Multi-Colour Embossing - Thanks Sweet Friend ❤️

Good Morning Lovely People!

Thank you for stopping by the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog and I am filling in today's spot with my take on this month's challenge of "Multi-Colour Embossing." I needed to make a card to send to a friend so I gathered my supplies and got to work!

So to start off, I cut my cardstock to create a 5.5" x 5.5" card base and cut a 5" cardstock panel to decorate. I try not to touch my card stock too much so that I don't get any sticky fingerprints on there! This will give me a cleaner heat embossed image:  

So I inked my Go Figure stamp with my cleanest WOW Embossing Pad ...

And realised that my cardstock panel was bigger than my stamp! So, I stamped the top part first:

And then I re-inked my stamp and stamped where the design ended. I love this stamp so much and find myself reaching for it for all kinds of projects. Once you have heat embossed your image, you won't be able to tell where the second stamped image began!

I then chose two embossing powders: Primary Blue Tang and Colour Blend Oceanic:

I sprinkled Colour Blend Oceanic randomly in some spots and tapped off the excess and put it back in the jar:

And then I covered the whole panel with Primary Blue Tang:

 I tapped off the excess and put it back in the jar and then heat set the whole panel:

I felt like I needed something extra, so I use Distress Inks (Barn Door and Walnut Stain) to blend on to the background. The embossed design will "resist " the ink and remain the same colour! You can wipe the panel with a clean tissue to get rid of the excess ink off the embossed surface. 

I die-cut the word "Thanks" (Lil' Inker Designs) with white cardstock and then stamped "Sweet Friend" from the WOW Just Saying Stampset with black ink:

I cut the Sweet Friend sentiment to make a tiny banner (my favourite look!). Then I assembled my card, gluing the sentiment down and adding dimensional foam adhesive behind the little banner and behind the panel and added it all to my card base:

I am so pleased with how it turned out and I hope that you got a small peek into how I put my cards together and what I do when I have an "oops" moment, heehee! 

Take care and have a wonderful day,

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…
