Sunshine around us: WOW style

Hello, my dear Wow friends! It's Irit here again and this time I am going to share my new page made with lots of gold and yellow and a lot of sunshine around us.
I took this photo during our Georgia (the country, not the state) last summer trip and this fantastic fresh sunflower was all I needed for this summer shining page.

I used Pion's Designs papers (but nobody can see it after all this messy and massive misting, painting and embossing).
The basic mists were made with Tando Creative masks (flowers and leaves). Then those green dots were heat embossed with Suzy West Earthtone Olive Regular embossing powder(I used a clear embossing ink over the  Dots mask ) and heat embossed it after.
The K&Co velvet title was also heat embossed with Suzy West Sierra Sunrise gold embossing powder.
The flower chipboard from A2Z Scraplets was white inked (as this bare brown gives all embossing powders some mute look). Then I heat embossed the leaves with the same Earthtone Olive and added some Suzy West Tea Garden Green powders here and there.
The flowers were covered with some WOW Rich Gold Regular powder and a small portion of Suzy West California Sunshine.
So this whole page is a piece of shiny gold, just as this sunflower was.

Hope you like my use of WOW powders on this page! Thanks for reading this post and I sure love your lovely comments!

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…

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…
