WOW and Words or Whatever #3

Hi Ladies. Tess here again for our last installment of the XOXO Scrapbooking WOW Challenge. I am coming to you from the home country of the XOXO Scrapbooking design team, the USA.

The challenge was simple - use WOW on a layout. I'm pretty sure you all have a bit of it in your stash.

On behalf of XOXO Scrapbooking, I would like to thank Words or Whatever for sponsoring us for the month of May. The girls have had a great time playing with such a fantastic product. And I think you will agree that they have done a great job with a few different inspiration perspectives.

As the inlinkz on the XOXO Scrapbooking blog was set to the wrong date, entries in this challenge will now be accepted up to June 10th.

W is for Word - you must use a word containing the letter 'W' somewhere on your project.

O is for Orange - the colour orange must make up at least 20% of your page or card. Any shade of orange is acceptable.


W is for 'Words Or Whatever' - please use a WOW product on your project - altaMatz, altaWords or chipboard.

Using Pennant Banners on Cards


 Hi, Gini back again today to share an easel card that I made.  I loved adding the banner to help hold my card open.

I first inked the chipboard, and then stamped a background stamp using watermark ink - and heat embossed it using gold powder.  The results really give such fun details.

Building Memories One Day at a Time


It's Gini, here to share with you one of my favorite layouts ever!  I love building up layers - and adding Words or Whatever chipboard, really adds so much visual interest.

 My title was inked with a yellow chalk, and then randomly shaded with a shade of red to produce kind of an ombre effect.

 
 The chicken wire chipboard is one that I use all of the time.  I backed it with a different patterned paper and popped it up from my layout.


Supplies:
Words or Whatever Chipboard - Building Memories One Day at a Time WOW 1273; Large Chicken Wire Piece WOW 1912
Graphic 45 Patterned Paper - French Country Collection
May Arts Ribbon
Clearsnap Ink
Xyron Mega Runner, Creatopia

Words or Whatever Week with Gini

Hi, it's Gini and this week, I will be sharing some creations here at the Words or Whatever Blog.  Up first is this mixed media card.
I used one of the WOW AltaMATZ templates (Doily).  I traced around the entire design using a Aquarelle pencil, and then inked around the outside.  I misted this with water, so that the pencil would disperse.
I took the chipboard gate - painted it with Gesso, then inked it with a dark brown pigment ink, and added some glitter.  The Imagine title was inked to color it, and then I rubbed a little bit of Metallic 3D paint over it.
Supplies
Words or Whatever: 6x6 AltaMatz Doily ALTA033; Imagine Dream Believe WOW1450; Ornamental Gate WOW991
Kaisercraft: Patterned Paper, flowers
Cheery Lynn Designs: Princess Tree die
Hampton Art background stamps
Clearsnap Ink
Xyron Mega Runner

WOW and XOXO Scrapbooking #2

Tess back again with the next couple of layouts from the XOXO Scrapbooking Design Team.

XOXO Scrapbooking is an American based challenge blog who encourage scraplifting. Every two weeks a new challenge is set. The aim for each participant is to create a project inspired by any of the Design Team (scraplift an entire project or use an element of a project) or use the challenge criteria and create something yourself.

We will be showcasing the XOXO Scrapbooking Design Team layouts every Wednesday, here, for the month of May, to give you a bit more inspiration and different ways to use WOW.

Love Always

This challenge is happening all month over at XOXO Scrapbooking. All you need to do to enter is add a piece of chipboard, preferably WOW, to any layout and upload it to the XOXO blog. There is WOW chippy up for grabs and I would love to see some of our Aussie scrappers having a go.
 
To find out more information about what the girls have done with their chipboard, head to the XOXO Scrapbooking blog and check them out. Keep your eyes on the blog here again next Wednesday for some more awesome inspiration from the XOXO Scrapbook Design Team.
 
If calling past, leave us some love.
P.S XOXO
