WOW! Embossing | Clear Matt Dull & Mixed Media Embossing Brush

Coffee & Love Stamp Set combines two of my all-time favorite things, coffee, and flowers. Add WOW! Embossing Powder and it’s a match made in heaven! Coffee Lovers Digital Paper Pack created a quick and easy background.

After Copic coloring, I used the Mixed Media Embossing Brush to heat emboss the leaves and to-go cup top with WOW! Clear Matt Dull embossing powder.

This gave the leaves a waxy feel and made the lid feel like plastic. The matt finish was more in-line with the muted color palette than a gloss finish.

Copic Markers

Leaves & flower centers | YG91, YG93, YG99
Coffee cup wrap | Y26, Y28

WOW! Embossing Pen “Coloring”

I must have been hungry when I was choosing my stamps because so many of them are food-related. The Sweetness Stamp is simply amazing with its sketchy style.

Graciellie’s Rustic Wood Digital Paper Pack is a new favorite! I’ve used it as a background for the last three cards. Look at the detail. So pretty!

This time I “colored” the areas to be embossed with the WOW! Embossing Pen. I was absolutely stunned with how well these glitter embossing powders stuck to the pen ink.

I kept the embossed parts of the ice cream cone sketchy like the illustration and colored the heart solid.

Copic Markers

Flowers | RV66, RV63, RV52, B00
Leaves | YG21, YG23, YG63

Hand-Drawn Heat Embossing

The Fresh Start Stamp Set is so cheerful and encouraging. This time I printed the sentiment at the bottom of my cardstock and trimmed it to create a sentiment strip.

WOW! Embossing | Cosmic Trio & Embossing Pen

After coloring the cup and flowers I added two hand-drawn stripes with the WOW! Embossing Pen. In retrospect, I should have curved the Copic shading on the cup as well.

The hand-drawn stripes are embossed with WOW! Cosmic Trio inspired by Seth Apter. This powder is a gorgeous mix of teal and platinum metallic powders.

Knock off any stray powder from the leaves with a dry paintbrush before embossing. After embossing I reinforced the leaf outline with a black fineliner.

Embossing the Digital Sentiment

Cardmakers often emboss sentiments, but how do you emboss a digital sentiment? Trace it with the WOW! Embossing Pen of course!

WOW! Embossing | Clear Gloss power & Embossing Pen

This iris image from the Family Love Stamp Set is stunning and comes with tons of dainty sentiments. The WOW! Embossing pen has a firm nib making tracing sentiments a breeze. I embossed this sentiment with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder.

Copic coloring this iris was the most fun! I had recently colored several purple flowers so I Googled other varieties of iris and came up with this. I adore the purple pattern on some of the petals.

The petal on the far right looks like a big juicy caterpillar to me. Be sure to watch the videos for details on how I colored this if you’re interested.

    Such beautiful flowers, especially the iris. Great ideas with the embossing. I wish I had a decent printer to do this.

    1. Thanks, Christine. I do love my printer. Though it was pricey, my family and I get a ton of use out of it. In lieu of printing at home, you can have your layouts printed at a local copy shop, Like FedEx/Kinkos too. That’s what I did before investing in a color laser printer.
