Bonding Powder + Foil With Karen Reategui

Hi shiny friends! Today I'm up at the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog sharing this card made with Gina K. Watercolor Flowers Stamp and WOW! Pink Fab Foil.

Let's shine! I started by stamping the flowers onto Kraft cardstock using WOW! Bonding Powder.

Then, I placed a piece of WOW! Pink Fab Foil on top and put it in a laminator. Once it was dried, I removed the foil.

I adhered this Kraft panel to a white card base that was previously stamped using an Impression Obsession Background stamp and Altenew Pink Diamond ink.

Additionally, I cut a thin stripe out of fuchsia cardstock and added it to the background.

I stamped the sentiment onto a white oval die cut and placed it on top of the card using foam tape.

Finally, I added a few jewels to the flowers as a final touch. I hope you like this card and start using more WOW! Fab Foils on your projects. WOW! has a great variety of beautiful colors that you can find at the shop. You can use my discount code WOWDTKR to get 10% off your purchase.

Have a bright and shiny day my beautiful crafty friends!

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…
