Hello dear friends! Martha Lucia here to share with you an inspirational card that I made using a foiling technique for the main images and some embossing details to complement my design. Take a look at my card:

Creating this card was a simple process:
1. Cut the card base using Melon Mambo card stock. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2".
2. Cut a second layer using a piece of designer paper in a clear tone. I used one in beige color. The size is 4"x5-1/4". 
3. Take some colors of PowderPuff Chalk Ink or any other ink and create some distress over the designer paper.

4. Take a Secret Garden Stamp and ink this with WOW Embossing Pad. Stamp this over the decorated paper created in step before and cover it with WOW Clear Gloss Super Fine Embossing Powder. 

5. Melt the powder with the WOW Heat Tool and leave this piece aside for now.

6. Cut a medium heart using very vanilla card stock and a framelit. Again, ink the Secret Garden Stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamp the image over the heart.

7. Cover the image stamped over the heart with WOW Bonding Powder.

8. Melt the Bonding Powder with the WOW Heat Tool and paste the foil over the images. If you consider it necessary, you can re-heat the stamped image to activate the adhesion of the Fab Foil. In  my model I used three different colors of Fab Foil: Red, Blush and Teal.

9. Take the initial decorated layer and add one strip of lace and heart banner or card stock. I tied everything with two gold staples. Then paste the foiling heart using zapdots or dimensionals. 
Stamp your sentiment using one of words included on the stamp set WOW Mr. Wow's Wonderful Words using VersaFine Sephia and WOW Clear Gloss Regular Embossing Powder and melt with WOW Heat Tool

10. To finalize the decoration I used one small heart that I made with White Makin's Clay and cut with a small heart punch. I inked the heart with WOW Embossing Pad and covered it with WOW Metallic Gold Rich Regular Embossing Powder. Melt the powder with the WOW Heat Tool.

11. Paste the embossed heart to the card using Helmar Premiun Craft and tie some doodles of melon thread.

12. Assemble your card by pasting the decorated layer over the card base.

I hope you enjoyed my card and tutorial, and share your creation with us in our challenge using the embossing techniques and Wow Products.

See you soon!

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…
