Tree of Love

Hi, Rachel here with my project for this months blog challenge, Romance & Love.
I have gone with an altered canvas using paint, stencils, stamps and, of course, WOW! Embossing Powder.

The WOW! products used for this project are:

Tickled Pink Fluorescent Embossing Powder
Metallic Silver Super Fine Embossing Powder
Is It A Bird? Clear Stamp Set

Please read on if you would like to see a step by step of this project.

Don't forget to join in with our Challenge to have the chance to win a set of 12 embossing powders of your choice and keep popping back to see all the lovely projects by our talented Design Team.

Firstly I painted my canvas using pink acrylic paint and then dry brushed over the base colour with white.

Using punchinella (sequin waste), stencil through using white and then green acrylic paint.

Using Distress Ink, edge around the canvas to give some definition and then through a stencil dab a pigment ink (nice and sticky) and heat emboss with the Tickled Pink Fluorescent embossing powder.  

Stamp the hearts from the Is It A Bird? clear stamp set in the opposite corners and then stamp and emboss the heart tree in Metallic Silver; matt & layer onto a die cut shape of your choice and mount onto the centre of the canvas.  

Well, that's all for now.

Thanks for stopping by

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…

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…
