Thank you butterfly


It's a new year and also a new challenge here at the WOW blog. Today it's me, Maya, who is typing. This month's theme is anything goes so you can do whatever you feel like as long as you use WOW products or heat embossing on your project. 

I finally got to use a new stamp set that I designed called Mariposa and this large butterfly is my favourite. I wanted it to fill up most part of a standard sized card front and it turned out better than I imagined. I embossed it in Black Twinkle embossing powders. Its a really pretty black embossing powder with glitter in it. It's very easy to color the butterfly after embossing it, I used Spectrum Aquas and some Sparkle pens on top to make the whole butterfly shimmer. 


Look at all that glitter! So pretty! I used the Pick n Mix set for my sentiment and made a striped strip using the long border stamp in the set. I decorated with sequins and some gold thread and my card was done. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you like the new release as much as I do. So many pretty powders and stamps and a new clear embossing ink! Yay! 

Materials used for my card:
Black Twinkle Embossing powder
Mariposa stamp set
Pick n Mix stamp set

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!
