About A Girl Mini & a Coat Hanger

Hi everyone! Amy Prior here today to share a gorgeous Mini Album that I have created with a tonne of WOW Embossing Powders and all for my darling new baby niece... This cute canvas album has been in my stash for quite a while and was perfect for this gift. I have primed the Canvas with Gesso and then using a Crafters Workshop Template I have inked with some Embossing Ink and Sprinkled over the top with Clear Regular WOW Embossing Powder . After the Embossing Powder was heated, the pattern was a great resist for some spritzes of Cherub Pink Glimmer Mist.  Checkout these super cute closeup details... Gotta love the Build A Butterfly Stamp set from WOW Embossing Powder ! Here I have embossed the stamped image with Opaque Bright White and then I have used some Ink with a Watercolor brush. A few pearls added the finishing touch to this gorgeous butterfly embellishment. Now onto the pages. There is 12 pages in total in this album and I have created each one uniquely. All pages have been crea

A Manly Pair!

Hi everyone! Tania here to share two cards that I made to give to a deserving guy! The monthly  challenge  on our Wow! blog was to use the delicious  Earthtones  and making manly projects. I showed Mr T, and he approved :) Don't forget there's still a day to take part in the  monthly challenge ! Thanks for stopping by :)


BUT..... I followed all the rules this month...Swoon !!! I've only gone and done a card (it's what time permitted) but I kept to the masculine theme and the Earthtone colours, it wasn't hard as I was using one of my all time favourite colours -  Earthtone Olive ... I LOVE this colour, I also thought it went rather nice with the  Earthtone Blueberry  and  Earthtone paprika ...all food associated - I'll put that down to coincidence LOL !! I started off by cutting out a couple of stars, inked up an embossing folder with Versamark, laid the stars inside it and run it through the Cuttlebug, the Versamark transferred to the debossed part of the stars, apply Blueberry and heat set, I did get a little extra on there, but as this is for a man, the "distressed" look works On the fold of the card I inked up one of the  Funky Border Stamps  and embossed it with Olive, added a scrap piece of card stock in a complimentary colour, then punched a scalloped card st

A Favorite Technique

Happy Memorial Day everyone!!! I hope that everyone will take a moment to remember the brave men and women who have served and still are to protect us. It's because of them that we are able to spend today with our family and friends safe and secure! Now.....on to business! One of my favorite ways to use the WOW powders is with embossing pens!!! It's so versatile and there is a color for everything!!! I thought I would do a card for today, so I found this vintage image. I just used embossing pens and colored in the drum. I also took a white button and embossed it red!! Just a couple of simple techniques, but I find myself doing it a lot lately!!! Here is a close-up. I used the Cable Car Red from the By The Bay collection for the button. And then I used the regular Gold pale and Opaque bright white regular on the drum. The jute trim and baker's twine is from Really Reasonable Ribbon . I also used my trusty Zig markers for the faux stitching!!! The paper is all Moxxie's H

Hiya all, it's Sarah here and I've created a Father's Day card using the Wow Earthtone powders that I wanted to share with you all.   Here are brief instructions on how to make (I used a blank pre-folded Square Card with a linen effect but and blank white card would work well with these colours): STEP ONE Using clear ink, stamp the squares pattern from the Funky Border Stamp Set and sprinkle over Wow Blueberry Embossing Powder and set using a heat gun.
