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…

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…
