Glimmering ATCs by Riikka

Moikka! It's Riikka here today sharing a step by step to some sparkling spring ATCs. My inspiration for these was the color combo of the "Mint Macaroon" and the "Opaque Pastel Yellow" powders. That combo of the minty green and pale yellow was so fresh and spring-like that I just had to use it! 

Above you can see the ready triplet of cards. What looks like kraft cardstock in the first glance is actually triple embossed cream cardstock! The earthy, greyish color of the "Primary Goose" powder acts as the perfect base for the sherbet styled colors coming on top. But if you want to see how the cards were made, please see the step by step below! 

Step 1. Start by cutting ATC sized pieces of cardstock and triple emboss them using the "Primary Goose". I used a light cream shade of cardstock and turned it almost into a kraft cardstock with the powder. 

Step 2. Add a subtle pattern to the cards by using the "Tropical" stamp and the "Mi…

Too Sparkly? Never!! by Jaine

What's not to love about this months theme? Everyone needs some sparkle in their lives at some point.

I've tried to embrace the theme without going totally over the top, well I had to have a little restraint before it ended up looking like an explosion.

The stamp sentiment started me off, it's such a cute quote the rest came quite easily.

I started with a few die cut shapes of flowers and leaves and selected some of my favourite sparkly powders and glitters. 

I loved embossing the shapes with glitter powder especially mixing and matching colours together.

When it came to covering the flowers I mixed Clear powder with Sparkles to create my own sparkly embossing powder.

I like to experiment and mixing coloured powders with coloured glitters produced some beautiful results.

 The butterfly is what came out from the blend.

When putting the card together I layered everything using 3d gel to get some dimension on the card. I cut the sentiment apart so I could space it out bette…

Sparkling Butterfly - Mixed Media Video by Susanne

Hi there!

I'm sharing a mixed media tag today. My focal point on this tag is a lovely sparkling butterfly!

I used the Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo BigZ die and cut it from cardstock that was covered with doublesided tape. After exposing the sticky, I covered it completely with WOW! Sparkles "Jade". This is my favourite way to add glitter to a die cut. To add texture I used the coordinating embossing folder and run it through my Big Shot.

I recorded the complete process for you. Enjoy the video:

Thank you for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful week!

Happy Birthday gift & card video tutorial by Ola

Hello Guys

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy my project for this months challenge - Melt it!

This month I have decided to create a Happy Birthday gift- ring and handmade card to go along with it.

Here it is:

For my card I have used a light turquoise colour card stock to create my card blank and I die cut  the top panel using a scalloped rectangle nesting die.

WOW sentiment stamp set offers a great selection of sentiments. I picked the one that reads ''Have the Sparkliest birthday ever!!'' and heat embossed it using Metallic Silver Regular Embossing Powder.

To create my butterfly embellishments, I have melted ''Melt it!'' ,Primary Bluetiful Regular and Mint Macaroon embossing powders before adding my mixture to the 3D butterfly moulds. Just before adding my mixture to the moulds I had sprinkled a bit of WOW Sprinkles called ,,Twinklebelle''

While the butterflies were setting I used Simon Says Stamp ''Brush Strokes'' st…

Wild about you - a card by Riikka

Hello everyone! Are you excited about the new products? I know I am! I just love the Metalline Powders, they have such a gorgeous shine! In this card I created to you with a tutorial I mixed some of the newbies to some of the oldies and I really like how the card turned out!

For the blooms I used the "Metalline Perfect Plum" and "Primary Parma Violet" as well as Melt-It Powder. For the background I used both "Metalline Greengage" and "Hero" embossing glitter together with gel medium. And do you know what I learned? That if you really quickly show the heat tool to the Melt-It shapes, you get the shine back! But do you want to know just how I made the card? Please see the tutorial below! 

Step 1. I started by making the embellishments. I used the "Metalline Perfect Plum" and "Primary Parma Violet" for the colors and mixed them with the Melt-It Powder. The mold is "Pansy". I also made some little drops which I then la…

Melt It Embellishments - By Jo Herbert

Hello papercrafters, Jo here with a fun, simple and sweet card playing with the Melt It's and heart moulds.
This is the first time ever that I have played with the Melt It embossing powder and boy oh boy it was super fun, easy and beautiful.
The possibilities are endless and with the range that WOW Embossing has to offer on their glitters, powders and sparkle collection. So many pretties so little time.
For today's card creation I have used the heart mould to create my own embellishments for the card. 
I have mixed the Melt It powder, Coral Beach sparkles premium glitter & Primary Apple Red Super fine. 
To start the process I first pinched the tin foil tray to create a nozzle, to this I attached a pair of tweezers so that I don'r burn myself with holding or touching the tin while heating from the bottom.
I placed the heat tool underneath the tin foil tray until most of the powder is melted. The tip I found is that if I do this first I don't get any of the powders …

Heart Planner Clips And Charms by Jaine

Hello there, it's Jaine here and I'm so excited to show you my project. I got quite carried away with it so there are lots of photos. You may need a cup of tea for this one!

Like a large number of people I'm a planner girl and anyone in the planner community will tell you that we do love our clips and charms. We change them as often as our socks sometimes.

When I first read that this months theme was Melt It I knew I wanted to make planner clips. I love making my own and this was an opportunity to make something a bit different.

I chose a few bright colours some with sparkles included in them and I think the results are so pretty.

For the dark heart charm I started out with a half teaspoon of Hot Gossip added to two teaspoons of Melt It powder.

To make my heart into a charm I needed a loop pin. If you can't find one of these in your craft store then it's easy to make one from a piece of wire. I made a little hook in the end to stop it from pulling out of the hear…
