One Stamp, two ways ~ A Little Card Magic

Hello and welcome to WOW EMBOSSING BLOG.  This months theme is One stamp, two ways.  I have created a special card to give as a gift.   The stamp set I have used is Vintage wallpaper,  it would be one of my favourite WOW Stamps and can be used for so much.  I love using it as a background.
Vintage Wallpaper - Clear Stamp Set

I stamped a piece of white card stock with my stamp and then added white embossing powder.  This created a white on white effect that I could use as a resist.  I got some colour sprays and strayed my paper over the embossed area.  While the spray was still wet I got a wet wipe and swiped over the embossed area to take of any of the excess spray.

I used a second piece of card stock and again embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper stamp,  this time I used a contrasting colour, cut my paper to size to fit my die and cut out some pine cone swirls which makes stunning wee roses.

I cut some leaves to go with my roses.

I made the roses and then sprayed with a matching colour of the embossing powder.  I love these little roses.  To finish them off I inked the edges.  I added the roses and leaves along with other embellishments to the base card stock.

Thanks for popping on over to see what we have been up to this month.  Enjoy the rest of your day.  Happy Scrappin  xox Donna

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…
