Welcome Emma ….

Hi Guys,

How lucky are we to have the very lovely and talented Emma Godfrey share her take on Triple Embossing !!!
Enjoy, and don't forget you have one more day to enter the Challenge for this month… http://wowembossingpowder.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/october-challenge-and-september-winner.html

Don’t go breaking my heart


Hi everyone. Emma here with an idea for cards using the triple embossing technique. 
I stamped the dotty heart stamp (from the Layered Hearts stamp set) three times onto a playing card. (I like the fact that with the plastic coating, playing cards are slightly tougher for this technique). It doesn’t need to be perfect - I just wanted the rough shape. Cut them out and wipe off any ink that hasn’t dried.

Triple emboss each heart using WOW Fluorescent Blue Regular embossing powder. Whilst the top layer is still hot stamp the dotty heart into each one.
Press the stamped hearts onto the WOW embossing ink pad and then apply Ranger Perfect Pearls powder in Bronze with a brus…

A Touch of Autumn

Hello crafty friends, how are we all? There have been some amazing projects for the triple embossing challenge this month and now it’s my turn. The textures you can achieve with this technique reminded me of cracked and dry autumn leaves so I decided to make a mini wreath.

I started by applying and then melting two layers of Oasis and one layer of Oceanic powder to white cardstock. I then re-melted a small area, pushed one of the Flights of Fancy Stamps into the molten powder then removed after a few seconds. I then cut out the leaf then repeated the process over the rest of the cardstock.

I created more leaves using a different leaf stamp pressed into three layers of Perissa Powder then shaped each leaf with my fingers. I then die-cut leaves from orange cardstock and applied then melted three layers of Clear Gloss powder. Once they were cool I bent them to crack the layers. I attached all the leaves to a circular frame die-cut from Kraft card.

I used the Big Words Stamp and Bark pow…

Triple Embossing:

Hello paper crafting peeps Jo here and welcome to today's card creation  demonstrating the triple embossing technique. I have created these leaves impressions with the gold & rose gold embossing  powders stamping with the Flights of Fancy set.
TIP: This technique is a great way for creating your own embellishments.

Tipple embossing technique - Step 1. Place the ink pad directly on the cardstock and generously apply the embossing poweder on the ink.  Step 2. Heat emboss with the heat gun. Step 3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 3 times over and place the heat gun over the 3rd time round a little extra longer until it turns molten. You will see the difference as the powder almost looks molten or  liquidy. 
TIP: Make sure your stamp is already mounted and ready to stamp for Step 4.
Step 4. Working quickly place the stamp while the embossing powder is still molten over the top applying a heavy pressure. Count to 10 and slowly lift off the stamp leaving behind the impression. 

For the card ba…

The days of autumn - a canvas by Riikka

"The days of autumn are translucent painted on the forest’s golden ground - -" - Edith Södergran, "The Days of Autumn", 1916
Hello there! It's Riikka here today. I started this post with a quote from my favorite poet, Finnish Edith Södergran. She's a fascinating character and her poems are really beautiful and full of longing. These few words fitted my project so well that I wanted to include them here. 
Today I'm sharing an autumn canvas with you I did inspired by this month's challenge theme, triple embossing. The background holds two different ways of that technique. There's stamping to the triple embossed surface in two ways. I also treated some of the embellishments with embossing powders and created some sparkling roses to the piece as well. Want to know how I made it? Please see the steps below! 

This canvas celebrates the autumn. What I love about this season are the colors and also the anticipation. The winter is drawing nearer and aft…

Mixed Media Artist Trading Card by Susanne

Hi there!

Susanne here today and I have to share a mixed media Artist Trading Card. An ATC is a handmade card that measures 2.5 by 3.5 inches. They are meant to be for trading.
I do not trade at the moment, but I love creating those little pieces of art. Sometimes I use them in my art journal, in mini albums or to decorate a greeting card.


Here are the step by step instructions:

Let's start with the butterfly. It is made with the Triple Embossing Technique.
After I inked up the chipboard butterfly with embossing ink I added one layer of Primary Bluetiful Powder to it. In my next step I added two layers of Neptune Embossing Glitter. I melted the powder between each layer and added the next layer of powder immediately on top while the powder was still hot.
I did this also with three more layers of Clear Gloss Ultra High. After I heated the last layer I pressed the "Go Figure" stamp into the melted powder and let it sit there for about one minute.


The ATC background is a dr…

Autumn tag by Laurence

Hello WOW fans! I'm so excited to share a tag using the triple embossing technique. It's autumn now and I was inspired by the warm colors of the season.
I started with a white tag and added some strips of washi tape to add texture, added gesso. When dry, I used a wet brush to dilute gelatos and neocolor II. 

The Flights of Fancy stamp set is just perfect for the season. I used gold pearl to heat emboss some leaves. Pearl embossing powders are really fun to use and react differently, depending whether you have a light or dark background. You should try them, you won't be disappointed.
I used a separate leaf for the triple embossing technique. I first stamped with a light inkpad and cut around the stamped image.
The leaf is covered with 3 layers of embossing powder. I used Clear Gloss and Metallic Gold Rich. When the last layer was still hot, I gently pressed down my stamp.




I dabbed white glue through my stencil and sprinkled Pumpkin spice sparkles. You may now add all your elemen…
