Not your run of the Mill Powders

Hello everyone..
I wanted to show you some things I have made and point out some of the properties of these powders I have come to LOVE.
They are not called WOW for nothing, ya know!

The powder I used on this project is called:
BLACK GLINT


The reason this is not your "run of the mill" powder is that it is Embossing GLITTER!


I tried to catch the shimmers of the embossed black on the bees, can you see it?


I could have used just a basic black powder or even ink, but by using the BLACK GLINT, it really does give that WOW factor to this card and anything else I have used it on.


On this card, I am just using white but then used the Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder on some of the flowers.


I also used the Glitter Powder to go over the black background to make the black stand out.


I am having so much fun with these powders.


I love that taking the extra couple of minutes to Emboss with Embossing powders, makes all the difference in the world for your projects.
This card I made yesterday:


The WOW Embossing powders made all the difference in the world.


I embossed the phrase in EARTHTONE NUTMEG and the leaf behind the phrase is embossed in PRIMARY BARK.


Because WOW has so many different color families, I always have a powder to match what I am making!
Trust me when I say, A girl can get used to that!
I hope you have enjoyed this post, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today's projects.

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…

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:



STEP ONE

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…
