Mixed Media ATC Trio

Hey sweet crafty friends!

I hope you are all doing well. It's Fran with your dose of WOW! inspiration and I have some micro mini wonders to share with you today in the form of ATC's (artist trading cards). I have used a selection of  WOW embossing powders to create a variety of textures and effects.
And here is my set of three ATC's together. I wanted to create a set which matched in terms of colour scheme and accents but were all individual.
The base for this one stared out as an old postcard which I cut down prepared with gesso. I stamped the circular stamp from the Spark 'n' Shine set all over the card then adhered pen nibs and pieces of crumpled Copper Fab Foil onto one of the stamped circles to fashion the main feature of the card. Textures have been created with the use of micro beads, Copper Ultra High and Blueberry Cheesecake embossing powder which I melted over the beads.  
For the second ATC I used the same postcard, again cut down to form the base card and added gesso to prime the surface once again. using some mica spray to which I added Green Pearl and Peppermint Tea embossing powders which gave a beautiful subtle shine to the background then just layered embellishments and highlighted with Ultra Rich Gold powder.

The resin heart embellishment has been made using the WOW! Hearts mould and Melt It powder mixed with Silver Stratosphere embossing powder. I've finished the card off with a border stamp from the Pick 'n' Mix set.
For the final card I used a piece of scrap packaging as a base which I layered with denim scraps, tiny wooden shapes, old brads and gems. I covered with gesso to allow my paint spray to adhere properly then added Copper Ultra High, Chocolate Caramel Pearl and Primary Blue Tang powders into the wet spray once again and melted. For the main embellishment I have used a leave stamp from the Flights of Fancy stamp set which I stamped onto card and coloured with a paint spray. To create a beautiful iridescent two tone effect I melted Pearl Green powder on top of the wet spray.

Have a wonderfully creative day

Mixed Media Butterfly Tag by Susanne

 Hi my dear crafty Friends!

It's Susanne writing today and I'm sharing a mixed media tag. Yes, I love creating tags!!! Why? They have a super size to test new techniques, you can create cards with them, use them simply as a tag on a gift, add them to your art journal or planner or only keep them as a reference for your self.

I used the lovely "Layered Hearts" stamps together with "Blueberry Cheesecake" powder on my background before I added any color. The tag is colored with liquid watercolors. The embossing acts as a resist. I used the group of tiny butterflies from the "Mariposa" stamps set and the words from the "Just Saying" set.

The butterfly is one of the Sizzix Butterfly Duo. I pressed it softly onto the Embossing Pad and added "Iced Silver" Glitter. It's colored with liquid watercolor. The happy is a die from CUTplorations. I used chalk cardstock from DCWV.

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a nice sunday.
xx Susanne.

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a colorful card that I created using the stamp set Mariposa designed by Maya Isaksson and WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. Take a look at my card:

Creating this card was a fun time:
1. Cut the base of the card using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2"
2. Cut a second layer of Very Vanilla. The size is 4-1/8"x5-3/8".
3. Cut the die cut Leafy Border using Old Olive card stock.
4. Stamp the butterfly images from the stamp set Mariposa over the second layer using Splendor #10 Ink. This is a craft ink in Circus colors.
5. Cover your images with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and melt it with the WOW Heat Tool.
6. Stamp the words from the stamp set Just Saying by Marion Emberson using the same ink and covered with the same embossing powder. Melt with the WOW Heat Tool.
7. Paste the Leafy Border die cut over the left border of the stamped layer.
8. Paste the decorated layer over the card base using dimensionals.

I hope my project inspires you to create, use your WOW Embossing Powders and don't forget the traditional colors or try the new colors - they are simply gorgeous and perfect for any occasion.

See you soon!

An Early Autumn

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and having a productive month! For the "Anything Goes" challenge  this month I decided to get my inspiration from the changing seasons and created this Autumnal card.

I started by stamping leaves from the Flights of Fancy Clear Stamp Set across teal coloured card which I then embossed with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I then coloured around the leaves with ProMarkers and added a sentiment from the Just Saying Clear Stamp Set.

I then made a cute heart embellishment using Bonding Powder, Metallic Copper and Iridium powders melted and poured into a heart silicone mould.
I also added dots with an embossing pen then sprinkled Iridium Embossing Glitter on top for a bit of sparkle.

I hope you get the chance to join in with the challenge this month, I will look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Card with Ombre embossing on diecuts

It is Victoria on the blog today, with a card for our September Challenge -  the theme is "Anything Goes". Recently I have received my DT pack with the new products and wanted to play with them. New line of Colour Blend is made of an pearlescent base with a mixture of other colours and they complement each other beautifully.
I wanted to get ombre look for my die-cuts, so I inked a piece of white cardstock with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and poured some WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powder on top, than WL08R Colour Blend - Peppermint TeaWL06R Colour Blend - Mint MacaroonWL07R Colour Blend - Banana Split to the bottom, making a stripe of each colour and heat set with WOW! Heat Tool - Euro
Then I die cut a feather and border out of this ombre paper. 
Also I stamped on a white cardstock these adorable bubbles - Pop (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set - with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and embossed with WL06R Colour Blend - Mint Macaroon. Oh, how I love this perfect mint colour!
Also I stamped some flowers from Hey Little Flower (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set with black pigment ink and covered them with WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake . The reason I used black ink is getting more contrasting outline for water-colouring the petals. I fussy cut the flowers and added them to composition.

Card by Laurence

Hello, this is Laurence today with a tutorial using WOW embossing powder. I would like to show you a card where I used 2 different techniques with embossing powder but without using any embossing ink.

Draw lines with a glue pen, apply your embossing powder when the glue is still wet and heat emboss. Glue pens may be found in different width and you may also use it to write text for example and sprinkle with embossing powder.

For my second technique, I applied acrylic paint and sprinkled embossing powder before the paint dries out. Punch circles or use your dies. I used embossing glitter to add sparkle and texture but you may try with different colors of embossing powder and acrylic.

I hope you will be inspired and play along on our current challenge.
