Use your Moulds to decorate mirrors

Hi again

Christine here with the February blog post.  I am leaving the Design team for a while so this will be my last post for this year. Iv'e really enjoyed being on the Design Team so I must take this opportunity of thanking all at WoW for their support, kindness, encouragement and their lovely products work with. They certainly do inspire and to get your creative juices flowing. Check out my Pinterest boards to see some of the WoW projects Iv'e made since being on the Design Team.  Click here


 The embossing powders, stamps and foils etc are exceptional quality and Iv'e enjoyed creating with them in the past two years.

This month's project theme is "glass" - As I love the WoW moulds, Iv'e decorated a mirror using embossing powders melted in melt pot. I found one of my old mirrors to upcycle.  I melted some gold powders in a melt pot then poured the melted powder into the beautiful WoW heart mould.  I then wire-wrapped each heart and stuck them onto the mirror. Other embellishments and moulds can be used to add decoration - perhaps you could use the WoW  tiny daisies which would look fabulous.

To stick the hearts onto the glass I used Silicone glue.

Prtoducts used were 

Metallic Gold Rich
Metallic gold Rich Pale
Silicone Mould -  Heart
Silicone Mould - Daisy

Other products used:
Melt pot
Silicone Glue
Beaded wire

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…
