British Countryside "Poppies in the Field"

Hi again,

Chris Saunders here with a "British" countryside scene all made from WoW Embossing Powders.

Iv'e used a variety of colours to create this British landscape of "Poppies in the Field"  along with some Free-formed flowers made using melted WoW powders.

To make this card:  Tear a piece of card roughly and place it two thirds of the way up on your card forming a mask. Ink the unmasked section and add Pastel Blue and Pastel Purple powder randomly on the card then heat set.

Ink in sections going further down the card adding colours such as Pastel Yellow,Verdigris, and Pepper as you go heat setting each colour in turn. Go all the way down your card to create a full backgound.
Melt Clear Gloss and Apple Red powder in a melt pot and pour into blobs onto a craft mat. Re-heat each blob a little and add a small dot of Black Twinkle Powder in the centre. Heat set again. When cool, peel these "flower heads" from the craft mat.
Stamp stems using the flourish stamp from the Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set in Green Primary and stick on the flower heads with silicone glue.

Each Landscape you make will turn out to be different so no two cards will ever be the same.  These free-form flowers can be used to decorate any project and you can add variety by using gold glitter or powder for the centres.

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…

We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….

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…
