Earthtone Sampler Canvas by: Sesil Cratin

Sesil here to share a project I made for CHA.  If you are at CHA make sure to stop by the WOW Embossing Powder Booth #2700 and see the amazing creations made with WOW Embossing Powders! I wanted to create a sampler of the wonderful colors the Earthtone collection has to offer. I created my background by adhering down text paper to the canvas. Then I used coaster tiles from Technique Tuesday and used the "Floral background" stamp for the main frame. and used the script from "Call Me" stamp collection for the additional tile on some of the frames.  I added little roses to the centers of some of the open frames and just added a ribbon to the tiles frames.

{love}message in a bottle

Hello, this is Doris from Cheap Psychology - my turn to do a DT post on Valentines ideas for men. I wanted something to encapsulate a lot of little messages to him, something non-cute that we could keep for the future and would I be happy to display. The messages are all rolled up like paper beads. So this is how the idea panned out. It is quite simple really! Roll your bottle in embossing ink and shake on your embossing powder. Start heating the bottle up slowly on the lower setting of your head gun and work in sections. I used a the end of a wooden spoon wrapped in some cloth and stuck it in the bottle neck. This way my fingers were out of the way and I could turn the bottle to where I needed it. Work in sections and do not worry if you missed a bit. When the bottle is warm from your heat gun, you can add more embossing powder and it will stick. When the bottle was covered, I heated up sections again and used some clear embossing powder and drips of water. This gives an aged effe

12 WOW Powders in One Mini!

Hi everyone! Iris here with my first blog post for WOW embossing powders. I'm so happy to be designing for WOW because the powders are really top of the line quality with gorgeous stunning colors! I wanted to share with you all a "revamped" project I made with WOW. I had a mini that needed an "edge" to it so I took out my WOW powders to do just that. Now I consider it "done" and I also have a reference of how all my 12 powders look like when melted. Sierra Sunshine on the tag, Bodacious Blue on the flower, Polka Dot Whirly Pop on the blue flower. Sour Lemon and California Sunshine on the yellow edge. with some Sierra Sunshine too. Berryliciious and Presidio Purple Layers of bay Area and Cotton Candy on the blue edge. This was fun to do. made a thick layer so when you heat and melt the top layer kind cracks and melts through to the darker lower layer. A kinda distressed shabby look. Bubble Gum on the Pink Edge... Mixed Tea Garden and Gummy Bear. Texture

Lovebirds for Valentine's Day

Hi there, it's Sarah here!  It's now time for me to inspire you with a male themed card for Valentine's Day. My thoughts were drawn to something fairly plain and simple with not too many ribbons or glittery things. I then decided on this lovely lovebird stamp and decided to create something with a sense of movement to it! Here's how to make it… STEP 1: Using Wow Embossing Stampset1 - Is It A Bird Stamp the lovebird onto white card using a clear ink pad and sprinkle Primary Ebony Wow Embossing Powder over the area that you have stamped. Tap off the excess powder then heat the card from below using a heat gun. You can see when the embossing powder has set as it turns glossy. STEP 2: A neat trick for creating a mirror image of a stamp is to use a lightbox (or a window) to trace the positive stamp image (trace the design on the reverse to get the mirrored image). I traced the imag

Hi Friend! by Jamie Cripps

Hi everyone!   Jamie here with my first ever WOW DT blog post!  Today I am sharing with you a card that I created mostly using the Flowers background stamp!  I inked my Flowers background stamp  with my  VersaMark stamp pad  and stamped a large area on a light blue cardstock.  I covered the area in the Suzy West Berrylicious WOW Embossing Powder and heat set it.  Once it was dry, I punched three scalloped circles and trimmed out the mat shown on the card below!  With the mat, I reinked my stamp and stamped over the image again, offsetting the stamp a little to have a shadow effect, and then I covered the ink with the  Clear Gloss Ultra High WOW Embossing Powder.  This powder gives it a wet, shiny look and really brings out the texture of my cardstock!   I then spiral cut the scalloped circles and rolled them to form flowers.  I just adore the way the flowers look with the flower pattern on them!

(Gentle)manly card and a quick mask tutorial

Hi, its Amy here with my first individual post for the WOW design team. Its my turn to post my manly card so here it is... WOW powders used: Metallic Silver Ultra High (wings) Apple Red (Hearts) Primary Ebony Ultra High (torn edges and question mark) Primary Ebony Super Fine (figure and text) Stamps: Indigo Blu (main image) Various clear stamps I have had in my collection for so long I have no idea what make they are - sorry! I made the background on white card by putting my hand into a plastic bag and scrunching it onto a Weathered Wood distress ink pad before dabbing it onto the paper. I then stamped and embossed the main image in ebony, 3 different sized hearts in apple red and the 'be mine' text in ebony. The 'will you be my valentine' caption was created using a dymo labeller. I triple embossed the question mark (from a grungeboard alphabet set) in ebony ultra high. The crown and wings were die cut from black card using the Tim Holtz Heart Wings die. I

Candy Counter Collection makes me SMILE!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend awaiting the fabulous CHA releases! I know I am on the edge of my seat here in Sunny Australia waiting and wishing I was there in person to see all the yummy goodies. Today I wanted to share with you all a quick and easy quilting technique I have used on a layout using WOW Stamps and WOW Emboss Powders. This was really was quite easy to create and with a square punch would be even easier (I realised I should have used my square punch AFTER cutting all the squares out LOL). Firstly you will need to grab some spare white cardstock and pick the colours you would like to use for your bakground. I have used colours from the Suzy West Candy Counter Collection including Cotton Candy, Gummi Bear Green & Bubblegum. Next up you need to grab your background stamp (I have used WOW Brocade Background stamp) and stamp your versamark or embossing adhesive onto your white cardstock doing one at a time. Sprinkle your powder generously over t

Triple Embossed Masculine Valentines Card

Hi all, Christine Saunders here.  It's my turn today for the Masculine themed Valentine's Day Card.  I love  embossing and like to experiment with my powders to see if I can alter some of my craft stash to make it match my theme and make it more adaptable too. For this card I found some metal embellishments which I embossed with Copper powder to alter the colour. I also Triple Embossed a Die Cut Heart  and stamped into the powders with the "Call Me" stamps. Once it had cooled down for approx 10 minutes I "cracked" it by bending it to give a crackled effect.  The sentiment was embossed with Clear Embossing Powder to add a little dimension. I also added a Vellum flower and embossed the edges with  Satin Pearl Gold Powder. The powders I used were:  Copper Ultra Fine                                                   Copper Regular                                                    Gold Satin Pearl Regular                                  

"Stamping" and Storing

It's Friday baby!!! Hey there everyone, Tanisha Long here with my very first WOW post! I have had so much fun working with these embossing powders and I have to admit, they're quite addictive!! I found this sketch on the Sketchy Thursdays blog and used it along with some products from Creative Imaginations, Bella Blvd, and WOW's CHA booth neighbors, Basically Bare here on this layout featuring my adorable boys. To add a little texture to this chipboard gear, I added WOW embossing powder in high gloss silver. I used my finger to brush some of the embossing powder off before heat embossing for more of a distressed look. Before adhering the gear to my layout, I used it as a stamp. I inked the back using embossing ink and then stamped in various places on my layout. I heat embossed as I normally would after stamping an image. Here are a couple of close-ups of the "stamped" image. This high gloss is so thick and shiny-- I just love it! Before I go, I wanted
