Impressive Heat Embossing AECP | with WOW! Embossing Powder

Hi all, welcome to today’s post where I have played with layering stamps in a different way. With a twist, I have layered the build a flower stamps with embossing powders. I have created a step by step youtube tutorial revealing all my tips and tricks to layering embossing powders. My tutorial show cases my very own Pink-a-licous Trios from WOW! Embossing Powder. I have used an oldie but a goodie layered stampset – Build-a-flower “Camellia.

This is part of my submission as part of the Altenew AECP program. My course I have learnt from today is the Impressive Heat Embossing by Svetlana Marchenko. I have put my own spin on my submission and this course gave me the confidence to think outside the square when it comes to heat embossing. Be sure to grab your MISTI, embossing powders and layering stamps and join me along my tutorial.

WOW! Embossing Powder New Release

Hi all, welcome to today’s blog post where I show case my new embossing powder trios for a glitter on glitter effect.

One thing I love creating is DIY glitter card stock by heat embossing whole card stock panels with embossing glitters. I have pre heat embossed with the new Firey Fun embossing glitter from my Pink-a-licious Trios with WOW! Embossing Powder. While I was in a DIY mood I also have made my glitter paste by using ranger transparent gloss paste and the Cooper Fire Sparkles.

Did you know that the Pink-a-licious Trios are available both in the USA & UK stores.

I have also made a tutorial up on my youtube channel on how I made today’s card.

Craftie Cafe: Avery Elle Tea Time : Watercolouring with Distress Oxides

IMG_8221Design-team-badge-V1

Hi Everyone and welcome to today’s blog post for the Craftie Cafe Design Team. I will be focusing on the Avery Elle Tea Time stampset again which I have watercoloured with Distress Oxide Inks.

I left my colouring to be a more of a free hand watercolouring effect. I was not concentrating to stay within the lines nor was I  being precise. I let the inks do the work and blending themselves by using a saturated wet brush.

I have ink blended with a range of Distress Oxide Ink colours and an ink blending tool on Ranger watercolour cardstock.  When I personally work with Distress Oxide Ink colours and watercolour cardstock I feel that the watercolour cardstock saps up the inks so I usually add more layers than I would on normal cardstock.  Each panel has been blended then spritz with the Ranger Distress Sprayer and picked up with a cloth (you can use a paper towel also).

TIP: When watercolouring use a Archival type ink so the ink does not run when watercolouring in.

To watercolour Distress Oxide inks however is another matter, I find the pigment picks up really well so if you would like a more watercolour effect I personally use a saturated brush. Everyone find their own methods and tricks , each to their own when it comes to watercolouring. I am no expert by all means and I just love to play and have fun.

I have created 3 different cards using the coloured tea cups and distress oxide blended panels.

The sentiments can be interchangeable with other stampsets. For today I have used those that are part of this Avery Elle stampset but with Mother’s day just around the corner you can use Mother’s Day stampsets that suit tea cups.  My mother in law has the best fine china tea cup collection and I just love going over there as I am mesmerised by the design, details and feminine touch they all have.  This card set will be given to my mother in law as her Mother’s Day gift. I love how my mother in law has taught me so much about hand made gifts as she is a seamstress by trade and can make anything look fabulous.

Let me know which additional stampset you would use to make these more for Mother’s Day.

Check out my video on how these all came together.

Here are the 3 card creations.

Craftie Cafe – Avery Elle Tea Time : 3 Cards 3 ways

Hi All, welcome to today’s blog post where I show case the Avery Elle Tea Time stampset and dies for the Craftie Cafe Online Store.  I made these cards with the same layout but different textures and layers using the Chevron cover die, watercolour inks and texture paste. All subtle differences that slightly alter the look of each cards.

For each card I have used the Avery Elle Watercolour inks which I have used as a watercolor wash for each background.

I have also heat embossed the cups of tea and saucers with Lawn Fawn white heat embossing powder which I then coloured them in Clean & Clear Zig watercolour markers.

Here is the first card where I use the Chevron Die as a stencil then add Ranger Texture Paste in Opaque Matte.

For the next card I have ink blended with Distress Oxide inks over the Chevron die as a stencil.

IMG_8160

The last card I have simply added the Chevron die over the top over the colour wash background.

IMG_8161

Each card is a top folding white card base. The layers added have either been foam mounted on coloured cardstock or adhered down with liquid adhesive.

I have made a You Tube making this card trio.

This blog post is for the Craftie Cafe online store.

Happy Paper Crafting Hugs
