Happy Birthday gift & card video tutorial by Ola

Hello Guys Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy my project for this months challenge - Melt it! This month I have decided to create a Happy Birthday gift- ring and handmade card to go along with it. Here it is: For my card I have used a light turquoise colour card stock to create my card blank and I die cut  the top panel using a scalloped rectangle nesting die. WOW sentiment stamp set offers a great selection of sentiments. I picked the one that reads ''Have the Sparkliest birthday ever!!'' and heat embossed it using Metallic Silver Regular Embossing Powder. To create my butterfly embellishments, I have melted ''Melt it!'' ,Primary Bluetiful Regular and Mint Macaroon embossing powders before adding my mixture to the 3D butterfly moulds. Just before adding my mixture to the moulds I had sprinkled a bit of WOW Sprinkles called ,,Twinklebelle'' While the butterflies were setting I used Simon Says Stamp '&

Wild about you - a card by Riikka

Hello everyone! Are you excited about the new products? I know I am! I just love the Metalline Powders, they have such a gorgeous shine! In this card I created to you with a tutorial I mixed some of the newbies to some of the oldies and I really like how the card turned out! For the blooms I used the "Metalline Perfect Plum" and "Primary Parma Violet" as well as Melt-It Powder. For the background I used both "Metalline Greengage" and "Hero" embossing glitter together with gel medium. And do you know what I learned? That if you really quickly show the heat tool to the Melt-It shapes, you get the shine back! But do you want to know just how I made the card? Please see the tutorial below!  Step 1. I started by making the embellishments. I used the "Metalline Perfect Plum" and "Primary Parma Violet" for the colors and mixed them with the Melt-It Powder. The mold is "Pansy". I also made some little drop

Melt It Embellishments - By Jo Herbert

Hello papercrafters, Jo here with a fun, simple and sweet card playing with the Melt It's and heart moulds. This is the first time ever that I have played with the Melt It embossing powder and boy oh boy it was super fun, easy and beautiful. The possibilities are endless and with the range that WOW Embossing has to offer on their glitters, powders and sparkle collection. So many pretties so little time. For today's card creation I have used the heart mould to create my own embellishments for the card.  I have mixed the Melt It powder, Coral Beach sparkles premium glitter & Primary Apple Red Super fine.  To start the process I first pinched the tin foil tray to create a nozzle, to this I attached a pair of tweezers so that I don'r burn myself with holding or touching the tin while heating from the bottom. I placed the heat tool underneath the tin foil tray until most of the powder is melted. The tip I found is that if I do this first I don

Heart Planner Clips And Charms by Jaine

 Hello there, it's Jaine here and I'm so excited to show you my project. I got quite carried away with it so there are lots of photos. You may need a cup of tea for this one! Like a large number of people I'm a planner girl and anyone in the planner community will tell you that we do love our clips and charms. We change them as often as our socks sometimes. When I first read that this months theme was Melt It I knew I wanted to make planner clips. I love making my own and this was an opportunity to make something a bit different. I chose a few bright colours some with sparkles included in them and I think the results are so pretty. For the dark heart charm I started out with a half teaspoon of Hot Gossip added to two teaspoons of Melt It powder.   To make my heart into a charm I needed a loop pin. If you can't find one of these in your craft store then it's easy to make one from a piece of wire. I made a little hook in the end to stop it from p

Greeting Card with Paper Flowers by Susanne

 Hi everyone. Susanne here today with a mixed media greeting card with 3d paper flowers. I used melting powder mixed with Sparkles, Embossing Powder and Brushos to create the centers of my flowers. I will tell you all the details in my tutorial... Here are the step by step instructions: 1. I cut a stencil from Mylar (stencil material) with a Tim Holtz Mixed Media die. I used the Embossing Ink Pad and pressed it onto the stencil to get a impression on my card background. After that I embossed it with three of the brand new Metalline powders from WOW! (Himalaya Musk, Kiwi Krush, Perfect Plum) To get this effect I just sprinkled some of the first two powders onto my image and covered the rest with the last powder. This is an easy technique, which you can do with all kinds of different powders.  2. I coloured the background with ColourCraft Brusho Mists. 3. I used watercolour paper that was inked with Distress Oxides and cut different paper flowers. I use stylu
