WOW! Embossing Powder – Mint Floral Card

Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post where I have made a layered embossed card with the New Release embossing powder “Bang”. Because this stampset is a layering stampset I have layered heat embossing twice with Mint Macaroon embossing powder also.

I have added some layered elements to my card such as stamping with white unicorn pigment ink on grey cardstock as part of the base. The frame and leaves I have used is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio ephemera pack Midnight Collection. 

Hope you enjoyed the youtube on my card making process.

Happy Paper crafting

Hugs Jo

Now onto my creations I have used the “A cup of thanks” stampset. I have heat embossed this image with the WOW! Embossing Powder British Summer. To describe this colour I would say it is a muted dark platinum silver. It it quite a regal colour to play with and loved how the image turned out.  I have added some light ink blending behind the watercolour image and some ink splatters to help focus on the image.  have used Fabre-Castell watercolouring pencils. For the sentiment I have used Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder on some Wisteria cardstock.IMG_9551.jpg


For the second card I have used Bright White Opaque embossing powder as well as the Sand Dunes Embossing glitter. I have used the Brush Stroke Stripes stampset. This stampset can be used individual stripes at a time but I kept the whole stampset in tact and stamped with it on Kraft cardstock. The Sand Dunes embossing glitter looks a touch darker than it would on white cardstock which give the glitter a bit more depth.

I have heat embossed the “a cup of thanks” stampset again with Opaque Bright white and used watercolour pencils again but with a more colour wash effect.  Ipicked more cooler tones and added some blue wash around the image. I die cut the image out with the Darling Ribbon & Dotted Frames dies.


As a bit of interest I have stamped the image with Catherine Pooler Tiara Ink and the “thanks” sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Trinity Stamps: Let Love Grow

IMG_9431 2

Hi All, welcome to another blog post with the Trinity Stamps. Over on Trinity’s YouTube I have created todays card with 3 x  Embossing Powders from WOW! Embossing Powders..

  1. Midnight Dream Embossing Glitter
  2. Oceanic embossing Powder
  3. Primary Bluetiful


After heat embossing all three colours with the smaller images from the Live Love Grow stampset I have die cut out with stitched rectangle through the big shot.


To add details I have used  Ultra Fine Tip sharpie markers to add some added dotted details around each of the images.


I also add some extra details around the stitched details of the whole rectangle die cut panel. Once finished I foam mount the panel on a teal card base.


Stamp the sentiment with Catherine Pooler Juniper Mist Ink on a white strip of die cut cardstock. I have added some foam adhesive behind the white strip and adhered down on another strip of coloured cardstock the same colour as the card base.


To finish off the card I have added some sequins throughout the card.

Hugs to you all.

WOW! Embossing Powder : Rose Glintz Floral Card

Hi all, Jo here welcome to today’s blog post where the theme for this month is “Metallics”.

To show case a metallic colour from the Glintz range I have chosen Rose Glintz.  I have to say this colour is just so stunning and looks like liquid pink rose gold when heat embossed.

I have chosen Pink Fresh Studio Floral Fancy Cover Dies 1 & 2.  The bottom layer is the layer which I have coated with the Ultra Slow Drying Clear Embossing Ink by placing the ink pad directly on the cardstock. I pressed fairly hard during this process as I wanted a good layer of ink so the rose glintz was all over the detailed parts of the die cut.  This layer was adhered directly over the top folding white card base.

For the top layer I have also used a white card stock which leaves the Rose glintz peaking through.

The Pink Fresh Studio Word Series : Believe sentiment has been heat embossing with

Super Fine Bright White Opaque Embossing Powder on American Crafts shrimp cardstock foam mounted on the card front.

For the add on sentiment I used Simon Says Stamp Pale blush ink stamped on White cardstock then mounted on the shrimp cardstock for an added layer adhered down with liquid adhesive.

Here is my cardmaking process from my YouTube channel.
