Be Happy - Raluca

Hi everyone and welcome back to our creative WOW space! 
Raluca here and I'm so excited to share with you my new CAS card showcasing a beautiful WOW! DIY embellishment.

I created this card to play along with the "DIY Embellishments" theme for the Wow! Embossing Powder Facebook Fan Group page monthly challenge - ❤ WOW Embossing Powder Fans ❤

First I die cut a panel from watercolor cardstock and I stamped, using Distress Inks, the beautiful stamp included in the Julie Hickey Designs Spring Delights Stamp Set - Floral Sprig. I sprayed it with clean water and let the colors spread. Next I stamped the image again using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink, added WA01 Clear Gloss and heat embossed it. Then I added splatters all over my card.
Next I stamped a sentiment from the new Round & Round (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set and gold embossed it. I also completed the sentiment with the "be" word white embossed on a purple little piece of cardstock.

Then I started working on my embellishment. 
On a WOW! Foil Melt-It Case (10) I mixed WOW! Melt-It PowderWL01 Bright White and the two embossing powders from the WOW! Trio Flirty Fuchsia *Catherine Pooler Exclusive*, heated them very good and poured it into the Pretty Little Bows - Silicone Mould. After I let it cool, I took it out of the mould and glued it to the card.
I mounted the panel on a mint card base and my project was done.

Super easy to create and with such a fabulous result! 
That's all from me today! Have a lovely week!
And thank you so much for stopping by,

  1. Well, I could have sworn I saw this post and commented on it a few days ago and I have a post on my reading list by Ashlee about that time which I haven't seen before which now clicked on takes us here to this post. Anyway, this is a pretty card and I love the black embossed flowers with that sweet red embellishment you made fro a mould and love the pink and blue smooshed background, so bright and pretty Raluca. x

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…

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…
