VIDEO| Three ways to add texture and shine

Hej and Welcome!

It's Martina here with you today, showing how I have created these three tags with texture and shine!

There is also a Video on the WOW! Youtube Channel: *just klick here to watch it*


For my first tag I have been doing the following:

Applying Texture Paste (I have been using "Schmincke Leichtstrukturpaste") through the stencil.

Pouring "Splash Embossing Glitter" over the freshly applied, still wet Texture Paste.

Making sure that everything is completely dry.

Slowly melting the Embossing Powder on top of the Texture Paste on the lower speed of the Heat Tool.

This gives you a nice layer of Embossing Powder on top of the raised texture!


For my second tag I have been following these steps:

Applying "Tacky when Dry" Medium throug the stencil.

Setting the tag aside to dry really well (the Medium gets clear when it is dry!).

Cutting a small piece of the "Ice Blue FabFoil"

Placing the FabFoil on the dry medium and stick the Foil to the Medium with the pressure of a brayer or finger.

Peeling off the Foil reveals the whole magic of this technique!

For my third Tag I have been doing following steps:

Using a blender brush to apply the WOW!Embossing Ink through the stencil.

Pouring "Bonding Powder" over the wet ink.

Cutting a piece of "Teal FabFoil".

Melting the Bonding Powder with the Dual Speed Heat Tool and pressing the FabFoil into the still warm Bonding Powder.

This can be repeated to create more coverage of the FabFoil on the Parts with Bonding Powder.

 To finish the Tags, I have been using some Alexandra Renke Flower dies, which are coloured with Distress Oxides or Earth Sparkles.

The "Thank you" die is a Cathy Zielske for Simon Says Stamp die which I have been cutting from Cardstock. Some of the Die Cuts are still in plain white, some are coloured with the Distress Oxides and Earth Sparkles.

The stamped sentiments (and the gorgeous Stencils!) are from A Pocket Full of Happiness. I have stamped them onto vellum and heat embossed them with Opaque Bright White.

That's it for today!

I really hope you like these tags and feel inspired to get creative!

Have a nice Day, see you next time!

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
