I Love Sparkles

Hello crafty friends I hope you're all well. I can't believe we're nearly at the end of February already, where has this year gone?

Here is my inspiration for this month's "Everything  Sparkly " challenge. I enjoyed this project immensely as I got to have a play with the wonderful new Sparkles range.

For the background of this card I stamped the words from the Wall Art stamp set  in black ink. I then used Peachy Keen and Pumpkin Spice Sparkles on other images from the set to create the rest of the background. Sparkles aren't an embossing powder so you need to stamp your chosen image with an Ultra Slow Drying Ink Pad and use bonding powder over the top. Melt the powder then apply the Sparkles on top while still tacky, simple!

After inking over the background with turquoise ink I stamped hearts from the Hearts & Twine stamp set and used Coral Beach Sparkles on top.

Finally I used Santorini Sparkles on the sentiment from the Mr Wow's Wonderful Words stamp set.

I hope you have as much fun as me using these amazing Sparkles!

Good luck with the challenge,

It Will Show You The Way Altered Box

Hi crafty friends!

It's Fran with you today and I hope you are well and feeling creative. My post today features plenty of bling and shine with this cute box / card combo I created using WOW's new Sparkles glitter.

My substrate was just a plain old gift box I'd saved which I painted with chalk paint. I used Peppermint Stick glitter over stenciling details and added a touch of Perissa embossing powder onto the stones which surround the flowers.

Adding pink and a deep purple inks into the glitter gives a tint and a more blended, softer look to the Sparkles.

Open the box to find a micro greeting card inside! The card is decorated with a heart covered in both Peachy Keen and Prom Queen Sparkles glitter . I softened the heart outline with stones and the Perissa embossing powder which was used on the front of the box.


I stamped the sides of the box with the lines and brush strokes stamps from WOW's new release Wall Art set. I think they work really well together, creating an almost basket weave pattern.

See how the glitter lifts everything? Just by added small touches of it here and there makes a big difference to projects!

I hope my project today has got your inspiration and creativity flowing!

White Out Resist Background by Susanne

Hi my dear crafty friends.

Susanne here today. A while ago I watched a video by Marion Emberson on the WOW! YouTube channel and I loved what she did. I've never heard about an embossing resist technique with acrylic paint. But it works perfectly and if you use white paint you'll get a wonderful shabby chic look.

Enjoy the video!

Here are some close-ups and detail information:

I used a heart die from Die-Namites and covered it completely with WOW! Perissa powder. The little black heart is embossed with Black Glint powder. The stamp is from the Layered Hearts stamp set. I used the tiny stamps to add a little bit more interest on my old book paper.

This super sparkly heart is cut from a piece of cardstock where I added double sided tape before cutting. I used Fab Foil Gold scraps and the brand new WOW! Sparkles Celebration on the sticky side.

Thank you for stopping by today!
xx Susanne

Sparkling with clear texture paste

Hello, dear friends!
Have you seen all the gorgeous new products from Wow? Especially I liked the Sparkles -  WOW’s very own Premium Glitter! Super-sparkling stunning mix of different colours and sizes of glitter particles. Our February theme is Sparkle Everything and here is my super-sparkling card.for your inspiration.
For the background I mixed SPRK004 Jade SPARKLES with clear texture paste and applied it through the stencil. With the sprays I added some vintage touch. Also I did some background stamping and embossing  on die-cut circles, using Sparkle & Shine and Hearts & Twine (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Sets with WS148 Emerald City and WS151 Sand Dune embossing glitters.

Hi WOW fans! It's Laurence (Laury55) , and I am here today to share a card with the WOW newly released products. I wanted to create something with a fresh look and soft colors. I placed a stencil on watercolor paper and outlined some of the triangles with a green watercolor pencil. I used a wet brush to dilute the color and let it dry. I inked the Wall Art Stamp set by Marion with blue ink and stamped my background to add contrast to the light green triangles. The word "Hello" is die cut and embossed with Emerald City Embossing powder. Love the sparkling! I added sequins and tulle to add volume and stitched it with my sewing machine to the background.

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a card that I made using the fabulous new colors of WOW Embossing Powder. These are totally gorgeous and combined with the new stamp set Hearts and Twine they look amazing. Take a look at my card:

The base and the layers of my card are whisper white card stock. I stamped the two images that came on the Hearts and Twine WOW Stamp set using the WOW Embossing Pad and the most brilliant colors of this collection.

All the images were stamped with WOW embossing Pad and covered with different colors of embossing powder. For the twine swirls I used the WOW Yum Yum Bubble Gum Embossing Powder, for the circles inside of these WOW Misty Sky and WOW Avocado Embossing Powder. And for the little sprinkles, WOW Golden Flame Embossing Powder. 

Then, with the WOW Embossing Pad I stamped the mini dots and created the right side border with my new favorite color of Embossing Powder, the WOW Rose Gold. I used the same to emboss the sentiment that is a word from the WOW Stamp set Just Saying.

I hope my project inspiring you to use all the new colors of WOW Embossing Powder and combine these with the other collections and the amazing stamp sets. 

I will always love WOW!
