Embossed texture paste

Hello, Maya here with my very first post here at WOW! I am so very happy to be a part of this team, there are so many amazing powders and products to try and I hope I can inspire a bit. I had a lot of fun with this months theme and experimented with embossing on different metal objects around the house and trying out different techniques. Since I'm a cardmaker I still decided to share a couple of cards with you just because it is so much fun making cards and there are heaps of fun techniques to try out to make the card pop.

I made a mask from cardstoch and applied texture paste over it to make the arrows. I then added Metallic Silver WOW! Embossing powder on top and heated it up. Since the texture paste was still wet it started to bubble making a cool effect when the embossing powder melted. For a smooth surface apply the embossingpowder while the paste is wet, let it dry completely and than heat it up to melt the powder.

I cut out the word Always using my Cameo and stamped thinking of you below, using the Everyday Sentiments stamp set

Look at that cool texture! I love applying embossingpowder to texture paste, there are lots of combinations to try with all the different powders WOW! carries and all of the pastes on the market. The combinations are endless. 

I made a bonus card too just because I love the effect of metallic embossing powders on cards. I used the very pretty big stamp in the Collage stamp set and embossed it with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder and it turned out just beautiful! I added some foam letters and stamped one of the sentiments in the same set and embossed it in one of my favorite colors, Primary Fuchsia Fusion, and added a neon pink layer of cardstock to match it. Very pretty!

I hope you got some inspiration and don't forget to take part of this months challenge with a metallic theme.

Take care/

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…

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…
