Rose Gold foil card by Ola

Hello Guys ! It is Ola here for WOW embossing powders and I am back with other Youtube video tutorial. For this Month challenge ''Foils'' I have created a Rose Gold foil Greeting card. I have started this card by die cutting a  scalloped edge  rectangular piece out of pink pearlescent card. During the video tutorial I will show you how to create your own pearlescent card if you don't have any. You can die cut a scalloped edge rectangular piece and heat emboss it using Wows new range of embossing powders called Glintz. In my case I have used Rose Gold Glintz Embossing powder and the result is stunning. For step number two I have used a floral stamp and stamped it across my card. Next I have used a Wow bonding powder and set heated in the same way as any regular embossing powder, but making sure that I have applied foil while the bonding powder is still warm. Remember to leave it till it is completely cool down before peeling the foil off and of we go!

Adding Foils to Ephemera's or Embellishments - Jo Herbert

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to today's blog post about adding foil to your ephemera's.  With the use of the Wow Embossing pen and bonding powder by drawing on the ephemera's I was able to add detail with foils for today's card creation. I first selected which die cuts I wanted to possibly use on my card then I drew on the detail I wanted to add with the embossing pen. Once I have added the details to the die cuts I poured all over the die cuts the bonding powder. Once heatset I quickly place the foil over the top while in its molten state.  TIP: - Let the foil sheet cool down over the top before peeling away from the bonding powder. For today's project I have use the Fab Foil Violet to match the die cuts and paper pack. The sentiment "Banner Bits" from Avery Elle has been stamped with Ranger Distress Oxide Broken China ink.  To embellish the card off I have used the coordinating enamel dots. Here is a You tube for you to watch

Altered paint palette by Riikka

Hello you Wow fans! Is it spring in your parts of the woods already? Or even early summer? Here in Finland it starts to look like spring!  I'm in a spring or even summer kind of mood and going for flowers and candy colors all the time. For this post I created something with flowers, yes, but the color scheme isn't the most summery of them all. I actually first thought to use white gesso instead of black... but I just love how the black really lets the metallic touches shine and shows the colors!  Can you believe that all the colors in the palette are created with embossing powders and foil? On top of those I only used black gesso and silver wax, but all the turquoise and green shades are of embossing powders!   I created a step by step tutorial to this piece. This time there's quite a few steps so let's get started! If you want to see the pictures bigger, just click them to see more details.    Step 1. Grab a tube or jar of black gesso and p

Foils and stencils by Jaine.

One really cool way to achieve a distressed look with your foils is to use a stencil.  It's as easy as using a stamp and all you need extra is a piece of cut and dry foam or a stencil brush to help you. You could tape down the paper and the stencil to stop them both from moving while you add the embossing ink through the design but I like to live on the edge as you can see. With the Bonding Powder added to the ink you can see how random I've been. I wanted the background to be more distressed so deliberately didn't ink through the whole of the stencil. After heating the bonding powder I added the foil and look how it shines in the sunlight. For my card I used a pre-inked piece of card and used a contrasting colour of foil for vibrancy.  I also added a heart which was cut from a double sided sticky sheet and foil added to one of the sticky sides. I mounted this onto the card with a few sequins and some metalic thread. TIP :  If you find

Foils, Foils & more Foils

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to a very fun blog post where I went "Foil" crazy as I found playing with them rather addictive. I paired the foils with Catherine Pooler "Faithful Flutterings" as this was a great layering step stampset and ideal for this foiling technique.  I have created a You tube for the above card . The below card is very similar the the above just changed the location of the butterflies.  The below card I have used Shaded Lilac Distress Ink and Violet Foil. I kept it rather simple as I have used the larger butterfly and I didn't want to take away the focus on the technique.  The below cards I used the Swoop Stencil from Catherine Pooler and the texture paste and glitter combo I have used in a previous post. I hope you enjoy today's inspiration creations with foiling.  Head over to the WOW Embossing Tutorials Page to see some of our video creations -  https:
