A Star

Happy Friday the 13th everyone! Today I am going to share a layout with you that I created using lots of WOW! on 4 different surfaces. This is actually the layout I am using for a class I am teaching at a LSS. I keep hearing so many people say they have never tried embossing because they are intimidated by it. But I am here to say its really pretty easy and can be used in so many different ways and on just about any surface!

First, I used WOW! Embossing Powder Gold Rich Ultra High on the white cardstock to make the brick background.

Second, I used WOW! Embossing Powder Neutral Ultra Shimmer on the chipboard flourishes.

Third, I melted WOW! Embossing Powder Clear Gloss Ultra High in a melting pot and then dipped my patterned paper flowers into. This makes them hard and look glassy, which I just LOVE!

And fourth, I used more WOW! Embossing Powder Gold Rich Ultra High on a metal tin star. After melting the embossing powder, but before it had a chance to cool, I pressed the WOW! Brocade Background Stamp onto the star. This leaves the impression of the stamp in the embossing powder.

Hopefully this will inspire you to give embossing a try if you never have, or maybe to try it on a different surface if you already do embossing.

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to come back tomorrow to see the team post by 6 Girls and A Smoking Gun!!

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…

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…
