Emboss Resist Watercolor | Wow Rose Glintz Embossing Powder

Hi everyone! It's Laura Volpes here and today I am back with my third post on the Wow! Embossing blog this month! The card I wanted to share with you today features some emboss resist watercolor with the Wow Rose Glintz embossing powder. Sooo pretty! There is also a video tutorial at the end of this post, showing the step by step process for the creation of this beautiful floral card.

The first step was to heat emboss the images in the Wallpaper Art stamp set by Altenew with Rose Glintz embossing powder. I then painted them with Altenew watercolors and die cut them with the coordinating dies. The cardstock I used is Canson XL watercolor cardstock.

For my card base I have several layers. The bottom layer is some watercolor cardstock that I die cut with the Studio Katia Darling Ribbon and Frames Dies. For the black panel in the center I used the Studio Katia Dotted Patterns Set 1 dies, and for the thin frame the Dotted Square Frame Die, also by Studio Katia. I turned the thin frame into a metallic one by heat embossing it with Rose Glintz embossing powder.
Lastly, I created the external black frame by combining the Darling Ribbon and Frames Dies with the Dotted Square Frame Die.

I added some interest to the black panel with some droplets, that I created with Spectrum Noir Sparkle and Metallic inks, as well as some dots I added with a white gel pen.
As a last step, I heat embossed one of the greetings in the Wallpaper Art stamp set by Altenew with white embossing powder on black cardstock to create my sentiment banner.

As I mentioned, there is also a video for you, in which I guide you through the creation of this emboss resist watercolor card, featuring the Wow Rose Glintz embossing powder! 

Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a great day!



  1. A very pretty card Laura and love the contrast of the beautiful embossed and coloured flowers against the black background and love the spattering and added dots. x

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:


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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
