Welcome Emma ….

Hi Guys,

How lucky are we to have the very lovely and talented Emma Godfrey share her take on Triple Embossing !!!
Enjoy, and don't forget you have one more day to enter the Challenge for this month… http://wowembossingpowder.blogspot.co.uk/2017/10/october-challenge-and-september-winner.html

Don’t go breaking my heart


Hi everyone. Emma here with an idea for cards using the triple embossing technique. 

I stamped the dotty heart stamp (from the Layered Hearts stamp set) three times onto a playing card. (I like the fact that with the plastic coating, playing cards are slightly tougher for this technique). It doesn’t need to be perfect - I just wanted the rough shape. Cut them out and wipe off any ink that hasn’t dried.


Triple emboss each heart using WOW Fluorescent Blue Regular embossing powder. Whilst the top layer is still hot stamp the dotty heart into each one.

Press the stamped hearts onto the WOW embossing ink pad and then apply Ranger Perfect Pearls powder in Bronze with a brush. Buff off any excess.

Apply PVA glue to some of the dots on the hearts and sprinkle them with WOW Sparkles in Celebration. When they’re dry, brush off any excess.


Cut a mat slightly smaller than your card blank, and run it through an embossing folder. Distress the mat by rubbing over lightly with a brown ink pad. Apply PVA glue around each of the mat edges, and dip them into the same WOW Sparkles.

Stamp LOVE (from Mr Wow’s Wonderful Words stamp set) with the brown ink pad on to a piece of spare card. Trim and then stick everything together.


Voila. I hope you like the cards ... I was originally going to use all three hearts on one large card, but I think they work nicely as the focal point on the mini cards instead. This design could easily be transformed into Christmas cards ... what do you think?
Here's the lovely WOW! products Emma used.

  1. These are very pretty triple embossed hearts Marion and love the little sparkles on the hearts and round the card edges, and the pretty background embossing works well on the kraft card. x

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…

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:



STEP ONE

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…

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…
