With these amazing products I have the pleasure to create today’s cards. If you are coming from Yana Smakula you had a great impression, she made an amazing creation. I created my card using the Altenew Stamp Set Sketchy Cities America 2, it is a scenery of Seattle and I love to stamp this in black and in different colors. Let me show why.
I inked the image Sketchy Cities America 2 using different neon colors of pigment ink, I used all the colors at the same time. I stamped the image over a piece of Whisper White card stock and immediately covered it with WOW Embossing Powder Clear Gloss Super Fine. Then over another piece of Whisper White card stock, I stamped the same image, using VersaFine Onix and I covered this image with WOW Clear Embossing Powder Clear Gloss Regular. After these two steps, I melted the powder using the WOW Heat Tool.
Using the MISTI, I got to stamp the image always in the same place over the two pieces of card stock. I aligned these pieces and I cut the word hello using a die cut. Also, I cut the word in fun foam because my intention was create the hidden die cut technique using the two colors of the embossing with a special dimension.
Before pasting this layer over the Basic Black card base, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using WOW Embossing Pad and Opaque Primary Frozen Regular.
But wait a minute, Do you want to know what I made with the left over pieces? I created a second card with a different design.
The process was literally the same, I only added two elements. A tiny border that I created using a little piece of Coastal Cabana card stock that I inked with WOW Embossing Pad and then covered with WOW Embossing Powder Metallic Cooper and melted with the heat tool. And a sentiment from the stamp set Mr. Wow’s Wonderful Words that I stamped over a little piece of Basic Black card stock with WOW Embossing Pad and Opaque Bright White Regular and pasted on top of the image.
