Winter Joy card + Video Tutorial

Hi everyone!

It's Fran here with you today with a video tutorial in which I create this festive Winter card using WOW! Fab Foils, embossing powders along with showing you how to create your own DIY embellishment (which gets the full WOW! treatment!).


I used a selection of powders on the project to alter and add some seasonal sparkle; Silver Hologram Sparkle, Vintage Peacock embossing glitter, Opaque Bright White plus my favourite Copper Fab Foil.  Stamping always gives a complete look to background areas, and on this project I added subtle snow flurry details with the mini background stamp from WOW's Let It Snow set.



Customising chipboard letters with Fab Foil is such a fun and easy way to alter and add some shine.



I hope you enjoy the tutorial!





Wishing you all a very Merry & Bright festive season.

JOY WINTER FOREVER AND EVER

Winter Style with WOW Embossing Powders and their amazing colors and textures. Today I have a card to share with you that I created using three different tones of blue available in WOW Embossing Powder. Take a look at my card:

 
This month the theme is winter and I decided to use Whisper White card stock for the base and layers. Let me share how I made this:
  1. Cut the base of card. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2".
  2. Cut a second layer using the same card stock.
  3. Make a dry embossing using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder.
  4. After dry embossing, pass the WOW Embossing Pad easily over the raised up side to apply the ink and cover the card stock with  Coastal WOW Embossing Glitter.  
  5. Melt the glitter with the WOW Heat Tool.
  6. Using snow flake die cuts, cut a medium snow flake and cover it the WOW Embossing Pad.
  7. Apply Blueberry Cheesecake WOW Embossing Powder over the inked side and melt the powder with the heat tool. If you want  darker color, just repeat the process.  
  8. Using a word die cut, cut the word Joy three or more times. Paste and cover them with the ink of the WOW Embossing Pad.
  9. Cover the inked word with with the Vintage Peacock WOW Embossing Powder and melt with the WOW heat tool. If you want to have more texture, just repeat the process.  
  10.  Now it's time to assemble the card. To make this, just paste the first embossed layer over the card base using dimensionals and then paste the snowflake and the joy word.

Thank you for letting me share during this year all the wonderful things that WOW products has to offer. I love to be part of this amazing team and you will be in my heart  and crafts always! 

 I hope my projects inspired you and come back soon for more ideas.

Wintery Art Journal Page by Susanne

Hi my dear mixed media friends!

I'm sharing a step by step tutorial today on how I created this wintery art journal page.

I start with a snowflake stencil and embossing ink. I used Sparkling Snow to emboss the snowflakes.

I wet my page very well  and add some Brusho powders.

After everything is dry I add another layer of snowflakes with Molding Paste. I add Iced Silver glitter immediately.

After the paste with the glitter is dry I melt it with the heat tool. If you melt it before it is dry, you will end up with bubbles, which might be also a nice effect.

Finally I add my snowman from old book paper. I add some marks and my title.




Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne

Supplies:
Iced Silver

Winter Wonderland


Hello crafty friends, where has this year gone? I can't believe this will be my last blog post of 2016.
So....as the theme for this month's blog challenge is "winter" I just couldn't resist one more Christmas card!


I've combined a die-cut village scene with Marion Emberson's 'Let It Snow' Stamp Set. I embossed the snow scene and the trees with a mixture of  Opaque Bright White, Pastel Glacier Mint and Iced Silver Glitter WOW Embossing Powders.


The stars were embossed with Metallic Silver and the sentiment with British Summer regular powders. I covered a button with Under The Sea Glitter for a final sparkly flourish. 

I would like to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a crafty new year!

Winter

 
 

Hello, this is Laurence today to show you a page in my December journal. This month's theme is Winter on the WOW Embossing blog and it is just perfect because it is pretty cold here. We measured -5°C as a day temperature. I decided to include snowflakes as a focal point and used a die covered with WOW Midas Touch. The word "Winter" is partly covered with WOW Under the Sea embossing powder. I applied a stencil on my background and rubbed my embossing inkpad before adding WOW Metallic Silver powder. I lightly painted with watercolor and stamped some snowflakes. The sentiment from the Let it Snow sheet is embossed with opaque white on a blue cardstock.

 

Happy crafting and join us for our monthly challenge…

Hello, dear friends!
Can you believe it is December already? It is high time to unpack your Christmas decoration and create greeting cards for all your beloved ones. I love making cards and here is a new one with amazing Wow! products for our "Winter" challenge.
As usual, I created custom background by stamping with  Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad confetti stars and snow from Clear Stamp Set Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) and embossed with WK14 Frozen embossing powder. Then I applied some clear texture paste with a stencil and added some pearlescent sprays.
Then I cut the window out of paper and embossed it with WK14 Frozen powder. Also I decorated chipboard elements for the window with the same powder. Then I added clear acetate to the backside of the window and created the shaker, filling it with sequins, glitter, beads etc.
I glued simple flower arrangement and embellished it with die-cut flourishes, which are covered with WS103 Mistletoe Magic and WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powders. 
The sentiment from Clear Stamp Set Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) is also embossed with WS103 Mistletoe Magic.
Also I stamped a few snowflakes, embossed with WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powder and fussy cut them. 
A closer look at the shaker - it is like a window to the street and you can see a child knocking on the door.
