Adding Sparkle to your Cards


Hej and Welcome! Martina here with you.
I have - again - a Mixed Media-ish card for you
and *here's the video along this card on the WOW YT channel!*

 Creating this card has been easy and fun! Here are the steps for you:

Applying Dye Ink to the background using an ink blending brush.
Using the same brushes to apply Dye Inks through the Starry Night stencil.

Stamping with the same inks and the WOW "wall art" stamp set into the background.

Applying "Tacky when Dry" Medium through the same star stencil as before. 

Set the backround aside to dry.

Heat Embossing paper scraps with Sugared Almond and Midnight Dreams
and cutting stars fom these pannels.

For the focal point, cover a big Alexandra Renke "Magical" die cut with Pea Coat.

When the Medium is dry (it turns clear when it is dry!) pour the Thistle Sparkles over the background, tap/brush the excess powder off and glue all pre heat embossed pieces to the card.

Ta-Daa!

I hope this easy but effective card inspired you to get creative!

Have an amazing day!

Ombre Embossed Sentiment Dies

Hello friends, it's Colleen here today sharing a fun way to use your WOW! embossing powder with large sentiment dies! Large sentiment dies are all the rage right now, and it's fun and easy to use them as the focal point of your card! We're going to step it up a notch by creating an ombre look to our sentiment!


I'm using a large die sentiment from Crafty Meraki called Celebrate Slimline tag. For this card, I'm using just the Celebrate die along with the "Let's" and "You" dies that come with the set.  My first step was to create a subtle, yet shiny, background. Since my sentiment was going to be in pinks, I decided on a grey background. Those two colors work so well together! I did some easy ink blending on a  6x3 white card panel with Pinkfresh Studio inks in Misty Coast, Rocky Slope, and Metropolis. Then I heat embossed over the inked up area with Earl Grey embossing powder. Earl Grey is such a lovely shade of grey with bits of glitter in it!



I placed the panel onto a white card base sized 6.25 x 3.25. Then I started on the Celebrate sentiment die. This is a HUGE die that's perfect as a focal point! I die cut it onto white cardstock and then created an ombre effect using embossing powders in Made You Blush, Bubblicous, and Pinkalicious. All of these powders are Opaque, so I knew the colors would be bright and vibrant! I added one powder at a time, going from lightest to darkest. Then I dried the sentiment with my WOW! Dual Speed heat gun on high. I then adhered it over the grey card panel and finished with the Let's and You sentiments in white, so the sentiment reads "Let's Celebrate You". I just love how pink and grey play so nicely together! Below is a closer look at the sentiment. 



I'm glad you stopped by today and hope that you pull out your WOW! powders and create an ombre look to your sentiment dies!

Texture!!! Sparkle!!!! Mixed Media Style

Hi Crafty Friends!  It is Natasha and I am super happy to be here with you today!  I love to add texture and color with embossing powder - it is so much fun!  Today's card is all about these ideas!  So let's get started!


To begin I started with a piece of mixed media card stock.  I applied a coat of white gesso to the paper with a paintbrush and allowed this to dry.  Next I created my background using Lindy's Gang Magical Powders and shakers!  These are super fun and easy to use!  I started by taping down the paper to my glass board.  I then sprinkled powders down, spritzed with water and allowed the magic to happen!  I continued this process until I had the colors I was looking for! I also added a bit more color using Starburst Shimmer sprays.  Once I had the background created I allowed this to completely dry.   

Next I wanted to add some texture and dimension to the background.  I love adding texture with stencils, paste, and embossing powder.  I started with the WOW Scrunch background stamp.  I inked this up using the WOW embossing pad and applied it to several sections of my background.  I then applied Pumpkin Latte embossing powder.  I heat set this using my WOW heat tool.  Next I took out my texture paste and added distress ink to my glass mat.  I wanted to create a brown texture paste.  I also added some WOW Earth Sparkles to the paste in the color Flounder.  I chose a stencil from my stash and used the paste and stencil on 2 sections of my card.  I then allowed the background to dry.  Once dry I die cut the background using a rectangle die.  


Next I started to work on my butterflies.  I used a set from Gina K and used the coordinating stencil.  I applied several colors of dye ink and then heat embossed the top layer 2 times using Karin's Dream powder.  I then die cut the butterflies using coordinating dies.  I chose a pre-stamped sentiment and die cut this.  Next I die cut 2 hearts and used double sided tape as I wanted to apply the WOW earth sparkles to the hearts in the color Flounder.  

To complete my card I adhered the sentiment, as well as butterflies and hearts using both foam tape and liquid adhesive.  



Thank you so much for stopping by!  I had a lot of fun!  

Crafty Hugs,
Natasha
