Embossing with Masks

Hello all,  Donna here today sharing with you one of my favorite technique with WOW Embossing Powder.  Today we are going to take a close up look at embossing with a mask.  
So Lets get right to it.  

Using a mask, ink up like a stamp with your VersaMark stamp pad.  
 Turn mask over and place where you would like image to go
 Using a spare piece of paper and a roller, apply pressure to  to make to leave the Versa Mark ink on paper
 Add your embossing powder to you project (I have used Earth tone Pepper)
 Remove any extra powder with a brush 
 Heat with a heat gun and your done. 
 Here's a layout I have started, I have used it to make a boarder around my photo.
Here's a Layout I have completed using this technique
 and some close ups,  I love how this effect gives added layers with out all the bulk
I have used Cotton Candy Embossing Powder for this layout 
 Here I have used the Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter Powder to make my title pop!  Embossing on chip board is very simple

 Here's how you Emboss Chip Board
 I like to color mine with distress ink,  any form of ink/ paint will work.  After I have added ink  I like to heat set it. then re-stamp with VersaMark 
 Add your embossing powder (Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter Powder )
 remove any extra powder and pop back into your container
 Heat with your heat gun,  and DONE!  
 I love how these look.
Well that's all from me today,  I hope you have been popping back regularly as new posts go up each day and there is some AMAZING projects here.  Thanks for joining us!  Happy Scrappin everyone  .....  xox Donna aka Midnightscrapper

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
