Folk Art Cards by Jaine

2019 has gone by like a whirlwind, but along the way there have been many things to celebrate with WOW! as well as many blog hops with some fantastic companies. In December the team are bringing you a few designs using some of our favourite products from this year's blog hops and this has to be one of my favourite stamp designs. It's from a stamp set called Cottage Garden by Newton's Nook Designs and I adored it the moment I saw it! Full of folk art images the possibilities for patterns are endless.

For our Facebook challenge using silver or gold this month, I used the same stamp set arranging it in a square formation. This is easy to do with small stamps and gives you that Scandinavian Folk Art look which is very effective at Christmas.

Here's a simple way to do it. Draw a grid onto a piece of card and use this to stamp the images onto.

To achieve different colours, I stamped and sprinkled embossing powder without heating, leaving it altogether to heat set! This avoi…

Christmas Baubles with Karen Reategui

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing this Christmas card over WOW! Embossing Powder Blog and I’m featuring the WOW! Christmas Baubles Stamp Set. I’m so proud to say that this is the first stamp I have designed for WOW! Embossing Powder. It was released last October at Hochanda TV Show. This Christmas Baubles Stamp Set is available at WOW! UK shop now.

Let’s shine! I started by stamping the smallest bauble, stars and snowflakes using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed them with WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder.

Then, I colored the images using Copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I applied WOW! Embossing Pad on top of card and then added WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter with my fingers to create the look you see on the card.

Additionally, I die cut the word “Celebrate” from Birch Press Design several times and I created a stacked die cut to heat emboss using WOW! Sugared Almond Embossing Glitter and added a last coat of WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder for a g…

Gold Sparkle Christmas Plaid with Gemma

Today I'm sharing a simple and elegant Christmas card design, with some beautiful embossing powder and glitter.

I love the look of tone on tone embossing. I took a panel of Lawn Fawn Gold Rush cardstock and stamped the Hello Bluebird Cozy Plaid background stamp over the top with clear embossing ink. I then embossed the stamping with WOW Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing glitter. The cardstock has flecks of gold in it too, which tones in so well with the embossing glitter.

I added my gold embossed panel to my card base, then embossed a greeting from the Hello Bluebird Bold Holidays stamp set with Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder. 

Next, I die cut the Merry coordinating die from the Hello Bluebird Bold Holidays set. I die cut this 3 times from white card, layering them together to get a stacked sentiment. On the top layer, I inked it with clear embossing ink, then embossed it with Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder.I adhered the silver letters to my card to finish. 

HELLO gold and silver with Ashlee

Hey everyone....
It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a couple cards to share with you today using pops of gold and silver giving you some inspiration for our monthly theme!!
I created these card by starting with a coloured card base and adding some ink around the edges getting lighter towards the centre....

For this pink version I used Catherine Pooler party dress for the ink colour on the pink cardstock and then Flirty fuchsia for the ink colour on the light purple!!

It was then time to die cut the hello with a bouquet die from Pinkfresh studio and heat emboss it with WOW! Mettalic gold sparkle powder....
I just love this gold powder it's super beautiful!!

Using the same colour card as I used in the purple version I die cut the Hello with a bouquet die to get the hello letters and add them inside the die with some foam tape for added dimension....
Onto the second card I die cut the hello with a bouquet die in the same pink cardstock and added that to the card base...

Happy Holidays with Frau Pony

My name is Martina. I am living in Switzerland and am really passionate about Papers, Colours and Coffee, of course!  I love to get up early in the mornings (and on rainy Sundays…) to dig into craftiness before going to work. Creativity in all its facets has always played an important role in my family and life: it is my passion and feels like a part of my DNA  I love exploring and pushing boundaries in my crafting - wether it is cardmaking, mixed media or papercrafts general.  Usually I don’t stick to a specific style or technique for very long – I enjoy the flow of the creative process and filling my treasure trove with new experiences 
I’m beyond excited to be a guest designer for WOW! this month! ****************** Today, I have two cards for you which combine two of my favourite techniques when it comes to papercrafting.
Heat embossing and getting a bit messy :)

I started with getting some color onto water color paper and move it around by adding some water with a brush. I have …
