Rose Glintz Floral Card by Jo Herbert

Hi all, Jo here welcome to today's blog post where the theme for this month is "Metallics".

To show case a metallic colour from the Glintz range I have chosen Rose Glintz.  I have to say this colour is just so stunning and looks like liquid pink rose gold when heat embossed.

I have chosen Pink Fresh Studio Floral Fancy Cover Dies 1 & 2.  The bottom layer is the layer which I have coated with the Ultra Slow Drying Clear Embossing Ink by placing the ink pad directly on the cardstock. I pressed fairly hard during this process as I wanted a good layer of ink so the rose glintz was all over the detailed parts of the die cut.  This layer was adhered directly over the top folding white card base. 

For the top layer I have also used a white card stock which leaves the Rose glintz peaking through.

The Pink Fresh Studio Word Series : Believe sentiment has been heat embossing with 
Super Fine Bright White Opaque Embossing Powder on American Crafts shrimp cardstock foam mounted on the card front. 

For the add on sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp Pale blush ink stamped on White cardstock then mounted on the shrimp cardstock for an added layer adhered down with liquid adhesive.

Here is my cardmaking process from my YouTube channel.

Holiday Mini Glittery Greeting Card - Gift Card Holder

Hello everyone is Yasmin here. And, today I would like to share with you these 2 mini trifold Holiday greeting card/gift card holders.
To begin with I started by die cutting the Envelope Die out of black cardstock. Then, I heat glitter embossed the liner of both of them by using a Background stamp and Gold and Red embossing glitter powders.
For, the mini greeting cards I kept it simple by creating simple mini white trifold cards. I stamped one sentiment from the Coffee stamp set that I use to create them along with the coordinated dies.
As you can see, I kept it simple the front of the mini cards too. By using the coffee cups stamp and the coordinated dies. For the cups I heat glitter embossed them with the same embossing powder that I used for the envelope liner. Because, there is no Holiday without "Glitter." Then, I stamped 2 of the sentiments on the coffee cup holders that I had colored with copics alone with the leaves and berries.

Happy Crafting That's All from Me Today!

A touch of luxury!

Hi everyone
Its my turn on WOW! blog today! I have a touch of luxury to share with you all using WOW! beautiful Metallic range of embossing powders!

First up is my absolute favourite - Platinum! I just love the colour when it is heated and goes raised and shiny and depending on the colours you put with it - it will have either a warm tone or a cooler tone. So Platinum really works with everything - well as far as Im concerned it does!

I have used it here with my, Julie Hickey Designs, just launched Christmas Joy collection of stamps - this is Christmas Joy which I have embossed with Platinum and then coloured in using Zig Clean Colour pens and a water brush. I created the background using my Floral Tree stamp set - this time stamped in black and coloured again using the Zig pens and a water brush.

Up close to see all that gorgeous touch of luxury from the fabulous Platinum!

I also love Metallic Silver embossing powder, especially if I want to use cool colours to add colour to my design.  This time I have used my Winter Scene stamp set and embossed the houses, trees and sentiments using silver. I coloured in, again with Zig pens but used different tones of blue.

Up close to see that gorgeous embossing!

Lastly, who doesn't love a bit of gold - well Gold Rich Pale to be precise - I adore this gold!
I have used it with my Elegant Noel Stamp set, embossed and again coloured with Zig pens and a water brush.  When you get the light on that embossing it looks so luxurious, gives a great border to colour up against and really does add a touch of luxury to your cards.

Up close to see the finer details...

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you will go treat yourself on the WOW! Embossing Powder website to some beautiful Metallic embossing powders - if you do please add the code: WOWDTJHI (capital i) and you will receive a lovely 10% off your order!! I'd love it too, if you tick the 'heard about it from Julie Hickey' button <3

Have a lovely day

''Layering with WOW'' card by Ola

Hello there and welcome back!
For this month theme ''Metallic'' I have made card by incorporating Silver, Gold and Platinum Embossing powders as well as using technique, which I call ''Layering with WOW''

Here it is

I have started my card by stamping and embossing diagonal lines using background stamp and Silver WOW embossing powder. After set heating, I have cut the panel slightly smaller than standard card.

To create flower I have used Althenew floral layering stamp and different shades of yellow/ orange embossing powder. For the leaves I have used same stamp and different shades of green embossing powders.

To create my sentiment I have used sentiment ''Believe'' ,coordinated die and Platinum embossing powder.

After assembling my card I have added Echo Park ''Good day Sunshine'' enamel dots and card is finished.

Wildflower Bouquet Metallics with Gemma

Layering stamp sets are a great way to add a touch of embossing to your images. I used four metallic embossing powders from WOW to add the detail layer to the flowers and leaves on my card today.

I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Hello Bluebird Wildflower Bouquet set using distress oxide inks. This floral set has three layers for the flowers. For the final layer, I used WOW Super Fine Metallic embossing powders in gold, copper and platinum.

I especially love the detail of the Metallic Silver Super Fine embossing powder on the leaves. 

To turn this into a card, I layered the florals onto a card base over a gallery frame from Hello Bluebird. I also added some of the Hello Bluebird Silly Birds and a sentiment from the same set.

The metallic embossing looks so pretty as it catches the light, and gives the stamped images some great texture and interest. 

Have a lovely day,

Metallic Patterned Paper on Vellum with Ankita

Hi friends! 

Hope you are having a great day! Thank you so much for stopping by this blog post. I always love embossing on vellum. It has a very delicate and elegant feel to it. I created a metallic patterned paper with embossed texture on vellum using WOW Metallic Platinum Super Fine embossing powder. It was so much fun and the results were beautiful. In my second project I used the Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine powder and heat embossed on Woodgrain texture cardstock to created a textured pattern on textured paper. 

I started off by die cutting the leaves using Stitched Leaf Wreath from Simon Says Stamp in colored cardstock and ink blending on them using Distress Inks. I splattered some white gouache and black watercolor paint for some added texture. 

Next I took a panel of heavy weight vellum and stamped the fall images on it using WOW Clear Embossing Pad and heat embossed using Metallic Platinum Super Fine Embossing powder. It has a beautiful sparkle and a very smooth finish to it, the powder. It melted so easily, the vellum didn't warp even a bit! 

I took a piece of woodgrain cardstock and trimmed it to 4 inches by 5.25 inches and trimmed the vellum piece to be slightly smaller. I adhered the vellum on top of woodgrain panel and stuck the leaves on it using some liquid glue. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the sentiment on black using WOW Clear Embossing Pad and heat embossed using WOW Bright Opaque White Embossing Powder. 

I die cut the word Thanks using the Thanks die from Simon Says Stamp using white woodgrain cardstock four times and shadow in rust color and stacked it all together. I placed all the pieces on an A2 sized top folding card base.

For the second card, I stamped the Diamond Pattern Background stamp from Simon Says Stamp onto a piece of woodgrain textured cardstock panel and heat embossed using WOW Gold Rich Super Fine Embossing Powder and followed the same process of wreath building and sentiment die cutting.

The embossing powders melt like butter and have a very fine and creamy finish. I was very impressed and satisfied with the end results! 

I hope you enjoyed reading about the cards I made. 

Have a great day!

Leave a little Sparkle wherever you Go

Hello everyone, Yasmin here on today's blog I would like to share with you my favorite technique when comes to create a sparkly cover background card. For that I have chosen the Metallic Platinum Sparkle Embossing Powder and the Folk Dance Waffer die by Simon Says Stamp to create this card.
To begin with I started by die cutting an A2 side card panel out of  heavy weigh white cardstock.
Then, I used the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad to coat the whole top surface. Before, I heat embossed it with the Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing powder.
Once, I was done with the heat embossing. I die cut a white square by using white cardstock and a stitched square die by Lawnfawn.
Last but not least, I stamped one of the sentiment from the Born to Sparkle stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink. And, to finish it up. I adhered the heat embossed background with liquid glue to a white card base. Then, I adhered the backed of the stamped square with foam mounting tape to add a little bit of dimension and I added a few little gold stars as embellishments for contrast.

That's it for today!
Thank You and Happy Crafting,
