Gold Embossed Backgrounds with Ankita

Hello friends! 

It's Ankita from Glitter Doodles and I am so excited and equally honored to write my first post on the WOW Blog as a WOW Design Team member. As you know, our monthly theme is 'rainbow' for the month of August 2018 and I used various techniques for my rainbow card today.






I love working with background stamps and gold embossing powders from WOW. I used Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing powder from WOW with Watercolor Stripes Background from MFT Stamps to create a gorgeous metallic gold background against white. It had a very wedding invitation elegant vibe to it. 

I water colored a rainbow in a heart shape and die cut it using Lawn Fawn Heart Stackables Lawn Cut Die. I took a strip of vellum about three quarters of an inch wide and placed it across the rainbow heart. 






I die cut the word Love from Die-namics Huge Love Die four times and stacked it one on top of another to give it dimension. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock using Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and heat embossed using Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder. I placed both the die cut word Love and the sentiment on top of the vellum strip. 




I foam mounted the heart on the gold embossed background panel, which I trimmed to 4.5 inches by 4.5 inches. I took a 5 inch by 10 inch piece of Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb cardstock and scored it midway to make a top folding card and foam mounted the panel onto the cardbase.  

I finished the card off with some gold sequins what were 6 mm, 4 mm and 2 mm. 

That's all for this card. I hope you enjoyed reading about it! 

Have a lovely day, 

Ankita

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 a

VIDEO: Three Ways to Use an Embossing Pen with Jenny Colacicco

Do you have the WOW! Embossing Pen?  Even if you do, do you know what to do with it? Well, if you have been wondering, I can help. I have three different ways to use the embossing pen in today's post and for me it was a game changer.  I've had the pen for a while and just never picked it up except to maybe add a dot of ink where I hadn't fully heat embossed. The techniques I'll show you today (and there's a video!) will make this pen a must have tool in your craft room! My cards also feature the newly released Gemstone Trio embossing glitters (and some other recently released powders now available). I'm going to show you how I created these three cards, all of which feature a different way to use the pen - you can watch the video below or over on the WOW!
