5 cards in 5 days with WOW | ''Double Embossing'' Technique


Hello my crafty Friends!
Thank you for stopping by and today is day three for my 
''5 cards in 5 days with WOW'' video tutorials.

During today's tutorial I am going to show you technique which I call ''Double Embossing''.

To make this card you will need:
White card blank
White card stock
Embossing folder
Embossing pen
Embossing powders
Vellum

I have started my card by embossing a piece of white card stock with floral embossing folder. This is my first embossing for this card and it is called dry embossing. 
For the next step you can use an embossing pad and create full covering look , such as card I have made below


or embossing pen and cover only raised parts of dry embossed piece.


TIP: You must be very patient and precise in order to achieve best possible result. Remember to do all the leaves before repeating your steps with a flowers.

For my sentiment I have use Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp and stamped using Staz On black ink on heat resisted vellum.

To add shimmer to my sentiment I have used Green Grass clear embossing powder.

To mount my sentiment to a card I have creased edges of vellum and secured at the back of my embossed piece. Then I added my creation to the card blank.
Here we have ''Double Embossed'' technique card.

Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to come back tomorrow for card number four.
Happy crafting everybody!

  1. Gorgeous cards Ola and the first with the added flower is very elegant, but the second is so bright and beautiful with all the dry embossing coloured with the embossing pen and then heat embossed in those two fabulous red and green colours, and adore the sentiment heat embossed on the vellum which looks great wrapped around. Thank you for the video which explains it perfectly. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
