Scrapbooking with a WOW Factor!

Hi everyone! Amy Prior here today to share with you all some fabulous recent layouts that I have created using WOW Embossing Powders and Stamp Sets . These fabulous products have such an amazing array of uses in Scrapbooking and I hope my layouts below will show you new ways of using your Embossing Powders in Scrapbooking Layouts. The first layout I have to share today is of some sky high photos I recently took on my plane trip across the beautiful Australian Country side. For this first layout, I have used the Songbird Collection from Prima Marketing which I have teamed up with some fabulous Lace, Twine & Cheesecloth.  This embossed effect on the background was created using the Crafters Workshop Template Tile Texture 12x12 and WOW Embossing Powder White Opaque. These gorgeous Chipboard birds from A2Z Scraplets got a coat of subtle Crackle Paint followed by some random ink splattering. To top off these beauties, I have added subtle bits of White Opaque WOW Embossing Powder .

Tricia and The Powder Pixies are back!

Hi there, it's Tricia and the Powder Pixies! We are back with an amazing sampling of project to help get your creative juices flowing. To begin with, here is a wonderful layout created by Iris Uy using WOW ultra high gold and platinum embossing powders. See how she added embossed circles and gears to play up and emphasize the masculine feel of her layout? Jenifer Cowles' project this month was a lovely layout featuring the: "Call Me" and the "It's a bird" stamp sets and Earthtone and Pepper embossing powders. She created her own patterned paper look  by using a background stamp behind her photo? Design team member Jamie Cripps created a  fantastic 3 dimensional chandelier using Black Glint Embossing Glitter on a die cut Chandelier by Samantha Walker for Silhouette America. Below she has even been kind enough to share a tutorial with us as well! Take a look at the detailed instructions below for an inside look to her creative process. Designer Tanisha Lo

A little bit of Vintage...

I'm going to get a reputation as a rebel on this blog, you see, this month is all about Vintage and Nature and using the foils... Well.......I didn't have the foils when I started this card, didn't fancy Nature, but really wanted to do Vintage...So 1 out of 3 isn't bad. Start off with a folded piece of card stock to the finished size of your card, then make a layer slightly small than your card. I've stamped flourishes in B right White Powder , but, before I embossed, I "distressed" the powder by removing bits with a paintbrush, this gives a more Vintage feel to the card. As with 99% of my cards, I have to add ribbon, I just love it, I can't help it, it's one of my weaknesses. Whilst teaching for WOW at the Hobby Craft Show in Birmingham, a question I got asked a lot is "can you emboss onto ribbon"? and the answer is YES !!! Just do tests on the ribbon you want to use and keep the heat gun moving, so as not to burn it. I've used Se


Hello Wow fans!!! Benedicte here: today, I'd like to show you this simple technique that I love to create very original background. I use an embossing powder of any color I like - here Olive - on the entire stamp board - here the "Is it a bird"  stamps. Then you just have to use it along with a few embellishments and to place your photo. And that's it, you've created a simple layout in a few minutes that matches the colors of your photos! Talk to you soon :)

Discovering foils

Hello, Doris here from . I have had a wonderful time trying out the foils and making them work for me. On this flower journal I used the bonding powder with WOW stamps to embellish the background of the front cover. The letters are created from carton. I stuck double sided tape on it before die cutting the letters. Then foiled the letters by dabbing parts of the sticky surface on the white foil and then the gold foil.   Then I started thinking about what else these foils might stick to. I had heard somebody say that they stick to laser printed images. My laser printer is dead so I could not test that, but I tried them on acrylic paints and that works astonishingly well. Dry acrylic paint and a bit of free form hard rubbing gives you an instant distressed look. I particular love using the  white foil which has a matte finish  for this - a great distressing tool! And it is permanent. See the dots on that back page? The are the negative of the dots on the fr

Steampunk Art Canvas Flies With the help of Powder

I can't hide it even if I tried, my love for Steampunk art is pretty strong. The combination of vintage and industrial together is inspirational for me. Maybe it is the contrast or perhaps the dreamy nature of it, but Steampunk is pretty darn cool. Hi Everyone, Erika Taylor here today to share with you a Canvas I created using So of my favorite Wow Embossing Powders . The Gold Rich and Copper Embossing powders are perfect to distress gears with and I love mixing them together to create a really unique look. I also used the Wow Clear Gloss Embossing powder on the butterfly and drizzled a little more of the Cooper powder on top. Love this butterfly!!! The final project is filled with glimmer and whimsy and I really am a fan of how it turned out. The gears are perfect thanks to Wow Embossing Powders . Thank you so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my Steampunk inspired Canvas using my favorite Wow Embossing Powders . Until next time Toodles Erika Taylor
