1 Background Layer, 2 Cards

Hi! Nicole here and I am back with a brand new tutorial share - creating 2 cards from a 1 cardstock piece. This month theme is "garden" - when I think of flowers, I usually think of weddings. And weddings means lots of shimmer. So even though my inspiration started from our monthly theme, my results were totally different. :)

I wanted to show off an awesome embossed background layer and decided to maximize my paper and create 2 cards. This is super easy, anyone can do it! Check out the video tutorial below to see how these cards come to life.




First card I am sharing is perfect for wedding, anniversary, golden/silver birthdays, or any occasions that call for elegant looks. Simply changed the sentiment that goes in the circle part of the card and you are good to go! I wanted a subtle, shimmer background for my cards today, so I chose one of my favorite WOW embossing powers - Metallic Platinum. It has a nice combination of gold and silver and I thought it would go really well …

Delicate Flower Garden Layout

This is Jenifer here with you today to share my Garden project with you.  I love flowers and take tons of pictures of them but I don't scrap or use them very often.  I have been looking forward to this months garden theme for awhile now, and I am so happy with how my layout turned out.  I just can't get enough of the Moulds and I could use them on everything, this layout is no exception.  I have a few of the flowers and roses grouped with some ribbon and vellum flowers throughout the page.  I hope you are playing along with our garden challenge and I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Hello!
The theme this month is Gardens, and to me that theme immediately evokes gorgeous floral imagery and colour. I have created this home decór plaque...
I turned a box canvas around, and used the niche at the back to house my flower!
The flower is created using the Pansy silicone mould...
I used Apple Red powder, with just a touch of Red Glitz glitter to give a subtle sparkle!
The frame around the flower was given a wash of white paint, then edged with a small amount of green to give it definition. I used the fabulously shiny silver foil to add the leaf accents along the sides..
Finished with a cascade of moss and a tiny word...
i love how that red flower just 'pops' against the muted whites silvers and greens!
Have a lovely day,
Trish xx

Garden Magic

Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders.  This months challenge is GARDEN!  I wish I could say I had a stunning garden full of veggies and stunning flowers but I don't. Graphic 45 have some stunning papers and one of my favourite ranges is secrete garden which I thought would perfectly for this months project.
I have used the new 6 by 4 canvas and made a wee garden scene.  I stated by covering the whole canvas with a background paper and added layers.  

I embossed the entire edge with Opaque Vanilla White  regular and inked over top with vintage photo distress ink.  To bring the vanilla white back to the top I wiped over the embossed area and removed the ink that was lying on top which left only ink in the paper areas.  


I cut my images out of paper and then turned them all over and embossed the backs of them.  I did this to stiffen up my images that I am going to be layering.  I used the same vanilla white knowing that some of the embossing powder will sneak around and s…

Floral gardens

Hi everyone,
Nikki here for my dt post.
Looking around my garden this morning I was inspired to make this card.....




I made the stem of the flower by melting some clear embossing powder then pouring it onto my glass mat. I could have played with this technique for ages!
The flowers are again made with clear embossing powder that has been melted then poured into some of our silicone moulds.
The green backing paper was made by inking up some of our resist paper. I love this paper - I think it's a craft bag must have!

To create this card I used
Melt it powder
Shabby rose mould
Medium rose mould
Resist paper

We would love to see your embossed projects on our garden theme.... remember to join in with us this month....
Happy crafting

Embellished Clothes Pins or Pegs

IIf you are a long time follower of WOW, you may have noticed our designers smartly using  household tools to help in their creations. We are specifically looking at the clothes pin today, otherwise called "the peg".
These handy, inexpensive wooden delights have become a staple among crafters. Pegs are used to keep cards and papers together, to hold little tins of WOW Embossing Powder to melt, and as embellishments.
For my garden project, i decided on decorating a set to put on RAK (random acts of kindness) packages throughout the summer.
Inspired by my blooming peonies, I colored the base peg in "Chewing Gum" paint from Jenny Bowlin. The flowers were made with the WOW silicone rose mold, a full teaspoon of Melt-it and half a teaspoon of Nice Ice Blue Wow embossing powder.
After a minute the flowers cooled and were adhered to the peg with bits of lace.



If you give this project a whirl, we'd love to see your masterpieces on our facebook page.
Enjoy!

Altered Canvas - Love Family Life

Good morning :) It's Sandie here today with  my take on this month's theme - Gardens


I created an altered  4" x 6" Box Canvas wall hanging taking inspiration from the colourful gardens around my street right now.
I prepared the canvas with a layer of gesso and quickly dried it with my heat gun. Then I layered on some tissue paper and applied another layer of gesso over it, before spraying the canvas in blues and greens - to represent grass and sky. 

Taking the Cracked Leather stamp and Versamark ink I first heat embossed some Olive powder and then I used the stamp again with black Archival ink. I applied some gold embossing paste and set it aside to dry. 

While my embossing paste was drying I made some Flowers and a red Heart. I don't have a melt-pot so I used some Foil Melt-It cases and my heat gun to melt the powders and Melt-It. For the flowers I used Bright White and for the heart I used Apple Red

I took some white chipboard letters and heat embossed the…

Flower mosaic

Hello there, Maya here with two garden inspired cards. I love gardens full of flowers in all colors. I don't like taking care of my own garden, I've learned the hard way to keep it simple. It's a bit like that with my cards too. I love seeing all these cards full of pretty flowers but I can't make them myself. I had a lot of trouble coming up with some inspiration for the garden themed challenge this month until i remembered to simplify. Well, the technique is a bit time consuming depending on how intricate the design is. One was quicker than the other, but it is so much fun and the effect is great!


Here's how to do it. I used my Cameo to cut out two flower designs out of white cardstock. Save all the pieces, even the tiny ones. For this card (the quicker one) I embossed the outlines with Ebony black embossing powder. I started with attaching the big square piece from around the flowers onto a kraft colored card base. I then glued down the embossed piece like a puz…

Technicolour Garden!...

Well hello everyone!

As you probably know by now the theme for this month's challenge is 'Gardens'.  You've seen Irit's fabulous poppies and Sue's wonderful box frame garden, hopefully my 'technicolour garden' will be just as inspirational :)

'Gardens', I think, is such a brilliant theme as there are so many possibilities and it's open to a mass of interpretation - I can't wait to see what you guys come up with, as well as the rest of the DT!

Unsurprisingly, I made a card for this challenge.  A technicolour rainbow card of happiness - well that was the idea anyway!

Here it is...


Is that bright enough for you?!  :)

As some of you may know, I do love a rainbow...what could be happier?!  Using this idea and the wonderful Collage stamp as a jumping off point, here's how it went...

I measured out the size of the stamp and then divided my white piece of card into seven sections by drawing lines very faintly in pencil.  I then stamped the Collage …
