A Frozen Canvas

Hello all,   glad to see you all here today.  This months challenge was lots of fun.  I have created a wee 6 by 4 Canvas for my daughter to remember all the fun she had on her 5th birthday.  My baby is growing up!

FROZEN CANVAS


I started by embossing my entire  canvas in a mixture of blue embossing powders. ( colours used in description below)  


After I had embossed the background in blues I got my versa mark and Blizzard back ground stamp and stamped over entire surface and embossed in sparkling snow  to give a layered look.



I then stamped a snow flake from an older Christmas stamp set of Wow and again embossed in the sparkling snow and then cut out each snow flake.


I attached my snow flakes with a bit of glue and added a gem to the middle of each one. 



To finish my project up I stamped some of the smaller  snow flakes with a chalk pen and added a cut out snow flake to each corner.

Frozen fans - layout with steps


Hello there! It's Riikka from Paperiliitin blog here to share some guest inspiration! I want to thank for this opportunity! I adore Wow! powders and they are almost the only ones I use. The jar size in the powders is just right and the array of colors and effects is just amazing! For example in this layout I've used the Embossing Glitters which give the layout lovely wintery look!

I took a few photos along the way to show you how I created my background and added touches of the powders to top layers as well. If you want to read more about the story behind the layout, please just scroll further down!


I'm a mixed media style scrapbooker and crafter, so first thing I do is to make a background for my creation. This time I used three different embossing powder to make the first layer. I applied the ink through a stencil to the background paper and then used two turquoises and a white powder to add some sparkle to the piece. 


To add a touch of color and let the white powder show a touch more, I added some misting to the background as well. The embossing powder resists the mists so it's really easy just to wipe the pattern clean.


For the next step I used a swirl stamp by 7 Dots Studio and embossed the shapes with white. Partly the new shapes were on top of the first one, so at places there was double embossing.


To add the last touches and a bit of contrast I then stamped with grey ink and added some pencil doodling around the place where the composition would come.


And to keep the project cohesive, I added some twinkling embossing to the embellishments, too. I coated two chippies with the powders and added touches to the rose, too. I also created a snowy looking vellum by adding the white powder to a piece of crumbled vellum. 


The story behind the layout is a movie called Frozen. We watched the film some time ago and my girls and me were really captivated by it! It's definitely something that can be found on either their or mine Christmas wish list! The photo is actually taken during my older girls birthday party last spring, but as it showed the three of us, the fans, I though it would fit perfectly to this page. 

I chose to use the blues and whites in the page that fit the color scheme of winter and the movie cover well. As you could see previously I mostly used the sparkling glitters in the page, but also added the frosty opaque white in there, too. 

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a creative day!

VIDEO: WOW! Embossing Powder Properties & Organization

Hello! Nicole here and today I have a video that shares something fun and different than my usual videos. If you have been following me on my blog or on my instagram, you know that me and my hubby recently moved into a new house and were busy unpacking and settling in. As I set up and organized my new crafting studio, I decided to organize my supplies better as well.

So, today I am sharing how I store and organize all of my embossing powders from WOW!. Also, I will be going over some different properties that WOW! embossing powders have and hopefully you will learn more about them and choose the best ones that fit your crafting needs. (honestly, I can't not have enough of them!) 

If you are interested in any of my embossing powder labeling system, please go to my blog for direct links to download them. My system was inspired by Jennifer Mcguire's organization system. 

Please enjoy today's video below and let me know if you have any questions! ** My mic was not functioning properly as I have not fully set up my office desk and other electronics yet. After I recorded everything, I found out it had a pretty big echo going on. I need to figure out what is going on! Please bare the echoing. ** Thanks for watching! :)

Follow your Dreams Layout

Hi Wow fans this is Jenifer here with you today to share my monochrome layout with you.  I chose to do different shades and textures of white.
I love the look of white on white, there really are many varying shades.  I stamped the De-Vine stamp on a piece of vellum and then layered it with a doily and thread.  The beautiful Large Rose from the Wow Mould is one of my favorites and don't be suprised to see it show up on everything.  Lastly add some sequins and a little strip of doily along the top and you are done.

Thank you so much for taking a look at my layout today :)  Make sure you stop by for more inspiration and participate in this months challenge for a wonderful prize.

Flower Power canvas!

Hello!
Trish here with my project for the fabulous Monochrome theme!
I decided to create using the classic monochrome black and white colour scheme, and made a canvas..
I love working on box canvases, as there is so much depth to decorate as well as the front! I made sure there was lots of texture on my edges...
I added interest to the front by stamping onto tissue paper, then gluing the tissue down. Once the glue dries, it becomes transparent and the design looks like it was stamped directly onto the surface...
I used the gorgeous Vintage Wallpaper stamp.
The flower was created using the triple embossing technique. I sketched out the flower shape onto chipboard, then cut it out. A thick base such as chipboard is essential when triple embossing, the weight and quantity of embossing powder you are putting on will simply warp and curl thinner cardstock!
I embossed three times using Black ultra powder, to give the depth and sheen...
To get the dotted effect, quickly sprinkle on a tiny (really tiny!) amount of  white ultra powder on top of the already hot black. Do not heat again, or the white dots will simply melt into the black and disappear! The heat from the melted powder underneath is just enough to melt the white, whilst still keeping the separate dot shape!

I hope you like my happy flower canvas, see you next month!

Monochrome Tag Card

Hi everyone

For this month's challenge the theme is Monochrome - although the word means black and white or only one colour I decided to stick with the black and white theme for my post this month.


This card was made for a friend and includes two tags that can be used at a later date.

I cut out two tags, one in black and one in white and stamped each with the "De-Vine" stamp and Versamark Embossing ink pad. The I used the Seafoam white powder on the black card and Black Glint Regular powder on the white card.

I then stamped out images from the Simply Amazing stamp both in black and white and added these images to each tag.

I then inked up some white spotty card with my Versamark pad only touching the top of the spots and added Black Glint powder. I then heat embossed the card and cut it into a triangle. This was added at the bottom of the card to hold the two tags.
Two roses were added to the corners and twine added to each tag.

Products used:  Stamps - Simply Amazing
                                       De-Vine

Powders used  -  Seafoam white
                          Black Glint Regular.
