Blog Hop List:
WOW! Embossing Powder <---- you are here!
Donna Mikasa

I was lucky enough to get a chance to play along and create a card with two of Altenew Stamps: Striped Florals and Beautiful Lady. Here's what I came up with:



I have been obsessed recently with watercolouring so I stamped and embossed the flowers from Striped Florals with WOW Ebony Regular (UK, US) and our brand spanking new WOW! Ultra Slow Drying Ink Pad (UK, US), watercoloured them and very carefully cut them out!

I then melted down some WOW! Melt It(UK, US) and Ebony Regular Embossing Powder and poured it into the WOW! Buttons Silicone Mould (UK, US). If you would like to learn how to make your own embellishments, visit our Youtube channel for a great tutorial! I had some leftover so I make little diamante droplets on my none stick craft mat to add as additional accents. I adhered the buttons to the flowers with dimensional glue (Pinflair) and set them aside to dry.

One of my favourite embossing powder techniques is to use it on sticky red tape. Sticky red tape is heat resistant, so it is perfect for heat embossing with. I attached my tape to my card in diagonal stripes, peeled off the release strip and sprinkled these Embossing Glitters: Pacific Wave (UK, US), Shocking Pink (UK, US) and Mermaid's Tails (UK, US) in little parts one at a time to get a multicoloured effect. I them heatset it when I was happy that all of the tape was covered. Here is a close up of the heat embossing in all its delicious textured glory: 




I then attached the card to a grey cardstock card blank. Then I stamped and cut out my sentiment and attached that to the card with dimensional foam squares. I then attached my flowers (after a lot of deliberation) and added my DIY diamante droplets.

I hope you enjoyed my card :) Thank you for stopping by! Your next stop is Yana Smakula who I am sure has created an amazing project!

Take care and happy hopping,

Tania x

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…
