Create your own glitter paper with Jo


Hi all, Jo here and welcome to todays blog post where I make my own full panel of glitter cardstock. 

I also played with Pink & Main Butterfly cover die which I have die cutted the whole panel.

To start the process I pressed the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink directly on the white cardstock coating the whole panel.

I then generously poured the Cloud 9 embossing glitter all over the panel which I then heat set it with the NEW Embossing Tool. 



Put your hands up if you have purchased this heat tool yet? 
The Design Team are having an absolutely fun time with it and can not express who much we love it. 

Once I have heat set the embosing glitter I place the cover die directly on top and die cut te panel. 
Let me tell you this panel cut like butter dtraight through the glitter. You can see in my process video that it also came out really easy out of the cover die. 


I then placed the sentiment in the MISTI tool and lined this up with the rectangle die cut. I used a sof grey tone ink which I stamped twice. 

I finished the creation with cutting out a butterfly with pattern paper which I adhere down with foam tape.

Check out my process video to watch this this card making unfold.


Hugs to you all.
Jo

''Sandwich Stencilling'' technique by Ola

''Sandwich Stencilling'' technique by Ola

Hello there! It is Ola back with not one , not two, but three cards made using a non traditional way which I call ''Sandwich Stencilling'' technique. Yes that is correct ''Sandwich Stencilling'' ?!
The reason I have called this sandwich stencilling is because I am using a stencil and of course sandwich represents the way I place the stencil between cardstocks. 

For my cards today I will be using one stencil , but will show you how to achieve three completely different looks.

Here are my cards :






I have started my first card by securing my stencil above cardstock and using WOW embossing pad, I inked the entire space to ensure full coverage.

Then I placed another cardstock directly on top of the inked stencil and firmly transferred embossing ink to the top panel. I removed my top cardstock and replaced with third piece. Then I secured them together and run it through a die cutting machine. In this case I transferred ink to the top panel as well as the embossed stencil design into my cardstock.

Time to apply embossing powders and set heat using a WOW embossing heat tool.

Shimmering "three for one" cards | Zsoka

Hi there crafty friends,

Zsoka here with you today with some new card inspirations.

This month at WOW! Embossing Powder our theme is shimmer. So we are using anything that shimmers basically!

I always start out with one card to be honest, but then I hate throwing away anything so often I end up with more cards. This was the case with these cards too!


Do you know the Glintz powders? They are super pretty! They feature subtle shades of mixed golds and silvers. I selected three of them for my cards today:
I've covered 3 sheets of white card stock that were slightly bigger than A2 size with embossing ink. I then added a different color powder to each and heat set them. I repeated the process to get a smooth finish. Unfortunately these pictures don't do these powders justice! They are so shimmery and gorgeous!!!

I then used the Birch Press Design Butterfly Garden layering dies and die cut a different layer from each of these embossed sheets. I adhered them on a white, top folding A2 size card base. I embossed a sentiment with Bright White Regular embossing powder on black card stock and attached it to my card front. Done!



I was left with a lot of butterfly and leaf cut outs and had no heart to throw them away...So for my next card I layered up 3 big and 2 small ones and added some machine stitching to them. I should have used longer stitches because with these small ones some butterflies were torn (I glued them back together). 


I used a stencil to add some embossed stripes. For this I used the Metallic Copper Embossing Glitter. I then glued down the butterflies and splattered some copper ink here and there.  Finally, I added some clear crystals and another thin strip of black card stock with white embossed sentiment.



For my third background I used the same stencil as before but this time I added Clear Hologram Embossing Glitter. It's sooo pretty! But boy is it hard to photograph haha! Well, with my skills anyway. I just didn't get an angle where my camera picked up the different colors very well. But believe me, in person it is so stunning and special!

I then glued down the remaining scraps: leaves and two butterflies. I added copper ink splatters, a bunch of clear crystals and my sentiment and done!



Maybe you can see some of the hologram in the next two photos but they are bad quality:



I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration and will give some of these powders a go! I promise you'll love them!

Oh, before I forget! Have you heard that there is a brand new, dual speed heat tool in the WOW house?! I'm a proud owner of this beauty and I can tell you, it's a game changer! I didn't have the previous tool from WOW so I can only compare it to my old heat tool and there is a world of difference! I generally stay away from heat embossing on acetate and even vellum because I hate warping. But I quickly tested them with this new heat tool and there's hardly any warping! I'm so impressed! If you're looking for a great heat tool, look no further! Check this out:


GORGEOUSNESS am I right?! I'm super excited about it if you can't tell haha!

Anyhow, thanks so much for stopping by today! I wish you a wonderful day!

Guest Designer .....Michelle Short

 

We are super excited that Michelle has another creation to showcase on our blog.
Please make her feel welcome and hope you enjoy her card creation as much as we do.
 
Hello there, Michelle here and I am delighted to share another card here on the WOW Embossing Powder blog. Today I have a Christmas card to share that uses the beautiful Oyster Glintz Embossing Powder.

 
To start my card off, I took a panel of watercolour paper and masked off the edges to leave a smaller rectangle open in the middle. I took Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Festive Berries and Worn Lipstick and blended these on to the panel with an ink blending tool. I spritzed the piece with Iridescent Spray, removed the masking tape and set aside to dry.
 

I took the poinsettia image from the Altenew Festive Poinsettia stamp set and stamped this with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink on to a piece of vellum. I applied WOW Oyster Glintz Embossing Powder and heat set. The Oyster powder is a pretty shimmering cream colour and I thought this would work beautifully with the reds in the background. The image was then die cut out with the coordinating die. I added the background piece to a white A2 card base with tape runner and then added the poinsettia on top with small dabs of Multi Medium Matte glue.
 
 
I took the 'Merry Christmas' sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type set and stamped this on to black cardstock with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Ink. I applied WOW Opaque Bright White Superfine Embossing Powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Jewels to the card.
 
Here is the video showing how I made the card:
 


That's it from me for the mean time. I do hope to be back guest designing with WOW again in the future, though. A big thank you goes to the WOW Embossing Powder team for having me and thank you for visiting the blog today. Have a great day!

Ombré Glitter Die Cut Words with Ankita

 Hi everyone! Today I am sharing a card I made using Neutral Ultra Shimmer Powder and Metallic Gold Rich Regular Embossing Powder from WOW.

To start, I stamped the image which is from Concord and 9th Wonderful Florals onto a piece of black cardstock  using WOW Embossing Ink and heat embossed using the Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder from WOW. I colored the flowers in using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. I trimmed the panel down to 3.75 inches by 5 inches.

On a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock, I ink blended Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey and added a layer of Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder onto it and die cut the word Wonderful from it.

I foam mounted the letters on the panel. I layered it with some orange cardstock and fall patterned paper from Lawn Fawn and added some natural twine.
 
I mounted the entire panel on an A2 sized top folding cardbase made from Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb cardstock. 



That's all for this card. I hope you liked the card.
