VIDEO | Giftwrapping with WOW! Embossing Powders

Hello Everyone! It's Martina here with you today.

I'd like to share some of my recent gift wrapping ideas with you!

Christmas is around the corner and -in my little world- there can't be enough sparkle and shine for that time of the year. So why not creating your own giftwrapping paper from plain craft packaging paper using the gorgeous WOW! Embossing Powders?

You can watch me creating these papers *here on the WOW! Youtube channel*

Using the WOW! Embossing ink, I have stamped an Alexandra Renke Amaryllis to the craft paper. Then I have poured Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder over my stamping, tapped the excess powder off and melted the powder with the WOW ! Dual Speed Heat Tool.

The parcel is decorated with string, a tag with some Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and a tiny piece of a Alexandra Renke aRt Figurine.

Using an Alexandra Renke Ornamental Star Stencil and a Blender Brush, I have been applying some Embossing Ink to my Craft Paper. When I liked the coverage of stars on the paper, I have poured the Metallic Copper Sparkle powder over the stars and repeated the same steps as I have done before.

To decorate the parcel, I have used some string, a gifttag that has been double-embmossed (with Gitty's Power and Opaque Bright White) and Alexandra Renke Figurine Deers.

To create these frosty looking waves, I have been drawing waves to the craft paper with the Embossing Ink Pad Refill, Conditoner & Freestyle Tool. After my wavy lines have been drawn, I have added White Twinkle Embossing Glitter and set it with the Dual Speed Heat Embossing Tool.

Using this piece of craft paper, I have folded a bag for my little gift. To decorate the bag, I have used a piece of ribbon and some Alexandra Renke Die Cuts that were on my desk from another project.

And last but not least, I have been using my WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Dring Embossing Ink Pad to create messy stripes on the craft paper. It was quite tricky, to cover the whole stripes with the Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder but I absolutely love the effect when it is melted.

To decorate this parcel, I have been using some Alexandra Renke Poinsettia Die cuts that have been heat embossed with Metallic Platinum Sparkle.

I think, a little sparkle and some personal touches on parcels go a long way!

I really hope you got encouraged and inspired to get creative with this years giftwrapping!

Thank you so much for watching!

Have a wonderful day!

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: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
