Using Embossing Powder on Mixed Media Projects

Hi friends,

It's Colleen and I'm back one more time to Guest Design on the WOW! blog! I have really enjoyed these past two months experimenting with my favorite embossing powders again! Today I want to share how to use embossing powder with your mixed media projects! I've got a video tutorial as well, so I'll keep my blog post brief as the video explains most of it! 






When I have some down time, I love to create background card panels that I can pull out later when I need to make a card. The colorful panels inspire me! For this card, I started with a background panel that was colored using distress oxide inks. I added mixed media layers using an abstract stamp and light grey ink. And that's where the embossing powder comes in to play! Embossing Powder can add such a fun element to your mixed media projects because it has texture, shine, and interest! And it's not bulky so you can add layers without the bulk! You can use the powder with stamp, stencils, and embossing folders! Below is my finished card. 



Here are the steps I took to achieve this luscious mixed media delight!

1. Apply Ultra Slow Drying Embossing pad directly onto the edges of the inked up card panel. 
2. Add Luxurious Chocolate embossing powder over the sticky embossing ink and heat set with WOW! dual speed heat tool
3. If needed, run the card panel through your die cut machine to flatten it completely and then adhere to a white A2 sized card base.
4. Apply your favorite oxide inks onto 3 white card panels and then stamp 3 different sizes of Tangle Rounds by Notable Ink over the ink using the Ultra Slow Drying ink pad. Apply Midnight embossing powder over each and heat set with dual speed heat tool.
5. Die cut each Tangle Round with circle dies and adhere onto the card base. 
6. Add desired sentiment.
7. Stamp the largest butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies 2 by Gina K Designs onto a white card panel using Ultra Slow Drying ink pad and Luxurious Chocolate embossing powder. Heat set with dual speed heat tool. Repeat the process with 2 of the smaller butterflies from the set. Die cut all the pieces.
8. Apply foam tape to the back of the butterflies and adhere them over each of the tangle rounds. Be sure to leave a bit of the design from the Tangle Rounds showing through! 

Here are a few close up photos of my card so that you can see the details! Remember to watch the video for full details on how this card was created!




I'm so glad you stopped by today and I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial session!

Let's get Crafty | REEL | Fab Foiled Fabric with Dunja

Hello everyone, it's Dunja here with a new episode of LET'S GET CRAFTY. 
Actually, I should probably show something other than the Fab Foils, but let's face it, this look of foils is great and I've found out through experimentation that foil looks wonderful on fabric. Take a look for yourself!

You can watch the REEL here




I used a piece of linen and a piece of jeans. It's super simple.
You choose the shape you want, here it's a tag. The die-cut is from Alexandra Renke.

I first glued the fabric onto a piece of paper that was also punched out. This gives more stability and you can still write on the back of the TAG at the end, a few personal lines are always nice :))

Now take the stencil, place it on the fabric side, brush the Tacky When Dry paste over it and let it dry. When the paste is dry, it sticks.

Then put the foil on, rub it on and carefully pull it off. And you have a perfectly foiled TAG.

The foils are available in a wide range of colours, so you are sure to find one that suits you!
The Fab Foilers are the perfect complement. Just take a sentiment and stick it on.

No need for any further decoration, right?

Here are the detailed photos of the tags for you.







Thanks so much for stopping by. If you have any questions please let us / me know. We're happy to help.

Hope you feel inspired to use your foils.
Let's get crafty :)) happy weekend

Dunja

Video | Sparkle & Shine | Embossing Pouncing Technique

Hej Everyone! It's Martina here with another Sparkle & Shine Project for WOW Embossing Powders.

As I have already mentioned before, I am always super inspired by our very own Marion Emberson.
And her Embosed Pouncing Technique is still blowing my mind.

You can watch her orignial Video here:

I felt inspired to give this technique another try and came up with a clean and simple card idea.
*You can watch my Video here on the WOW Embossing Channel*

The technique is so easy and fun!

You can marble your own die cut pieces in all colours and shades!

I absolutely recommend to watch Marions Video if you are interested in recreating this technique! She shares all the details you need to know about it!

But the main steps are:

Put a piece of Cardstock (I have been using a Die Cut Butterfly) on one side of a folded piece of Baking Paper.

Apply Embossing Powder onto the Die Cut.

Fold the other half of the paper over the Die Cut with Embossing Powder and carefully melt the Powder with your Dual Speed Heat Tool.

The results are always unique and amazing!

I hope you get to try this amazing technique!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hot foiling over Embossing powder backgrounds

Hello lovely crafty friends, it’s Sasha here with another Cardmakers Delight. There are so many things you can do with embossing powders, but did you know you could also hot foil over them? 

So today I’m sharing a fun but simple way to create unique backgrounds and then hot foil over them. As always you can watch the reel on the WOW embossing Instagram page to get a better idea of the technique.

Did you know you can use the discount code WOWDTSO to get 10% off your purchases? Well now you know so please use it ;)






To make the background, I started by ink blending Cracked Pistachio, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry distress oxides onto a 5 x 5 inch panel of Wow Embossing Superior White Cardstock. I ink blending halfway up the page and made the shapes look like flames from the candle. That was the idea behind this card and technique.



Whilst the distress oxides were still wet, I added a layer of WOW embossing clear gloss powder and heat embossed the panel. The texture was still a bit uneven so I took my WOW embossing slow drying ink pad and ink’d up the areas that were ink blended before adding another layer of clear embossing powder and heat embossing it. This time the finish was smooth and glossy just how I like it!

I then took my Spellbinders, so many candles hot foil plate and drew a line to mark on my panel where I was going to hot foil. To add more drama to the flame, I then took my WOW Embossing dual speed heat tool and re-heat a small embossed area above the line I drew. Once it was hot enough, I then used my fingers  sprinkle a bit of WOW embossing powder Metallic gold powder over the area and heat emboss it. Once you reheat the embossed areas you can add more embossing powder on top, as many times as you desire. 




Once I had my desired look, I then splattered the rest of the top area with some gold watercolour. Once my panel was cool to the touch, I went ahead and foiled the candles onto my panel with some gold foil. (You will need a hot foil machine for this, I use the Gemini foil press)
I then trimmed down my panel by 1/2 a cm on all sides before propping it up on some foam tape and sticking it onto a 5x5 card base. I finished it off by adding a foiled sentiment on black card stock and some sequins from Lucy’s shop. 


The look of this technique is really pretty especially when the light catches the gold embossing and the shine from the gloss! The pictures really don’t do it justice so please try it at least once and see for yourself! Don’t forget to tag us on social media when you do. 


Sending you crafty hugs and inspiration
Sasha x
