Fab Foil Post: Jo Herbert

Hi All, welcome to my very first blog post for WOW.  I am very excited to show case the Fab Foil products in today's' post. I have to say these products have not only been easy to to play with but so much fun at the same time. WOW has such a beautiful array of foil colours. 

Today I have used the Violet foil with watercolouring. When using the bonding powder with the fab foil I have found that the foil becomes so permanent on the cardstock that I can easily watercolour over the foil image. The possibilities are endless and my mind just sparked with so many light bulb moments in this process. 

I have repeat stamped the Happy sentiment from Mr Wow's wonderful words stampset in a circle mask. 

Using the WOW's embossing pad I stamped the leaves from the Flights of Fancy stampset then heat embossed with the bonding powder leaving it sticky whilst placing the Violet Fab Foil over the stamped image inserting the cardstock in between a folded piece of copy paper then feeding it in a laminator.

The bonding powder has worked so well with the foil that I was able to watercolour over the Fab foil with Kuretake watercolours and an aqua brush painter.

After cutting out each watercoloured image I placed this on the card over the main circle stamped image. 

I have created a You Tube on how I created and played with the fab foil and created today's card. 

I hope you enjoyed today's card creation and video. 

Happy Paper crafting hugs.


  1. A really pretty card Joanne and love the masked circle with the sentiment inked all over it, and then the beautiful foiled leaves with just that bit of colour look great over the top. I just wondered if it is possible to use the bonding powder with the foil without passing it through a laminator. I have read that you can stamp with the embossing ink, add the bonding powder, heat set it, and then add the foil, and after removing the excess foil heat again with your heat tool to make sure it is set. Is this possible?

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…

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…
