Wishing You Joy This Season by Dana

Hello, WOW! friends!

It's Dana and I'm sharing Christmas card today. My first card is HERE and I hope you join with our monthly challenge at Facebook fan group HERE as well.

To begin, I stamped image from The Ton Stamps Holly Branch onto WOW! Superior Smooth White Cardstock using clear embossing pad. I then sprinkled WOW! Metallic Silver Regular Embossing Powder and heat set it.

I colored the branch with Copic markers and cut it out using scissors.

I silver heat embossed a sentiment from same stamp set as well onto a piece of black card stock.

For background, I distressed watercolor paper with distress oxide inks and mounted it onto green cardstock. I then die cut cover panel using Studio Katia Loops Die from white card stock and foam mounted it onto the base. I flicked watercolor paints with water here and there and let it dried using WOW! Heat Tool.

I popped up all elements again using foam tape as shown and finished off this card.

Thank you so much for joining me today. Happy crafting!

  1. The watercoloured holly and berries look great over the circular die cut background Dana, and the silver embossed on black sentiment stands out beautifully and also complements the silver embossed holly too. A super card. x

  2. This card is fabulous!

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…

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…
