HELLO gold and silver with Ashlee

Hey everyone....

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a couple cards to share with you today using pops of gold and silver giving you some inspiration for our monthly theme!!

I created these card by starting with a coloured card base and adding some ink around the edges getting lighter towards the centre....

For this pink version I used Catherine Pooler party dress for the ink colour on the pink cardstock and then Flirty fuchsia for the ink colour on the light purple!!

It was then time to die cut the hello with a bouquet die from Pinkfresh studio and heat emboss it with WOW! Mettalic gold sparkle powder....

I just love this gold powder it's super beautiful!!

Using the same colour card as I used in the purple version I die cut the Hello with a bouquet die to get the hello letters and add them inside the die with some foam tape for added dimension....

Onto the second card I die cut the hello with a bouquet die in the same pink cardstock and added that to the card base...

For this one instead of heat embossing the flower part I heat embossed the Hello with WOW! Metallic silver sparkles....

It's hard to capture the true beauty of the silver one in the photo but its another beautiful powder for sure!!

Of course both cards I finished off with a touch of sequins because I love me some bling!!

I really hope you enjoy both of these cards, I always find it fun to create a set of cards that are the same but different... 

You should totally give it a try and don't forget to come and join us in our monthly challenge "Gold and Silver" over in the WOW! embossing fans Facebook group...

Happy embossing everyone, Hugz Ashlee

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…
