"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 to share with you a great tip for storing your WOW embossing powders for easy identification. This will come in handy because like I said, these powders and addictive. Buy one and before you know it, you'll have the entire collection!

I started by punching small circles from white cardstock for each jar. Next, I embossed each circle (one circle per color).

If you plan to store your embossing powders in these adorable cases that they come in, simply attach the embossed circle to the outside of the case using a glue dot. This way you can tell at a glance which color is located in which case.

I recently reorganized my scrap room and store all of my jars together in a kassett box from Ikea. So, I attached the embossed circles to the tops of the jars. I can't tell you how much this has simplified the embossing process.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Be sure to check back often as our fabulous Design Team members posts beautiful projects on a daily basis!

Until next time,



  1. This is so incredibly cute! And I love your dots for easy view!

  2. Tanisha, I LOVE that fun page! Perfect embellies and design! And what a great idea for storing, I'm always picking up and looking, picking up and looking! That saves time! TFS!

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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
