Embossing glitter stencil backgrounds with Ashlee

Hi everyone, It's Ashlee here and I'm so excited to be guesting with WOW for the month of April....

For my first card I am showing how you can use stencils to create sparkly backgrounds with your embossing glitters. It is super easy to do this technique and it's a great way to be able to use any of your powders and give that WOW factor to your cards!!

For this one I have used the beautiful powder metallic silver embossing glitter on a light grey cardstock with a stencil from Heffy Doodle called stoney maloney. 

- Firstly cut your card base to size and then place a piece of removable table on the under side to use to hold your stencil in place once you place it over your card base.
- You can either use the WOW embossing pad directly over the stencil or use an ink blending tool to pick up the embossing ink and place it over the top of the stencil.

- Remove your stencil and cover in whichever embossing glitter/powder you choose, tap off all the excess and place back into the container

- Last step is to heat set with your WOW dual heat gun!! and there you have a beautiful background!!

Here is a picture of products used to create this card...

Thankyou so much for stopping by the WOW blog today and checking out my card, I really hope you will feel inspired to get your stencils out and use them with your powders!! 

Happy crafting everyone, Ashlee
