A Card and a Canvas- Erika Taylor

I love taking color and making it sing. Rainbows, butterfly wings and flowers are all full of inspiration for me and today I've got 2 projects to share with you that are BURSTING with color.

Hello everyone, Erika Taylor here today to share with you an easy to create card and a whimsical canvas. First lets start with the card. For this piece, I used a combination of Bubble Bum, Cotton Candy and Rich Gold embossing powder. I took the cotton candy and Bubble Gum embossing powders and covered a piece of White card stock with them. I heat embossed and let completely cool.

Once the card stock was cool, I put a flower stencil on top and with emboss ink, covered the piece with ink. Then poured gold embossing powder on top, removed the stencil, heat set and VOILA!!!

Love the look of double embossing. You can create your own custom backgrounds using any colours and stencils. I also added a little Embossing Powder to the handmade flower to tie it all together.

Here is the finish project tied up in a pretty pink bow.

Now I wanted to create something a wee bit whimsical, so I grabbed a few of my favorite colors of Embossing Powder and used them to "paint" this canvas. Embossing Pens are a great way to get perfect little details on a project. For this canvas, I used a combination of Sour Lemon, Bay Area Blue, Whirly Pop, Primary Bark,Pepper and Bodacious Blue.

And again the final project full of whimsy and color. The background is created using Faber Castell Gelatos.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Wow Embossing Powders Blog today. I'd love for you to tell me what your favorite color of embossing powder is?

Until next time
Erika Taylor

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:


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…
