Glistening Radial Hearts

Before I get started with direct to paper embossing, I like to refresh my ink pad with the WOW! Embossing Ink Pad Refill, Conditioner, & Freestyle Tool.

Simply roll the tool over the ink pad to reink and ensure you get great coverage and ideal sticking power! Don't be shy when reinking, I start with swirls, then horizontal and vertical stripes to reink the pad.

Next, I inked up a 4.25 x 5.5-inch card panel in circular motions and heat embossed with Taffeta Pink and Sugared Almond. Now, the teal embossing powder I haveI didn't have a teal glitter embossing powder. So, a one to one mixture of Glassy Ocean and Glisten Changers created an excellent option.

Isn't that just the prettiest color palette? It's soft, bright, and sparkly and I love the parts where the colors blend.

I heat embossed one color at a time double-checking the pattern with a white Altenew Radial Hearts Cover die-cut. Then I glued on the cover plate die-cut and added a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Just Because Word Mix 2.

Hot Gossip Radial Hearts

This time I heat embossed an entire card panel with WOW! Hot Gossip glitter embossing powder. I die-cut the embossed panel with Altenew Radial Hearts Cover Die saving all the hearts.

Instead of using the cover plate die-cut on the card I used it as a template and glued down some of the hearts.

Hot Gossip embossing powder is a mix of red, pink and stunning gold glitter. Check out how it catches the light!

More sentiments from Just Because Word Mix 2 finished off the card. No embellishments are necessary for these glitterific cards.

WOW! Sensational Stripes

Stencil stripes are another great way to create repeating patterns. Check out this post & video featuring Taylored Expressions 1" Stripes Stencil Set.

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…
