Foils....

Hi Everyone

wow oct15 006.1 
This month at WOW HQ we have asked to give you ideas on foils.
 
You need a laminator for this project as it is one of the alternative methods to use with foils instead of the heat gun.
Firstly I washed some watercolour paints onto a piece of cardstock then dried it off with the heat gun.
 
I then stamped the stars from the new stamp set 'LET IT SNOW' over the paint with Versamark and then sprinkled bonding powder over this.  I then heat set the stars.  This goes transparent.

Cut a piece of the green foil strip to cover the stars, and place colour upwards over them.  I then took a piece of wax paper (the type you use for die cutting) and placed this over the card and foil.  I then fed the card through the laminator.
 
Peel everything off the card and you are left with the foiled stars and the wax from the paper has transfered to the background of the card, giving a rippled effect.  I then stamped the 'Merry Christmas' in black archival ink. 
 
I then matted this onto green card, and added a ribbon of string and love heart embelishment.
Have a wonderful month and catch up on all things WOW at
 
Take Care

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
