    1. We love seeing your entries, Isha!

    2. Thanks Tania. Just a question, Do we have to use clear gloss ultra high powder?? Is it clear detail powder. I dont have this one. I have some colored WOW powder thou. Looking forward to read your reply. Thanks again

    3. Hi Isha - Ultra High powder is our largest granule size, similar to UTEE. Detail powder is probably closest to our superfine grade powder (smallest granule size). Of course we'd love you to be using our Clear Gloss Ultra High, but to take part in the challenge you only need use heat embossing somewhere on your project and be a subscriber to the blog (which you are). Hope this helps, Neil.

  2. Einen schönen Abend zusammen,
    es ist nicht so einfach eine New Year Party Karte zu gestalten. Danke für diese Challenge, und schaut was ich daraus gemacht habe. Ein Sylvester Feuerwerk.
    Liebe Grüße Carmen

  3. Congratulations to Elaine (No.5 - ellapu) who has been chosen as this month's winner!

    The design team loved the project, and many commented on the amount of work that had clearly gone into it.

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…

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…
