VIDEO: WOW! Mixed Media Brush & Die Cuts

Use the WOW! Mixed Media Embossing Brush to heat emboss your die cuts. This brush, inspired by Seth Apter, is great for large areas and intricate dies.

Heat embossed die cuts take center stage with these two clean and simple handmade card designs. Watch here or in HD on YouTube.

Intricate Die-Cuts

The WOW! Mixed Media Embossing Brush is the perfect tool to emboss part of an intricate die-cut. For this card, I only wanted to heat emboss the flowers.

Ordinarily, I would press the die-cut onto an embossing pad. In this case, I couldn't easily avoid inking up the leaves without masking them. The embossing brush allows you to precisely add gel where you need it.

I inked up the flowers and heat embossed with WOW! Turkish Nights embossing powder. This powder is stunning with flecks of gold, rose gold, and purple glitter. Gorgeous color and shine!

I heat embossed the sentiment with Turkish Nights as well. I'm always impressed with how cleanly WOW! glitter embossing powders emboss sentiment stamps.

Sentiment Die-cuts

We've probably all heat embossed our fair share of sentiment die-cuts by pressing the piece into the ink pad or rubbing the ink pad on top of the die-cut. Try the Mixed Media Embossing Brush next time and keep your fingers nice and clean.

Simply paint on the embossing gel with the brush and heat emboss as usual. I love the gold dipped look of this die-cut. I ink blended the background with Altenew Mountain Mist Crisp Dye Ink and Heffy Doodle Dotty Lottie Stencil.

I can't get over how gorgeous Turkish Nights is. Turns out it coordinates beautifully with Nuvo Champagne Shine sequins from my stash.

I hope you enjoyed these clean and simple heat embossed cards today. We'd love to see what you're creating. Tag us on social media @wowembossing and @notableink.

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…
