Mint Layered Florals by Jo

Hi all, welcome to today's blog post where I have made a layered embossed card with the New Release embossing powder "Bang". Because this stampset is a leyered stampset I have layered heat embossing twice with Mint Macaroon embossing powder also. 
I have added some layered elements to my card such as stamping with white unicorn pigment ink on grey cardstock as part of the base. The frame and leaves I have used is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio ephemera pack Midnight Collection.  Hope you enjoyed the youtube on my card making process.
Happy Paper crafting Hugs Jo

Greatest Hits Embossed Background with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Pastels. I’ve gone for a slightly different take on the challenge, using a light colour of card stock and creating a clear embossed musical background for my card.

I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Mermaid Card stock. With the WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder, I embossed a background using the Greatest Hits stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs.

I wanted the background to have an abstract feeling to it, so I used the Altenew Splatter stencil to add more details, embossing them with the clear embossing powder too.

Once I was happy with the background, I added some Evergreen Bough distress oxide ink to the edges of the embossed panel. I then adhered it to my card base.
I die cut some records and music notes from the Greatest Hits die set, along with the arm of the record player. I adhered those to my background with liquid glue.

For the sentiment, I used WOW Opaque White Superfine embossing powder to heat emboss a greeting on black. I adhered thi…

A Tissue Paper Background by Jaine

Hello there and happy Wednesday or happy hump day as it's fondly known!

Today I've created a card with a quick and easy background, using one of my favourite collage techniques.  Last time I showed you how to cover eggs with tissue paper, this time again I've used tissue paper, but to create a pastel coloured background.

I keep lots of tissue paper for collage as I love the translucency of it as well as being able to use it as a stamping medium on uneven surfaces.

I took a couple of pieces of pink and mint green and cut them into small pieces, gluing them to a piece of white card with some gel medium. The great thing about tissue is when it's overlapping like this it creates a beautiful effect.

I made sure this layer was totally dry before moving on to stamping and embossing a random pattern of flowers and leaf shapes using this stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh called Autumn Blooms. I used Opaque Pastel Pink and Mint Macaroon powders.

I cut my card to size and mounted…

Heat Embossing Pastel Backgrounds with Jenny

Hello everyone, Jenny here and in keeping with our pastels theme this month (check out the WOW! Embossing Fans facebook page to take part in our monthly challenges!) I have created three pastel colored backgrounds with different mediums, all of which I have heat embossed on for the focal image.

I have a video to share showing you how I created all of these cards over on the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel:

My first card uses watercolor to create the pastel background.   I used handmade watercolor paper, and heat embossed the Catherine Pooler Cottage Garden background stamp (after using my powder tool) in WOW! Embossing Opaque Vanilla White embossing powder.  I'm enjoying using the different white embossing powders WOW! has and I'll be showing you another one in an upcoming post.   They are ever so slightly tinted - although it's hard to tell in the photo, this one is just like Vanilla Ice Cream!

To watercolor my background, I used Distress Inks in pastel colors - Shaded Lil…

Heat Embossing with Karen Reategui

Hello shiny friends! Today I'm over the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog sharing two cards made with WOW! Opaque Pastel Yellow, Metallic Silver and Soft Mango Embossing Powders. The stamp used is from Altenew.

Let's shine! For the first card I used the Altenew Build-A-Flower Anemone stamps and dies. I stamped the flowers onto WOW! Superior Smooth White Cardstock with WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed them using WOW! Metallic Silver and Opaque Pastel Yellow embossing powders. I die cut these flowers using the matching dies and also I stamped and die cut some leaves too.

Next, I stamped the Altenew Moroccan Mosaic Stamp with WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it using WOW! Soft Mango embossing powder. I made a diagonal cut and adhered it to a silver shimmer notecard using glue.

Then, I added the flowers and leaves on top using glue and foam tape.
