WOW Spring Has Arrived!

Hello crafty friends, I hope you're all well and are enjoying a little bit of Spring weather! It's a bit cold and grey here on the Isle of Wight but that hasn't stopped me feeling inspired to make my Spring inspiration card. I started by stamping several twine circles from the Hearts and Twine stamp on scrap card, cutting out and attaching down the left hand side of a piece of white card to create masked areas. I then used the Hearts and Twine and Wall Art Stamps in the background and used Avocado and Opaque Bright White Embossing Powders. I then spritzed the card with water and applied Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks with a scrunched up baby wipe leaving some areas white then left to dry. Once dry I then peeled off the masks,  stamped in the white gaps and used British Summer Time Embossing Powder. I used the same on the sentiment and on the stems which  I created using an embossing pen. I finally added some extra colour and spar

Spring Sparkles card

Hello everyone! It's Fran with you today, sharing  a quick and simple Spring card filled with bright fresh colours and WOW! Sparkles glitter. I started off by applying soft gel medium to the edges of the card which I then covered with Pumpkin Spice Sparkles glitter to create a blingy border frame and to add some definition. I've kept the back ground of the card relatively simple with a layer of gesso spread over patterned to give a white washed look and then stamped with the honeycomb stamp from the Heart & Twine set. Some gesso and glitter makes a big difference to paper flowers! To embellish I've used a selection of flowers, feather and resin embellishment which I created with WOW Melt-it powder, which I made by mixing 1tbsp tablespoon of Melt-It powder with 1tsp of Avocado embossing powder in a foil tin and then melting the powders together. Once melted I poured the liquid into WOW's feather silicone mould to create a resin embellishment. To

Art Journal Page with Bling by Susanne

Hi there! It's Susanne today and I'm sharing an Art Journal step by step tutorial today. I start by colouring my primed page (gesso) with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Blue Green Light. I'm using a baby wipe to apply the paints. While the paint is still wet, I make some marks with a pencil. I use a piece of scap paper and apply Hansa Yellow Medium. I'm pressing the tag onto my page immediately. The result are some grungy green areas. I repeat this step with Quinacridone Burnt Orange. I use a black Faber-Castell Oil Pastel to draw a frame arround my page. I also add some ochre tones with an Oil Pastel. Now it's time for some BLING! The new WOW! Sparkles are awesome giltters. I used DecoArt Media Gel Medium to add Santorini Glitter in some areas. I also used a black acrylic fineliner to make some more marks. I add some texture with the script from the new stamp set "Wall Art". I finish my page by adding my focal

Spring mixed media card

Hello, dear friends! Victoria is on the blog today with some inspiration for our monthly challenge "Spring" . Is your spring warm and sunny? We, in Ukraine, have an early spring and warm weather this year and blooming flowers will fill the city soon! So my spring card is very bright and shiny! Iэму made the background using texture paste, stencil, sprays. Also I did some heat embossing with stamps  Hearts & Twine  and Wall Art   sets with  WL14R Colour Blend - Yum Yum Bubblegum  and  WL19R Colour Blend - Oasis . For embellishing the card I heat embossed few chipboard pieces with  WL11R Colour Blend - Iris ,  WL12R Colour Blend - Misty Sky ,  WL14R Colour Blend - Yum Yum Bubblegum ,  WL19R Colour Blend - Oasis ,  WS145 Fairy Tale  powders. WS145 Fairy Tale  is one of my new favs, it is warm gold with holographic glitter and looks amazing! I am addicted to the new Sparkles glitter, so I used  SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES,  SPRK005 Santorini SPARKLES ,  SPRK010 Pro


  Hello everybody, this is Laurence ( laury55 ) today to show you my project for this month's "Spring" challenge. Spring is usually the time when I start again making projects for my garden and I wanted to feature flowers on my journal page. I first stamped the flower from the WOW Hey little Flower set and repeated stamping with the same flower on my background. I added green watercolor outside the stamped flowers, added more water and let the color run a little bit on my background. I added some die cut as embellishments and heat embossed the letters with WOW Golden Flame.   The tag is also heat embossed but with WOW Vanilla White this time. Finally I stamped lines from the Wall Art Stamp set and added WOW Oasis on top. I hope you will be inspired by this month's theme and join us. You can share your "Spring" project here . Have fun!  Material: Wow embossing pad WOW heat tool WOW Vanilla White WOW Oasis WOW Golden Flame WOW
