Major Rockstar Canvas

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share my fabric project.  I made a small canvas of my daughter playing one of her guitars.  I first applied some Spackle to the canvas and after that was dry I ran my versamark ink pad around the edges and on some of the peaks of the texture.  Apply the embossing powder, I used Sierra sunrise, and then proceed to decorate as desired.  I love the embossing powder and the texture together I think it gives really nice dimension to my canvas.

WOW embossing glitter- Sierra Sunrise
Flowers- Prima
Twine- May Arts
Sheet Music

I hope you have enjoyed my fabric post today, you still have a few more days to link up for some cool prizes.

Canvas Fun

I have had so much fun making this canvas.  I was very lucky to receive a melting pot from my amazing boss Elena for Christmas  :-)  I have not stopped playing with it.    So for this project I have made a canvas using the WOW molds and Embossing powder.

This months theme is Fabric,  I added a panel of burlap and  gesso to the canvas.  I used distress paint to give the back ground some colour.  Once it was dried I added embellishments . Which I made with embossing powders :-)

For this flower I made with Black Ultra High Embossing Powder and added some Blue Perfect pearls to it.

I made the branches using the Ultra High Gold Embossing Powder and  a cake mold along with the leaves.  For the leaves I used a mixture of Green Wow Embossing Powders.

To attach them to my canvas I have used really tackie glue,  you could used a heat gun too.

When I had finished with a colour in the melting pot I tipped it out onto a non stick, heat resistant craft mat.  Sometimes it came out in drops (orange) which made the perfect dew drops.  If you shake the pot around a bit when it comes out you can get a string effect (green)

I used these to add texture to my project.

For this last photo you can see some of the detail the embossing powder creates when pouring into a larger mold.  I love this as it gives the branches a real life look.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project, feel free to leave a comment.  I love to read what you think.  Remember each month we have a challenge and you have a great chance to win some embossing powders.  So if you have a project or time to make a project that uses embossing powder and fabric please link it up so we can all admire it.  Thanks for popping by.

Faux Leather Wallet

Hi everyone! It's Sandie here today with my take on this month's challenge - 

I found the tutorial for this over on Splitcoast Stampers. I used Kraft card, put through the cuttlebug with an embossing folder and then heat embossed with clear gloss. In the tutorial you do these steps before stitching the patterned paper inside but I found it very hard to get it through the machine, and found stitching before heat embossing was much easier. 

For my fabric I added some ribbon and ribbon sliders to each side. I finished with a metal button.

Upcycled Felt Glasses Case

Hi All.

Chris here again with this month's "Fabric" theme.
For this month's theme Iv'e upcycled a hand-made Felt Glasses Case by adding some flowers made from the WoW silicone moulds and embossed leaves made from card.

Firstly, I folded a piece of cardstock in half and cut out one side of a leaf. When opened this made both sides of the leaf look the same. I then embossed the leaves with green embossing powder and whilst still wet, marked the leaf  viens with a ball point pen.  As the flowers won't stick very well to the felt, I then sewed them on at the base to the felt border and then stuck the moulded flowers onto the leaves with silicone glue. Two flowers were added to the bottom and one to the top of the large felt flower.  I really pressed hard to stick this top one down and waited ages for it to dry but eventually we got there.

To make the actual flowers I melted some pink embossing powder and Melt It powders in a Melt pot and poured the melted powders into the daisy flower moulds to set. I love these moulds as you can use the flowers etc on most of your crafting projects. Why not take a look around and see what you could upcycle by adding an embossed image or two.  Happy crafting.

Products used:
Melt Pot
Silicone mould Daisy
Melt It Powder
Pastel Pink

Just Because

Hi Everyone

Today I'm using the stamp sets 'Everyday sentiments, Vintage Wallpaper, Funky Border and Vintage'   They can be used in so many different ways and have some wonderful patterns and sentiments on them.  Here's my interpretation today, 'RIBBON'  All you need are strips of paper and either scissors for the V end or a square punch to cut the ends .  The embellishment at the top of the card is real ribbon!   This card could be used for any occasion, just change the wording.

I have used Versamark heat set with Apple Red, Ebony Black and Pastel Blue Embossing powders to create the effect.

Happy New Year to you all and hope you will be visiting the blog on a regular basis to see what the rest of the design team are up to.

Take care...Sue

Be you (with a lot of embossing powders)

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to our new monthly challenge.
Irit is here with some  embossed inspiration.
This month we challenge you to use Fabric (any fabric as you can see from my project).

This is a new Mixed Media piece I made for WOW! Embossing powders Fabric monthly challenge.
My fabric is canvas I worked over and I tried to use some different mediums and to add embossing powders over those mediums to see the results.All mists are from LSG.
All chipboards and masks are from Tando Creative and I used black gesso, glossy accents and white molding paste to add a lot of embossing and to check the results.
Well, it works great over the black gesso: we  still see the black colour, but then it gave us a textured look and made the gesso mask very visible.

The " blood drops" over glossy accents are less visible, but still gave a good  textured result.
Adding powders over wet molding paste gave the most visible texture (the outer frame splashes were made this way).

Then both the chipboard frame, words and all arrows were covered with WOW! powders and I really  like this not so perfect coverage. I even added some inking over the edges to make it even more imperfect.
And here is a list of powders I used for this project:
Fluorescent blue
Opaque pastel blue
 Green Pearl
Primary Apple Red
Copper Pearl
 Pearl Gold Sparkle
Now it's your turn!
Play with our monthly challenge- Fabric- and you can win some great goodies. All you need to do is to use heat embossing or one WOW!  other product to enter.
See you next month with more inspiration.
