VIDEO: Take Control Of Glitter Avoid The Mess

Do you have glitter phobia or avoid crafting with glitter due to the mess? Instantly take control of glitter and avoid the mess with DIY glitter paste.

All the details to take control of your glitter and avoid the mess are in this short cardmaking video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you're there we'd love it if you like, subscribe, and share it with your crafty friends.


No Mess Glitter Technique

The trick to instantly take control of glitter is to trap it in texture paste. Here I used Ranger Translucent Gloss Texture Paste. Simply put some paste on your craft mat, pour in glitter, and mix with a spatula or palette knife.


There are no fly-aways when creating homemade glitter paste and clean-up is a breeze. Once you have your DIY glitter paste mixed up, spread it through a stencil. Here I created WOW! Copper Fire and Graphite Sparkles glitter paste and spread it through the Altenew Bubble Wrap Stencil.


Check out those gorgeous colors! My favorite part is where the Copper Fire and Graphite intermingle. For the sentiment, I die-cut Stardream Metallic Copper cardstock with CZ Design Love You Die. I was amazed at how well the copper cardstock coordinated with my DIY glitter paste. 

Check the $1.99 Sale page over at CutCardstock for 5x7-inch metallic cardstock perfect for die-cuts and card panels.

Shading With DIY Glitter Paste

As you can see in the next card, I used two colors of DIY glitter paste to shade the sphere background. Shading with glitter paste creates visual interest and dimension while keeping the card clean and simple.



First, I mixed two colors of DIY glitter paste with WOW! Sparkles Gold Dust and Copper Fire. Next, I spread the Gold Dust glitter paste around the edge of the Altenew Sphere Stencil. Then I filled in the middle with Copper Fire homemade glitter paste. 



Finish, off the card with a silhouette leaf cluster and sentiment. Here I used Altenew Wallpaper Art Stamp & Die Bundle and Simon Says Stamp Just Because Word Mix 2 Stamp & Die.

VIDEO | Watercolour With Ease Using Embossing with HandmadeByTasha

Hey crafty people!

This is HandmadeByTasha back for my final Guest Design post & video; I have absolutely LOVED my time working with WOW, and I would like to say a huge thank you, again, to WOW for having me!


For my last post, I decided to share this simple hack that really made a huge difference to my watercolouring because I thought that it could really help others to gain the confidence to watercolour with ease!

I found that the hardest skill to learn when experimenting with watercolour mediums is the control you need over the water, I struggled for so long before feeling ready to give up on the medium altogether!!





Embossing your image, before painting it, creates these little walls around each bit, so as you paint it contains that water and pigment for you!! Such an awesome way to practice!!!


You can get so many different looks too, depending on which powder you choose to use; here I went for the Primary Ebony, but in the past I've used Opaque White, White Pearl, Gold, Platinum, Silver...

You really can go in so many directions with it!



If you are feeling a little intimidated by watercolour then I really hope you give this technique a try! If you do, then I would absolutely LOVE to see what you create, so please tag myself & WOW in on social media.

We really do enjoy seeing what you are creating and even share your posts on our stories. 😊


Thanks for spending this time with me!


If you celebrate it, then I wish you a Merry Christmas. 🎄


Have a safe and happy week!

 

Stay crafty!

 

Byeee!

Video with Verity: Fab Foiled Fireworks

  



Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! This month's challenge theme is Fab Foils, and I couldn't resist combining Fab Foils with fireworks! Fireworks look great on dark cardstock, but stamping won't look so great. However, foil just pops off of black cardstock so foils and Fireworks are a match made in heaven. And yes, you can foil stamps with the aid of WOW! Bonding powder. So let's get started!!

Fab Foiled Fireworks Video Tutorial:



Check out the video over on the WOW! YouTube Channel here.

Fab Foiled Fireworks Written Tutorial:


Start off by trimming down to panels of black cardstock to fit on a slim-line card. One of these was trimmed down to add a little variation in the size of the panel. 

 Next, position the first layer of fireworks from the Catherine Pooler 'Sparkle & Pop' stamp set onto a card panel and stamp these in WOW! Bonding powder. In order to foil the stamped image, heat set the bonding powder with your dual speed heat gun. Whilst the image is still tacky - bonding powder melts and becomes tacking, cover with a colour of Fab foil of your choosing. 


Make sure the bonding powder isn't too hot when you burnish the foil in - 1, you want to be careful of you fingers, and 2, if it is still a little hot it may move and smudge under the pressure when you burnish it. 

For this first card, the Fab Foil colours used were: Blush, Rose Gold, Copper and Silver. 



Once the first layer of fireworks is stamped, reposition the card panel into your MISTI and place the second layer of fireworks over the first layer.  Again, stamp and emboss this layer with bonding powder. 

Once more, cover with foil, burnish this on and then peel to reveal the foiled designs. The colours of Fab Foil used on this second card are Violet, Teal, Ice Blue and Silver. 

In addition, stamp and foil some of the smaller stamps from the set including the stars, foiling these in silver. To add more stars to the sky, splatter a couple of different colours from the Gansai Tambi Starry Watercolour palette onto the card panels. 


To finish the cards off, add a few sentiments from the Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set, or a Cheers die cut along with a smaller secondary stamp set. In addition, add a few Chalkstick Vintage Nuvo drops to embellish the cards.
