Hello everyone, welcome to a very special Blog Hop- Giveaway in collaboration with the WOW! Embossing Powder & Honey Bee Stamps.
I’m Bibi Cameron in the north of Scotland and for today I made bold and bright projects using yummy WOW embossing powder colours.
I also used Nuvo Clear Mark Ink and Versamark Clear Ink and the Tim Holtz stamping platform to stamp the images.
All the papers, images and sentiments in this post are heat embossed with exception of a few sentiments on some of the banners. For those, I used black ink by Simon Says Stamp.
So for the tags in this post, I heat embossed the huge image from Zen Bouquet on different cardstock colours and then I die cut them and put them together as you see in the pictures.
I also used the three small floral stamps from Zen Bouquet to stamp backgrounds and I die cut them with a Gift Tag Die and place them behind the main tags just to add a little bit something.
To create all the tags I used translucent embossing powders: Blue Topaz, Fuchsia fusion; and Opaque embossing Powders: violet and Green metalline.
WOW Primary Translucent Embossing Powders will let light through and so the colour underneath will affect the finished result… In other words, the cardstock colour will affect the final colour of the embossed images.
Just to share a couple of samples, I applied blue translucent embossing powder on blue cardstock so it looks like a watermark (see the tag on the left). Using the same cardstock colour, I applied opaque violet metalline embossing powder and the colour stand out (see the tag on the right).
You will only get pure true colours of primary translucent embossing powders if you use white cardstock to stamp the images and that’s what I did on the card below.
|To make this card I first rubbed an anti-static bag over the paper and using one of the stamps from Spring Blossoms stamp set and I stamped the whole panel using clear ink. I sprinkle a bit of Fuchsia Fusion embossing powder on the top of the panel, then Blue Topaz on the middle and then WOW Gold Rich metallic embossing powder to finally heat set the whole image.
I just wanted to share extra samples and ideas and on this card, you can also see the Blue Topaz Translucent embossing powder real colour.
I applied this blue translucent powder on yellow cardstock and the images look green and on pink and it looks purple, tone on tone it will look clear… I did the same with the translucent Fuchsia embossing powder and this powder on navy blue cardstock looks red … isn’t is awesome!!
For this card, I used Green Metalline Embossing powder which is opaque and it shows a shiny reflection when viewed from different angles.
You can also see this vibrant opaque green colour of embossing powder in the first picture in this post. I applied it on yellow cardstock to make a tag and the colour stands out beautifully.
Have a look at what everyone is making…the next in the hop is Brenda Noelke she is amazing!!!
