Masculine Thank You Card

 Hello, Ericka here with a fun masculine Thank You card using a Distress Oxide background with lots of fun WOW! Embossing Powders.

I created a background with Distress Oxides in Walnut Stain and Speckled Egg with a gel press.

I then used the Concord & 9th Thanks Turnabout stamp with WOW! Embossing ink and used the following embossing powders:

  • Sea of Tranquility part of the Seth Apter Cosmic Trio,
  • Oiled Slate part of the Jo Firth Young Dockside Trio,
  • Primary Bark, and
  • Midnight Dream

I love this fun way to use a variety of embossing powders on a background.

After I was done embossing, I used the "Thanks" die to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope my card inspired you to play along in our challenge and create a masculine cards. You have one more day to enter your project on the FB WOW! Embossing Powders Fans page for a chance to win. 

 

Have a wonderful day and week.

VIDEO: Combining Foiling, Embossing and Glitter on One Card with Jenny

 Hi Everyone!

It's Jenny here and today I have a card video for you that combines a LOT on one little card!   It features not only foiling with WOW!  Fab Foils, AND embossing, AND Sparkles glitter.  Whew! 

There's a video that shows you how to create this card over on the WOW! Channel.


To create this card, I first did my foiling.  I'm using Teal Fab Foils.  There are a few ways to apply these, but my favorite is using WOW!  Bonding Powder.   You can foil any of your stamps using WOW! Bonding Powder.  Simply stamp with WOW! embossing ink, heat emboss with Bonding Powder, and then overlay the foil.  I used the Love Conquers stamp set from Gina K Designs, and foiled it in Teal Fab Foil.  you need to apply heat to adhere the foil - you can use your heat gun (it will give a distressed look), an iron, or I use my Minc Machine (or use a laminator).  It will squash the image slightly though.  

When foiled, I stamped a couple of branches from the Gina K. Kindness Wreath and heat embossed them in Glassy Ocean from the Dockside Trio, to frame the sentiment.  This color pairs really beautifully with the Teal foil. 

I trimmed the panel to 4"x 5.25" and created my own co-ordinating glitter cardstock, using Twinkerbelle Sparkles glitter.  I trimmed a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of cardstock and adhered a doubled sided sheet of adhesive to,  then scattered the Sparkles over the top.   Rubbing it in with finger or bone folder adheres it perfectly.   I then added the foiled embossed panel over the top and popped it onto a white notecard.  As a finishing touch I added some Nuvo Drops in Duck Egg onto the branches to finish!

I love how all the WOW!  products co-ordinate with each other -  they work perfectly here to bring out the fab sentiment!

Trio of Tags by Heather Mitchell

Hey everyone, Heather here once again with some more textures and layers for you and today I've used teal, turquoises and blue embossing powders as these are my absolute favourite's and my go-to's every time.
I love making tags as they are fairly quick to do and I love the smaller space you work in and a tag seems to love being layered up. I began by die cutting three tags using the Tim Holtz Framelit dies by Sizzix. These come in a variety of sizes and I've used the largest.
Each tag has a different background using Distress Oxides. The first uses (from top to bottom) Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Broken China. The second uses Peacock Feathers, Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon and the third Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean. All the tags have been given a quick spritz of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Tone on Tone Turquoise, Denim and Blue and the gorgeous Bittersweet Vine which is a rusted colour.
I've used Aall & Create stamps for all the tags, in one way or another. For the first tag,  I've used their Lined border stamp and then heat embossed Enumerated using the utterly beautiful Colour Blend Verdigris, an absolutely delicious powder with various shades of turquoise and gold flecks... truly beautiful.  
Having used Bang to create an embossed sheet to die-cut from, I've used a Tonic Studios die to get two different sized scribbly circles.  
You can see how I've layered the tag... the scribbly circles are under an old tag I saved from a shirt I bought, unfortunately what you can't see in the photograph is the vintage type on the tag which looks fabulous!  
It's been coloured with oxides and heat embossed using Bright White Opaque and another Aall & Create stamp, Reverse Dot. The top layer is the star, which I've layered onto a snip of cheesecloth and the sentiment die, also from Sizzix, just finishes it off.  

Tag two is a sparkly affair and has the Glittery Totally Teal heat embossed over the Lined stamp. The sparkle doesn't photograph too well, but it is super sparkly! 
I've also used Totally Teal to make another sheet to die-cut the scribbly square which I've sat the layers in. As before, I've used some Bright White Opaque and cheesecloth to break up the blue tones and add texture.  
Again, I've added die-cut shapes which I've coloured and heat embossed and then layered with foam tape. The star has Totally Teal heat embossed on it again and looks beautiful next to the Metallic Gold Rich on the sentiment.

The third and final tag, uses the Oceanic powder, another favourite of mine. As an opaque powder, Oceanic covers the background stamping beautifully.
I've used a ripped piece of corrugated cardboard to add another layer. Having painted it with gesso, I then coloured it with my oxide ink pads and then just swiped the slow drying embossing pad over the ridges before sprinkling with the Bright White Embossing Powder.
In hindsight, I would've made the star lighter and more turquoise as it seems very dark on the tag but the layers soften it so it doesn't look too harsh.
Another die-cut sentiment from Sizzix, this time in Metallic Copper, completes the trio.  

It's lovely to work with tone on tone powders and inks and I think I'm going to do a larger piece on a canvas for my craft room... so watch this space! 

Here are all the products I've used for this make...
