Autumn tag by Laurence


Hello WOW fans! I'm so excited to share a tag using the triple embossing technique. It's autumn now and I was inspired by the warm colors of the season.

I started with a white tag and added some strips of washi tape to add texture, added gesso. When dry, I used a wet brush to dilute gelatos and neocolor II.   


The Flights of Fancy stamp set is just perfect for the season. I used gold pearl to heat emboss some leaves. Pearl embossing powders are really fun to use and react differently, depending whether you have a light or dark background. You should try them, you won't be disappointed.

I used a separate leaf for the triple embossing technique. I first stamped with a light inkpad and cut around the stamped image.

The leaf is covered with 3 layers of embossing powder. I used Clear Gloss and Metallic Gold Rich. When the last layer was still hot, I gently pressed down my stamp.




I dabbed white glue through my stencil and sprinkled Pumpkin spice sparkles.
You may now add all your elements on your tag.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you will be inspired and join our challenge!
Here's the fabulous products Laurence used to create this gorgeous tag..

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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

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…
