Silver & Purple Gradation Card

Hello! Nicole here and I am back with another brand-new card to share with you today. Actually today's card will be the last project I am sharing as a DT member for WOW. It has been so great being in the team and sharing my passion for heat embossing with all of you.

So, as a last project, I wanted to share something colorful and pretty, AND easy to create! I used watercolor paper and stamped De-Vine stamp set with Versamark. I used my favorite power of all, the super fine Silver embossing powder and heat set it. I think the pattern of this stamp set is just so gorgeous!

Then, I used Seedless Preserves and Dusty Concord Distress Inks and inked up the whole surface. This create resist and dye the non-heat set portion of the paper. I love how those dark purple colors make the silver images pop out.

I simply die cut the main piece with some stitched rectangular die and used foam dots to pop it out on a white cardbase. I added few sequins to dress up the card front and added sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed today's project! Thank you for stopping by.




  1. Background stamps, such as the De-Vine, are great to make your own "paper". Clean and simple but lovely.
    And good luck for the future!

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…
