Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a fantastic Christmas project that I created using one stamp set in three different ways. At first you may think this process is difficult but it's not, it was fun! Take a look at my card: 

On this card I used the stamp Secret Garden from WOW. This is a beautiful background that I love because their flowers are bold and very detailed. I used it to:
  1. Stamp tone to tone - over the card base
  2. Stamp with heat embossing over the second layer
  3. Stamp with emboss resist on the pine.

For the first step, stamping tone to tone, I simply inked the stamp with the WOW Embossing pad and stamped over the card base. The color of this is crumb cake and the stamped image obtained  is the same tone, only a little  darker. 

The second way was stamping the Secret Garden image over a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using WOW Embossing Pad and WOW White Pearl Regular Embossing Powder. I just melted the powder with the WOW heat tool and cut the entire layer with a decorated Cross Stitched Rectangle Die Cut. 

On the last option I used the Emboss resist technique. First I stamped the Secret Garden Image over a piece of Very Vanilla card stock using WOW Embossing Pad and WOW Metallic Copper Regular Embossing Powder. I melted the powder with the WOW heat tool and applied Distress Ink over the stamped image in two different colors, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron. Then I cut the pine using a die cut and pasted over the second layer using dimensionals.

To finalize the decoration I added a holiday ribbon and and a die cut word and pasted the entire decorated layer over the stamped card base. As you can see the possibilities are endless and you can create so many things using only one stamp set!

One Stamp 3 Ways Mini Canvas Topper Trio

Morning everyone! It's Fran here with you today and I hope you are all in fine fettle.

I hope you are all in fine fettle. Today's offering for you today is once again in miniture form - yes I'm addicted teeny tiny pixie projects!

These are a set of mini canvases which I've had in my stash for a good long while which I decided to use as card toppers. In keeping with this month's blog feature I had used one stamp three ways, with my chosen one coming from the Pick 'n Mix set.
Do you recognise which one it is?
 For the first topper I prepared the background with gesso and paint, then stamped the circular stamped randomly with black ink. I added die cut chipboard on top to create depth and filled the recesses in with embossing powder (Mandarin, Black Ebony and Clear Gloss), using glass beads for texture. I have a bit of a thing for skulls and adore this wooden cut from Alter This which I pimped up with gesso, fine liner pens and more micro beads.

The simplest topper of the trio has the stamp utilised as a flower by cutting away lined "wedges". I mixed this up with paper flowers plus a couple of pieces of lace then painted over water colour ink and sprinkled White Puff embossing powder which I melted to created a 3D mottled effect.  
The last canvas topper is a mixture of many different bits and pieces I had laying around. I do love to use these up on cards, great way to waste nothing! The background for this one started with a layer of gesso and net material which I pressed in whilst still wet then covered with Midnight Dream, Silver Stratosphere and British Summer embossing powders and melted. The circle has been stamped onto thin metal with a clear ink and Black Ebony powder to create this industrial looking little embellishment. For the other details I've used torn paper, washi tape, cotton, mis-matched gems and small pieces of WOW Melt It! foil tray. 

I finished off with a phrase we should all heed: remember to play....

I hope you've found some inspiration to use with your stamps, have fun and be creatively free!

Hugs until next time

Let's Get Festive

Good morning crafty friends, I hope all's well in your crafty worlds! It's that time again where I get to use lots of fabulous WOW! products and create something for the blog challenge. This month the challenge is to use one stamp in three different ways.

I decide to use the Let It Snow stamp and I started by stamping snowflakes for the background in Opaque Bright White powder which I then gently inked. I then created a shaker element and used Teal Fab Foil and bonding powder for the falling snow.

Finally, I stamped a sentiment on vellum with Metallic Silver powder and added snowflakes either side which I stamped then triple embossed with Clear Gloss powder.

The possibilities are endless with this challenge, I hope you all have a lot of fun with it.

Hi WOW's fan. This is Laurence (laury55) today to show you a triptych. On each panel I included a different technique with the same stamp.

On the left one, I created a background where I stamped with the same stamp from the Flights of Fancy stamp set. I cut out some images and covered the hat with 2 coats of clear Gloss ultra high embossing powder to add interest.

For my second technique I stamped the same pattern on a separate sheet of paper and heat embossed it with WOW paprika.

The third technique is a combination of the 2 previous techniques: heat embossing and repetition of the same pattern. I used watercolor paper and cut out a second sheet of paper of the same dimension. I die cut a circle and used it as a stencil to stamp and heat emboss with WOW opaque bright white. With my second sheet still on top of the watercolor paper I added color with distress ink. The stamped leaves will resist to ink and you will color a circle with your "stencil". 

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

Pastel New Year card

Hello, dear friends!

Flower Card by Susanne.

Hi everyone.

It's Susanne writing today and I'm sharing a flower card. Our theme this month is "One stamp in three ways". So I decided to oick one of the Hey Little Flower images and use it differently.

I started by creating my pieces:
1. I created my background. I stamped the image with black permanent ink to colour it with watercolours.
2. I created a smaller piece where I embossed the image with Bright White powder. I wanted to colour the whole piece. The embossing pops up as it resists the watercolour.
3. I cut out one single flower, which was embossed with the Colour Blend Mint Macaroon and coloured with watercolours, too.

Finally I put the card together and added a sentiment.I adhered the single flower with 3d foam pads to make it pop.

Thank you for stopping by today.
xx Susanne.
