Shimmering "three for one" cards | Zsoka

Hi there crafty friends,

Zsoka here with you today with some new card inspirations.

This month at WOW! Embossing Powder our theme is shimmer. So we are using anything that shimmers basically!

I always start out with one card to be honest, but then I hate throwing away anything so often I end up with more cards. This was the case with these cards too!


Do you know the Glintz powders? They are super pretty! They feature subtle shades of mixed golds and silvers. I selected three of them for my cards today:
I've covered 3 sheets of white card stock that were slightly bigger than A2 size with embossing ink. I then added a different color powder to each and heat set them. I repeated the process to get a smooth finish. Unfortunately these pictures don't do these powders justice! They are so shimmery and gorgeous!!!

I then used the Birch Press Design Butterfly Garden layering dies and die cut a different layer from each of these embossed sheets. I adhered them on a white, top folding A2 size card base. I embossed a sentiment with Bright White Regular embossing powder on black card stock and attached it to my card front. Done!



I was left with a lot of butterfly and leaf cut outs and had no heart to throw them away...So for my next card I layered up 3 big and 2 small ones and added some machine stitching to them. I should have used longer stitches because with these small ones some butterflies were torn (I glued them back together). 


I used a stencil to add some embossed stripes. For this I used the Metallic Copper Embossing Glitter. I then glued down the butterflies and splattered some copper ink here and there.  Finally, I added some clear crystals and another thin strip of black card stock with white embossed sentiment.



For my third background I used the same stencil as before but this time I added Clear Hologram Embossing Glitter. It's sooo pretty! But boy is it hard to photograph haha! Well, with my skills anyway. I just didn't get an angle where my camera picked up the different colors very well. But believe me, in person it is so stunning and special!

I then glued down the remaining scraps: leaves and two butterflies. I added copper ink splatters, a bunch of clear crystals and my sentiment and done!



Maybe you can see some of the hologram in the next two photos but they are bad quality:



I hope you enjoyed today's inspiration and will give some of these powders a go! I promise you'll love them!

Oh, before I forget! Have you heard that there is a brand new, dual speed heat tool in the WOW house?! I'm a proud owner of this beauty and I can tell you, it's a game changer! I didn't have the previous tool from WOW so I can only compare it to my old heat tool and there is a world of difference! I generally stay away from heat embossing on acetate and even vellum because I hate warping. But I quickly tested them with this new heat tool and there's hardly any warping! I'm so impressed! If you're looking for a great heat tool, look no further! Check this out:


GORGEOUSNESS am I right?! I'm super excited about it if you can't tell haha!

Anyhow, thanks so much for stopping by today! I wish you a wonderful day!

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! Embossing You Tube channel (and be sure to hit subscribe while you're over there! Highlighting Dry Embossing For my first card, I used the pen to highlight some areas on a dry embo
