Why I Love WOW's Primary Powders

Please welcome this beautiful lady in joining us this month for March as our Guest Designer.

Hi! I'm Carly Tee and I’m thrilled to be sharing some of my favorite WOW projects this month! I love crafting, cookies and chocolate-covered gummy bears! I'm married to pretty much the best guy ever, who brings me cookies and supports all my crazy crafting. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest outside of Seattle with our pup Ellie.

WOW's entire embossing powder collection is beyond fantastic but I find myself reaching for the primary colors again & again!

Hi! It's Carly Tee and I'm thrilled to be guesting for WOW! today! Let's talk about the yummy primary powders. I love these powders for 3 reasons...

1. The colors are AWESOME! I like to keep them in their original WOW! containers because they have been treated to remove static and I found decanting them really amps up back up! And I make a little note on the jars of the properties like T for transparent of O for opaque.

2. They are soooo glossy! I love that the amazing shine can really elevate super simple cards (like the ones I made today), into something special!

3. They are transparent so you can create some fun, custom colored effects! For example, the card on the left is Clear Gloss powder over Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral ink on kraft cardstock. And it's very pretty BUT check out the card on the right, its Marshmallow powder instead of clear. It creates a unique & fabulous warm, pinky coral! Swoon!!!

A little more about these cards...

  • The floral stamp is Friendly Bunch from The Stamp Market.
  • The purple card is stamped in Distress Oxide Wilted Violet and the coral card is stamped in Distress Oxide Abandoned Coral. Both are embossed with Primary Marshmallow.
  • The purple card has a little messy watercolor with Distress Oxide Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry and Lucky Clover.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous 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:


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…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
