Thank You with Heather

Hello everyone... 

I'm back today sharing a thank you card in view of all the lovely presents I had this Christmas.  As a child, I was always sat down to write thank you's to relative's and I'm sad to say it's a habit that broke a long time ago - now it's usually a text or a quick email! 
I've used Wow!'s glorious Make A Wish stamp set alongside Big Words for this make and their fabulous Opaque Bright White Super Fine and Metallic Silver Super Fine powders.
 To begin, I heat embossed the dandylion heads using the Opaque Bright White powder to create a resist effect.  Over this I gently sprayed Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Spray Stains and lightly spritzed with water.
 Once dry, I've taken a small polka heart embossing folder and placing some extra thick cardboard around the dandy lions to protect them, run it through a die cutting machine to get a controlled amount of hearts.  If I hadn't placed the extra cardboard in between the f…

Embossing with Stencils Love You Card

Hi everyone! Carisa here today with my first post as part of the 2020 Wow! Embossing Creative Team! I am so excited to be part of this amazing team and represent this awesome company.  For my first project, I created a card and I wanted to make a card for our January Love / Valentines's Day / Wedding Anniversaries theme. To create the background I used a stencil and pressssed through the stencil with the Wow! Embossing Clear Ultra Slow drying Ink Pad. Once the paper is well saturated, I removed the stencil and add Wow! Clear Matt Dull embossing powder. 
Now, heat set the powder using the dual speed heat gun. Once the powder begins to turn clear, you know it has melted. Using Clear Matt Dull embossing powder essentially creates a resist so the hearts will remain white when the watercolor is added to the paper to create a background. Once the watercolor is dry, stamp your sentiment and die-cut to create a focal point for the card.  In order to add more interest and texture to the car…

Today's project features a heat embossed background AND a heat embossed die cut focal point! So it seems I have built on the last two weeks. I have never used embossing powder so much in my life, and I really enjoy it.
To begin, I die cut the Lined You dies in two colors: Navy and White, to create a shadow YOU and a LINED YOU.


Next, I pressed the lined you die cut into my WOW! Embossing Ink and coated them with ink. I covered them with Oyster Glintz Embossing Powder and melted it completely.
Then, I prepared my…

Embossing on Vellum by Isha Gupta

Hello everyone, Isha here. Our January theme is LOVE and LOVE is something we all need in life. It make life so beautiful :)
Love is soft and delicate as I feel and that's what I tried to interpret. I used vellum for my main background panel for the soft and delicate feel.


I started by creating a white cardbase. I then die-cut a frame using Taylored Expressions Frame in Frame cutting plate using a light pink cardstock.
Now for my background panel, I took vellum, stamped the WOW! J'adore clear stamp onto it using the slow drying ink. I then sprinkled Taffeta Pink embossing powder and embossed using the dual heat tool.
I love this embossing powder so much for it's color and the perfect touch of glitter.


I then adhered the vellum to the back of the frame and adhered it to the cardbase. I then stamped the sentiment onto a black stripe and embossed it using Opaque white embossing powder. I adhered this stripe to the card. Easy right?

Hope you liked this CAS monochromatic. Ha…
