Christmas Card

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by the WOW! Embossing Powder, U.S. blog!!

Today I am going to share with you a Christmas card I created for the upcoming Christmas season here in the U.S. But first I want to start off by saying I am SORRY for the picture quality. I have been without a camera for a little bit now (horrible I know!) so these were taken with my phone. BUT....that is all going to change very soon cause my sweet sweet wonderful husband informed me on Saturday that he bought me a new one and it will be here this week!! I am super excited and can't wait for it to arrive and start trying it out. So by the time my next post is due I will be able to provide much better pictures for you all.

But back to my card now....I used some left over paper scraps from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Christmas collections (loved this collection!!), the Merry & Bright stamp set from the Suzy West WOW! Collection, and both Metalline Green and Opaque Bright White WOW! Embossing Powders.
 And here are some closeups of the WOW! items.
 I just love this stamp by Suzy....love how the letters are in a block and that they are different sized. Makes for a really fun looking sentiment.
For the Christmas Tree embellishment I used my WOW! Embossing Pen and ran it all over the tree. Since the tree was slightly indented it made it really easy to use the pen on. I then just poured my powder in it, tapped off the excess, and heated it up.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Warmly,
Sherrie!

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…
