Embossed cards - GDT Wow Embossing Powders


Amazing news! I'm guesting over at Wow! Embossing Powders today! There's two projects and a tutorial in the original post BUT there's also more! Lovely Tania has added a giveaway to the post and you could win all the supplies I used from Wow! How cool is that! So please click here (link) to visit Wow! blog, leave a comment and you're in for a draw!

Like I said, I created two crafts for the guest post – a set of cards and a layout. I used the same background steps in both of them and prepared a step by step tutorial for the background and finishing the cards. So let’s get started with that! 

What you need is the “Big Words” stamp set from Wow!, naturally some embossing powders, the new Wow! embossing ink and also “Hearts” silicone mold and Mel-It! powder. You also need some patterned paper and white cardstock and also a stencil and watercolors. 

 

Step 1) Stamp the words to your background using the embossing ink. Try to avoid stamping the words on top of each other, but vary the orientation – stamp some vertically, some horizontally. 

Step 2) Sprinkle the pattern with white embossing powder and heat to melt the powder. 

 

Step 3) Add some watercolor touches on top. The embossed areas will resist the color. Just add paint freely and don’t forget to include some splashes, too.

Step 4) After drying the paint, add embossing ink through a stencil to your piece. Concentrate to one focal point. Emboss the design using a colored powder of your choice. 

 

Step 5) Make the greeting to the card. Stamp a word or a phrase to a piece of white cardstock and emboss with the same color you used in previous step. 

Step 6) Time to put everything together – adhere your background piece to a slightly larger piece of white cardstock and then include the greeting piece using foam dots for extra detail. 


Step 7) Finish the card with a heart made using the silicone mold, Melt-It powder and same color you have used in steps 4 and 5.

So there you have it! Just 7 steps and a fun card is done. If you haven't already, now's your time to participate to the giveaway. So please click here (link) to visit Wow! blog, leave a comment and you're in for the draw! You have until July 1st to take part!
