MARIPOSA COLORED EMBOSSING CARD

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!

  1. This is very pretty Martha and I love the variation of colour on the butterfly, the birds in the background, and the sentiment. The large leaves border work beautifully over the top too. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
