Video: Make Your Own Glitter Cardstock with Embossing Glitter!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  It’s Erica here on the blog, with glitter everywhere.  In today’s post I’m going to be playing with some new glitter powders and make my own glitter card stock for some word dies. You can hop on over to the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel if you want to see this in action. And yes, I realise I have already done this once this month, but these are more of the delicious new colours being released on the 25th!  First I took some spare bits of card stock. I did use Neenah #110 to make sure it wouldn’t turn into a glittery goo, as I was intending to saturate the card stock with the Embossing Pad and then cover it in the glitter powder. The powders I’ve used are from the Pick Me Up Trio and the colours are called Punch, Minty and Earl Grey.  To avoid a big mess, I used a sheet of acetate under the cardstock when I was dabbing the Embossing Pad on it. Then I transferred that to a sheet of cheap printer paper to collect the excess embossing glitter.  With th

Paper Doll Dance with Nicci Battilana

Are you ready to dance the Futterwacken with Alice!   I had been yearning to create a new paper doll, as it has been a few years since I have released one.    While using my last printable as a visual reference, I sketched out Alice on Canson's smooth Bristol paper (100lb) . Once I was happy with her size and visual details, I inked her with my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen.   You can watch ALICE come to life in our YouTube video. STEP 1 ~ I used my watercolour paints to assist in bringing our dear Alice to life. STEP 2 ~ With the use of my WOW! Embossing pen and the fab new WOW! Embossing Powders (which are being released on January 25, 2021) we make Alice sparkle and shine! I began with 'Minty', as it was a perfect accent for her dress & hair bow. STEP 3 ~ When it was time to move on to the next colour, I selected 'Earl Grey' along with Marion Emberson's 'Tropical' stamp & the WOW! Embossing Pad.  I used scrap pieces of printer paper to block off

VIDEO: Abstract acrylic painting with heat embossed highlights - easily transferrable to a card design!

  Hello, it's  Verity  with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! I've recently gotten into acrylic painting, it is becoming a very enjoyable hobby, and I thought why not add some heat embossing to my acrylic painting for some extra shine and sparkle! I've created quite an abstract style painting which you could easily transfer into a card project by using your inks instead. So for those that are scared of mixed media, then why not start off with something simple like these where there is no rule to follow and no set images which may constrain you.  Abstract acrylic painting with heat embossed highlights  Video Tutorial: Check out the video over on the WOW!

I started off with Phthalocyanine Blue and a 1 1/2" flat brush. Whilst this is still wet, blend in your next colour for a smooth blend.  I then
