Silver and Gold - a pair of cards by Riikka

Hello there! Can you believe it's already December and soon a new year starts? This year has gone by so fast! A lot of great experiences and fun crafts along the course of the year! To celebrate the change of the year, I created a pair of cards. The other one of the pair is done using silver tones and the other using gold. Can you see how much the color effects the mood?

When thinking of new year and especially the change of the year, the first thing that came to my head was fireworks! So I wanted my cards to be shiny and speckled with glitter! I used Fab Foils for the first layer and then added embossing powder on top using "Go Figure" stamp. I thought that number theme went well with the change of the year theme. I also used the Freehand tool to doodle some rings around the focal point, embossed a couple of die cut snowflakes and added glitter splashes using Sparkles.
If you want to see how the cards were made, please see the video below!

Merry Wishes with Dana

Hello, WOW! friends!

It's Dana and I'm back with holiday card today.

To start, I stamped Studio Katia Poinsettia Border onto cold pressed white card stock using WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad. I sprinkled WOW! Metallic Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I then colored it with watercolor paints.

While it dried, I heat embossed sentiment from same stamp set onto black card stock using WOW! High Heels and Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I cut them out suing scissors and craft knife.

I die cut background panel and added watercolor wash smoothly. Once it dried, I splattered watercolor paints with clean water here and there.

I then die cut poinsettias using coordinating die. I popped up all elements and finished off this card.

Hope you enjoyed today's card. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Folk Art Cards by Jaine

2019 has gone by like a whirlwind, but along the way there have been many things to celebrate with WOW! as well as many blog hops with some fantastic companies. In December the team are bringing you a few designs using some of our favourite products from this year's blog hops and this has to be one of my favourite stamp designs. It's from a stamp set called Cottage Garden by Newton's Nook Designs and I adored it the moment I saw it! Full of folk art images the possibilities for patterns are endless.

For our Facebook challenge using silver or gold this month, I used the same stamp set arranging it in a square formation. This is easy to do with small stamps and gives you that Scandinavian Folk Art look which is very effective at Christmas.

Here's a simple way to do it. Draw a grid onto a piece of card and use this to stamp the images onto.

To achieve different colours, I stamped and sprinkled embossing powder without heating, leaving it altogether to heat set! This avoi…

Christmas Baubles with Karen Reategui

Hello friends! Today I’m sharing this Christmas card over WOW! Embossing Powder Blog and I’m featuring the WOW! Christmas Baubles Stamp Set. I’m so proud to say that this is the first stamp I have designed for WOW! Embossing Powder. It was released last October at Hochanda TV Show. This Christmas Baubles Stamp Set is available at WOW! UK shop now.

Let’s shine! I started by stamping the smallest bauble, stars and snowflakes using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed them with WOW! Metallic Gold Super Fine Embossing Powder.

Then, I colored the images using Copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I applied WOW! Embossing Pad on top of card and then added WOW! Pearl Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter with my fingers to create the look you see on the card.

Additionally, I die cut the word “Celebrate” from Birch Press Design several times and I created a stacked die cut to heat emboss using WOW! Sugared Almond Embossing Glitter and added a last coat of WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder for a g…

Gold Sparkle Christmas Plaid with Gemma

Today I'm sharing a simple and elegant Christmas card design, with some beautiful embossing powder and glitter.

I love the look of tone on tone embossing. I took a panel of Lawn Fawn Gold Rush cardstock and stamped the Hello Bluebird Cozy Plaid background stamp over the top with clear embossing ink. I then embossed the stamping with WOW Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing glitter. The cardstock has flecks of gold in it too, which tones in so well with the embossing glitter.

I added my gold embossed panel to my card base, then embossed a greeting from the Hello Bluebird Bold Holidays stamp set with Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder. 

Next, I die cut the Merry coordinating die from the Hello Bluebird Bold Holidays set. I die cut this 3 times from white card, layering them together to get a stacked sentiment. On the top layer, I inked it with clear embossing ink, then embossed it with Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder.I adhered the silver letters to my card to finish.
