Mixed Media Tag by Susanne Rose

Hi everyone! It's Susanne writing today and I'd like to share a mixed media tag with you. I used liquid watercolors together with the round mini Gelli Plate to create my background. The "Hey little Flower" stamps add a lovely texture to my background together with the brand new "Banana Split" powder. I pick some gelli prints and emboss the "Flights of Fancy" with "Primary Ebony" powder.   I paint the edges of my tag with a black Gelato. The lovely hearts are created with the "Hearts" mould and a combination of WOW! Melt it Powder "Mint Macaroon" and "Under the Sea". I used some wool from my kids to finish the tag.  The sentiment is from the brand new "Just Saying" stamp set. Thanks for stopping by today! xx Susanne. Products from WOW!

Guest Design Team Post: Marsha Valk *GIVEAWAY CLOSED*

Hi there!  My name is Marsha Valk and I’m honoured to be guest posting here today on the WOW! Embossing Powders Blog! I have a mixed media art journal spread to share with you. It features some of my favourite embossing techniques, like using a stencil or a brayer to apply WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink to a page and then sprinkling on some embossing or bonding powder. Here are the written steps to create the page, but I’ve also created a video for you, so you can see exactly what I did! 1.     Apply an acrylic paint to the paper with a brush or with your fingers. 2.     Stick a couple of the flowers of the Hey Little Flower (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block. Stamp it with WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink and then emboss it with Clear Gloss Regular. 3.     Apply paint over the embossed images, let it dry a little and then gently wipe the paint from the embossed flowers. 4.     Stamp flowers wi

Double Embossing Tutorial a favorite technique

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you my favorite technique using embossing powders. It is double embossing and you can make this using regular card stock or glossy card stock but I prefer the glossy card stock because it enhances the shininess of the powder. Take a look at my card. I created this using the stamp set Mariposas created by Maya Isaksson and the stamp set Just Saying created by Marion Emberson. But let me tell you how you can make this fun technique. 1. Cut a piece of glossy card stock and ink it very well with WOW Embossing Pad . 2. Cover the entire piece with your favorite color of WOW Embossing Powder. I used the new color Banana Split WOW Embossing Powder for my sample. 3. Melt the powder with your WOW Heat Tool . 4. If you consider it necessary, repeat the process to enhance the color. 5. Ink your stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamp it over the embossed piece of card stock. 6. Cover the stamped image with a second

A Summery Make

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well. So, it's been that fun time of the month where I get to create my project for the WOW! Blog. This month's theme was our favourite embossing technique and I went for coloured vellum. I love it as its so pretty and yet so simple! I started by stamping the Secret Garden stamp with a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad on white vellum. I then used Opaque Bright White embossing powder over the top then melted with a heat tool. I then turned the vullum over and coloured the back of the flowers with ProMarkers. I then layered the vellum on white card to really show off the colours and used the Just Saying stamp embossed with Pink Lady opaque powder for the sentiment.  I added a pretty organza bow and placed a small button in the centre that has been embossed with Mermaids Tails Embossing Glitter. I can't wait to see what you all create this month, enjoy! Sarah xxx Where to buy UK Shop US Shop


Hello, this is Laurence to show you my favourite technique or more exactly 2 techniques I love using with embossing powder. I created my background with pigmenst   diluted with water in a spray bottle. I used the two triangles stamps from the "Let it snow" sheet and heat embossed them with WOW opaque bright white powder.   I worked on a separate sheet of paper and used a knife to apply randomly acrylic paint. When still wet I sprinkled some WOW peppermint tea and heat embossed it.   I cut out some triangles and glued them on my background. It is a very easy technique with random results. The title is heat embossed with WOW metallic brass   Inside I have organized all my embossing powders to see exactly which one to use on my project.
