The Powder Puff girls are back!

Hi there, it's Gina

First up is an amazing card set by Jennifer Roach. I love the bright colors she used on these, so eyecatching!

Let's go dancing canvas by DT member Birgit Koopsen

I used a dress doll shape from Basically Bare and covered the top part and
the bottom part with Versamark (I did not color the cardboard shape) and
embossed it with WOW! Clear gloss ultra high. I sprinkled tiny little glass
beads in the heated embossing powder while it was still hot and fluid. Then
I panted the skirt with acrylic paint and stamped on it with Versamark using
the WOW! Vintage wallpaper stamp. I embossed it with WOW! Earthtone Honey
regular. The stars behind the dress form where made using Punchanella and
Versamark and then also embossed with WOW! Earthtone Honey regular.

Next, we have a layout by Katarina Damm-Blomberg. I love Katarina's style and how she always leaves an elegant amount of white space on her layouts.

Life is in the little things card by DT member Gini Williams Cagle

Wow Embossing Powders - Suzy West Collection - Gummy Bear Green
Wow Embossing Powders - Suzy West Collection - California Sunshine
Wow Flowers Clear Stamp
DCWV Patterned Paper - Lemon Flower Stack
Prima Flowers and Lace
Distress Ink - Mustard Seed

The Flowers Background was stamped with Versamark and embossed with the Gummy Bear Green powder onto white cardstock. The whole image was re-inked using the Mustard Seed Distress Ink, and covered with the California Sunshine powder. Layering the two powders not only gave depth to the colors but added extra dimension.

Next, we have a fun Gothic art piece by Jan Hennings. Jan always amazes us with amazing altered items!

Brocade Stamp Set 4 (WOW), Metallic Copper Embossing Powder (WOW), Gothic Arches (Coffee Break Design), Black Acrylic Paint, Pattern Paper (Paper Studio), Berry Red Cardstock (Worldwin), Alpha’s (Paper Studio), Gems (Prima and making memories), Frame (Hobby Lobby)

And last is a layout that I created. I tried to step out of my comfort zone and play with a more elegant look. I did not use any stamps on this project, instead I used the WOW! embossing pen to trace the edges of my banners and flowers before dipping them in embossing powders.

I also used embossing powder to create my title.

WOW! embossing powders - gold rich pale, metalline green, pastel peach, pastel blue

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…

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…

We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
