Hi Guys,

For this month, we have challenged you and the design team with the theme "FOIL IT" We would love it if you play along with us :) You can link up your entries using our link below ! The closing date for this challenge is 24th August 2017. and the winner will receive a gift voucher for £15.00/$15.00 to treat yourself to some WOW! goodies via our website. You MUST use Foil in your entry !!

For your chance to win a selection of WOW! Foils and accessories, leave a comment saying why you want to win.... it's as simple as that !!!

Here's my take on the challenge...

I absolutely LOVE the WOW! Fab Foils !!! Yes they work with a toner printer, a laminator, our Bonding Powder but for that quick simple card they work wonderfully with adhesives.

I received the most gorgeous thoughtful gift recently from a lovely young lady called Casey, so I made her a thank you card, I know she loves shiny things, so foil was perfect !!

I started by cutting black card to the finished size I wanted, then a white piece slightly smaller than the black.
Using a hexagon die and a piece of Stix 2 Double Sided Adhesive Sheet I die cut it and kept a few of the solid hexagons and the outline.
I cut a few extra pieces of the outline off to give it a more interesting shape.
This was then adhered to the white card stock
Remove the backing, place the Fab Foil colour side up on the adhesive and rub, lift and repeat, you can keep using your foil until there's no colour left.
With the same die I cut a few scraps of patterned paper and glued these in the design. I also adhered a few of the solid hexagons from the double sided adhesive.
Carefully peel the backing off and again, colour side up, place over the adhesive and rub to transfer the foil.
I stamped the 'Just to Say' sentiment on a piece of white card and cut into a banner, mounted it with foam pads and added a few sequins to add to the shine !!

Thanks for looking.
Hope you have fun with Fab Foil !!

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…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

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…
