Two ways to create ombre die-cut sentiments



Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! So I've been playing about the with the WOW! Flocks and I couldn't help but use them again on another card. This time I've used them with my die cuts to create an Ombre look and I love how it turned out! However, if you've not got any flock yet, I'm showing you how to achieve an Ombre look with your heat embossing too. These sentiments look so good that they can take centre stage on your card with a simple background. So let's get started!

Two ways to create Ombre die-cut sentiments Video Tutorial:


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

Two ways to create Ombre die-cut sentiments Tutorial:

Card 1: Ombre with Sparkles/Flock

For this first card, add a double-sided adhesive sheet to one side of a card panel. Next, use the Altenew Fancy Celebrate die and die cut this out, making sure the adhesive is on the front of the die-cut.


Now removed the adhesive back and cover the lower third with WOW! Black Onyx Essential Sparkles. Return any excess sparkles back into the container. Repeat covering the middle third with WOW! Graphite Essential Sparkles ensuring this overlaps with the Black Onyx. 



For the last upper third of the die-cut, cover with WOW! Bright Blue Flock. All of the sparkles and flock will stick to adhesive on the die-cut. 

To ensure the sparkles and flock stay put, use the left over backing from an adhesive sheet and place of the top of the die-cut. Use your bone folder to burnish the sparkles and flock down into the adhesive. In addition, also gently heat set the flock with your heat gun

To create the card, dry emboss the Altenew Grid Cover die into a white card base. Adhere the Ombre die-cut sentiment onto the front and finish with a small sentiment from the Altenew Modern Greetings stamp set


Lastly embellish with a few coordinating sequins. 

Card two: Ombre using heat embossing


For this card we will use heat embossing with Sparkles to create an Ombre die-cut sentiment.


Smoosh your WOW! Clear drying embossing ink pad down into the lower half of another Altenew Fancy Celebrate die-cut. Cover this with WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder and heat set.


To add the sparkle, again add embossing ink, this time only to the bottom of the die-cut. We need to make this sticky to add the WOW! Sparkles. To do this, cover with WOW! Bonding powder.


Next, heat set the bonding powder just like regular embossing powder. When heat set it turns stick and remains like this for a while so cover with WOW! Mola Mola Earth Sparkles


For this card, the Altenew Grid Cover die was die-cut out of Hero Hues Nautical cardstock and adhered to a white card base. Another smaller sentiment was added to the front and embellished with gold matt sequins.

  1. Two beautiful cards Verity and I love the two tone look of the sparkly sentiments, both so different using the added flock and gold sparkles, and the background grid die looks great dry embossed and then the strong blue die cut on the second. Wonderful inspiration. x

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
