WOW! Embossing Powder and UmWow Blog Hop: DAY 3 (LAST DAY)


Good Morning Crafters!

Welcome to Day 3 of our blog hop with UmWow Studio!  UmWowStudio is a family owned business out of Las Vegas, NV. They specialise in laser cut chipboard embellishments and masks for the paper crafting and mixed media community. 

Today we have THREE amazing designers: Sandie, Nikki and Nicole on our blog sharing cards that on the blog using WOW! and UmWow product. We love how those embellishments look embossed!


Sandie:

Hi everyone. For my projects today I made 2 cards featuring the UmWow Studio chipboard & stencils, and WOW! Embossing stamps and powders. 

On this first card I used the  Brick stencil and modelling paste to create a brick background on some white card. I added a single strip of striped patterned paper on which I stuck the Make a Wish Flair button.

 I left the Butterfly Confetti naked and used a few different sizes around the bricks. I finished the card with a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments clear stamps set.

On my second card I featured the Balloon chippies, and embossed them with VioletFuchsia Fusion and Glacier Mint powders. I used the Ranger Emboss It dabber to apply the embossing ink to just where I wanted it, so that I could emboss individually. For the balloon ribbons I used Chocolate Caramel Pearl. I tied some baker's twine around the bottom of the balloons and stamped a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiments clear stamps set.

Nikki


For this hexagon card I used Ebony, Black Twinkle and Black Russian to create a striking honeycomb effect. Perfect for those tricky male cards.



For the Cloud Card: The clouds in the sky finish off this card while adding a 3d element. The clouds are embossed with 2 layers of Vodka Sparkle and then 2 layers of White Pearl. Once you have done your final layer, reheat the embossing powders. As the powders become liquid they will mix an swirl creating a fab cloud effect.
These products are amazing together and have been fantastic to create with.



Nicole:



I love using embossing powders on wood veneers for cards. I thought those small star wood veneers from UmWow would be perfect to use with WOW embossing powders and create shaker cards. I simply inked up those stars with Versamark ink pad and dipped them in the Florescent Tickled Pink embossing powder. I added few clear, pink, and red sequins along with those embossed stars and made a shaker card. These embellishments add nice dimensions to any cards!

Today we have Patti Hamil and Jennifer Deal with a scrapbook layout and a Project Life page on the blog using WOW! and UmWow products:


Patti Hamil:

Hello everyone! For my project I made a layout with a photo from my nephew's wedding this May. I used lots of UmWow chippies and WOW powders. I also used an UmWow stencil on the background.



I used two colors of lavendar on the swirls, and added floral elements in lavendar and white.



I used the diamond stencil with lavendar ink in different areas of my background. I used the blue powder on the little chippie bird and added a tiny pearl for the eye!

I used three colors of green powder on the greenery chippies! I love the shimmer of the glitter! And the chippies are so pretty!

I added a tag with the journaling and some twine with a few pearls for the finishing touch.

Here you can see that I also used the diamond stencil and ink on a lavendar strip of paper as an element. I also added a small amount of lace trim.

I had a great time with the UmWow products! Wow powders work so well with them.

My son recently graduated from high school and I wanted to capture some of the fun party we hosted in his honor for my Project Life album.  The party theme followed his school colors of black and gold. 

To some contrast with Wow embossing powders, I used Black Glint, Black Twinkle, and Platinum. I also used Coconut Ice on a couple of pieces to show some texture in a similar design but not the additional color.

Here is the whole page with the celebration pieces from UmWow.




The top #party piece is embossed with Coconut Ice followed by Black Twinkle on #thisday and Black Glint on #cake. It is so great how the letters still show through the embossing powder.


     

I can't wait to color more UmWow pieces for cards too!

Silver & Purple Gradation Card



Hello! Nicole here and I am back with another brand-new card to share with you today. Actually today's card will be the last project I am sharing as a DT member for WOW. It has been so great being in the team and sharing my passion for heat embossing with all of you.

So, as a last project, I wanted to share something colorful and pretty, AND easy to create! I used watercolor paper and stamped De-Vine stamp set with Versamark. I used my favorite power of all, the super fine Silver embossing powder and heat set it. I think the pattern of this stamp set is just so gorgeous!


Then, I used Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks and inked up the whole surface. This create resist and dye the non-heat set portion of the paper. I love how those dark purple colors make the silver images pop out.

I simply die cut the main piece with some stitched rectangular die and used foam dots to pop it out on a white cardbase. I added few sequins to dress up the card front and added sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thank you for stopping by.

Hugs,

Nicole

Jenifer Cowles:
Welcome to the Wow and UmWow hop.  Can I just tell you these are about 2 of my most favorite products.  I just love the little Um Wow Butterflies.  I wrapped a little piece of wire around the middle and they look like they are flying around the flowers on the tag.

The tag started around one of the new Wow Embossing powder colors, Chocolate Caramel Pearl, and let me tell you it is lovely.



Here is a close up of my cluster.  I have some flowers, DCWV  and old book papers, and also some May Arts ribbons.
I hope you have enjoyed the hop today make sure you stop by everyday to be inspired by this awesome team.

Hi Everyone

At WOW HQ this month we have been given the opportunity to work with some
fantastic stencils and chipboard embellishments from umwowstudio.  I couldn't wait to get hold of my stash of tags, cogs, butterfly stencil and hexagon stencil. 
This also coincides with a great blog hop, so follow the trail of blogs for a chance to win some goodies this month.

page3

I started with a plain canvas purchased from the Pound shop.  I then covered this with white gesso.  I then sprayed this with browns, gold and green inks and let it dry, but not before tipping the canvas up to allow the ink to run down the canvas.

I then got my distress inks out and used them to sponge through the butterfly and hexagon stencils with brown, green and red distress inks.

I then used the same technique for the chipboard shapes.  I firstly inked up the shapes with Versamark and sprinkled WOW clear Ultra High embossing powder over them and heat set. I then inked them up again with Versamark and added different embossing powders and  heat set. On the cogs I used, Ebony, Pepper, Bark, Gold Rich and Verdigris.  On the butterfly I used the same but in smaller amounts and added one further layer of pepper embossing powder all over.  On the Tag I have used Bright White with a sprinkle of Ebony added and heat set.  Whilst the embossing powder is hot and liquid,  I have inked up CREATE word from the 'ME collage' stamps and embedded the word in the tag.  I have then added a piece of gross grain ribbon.

Finally stuck this all together on the canvas with Pinflair silicone glue.

Summer Fun

Welcome Wow fans!!  This is Jenifer here with you today to share my summer project.  I went with a fun layout about splashing in the water.


Wow has a large variety of shades of blue powders and I wanted to try and create the illusion of bubbles.  I used a Dreamweaver stencil and some whipped spackle from Faber Castell.  Before the whipped spackle could dry I put a small amount of several blue Wow powders over the top and heated them with a heat gun.


Can you see how cool this looks in the close up?  It is so hard to get a good picture of all the sparkle, but it is there and I LOVE how it turned out.

Here is another close up. 

I hope you have enjoyed my summer project for today and I hope you give this technique a try.

Metallic Blue
Lagoon
Frozen

Other Supplies used:
DCWV cardstock and bling sheets
May Arts ribbon
doily
Whipped Spackle-Faber Castell
Dreamweaver Stencil

Here Comes The Sun by Trish

Hello!
For the Summer theme this month, I decided to create a journal page...
I've been playing around with whimsy figures a lot recently, so I felt the need to add one here as well lol!


 My sun is a triple embossed yellow circle, with black embossed stencilling on top... one of my favourite things to do with embossing powder!






My VERY favourite thing to do with embossing powder is to use it to add splatters to the backgrounds of my pages! I've done that here too....





My whimsy girl was sketched out, then coloured with pencils. I gave her a red spotty dress and a green heart to give her a little 'strawberry' colour scheme... more Summery imagery!



I hope you like her!
