Sparkling Happy Birthday Card

Hello! Nicole here and I am excited to share this fun card with you today. I have been having so much fun with some embossing glitter powders from WOW, so I decided to create a card using one them.  I recently got a dog die and wanted to create a birthday card for a friend who loves dogs. I decided to add the Black Twinkle embossing  glitter  powder to dress up the dog.  The die-cut piece has skinny legs and a skinny tail so to make sure that embossing powder gets on every part of the cut out piece, I attached it to a white scrap paper using some temporary adhesive. This method comes in really handy when you emboss sentiments or any detailed die-cut piece. After adhering it to the scrap paper, I pressed the Versamark Ink Pad on to the paper piece. Check out this gorgeous glitters! I love the fact that once you heat set the glitter powder, glitters don't really fall out and get everywhere. Less mess the better, in my opinion! I wanted to create a collar f

Then & Now Layout

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today.  When thinking about this months "Time" theme all I could think about is how fast my children are growing.  That is how my Then & Now layout came about. After looking at this video  I knew that the water splatter technique was something that I needed to try, using pastel blue and then some of the glitter blue over the top.  Using the same pastel blue, Melt-It and ultra bright white I created the flower centers.  I used a lovely silver damask vellum from Ruby Rock-It to anchor my layers. Thank you so much for taking the time to look at project today :) Jenifer

Time To Grow

Hello! This months theme is 'Time', and it seems that right now I have been surrounded by people using that word! The end of the school year is upon us, so all the 'time to move on', 'time to leave', 'time to start new adventures' phrases are coming thick and fast! I've chosen on of my favourite phrases: 'Time To Grow', and have made a flower themed journal page.... I've used lots of WOW products, all in the circles of my flower! I used.... (From left to right) Olive , Silver Foil , Fluorescent Blue , Apple Red , and Clear (over text paper) My circles were layered up on top of each other... As you can see, you can 'do things' on top of the melted embossing powder to embellish it further! I have stamped using ink, stamped using paint, scribbled with a black pencil and added dots and stars! The flower is on a painted background, lots of stencilling and printing... A little bit of a scalloped , doodled border...

"Time " - Canvas -

"Time" Canvas Hi, Christine here with a project for this months's theme "Time"   The canvas was first painted with Black Acrylic paint then I inked the Brocade stamp over the top with Clear Versamark ink. I then added Blue Pearl Embossing Powders and set the powders with a Heat gun.  For the next step, I embossed the letters "Time" with WoW Gold Rich powders and added these to the top of the canvas. Next came one of my favourite techniques, I heated some Gold Rich, Copper and Metallic Pink Embossing Powders in my Melt Pot and poured the melted powder into the Flowers and Heart moulds. Once cool I added these flowers to the corner of the canvas. I also embossed the "Call Me" stamp from the WoW "Call Me" range of stamps and added this to the canvas under a picture of a clock. Rafia was wrapped around the canvas too and the embellishments stuck down with silicone glue. I embossed two Die-Cut swirls with Orange Pearl powder a

Time is Precious, Waste it Wisely

Hello and welcome back to WOW Embossing Powders,  Donna here today to share a project that I created.  This months theme is TIME.  It took a while to think what I could create, but once I had that pic in my mind it came together nicely. TIME IS PRECIOUS...WASTE IT WISELY I have had this Tim Holtz clock for a while now and knew I wanted to do something special with it.  I thought it would fit nicely into this months theme of time. There was a lot of prep work for this project.  I covered the entire clock in white distress paint.  Why you ask, to give my surface some tooth.  I knew I wanted to emboss on it and I needed something for the embossing powder to grip to.  Once my paint was dry I covered it in a layer of Blue Topaz (such a stunning colour)  and heat embossed it.  I then got a mask out and in sections I added versa mark ans then vanilla white, again heat embossing. I then spent some time adding more embossing powder for highlights,  I added Calypso t

The gift of time

Hi everyone, Nikki here. Today it's my turn to do the WOW! inspiration post.... this month our theme is TIME, so me to there was only one thing that I wanted to do... a clock.... I picked up a clock at a discount shop a while ago and I wanted to turn it into something a bit more special. So this is what I came up with.......  I used some of the WOW! resist paper instead of a photograph and then inked it match the embossing powders that I had chosen.  To create the leaves in the background I used passion fruit and primary chartreuse . For the edge of the quilled flowers I used primary purple orchid and for the butterflies I used frozen berries , calypso and orange fizz . These are all new colours and I think they are just stunning!!! A must have to your embossing powder collection. Here's a close up to show off some of the yummy sparkle...  As a little extra I wanted to share with you another great way to use your embossing powders... You can use them to creat

Time - An Art Journal Page

Hi! It's Sandie here today with a Journal page I created for this month's theme, which is  Time  The background has been painted with Blush Pink, Vanilla Bean & Periwinkle acrylic paints. I then used the Sexi-Hexi clear stamp with Primary Blue Topaz powder.  I embossed my clocks with the limited edition  Passion Fruit Glitter and adhered them to the page with wet glue. Then I added some metal hands, secured with matching brads.  For extra shading I used gelatos around the clocks and the edges of the page. I also used them to highlight the sentiment. When everything had dried I took the Cracked Leather stamp and stamped it randomly around the page with Archival black ink.  WOW!

Time to create something pretty

I live in Sweden and I don't know where you all are but here it's really hot and very nice weather at the moment. I love the summer, everything is so relaxed and we start to get some lazy habits. I have a real problem getting to the scrap room to create, I just want to lay somewhere with a good book. But when I make myself sit down to create something it comes out in all kinds of unexpected ways, like the boring part of the brain is on vacation and are not paying attention anymore. So, I sat down to create for this months post and all I could think was: It's time to create something petty... And well, that's what I did. I just grabbed a canvas saved for a moment like that and spelled the words out with some left over chipboard letters. I used Gesso to cover the letters and then I just sprayed some random mists in pretty colors over it all. Before it was completely dry I lightly sprinkled some Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder over the whole surface and heate

I don't believe in time...

Hello! As you probably know by now, the theme for this month here at WOW! is 'Time'.  This theme opens up a plethora of possibilities!!  As soon as I started thinking about it, the song 'Time' by Hootie And The Blowfish got stuck in my head and has been there ever since...hence the title of this post  :) Despite the endless possibilities, I could not get the idea of a clock face to budge, so that's what I went with.  And, to me, birthdays are the measure of our lives in time - so I combined this with the clock face idea and this is how it went... To create my clock face, I started by making a mask from printer paper with a circle die then stamped the WOW! De-Vine stamp in Versamark and embossed it using Calypso embossing glitter .  And, it would seem, Calypso is the colour of the month over at the WOW! shop - I love this colour, it covers really well with turquoise goodness and has a wonderful sparkle that my photography skills fail to convey in thi

Time to Call

Hi Everyone This month at WOW HQ is  Time  and my take on it is to use the stamp set  'Call Me'  and WOW Platinum embossing powder as everyone should have time for friends and family to call them at least once per week. I stamped the images onto white card stock and buffed around the edges with blue distress ink.  I then cut the telephone box and telephone in half rounding the corners with a punch.  I used 1 inch squares for the images. I added cord, brads and flowers as embellishments and layered this onto red and black card. Time Time will come, time will go Time shall reap, that time has sown Time comes slowly, time goes fast Time will linger, time outlasts Time sees all, time knows best Time remembers, time never forgets Time will hide, time will reveal Time will open, time will seal Time brings hope, time brings fear Time brings distance, time draws near Time will help, time will hinder Time will shine, time turns t

My epic timeless 2014

Hello my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and this is our All about time month. A lot of things come  to our mind  while  we think about time. It can be  just " I am so late" or " times passed so fast" things; but then it can be anything about a moment in time, good or bad, or just things that happened during some time period.  So after a lot of self " brain storming" I decided to make this altered journal for my memories of year 2014. The year is still " in process", so I just made a cover and then I am going to add some journal pages, Mixed Media or regular scrappy style, not sure about it. But I was pretty much sure about my love to WOW! PRODUCTS and used them a lot over this fancy shabby/Vintage cover. The basic paper products are from Marion Smith line, but then I used tons of embossing powders to change my embellishments to textures and colours that I like. The whole cover was embossed with  Olive Green powder.
