In today video tutorial I will be concentration on Metalline embossing powders. While playing with new release products, I have noticed that Metalline Himalayan Musk embossing powder is changing colour if you use it on the craft cardstock. So let have a closer look . Here is my card :




I have used WOW embossing ''Secret Garden'' background stamp and emboss with Metalline Himalayan Musk embossing powder on the piece of craft cardstock. Then I die cut rectangular scalloped edge piece slightly smaller than standard card.

I have also stamped and embossed second piece with a 'Secret Garden'' background stamp and fuzzy cut some of the flowers to use as an embellishments at later stage.

Before mounting stamped and embossed piece onto card blank I have covered entire card blank with rose gold mirror card.

I have die cut a tag which I have stamped and embossed with sentiment ''Don't forget to be Awesome'' by WOW embossing powders with a same Metalline Himalayan Musk embossing powder. I have mount the tag and some flower embellishments made earlier onto my card to finish!

" I'm a total tea addict! I tried to learn to drink coffee as us Finns are the heavy users of the beverage but never got through with it. But tea, oh yes, a totally different story! I used a "mug ring" styled stamp in the background and combined tea shades with beautiful teal. To me the Paprika and Honey from the Earthtones were perfect for the tea palette. To give the project some shine, I added a ring coated with Calypso Embossing Glitter. The focal point has a tea cup and the background has even tea on it! "

Jaine  used Wall Art and Hearts and Twine stamps as well as Aztec Glintz and Chocolate Caramel Pearl.

A bunch of flowers card by Riikka


Hello there everyone! It's Riikka here today sharing a flowery card with you. I was planning to do a real summer card but somehow the project took a turn to the autumn side while I was making it. I guess it's the color scheme so just by changing the powders you use, you can make the card filled with exotic blooms or sweet meadow flowers or last blooms of the summer!


The idea to this came from the flower die I used but also from the magnificent new colors of Wow powders. I ended up using quite a few new ones here. If you want to see how I made the card, please see the step by step below! 


Step 1. Make your flowers. Use a flower die or cut by hand some blooms and coat them with embossing powders. I did two coats to all and used new Metalline and Primary powders. You can emboss all the flowers to same color or alternate colors like I did.


Step 2. Add dimension to the flowers by adding white and black powder to the centers. Ink the flower using Wow embossing ink but sprinkle the powder only to the center, not to the whole flower. 


Step 3. Add some glitter to the center. If you want, you can only use embossing glitter but the black and white in the background bring another layer to the blooms.


Step 4. Now that the flowers are done, make some leaves to accompany them. Use a leaf die or cut them by hand and then emboss twice using Metalline powders. I used Kiwi Krush and Greenage in mine. 


Step 5. Do a couple of more elements to the card to be used in layering in the card. Emboss a label shape with Primary Dovetail and a lattice styled, lace-like piece using the same embossing glitter as in the center of the flowers. Dovetail brings a lovely neutral color to the project and using the same embossing glitter on two elements binds them together, makes the card whole.


Step 6. Time to prepare the actual card base - start by stamping text, heat set and then sprinkle white powder here and there. By heat setting the stamping before adding the white powder prevents the powder from sticking to the script.


Step 7. Start to layer the elements you have prepared to your card. Start with some washi tape, twine and then the lattice. Use a stapler to attach the elements. Add then the label and the flowers and leaves. Don't be afraid to hide some of the elements partly.


Step 8. After adding all the prepared elements to the card, make a couple of embossing powder dots to further embellish it. Use a Melt-It cup, melt some powder and drip little drops to a non-stick surface. Glue the dots here and there.


Step 9. Finish the card by stamping the greeting to the tag and mounting the card to a slightly larger piece of patterned paper. Use an ink that is suitable for non-absorbing surfaces as embossing powder creates a sleek, non-absorbing surface. 


There's a lot of preparing for this card but when you have all the elements, the putting together part is really quick! You can even make a bunch of these at one go as it takes almost the same time to prepare eight flowers than four. 

So, have you tried the new Wow colors and products yet? What was your favorite? I really like the deep, rich Metalline colors! Can't wait to play more with those!

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a great week!

Floral Card Set : Jo Herbert


Hi All and welcome to a fun cardset where I make 4 cards using the same background Stamp "Tropical" from WOW Embossing very own stamp collection range.  Links below of our range both from the US & UK stores.

Stampsets - http://www.wowembossingpowder.co.uk/stamps--blocks-36-c.asp

http://www.wowembossingpowderusa.com/WOW-Stamps_c_10.html

I have made  process video of today's cardset. 
Now don't laugh at my video as I am well aware I look like I am performing CPR with my MISTI tool when stamping the background stamp as I have used textured cardstock and sometimes you need that little bit of elbow grease to have a good stamped impression.  hehehe


I love the range of colour powders that WOW Embossing has, you can pretty much grab a colour to match your cardstock or very close to. So for today I have used a tone on tone technique where I match  the embossing powder with  my cardstock as I wanted to create a simple yet effective DIY pattern paper. I wanted my cardset to have a clean and simple look yet with the texture of heat embossing adds that WOW element to this cardset. Pardon the pun.

Once I have heat embossed all these,  I die cut with a range of Studio Katia  dies to create panels for all 4 cards.

I have used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the "Hey Little Flowers" stampset for the floral accents of the cards. I have stamped the "Everyday Sentiments" with the same Distress Oxide inks. 

To finished the card off I have used an array of Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh on all cards. 






Hope you have a great paper crafting day and look forward to reading your comments.

Hugs
Jo
