5 cards in 5 days with WOW | Emboss resist technique with distress ink

Hello again!

It is Ola here and I am back with card number two in my series of  
''5 cards in 5 days with WOW'' floral cards.
In today's video tutorial I will show you the emboss resist technique with distress ink. This is very popular and well known technique by many papercrafters, but if you newbie and want to learn something new lets get started.




To make this card you will need:
Card blank
White card stock
Background stamp
Clear , white or any neutral colour embossing powder
Heat tool
Distress ink
Flower and leaf die
Ribbon

I have started my card by stamping my background stamp on white card stock piece. I am using WOW ''Secret Garden'' background stamp and Clear Matt Dull embossing powder. After I set heated my stamped image its look very blank and not so visible, but after using distress ink,  magic happens!
Embossed parts will resist distress ink and will remain clear or white depend on the colour of embossing powder you previously have used.

Now my background, to finished I am going to trim this piece slightly smaller than standard card and mount this piece using 3D foam pad.
I have used 10mm double sating ribbon across my card and glued die cut sentiment directly on my ribbon.


To finish my card I have die cut 3 flowers out of burgundy card stock and added to my card using foam pad. Adding die cut leaf and enamel dots in the centers of the flowers will finish my card for today.

I hope you liked it and get inspired.
Please come back tomorrow for more ideas on how you use WOW embossing powders!

  1. What a beautiful combination of the bright red with that gorgeous green Ola, and the resist techique is a great one to give a pretty finish to a card, and putting the die cut sentiment directly on to the ribbon works well too. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
