Video with Verity: Repeat heat embossed die-cut inlay

Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! Today’s cards uses heat embossing with die-cut inlay. The die-cut inlay I have used on these cards has quite a simple shape as I wanted to create cards that provide inspiration for this months WOW! Embossing Fabs Facebook group challenge which is repeating patterns. However, you can adapt this technique for any die-cut inlay you have in mind, so do not be afraid to experiment. What’s more, to add a touch of sparkle, I’ve used an embossing glitter to add a little more shine!

Repeat heat embossed die-cut inlay written tutorial:


To create the heat embossed die-cut inlay, we need to first create an embossing glitter cardstock to die-cut from. First, use your WOW! Clear ultra slow drying embossing ink to apply ink directly to a piece of cardstock before covering it with Aquamarine embossing glitter from the Gemstone Trio from Tracy Scott.

Heat set the powder from beneath the cardstock and if you want to intensify the colour, you can add another layer of powder. 

To create the die-cut inlay pattern, use the Altenew Nesting Frames die. Before die-cutting, place them on a mat with the cutting side facing down, and make sure they’re evenly spaced apart. Next use some low tack tape to temporarily attached them together so you can die-cut multiple times and ensure all the frames are the same size.

Run the nesting frames through a die-cutting machine with your embossed glitter cardstock. Without removing the tape, run the dies through your die-cutting machine again, but this time with some white cardstock and teal cardstock as well.

For the inlay, we need to adhere the die-cuts down, so add some double sided tape to a piece of scrap card. Next adhere the frames down, alternating between the heat embossed die-cuts and the white card. Once I have popped all the frames in,  trim off any excess of the scrap card. 
For the floral stamps, use the Hero Arts Dreams Will Blossom stamp set, and heat emboss these in Opaque Bright White embossing powder onto watercolour cardstock. After it is heat set, you can colour the images in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. 
Before assembling the card, add a little more interest to the background by adding paint splatters using the Gansai Tambai Starry Colors palette.

For these cards, add the die-cut inlay panels off to one side over hanging the edge and foam mount the florals onto the panels. Next, use a guillotine to them trim off the excess that over hangs. The sentiments on these cards are from the Dreams Will Blossom stamp set, heat embossed in Opaque Bright white and Primary Ebony embossing powder before fussy cutting them out.
Lastly, the cards are finished off with Lucy’s cards Sprinkles Glamorous Circles in gold in a variety of sizes.

  1. I love the look of the nesting frames with every other one sparkly heat embossed in that pretty colour Verity, and the flowers and leaves look beautiful over the top, and finished with a lovely sentiment too. 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…
