"Texture Me" ATC's with Jessica Larios

Hello, again my beautiful crafty friends! I hope you all are doing well on this fine day. As you know I am a guest mixed media designer for WOW! Embossing Powder this month!! Yaaaass! I couldn't be more thrilled, seriously! This has been such an awesome experience. I've had a lot of fun experimenting with these powders, I can barely contain it! Today we will be playing around with multiple mediums to catch their results when using embossing powders. I must say, this was quite fun, you will begin to learn what kind of texture medium you want with different projects. Each medium provides a totally different look and finished product.

Let's have some fun and get the heat going!

1. Let's begin by using our different pastes through our chosen stencil
*One paste for each card*
WOW! Isn't that just a glorious sight to feast your eyes!?!

2. To give our backgrounds some color and life, we will add our embossing powders
I used a different powder for each card background Gold Pearl, Weathered Gold, Primary Bark
3. Heat set the embossing powders while the texture is still wet
*Hint: When the texture is still wet, the raised effect from the heat embossing is amazing
4. Let's emboss our dragonfly chipboard pieces using Pastel Yellow
5. Emboss your leaves flourishes next with some of that delicious Black Glint
6. To coincide with the black flourishes, distress the card edges using black ink
7. Begin layering all your elements starting with the flourishes, the large flowers, then the small ones
8. Gluing only the body of the half dragonflies, add them to the tops of their flowers
9. As your finishing touch, add some colored pebbles

Here are some close-ups for you to enjoy!

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
