Guest Designer : Amy Tsuruta

Hello!  It's Amy again from Tsuruta Designs.  So thrilled to be sharing a couple projects that combine the goodness of WOW! Embossing Powder and Pretty Pink Posh!

All my stamped images are on watercolor paper so I went with the Primary Ebony Regular Embossing Powder.  It really makes the images pop with the Zig on Zig coloring.  Here's my first project that features Pretty Pink Posh's Happy Mail and Flourishing Fuchsias stamp sets.  I also included their Stitched Pieces die.

LOVE the WOW! Embossing Pad it inks up on the first try for all of the images, super clean and crisp.

Although I managed to heat emboss a bunch of the images for this design, I wanted to also keep more of the white from the center panel visible.

My second card is a bit busier than my first design.  Similar to my card above, all the images have been heat embossed with the Primary Ebony Regular Embossing Powder.  I colored them with watercolor pens and set them aside.

I watercolored the fun yellow stripes on my cardbase and finished it off with black splatters of paint.  I originally was going to heat emboss the images in white but really love the contrast with the Primary Ebony Regular Embossing Powder.  I combined Pretty Pink Posh's Humminbird Thanks and Flourishing Fuchsias stamp sets.  The sentiment is from their Encouraging Greetings set.

With all the different stamped images on this particular design, the heat embossing and foam dimensionals really add so much lovely texture.  The Pretty Pink Posh Lucky Sequin Mix is a fun addition to my shaker card.

A super big Thank You to WOW! Embossing for having me as a Guest Designer this month!  I had so much fun!

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
