Kim Dellow Guest Post - Safe Keeping

Hi everyone, Kim Dellow here with a guest post and I'm excited to share my 3D WOW! Embossing Powder project with you all here on the WOW! Embossing Powder blog.

My 3D project is an altered matchbox that I've called 'Safe Keeping'.


The little heart is made from Melt It! which I've recently reviewed over at my blog. I've also used Pearlescent Gold Satin Pearl embossing powder and a Melting Pot. 

First, I melted some Melt It! on its own and added some red seed beads, poured it out and cut with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Then, I melted the gold powder with some Melt It! to make another heart. When both hearts were cool, I stuck them back to back to get that lovely depth to the heart.


I covered the matchbox with papers and a bit of packaging then added some more WOW! Embossing Powder, in layers, with a glue stick. The colours I used were Earthtone Honey, Earthtone Paprika and a touch of  the Pearlescent Gold Satin Pearl.


Thanks for having me over at the WOW! Embossing Powder blog today, it has been really fun to be able to share with you all. 

Have a creative day.

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW!
