WOW - Spring Has Sprung

The Title gives a clue, that it is my turn to host again for WOW!!
This month as previously mentioned by the DT team we are showcasing the flourescent embossing powders.
Along with Spring/ Easter projects.
Well I love the excuse to do a little bit of home decor at holiday times.
So I have opted to make this cute little wall Hanging.

So what did I use!
Well a small polystyrene ring.
3.5mtrs green ribbon 15mm wide
0.5 mtrs pink organza ribbon
some small pins (you may prefer to use glue if children are around)
Versamark ink pad
Heat gun
WOW! Stamp sets: Fauna & How Does Your Garden Grow.
Stick on gems.
White Cardstock
Start with polystyrene ring and green satin ribbon, pin in the end of the ribbon as shown.
Continue to wrap the ribbon around the ring, overlapping slightly on each turn, to ensure even coverage.
Making sure to leave enough ribbon to make a handle. Pin in ends again.
Stamp and emboss 9 leaves from the fauna stamp, using the green embossing powder.
Cut them out and place to one side,
Take the floral Stamps of your choice and place them on a large acylic block , stamp and emboss in the other three colours of embossing powder.
Cut them out and start assembling all these pieces onto your wreath,
leaves first.
Carry on till you are happy.
Finally, tie a bow with the organza ribbon and place to hide the ends of the green ribbon.
I hope you have enjoyed todays project.

  1. Great minds and all that - I love your take on the spring bouquet and layering the outlines and shaded flowers is inspired :)

  2. Loving this! Great minds do think alike as I have made a bouquet project for my post this week too!

  3. This is great Tracy - I love styrofoam wreaths, they always look classy when decorated. Those colours shout out flowers and I've also done something similar. By the time my post goes on it'll look like I've copied everyone else:( Oh, well we're all obviously on the same wavelength x

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…

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…

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…
