Creative ways using embossing ink

Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW!  We use it all the time to heat emboss, but do you know you can use your embossing ink in other ways on your card making projects and papercrafts? Don't get me wrong I love to heat emboss nearly everything - it's one of my favourite techniques, but why not stretch your supplies to get even more out of them. So, today I'm showing you 4 creative ways to use your embossing ink with a variety of different tools and mediums.

Florida Sunset with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Embossing Glitters. I was inspired by the gorgeous Florida Sunset embossing powder to create a sunset beach scene.


I began with the background. I used the WOW clear embossing ink over a Triangles stencil from Pretty Pink Posh. I covered with the Florida Sunset embossing glitter, then heat embossed using the dual speed heat tool. I recommend heating from underneath when using embossing glitters, as more of the glitter stays put this way. I trimmed the panel down, then adhered to my card base.

Next, I die cut a wave border using a die from the Pretty Pink Posh Stacked Edges 1 set. I added a blend of blue distress oxide inks, then flicked with water for droplet details. I adhered this onto my card.

On another piece of white card, I added some yellow/orange distress oxide inks to create the sandy beach. I also added dots of copic markers which help to create look of sand. I adhered this to my card too.

I added images to my card, from Pr…

Watercoloured Floral card by Jo

Hi all, welcome to today's card creation where I have created a floral card creation with some beautiful embossing powders.
I have created my own glitter cardstock by heat embossing a whole card panel and die cutting with the penant frame from Uniquely Creative.  This is one of my favourite ways of creating my own glitter cardstock. I have done some gentle loose watercolouring with some floral images from the Uniquely Creative stampset Flawed & Fabulous. I coloured these in with Altenew watercolour paint pans. To watch my cardmaking process I have created a youtube video. To finish the card off I used sequins from Handmade By Brittney lee as they complimented the ROse Glintz and Fools Gold Embossing Glitter well. https://youtu.be/LKgKKNag7mI

Creativity requires courage - a journal page by Riikka Kovasin

Hi there! It's Riikka here again, back with a guest project or two! First up is a journal page and then later in the month I'm sharing something completely different. But both of the projects were inspired by this month's theme - embossing glitters. 
The embossing glitters look fantastic on every surface, but have you tried them on top of black? To me that's the most exciting way to use them! Paint a few strokes of black gesso to a surface, pop the glitters on and let them do the magic! The contrast between the glimmering embossing glitters and dark background really makes them pop and shine. I left some of the background white sort of to show how different the embossing glitter looks on dark and light background.

To give the page a space or galaxy kind of look, I used some Oxide inks on top of the gessoed surface. After adding the embossing glitters, I then made a composition to back the sticker that's my focal point. I thought the saying in the sticker fitted th…
