With all my heart - a card by Riikka

Hello there and sweet day! It's Riikka here today with a heart shaped card. Love is in the air as Valentines Day closes in, but on the other hand, there's always a good day to spread some love! Don't you think that too? 
I have to confess something. Before my two girls I disliked pink. Even as a child I wanted to have the blue versions of everything as in my youth it seemed that everything came in either pink or blue. I can even remember having an argument with my mom about a jacket she was buying to me as she suggested this pale pink, like a cotton candy color and I insisted of having the jeans blue one. So yes, pink has never been my favorite. Even when my girls were small, they were rather clothed in blue than pink - and I heard quite a few times what lovely little boy I had. But when my older one turned three, everything changed. She insisted on having everything in pink and in glitter. So I just had to learn to live with it. And slowly I started first to endure pink …

My First Blog Post And A Textured Thank You.

Oh my goodness this is my first blog post as a member of the WOW team and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled to be here. It's very nerve-wracking to be delivering my first official post but at the same time I'm so very excited.
Let me introduce myself, I'm Jaine and I'm hoping to help inspire you with my own way of creating and my own style.
One thing I absolutely love in my work is texture. The inspiration for the background to this card  came when I was looking for a gift in a local flower shop and spotted a gorgeous embossed metal box with copper foiling over the embossing. The texture and shiny copper was gorgeous. It was quite distressed and not totally perfect which I also found beautiful. I held the image in my mind until I could try out something similar at home.



For the background to my card base I used texture paste and a stencil to create the raised design. Once that was dry I painted it over with two colours of acrylic paint blending them into one …

Thank You and Goodbye

Hello crafty friends, I hope you’re all getting prepared for Christmas and looking forward to the holidays. I’m a little sad today as this will be my final DT post for WOW. I have loved being part of the team for nearly two years but with various other things going on now seems the right time for me to step down. So here’s my final post for you all.....

To start this card I ran some double-sided tape down the right-hand side of some burgundy card then sprinkled Fireworks Sparkles on top.

I then used the Pink & Main Directional Borders stamp down the right-hand side of some white card and sprinkled a mixture of  Oasis and Avocado Regular Powder on top before melting with a heat tool. I then used the matching Pink & Main Directional Borders Die over the stamped image then added a little ink over the design.

I used the Big Words Stamp with Bark Powder for the sentiment then layered the glittered and stamped card onto my card base. I then die-cut three feathers and triple embosse…

Glitter, Shine and Metallic .........with Pink & Main

Hi All, Jo here and welcome to today's blog post.
This month the Design Team have had the pleasure on working on projects to collab with the Pink & Main products now available in the WOW store.







The cards I have made is simple yet striking as the embossing powders I have used both metallic and glitter mix speak for themselves. 
I'm hoping that you can see in these cards the effectiveness yet simplicity of this simple card layout doesn't need to be over complicated at all.
The background stampset I have used is the WOW's "POP" background.
For the sentiment I have used the versatile "Congrats" stamp and coordinating die from Pink & Main.  This fabulous stampset and die can also be layered as it has the detailed script of the word as well as the out layer of the sentiment.
I have created a video show casing these embossing powders and stamps. 




Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed today's card creations.
Hugs Jo




Light - a layout by Riikka

Hi there and happy December! It's the middle of the winter and I'm sharing a layout with flowers with you... maybe a bit off the season, but the inspiration for the blooms came from the cute bear stamp by Pink and Main which I used as an embellishment in my page. And maybe it's good to think about the summer, blooms and warm weather when it's dark and gloomy outside! 

The page is about light, more specifically light at the end of the tunnel. It's quite the same with winter, in a way. Through the rough patch and into the light! And as it's almost Holiday season, I didn't want to do and show anything too heavy or hard, just something light and nice to do between chores of getting ready for Christmas!
As always, I took step by step photos along the way when working with the layout. Underneath you can see how the page came together! 

Step 1. Start by making a resist to the background. I stamped some text in there using two stamp sets, "Big Words" and…
