All about Sparkles!

Hi everyone
Back with another card today, using WOW! Embossing Glitter Powders and Oh do they sparkle!

So this is the card I have to share with you today.....Hope you like it! 

It's using Marion's Secret Garden and Just Saying stamp sets with Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter Powder - because it is translucent it will take on whatever colour is underneath, giving endless results and colours!

I used Distress Oxide ink pads for the rainbow of colours.  Stamped the image, using a stamping platform, with the ink pads and then heated it to dry completely.

I then wiped the design with my anti-static bag and re-innked the stamp again with my WOW! Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, sprinkled over the Clear Sparkle embossing powder, tipped the excess off and heated with my heat tool.  And WOW! so pretty, so sparkly!

For the panel I mounted onto my Catherine Pooler Love is in the air postage die, I swiped my embossing ink pad over a piece of white card stock and then added the lines of colours using the Distress Oxide ink pads. Again sprinkled with Clear Sparkle embossing powder.

I made another card using just the purple, blue and green ink pads. I added a different sentiment to my card, white embossed onto black card stock.

Up close to see all that sparkle.....

Look at that sparkle!!!

Hope you've enjoyed my inspiration today, don't forget to check back for more amazing inspiration from WOW!'s brilliant Design Team!

Have a great day


  1. How glittery and pretty Julie using the beautiful floral stamp for the background and the stripes of colour on top and the added sparkle gives that extra interest, and love both the colour combinations you have used. x

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…
