Guest Post: Sparkly Sentiment Die Cuts with Emily Midgett!


Hi there! Emily Midgett from Sixth Street Sundries here with you today to share a guest post for WOW! Embossing Powder! I have long loved the huge variety of colors, styles, and textures that the WOW! line carries, and one of my favorite ways to use it is to create molten die cut sentiments, and if they're sparkly... well, that's even better! Today's card features some die cuts that I've dipped in Fairy Dust embossing glitter. Let's get started with the details! 


I began by using the WOW Embossing Ink Pad and Fairy Dust embossing powder to create my own glitter paper. I simply put my embossing pad directly to the panel of scrap card stock, covered it with Fairy Dust embossing powder, heated it, then repeated the process to get a really nice thick layer of sparkly powder. I then used the Big Hugs die from My Favorite Things to  die cut a sentiment from this custom glitter paper. 


After I'd created my custom glitter die cut sentiment, I used one of my favorite sets from Concord and 9th to create a colorful, non-traditional floral bouquet with the Grateful For Everything stamp set, Ink on 3 Fadeout ink, and my Copic markers. 


I die cut two more layers of the Hugs die and adhered them together with the custom embossed glitter card stock to create a dimensional die cut sentiment. I also heat embossed a "friend" onto a strip of white card stock. I adhered both pieces onto the colored panel, then added some Sparkling Clear sequins to balance out any white spaces.

Well, that's all for me today! Thank you so much to the folks at WOW! Embossing Powder for having me as their guest this month. I will be back next week to share some more inspiration using these wonderful products!

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
