Die cut embossed elements with Ashlee

Hey my WOW! friends...
Ashlee here with you today and I've got a new card to share with you using a mix of fabulous WOW! products!!

I wanted to create some embossed die cut elements for this space themed big wishes birthday card so I used a die from MFT called Blast off and embossed each piece of the die cut with WOW! powders....
Here is the list of WOW! embossing powders I used to create these rockets!!

I love the super fun effect the WOW! bang embossing powder gives to the body of the rocket and of course I needed to use Metalline flame for the flames coming out...

In the bottom corner of this picture you can see my second WOW! embossed rocket that I made using the other pieces of my die cuts...

I find it easiest to emboss die cut pieces by starting off with a piece of cardstock and covering it in WOW! embossing ink, cover in the desired embossing powder, tip off the excess then heat emboss....
Once it has cooled a little I get a piece of baking paper to place over the top just so that…

Own Your Story - a mixed media tag with Riikka Kovasin

Hi there! It's Riikka here to share a project with masculine theme. I somehow have felt like a fish out of water when it comes to masculine makes, but with these two video projects I made for this month it was quite the opposite! Maybe it's because both of them are made with a vintage, grungy twist.
Today I'm sharing with you a metal and jeans inspired project and a bit later in the month we go to the woods. Both of the projects have a vintage photo on them - here I thought the man would be a sheriff or a bounty hunter from the Wild West, thus the jeans. And the other one, well, he was a lumber jack. 

I started this project by making some metal looking embellishments. I really like to make dimensional projects and Melt-It powder and silicone moulds work wonders in such conditions. To make my embellishments grungy looking instead of using just one powder in casting I mixed some "One Hundred and One" into "Platinum". That way the mixture had some darker …

Retro Birthday Mix with Gemma

Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the WOW Facebook challenge theme this month, which is Masculine. I've gone with a retro vibe for this card with fun bold stripes of embossed colour.


I began with the background. On a panel of white card, I used masking tape to mask a diagonal stripe. I added WOW clear embossing ink, then embossed the line with WOW Pastel Yellow embossing powder.
I repeated this process twice more, above and below the yellow line. I used WOW Primary Apple Red and Oasis embossing powders. I then added stitching detail to the panel with the Lawn Fawn Just Stitching Double Rectangles die set, before adhering the panel to a card base.

Next, I stamped the large cassette tape image from the Concord & 9th Mix Tape stamp set. I stamped the solid layer with a grey ink, then stamped the line image from the stamp set with clear embossing ink. I embossed each line separately, following the same three colours as my background. I also stamped the 'Birthday Mix'…
