Wow! Changers Mixed Media Tag

Hi everyone! Carisa here from Inky Fairy Designs and I am so excited to be on the blog and YouTube channel today to share more Wow! Changers amazingness with you. I thought it would be fun to also share some great embossing techniques with a mixed media tag. Today, along with the Wow! Changers Kit, I will be using Oasis and Crusty Copper (from the Seth Apter Metalz trio) embossing powders. I hope you enjoy seeing how versatile all these things work together in my mixed media art! For a full process video, please see the end of the blog post.

I stamped this butterfly on white card stock with Wow! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing ink and then sprinkled and heat set the Oasis Embossing Powder undiluted. I absolutely love this gorgeous turquoise color.

Then I created my lightening effect with the Texture Wow! Changer. I loosely measure 1:1 ration of the embossing powder with the changer into one of the empty mixing jars provided in the kit. I stamped another butterfly and embossed it with this mix. You can see here how the color is instantly transformed and much lighter. What you can see is the amazing gritty texture it also created. I love this effect in my mixed media!

I used a previous lightening effect mix I created with Rose Glintz and the Wow! Changer Glisten on a third butterfly. I love the holographic glitter in this changer! It created the most gorgeous peachy color from the Rose Glintz, too. I sprinkled it on the flowers as well for some more dimension on the petals. With the Mixed Media Embossing Brush, I also randomly added some marks on the tag and embossed more of that powder. I love how translucent it looks and you can still see all the yummy stamping and paint beneath.

Lastly, I embossed my sentiment on white cardstock with the Crusty Copper powder. I love the mixed texture and colors in this powder. It embosses sentiments beautifully every time! It was the perfect compliment to the purple, turquoise and peach of my background. I also used the Mixed Media Embossing Brush to add this powder to the edges of my tag.

You can find my full process for this tag in this video on the Wow! Embossing YouTube channel. You should definitely subscribe to this channel because the entire team is totally inspiring and you will find something new shared all the time!

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day - do something that makes you happy!

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…
