Call Me!

 Jennifer Matott here with my first WOW blog post!  So excited to be using these products and sharing my first card that I've made with the stamps and powders! As soon as I saw this stamp set, I KNEW that I wanted to use the red powder!  This color screams WOW!

 First, I started with a sheet of the phone book as my background paper. I save the old books so I can use the pages for drying paintings, wiping up spills, and using the papers as backgrounds! So, this was a perfect match!
 I stamped the embossing ink over the stencil directly on the paper. 
 I used two of the Suzy West colors and one of the WOW metallics to create a gradation effect. I applied each and then used my heat gun to set them. I loved watching the colors melt into one another.  GORGEOUS!  These are the easiest powders to use and so stunning!

Here is a close up of the red and yellow merging together.
 I stamped the framed text stamp with the Skyline Grey puff powder and then the phone booth was stamped with red ink on vellum to layer.

I have to say that these powders are awesome!  I loved experimenting with color combinations and how vibrant and smooth they are! This card will be displayed at the WOW booth at the 2012 CHA.

Here are the products I used:
WOW "Call Me" stamp set- STAMPSET3
WOW Suzy West powder: California Sunshine Regular - SW-WHO6R

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
