Floral Inspiration


Good morning everyone, I hope you're all enjoying the summer! I wanted to share a summery card today which is my inspiration for this month's floral challenge. I started by using the Tropical Stamp down the left hand side of white card which I embossed with Opaque Bright White powder. I then gently applied distress ink over the top with a dabber to reveal the pattern.


For the 3D flowers I used the Secret Garden stamp which a embossed with Blueberry Cheesecake Embossing Powder. I then cut out individual flowers, shaped with my fingers and added pretty gems in the centres.


The sentiment is from the Just Saying stamp set which I've embossed with my favourite colour at the moment, British Summer.

I hope this has given you a few ideas, there's still two days to join in the challenge, why not have a go? I can't wait to see what you make.

Have a great day!

Because We All Need to Bloom: Art Journal Page

Hi everyone! It's Fran here today with your dose of WOW! inspiration. I decided to try out the new Hey Little Flower and Just Saying stamps combining them into an art journal page



Firstly I applied a layer of clear gesso to my page to protect the pages then once this was dry I added paint and watercolor ink for my colour base. Into the wet paint and ink I added pinches of Silver Stratosphere and Blueberry Cheesecake embossing powders which I heated to melt.




Once happy with the arrangement I stamped various flowers from the Hey Little Flower stamp set around the pages with black ink and WOW's clear slow drying ink pad. I sprinkled Metallic Copper and Pink Lady over the wet ink and set with a heat tool.


I filled some of the petals with a chalk pen and some with WOW's clear embossing pen, which enable me to add embossing powder into those fiddly areas!  


 I finished off with some more stamping from the Just Saying set, doodles and journal scribbles.

 I hope you will be inspired to try using your WOW stamps and powders for something a little different like journalling and don't forget to join in this month's challenge!


Warm hugs,

HELLO LITTLE FLOWERS

Hello crafty friends, It's Martha Lucia and it's my turn to share with you! I hope you are enjoying our projects this month using flowers because this is my favorite theme - I love flowers and the Hey Little Flowers stamp set is one of my favorites right now. Take a look at my card:

HELLO LITTLE FLOWERS

I started by stamping the background with lineal flowers included on the stamp set Hey Little Flower using WOW Embossing Pad and then heat embossed it with WOW Clear Gloss Regular Embossing Powder. Next, I tied on some natural thread cord and then built the rest of the card from there. I wanted to use the new colors of WOW Embossing Powders and I decided to use Strawberry Sundae, Mind Macaroon and Banana Split to stamp each flower ... delicious, right???

HELLO LITTLE FLOWERS

First I stamped each flower using WOW Embossing Pad and then heat embossed these with these three different colors of WOW Regular Embossing Powder, all inspired by Marion Emberson as well as both stamp sets that I used, the Hey Little Flower and the Just Saying, because the word Hello is part of this.

I die cut the leaves from Old olive card stock and I separated the leaves from the original die cut to arrange these around the flowers. The sentiment is from the stamp set Just Saying. This is a very versatile set. I stamped it over a little piece of very vanilla card stock with WOW Embossing Pad and heat embossed this with Primary Ebony WOW Embossing Powder, and I used the Circle Layer Framelits to cut various layers of card stock. Then it was a matter of assembling everything. 

I hope my project inspires you to create, use your WOW Embossing Powders and try the new colors - they are simply gorgeous and perfect for this season.

See you soon!

Altered lantern from a piece of paper!

Hello, crafty friends!
It is Victoria on the blog today. Our August theme is "Flowers" and I absolutely love it: I use flowers in almost every project. And I've prepared something really cool. This lantern I created from scratch and embellished with my handmade flowers. I will give you the instructions below.
1. I cut 8 a2 paper frames and 8 borders, using my die-cutting machine, two pieces 12*12 cm of paper for the top and the bottom and two pieces 10.5*10.5 cm of 2 mm thick cardboard. Also I cut four 1,5*13 cm paper strips and scored them in half in length and folded. Then I glued the frames to the folded strips (1st frame-paper strip-2nd frame, so you get rather firm and steady construction), that way I formed rectangular base for the lantern.

Bookmark


Hello, this is Laurence today to show you a bookmark. You have certainly seen on the Hey little flower stamp sheet that the flowers perfectly coordinate with each other. I first started to stamp the solid flower using a  chalk inkpad in two different colors. Chalk inkpads is drying very quickly and you do not need to wait. I used the second stamp that outlines the same flowers and heat embossed it with WOW Primary Bluetiful. The sentiment is heat embossed with WOW Opaque Vanilla white and glued on my background.
 
Do you know that you may also create your own embellishments with your stamps… I used shrink plastic and stamped the same flower with blue ink. Cut out and punch a hole in the middle. Remember that the hole will also shrink and make your hole big enough to pass your twine. Heat up the plastic with your heat tool until it starts to wrinkle and shrink. When it stops wrinkling use an acrylic block and put pressure on the image to flatten it.


I can't wait to see what you create for this month challenge.

Mixed Media Flower Tag by Susanne

 

Hi everyone!

Susanne writing today and I'd like to share a mixed media flower tag with you. I used the brand new "Hey Little Flower" and "Just Saying" stamp sets. The base of my tag was some embossed white cardstock from DCWV. I painted it with black gesso and highlighted the embossing with "Strawberry Sundae" colour blend powder. I really enjoyed the awesome look, the new colour blends have on black. It looks silver with some awesome shading, depending on the colour you pick. I used the same powder on the solid flower. The other images are embossed with Black Glint powder! I picked a scrap from my gelli prints as my background.




I hope you like my tag. Thanks for stopping by today. See you soon,
xx Susanne.
