Sparkling Happy Birthday Card


Hello! Nicole here and I am excited to share this fun card with you today. I have been having so much fun with some embossing glitter powders from WOW, so I decided to create a card using one them. 

I recently got a dog die and wanted to create a birthday card for a friend who loves dogs. I decided to add the Black Twinkle embossing glitter powder to dress up the dog. 


The die-cut piece has skinny legs and a skinny tail so to make sure that embossing powder gets on every part of the cut out piece, I attached it to a white scrap paper using some temporary adhesive. This method comes in really handy when you emboss sentiments or any detailed die-cut piece. After adhering it to the scrap paper, I pressed the Versamark Ink Pad on to the paper piece.


Check out this gorgeous glitters! I love the fact that once you heat set the glitter powder, glitters don't really fall out and get everywhere. Less mess the better, in my opinion! I wanted to create a collar for the dog, so I took out the WOW embossing pen and drew a line on to the neck area. It is simple and easy to customize the look using the embossing pen.


Here is the finished look for the dog die-cut piece. Isn't it just so cute? Collar is heat embossed with the Cardinal Red embossing powder. I left the rest of the card pretty simple, if you look closely, you will see some paw watermark on the background of the card. I took out a paw print stencil from my stash and added Versamark right on top of it. This is a quick way to create a very subtle watermark background for the card.


I also heat embossed the sentiment with the Cardinal Red embossing powder. Using a matching color for the sentiment and for the collar of the dog, this creates more of a soft unified look. To pop out the focal point, I used couple of yellow enamel dots as accents. Hope you enjoyed the project and a quick tutorial! Thank you for stopping by and have fun embossing today!

Hugs, Nicole

Then & Now Layout

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today.  When thinking about this months "Time" theme all I could think about is how fast my children are growing.  That is how my Then & Now layout came about.
After looking at this video I knew that the water splatter technique was something that I needed to try, using pastel blue and then some of the glitter blue over the top.
 Using the same pastel blue, Melt-It and ultra bright white I created the flower centers.  I used a lovely silver damask vellum from Ruby Rock-It to anchor my layers.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at project today :)

Time To Grow

Hello!
This months theme is 'Time', and it seems that right now I have been surrounded by people using that word! The end of the school year is upon us, so all the 'time to move on', 'time to leave', 'time to start new adventures' phrases are coming thick and fast! I've chosen on of my favourite phrases: 'Time To Grow', and have made a flower themed journal page....
I've used lots of WOW products, all in the circles of my flower! I used....
(From left to right)
Olive, Silver Foil, Fluorescent Blue, Apple Red, and Clear (over text paper)

My circles were layered up on top of each other...
As you can see, you can 'do things' on top of the melted embossing powder to embellish it further! I have stamped using ink, stamped using paint, scribbled with a black pencil and added dots and stars!
The flower is on a painted background, lots of stencilling and printing...
A little bit of a scalloped , doodled border...
And a stripey stem and leaves!
My phrase is a combination of alphabet stickers and cut out words..
I hope you like it!
See you next month,
Trish xxxx

"Time " - Canvas -

"Time" Canvas

Hi, Christine here with a project for this months's theme "Time"   The canvas was first painted with Black Acrylic paint then I inked the Brocade stamp over the top with Clear Versamark ink.


I then added Blue Pearl Embossing Powders and set the powders with a Heat gun.

 For the next step, I embossed the letters "Time" with WoW Gold Rich powders and added these to the top of the canvas. Next came one of my favourite techniques, I heated some Gold Rich, Copper and Metallic Pink Embossing Powders in my Melt Pot and poured the melted powder into the Flowers and Heart moulds. Once cool I added these flowers to the corner of the canvas. I also embossed the "Call Me" stamp from the WoW "Call Me" range of stamps and added this to the canvas under a picture of a clock. Rafia was wrapped around the canvas too and the embellishments stuck down with silicone glue.

I embossed two Die-Cut swirls with Orange Pearl powder and added these to the right hand side of the canvas sticking them under the heart mould.

I love to create canvasses as they are very in-trend at present and the powders and stamps from WoW give you a good base to work with. Once you have the base you can then design a range of canvasses for each room in the house. WoW powders come in so many different colours you will be spoilt for choice.

Products used in this project:

Metallic Gold Rich Pale.
Metallic Pink
Metallic Copper
Orange Pearl
Blue Pearl

Silicone Moulds
Daisy
Medium Rose
Heart Mould
Pansy


Stamps : Brocade
              Call Me
Versamark Ink Pad

Time is Precious, Waste it Wisely



Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders,  Donna here today to share a project that I created.  This months theme is TIME.  It took a while to think what I could create, but once I had that pic in my mind it came together nicely.

TIME IS PRECIOUS...WASTE IT WISELY


I have had this Tim Holtz clock for a while now and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  I thought it would fit nicely into this months theme of time.


There was a lot of prep work for this project.  I covered the entire clock in white distress paint.  Why you ask, to give my surface some tooth.  I knew I wanted to emboss on it and I needed something for the embossing powder to grip to.  Once my paint was dry I covered it in a layer of Blue Topaz (such a stunning colour)  and heat embossed it.  I then got a mask out and in sections I added versa mark ans then vanilla white, again heat embossing.


I then spent some time adding more embossing powder for highlights,  I added Calypso to areas and  to blend them in I added more Vanilla White.  After I had got the colours right in my mind I then added some distress paint to areas.


For the inside of my clock I tissue papered and then sprayed with Lindy's gang sprays (fallen in love with these) then added some fussy cutting and built up a scene.  I have used Memory Maze chipboard birds and embossed them with Blue berry


These lovely little memory Maze Girls have been embossed with Seafoam White and added to my scene with some foam dots.  Once my scene was complete I added to clock frame with some flowers and a wee saying.  To me one of the girls is telling some thing to the other,  so I found the quote " Time is Precious, waste it wisely"  which again goes really well with our theme .

Some more close ups......

The gift of time

Hi everyone, Nikki here. Today it's my turn to do the WOW! inspiration post.... this month our theme is TIME, so me to there was only one thing that I wanted to do... a clock....
I picked up a clock at a discount shop a while ago and I wanted to turn it into something a bit more special.
So this is what I came up with.......
 I used some of the WOW! resist paper instead of a photograph and then inked it match the embossing powders that I had chosen.
 To create the leaves in the background I used passion fruit and primary chartreuse.
For the edge of the quilled flowers I used primary purple orchid and for the butterflies I used frozen berries, calypso and orange fizz. These are all new colours and I think they are just stunning!!!
A must have to your embossing powder collection.
Here's a close up to show off some of the yummy sparkle...
 As a little extra I wanted to share with you another great way to use your embossing powders... You can use them to create wonderful splatter backing papers. These are just perfect for all your crafty projects....
Here is one I made yesterday when I was playing....
It gives a great splatter effect and because you use embossing powders, it's textural too...

 To create your splatter effect you will need a small dish, an old brush (an old toothbrush is great for this technique), some water and some embossing powders - I have used primary purple orchid and frozen berries here.
Add a little water to your dish - the more water you add the more subtle your finished splatter effect will be.
Give it a good stir to mix it all with your brush, by doing this you will load your brush really well.
Using your finger, run your finger across the brush head, This will cause the powder mix to spray across your project.
Turn you project throughout this technique to make sure you get an even cover.

We would love to see what you create on the theme of TIME..... get crafty and join in the fun....

Happy crafting
Nikki x Pin It Now!
