Merry & Bright with Heather Mitchell

Please welcome the talented Heather Mitchell as our Guest for the month of October. 

 Hello everyone!

I'm absolutely chuffed to bits to have been asked to be October's Guest Designer for WOW!  I'm besotted with WOW! powders and products and I've been having enormous fun creating some inspiration for you all.

My first make uses the gorgeous Thankful stamp set, which I adore!
I began by stamping the florals over and over onto watercolour card using the WOW! Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and then sprinkled over Metallic Gold Sparkle.  After heat embossing, I painted the flowers with watercolours and once dry cut out.
Using watercolour card once again, I die-cut an aperture and then used Distress Oxide to create a mottled background.  Once fully dry, I wiped the embossing pad along the edges of the card and added the same Metallic Gold Sparkle powder to create a grungy border.  On the aperture, I used the WOW! Embossing Pen as I wanted the same effect but in finer detail.
Having added some of the polka dots from the set, I roughly worked out where I wanted my florals to sit and was then able to heat emboss the leaves using Metalline Kiwi Krush.
To add definition to the flowers, I distressed the edges using red ink and shaped them using a foam mat and a flower ball tool to shape.
The sentiment was heat embossed (using the same Metallic Gold Sparkle powder) onto torn vellum and then tore another strip to layered behind.
With the sentiment in place, the flowers were glued to the card which was then matted onto red card before attaching to the card blank.
So there we have it - my first Guest DT make!  Catch you all again soon for another!

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…
