WOW! Embossing Powder & Newton's Nook Designs Inspiration Week
Happy Monday crafty friends! This week WOW! Embossing Powder & Newton's Nook Designs are partnering up to bring you a fun-filled week of inspiration. So, this means that during this week both design teams will be sharing with you ways to combine WOW! Embossing Powder and Newton's Nook Designs (stencils, stamp and die sets.) Not, only we are going to be sharing projects but, there will be prizes too! So, to find out how you can win a prize please keep on reading this post ↓
To begin with, I started by prepping an A2 size card panel with Embossing Powder Tool. Next, I slightly adhered the Seashells Stencil to the card panel and, I inked up the images from the stencil with WOW! Embossing Ink. Once, the card panel was all inked up with the embossing ink, I carefully removed the stencil from the card panel and, I covered the inked images with WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle. Right after that, I removed the excess from the embossing powder and, I heat set the card panel with the WOW! Heat Embossing Gun Tool. Once, the powder was melted, I trimmed the edges of the card panel a bit smaller than a standard A2 size card base and I set it aside. In the meantime, I ran through the die-cutting machine two of the stax rectangle stitched dies to die-cut a larger frame out of white card stock and a smaller frame out the same color card stock that I used for the card panel. Once, the frames were cut of the card stock, I adhered the backing of the white frame to the card panel with foam mounting tape just to add a bit of dimension to the card panel. As, for the colored card stock frame, I gold heat embossed the image from the Vitamin Sea Stamp Set and, I adhered the backing of the frame to the card panel with double-sided tape as, you can see in the picture above. Lastly, to finish the card off, I adhered the backing of the card panel to an A2 top folding white card base.
For the second example, I repeated the same step for the heat embossing on the card panel. However, I decided to use the Sunscape Stencil instead of the Seashells Stencil. As, for the sentiment, I used the same stamp yet, I changed a few things. First, instead of leaving the outlines from the water drops and some of the sheasell body parts, I decided to use the WOW! Embossing Pen to add embossing ink inside of them so, I could gold heat embossing them as a solid image. Second, right after the heat embossing, I trimmed the edges of the image and, I traced some lines using; a ruler and the heat embossing pen creating that way a frame around the image as you can see in the picture above. Lastly, I adhered the little frame to a piece of white card stock which, I trimmed and adhered to the lower side of the card panel with foam mounting tape. And, to finish the card off, I adhered the card panel to an A2 top folding white card base.
Finally, to finish both cards off, I decided to add some shimmer to the images by using; the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen and by adhering some of the Shimmering Iced Fusion Sequins here and there. To add even more dimension, I decided to add a touch of depth to the card with the Sunscape Stencil by using a darker color marker so, I used R11 and, last but not least, I covered the seashells and the water drops with Glossy Accent for a very shiny shimmery look.
