Create your own embossing powder colours

Hello to you all... It's Sarah here!

This month, our theme is Halloween so I thought I would show you how to create the perfect Halloween colour using Wow embossing powders... Once that you have created Halloween orange embossing powder, you will have the perfect colour to make anything Halloween inspired. I transformed a white favour bucket into a Halloween inspired mini treat bucket!


When melting the powders, I always add in a small amount of clear embossing powder to the mix as it helps the powders start melting quicker. Add the powders into a mini foil tray and heat underneath with a heat gun until the powders turn into a molten liquid. (Remember to hold the foil tray with pliers as it gets very hot)!

To create the Halloween orange colour I mixed the following powders:
Clear Embossing Powder
Sherbert Embossing Powder
Lemon Embossing Powder (use double the amount of this colour)




I have just ordered this mold to make some mini pumpkin earrings!

You can also layer colours to get different colours and effects...
I started with a layer of  Clear Embossing Powder and then added a layer of Lemon Embossing Powder then added a layer of  Sherbert Embossing Powder then a final layer of Lemon Embossing Powder to get the orange colour shown below. Between each colour, I let the embossed powder cool before inking with clear ink and adding another layer of colour.




With mixing colours, the possibilities are endless...

I mixed Apple Red Embossing Powder with Metallic Gold Rich Sparkle to create this wonderful red and gold sparkle colour to use on Christmas cards.





We would love to see what colours you create, why not share your colour creations on our Wow Embossing Powder facebook page or share with us the colour of embossing powder that you would like to see added to the range.

You can see all the colours available on The Wow Embossing Powder Website

Happy Embossing!

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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
