Shadows and Hearts with Wow Embossing Powders

Happy Valentines Day everyone.I so love this holiday simply because of my love for anything romantic. Sharing your heart with someone, making Valentines cards with you children, phoning your parents to say thank you. All a part of Valentines Day here and I'm so glad I get to share a little with all of you.

Hey there everyone, Erika Taylor here today with DAY 3 of the Wonderful WOW Valentines/Love Hop. We at WOW, like doing things a little different, and I hope that you enjoy the sneak peek of the project I created for my wonderful husband for Valentines Day.
For this project I used Whirly Pop, Cable Car Red and Ultra High Gold embossing powders by WOW. I love how these powders work and they didn't let me down with the altered cigar box I created. Here is a little peek for ya... Such a tease right???

Now I've got many more photos on my blog of this Altered Cigar Box, so hop on over to take a look. Don't forget to leave some love here and on my blog, because I think there just may be some Valentines Treats to give away at the end of the week.... just saying hehehe


  1. Fabuous project, Erika! I have a thing for boxes and this one is just over the top! Your sneak peek photo is very intriguing too... couldn't wait to see what it was! Great job!

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…

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…
