EMBOSSING GLITTER & TEXTURE PASTE: GLAMOUR COMBINATION

Hello dear friends! Martha Lucia here to share with you a technique that I love to use to create a glamorous and unique piece of art. Usually I use this technique to create cards but you can make whatever you want.


To make this technique you only need a stencil, texture paste and any color of Embossing Glitter. In my sample I used WOW Midnight Dream Embossing Glitter. Let me show you how easy it is to make this.

First you have to secure your card stock under the stencil. I used the Bold Floral Stencil from Hero Arts. Then apply the texture paste using a pallet or knife until have an uniform layer. 

As soon you finish, remove your stencil and cover the entire surface with the Wow Midnight Dream Embossing Glitter. Let it dry totally before melting the embossing with the heat tool. It can take a few hours, but if you wait enough time you avoid big globes on the texture produced by the heat.

Resize your embossed piece and paste this over the card base. 
In my sample I decorate the upper border with a small border that I made using a piece of Whisper White card stock covered with WOW Embossing Pad and WOW Metallic Gold Rich Regular Embossing Powder


The sentiment that I used is from Mr Wows Wonderful Words stamp set and was stamped with WOW Embossing Pad and WOW Metallic Gold Rich Regular Embossing Powder.

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:



STEP ONE

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
