Guest Post: Sparkly Sentiment Die Cuts with Emily Midgett!


Hi there! Emily Midgett from Sixth Street Sundries here with you today to share a guest post for WOW! Embossing Powder! I have long loved the huge variety of colors, styles, and textures that the WOW! line carries, and one of my favorite ways to use it is to create molten die cut sentiments, and if they're sparkly... well, that's even better! Today's card features some die cuts that I've dipped in Fairy Dust embossing glitter. Let's get started with the details! 


I began by using the WOW Embossing Ink Pad and Fairy Dust embossing powder to create my own glitter paper. I simply put my embossing pad directly to the panel of scrap card stock, covered it with Fairy Dust embossing powder, heated it, then repeated the process to get a really nice thick layer of sparkly powder. I then used the Big Hugs die from My Favorite Things to  die cut a sentiment from this custom glitter paper. 


After I'd created my custom glitter die cut sentiment, I used one of my favorite sets from Concord and 9th to create a colorful, non-traditional floral bouquet with the Grateful For Everything stamp set, Ink on 3 Fadeout ink, and my Copic markers. 


I die cut two more layers of the Hugs die and adhered them together with the custom embossed glitter card stock to create a dimensional die cut sentiment. I also heat embossed a "friend" onto a strip of white card stock. I adhered both pieces onto the colored panel, then added some Sparkling Clear sequins to balance out any white spaces.

Well, that's all for me today! Thank you so much to the folks at WOW! Embossing Powder for having me as their guest this month. I will be back next week to share some more inspiration using these wonderful products!

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…

We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….

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…
