Drops with melt it....!!

Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you all today to share a something fun I made to use as embellishments for cards using WOW! embossing powder and melt it powder!!

To start off I will explain how I created these cards and then get to the embellishments..

For my base I used some watercolour cardstock which I sprinkled on some Catherine Pooler colour bursts and sprayed with water... 

This technique created a fun base to then use a beautiful CP background called climbing flowers over the top which I heat embossed with WOW! clear gloss powder!!

Once that was all heat embossed I used CP midnight ink to go over the whole piece...

The gloss powder resists the ink but I gave it a wipe over with a bit of paper towel and a baby wipe to remove some of the colour that was sitting on top. 

It's so fun to see the end result once all the layers are done!!

For the embellishments I wanted to create my own little clear enamel type drops so to do this I popped some melt it powder and primary blue topaz powder into a tin and melted it all together with my WOW! dual heat gun....

Once all melted I started tipping tiny little drops onto my nonstick surface...

They don't take long to set at all but once they have you just pick them off your surface and you have lots of assorted sizes of drops to use on your projects....

I added quite a few of them to the main kind die cut sentiment on these cards....

This is so much fun to do with the powders, I hope you will try it out and make lots of your own enamel drops in all the colours!!

Happy crafting everyone, Hugs 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: 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! Embossing You Tube channel (and be sure to hit subscribe while you're over there! Highlighting Dry Embossing For my first card, I used the pen to highlight some areas on a dry embo
