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 t

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 sund


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.

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. Sarah xxx UK Shop US Shop

Card with Ombre embossing on diecuts

Hello,friends! 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 Tea ,  WL06R Colour Blend - Mint Macaroon ,  WL07R 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 embos

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.
