Mixed Media with Sparkles

Hi Crafty friends!  It is Natasha and I am super excited to be back on the WOW blog today!  For today's post I am sharing a mixed media style card using both embossing powders and the Sparkle powders as well!  I had a lot of fun and I am excited to share my card with you!  So let's get started!  


I started by creating my colorful background on mixed media paper.  I have had this paper in my stash for awhile, but don't use it too often as it is lighter weight!  It worked perfectly for today's card.  I started with a mix of sprays from Dina Wakley.  I placed my card stock into my splat box and used different color sprays on my paper.  These are acrylic spays and they dry quickly.  


Once my background was dry I wanted to add some more texture to the background using 2 stencils from WOW.  I used both the Lots a Bubbles and Lots a Dots Stencils.  I placed these one at a time onto my colorful background and used a sponge dauber to add white acrylic paint through the stencil.  I repeated the same process for both stencils.  I love the added texture and dimension this gave to the background with just a stencil and some paint.  Next I added some mixed media style stamps to my background using Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink.  I stamped a few images and then set this aside to dry.  


While my background was drying I started to work on embossing a white panel for my die cut letters (Hello).  I placed the white paper onto my ink pad and pressed the paper onto the pad to allow for even coverage.  I then heat embossed the panel using Decadent Ruby Powder.  Next I die cut the word hello on my embossed panel.  I set these aside.  I wanted to add a bit more sparkle to today's card and used WOW Sparkles in Gold Dust.  To add the sparkle to my card I stamped an image onto the background using my WOW embossing ink pad.  I then sprinkled bonding powder onto the image and heat set.  This creates a "sticky" image which will then hold your sparkles.  Once I sprinkled the Gold Dust onto the image, I did heat set one more time to ensure the sparkles were on my panel.  


To finish my card I added a die cut element using black card stock, as well as a friend die cut.  I had so much fun with today's card!  

I love watching the powders melt and the sparkle in the Gold Dust just adds such a fun element to today's card!  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I have linked all the WOW products I have used below!

Video tutorial - how to use bonding powder without laminator

Hi, 

foiling is very trendy and WOW embossing powder has got beautiful foils and super product called Bonding powder. For foiling you do not need laminator! Really I will show you how to use bonding powder without laminator and the best is than you can use any of your stamps . It is maybe a little bit experiment but it works! 

MATERIAL

You need just some nice vintage old paper or any kind of not foiled and not embossed patterned paper.

Then just bonding powder, foil, embossing ink and heat tool. See list of materials below.







Have a nice day
Kate

Snowflake

Hi friends...

It's Ashlee here today and I have been having some WOW! fun using stencils and stamps with my embossing powders....

I wanted to create a super sparkly snowflake as the main feature on the card so I used the gorgeous WOW! Icicle teal powder from the Winter dreams trio by Martina with the Snowflake stencil by Verity and embossed it onto some off white cardstock that has a slight fleck in it!!


I just love this beautiful Icicle teal, isn't it so sparkly and gorgeous!!


One of my favourite ways to use the WOW! Opaque bright white embossing powder is to use it to emboss my sentiments on black cardstock....

It's such a crisp way of adding a sentiment that pops!! 


For this sentiment I used the WOW! stamp set Merry sentiments also designed by verity....
One part I fussy cut and the other I embossed on a strip!!

Both the stencil and the stamp were started using some WOW! ultra slow dry ink, this is a fabulous ink for embossing. It stays sticky for quite some time giving you a great time frame to get your powder on!!

I finished the card off by adding a touch of pink fresh jewels that I attached using some glue dots.

I have a reel with all the steps of how I created this card up on my instagram if you would like to check it out at @ashbie1412 and It will also be available on the WOW! instagram!! 

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope I inspired you to get your stencils out to emboss with your powders. Happy embossing Ashlee
