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 around the square adding in some t…

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…

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…
