WOW! powders and background stamps with Ashlee

Hey my WOW! embossing friends...

It's Ashlee here with you today and I have a set of cards to share using a couple of techniques with WOW! powders and background stamps!!

This set of cards shows two different ways of adding WOW! powders to background stamps...

For this first card I stamped the Catherine Pooler Desert diamond background stamp with WOW! slow dry embossing ink and then using the two powders Primary Blue Topaz and Primary Fuchsia Fusion I added stripes of colour at a time, tipping off the excess after each line of colour was added....

When you heat set it it gives you some pretty mixes of both colours in between!!

For the second card I stamped the same Catherine Pooler Desert diamond background using WOW! slow dry embossing ink and using Primary Fuchsia Fusion I added on patches of this colour powder before flipping my card base to tip off the excess...

Then using the Primary Blue Topaz I covered the rest of the background panel!!

I just love the result that it gives when mixing more than one colour powder....
I added some embossed sentiments to both cards by using WOW! Opaque bright white on black cardstock...

Below is a photo with the powders I used to create this set of cards, you might like to try these WOW! colours out too...

I hope you enjoy these cards and feel inspired to try out these techniques...

Don't forget you can come and join us in the monthly challenge at the WOW! Facebook fans group too for a chance to win some dollars for the WOW! store...
Our theme this month is Repeat patterns which is perfect for these techniques I've shown you here today!!

Happy embossing everyone, Hugs Ashlee.

  1. Two great backgrounds using the blue and fuchsia embossing powders, so bright and pretty Ashlee, and such a strong look using the white and fuchsia embossing powder over the black card for the topper and sentiments. Two super cards! x

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…
