Totally Tropical Tag

Hi everyone,

It's Fran with you today sharing my project for June's Summer challenge theme.

My texture rich tag is filled with bright tropical colours, summer flowers, WOW! goodies and a fabulously cute wooden flamingo

 
The base of the tag consists of layers of die cut shapes which I had accumulating in my craft storage.
I lightly brushed areas with a soft matte medium and sprinkled Emerald City embossing glitter to highlight.

I prepped the wooden flamingo by painting with acrylic, drying and then tapping the WOW clear ink pad over the surface. Next I pinched applied Sweet Cheeks, Yum Yum Yum Bubblegum and Fluro Magenta embossing powders which I then melted with a heat tool.


Inside the oval chipboard frame I used some Clarabelle Sparkles glitter which I adhered with glue applied into the centre recess with a paint brush. I used the same process on some of the flowers using Salsa embossing glitter, which adds a little texture to them along with definition. Very simple but it looks great just to add a little bling onto projects!

Stay creative!

Summer shaker card

Hello, dear friends!
I want to wish you a happy summer time! It is the time to relax and enjoy the sun, warm wind and long days. So my card for today is very clean and simple, light and fresh.
 I created the background, using texture paste with stencil. While the paste was wet, I sprinkled it with WS111 Cha Cha Cha and heat set.



 For the shaker element I used a printed out word summer, stamped word Happy from 
Just Saying (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set and added some background stamping with tiny circles from Hearts & Twine (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set. Then I filled the shaker with some acrylic drops, microbeads and my favourite Sparkles, of course! Here I used SPRK005 Santorini SPARKLES and SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES.

Also I splashed white paint to add more interest and life to the card.
I used the following Wow! products:

Summer

 
 
Hi WOW's fan. This is Laurence (laury55) today to share my project for this month's "Summer" challenge. Flowers are blooming in Summer and I included some in the background and heat embossed them with WOW White Embossing powder. I also wanted to try a technique that I hadn't tried before: I die cut the word "Summer" and added some WOW Misty sky powder on part of each letter as I wanted the watercolor background to show through. I replaced each letter in its original place. 

 

 
I hope you will be inspired and play along on our current challenge.

Spring Tweetings


Hello crafty friends, I hope you're all having a productive week. It's been lovely to play about with WOW! Embossing Powders and Glitters this month and create a non-card project. I decided to revamp a little birdhouse.


I cut  white card to fit the front and sides and covered it with Oasis Regular Powder. I added PVA glue down the corners and around the hole and sprinkled more powder on top to create a more rustic feel.

I used Avocado, Misty Sky and Frozen Regular Powders for the roof and used a circular punch to create the individual roof tiles. Once the tiles were in place I then used the heat tool to melt the powders slightly and sprinkled Sparkles in Sea Horse over the top.


I then used the Chrysanthemum stamp and Opaque Bright White powder on vellum to create the flowers. The smaller flowers and bird were covered in Yum Yum Bubble Gum and Sweet Cheeks powders.

I hope your enjoying the new powders and glitters as much as me!

Fears Conspire | Art Journal Page

Hello crafty friends,

I hope you're all doing well. It's Fran with you today with some more WOW! themed inspiration!


I've had a longing to do some journaling recently this month's brief fitted perfectly and allowed me to scratch my creative itch, so to speak.

So my page is a rather atmospheric affair which was inspired by one of my favourite songs and the reality of worries and fears. The beauty of journaling I find, is channeling fears and worries onto a page and giving them a creative outlet. 



The monochromatic colour scheme worked well with the general theme of the page adding in some small areas of metallic embossing powders lifted it just the right amount. 


I used Melt It powder, Ebony black embossing powder and silicone heart mould to create the embellishment which is incorporated into the photo with cotton trailing out from underneath onto the following pages, entangled with words. Using Perissa thick embossing powder adds a texture around the photo and in loops of gathered cotton.


The Go Figure numbers stamp has been stamped with black ink around the edges of the page, then stenciled over with a number design and light texture paste. I added Champers and Ebony black embossing powder on top of the wet paste then melted to give metallic sheen.

I hope you enjoyed today's project and feel revved up to get stuck into this month's challenge!

Memory Tag by Susanne

Hi there!

Susanne writing today and I'm sharing a memory tag today. I used a baby photo from my grandma's stash and "framed" it with a mixed media tag.


I started with a gelli printed background. I used the "J'adore" background stamp together with jet black Archival Ink. I stamped it randomly with low preassure here and there. After this was completely dry I used two hearts from the "Layered Hearts" set and embossed them with "Golden Flame" Glitter.


The lovely glittered hearts are made with the "Hearts" silicone mold. I mixed: "Fireworks" Sparkle with Melt-It powder.
I cut the love from cardstock which was covered with double sided tape. I add "Fireworks" Sprarkle to the sticky side.


Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne.

Babybook with gold accents

Hello, dear friends!
Victoria is on the blog today, and I want to share with you a babybook that I created for my son's photos. Babybook is an album or notebook with printed pages for photos and notes about your child. It is an easy and pretty way to store your memories. And Memories is the theme on our blog challenge in May!
 The design of the pages is clean with black and gold accents, so I used a bunch of coordinating Wow products to decorate the book.

Pocket page



Laurence here and I am happy to share with you my pocket page. I didnt' want to use the cards sold in scrapbooking shops and decided to create my own. It is very easy and fun. You can create your cards with few materials: stamps, die-cuts and embossing powder. In addition you can decide what color to use to fit to your pictures. I kept the cards simple. My cards mainly consist of die-cut and title or sentiment.
You can just stamp the sentiment on your card (picture below) or use the same stamp and heat emboss it on a color paper. Cut strips of every other word and glue your words on top of the stamped image.

A Little Love


Hello crafty friends, how are we all? I hope alls well in your crafty worlds. This month's challenge is all about our favourite embossing techniques so here's my inspiration.....


There are so many great embossing techniques that it's very difficult to choose a favourite. In the end I went for a simple resist technique around the edges of my card. I stamped hearts from the Layered Hearts Stamp Set and embossed them with Opaque Bright White and Avocado powders.


I then spritzed the card with water and carefully added distress inks to build up the colour. I couldn't resist adding some sparkle and added a strip of double-sided tape through the centre with Sparkles in Jade sprinkled on top.


Finally I added a Big Words sentiment using Iris powder on top. I hope you like it and best of luck with the challenge!

Spring Egg Shrine | Favourite Embossing Techniques

Hi everyone,

It's Fran here with you today.

My latest project takes on the theme of the month, favourite embossing techniques. I have showcased a couple of mine in this Spring themed egg shrine, complete with the sweetest tiny bird and nest. Read on to find out what they are!




The project started out with a plain papier mache egg decoration which I attached to a 3D metal cake mould tin via a cotton reel.

I glued a selection of paper flowers on top of the egg, then added flowers and painted all with chalk paint. For my first favourite technique I stamped a honeycomb design stamp from WOW!'s Hearts & Twine set with the Ultra Slow Drying clear ink pad and sprinkled with Clear Gloss embossing powder then melted with a heat tool. 

Next I sprayed gold mica spray ink over to create a resist effect with the clear embossing on the surface of the egg. Into the the wet spray I added Rose Gold embossing powder onto the top of the egg and melted to give texture and contrast to the flowers.



The tin has been painted with the same chalk paint as used on the egg then decorated with a cluster of flowers around the base. To highlight the flowers I  used Fairy Tale and Rose Gold powders to give shimmer and natural looking highlights.


And a peek inside....



What's your favourite embossing technique? I'd love to know!

Susanne's Favourite Embossing Technique

Hi everyone!

Our April theme is "Your favourite embossing technique"! That's really easy for me, because this is my most used technique. Embossing resist! I LOVE to use Brushos on a embossed background.

I used the "Hearts & Twine" stamp set and embossed the circles with clear gloss powder on watercolour cardstock. As I wanted the heart to stand out, I used Memento Luxe Love Letter instead of clear embossing ink.
I wet the background and sprinkled some Brusho Sea Green on top.


The Birthday comes with the "Just Sayings" stamp set. I stamped it with StazOn Emerald City randomly onto my card. I cut the "happy" with a CUTplorations die and covered it with Salsa Embossing Glitter. Finally I adhered it with foam dots to my card.

Thank you for stopping by today.
xx Susanne.

Supplies:
WOW!
Embossing Ink Pad

Embossing Powder Clear Gloss

Hello


 

Hello everybody, this is Laurence(laury55) to share my favorite technique, or at least one of my favorite techniques as I love to use embossing powder in different ways.
First use your stamp with your embossing pad and WOW clear Gloss embossing powder. You may now use your brush with gelatos, watercolor or distress ink in one or different colors. The melted powder will act as a resist.
 
 
This technique works well with a large stamp or a smaller one that is repeated on your background. I used a stamp of the Wall Art  set and stamped a few times. The flowers are heat embossed with  WOW Vanilla White. I used double sided adhesive and a die "hello", removed the paper and covered the die cut with WOW Sparkles Jade. I hope you will be inspired and show us your favorite technique with embossing powder!
