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…

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…
