Guest Designer Amy Tsuruta



Hi, it's Amy again from Tsuruta Designs!  I decided to share a project that uses some basic embossing colors.  What are your go-to colors?  Mine are white + black.  Here's a bit of my before prep work:


I picked out some images that have fine details to really show how wonderful the WOW Embossing Powders capture the details.


For those that follow me might know that I'm a coffee-a-holic.  Did you know that owls were one of my first loves?  I use to collect all things owls so when I saw these cute owl images, I couldn't resist picking up the whole collection.  Their eyes are so expressive, aren't they?


One of my go-to sentiment techniques is to heat emboss them on black cardstock with white embossing powder.   The Opaque Bright White by WOW is perfect.

Here's how I was inspired by those cute coffee loving owls:


The Primary Ebony Embossing Powder really makes those guys pop!  See how the sentiment looks on the black cardstock?  I used a cross stitched circle die to cut the sentiment and adhered it with foam dimensionals.


There you have it, a simple heat embossed card!  I think that the images really show you how WOW Embossing products add that special touch to a project, don't you?


I hope that you have a super spectacular 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…
