Create with flock - two easy and simple cards!

Hello, it's Verity with another video and blog post as a Creative team member for WOW! I recently got some of the WOW! Flock and wanted to try it out. I was drawn to the Lemon Yellow Flock and thought, why not create using the Pantone colours of the year: yellow and grey! As it is an unusual colour combo for me, I though it would look quite good with a geometric pattern and thought the Triangle Cover Plate die from Catherine Pooler Designs was perfect for this! The flock adds such a fun texture to your cards, but does not add any bulk - perfecting for posting. So let's get started!

Create with flock Video Tutorial:


Check out the video over on the WOW! YouTube Channel here.

Create with flock written Tutorial:


Start off by adding Altenew Double-sided adhesive sheet to both sides of a white card panel. Next, run this through your die-cutting machine with the Catherine Pooler Triangle Cover Plate die. 


Remove the front sheet of the adhesive backing sheet, and cover with Lemon Yellow flock - I would advised placing this over a scrap piece of paper to catch the excess flock. Next, use your fingers to push the flock into the adhesive.

Wipe of the excess flock and funnel back into your pot. Next, gently heat the flock to ensure it stays put. Remove the other side of the backing sheet on the die-cut and add this to a Gina K Soft Stone card panel.


To finish this card off, add a white di-cut Deco Thanks from Catherine Pooler designs, inlaying the white letters back into the outline and then add black letters on top from another die-cut. Lastly, add a few Primary Ebony Nuvo Drops to embellish the cards.

When I finished, I had a lot of little adhesive triangles left from the negative spaces of the die-cut. I used these to create another geometric background.


Add a selection of the triangles onto a soft stone card panel in a diagonal motion across the card panel. Remove the backing sheet and cover with the Lemon Yellow flock, once more gently heat setting to secure it. 


Add just the black outline die-cut of the Deco Thanks die to the bottom of the card - this just pops against the yellow and grey colour combo!


To add a little more interest, use the Primary Ebony Nuvo Drops to the card, scattering these around the triangles.

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!

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
