Hello Winter!

Hello. my dear crafty friends! My name is Irit  and this is my very first post here, also for a year I was on Wow Embossing Powders USA team, so I am not new to those gorgeous WOW! products at all.
 This month is a month of Ice and Snow  in our blog. Ice and snow for Israeli girl? We hardly see snow once in a lifetime. But as I design  only for out of Israel companies, I do have great winter products to design with and today I am going to show you  my "Hello, Winter" wall deco full of Wow! Embossing Powders stamps and powders.



The basic part of this deco is this 30*30 cm (12*12'') chipboard piece from Australian A2Z Scraplets company. It was a long way to make this board to look like it is now: each part of it was covered with Versamark embossing  ink and heat embossed with a lot of WOW powders.
I used Metallic  Silver Sparkle , Azure, Pastel Blue and Neutral Ultra Shimmer in a mix and most of them were double or triple embossed.
 Then I made this  inner stamped circle: American Crafts light blue cardstock was stamped (on the smooth  side, not over this textured one) with a lot of WOW! stamps. I used Brocade, French Music and  all three backgrounds form Fanky Border Strips set and made them in a kind of a grid , totally randomly, stamping with the same Versamark ink and then heat embossed with  Bright White embossing powder.


After stamping and heat embossing I  cut a circle and embossed it around with Azure  powder.
The Pink Paislee huge chipboard letters were distressed and then heat embossed with Neutral Ultra Shimmer powder again. Finally I added some American Crafts letters  and as those letter are not so sticky after all, I made a made a thin line over them with Glossy Accents (my tip for altered projects using so called  self adhesive letters- looks great and different).


Then I added some button snowflakes and one big grunge board one on the bottom. I decided not to add any more embellishments over the central part as I wanted the stamping be shown and not covered with other products.

Hope you like my altered piece and see you next month with more WOW! inspiration!

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:



STEP ONE

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…

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…
