Glam Heat Embossing with Jenny

Hi Everyone, Jenny here, and today I have a card for you that features neutral embossing powders and shimmer to create a glamorous embellished card with no sentiment :o

There's a video showing you the process to create this card which you can check out over on the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel here:

To create my card, I first added WOW! Embossing Clear Ultra Slow Drying ink all over a panel of black cardstock and then heat embossed it in WOW! White Pearl embossing powder.  This gives a lovely pearlescent sheen to the cardstock, almost silver if you tilt it in the light.

I then diecut the PinkFresh Studio GeoFloral coverplate die four times from 110lb cardstock. I adhered three of them together with spray adhesive.  For the fourth one, I inked it up with embossing ink and then heat embossed with WOW! Neutral Ultra Shimmer for a subtle sparkle before then adhering it over the top. I adhered the entire piece with liquid adhesive (sticks better to embossing) to the black / pearl panel and adhered it all to a white card base.

To embellish the card, I added Iridescent Bubbles by Studio Katia on to the centre of the florals in the coverplate.  Then rather than adding a sentiment on the front (I added one inside) I added a die cut frame - I used the Altenew Mid Century Frame die cut from brushed silver cardstock, then added it to the front with liquid glue.

I hope this gives you some inspiration on how you can glam up your cards using embossing powder - there are lots of other WOW! powders that are also super glam but I just love the White Pearl for that understated glamour.

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…
