One stamp - Different Ways

Hi again


Christine here again with my last blog post for October. For the theme "One stamp - different ways" Iv'e used the lovely Cracked Leather stamp. Iv'e stamped the image in blue over a canvas which I covered in coloured and inked tissue paper.

I then stamped the image again on yellow paper and cut out various shapes sticking them to the bottom left of the canvas.



I then stamped the image again but this time onto brown paper and cut out a Dragonfly shape which I embossed with Pink Perfection powders which gave an irridescent look to the wings.

I melted some Melt It powders using my Melt pot and moulded some flowers which I added to my canvas along with clear embossed leaves.

Adhesive stones were added to the Dragonfly to finish.  Iv'e had lots of fun with this theme.

Good luck to those of you who have entered the Challenge - another on the way for November so keep you eye on the blog and details coming soon.....

Have a Heart... One Stamp Two Ways!

Hello!
Trish here, sharing my projects for the 'One Stamp, Two Ways theme for this month!
I chose a stamp from my favourite set: Gratitude! I used one of the hearts, and made these....
My first project uses the hearts to create a note card.First of all I used turquoise paint to stamp the dots from the Funky Border Strips set ont scrap card, then stamped the heart multiple times using black ink. I cut them out, then sewed them to more white card. A few circle punches later, and the embellishments were ready to go onto the card blank. This was embossed in Apple Red , using the same dotty stamp as before. As the hearts are attached just down the centre, the sides can be raised for a 3D look....
My second use of the heart stamp starts out the same way as the first..... but rather than sewing the heart to more card, I've triple embossed them with clear ultra high powder! This gives a nice sturdy finish, as well as the glass like shine! I glued the hearts to wire, then attached the wire to a piece of driftwood to form this assemblage....
The word at the front is also taken from the gratitude stamp set.
It was almost a shame I had to stop at two uses for this stamp, I love it so much I could go on for ages!!!
Have a great day,
Trish xxxxx

Embossed Ornaments Christmas Card



Happy Wednesday! Nicole here with a fun card to share with you today. I wanted to create a very feminine and classic Christmas card using the ombre background technique. There is also a video tutorial below to make sure to check it out - you can see how the card comes together in person.

I used an ornament stamp set to create today's project. Embossing powders can really pop out those solid images and grab anyone's attention well. I stamped two ornaments onto the cardstock and heat embossed it using some Gold Rich Regular embossing powder.

Few colors of pigment ink pads were used to create this background - I used light pink, bright pink, light purple, dark purple, and a dark gray color to create this ombre look. It really helps those heat embossed ornaments to stand out nicely. Don't you just love the contrast? 


I also heat embossed a scrap white cardstock using the same Gold Rich embossing powder. Those were cut into 1/2" strips and added to the side of the cardbase. Then I popped out the main image using some 3D foam tapes. I left the sentiment part super simple and clean to balance out the card.

Please enjoy the video tutorial below, and the full supplies list can be found here. Thanks for spending some time with me!

Let it Snow tag

Good Morning, this is Jenifer here with you today to share my 1 stamp 2 ways project with you.  I was inspired by the card that I made for the 3L hop that I continued with the stamp and had some fun.


First I Stamped the "Me Blizzard" on a white shipping tag using Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter.  I then sprayed it with some glitter mist and then wiped off the extra with a tissue.  I sprayed a few areas again to make it a bit darker in a few spots wiping off the extra with a tissue. Using the "ME Blizzard" stamp, stamp another image on a piece of white card stock using the Blue Lagoon embossing glitter.  Cut out a complete snowflake and layer it with ribbons and a small medallion.  I love how the Blue Lagoon looks so sparkly and pretty:)  Finally layer, layer, layer your desired ribbons, doilies etc.

I am so happy with how this tag turned out I think I might make a few more and frame them for a Christmas display.

Other Supplies:
May Arts ribbons
Spackle

There will be a step-by-step video on my blog, so make sure to visit if you want to see how this card is made in action. (The video will be uploaded 8am PST 10/23) Applying two different powders really adds a nice depth to the project, I highly recommend you give it a try!

Let it Snow card by Jenifer Cowles
I had so much fun using the foam sheets from 3L.  I took off the protective backing then sprinkled on the Metallic Blue Ultra and heated it then ran it through my embossing machine.  I used a small dot embossing folder from Cuttlebug, I then sanded lightly giving me the small white polka dots.  I love how this looks and I can't wait to play around with some more foam sheets.

Here is a close up.  I stamped the "ME Blizzard" snowflake stamp on a piece of vellum using Bright White  embossing powder and attached it with the EZ-runner.  I did the Let it Snow with a Wow pen and some Metallic Silver powder to tie it all together.  All of the ribbons are from May Arts and the Metal Snowflake are Momenta.


Hey!
It's Sian here with my cards using a combination of 3L's awesome adhesives and WOW!'s wonderful powders - what a match...made in heaven!


For this first card I embossed the background using the Vintage Wallpaper stamp and Metallic Gold Rich powder. I then die cut the trefoil pieces for the 3L 3D Foam Creative Sheets and used Metallic Gold Rich and Metallic Copper powders to create the central embellishment.  It gives a really lovely effect - it's so tactile and full of texture - I don't know why I hadn't tried it sooner!

Here's a wee close up...


Supplies
3L Adhesives - 3D Creative Foam Sheet


I also made this second card...


I don't think I will ever need to buy embellishments again!!  I was really pleased with how well the 3L Dodz took the heat embossing.  I have experimented with opaque and the more translucent powders - they both give a fantastic finish.  The opaque powders create a more matt finish, akin to enamel dots, whereas the translucent powders give a higher shine and you can still see through the dots partly, like glass beads - awesome!

Supplies
3L Adhesives - Dodz
WOW! - Earthtone Grape Powder

One Stamp, two ways ~ A Little Card Magic


Hello and welcome to WOW EMBOSSING BLOG.  This months theme is One stamp, two ways.  I have created a special card to give as a gift.   The stamp set I have used is Vintage wallpaper,  it would be one of my favourite WOW Stamps and can be used for so much.  I love using it as a background.
Vintage Wallpaper - Clear Stamp Set

I stamped a piece of white card stock with my stamp and then added white embossing powder.  This created a white on white effect that I could use as a resist.  I got some colour sprays and strayed my paper over the embossed area.  While the spray was still wet I got a wet wipe and swiped over the embossed area to take of any of the excess spray.


close-up of background embossed area with spray


I used a second piece of card stock and again embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper stamp,  this time I used a contrasting colour, cut my paper to size to fit my die and cut out some pine cone swirls which makes stunning wee roses.


I cut some leaves to go with my roses.


I made the roses and then sprayed with a matching colour of the embossing powder.  I love these little roses.  To finish them off I inked the edges.  I added the roses and leaves along with other embellishments to the base card stock.


WOW EMBOSSING PRODUCTS USED:
St. Lucia Surf embossing powder
Mojave embossing powder
Vintage Wallpaper.

Thanks for popping on over to see what we have been up to this month.  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Happy Scrappin  xox Donna

My one stamp different ways....

Hi everyone - Nikki from the dt here.
I have loved working with this theme..... pick one stamp and do different things with it....
My main stamp that I chose was the 'De-Vine' stamp. It's a new stamp from WOW! and I love it!!!!
The stamp I used for the sentiment on the first card was the 'ME Collage stamp'.
Here is a picture of the stamps so you know what to look for......
 And here are the cards I created with them,
 For the first card I stamped in clear ink and used purple orchid powder to emboss....... This created the back panel.
For the greeting I arranging the words on my stamp block and then stamped with clear ink onto some scrap card..... to create the different colour effect I sprinkled this with purple orchid and  spring breeze powders and then heat embossed.
I love that technique as you get a different effect every time.
 I wanted to show that the 'De-Vine' stamp could also be used for a very pretty little Christmas card......
This one has been stamped using distressing inks.
For my final card I stamped with clear ink and then embossed with clear gloss powder on some scrap cardstock, then heat embossed.
I then used lots of different shades of ink over the top of this, when you take a dry baby wipe and wipe over the cardstock, the ink is removed from all the embossed areas. Another effect that I love.

We would love to see what you do with this theme too..... join in and play along.
Happy crafting

2-way calling - Telephone Box Stamp

The well known icon of the telephone kiosk (aka telephone box) is so recognizable even if dressed two ways. There's the traditional "currant red" of the UK standard boxes and the blue of dr Who's Tardis.

For my monthly project, I used the telephone box stamp from one of Wow Embossing Powder's first stamp sets in a card and in a tag.



The Card
I stamped the telephone box in Memento black ink then used water color paints for the background. I used my heat tool to quickly dry and set the water colors.

I masked the telephone box and sprayed white acrylic paint with a paint brush to dot stars on the background. Then, I stamped the entire face of the card with Versamark ink and heat set on top Wow's clear hologram sparkle embossing glitter. The effect is out of this world.


Can you see the hologram shimmer? 

The Tag
This little tag will look great on a Union Jack themed gift basket I am planning.

I started with the red telephone box stamped on the tag. I masked it then used Memento's Gray Flannel (seemed so appropriate) to fill in the gaps on the tag with more stamping of the box.

The overlay on this tag was done with 1 Layer of Wow's clear ultra high embossing powder.

With a final touch of red ribbon and string, the tag was complete.


With similar embossing techniques and the same stamp, here are two different looks for you!

One Stamp.. Two Ways

Hi! It's Sandie here and it's my turn to share some DT inspiration with you. Our theme this month is One Stamp - Different Looks

I made 2 cards using one of the butterfly stamps from the With Love clear stamp set.

On the first card I used Clear Gloss powder on white card and sponged the background with Victorian Velvet distress ink. 
Tip: Rub over the butterflies with a damp cloth to remove any ink residue. 
I matted it onto white card and used 3D foam to adhere it to the card base. 
I stamped the sentiment with Archival black ink and distressed the edges with the Victorian Velvet. 
Finally, I added some liquid pearls randomly to the card front. 

For my second card I used the butterfly as a focal image. 
I stamped it out onto smooth card and coloured it, to match my papers, using copic markers. 
Purples - V000, V02, V04
Green - YG21, YG23, YG25
I cut  the image out with Lacy Circles nestabilities, adhered it to the card with 3D foam and added some liquid pearl around the circle and under the sentiment. 


WOW! products used:
Stamp - With Love
Powders - Clear Gloss

Same stamp, different cards

I used the Sexi-Hexi background to make two cards of different styles. I made one soft and romantic and one with lots of contrast in black and neon pink.


For the first card I embossed the stamp, greeting and wood veneer star using Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing glitter. The greeting is stamped on Vellum and mounted on top of a banner cut out of neon cardstock.


For the second card I embossed the same background in white and used my Distress inks to color my background in a gradient. I then die cut the word hello out of the background and out of another sheet of cardstock that I first embossed with gold embossing powder and then I put the pieces together like a puzzle. I added a gold embossed wood veneer heart as decoration.
