Life is beautiful (even in 3d recycling )

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this time with my new recycled 3d project.

This altered project was just a wooden base with a hole that I found at home, a 10 cent kids plastic magnifying glass and a fantastic A2Z Scraplets title (it's the little things). From all of those I made  this lovely altered art piece, but it couldn't  be done without those gorgeous WOW! Embossing Powders  that  I used over it.

The wooden base was covered with Glitz paper layers . The title was inked, clear embossed with Clear  Gloss Regular  embossing  powder , layer after layer to make it glossy and glass look and then I made a random stamping over it.

Wow embossing  Metallic Copper powder was  the main coverage of the plastic glass. Easy to make : just add some Watermark embossing ink randomly over it , spread the powder and heat it. Nothing happens to plastic, believe me.  Then I added some Tim Holtz Picket fence  crackled paint  over my
embossed Copper powder and  Pastel Blue embossing powder over it while the paint was still  wet.

The 7 Gypsies silver spoon was coloured into the copper colour   with alcohol ink and I added this Tim Holtz sticker to say that small things Create Life.

The background wings were molded and casted with clear embossing powder (as I am a Dentist, molding paste is on my  non crafting table all the time, so I just used it) and I added Blue Blast  embossing  glitter inside the clear powder casting. The white chipboards from Tando Creative were painted and glittered with Clear  Sparkle  embossing glitter  to make the front wings, the bird was also painted  white and heat embossed with  Opaque  Bright White Regular  embossing powder , then  painted over it with some blue paint, as well as Prima pink flower arrangement.. I covered the square base with wood grain washi tape  and  I added this Glitz Life is Beautiful sticker on the front.
As my final touch the brass owl from Handmade Halo was added for the life wisdom and I also connected a 7 Gypsies charm to the spoon. To keep this title in the up right position I used 3 kitchen tooth picks and a lot of hot glue.
So now it's your turn to take our challenge: make your own 3d project with WOW! Embossing Powders products (at least one, please) and you can win some gorgeous prizes! Go for it! It's so easy to win once you try!

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…

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…
