Double Embossing Tutorial a favorite technique

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you my favorite technique using embossing powders. It is double embossing and you can make this using regular card stock or glossy card stock but I prefer the glossy card stock because it enhances the shininess of the powder. Take a look at my card.


I created this using the stamp set Mariposas created by Maya Isaksson and the stamp set Just Saying created by Marion Emberson. But let me tell you how you can make this fun technique.

1. Cut a piece of glossy card stock and ink it very well with WOW Embossing Pad.
2. Cover the entire piece with your favorite color of WOW Embossing Powder. I used the new color Banana Split WOW Embossing Powder for my sample.
3. Melt the powder with your WOW Heat Tool.
4. If you consider it necessary, repeat the process to enhance the color.

5. Ink your stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamp it over the embossed piece of card stock.
6. Cover the stamped image with a second color of WOW Embossing Powder. In my sample I used Florida Sunset WOW Embossing Powder.

7. Remove the excess and melt the powder with the WOW Heat Tool.
8. With this technique you can create background or single stamped images. I wanted a single image and I decided to cut this with my scissors.

To finalize the card, I create a card base using very vanilla card stock and a second layer that I cut using a cross stitched oval. I stamped over this oval two words included on the stamp set Just Saying. For this I used WOW Embossing Pad and Earthtone Grape WOW Embossing Powder. Also, I inked the frame of the oval using the die cut as mat.


I added a tiny butterfly that I cut with a punch on the top using a left over of the first layer of my embossing piece.

Easy and beautiful, don't you think?

I hope my project inspiring you to create and use your WOW Embossing Powders and try the new colors, they are simply gorgeous and perfect for this season.

See you soon!

  1. A beautiful creation Martha Lucia and I have never tried using embossing powder over an entire background and then adding more EP over the top using that pretty butterfly, and this makes a wonderful topper resting on the double stitched oval which has been so delightfully inked. I love the sentiment too. x

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…

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…
