Powder Puff team post

Hi WOW! Embossing powder fans, the Powder Puff girls are back to share some lovely projects with you today.

Happy card by DT member Patti Hamil

My project recycles a couple of older supplies. I made a card and used one of the old metal words from Making Memories that was popular a few years ago. I took the Suzy West WOW bubble gum pink and embossed the word. I also took some older scrap paper and embossed the pink edge with the same bubble gum pink powder. Then, I also took a Color Me Crazy white bloom by Petaloo and rubbed the embossing ink pad across the top and sprinkled the bubble gum powder on that too. For the leaves I took green cardstock and used the Call Me stamp and embossed it with the Susy West WOW Earthtone Olive, then handcut the leaves from it. The little blooms were just cut on my ECraft machine.

The wooden Eiffel Tower was painted first, and then randomly stamped with the Wow Gratitude stamp set and embossed with Suzy West Earthtone Pepper regular. The crepe paper ruffle was embossed along the edge using Opaque Bright White. Finally, the edge was embossed in Suzy West Tea Garden Green.

Life is good tag by DT member Birgit Koopsen

Technique: I used a printed label (7Gypsies) that I wanted add color to but I didn't
want the color of the words "Life is good" to change. So I covered the
letters with embossing ink using and embossing pen. Then I used WOW! Clear
Gloss Super Fine to emboss the letters. I did the same with the clock face.

After that I stamped on the upper half of the label with the WOW! Vintage
Wallpaper stamp using black embossing ink (Exquisite from Ecogreen Crafts)
and embossed this too with the Clear Gloss Super Fine. I also did that with
the little metal wheel I added to the clock face.

After all parts were embossed I used distress inks (Ranger) and a piece of
blending foam to color in the rest of the label. The embossed parts act as a
resist and the distress inks will not stick to that. After adding the color
just gently whip the surface with a piece of kitchen paper.

The label was finished with some rub-ons, cute paper birds and a piece of

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…
