How to create dome letters with WOW Embossing Powders


Hi all!
This is Bianca again and this time I have a little tudorial for you. As nearly every crafter I love a little bit of decadence. It´s okay if something is not totaly flat for bringing more WOW! on a project. 
With WOW! Embossing Powders it´s easy to create your own dome letters, stickers ore any shape just as you like it.

All what you need is:
*WOW! Embossing Glitter ore any WOW! Powder (mine is Metalic Gold Rich Sparkle)

*cardstock paper
*piercing tool

If you want to see the tudorial read more:




First cut shapes ore letters from your cardstock paper. I have used some die cuts from Sizzis but you can cut your own too. Take care the paper is cardstock not normal writing paper and no chipboard. 
"ARMIN" is the name of my 9 years old son who loves everything gold actually :o)


On this photo you can see 3 steps. Each on a own letter.
First you have to prepare the cardstock letter with your embossing stamppad.
Than put the powder on the letter. DON´T snip away the excess as it will build the dome!!!
With a piercing toll ore a pecile you can gently slide the letter out of the excess (as I have done it with the A on the photo)


Preheat your oven at 120°C. If the oven is on the right temperature you can put in the letters on a baking tray with baking paper and give it in the middle of your oven.
At 120°C the powders will melt slowly. That´s essential as if the temperature is to hot the powders will melt until they are a liquit and than they would run and the dome effect would be lost. 
In about 5 to 7 minutes the powders will be meltet but it depends from your oven so take care of it! Than remove it from your oven and let it cool down.

Repeate this on the bagside of your shape if you need the dome on both sides as on my keychain. If you need it for scrappbooking you can leave the  bagside plane.

After cooling down you can do the same steps again with clear embossing powders for a more shiny effect. If you need it more shabby you must not do this as one layer is enough for the dome.

The material is soft enough for make holes with a piercing tool after finishing it.

Have fun!

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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
You can check out a bit about them HERE along with our other fabulous DT members.
