VIDEO: Clean And Simple Christmas Card with Erica

Hi guys!

It’s Erica back on the WOW! Blog and YouTube channel today with a Christmas card. This is the theme of the month of September in the WOW! Embossing Facebook group, and with Christmas coming up fast, it’s time to start working on those cards! 

I decided to go CAS for my card, and let Santa take centre stage. In order to satisfy my need and love for texture and layers, I have used Puff Powder to create a snowy background. It’s white, but still adds a ton of texture and interest to the card! 

To start with, I coloured my Santa with Copic markers and cut him out using the coordinating diecut. These are from Picket Fence Studios, as is the Copic friendly ink I stamped it up with. 

For my background I used a snowfall stencil, with the Embossing pad as well as the Embossing Pen, directly onto the card base. This is sprinkled heavily with Puff Powder, before tapping off the excess gently. I wanted to keep as much of the powder on the card as possible for maximum texture! 

With the heat tool on speed no2, I melted the powder and watched the magic happen. This is insanely cool!! Once that was cool to the touch, I stamped up a sentiment in the bottom right corner. Which I kept free of the heat embossing just for this purpose. I finished off the card with a Merry Christmas stamped on a strip of white card stock, which was then adhered to the card and the excess trimmed off. 

That’s my card for today, I hope you enjoyed it and if you want to see the Puff Powder melting in action, hop on over to the WOW! YouTube channel and watch the video I made for this post. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting from Erica

  1. I love this traditional Santa Ericka and the falling snow using the Puffy Stuff has lots of dimension. A fun seasonal card! 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…
