Learn how to make WOW! Changers snow embossing powder. There are lots of specialty powders that puff up and are perfect for snow, but I don’t have so I made an alternative.

Winter Watercolor Backgrounds

Before I get to WOW! Changers snowmaking, let me share these easy watercolor backgrounds. They’re quick and easy. Grab your favorite watercolor paper. Mine is Saunders Waterford High White Cold Press paper.

Cut it to A2 size, 4.25 x 5.5-inches, and die-cut a scrap with a round rectangle die of of your choosing. Wet the A2 size paper with clean water and paint wet on wet stripes with four different blue pigments.

Here I used Daniel Smith Watercolor Phthalo Blue Green Shade, Ultramarine, Mayan Blue Genuine, and Indigo.

While the paint is still wet, splatter on leftover paint from your palette with a watery brush. This will create diffuse snow-like marks in the background.

Ink smoosh the smaller die-cut panel with the leftover ink. Create as many panels as you desire with the remaining paint. Allow the panels to fully dry.

If you have WOW! White Puff powder, that would create excellent fluffy snow. However, I don’t have it in my stash, so I decided to make an alternative. I wanted my snow to be opaque and have sparkly glitter.

Simply mix equal parts WOW! Opaque Bright White with WOW! Changers Glisten to create the perfect opaque white glitter powder. Make sure your panels are completely dry before embossing your DIY snow.

Next, wet a large round brush. A #10 or #12 round brush is recommended to create large splats of snow. Splatter your panels with large drops of clean clear water.

Sprinkle with your DIY snow mixture and melt with your heat tool. I recommend melting the embossing powder from underneath the cardstock to prevent blowing away all that gorgeous glitter. Voila!

Winter Cards

To finish these winter cards, I used Altenew Hello Winter Stamp & Die Set. The white Winter sentiments are cut from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and heat embossed with the DIY snow mixture.

The Winter shadow sentiments are die-cut from Curious Metallic Electric Blue cardstock. The sub-sentiments are stamped in Altenew Obsidian Pigment Ink.

The rounded rectangle panel is grounded with three strips of Curious Metallic Electric Blue cardstock. I added a few Pretty Pink Posh Winter Days confetti and called it done!

    I liked the first card with the initial heat embossing but I agree, the cutout sentiment makes it easier to read. I love how beautiful your backgrounds are! I will use my watercolours to try this. Can any embossing be used with water or only the Wow Changers?

    1. Thanks so much, Giselle! You can “splatter” any embossing powder with water. The finish of the embossing powder will affect the outcome giving a variety of looks. For instance, a translucent powder will look much different than a glitter powder. If you’re looking for the splatters to stand out, I would suggest an opaque powder or glitter powder rather than a translucent. It all depends on the look you’re going for.
