Thank you

To create this card I used one of my favourite sets of stamps - Gratitude  [writes Nikki Smith]. I just love the simple clean images that can be used for so many things. This is the card I made, I used the white puff powder . I adore puff powders - they remind me of being a child and getting to create puff paint t-shirts! I love the way the puff powders give a softer edging to your stamped image. Here are a few close ups for you - look at how puffy the powder goes..... just like magic! We would love to see the wonderful things that you are creating - make sure you leave us a comment or link so that we can pop on over to your blog and visit you.

No Tricks, Just treats on this page!

Hello There!   Today we have four girls from the Wow Glitter Girls team to show you some treats!     No tricks on this page, except for some fun new ones you could try on your own projects!   Today we have a little of everything, so lets take a peek at what is here!   First off, we have Jenifer Cowles. The inspiration for this layout was the beautiful shimmery Bodacious Blue embossing powder.  It happened to match her daughter’s shirt so she used it as the theme for her layout. "I used the Bodacious Blue, Neutral Ultra Shimmer and Opaque Bright white embossing powders. The Stamps I used were the Funky Border Strips and the Make a Wish stamp." We love how interesting it is too stamp on the feather, and  love the dandelion image from the Make a Wish set!  It goes together great!     Now, Look at this beauty that Jen Matott has created!   WOWSERS!!!   Looks as though Jen did a few different things to create this stunning effect.     "I used Helmar's Gemstone Glue with

Keep Calm... with Jen Matott

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it is a cause that is near and dear to me. My mother-in-law and aunt are both breast cancer survivors of 10+ years!  I recently lost a classmate that was the same age as me to breast cancer.  Even though I had not talked to her in many years, it hit home how awful this disease is and devastating it is to families, friends, and colleagues.  We need to raise money to help fight cancer!  I bet each of you know someone who as battled, is battling or lost the battle to breast cancer!  So, as a tribute to those individuals, I made a plaque to remind us all to keep calm & journey on!  It's a journey to carry on, fight or just give support to those that are facing a challenge like this. I used some of the WOW stamps from the "Simply Amazing" set.  This is the cameo on the ribbon.  I stamped the silhouette on a piece of patterned paper with Faber-Castell's Stamper's Big Brush Pen and then stamped the frame with VersaMark and

WOW! I See Little Witches In My Future!

 I think I may pass on little witches in my future :) LOL!   Jan here and I did have lots of fun making this glass ball.  I used a clear glass Christmas ornament and tipped it upside down.  You can buy these ornaments at many craft supply stores.  I started with a Victorian Pillar Base and painted it black then used versa mark ink pad and rubbed some ink on and heat embossed using WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Ultra High Embossing Powder. I covered the battery operated tea light with some Gaffer Tape and then used a bit of Shabby Orange seam binding around the center. The little witch is adhered to Hambly Screen Prints "Birds".  I cut the overlay and rolled the overlay and image around a paint brush and then released it into the ball.  I used Coluzzle and made sure I left a generous tab at the bottom so it would stand up in the ball.    Easy peasy!  Hope you will try your own Glass Ball!  Add some pearls, metal charms and vintage gloves and you're all set to go. up close Base

A new take on the bunting theme?!

 Hello, It's Sarah here. I have created a card this month for this month's Wow 'Thank You' theme. I started by taking the triple heart stamp from the Wow Gratitude Stamp Set and stamped a few times onto heat resistant acetate. Sprinkled with Wow Brass Embossing Powder and carefully heated. I cut these out (leaving a slight border) and then added a punched hole to the top. I threaded these acetate embellishments onto a strip of navy grosgrain ribbon. I stamped and embossed 'thank you' in the top left of the square card and stamped and embossed a strip of the hearts in the centre of the bottom of the card. I used Wow Earthtone Blueberry Embossing Powder to compliment the brass colour. The colours worked perfectly together for a thank you card for a male. Here is the finished effect. I hope that you like it. Shopping List: Wow Gratitude Stamp Set Wow Brass Embossing Powder Wow Earthtone Blueberry Embossing Powder

A Splash of Colour

Hello all.  I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy.  With the weather here in New Zealand at the moment and the changing seasons not really knowing what they are up to, we are all full of coughs and colds.   Longing for warmer days and trips to the beach.  On the up side  I get to spend a few extra hours in my craft room creating  :-)  Enough chat! want to see what I have been up to.  If you follow me at all you will know I am a bit of a Ink Junkie!  I have discovered Dylusions Spray......   mixed with WOW embossing powders..... H E A V E N. Today I am going to show you what you do with all that extra spray that gets left behind with the help of Embossing powder and Embossing pen..... The photo above is a project I was working on, well to be totally truthful I was just playing.  I loved the color combo and liked all the elements  together   I started to clean up and noticed I had some ink left on my mask and thought that I probably could get a print from it if I turned it ove

Notelet and Pen Set

Hi , Christine here again for this month's blog post. Ive created a "Thank you" Notelet pad and pen set which can be hung on a wall or board and used over and over again as inside the cover is a tear-off post-it note. To make this project:   Using a  piece of Mount Board 11cm x 22cm embossed the whole board with Pearlescent Gold Pearl powder . Stamp the  "Flowers" Stamp over the top and emboss with Earth Tone Paprika powders.  Punch two holes in the top for the ribbon. For the Post it note holder :   Draw round a post-it note pad onto gold cardstock - double the length and a further 4cm . Dry emboss 2 lines 0.25 from the centre - this will form the top spine when your post-it note is inside. Emboss with the "Flower" background stamp but this time in Primary Lagoon Blue.  When folded, stick the post-it note to the inside back section of the holder making sure the top is level with spine. Once the post-it note is enclosed you should have a 2cm o
