Lovely Layout with Guest Designer Amanda Baldwin

Hi there, crafty friends!

Amanda here (aka @happy_arty_days) and I am so super dee duper excited to be this month's creative guest for WOW Embossing Powder! 

For those of you who don't know me, I am a super creative, photography loving, visual artist! 

love working with color, pattern, & floral designs, as well as getting my fingers inky! I have an abundance of energy and usually have 4 or 5 projects on the go at one time! I only drink coffee on days ending in 'y' and sunshine, rainbows, & unicorns are my jam! Outfit Of The Day always includes distressed denim, and when I'm not creating in the studio, you'll find me at the beach with my family & miniature doxie pup!  

Now, onto the good stuff! 
For today's post I wanted to showcase how easy it is to incorporate glitter embossing into your scrapbook layouts! 
Here's what I'm talkin' 'bout....

"Lovely"

Sigh! So.much.pretty!!!!
Did I mention that Florida Sunset Glitter  is my new FAVE powder?!! 
Like seriously, how amazing is that sparkle?!
LOVEEEEEE!
Let's take a closer look....
Lovely, indeed!
Simple, beautiful & super easy to recreate!
Here's how....
Take your WOW! Embossing Pen & use it to draw (or stencil color ) a butterfly onto clear vellum. 

Sprinkle generously with WOW! Embossing Glitter: Florida Sunset WS95R(O).

Use your WOW! Embossing Heat Tool to heat set the powder. 
Just look at that gold!!!
Repeat process until 5 Florida Sunset butterflies are created. 
Fussy cut each butterfly. 
Ahh-may-zing! Told you that this glitter was something else!!! 
Absolutely MAGICAL!
Paint a watercolor heart onto 12 x 12" white cardstock. 
Once dry, draw in a few more 'heart lines' with the WOW! Embossing Pen. 
This will add  both interest to the layout & really highlight the heart shape. 
Sprinkle & heat set with the fabulous Florida Sunset Glitter Embossing Powder!
Such an effective result!
To complete the layout, embellish the heart with the fussy cut Florida Sunset butterflies, some of your favorite scrapbook supplies (I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Happiness collection), photo & title! 
Voila! 
Super simple, but oh so beautiful scrapbooking with WOW! Glitter Embossing Powder!

Here's a couple of pretty close ups for you.....
Such gorgeously rich colors & intense sparkle!
WOW, indeed!!!!
And there you have it! 
WOW! Embossing Glitter is just errrrrything to me right now! 
I hope I have inspired you to use these awesome powders on your next creative project (or even scrapbook layouts) - 
Trust me, you'll be SO happy with the result!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
I'll be back later in the month with more creative inspiration,

til then,

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…

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…

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…
