How to use Melt it Powder to add 3D to your projects.

Hello and nice to see you here at WOW Embossing Powders...  Donna here tonight to share a tutorial on how to make your own Dew Drops using WOW Melt It Powders.  I must warn you that this is VERY ADDICTIVE and once you start you will want to make some of every colour.

Before we start...   Can I please point out that I don't own a melting pot and I use my heat gun.  If you are going to have a try at this can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be very CAREFUL!  The melt it powder  is VERY HOT and it will BURN!   Please have a bowl of water handle just in case, to pop you hand in straight away. It is just a friendly warning,  using heating  tool of any form can burn and its good to be on the safe side. 

Right time to get started,  I hope you have made a nice cuppa because there is a few photos :-)


You will need Melt it powder, any Regular coloured powder ( I have used Metallic Copper), Heat proof non stick craft mat, mixer( kebab sticks are great for this) pliers to hold tart foil container.

Mix a teaspoon of melt it powder with 1/5 teaspoon ( just a little bit)
of the regular colour powder of choice 
Mix these very well 
Make a spout at one end of for tart foil tin for pouring. 
Take pliers and attach to opposite end from spout. 
Hold up high enough for you to place your heat gun under the tin and start to heat the melt art. 
keep the heat on the underside of the tin.  If you do it from above while 
there is still powder it will blow away 
Once it is completely melted you can bring the heat gun
 to the top and push liquid towards the spout.
pour out gently moving along to create your drops

As the melt it starts to cool off it will be harder to create perfect round ones.
  Don't worry there is no waste. 
Just pick up the odd shaped ones and place back into tin, reheat 
and pour :-)

My favourite ones to make are clear ones as  they go on any project. 
 I have some to show you here with the copper ones I just made. 
Once cooled (which is only a few seconds) push lightly with your finger and they will 
come away easily from the craft sheet.  
Now you are ready to start adding some 3D by applying them to your projects.
Hope you enjoyed my wee share , Have fun and please remember to BE CAREFUL!  xox Donna

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…
