VIDEO: Using WOW! Changers with Jenny Colacicco

How is everyone doing today?  I decided I'd get out my WOW! Changers this week and have a little play.  Have you managed to get your hands on these yet?    They are so much fun!  I've created two cards today that showcase all three finishes, and there's a video to show you how to use them if you weren't sure how.  You can find my video here:

Be sure to check out the other videos on the WOW! Embossing channel that feature the Changers!  But what are they?  These are a little box set (so cute!) of three additives that you mix with your existing powders to get a whole new look.  They lighten the powder, and then you can choose one of three finishes - Sheen, Glisten or Texture.  The kit comes with little empty powder pots for you to do your mixing too!

My first card features Glisten.  This is a sparkly additive that makes your powders glitter!  The powders I'm using today are from the newly released (February) Parc Floral Trio.  These are opaque mix powders (they have multiple colors blended throughout them).  For this card I decided to mix Glisten with Hydrangea from the Trio.   It's a super pretty of pale red, whites and pale blue.

Be sure to use a metal spoon when mixing (to avoid static cling) and I use Marion's recommendation of 1:1 mixture (1 part additive to 1 part powder).  I recommend mixing up just as much as you think you will need on the card, otherwise you'll need lots of empty pots!  For a background I found two small (about 1/4 tsp x 2) spoons of each worked great. When mixed, pop the lid on and give it a good shake.

I stamped my image (Darkroom Door Butterflies Background) in WOW! Embossing ink and then added my mix over the top, then heat embossed.  Look at that gorgeous shimmer in the close up! I love the look - the pale red and blue really shimmer and sparkle!

I create my card, I kept it clean and simple -  I die cut the background with an Altenew Nesting Frame, then popped it up on foam tape.  I added a layered Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Thankful 2 die cut (cut from pink cardstock and vellum) with foam tape and a sentiment strip from Taylored Expressions heat embossed in WOW! Metallic Silver superfine and a few enamel dots.

For my next card I used Sheen additive with the Azalea.  Azalea is a pretty pale red and white mix.   I mixed it up in the same way, and stamped the Whimsy Stamps Flower Puffs background.  I then heat embossed using my mix.   The Sheen adds a gorgeous pearly almost metalline shine on the powder.  The pearliness is really noticeable in lighter areas such as the upper right of the background, and when you turn it in the light. 

I die cut the background in the same way as before and popped it onto a panel of vellum trimmed to 4" x 5.25" with liquid glue, then added foam tape and adhered to a white notecard. 

For the third additive, I mixed the Texture with the Sunflowder powder from the Trio which is a gorgeous bright yellow and pale yellow mix.   I added three spoons of each this time.   I then die cut the Altenew Simply Said Thank You die three times from white cardstock, one of which I dunked a few times on my WOW! Embossing ink pad, before coating it with the Texture mix and heated it.   When cool, I then repeated.  This additive adds some serious chunks!! So much texture but still with the shine!

I adhered the Thank You die cuts together and popped them onto the background.  I then trimmed out another Taylored Expressions Simple Sentiment Strip heat embossed in WOW! Metallic Rich Pale Gold,  popped on foam strips and added a few enamel dots!

Be sure to check out these Changers from WOW! They will almost triple the number of powders you have!!

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…
