Monochromatic Card with Karen Reategui

Hello shiny friends! Today I'm up at WOW! Embossing Powder Blog sharing this card I made using WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle and Fairy Tale Embossing Glitter along with Gansai Tambi Starry watercolors.

Let's shine! I stamped Stripe Jumble Background Stamp by Simon Says Stamp onto Gina K Designs Tranquil Teal cardstock using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Fairy Tale Embossing Glitter.

Next, I stamped PinkFresh Studio Just a Little Lovely Stamp using WOW! Embossing Pad onto Gina K Designs Tranquil Teal cardstock and heat embossed it with WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder.

Then, I colored it using Gansai Tambi Starry watercolors and die cut it using the coordinating dies. Additionally, I die cut a shadow using foil paper.

I die cut the sentiment Congrats and shadow from Pinkfresh Studio Essentials: Classic Word Die Set. I heat embossed the Congrats word using WOW! Pearl Gold Embossing Sparkle. Finally, I arranged the floral, shadow, sentiment and added a few …

Pearl powders on black cardstock with Jo Herbert

Hi all Jo here and welcome to today's blog post where I have used what looks like a clear or white embossing powder in the jars but turns into this fabulous pearlized sensation once heat set on your black cardstock.
I have thoroughly enjoyed playing with these powders and loved the transformation it gives with each and every colour.
For today's cards, I have used the Violet, Blue, and Red pearl embossing powders. 
The background stamp I have used the Catherine Pooler Flourishes stamp paired with The Stamp Market One of the Kind sentiment set.
These cards can be easily mass-produced.  Over on youtube, I have given some tips and tricks with heat embossing on vellum as well. 

Click below the youtube on my card making process.

Thanks for visiting and watching.

You're Special with Raluca

Hi everyone and welcome back to our creative WOW space!  Raluca here and I'm so excited to share with you my new CAS card showcasing a beautiful WOW! pearl embossing powder.

I created this card to play along with the "Pearl" theme for the Wow! Embossing Powder Facebook Fan Group page monthly challenge - ❤ WOW Embossing Powder Fans ❤
For my card I played with the fabulous WE08 Green Pearl embossing powder, along with the WL01 Bright White, along with these WOW must have tools WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, WOW! Dual Speed Heat Tool - Euro and WOW! Premium Embossing Craft Mat.

I started my card by die cutting a panel from WOW! Superior Smooth White Cardstock - A5. I absolutely love this cardstock! It's just a smooth, bright white and it's perfect for heat embossing and for coloring with alcohol markers! Definitely a must have in every crafter's stash!
Using the WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad I inked …

Autumn Pearls

Today I am moving on from summer to share a very autumnal looking card. I love the rich warm tones of autumn and the WOW Chocolate Caramel Pearl embossing powder is perfect for the season.

I began with the background. I stamped the Hello Bluebird Petal Play cling rubber background stamp with WOW embossing ink onto a piece of white card. I then embossed the pattern with Chocolate Caramel Pearl embossing powder. The colour of this powder changes when embossed on different colour backgrounds so it’s fun to experiment and see what you get.

I trimmed the panel down to fit the width of a card base but shorter so there’s a space at the bottom, then adhered to my card base. I cut a thin strip of glitter card from the Lawn Fawn Autumn Sparkle card pack, and adhered to my card too.
Next, I die cut two white tags from the Hello Bluebird Stitched Tag Builder die set, cutting an additional rectangle window in one tag, before layering over the other.  I adhered the layered tag to my card, then stamp…

Quick Thank You cards with August Guest Designer Erica

Hi everyone!

Erica back on the WOW! Embossing blog today, with my second guest designer post!

For these cards I decided to use up some of all of the backgrounds I have made but never used. If you are anything like me, it's likely you have a stash or two yourself. And word diecuts? Ay, Mama... I have the same issue with these. I have a massive stash of them too. Once I get on a roll, it's hard to stop. One of my favourites is Big Thanks wafer dies from Simon Says Stamp.

So, what to do with all of these? I use them when I need a card like yesterday, add a little dazzle-dazzle with a heat embossed sentiment and done! Quick, efficient AND fast. Which is the inspiration behind these cards!

I started with cutting out rectangles out of all the panels, using the second biggest one from Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle diecuts and made a matching number of card bases out of black card stock. I use Lawn Fawn's Black Licorice for these and a big bunch of Everyday Sentiment Banners.

I lov…
