Die Cut Hearts & Embossing with Jeannie

Hi crafty friends! I’m back today as a guest designer for Wow! Embossing Powder for another post. After my first project using only embossing powders and stampnig for a card, I couldn't help but create another card using only embossing powders. This time, it's strictly a die cut card, no stamping needed.  

I wanted to play with die cut hearts so I used LDRS Creative's Stitched Heart Die. This set comes with three sizes and I used the smallest two. Before die cutting, I swiped my white cardstock with WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad to make my cardstock sticky for the embossing powders. I used three different colors: Glassy OceanBahama and MontserratGlassy Ocean is smooth and pretty where Bahama and Montserrat are both glittery and oh so fun! 

I arranged them diagonally against an A2 black card panel. Once I decided on the placement, I glued it all down. I used the sentiment from LDRS Creative's Open Heart die and glued it directly on the middle heart.

I thought that with just the hearts, it looked a little plain. Again, I swiped my white cardstock with WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and added Glassy Ocean so I could create strips. I also trimmed out a few pieces of white cardstock because Bahama and Montserrat both have white specks in the embossing powder. 

The strips really added interest to the card and really finished it off. This card was a quick and easy card that required no stamping.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!

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…
