Here's my Multi Colour Embossing post…

Hi Guys,

Marion here, I wanted to share a really simple card design with you using a multi coloured embossing technique. This technique is ages old, but the old ones are the best !!

You'll need a card blank, I always do mine tent fold, but your's can be whatever you choose.
Some circle dies, I used the Spellbinders large circles. and some spare card stock that matches your base card.
Start off by die cutting the smaller of the two circles out of scrap copier paper, then using your card stock, put the two circle dies together and die cut so you get a border.
Place the copier paper on top of your base card and hold down with a bit of washi tape.
Select some of the outline flower stamps from Hey little Flower, ink up each stamp with the WOW! Slow drying embossing pad and stamp the three different styles randomly in and around the circle, don't worry if you overlap, it adds to the effect, remove the copier paper.
Choose three different WOW! Embossing Powders, and pinch the first colour and sprinkle on the stamped area, shake off the excess and repeat with the second colour, on the third colour cover the area entirely, this will fill in all the gaps from the first two colours.
Heat set.

Adhere the die cut circle border, this will fit perfectly as you worked within the same die size.
Taking a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiment Stamps stamp and emboss on a piece of scrap card stock and cut into a banner, adhere with foam pads.
Using a glue pen where ever you want the Sparkles, sprinkle on, shake off the excess, stand back and ADMIRE !!!


Thanks everso for looking, if you have any questions you can E Mail me at marion@wowembossingpowder.co.uk

Have a great day !!

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

I got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
