Gold Embossed Backgrounds with Ankita

Hello friends! 

It's Ankita from Glitter Doodles and I am so excited and equally honored to write my first post on the WOW Blog as a WOW Design Team member. As you know, our monthly theme is 'rainbow' for the month of August 2018 and I used various techniques for my rainbow card today.






I love working with background stamps and gold embossing powders from WOW. I used Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing powder from WOW with Watercolor Stripes Background from MFT Stamps to create a gorgeous metallic gold background against white. It had a very wedding invitation elegant vibe to it. 

I water colored a rainbow in a heart shape and die cut it using Lawn Fawn Heart Stackables Lawn Cut Die. I took a strip of vellum about three quarters of an inch wide and placed it across the rainbow heart. 






I die cut the word Love from Die-namics Huge Love Die four times and stacked it one on top of another to give it dimension. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock using Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and heat embossed using Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder. I placed both the die cut word Love and the sentiment on top of the vellum strip. 




I foam mounted the heart on the gold embossed background panel, which I trimmed to 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches. I took a 5 inch by 10 inch piece of Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb cardstock and scored it midway to make a top folding card and foam mounted the panel onto the cardbase.  

I finished the card off with some gold sequins what were 6 mm, 4 mm and 2 mm. 

That's all for this card. I hope you enjoyed reading about it! 

Have a lovely day, 

Ankita

Blast of Rainbow handmade card by Ola


Hello my Crafty Friends!

Today I would like to share with you my fun card which I call “Blast of Rainbow”.
Here is a still shot



To create this card I have used a standard card base and panel which is slightly smaller then the base. I have also used an intricate die which cuts a circle and blast of droplets .
I have also die cut second panel which I have used as a template.

Then, I emboss center of the base of my card with Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter and using template , which I have made earlier, coloured in droplets using Copic markers.




At this stage I have removed my template and replaced with clean and fresh die cut panel through which you can see rainbow of colour.

To finish my card I have used Happy Birthday sentiment which I have embossed in the centre of my card using Ebony black embossing powder.

Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!

Guest Designer Ardyth




Good morning! It's Ardyth here from MASKerade and I'm excited to be back with another card as this month's Creative Guest.


This time, I was inspired by the current Muse challenge and I made an elegant Christmas card.

I embossed the big, loopy Mama Elphant sentiment with Metalline Kiwi Krush embossing powder - it has a gold shimmer in it that gives my 'greenery' an elegant look.

Next, I die cut two doves (and their wings) and covered them with WOW! Embossing ink before pouring a bit of Mayan Glintz  on their bellies and then covering the rest of them with Inca Glintz. These two powders also have some shimmer and gave the birds a bit of colour and a pearly finish.

I created a mat for my card that perfectly matched the green sentiment, by trimming a panel and then inking up the edges with embossing ink. I poured Kiwi Krush around it and heated it until it was melted and smooth. It's important to have your heat gun quite hot to minimize warping.

I glued that panel directly to my card base, then added my focal panel. I popped up the birds with foam tape.

I created a quick video showing how I made this card, I hope you enjoy it!

Rainbow Ornament Card with Dana

Hello, everyone!

It's Dana from Dana G. Crafts and I'm so excited to be sharing my first card here as a WOW! Design Team member. As you know, our monthly theme is 'rainbow' and I used various techniques for my rainbow card today.


To begin, I pulled out A2 sized bristol paper and ink blended it with rainbow colors of distress oxide inks. I then die cut several circles from black card stock as shown.


I stamped some geometric images from Sparkle & Shine Stamp Set with Embossing Ink and sprinkled Metallic Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder and heat set each of them.



Then, I applied anti-static powder to black card stock and drew some lines using Embossing Pen and ruler. I heat embossed them using same embossing powder with ornament images.


I also heat embossed 'happy everything' sentiment from Studio Katia Birthday Greetings stamp set beside the bottom-left ornament.



Next, I started to make my own embellishments with embossing powders using melting technique. It's my very first time to try this technique and it was so much fun!! For this, I melted Melt-it Powder, Hot Gossip, Coral Beach and Sparkling Snow.


I know most crafters use heat tool or single hot plate for melting embossing powders. But, I was just wondering that my warmer and tealight makes it possible or not, so I tried it.


When I used warmer with two tealights for small ribbon, it took more time than heat tool, but I was so happy that my hands were free during entire process.

So, I used one more tea light and more powders for another ribbon which I used as a photo prop and I think it saved my time to some degree. Oh, I used Pretty Little Bows Silicone Mould for both ribbons.


For mixing powders and creating marbling, I used wooden skewer as shown.


To finish, I mounted embellishments where I wanted them using Ranger Multi Medium Matte (small circle ones) and hot glue gun (ribbon).



I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for joining me today!
