Colorful Hellos with Different Materials

Have ya ever used a product for the very first time and had your jaw drop? You know, when you use something and say out loud "Where have you been all my life?" There have been a few of those in my few paper crafting years but the latest one is all because of WOW Embossing Powders!!! I know I know, you are asking what makes them so different right? Well I'm here today to try and show ya.

Hey there everyone, Erika Taylor here today with my first blog post as a Wow Embossing Powders Design Team member (say that 5 times fast). I will have plenty of tutorials for you during my term. but today I wanted to Keep It Simple. It is all about the things you can emboss so here we go...

I had this beautiful Susie Bee Studios paper staring at me and thought hmmmm, this will be perfect for what I want to share with you. First off Wow Embossing Powders are amazing on the tried and true paper. As you can see in the photo below, I've used 2 different embossing powders. First, I've used Whirly Pop to accent the paper designs and then I used *swoon* the Neutral Ultra Shimmer Regular to accent the edges of the paper itself. You would do this the same way you'd distress ink your edges, but substitute Versamark ink instead so you can emboss it with powder.

Next I used Whirly Pop and Bodacious Blue embossing powders sprinkled together on a metal butterfly. I LOVE how this turned out. If you want to mix powders, just sprinkle on one at a time using a small embossing powder spoon. Perfect right?

So we've covered paper and metal. How about hard plastic? Will Wow Embossing powders work on plastic? ABSOLUTELY!!! I again, used Neutral Ultra Shimmer Regular on this button and transformed it for blah to WOWZERS. Let us not forget about hard acrylic though. That purdy little Basically Bare flower is embossed using Whirly Pop Embossing Powder. Ain't it cute

Last but not least I tried it on Chipboard. I used the glitter embossing powder called Bodacious Blue for the letters. For the H I regularly embossed using Versamark and for the i, I embossing over a little bit of Gesso, just to see what the difference would be. Love how the Gesso letter looks a little distressed.

So there ya have it!!! A few great reasons to love Wow Embossing powders. I haven't found a material yet that they don't work with. (including felt, fabric, ribbon, and wood)

Should I show ya the finished card? Did ya say WOW Please? I thought so hahaha.
Here it is, my finished card showcasing some of the wonderful things you can do with WOW Embossing powders.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and letting us know what ya think. If there is something you would like me to create to showcase Wow Embossing Powders, please let me know. Until next time

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…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
