Tag- lifting with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my WOW! Embossing Powders post.
This month WOW! DT girls are craft lifting each other. So after a long scroll over my team mates posts I picked this project as my inspiration from SUE's lovely ATC project.

I made a tag and not an ATC, but I used just the same techniques and a lot of WOW! POWDERS.
 I covered this tag with a thick layer of VersaMark ink and sprinkled a mix of powders using this salt and pepper " tool" as my team mate did on her project.
Here are the powders I used on this tag:
Metallic Brass
Vintage Candy Cane
Metallic gold rich
Passion fruit
Metallic copper sparkle
Amber rose
First I made the lower layer; then glued old vintage book page pieces with gel medium and then heat embossed  it again with more gold and brass powders. The stamped images were made with pigment black ink and heat embossed over with Clear powder. The only non WOW! products here are trims, pearls  and Tim Holtz small stickers.
 Stamps used for this tag:

Hope you like my small tag- lifting and now it's your turn as this is our WOW! MONTHLY CHALLENGE and if you participate, you can win some gorgeous goodies to play with!


  1. I love the abundance of powders and the grainy look of the embossing, the tag is gorgeous!

  2. Absolutely beautiful in every way. j.

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…
