Embossing with Stencils Love You Card

Hi everyone! Carisa here today with my first post as part of the 2020 Wow! Embossing Creative Team! I am so excited to be part of this amazing team and represent this awesome company. 
For my first project, I created a card and I wanted to make a card for our January Love / Valentines's Day / Wedding Anniversaries theme. To create the background I used a stencil and pressssed through the stencil with the Wow! Embossing Clear Ultra Slow drying Ink Pad. Once the paper is well saturated, I removed the stencil and add Wow! Clear Matt Dull embossing powder. 
Now, heat set the powder using the dual speed heat gun. Once the powder begins to turn clear, you know it has melted. Using Clear Matt Dull embossing powder essentially creates a resist so the hearts will remain white when the watercolor is added to the paper to create a background. Once the watercolor is dry, stamp your sentiment and die-cut to create a focal point for the card. 
In order to add more interest and texture to the card base, rather than using pattern paper or additional layers, use the Wow! Embossing Pad directly to the cardstock in a random motion to create an organic shape that doesn't quite go all the way to the edge. Sprinkle your embossing powder in Vintage Amethyst to the cardstock and shake off the excess. Again heat set using the dual speed heat gun. To create more dimension for the focal panel, use dimensional adhesive. A few clear, holographic sequins finish up the card!

I hope you enjoyed today's card and check out the blog each day for more amazing inspiraiton. If you make a card using this technique, be sure to tag us with #wowembossingpowder so we can check your creations out!

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
