All That Glitters | Zsoka Marko

Hey crafty friends,

Zsoka here with you with my first blog post on the WOW! Embossing Powder Design Team! This month it is all about glitter! Like every girl I love glitter too! My boyfriend however, not so much haha! I didn't even notice how it covered the whole kitchen floor (my craft space is in the kitchen!). Oh well!

For my cards today I used the lovely Posie Fill-In stamps and dies bundle from Concord and 9th. I cut a piece of watercolor card stock and placed it in my stamping platform. I inked up my background stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamped the image. I repeated this once more to get a good coverage.


I poured WOW Bright White Regular embossing powder on it and embossed it.



I then added a light purple watercolor wash so the beautiful white grid is more visible.


It looks a bit splotchy and distressed at this point...The big areas where there's no grid are where the posies will be! Apropos posies...I stamped a bunch of them and embossed them with two different kinds of embossing glitters: Persian Indigo and Mulberry Mist. I did the same with some leaves. Aren't these colors AH-MAZING?! I'm so in love!


I die cut them all using the coordinating dies, and I also die cut some smaller leaves from lavender, white and navy card stocks. Boy this took ages ha! But I think it was so worth the effort.


I trimmed down my card fronts to 4.25"x5.5" and adhered them on the same size top folding card bases.


Next up the fun part! Assembly! I glued down everything, then trimmed off any excess.


I embossed 2 sentiments with Bright White Regular embossing powder and added these two, using foam adhesive.


To finish up the cards I added some white Nuvo drops to the center of my flowers.



I love all the texture and dimension and those glitters! Just WOW! :) What do you guys think?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

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…

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…

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…
