WOW! Embossing Powder and UmWow Blog Hop: DAY 2 COMMENTS CLOSED

Hello Lovely People!

Welcome to Day 2 of our blog hop with UmWow Studio!  UmWowStudio is a family owned business out of Las Vegas, NV. They specialise in laser cut chipboard embellishments and masks for the paper crafting and mixed media community. Today we have Patti Hamil and Jennifer Deal with a scrapbook layout and a Project Life page on the blog using WOW! and UmWow products:

Patti Hamil:

Hello everyone! For my project I made a layout with a photo from my nephew's wedding this May. I used lots of UmWow chippies and WOW powders. I also used an UmWow stencil on the background.

I used two colors of lavendar on the swirls, and added floral elements in lavendar and white.

I used the diamond stencil with lavendar ink in different areas of my background. I used the blue powder on the little chippie bird and added a tiny pearl for the eye!

I used three colors of green powder on the greenery chippies! I love the shimmer of the glitter! And the chippies are so pretty!

I added a tag with the journaling and some twine with a few pearls for the finishing touch.

Here you can see that I also used the diamond stencil and ink on a lavendar strip of paper as an element. I also added a small amount of lace trim.

Metallic Lilac Ultra High powder WD02UH

I had a great time with the UmWow products! Wow powders work so well with them.

My son recently graduated from high school and I wanted to capture some of the fun party we hosted in his honor for my Project Life album.  The party theme followed his school colors of black and gold. 

To some contrast with Wow embossing powders, I used Black Glint, Black Twinkle, and Platinum. I also used Coconut Ice on a couple of pieces to show some texture in a similar design but not the additional color.

Here is the whole page with the celebration pieces from UmWow.

The top #party piece is embossed with Coconut Ice followed by Black Twinkle on #thisday and Black Glint on #cake. It is so great how the letters still show through the embossing powder.


I can't wait to color more UmWow pieces for cards too!

Thank you for stopping by!

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…

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…
