DIY Glitter Paste with WOW Sparkles..... By Jo Herbert

Hi WOW Paper Crafting Peeps, Jo here bringing to you a very exciting new technique. Can you imagine making an array of your very own glitter paste?  Well today I show case a technique by using the WOW Sparkles range mixed with Ranger Texture Paste in a Transparent Gloss.  I started off with ink blending some Lawn Fawn Stitched Heart die cuts with Ranger Distress Oxide inks which what I will add my layer of glitter paste on top off. I made sure the inked die cuts where thoroughly dry but heat setting with my heat gun. I then moved on to making the paste. To pick up the paste from the jar I used a plastic spatula which is the tool of choice to also mix and combine the sparkles powder and paste.  The WOW crafting mat is really good to protect your surface as well as use as a mixing pallet. Check out my You Tube on the mixing process.  For the card base I have used white top folding cardstock and black cardstock to die cut the Avery-Elle Horizonta

Glimmering ATCs by Riikka

Moikka! It's Riikka here today sharing a step by step to some sparkling spring ATCs. My inspiration for these was the color combo of  the "Mint Macaroon"  and  the "Opaque Pastel Yellow"  powders. That combo of the minty green and pale yellow was so fresh and spring-like that I just had to use it!  Above you can see the ready triplet of cards. What looks like kraft cardstock in the first glance is actually triple embossed cream cardstock! The earthy, greyish color of  the "Primary Goose"  powder acts as the perfect base for the sherbet styled colors coming on top. But if you want to see how the cards were made, please see the step by step below!  Step 1. Start by cutting ATC sized pieces of cardstock and triple emboss them using the "Primary Goose" . I used a light cream shade of cardstock and turned it almost into a kraft cardstock with the powder.  Step 2. Add a subtle pattern to the cards by using the "Tropic

Too Sparkly? Never!! by Jaine

What's not to love about this months theme? Everyone needs some sparkle in their lives at some point. I've tried to embrace the theme without going totally over the top, well I had to have a little restraint before it ended up looking like an explosion. The stamp sentiment started me off, it's such a cute quote the rest came quite easily. I started with a few die cut shapes of flowers and leaves and selected some of my favourite sparkly powders and glitters.  I loved embossing the shapes with glitter powder especially mixing and matching colours together. When it came to covering the flowers I mixed Clear powder with Sparkles to create my own sparkly embossing powder. I like to experiment and mixing coloured powders with coloured glitters produced some beautiful results.  The butterfly is what came out from the blend. When putting the card together I layered everything using 3d gel to get some dimension on the card. I cut the sentime

Sparkling Butterfly - Mixed Media Video by Susanne

Hi there! I'm sharing a mixed media tag today. My focal point on this tag is a lovely sparkling butterfly! I used the Tim Holtz Butterfly Duo BigZ die and cut it from cardstock that was covered with doublesided tape. After exposing the sticky, I covered it completely with WOW! Sparkles "Jade". This is my favourite way to add glitter to a die cut. To add texture I used the coordinating embossing folder and run it through my Big Shot. I recorded the complete process for you. Enjoy the video: Thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week! xx Susanne. Supplies:
