Embossing glitter stencil backgrounds with Ashlee

Hi everyone, It's Ashlee here and I'm so excited to be guesting with WOW for the month of April....

For my first card I am showing how you can use stencils to create sparkly backgrounds with your embossing glitters. It is super easy to do this technique and it's a great way to be able to use any of your powders and give that WOW factor to your cards!!

For this one I have used the beautiful powder metallic silver embossing glitter on a light grey cardstock with a stencil from Heffy Doodle called stoney maloney. 

- Firstly cut your card base to size and then place a piece of removable table on the under side to use to hold your stencil in place once you place it over your card base.
- You can either use the WOW embossing pad directly over the stencil or use an ink blending tool to pick up the embossing ink and place it over the top of the stencil.

- Remove your stencil and cover in whichever embossing glitter/powder you choose, tap off all the excess and place back into the container

- Last step is to heat set with your WOW dual heat gun!! and there you have a beautiful background!!

Here is a picture of products used to create this card...

Thankyou so much for stopping by the WOW blog today and checking out my card, I really hope you will feel inspired to get your stencils out and use them with your powders!! 

Happy crafting everyone, Ashlee

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…
