Don't forget to tell your crafty friends about our challenges, let's share the love !!

As usual I go with a simple a design, what I love about this is the focus is all on the heart. Now I say the challenge is Triple Embossing, but I may have cheated a little bit !!! 

I sort of done a double triple embossed effect, it could catch on to become a new technique, who knows !!! 
Let me explain
I always work on thick chipboard for this technique as it gives stability, if you're putting lots of layers on card stock it will start to curl !!

I start off by pushing my chipboard heart into my WOW! Ink Pad, making sure I cover it all, then sprinkle WOW! Heather Embossing Powder on and heat set. 
There's two ways you can do the next step, either, whilst the heart is still molten and hot quickly pour another layer of heather on, or wait till it cools and put it into the ink pad again and repeat.
Heather is a Colour Blend powder, check out the colours separating, the more you heat, the more they move !! Next we want to cover it with WOW! Emerald City Embossing Glitter, as this is a trasparent powder, it will take on the colour from beneath. 
You can get some great results playing with the different powder properties, here's a link to our info site, where we list all the powders and their properties… INFO SITE. Sorry, a little diversion there !!
So there's your three layers but now we're going to add three more layers of WOW! Clear Ultra High, this will give it a beautiful enamel effect, this alone is gorgeous, once you're at your last layer, get your stamp ready, I used one of my favourite background stamps WOW! Pop !!! Some people ink up the stamp with the clear ink, but you don't have to on these stamps. When you've melted it all, make sure its molten and then lay the stamp on top, pushing in to it, let it sit for about 30 seconds.
I die cut a stitched rectangle and mounted it onto my card base, then die cut the word 'With Love' using double sided tape mounted onto card stock, peeled the front off and sprinkled it with WOW! Sparkles in the Thistle shade, glued it to the heart and mounted the heart on the card front.
This is just one way with 'Triple Embossing' What will the design team come up with, I can't wait to see their creations !!!
Here's what I used to create this card :-

  1. Hi, congrats to the winner and thanks for the mention of my card. Can you please define triple embossing. Is that just applying three layers of powder, so it's thick? The same colour, or different. Or does dry embossing count as one?? I love the look of that colour blend powder and your heart is stunning. Hugz

    1. Hi, yes, but heating in between each layer, or you could cheat like me and do a double triple embossed effect LOL !!!
      Thanks for the lovely comment xx

  2. One of my favourite techniques! Will be joining in the challenge soon... Congrats to the winners and top 3!
    P.S the blog doesn't work normally under Internet Explorer (my browser of choice). For example the comment box doesn't show so I can't comment under IE and yesterday's videos were shown as black boxes so I couldn't watch them either.

    1. Hi, have you tried on another browser ? I'll have a word with the office but if its a browser issue I'm not sure, leave it with me… In the meantime heres the link to our You Tube Channel..
      Hope that helps. xxx

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…

We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
