Video with Verity: Creating Dip Dyed Heat embossing




Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! In today’s video, I have 3 cards where we will be creating dip-dyed heat embossing and it is such a fun and easy technique to do. As well, I’m sharing a few tips to help you along the way so you can easily try it out next time your in your craft space. These cards also feature the fantastic trio from WOW! And Seth Apter called Cosmic – which have some love blue mixed embossing powders. So let's get crafting!

Creating Dip Dyed Heat embossing written tutorial:


 

 


Technique 1: Dip-dyed card



For this first card, tear a piece of Gina K Ocean Mist cardstock for a more organic look . Next, flip you card over and apply WOW! clear ultra slow drying embossing ink by lightly wiping the pad over the edge. The lighter the better to prevent any harsh lines from the pad showing. 


For this card, use the Sea of Tranquility from the Comic Trio as this pairs well with the cardstock. As it heat sets you get a lovely turquoise mix and it is gorgeous! Now, you can repeat inking and adding heat embossing to build up the embossed area, but can just stick to one application if you prefer.


Once you're done with all the heat embossing, use your blending brushes to apply Aquatini Catherine Pooler ink  and blending off the embossing powder, fading the colour out. To intensify the colour, also go in with Daydream ink, going back between the colours to get a smooth blend. After this is complete, you'll get a lovely blend and transition from the embossing powder to the cardstock giving a dip-dyed look to the card panel.


For the sentiment, die-cut the Heffy Doodle Thanks out of white card and layer this up 3 times. To add a little more interest to the sentiment, add clear hologram sparkle over the top to add a touch of sparkle. The embossed panel was foam mounted onto a white card base before the sentiment was added.  Next, stamp a sentiment from Altenew Hello & Hugs stamp set in Hero Arts soft granite ink, trimming this down to foam mount onto the card front. 



Technique 2: Dip-dyed sentiment


For the second card, we are going to create a dip-dyed look to a layered die-cut sentiment.  To begin with die-cut the Altenew Fancy Thanks die out of Ocean Mist cardstock 3 times. Next, using liquid glue, adhere these together.

 


Once your layered die-cut is assembled, use your embossing ink again to use the direct to paper method to apply ink to the bottom half of the sentiment. Don’t worry about it being perfectly straight, the more organic it is the more it will look like it has been dip dyed. 


For this sentiment, use Space Dust embossing powder from the Cosmic Trio. It has a lovely blue and grey mix and really pops off this light cardstock when heat set. 



To create the background panel, use the Altenew Pressed Leaf die on a white card panel. This does not cut the leaf design out, but partially cuts the leaves for texture. The panel was foam mounted onto a card base made from Gina K Sea Glass cardstock, and add a few foam pads behind the leaves to give definition. Just remember to not put foam pads behind the leaves where the sentiment will set.




Technique 3: Dip-dyed die-cuts


 

Start off by die-cutting the Altenew Monstera 3D die out of Ocean Mist cardstock To add a little colour to some of the pieces for more depth we can add some ink blending.  Take you negative die-cut piece, flip it over and then use small pieces of purple tape to put on the back of the open spaces.

 


 

Now, when you flip it over again you can insert one of the die-cut pieces and you can easily ink blend onto the die as it is not longer fiddly. Next, use your blending brushes to apply the same colour inks as before to the die-cuts. Now, what’s great is you can get these smaller ink blending brushes, allowing you to add ink to smaller areas to create shading in smaller areas. 




 

For the heat embossing, as these pieces are quite small and fiddly, get a piece of scrap cardstock and apply some repositionable tape. Next, place the die-cuts onto the card and you can now easily apply you embossing ink and powder before heat setting as you have a larger surface area to work with. Again, use the direct to paper method to apply ink before covering with Blue Moon Powder from the Comisc trio. This has lovely shades of dark blues with so clear powder mixed in too. Once they’re all heat-set, add small pieces of 3D adhesive foam pads behind the die-cut to layer up adding a little more dimension. 





To assemble the card,  stamp the Altenew Pinstripe background stamp in Catherine Pooler Mint To Be ink and trim this down to adhere to a card base made from Sea Glass cardstock. To create the scene, temporarily position a few of the leaves to determine where to add the pot, and foam mount this onto the card. Next, use liquid glue to adhere the leaves down, slotting them into the pot. Another sentiment from the Hello & Hugs stamp set then adhered to the front. 




All 3 cards were then finished off using  sequins from Lucy’s cards using Gina K Connect glue and my Pick-up-tool to adhere them down. 


I had so much fun making these cards, and I love how they turned out. This Cosmic Trio has such beautiful colours, but then blue is my favourite colour so I could be a little bias there! So, do you like the dip-dyed look? Will you be giving it a go? Let me know and I’d love to know which is your favourite card!

  1. I would be hard pressed to choose a favourite as they are all beautiful Verity and the blue tones with the partial embossing on the torn background, the sentiment and the cheese plant are all gorgeous. If I had to choose I think I would opt for the partially die cut leaves with the partial embossed sentiment as the leaves just lifting out of the card are so pretty. 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:



STEP ONE

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…
