Flower Card by Susanne

Hi my dear crafty friends!

Susanne here and this is my debut at the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog today. I am very excited and proud that I am part of this talented team! I like to share this colourful flower card. I started the card with a watercolour background. Therefor I used my inktense blocks and added lots of gold dots on top using the Gold Rich Powder together with the Funky Border Strip clear stamps. I picked the round dots, stamped them with clear embossing ink side by side and added the powder. To give it a more random look I wiped away some of the powder with a brush, before I heat set it. I smeared the edges of the background layer with white acrylic paint.

Let's talk about the embellishments: I used different die cuts that go under my paper flowers.

The dies to create these 3d paper flowers come from My Favourite Things and Marianne Design. Some are layered ones, some are roll up flowers. To give them more interest I added Heart Throb Embossing Glitter to their edges. I just pressed them onto the Embossing Pad, so that the edges were inked up. I used Iced Silver Glitter on the white rolled rose.

I'm sure you'd like to get some more information on this beautiful feather. I used the Feathers Silicone Mold. I combined Melt-it Powderr with Pink Lady and Heart Throb. I don't mix it very much, so that the feather gets different shades of color.

The sentiment is also a die, unfortunately I can't remember from which company. I inked it up completely and embossed it with Gold Rich powder.

I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by today! xx Susanne.

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…
