Statement Flowers

Hello friends…its Michelle here from and I am so excited to share my first post as a member of the WOW! Embossing design team! This is such an incredible and very talented team and I am so honoured to be a part of it! Today I am sharing a card that uses an easy and bold way to add colour to your flowers without getting out all of your markers and pencils. Lets get started, shall we!

I started by diecutting my floral background piece 2x and set them aside from a piece of the WOW! Superior Smooth White cardstock. For my flowers I decided to use the WOW! Trio Independent Embossing Powder to add some easy and bold colour to my flowers and used the embossing powders as my colouring medium. I used the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Ink Pad and smooshed my cardstock onto it and added my first layer of each of the powders separately. I separated the sheet of cardstock into thirds, as I didn`t need to emboss an entire 8×11 sheet. Once each colour was cool to the touch I repeated this process with the ink pad and powders and added a second layer. By adding this second layer of embossing powder, it ensures you get a nice smooth and glossy finish.

Once the heat embossing was done, I die cut each panel to get my flower petals. For the leaves I wanted a softer look, so as to keep the focus on my flowers, so I did some simple ink blending. For this I did the reverse and die cut first and then ink blended the leaves. I then adhered my 2 background panels toegther and added it to my cardbase. Each petal and flower was then added using some liquid adhesive. For the sentiment I heat embossed the hello using the Blue Skies embossing powder and while it was still warm I sprinkled on some of the Wheatfields embossing powder, both from the same trio used for the flowers. I made sure to keep my heat tool moving around and not to overheat the hello, as I didn`t want to disturb the blue powder. It almost matches the United Embossing Glitter in the trio, but without the sparkle. I added the sentiments to my floral background and that was it.

I hope that you have enjoyed my first post and that it helps to inspire you in some way. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you find some time to sit down and create something magical with WOW! I wish you all the most wonderful and crafty day and until next time,

Hello… name is Michelle and I’m a Canadian girl living in the beautiful countryside of Switzerland with my Swiss husband and 2 cats. I love all things crafty, shiny and glittery! Besides my love for papercrafting, I also enjoy crocheting and making felt flowers.

My papercrafting journey began about 20 years ago when I walked into my little local stamp and scrapbooking store to make a scrapbook album for my parents’ 20th wedding anniversary. I eventually moved on to cardmaking and haven’t looked back since.

      Thank you so very much Aileen! The blue powder is actually part of the Trio Independent and it is called Blue Skies. It is really a beautiful shade of blue! The floral diecut background is from PinkFresh Studio.
