Why not cut up a background? WOW! blog hop & giveaway!

The WOW! design team are showing casing lots of inspiration today with the most recent release that released on The Craft Channel in the UK at the end of April. We have two fun hops, one over YouTube and one on Instagram so you’re bound to find plenty of cards you like. For you my card over on YouTube I decided why not cut up a background and get more from your stamps! And I was in a rainbow mood!

However, if you love foils, then I have lots of inspiration today as part of the Instagram hop and creating with some of WOW’s! new stencils, some of which were design by me. To enter the giveaways, you need to head over to Instagram and YouTube, comment, and hop along! As part of the hop, there is a giveaway where you could win 1 of 2 $gift cards.

Add Your Heading Text Here

Start off by heat embossing the Fern Background stamp in gold embossing powder onto white card stock. Next, fussy cut out the different size ferns or use an electronic die-cutting machine that can scan and cut these out. 

why not cut up a background

Using a blending tool, add ink to each of the ferns, alternating the size as you go through the rainbow. The inks used here are:

For the background, apply embossing paste through the Lotsadots stencil onto a white slim-line card panel. Once dry add this to a Slim-line card base. Next from mount the ferns onto the front with different dimensions for added interest. 

Lastly, add a heat embossed sentiment from the Happy Birthday Sentiment stamp set in Metallic Gold Rich, trimming down into a thin strip. 

Fab foils and stencils!

For this card, I applied transfer gel through the Confetti Heart Stencil. Once dry, the panel was foiled with a Minc machine (you can use a laminator as well) using WOW! Blush Fab Foil.

The card was finished with a Catherine Pooler Love die-cut covered in Crystal Essential Sparkles and a stamped sentiment from the Love Sentiment stamp set

Lotsabubbles stencil

This is perfect for a masculine birthday card. The Lotsabubble stencil was foiled with WOW! Fab Foil Gold onto blue cardstock. The panel was added to a slim-line cardbase. To finish this off, an Altenew Happy die-cut was added along with a small heat embossed sentiment from the Happy Birthday Sentiments were added. 

Lotsadots stencil

For this card, I foiled the Lotsadots stencil with WOW! Fab Foil Rose gold. This was foiled onto a pale purple card base and complements the foil beautifully. The card was finished by added a strip of vellum beneath PinkFresh Studio Beautiful die-cut and stamped sentiments from the Love sentiments stamp set

Confetti Circle Stencil

The Confetti Circle Stencil was foiled onto black card with WOW! Fab Foil in silver. The Smile Blooms stamp and die set were used to decorate the front, create a mini wreath, and a sentiment from the Happy Birthday Sentiments set was added.

Confetti Hearts stencil

Believe it or not, the Confetti Heart Stencil was foiled with WOW! Fab Foil in Dark blue – it is just very hard to photo!! This was foiled onto a light grey card and sentiments from the Love sentiments stamp set were used to finish the card. The script sentiments fit inside the heart.
