Emboss Resist Watercolor Hello Card


Hello! Nicole here to share the very last project for the year of 2014 with you all- Where did 2014 go?? I can't believe in just couple of days we are going to be saying "hello" to the year of 2015. As a last project here on WOW! blog, I wanted to shake things up a bit and introduce a very colorful card. We've seen lots of holiday projects during the past couple of month so I thought this would be a nice break for you guys. And, who can say no to a colorful, bright, new card, right? 


I chose a big butterfly stamp set from my stash and decided to use it as the main part of the card. It has lots of details and I thought the Bright White Super Fine Embossing Powder would work perfectly together. It looks really complicated, but oh it is so simple! Check out the video tutorial above to see how this card comes together. 


I love using the Bright White Super Fine Embossing Powder since it catches all and any details of an stamped image. I highly recommend investing in it, if you haven't found the perfect white embossing powder for your crafting needs. 

Watercoloring on a heat embossed paper is a great way to bring out the colors and the detailed lines of an image. I simply used few colors from my Peerless Watercolor Set to create this blended look. Adding a very soft background color also helps the main image to stand out. I kept the sentiment really simple and clean by stamping a "hello" greeting with a Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I hope you've been enjoying all the projects and inspirations we've been sharing with you in 2014. Thank you so much for all of your kind comments and we look forward to be sharing more new projects with you in 2015! Have a Happy New Year!

Hugs,
Nicole

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…
