JW Illustrations + WOW Embossing + Momenta = Amazing!

12 Mar

I have a new card to share with you with and added technique.

I want to shoe you how I took a digital stamp and used multiple embossing powders to create a One of a Kind card.

I used the Digital Stamp from Jessica Weible Illustraions called HOT AIR BALLOON

What I did first was to print the image out multiple times and used an embossing pen to lay done the embossing ink and then embossed the Hot Air Balloon in the following colors.  I am using all WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS from the line called Candy Counter Collection.

After I embossed all the colors, I carefully cut each one out and pieced the Hot Air Balloon back together.

Because I am lucky enough to work with Momenta on their D-Lite team, I had some paper and products that matched my balloon perfectly.

The papers I used are from this 5 x 7 Cardstock Pad and stickers from their Kaleidoscope line.

Isn’t this just a bright and cherry card?

Strawberry Lovers Card

6 Feb

Hello all..I have a fun little card to share today.

This is using a digi stamp from Jessica Weible Illustrations called Strawberry Girl.

You can find the digital stamp here.

What I did to make this card unique is that I took the digital stamp of the strawberry on the girl’s shirt and used it as a template to make the strawberry out of polymer clay.

After the strawberry was done cooking, I adhered a bail to the back of it and turned it into a necklace.  I poked a hole in the card front and had the strawberry line up on the shirt where the stamp is.

What little girl wouldn’t be excited about a card like this?

If you have not been over to Jessica Weible’s site and had a look at all her fun digital images, you are really missing out!

I hope you have enjoyed this card, it was a lot of fun to make!

I am off to create more things!  Hope you have a great day and a wonderful week!

What do creative minds do on rainy days??

As my title asks, what do creative minds do on rainy days?

Do we cook? NO!!

Do we clean house? NO!

Do we catch up on laundry?  HECK NO!

We …..  CREATE!

It is a rainy, I am so happy to say that, we need it so badly.

Today I am going to show you a card I have made for JW Illustrations.
