Guest Designer Amy Tsuruta

Hi, it's Amy again from Tsuruta Designs!  I decided to share a project that uses some basic embossing colors.  What are your go-to colors?  Mine are white + black.  Here's a bit of my before prep work:

I picked out some images that have fine details to really show how wonderful the WOW Embossing Powders capture the details.

For those that follow me might know that I'm a coffee-a-holic.  Did you know that owls were one of my first loves?  I use to collect all things owls so when I saw these cute owl images, I couldn't resist picking up the whole collection.  Their eyes are so expressive, aren't they?

One of my go-to sentiment techniques is to heat emboss them on black cardstock with white embossing powder.   The Opaque Bright White by WOW is perfect.
Here's how I was inspired by those cute coffee loving owls:

The Primary Ebony Embossing Powder really makes those guys pop!  See how the sentiment looks on the black cardstock?  I used a cross stitched circle die to cut …

Hello, I love you - a layout by Riikka Kovasin

Heippa and glimmering, glittering July to you from Riikka! This month we are all about embossing glitters here at Wow Embossing Powder blog. Here's my take on the subject! I've been doing several different project types this year but even though I love mixed media really much I still somehow identify myself as a scrapbooker. So for this glitter theme I thought to do a layout with some glitter touches. 

The same applies to glitter as to so many elements in crafting - contrasts heighten each other. So if you want to glitter to glimmer even more, add something mat beside it! So that's why this layout has plain paper elements with the glittered elements, to really emphasize the different surfaces.
If you'd like to see how I made the page and where I used the lovely embossing glitters Wow has in their repertoire in this layout, please see the step by step underneath. To read about the story behind the photo and the page, please continue until the end of the post.

All about Sparkles!

Hi everyone
Back with another card today, using WOW! Embossing Glitter Powders and Oh do they sparkle!

So this is the card I have to share with you today.....Hope you like it! 


It's using Marion's Secret Garden and Just Saying stamp sets with Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter Powder - because it is translucent it will take on whatever colour is underneath, giving endless results and colours!

I used Distress Oxide ink pads for the rainbow of colours.  Stamped the image, using a stamping platform, with the ink pads and then heated it to dry completely.

I then wiped the design with my anti-static bag and re-innked the stamp again with my WOW! Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, sprinkled over the Clear Sparkle embossing powder, tipped the excess off and heated with my heat tool.  And WOW! so pretty, so sparkly!

For the panel I mounted onto my Catherine Pooler Love is in the air postage die, I swiped my embossing ink pad over a piece of white card stock and then added the lines of colours us…

All That Glitters | Zsoka Marko

Hey crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you with my first blog post on the WOW! Embossing Powder Design Team! This month it is all about glitter! Like every girl I love glitter too! My boyfriend however, not so much haha! I didn't even notice how it covered the whole kitchen floor (my craft space is in the kitchen!). Oh well!
For my cards today I used the lovely Posie Fill-In stamps and dies bundle from Concord and 9th. I cut a piece of watercolor card stock and placed it in my stamping platform. I inked up my background stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamped the image. I repeated this once more to get a good coverage.

I poured WOW Bright White Regular embossing powder on it and embossed it.


I then added a light purple watercolor wash so the beautiful white grid is more visible.

It looks a bit splotchy and distressed at this point...The big areas where there's no grid are where the posies will be! Apropos posies...I stamped a bunch of them and embossed them with two different ki…

Bohemian Thank You Card by Jaine

It's that time again when school's out and you might be looking for a thank you card for a teacher, helper or child minder maybe. This card is incredibly easy and looks so stylish and chic with a little behemian touch.
I took just two large flower stamps and stamped right on the edge of a piece of card. I overlapped them slightly making the design look more like a whole.


I embossed with my embossing glitters and love the shine it gives.


I cut the thanks from card and covered that too with embossing glitter and added that to my card front.
To finish I mounted the card onto some mirror card and used some 3D pads to mount that onto the card blank. Just to give it a little more shine I added a few spots of glitter glue in a matching turquoise.

Hot Gossip meets Sunset Boulevard - Oh WOW!

Hi everyone
I've got a simple card for you today using WOW! Embossing Powders Glitter Embossing Powders! Oh boy are they sparkly!!



First I stamped the Pink & Main Hello stamp onto white card stock using my fabulous WOW! Ultra Slow Drying Clear Embossing Padsprinkled some Hot Gossip Glitter Embossing Powder over part of the image, tapped the excess off and then covered the rest of the Hello with Sunset Boulevard Glitter Embossing Powder.  Tipped the excess off again and used my heat tool to melt the powder from underneath.  This really does give a much better, smoother finish to the embossing - great tip from Marion - thank you!



I then created a random stamped background on my card blank using Honey Bee Stamps - Spring Blossoms, again with Hot Gossip and Sunset Boulevard Glitter Embossing Powders.
I die cut an outline in black card stock and die cut my glitter embossed stamped Hello, using Pink & Main Hello diethat matches the stamp set.  Look at all that sparkle!!

I layered up …
