Rainbow Ornament Card with Dana

Hello, everyone!

It's Dana from Dana G. Crafts and I'm so excited to be sharing my first card here as a WOW! Design Team member. As you know, our monthly theme is 'rainbow' and I used various techniques for my rainbow card today.

To begin, I pulled out A2 sized bristol paper and ink blended it with rainbow colors of distress oxide inks. I then die cut several circles from black card stock as shown.

I stamped some geometric images from Sparkle & Shine Stamp Set with Embossing Ink and sprinkled Metallic Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder and heat set each of them.

Then, I applied anti-static powder to black card stock and drew some lines using Embossing Pen and ruler. I heat embossed them using same embossing powder with ornament images.

I also heat embossed 'happy everything' sentiment from Studio Katia Birthday Greetings stamp set beside the bottom-left ornament.

Next, I started to make my own embellishments with embossing powders using melting technique. It's my very first time to try this technique and it was so much fun!! For this, I melted Melt-it Powder, Hot Gossip, Coral Beach and Sparkling Snow.

I know most crafters use heat tool or single hot plate for melting embossing powders. But, I was just wondering that my warmer and tealight makes it possible or not, so I tried it.

When I used warmer with two tealights for small ribbon, it took more time than heat tool, but I was so happy that my hands were free during entire process.

So, I used one more tea light and more powders for another ribbon which I used as a photo prop and I think it saved my time to some degree. Oh, I used Pretty Little Bows Silicone Mould for both ribbons.

For mixing powders and creating marbling, I used wooden skewer as shown.

To finish, I mounted embellishments where I wanted them using Ranger Multi Medium Matte (small circle ones) and hot glue gun (ribbon).

I hope you enjoyed this card. Thank you so much for joining me today!

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 a

VIDEO: Three Ways to Use an Embossing Pen with Jenny Colacicco

Do you have the WOW! Embossing Pen?  Even if you do, do you know what to do with it? Well, if you have been wondering, I can help. I have three different ways to use the embossing pen in today's post and for me it was a game changer.  I've had the pen for a while and just never picked it up except to maybe add a dot of ink where I hadn't fully heat embossed. The techniques I'll show you today (and there's a video!) will make this pen a must have tool in your craft room! My cards also feature the newly released Gemstone Trio embossing glitters (and some other recently released powders now available). I'm going to show you how I created these three cards, all of which feature a different way to use the pen - you can watch the video below or over on the WOW!
