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

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
