Rainbows all the way!

Hi everyone
Its my turn to share with you my Rainbow challenge card for this month!
I love rainbows, just something about them that makes me happy!

So this is what I used to create my 'happy' card.


I used Pink and Main Happy For You stamp set with all those gorgeous different colours of embossing powders - all from the Primary range -  Pink Robin, Marshmallow, Sunset Orange, Lemon, Luscious Lime, Lagoon and Indigo with a bit of beautiful sparkle in the Pearl Gold Sparkle!


I stamped the wording using my stamping platform, starting with Lemon, working up and they down my card blank.


Stamped the sentiment using the amazing WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, sprinkled over the powder, tap the excess off and heat to reveal the fabulous shiny finish.


I then stamped the 'Happy' from Pink and Main Happy Stamp set and sprinkled over the stunning Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing powder, again using my stamping platform.  I was then able to ink the 'happy' and stamp again, …

Hello! It's Ardyth here from MASKerade and I'm thrilled to be a Creative Guest for the month of August! Heat embossing is a magical part of cardmaking - remember how amazed you were when you first saw the powder melt and transform? I certainly do, and 12 years later, I still get that feeling every time I pull out my heat gun!
Today I used a rainbow of embossing glitters and a simple…

Rainbow flower cards | Zsoka Marko

Hey crafty friends,
This month's theme at WOW! embossing powder is "rainbows". My fave! I love rainbows, they make me happy.
I generally don't use a lot of different embossing powders at the same time because I don't like warping. Plus the more times I emboss the same paper, the more stray powder I have, no matter what I do. So I decided to challenge myself to use several powders on my card and I'm glad I did.

Here's what I used for today's cards:

WOW! Embossing Pad WOW! Primary Ebony Regular embossing powder WOW! Metalline Perfect Plum Regular embossing powder WOW! Primary Parma Violet Regular embossing powder WOW! Primary Blue Tang Regular embossing powder WOW! Primary Apple Red Regular embossing powder WOW! Primary Bird of Paradise Regular embossing powder

I chose the Simple Flowers set from Altenew for these cards. It was the very first set from Altenew that I bought and to this day never used! It was love at first sight but I wasn't much of…

Abstract Circles by Jaine

I am a big fan of abstract art and use it alot in my journals and on cards. This card might take a little time to make but it's loads of fun and worth the effort.


I've a set of nesting circle dies and used this to cut different sizes with holes. If you don't have circles you could try with any other shapes like squares or hearts for example.


On a piece of watercolour paper I used my embossing pen to make marks covering it with Opaque bright white powder. I also used a stippling brush and an embossing pad to make some bigger patches.

 With the marks embossed I added patches of watercolour and when this was dry I went over with a fine liner adding marks and words.


I embossed the circles in different colours of powders which was a good opportunity to play with lots of different colours together. I double embossed the bigger ones to get a deeper colour. On a couple of the circles double embossing made the powder separate as it was heated a second time. I don't actuall…

Embossed Stripes with Gemma

Hello everyone, this is Gemma from mygirllollipop.com. I am thrilled to be joining the fabulous WOW design team and am looking forward to sharing projects with you!


Today I’m sharing two cards featuring a fun striped pattern. This design is easy to recreate with your favourite colours of WOW embossing powders and glitters, and perfect for both masculine and feminine cards.


I began by cutting two 4 inch square card bases, along with two pieces of white card the same size.
I cut wide strips of stick it adhesive sheet, then used scissors to create uneven edges to the strips. If you prefer the straight edges, then you could skip this step.


I then adhered the strips to the white card panels, varying the width of strips for a more interesting design.
Next, I chose some WOW embossing powders and glitters in a nice mix of colours. I removed the adhesive backing from the first strip and added the embossing powder over the top. I then heat set it with the WOW heat tool. I continued this step un…
