from under the cardstock to ensure that the glitter is not blown away. For my next step, I fuzzy cut my flower and moved to the next step. I have used my stamping platform to add the sentiment ”Have the Sparkliest Birthday ever!” next to my flower. Then I stamped my stamp ,using a black ink pad, onto a white cardstock piece which I previously die cut into a rectangular shape with two rounded corners.
I coloured in the leaves using Copic Markers and mount my fuzzy cut flower on top of the stamped image using 3D foam pad.
I added coloured cardstock to the back of my top panel before mounting onto the card blank and finally, added enamel dots.

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to come back to see more inspirations from other WOW DT members.
Today I had so much fun combining colour combinations that are less expected. Such as pink and blue, blue and light brown,lilac and olive.
My favorite card was made using pink cardstock , @tonicstudios flourish stamp and Hugs stamp and die set. Obviously Metalline Dark Blue @wowembossing powder is very important component to achieve stunning result!!
Simple card made by combining pink and blue colour, therefore I can say for sure We can combine colour combinations that are less expected.
To add interest and dimension o my card, I have stamped same flower onto two pieces of pink cardstock. Then, I have used shaped die to die cut one of the pieces and mount onto second piece in the way that remaining part of the stamped image is revealed.
