5 cards in 5 days with WOW | Masking Technique with Embossing Powders



Hello there!
It Is Ola and I am back with my final card for my series of
 ''5 cards in 5 days with WOW ''.
Today I am going to show you how to create a floral card using Masking Technique.

For this cardmaking tutorial you will need:
White Card blank
White cardstock
Gold pearlescent card
WOW Embossing pad
Heat tool
Embossing powders
Floral stamp set

I have started this card by stamping and fussy cutting the  flowers of a scrap piece of paper to create a mask.
Masking technique is used to create illusion that one object is behind the other. I will be creating vision that one of the flower is behind other, as well as my leaves will be behind my bouquet.

Let me show you!



I have stamped large flower on the top left corer of white cardstock with WOW clear embossing pad and gently covered with mask. Then I have stamped smaller flower on top of my mask shifting slightly to the right. When I remove my mask it looks like the smaller flower is hidden behind larger flower.

Lets repeat all steps on other side of cardstock.
When all flowers are stamped and embossed , time to stamp the leaves.
I have covered both large and small flower with mask and stamped my leaves in the way that some of them are stamped directly on the mask and some not. When I removed all the masking I have created illusion that leaves are behind the flowers.

Now is the time to add sentiment and assemble my card. I have used Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp and stamped using black versa mark ink.
I have mounted a piece of gold pearlescent card onto card blank before adding my top panel.
To finish my card I have added pink gemstones in the center of all flower and here we have floral card using Masking Technique.

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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
