VIDEO:Friendship Cards | Repeat Stamping with Embossing Glitters with Erica

Hi friends!

It’s Erica on the WOW! Blog with a couple of friendship cards today. There is also a video up on the WOW! YouTube channel.

This month’s theme is Repeat Stamping, and for those of you who know me, know I love doing this!  I have used a stamp set from Mama Elephant called Friend Indeed, and a gorgeous array of glitter powders. Mermaid Tails, Seaglass, Splash and Calypso. Two shades of Calypso actually. One old tub and one new.

With the help of a MISTI or stamping tool, repeat stamping is so easy and fun. Adding embossing powder or glitter to it, makes it extra fabulous! 

On the first one I stamped up the image with the Embossing Pad and then sprinkled the glitter powder on them. In the order of Calypso, Seaglass and Mermaid Tails. I used the heat tool on top of this, instead of heating it from underneath. I thought I had made a big mistake of mixing the Seaglass and Mermaid Tails as the smaller, lighter glitter pieces looked like Seaglass. It turns out that I didn’t but I did not realise this before I added more Seaglass and Calypso to it to make a custom blend. 

On the second I decided to stamp with a coloured ink first, Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio and Mermaid Lagoon, and then use the Embossing Pad on top with the custom blend. This time I did heat it from underneath and it turned out fabulous! 

To finish off the cards I used several of the small stamps from the stamp set, in the same place on both panels thanks to the MISTI again. I used black ink for this to make them pop. With this done, the final part was to trim off the panels a little before adhering them to white card bases.

So, what do you think I should call my custom blend? Leave me a comment here with a suggestion!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you found some inspiration here and will try your own repeat stamping. Don’t forget to upload your creations in the WOW! Facebook fan group. A random winner gets drawn every month with a gift certificate to the shop up for grabs!

Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

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…
