Faux “Wax Seals” with Therm O Web Zots

Hi everyone, and happy Wednesday! If you are looking for my Hero Arts & BasicGrey Grand Bazaar Blog Hop post, please click here. Huge thanks to all of you who visited during the hop and left such sweet comments. You still have until 11:59pm PST tonight to leave comments along the hop to win one of two amazing Grand Bazaar prize packages. Good luck!

AudreyPettit Thermoweb GetawayCardSetThis week, the design team is sharing fun and creative uses for Zots adhesive dots on the Therm O Web blog. Of course most folks know that Zots glue dots are perfect for adhering embellishments to paper, or just about anything else for that matter. But Zots can also be used in many more creative ways to actually become the embellishment, all on their own.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb GetawayCardSet2On the blog are all sorts of fabulous ideas for adding glitter or flower soft to Zots dots and Zips lines, and heat embossing, too. For my project, I came up with an easy way to make faux wax seal embellishments with 3D Zots.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb GetawayCardSet3These wax seals are so fun and versatile, and are surprisingly easy to make. Simply cover a 3D Zots dot with embossing powder, heat until melted, and impress with a small rubber stamp to create a pattern.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb GetawayCardSet4Simple and fun, right? And better yet, the seals can be made with any color embossing powder, and impressed with any number of texture plates, stamps, or even household items, for tons of unique handmade embellishment ideas.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb GetawayCardSet5I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial, along with some tips and tricks I discovered along the way, up on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

Thanks so much for stopping by! It’s our first day of summer vacation today! Can I get an Ah-Yeah?

  1. Yay! for summer break, I think it is so cute that you seem to get as excited as the kids (and teachers, lol). I love the design of your cards. You always layer so many elements just right. I especially like the twine and ribbon bows that tie it all together. Keeping my fingers crossed for the BG giveaway, I adore that collection with those bright, vibrant colors.

  2. Wow! Those wax seals are gorgeous, Audrey! Such pretty delicate designs on them! They look perfect on your lovely cards! And, yeah for the beginning of summer vacation!:-)
