Hi All!! So glad you stopped by today to visit the WOW! blog.

Today I am going to share with you a card I made that can be given really to just about anyone special in your life that you love. The color of the background is totally up to you and can easily be changed depending on if you wanted to give this to a male or female. For this card I used Bubble Gum Embossing Powder from the Suzy West Candy Counter Collection, and Opaque Bright White and Gold Rich Embossing Powders from the WOW! Collection. I also used the Suzy West "Gratitude" Stamp Set to make the hearts.

So I started out by using a piece of bubble wrap that I inked up with embossing ink and then pressed onto my white cardstock. I then sprinkled it with the Bubble Gum Embossing Powder, tapped off the excess, and then heated it up.

Next I stamped out four sets of hearts from the Gratitude Stamp Set on black cardstock, and colored them by making two Opaque Bright White and two Gold Rich. I then cut out the hearts and attached them to pieces of wire I cut to give them stems.

I then took some gold ribbon and tied around the wire and added some rub-on letters that spell LOVE. I used pop-dots on the backs of the hearts to give the card a little depth. I then layered the white cardstock on some black cardstock and your all done.

Supper easy and now you have a great card to give to someone special.

Hope you enjoyed today's card and be sure to come back tomorrow and see what we have to share with you!!

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…

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW!
