Mixed Media Butterfly Tag by Susanne

 Hi my dear crafty Friends!

It's Susanne writing today and I'm sharing a mixed media tag. Yes, I love creating tags!!! Why? They have a super size to test new techniques, you can create cards with them, use them simply as a tag on a gift, add them to your art journal or planner or only keep them as a reference for your self.

I used the lovely "Layered Hearts" stamps together with "Blueberry Cheesecake" powder on my background before I added any color. The tag is colored with liquid watercolors. The embossing acts as a resist. I used the group of tiny butterflies from the "Mariposa" stamps set and the words from the "Just Saying" set.


The butterfly is one of the Sizzix Butterfly Duo. I pressed it softly onto the Embossing Pad and added "Iced Silver" Glitter. It's colored with liquid watercolor. The happy is a die from CUTplorations. I used chalk cardstock from DCWV.


Thank you for stopping by!
Have a nice sunday.
xx Susanne.

MARIPOSA COLORED EMBOSSING CARD

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a colorful card that I created using the stamp set Mariposa designed by Maya Isaksson and WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. Take a look at my card:


Creating this card was a fun time:
1. Cut the base of the card using Very Vanilla card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2"
2. Cut a second layer of Very Vanilla. The size is 4-1/8"x5-3/8".
3. Cut the die cut Leafy Border using Old Olive card stock.
4. Stamp the butterfly images from the stamp set Mariposa over the second layer using Splendor #10 Ink. This is a craft ink in Circus colors.
5. Cover your images with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and melt it with the WOW Heat Tool.
6. Stamp the words from the stamp set Just Saying by Marion Emberson using the same ink and covered with the same embossing powder. Melt with the WOW Heat Tool.
7. Paste the Leafy Border die cut over the left border of the stamped layer.
8. Paste the decorated layer over the card base using dimensionals.


I hope my project inspires you to create, use your WOW Embossing Powders and don't forget the traditional colors or try the new colors - they are simply gorgeous and perfect for any occasion.

See you soon!

An Early Autumn


Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and having a productive month! For the "Anything Goes" challenge  this month I decided to get my inspiration from the changing seasons and created this Autumnal card.


I started by stamping leaves from the Flights of Fancy Clear Stamp Set across teal coloured card which I then embossed with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I then coloured around the leaves with ProMarkers and added a sentiment from the Just Saying Clear Stamp Set.


I then made a cute heart embellishment using Bonding Powder, Metallic Copper and Iridium powders melted and poured into a heart silicone mould.
I also added dots with an embossing pen then sprinkled Iridium Embossing Glitter on top for a bit of sparkle.

I hope you get the chance to join in with the challenge this month, I will look forward to seeing what you all come up with.

Card with Ombre embossing on diecuts

Hello,friends!
It is Victoria on the blog today, with a card for our September Challenge -  the theme is "Anything Goes". Recently I have received my DT pack with the new products and wanted to play with them. New line of Colour Blend is made of an pearlescent base with a mixture of other colours and they complement each other beautifully.
I wanted to get ombre look for my die-cuts, so I inked a piece of white cardstock with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and poured some WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powder on top, than WL08R Colour Blend - Peppermint TeaWL06R Colour Blend - Mint MacaroonWL07R Colour Blend - Banana Split to the bottom, making a stripe of each colour and heat set with WOW! Heat Tool - Euro
Then I die cut a feather and border out of this ombre paper. 
Also I stamped on a white cardstock these adorable bubbles - Pop (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set - with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and embossed with WL06R Colour Blend - Mint Macaroon. Oh, how I love this perfect mint colour!
Also I stamped some flowers from Hey Little Flower (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set with black pigment ink and covered them with WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake . The reason I used black ink is getting more contrasting outline for water-colouring the petals. I fussy cut the flowers and added them to composition.

Card by Laurence

 
 
Hello, this is Laurence today with a tutorial using WOW embossing powder. I would like to show you a card where I used 2 different techniques with embossing powder but without using any embossing ink.

 
Draw lines with a glue pen, apply your embossing powder when the glue is still wet and heat emboss. Glue pens may be found in different width and you may also use it to write text for example and sprinkle with embossing powder.


For my second technique, I applied acrylic paint and sprinkled embossing powder before the paint dries out. Punch circles or use your dies. I used embossing glitter to add sparkle and texture but you may try with different colors of embossing powder and acrylic.


I hope you will be inspired and play along on our current challenge.

Floral Inspiration


Good morning everyone, I hope you're all enjoying the summer! I wanted to share a summery card today which is my inspiration for this month's floral challenge. I started by using the Tropical Stamp down the left hand side of white card which I embossed with Opaque Bright White powder. I then gently applied distress ink over the top with a dabber to reveal the pattern.


For the 3D flowers I used the Secret Garden stamp which a embossed with Blueberry Cheesecake Embossing Powder. I then cut out individual flowers, shaped with my fingers and added pretty gems in the centres.


The sentiment is from the Just Saying stamp set which I've embossed with my favourite colour at the moment, British Summer.

I hope this has given you a few ideas, there's still two days to join in the challenge, why not have a go? I can't wait to see what you make.

Have a great day!
