Hello my stampin’ peeps! Are you ready for a new Now or WOW Flash Card video? Today I will be featuring the Hanging Garden stamp set. This set is perfect for today’s Flash Card. The coloring is very simple and quick and the card goes together quickly as well.
Let’s start with the NOW card.
This layout is wonderful! It honestly doesn’t look like it could be a Flash Card but it is. That panel to the left adds a great extra element to the card.
I kept the coloring very simple for the Now card.
Oooh, but look at the WOW card!
For the Wow card, I brought in a little embossing with the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.
I used the Stampin’ Blends on this card and they sure add that extra WOW factor.
Some sponging to soften the edges and a little shimmer ribbon, and the card is done.
Let me share today’s NOW or WOW video with you….

The funniest thing happened yesterday. I was in my stamp room creating a card with the new Pick a Pennant stamp set. It has some little letters in it and I was spelling out “Congrats” but the “R” was no where to be found. I pulled it out so I know it was there. I checked the bottom of every ink pad, every side of the stamp case box, I crawled on the floor and got excited when I thought I saw it but it turned out to be a dead bug (eww). I even checked the cuff in my capris wondering if it fell off the desk and landed there. Christina came in and she helped me search and we just couldn’t find it anywhere. Luckily the set has 2 R’s and I was pretty happy about that but I KNEW that stamp had to be nearby.
About 10 minutes later, I discovered this.
Thank you guys so much for joining me today. I hope you found inspiration in today’s Now or Wow card. It’s a great layout and I have a lot of different stamps that I think would look great on this card.
Tomorrow is Friday and that means a new Creative Juice sketch. Make plans to join me then! Have a great Thursday. Go show the world your awesome side today!
