Re-Cap of Time To Be WOW-ed with Erica

Hi guys! 

It’s Erica back on the blog today, no actual YouTube video for this post. This is a re-cap of what my glittery partner in crime Daniel and I were up to on the last Time To Be WOW’ed live YouTube. If you missed the actual show, or miss any of the upcoming ones, you can catch them on replay on the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel. 

Last Saturday we decided to focus on making our own glitter and metallic card stock. It’s such a fun and versatile technique! We had both ink blended some panels before the show, and then we heat embossed them with various colours for gorgeous results. I did some Rose Gold card stock, Daniel made some Rich Gold, we both heat embossed Clear Gloss on ink blended panels for shiny coloured card stock, and of course we both used Halo. We LOVE Halo, both of us and it’s so awesome. 

One of the panels I had already ink blended in preparation was done with Kitch Flamingo, Picked Raspberry and Black Soot. You might think that’s never going to work but holy, cannoli, does it work! 
The colour gradient is so dramatic, and with that Halo on top it just goes off the charts amazing. 

On this panel I used a big HI diecut, which I layered up several times to create dimension. All that sparkly texture just wasn’t enough!

This die is from The Stamp Market, and I used another die, Friend, which I layered up as well. On this I heat embossed two layers of Bright White Opaque embossing powder to make it nice and shiny, like puffy stickers. 

This whole shebang was then adhered to a card base, this is a massive card, by the way! It’s 4.25”x8.5”!! It’s going to need a specially made envelope before I send this off to the recipient, which just so happens to be one of the viewers of the YouTube live! Daniel and I have decided that we will send off one of the cards we make from the show to one of the people tuning in to the live show, so if you want to be in with a chance to get a card, make sure you subscribe to the WOW! Embossing YouTube channel and turn on the notifications so you never miss a show! 

With that, I’m all done for today, but hopefully we will see you at the next live! 
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

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
