Thank You Card

Thank you card by Neil Burley

I'm soooo excited! I've been allowed to break the press embargo on information about the new products  being released at Hobbycrafts exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham starting on 8th November. The reason I'm particularly excited is that one of them is the 'NB Canvas' clear stamp - which is my own design! The other new product featured today is the new Melt-It powder!

You will need:
- WOW! White Puff
- WOW! Bright White (Regular)
- WOW! Bright White (Super Fine)
- WOW! Melt-it Powder
- WOW! NB Canvas clear stamp
- WOW! Gratitude clear stamp set
- WOW! Flower mould
- Disposable foil pie dish for melting powder in
- Heat gun
- kraft card stock (image shows 7"x5" card)
- low-tack masking tape or Post-it note for masking

To make the card:
Start by making the mask for the middle of the card: stick down the 'Thanks' and gratitude sentiment from the WOW! Gratitude clear stamp set onto an acrylic block. Ink it up and print it onto a piece of low tack masking tape. Cut it out round the image and stick the masking tape down in the middle of the card.

Ink up the WOW! NB Canvas clear stamp and print it onto the card. Cover with WOW! White Puff, tap off the excess and heat set. Allow to cool completely.

Ink up the 'Thanks' and gratitude sentiment once more, this time printing the image in the masked area on the card. Cover with WOW! Bright White (Regular), tap off the excess and heat set. Allow to cool.

Melt a tablespoon full of WOW! Melt-It Powder in a disposable pie dish by either:
- heating from beneath with a heat gun
- placing it on a Melt Pot (as in the photo)
- placing it on a baking tray in an oven at around 130 deg C

Be careful of the molten powder - it's flippin' hot! Hold the pie dish firmly with a non-heat-conductive tool, e.g. wooden peg or tweezers. Pour the molten powder into the mould. If the liquid thickens, or the mould does not fill, it's getting too cold, so reheat it and try again. Any poured powder that doesn't work can be returned to the pot and remelted.
Once the powder is completely set, bend the mould over your finger and pop out the moulded flowers. Any over-pour will cause webbing between the petal shapes - this can be removed while still warm with a sharp craft knife. Continue moulding until you've used up your molten powder. Keep any extra flowers for use in other projects in an old embossing powder jar.
Finally, stick down the flowers to the card using Glossy Accents or other glue designed to stick non-porous surfaces. Hold down until the glue grabs and then allow to dry completely.

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…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

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…
