Craftie Cafe: Taylored Expression Flowers Stamp with WOW Embossing


Hi All, welcome to another fun blog post for the Craftie Cafe Store. Today I will be focusing on this stampset from Taylored Expressions “Cutting Edge Flowers stamps and dies”


Today I thought I would show you how the Lawn Fawn Yeti ink looks on Kraft coloured cardstock.  I have repeat stamped the large floral image from the stampset several tines in random order.  Even though this is rather subtle it is just another nice way to have created your own “pattern paper” as such. This is great way for maximizing your supplies with minimal effort.

I find having the Lawn Fawn Yeti ink is ‘must have’ in my ink collection.  I love using my white ink in a variety of ways. In my process video for today’s card I have used  this ink to make the WOW Embossing Powder which has an iridescent glitter throughout it stand out a little more instead of having used a clear sticky ink such as a versamark. This was a way for the opaqueness of the white ink to make the glitter stand out the little more.


To add a pop of colour I have used Distress Oxide inks and created my own “coloured cardstock ” as such as I have generously applied the Distress Oxide ink on white cardstock with a blending tool.  In hind site I could have just swiped the ink pad directly on the cardstock ….. a mental note for myself for next time. Do you have those moments where you realize after the fact there could have been an easier way. Yep that was one of those moments for me here.

Once the distress oxide ink is dried I ran through the Sizzix Bigshot with the Lawn Fawn Mini Pop Up Butterflies dies to cut out these bold butterflies.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Meow Colour Burst Card

Jo Herbert 140518 Meow Picture 1

Hi All, welcome to my card set creation for the Craftie Cafe design team. I had so much fun playing along with the Ken Oliver Colour Burst range to add some intense vibrancy to my cardset. I have played with these before and let me just say I am so glad I have rediscovered them. I love that initially it doesn’t look like you have put that much of the pigment down but once touched with water it was like an explosion of intense , vibrant and beautiful colours on my cards. I have added water with my Distress Sprayer as it disperses a fine mist when pulled in full spritz mode. Now my biggest tip when it comes to handling these powders is to make sure they are thoroughly dried before touching with your fingers as most likely you will get them on there. Now if you don’t mind having them on your fingers feel free to continue on. But because in my case I was using a white top folding card base I had to be a little more mindful of my hands.

The 3 Colorbursts I have used are Violet, Ultramarine & Phthalo Green. All Ken Oliver colour ranges have an array of pigments in the same colours leaving a range of intensity leaving a WOW factor behind.

For my product focus I have chosen this adorable Lawn Fawn “Meow You Doin” stampset. I hope you enjoy my process video with this stampset.

For the dies I have used the Lawn Fawn Cross stitched in the small rectangle and circle range.

Here are the ink colours I have used from the Lawn Fawn range.

I feel like my cardset has a mixed media to it with the stencil, texture paste and the colour burst. I don’t know why I felt compelled to make this type of card but I just had all these items out on my desk and just went for it. My layering process started with the colour burst panel, then stencils and texture paste then dies.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Meow You Doin?

Hi All, Welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe online store. 

Jo Herbert 300418 Meow Picture 1

Today I made a cute card with the Lawn Fawn “Meow You Doin?” stampset. One of my all time favourite techniques is creating my own background by repeat stamping. In this case I have heat embossed by using the a clear sticky ink as well as a clear hologram sparkle embossing powder from WOW Embossing.

I am very excited to announce that Craftie Cafe now stocks WOW embossing powders! Who doesn’t love the WOW Embossing powder range.

  I have kept today’s card very simple which I have added bold bright colours from the Lawn Fawn Rainbow 6 x 6 inch Paper Pack placed behind the die cut heart window of the heat embossed panel & rainbow cardstock pack.

The card base is a white top folding base as this is my favourite type of card to use which I cut an score in bulk to have handy at all times. I stamped the cat and the tin of tuna stamp with Versafine Onyx Black ink which I have hand cut out. I chose not to colour the images in this time as I liked the stark white that coordinates with the card base and to coordinate white on the pattern paper.

Using the same paper pack I chose to heat emboss with Lawn Fawn White embossing powder on a panel for the sentiment. To finish the card off I have added some pretty pink posh clear sequins.
