Teals, Aquas & Blues...Oh My! | April Challenge + March Winner with Tasha

Hey crafty people!

Welcome to a new month and a new challenge here at WOW! Embossing Powder.
We are so happy and excited to announce the winner of last month's challenge and therefore the May Guest Designer spot, and we will also be having a teensy shake up of the challenge prize. (*Details below.)


As always, I have created a card as inspiration for this month's challenge theme and I have a video for that, which you can catch here.




So we are celebrating all things blue, teal & aqua with this challenge; think colours of the sea!
Our Creative Director over here at WOW is the wonderful Marion Emberson, and it is no secret that she LOVES Teal, so we want you to go all out this month and shower Marion with beautiful, teal, blue & aqua goodness!
(You can check out Marion's socials here.)


Creating A Background..

I used the Layered Hearts stamp set from WOW, a mix of embossing powders and Catherine Pooler Inks to create a random patter on hearts across my background.

Although I stamped it onto an a2 panel, I made sure to stamp some of my hearts off the edge of the panel; this just rounds the design out a bit more and makes it appear as though this is a panel that is cut from a larger piece of patterned paper.




Catherine Pooler inks: Something Borrowed, Suede Shoes, Cummerbund, All That Jazz and Juniper Mist.
Embossing Powders: In The Navy, Glassy Ocean, Halo, Clear and Totally Teal
Stamp Set: Layered Hearts - WOW! Embossing Powder

I created my own glitter cardstock, by pressing my Ultra Slow Drying ink pad into a piece of Neenah 80lb and embossing it with Totally Teal Embossing Glitter.
Then I cut the Large Paper Hugs sentiment die from Time For Tea Designs out of it. To step up this sentiment even more, I added 3 layers of clear embossing powder over the top of each letter; this makes them look like some sort of enamel embellishments.


I added the shadow layer for the die from Vellum; this is my favourite way of making a sentiment stand out against a busy background, without covering up the background completely!

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

VIDEO: Three Ways to Use an Embossing Pen with Jenny Colacicco

Do you have the WOW! Embossing Pen?  Even if you do, do you know what to do with it? Well, if you have been wondering, I can help. I have three different ways to use the embossing pen in today's post and for me it was a game changer.  I've had the pen for a while and just never picked it up except to maybe add a dot of ink where I hadn't fully heat embossed. The techniques I'll show you today (and there's a video!) will make this pen a must have tool in your craft room! My cards also feature the newly released Gemstone Trio embossing glitters (and some other recently released powders now available). I'm going to show you how I created these three cards, all of which feature a different way to use the pen - you can watch the video below or over on the WOW! Embossing You Tube channel (and be sure to hit subscribe while you're over there! Highlighting Dry Embossing For my first card, I used the pen to highlight some areas on a dry embo
