Memories of Disney….

Hi Everyone

As I was sat on my sun lounger on holiday I was reflecting on holidays spent with our daughter.  You see this was the first time without her - she preferring the bright lights and thumping sounds of Aya Napa to being with her parents.  So I created this for  WOW HQ this month.
I have chosen to go back in time to 2007 when my family and I went to Disney World.  Our daughter loved (and still does) MINNIE MOUSE even though she is 18 years old now!



I started by cutting out some die cuts from different scrap pieces of card stock and vellum: Marianne Designs, Spellbinders,Sue Wilson, Sizzix and Tattered Lace.I then inked and heat set  some of them up with Versamark and used the following embossing powders: New-Daytona Sands, New-Atlantic Spray, New-Long Island Teal, Bark Ebony, Pepper and Copper Pearl.The 12 x 12 card stock, I firstly sprayed with Dylusion sprays and let it dry. I then took the embossed  die cuts and arranged them on the page. The stamp 'SMILE' is taken f…

Today I have a special post for you. I get to do an introduction of the two stamp sets I designed for WOW! I will share a card and a video where I talk a bit more about the sets and I hope you'll love them as much as I do. AND there is also a giveaway! WOW will give away one each of the two new sets Flights of Fancy and Big Words to two of our readers. All you have to do to have a chance to win is to comment on this post and tell us which one of the sets are your favourite and why. Good luck!
Let me tell you about my card first and then I'll get back to the stamps. It's a really easy card to make. I diecut the background out of smooth white cardstock. I wet a part of the paper and added distress inks so they blended. Dried it really carefully with my heat tool. It's important to let it dry completely because the embossing powder will stick to anything moist. I stamped the High Five and embossed with Calypso Glitter. Then I stamped the feather from Flight of Fancy (or …

Watercolor Happy Birthday

Hi there Wow fans this is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun technique.  I have a ton of art supplies that I really don't know how to use.  Right now watercolor is such a popular trend that I thought I would give it a try.
I found these metallic watercolors for under 5$ at Michaels.  I embossed my Sexi-Hexi stamp with Ebony embossing powders and then I just roughly colored in the spaces.  I wanted to try out a bunch of the colors so I went with a rainbow pattern.


Here is a close up, can you see how it sparkles.  I finished everything off with a bright silk ribbon and a statement.  I hope you have enjoyed my card today.  Give watercolor a try, it's really fun.

Wow  Embossing Powders used: Sexi-Hexi Stamp Black Ebony Embossing Powder WOW! Embossing Powder Shop

Dream: By Trish

Hello! A summery, happy bright project from me today!

I stamped the butterflies onto vellum, then embossed with Bright White Embossing powder. I really love how the white stands out!

The butterflies were put to one side whilst I created the background. This was done by smearing and smudging yellow, green, blue and red paint onto a wooden panel. I also added my favourite detail, splattered dots! This was done by spritzing the whole background with water, then sprinkling a tiny pinch of Ultra High Ebony Black powder over it. The water creates just enough 'stick' so the granules don't get blown away when you point the heat gun at them! The water then, of course, simply dries away whilst you emboss!


Remember though, only spritz water onto your background if you have used some kind of permanent colour... I've used acrylic paint. Water based inks will bleed and run! I used a wooden word as my finishing touch. This was coloured black, then embossed with Ebony Black powder to give …

Video Tutorial: Basic Stamping and Embossing plus FAQs about WOW! Embossing Powder

Hi Everyone! 
We've got Marion Emberson our Brand Ambassador on the blog today sharing a video on how to get the best results with your favourite WOW! Embossing Powders. Be sure to click on the video and subscribe to our Youtube channel and leave a like if you enjoyed the video :)

It states your powders are anti static, but I get bits sticking on my work?

All our powders are double treated for static. This doesn't mean that they are anti-moisture so if you handle your work, oils in your hands will transfer to the Cardstock, thus creating a base for the powder to stick to. Try to handle your cardstock from the sides. We also strongly recommend that you don't decant the powders as our jars are treated in the same way.

When I heat emboss my paper curls, how can I stop this?

This is caused by moisture from the paper and the ink pad. All you have to do is turn it over and heat from the other side. You will find this flattens it out but depending on the thickness of your card you…

WOW! Embossing Powder and Viva Las VegaStamps Blog Hop - DAY 3 COMMENTS CLOSED

WOW! What a great response to these blog hops! We are glad to hear that you guys have been inspired by our design team's makes :) Thank you to everyone who commented on the last post. 
Welcome to Day 3 of our Blog Hop with Viva Las VegaStamps! Today we have Sian and Maya on the blog sharing their cards that they used to create projects with VLVStamps and WOW! Embossing Powder. Maya and Sian's styles are distinctive as they both love their white space which allows designs to shine so beautifully. It is also something that I personally struggle with in my own projects as I am always very tempted to keep adding stuff until all available space is covered! Maya and Sian I am in awe! 
Please note that today is Sian's last day on the blog, we are saying our goodbyes with heavy hearts and we will really miss Sian's creativity on the blog and her sunny disposition in the team. Please join us in wishing her best of luck with future endeavors and keep following her on her own blog

I created a messy painty background, and then layered the fabulous Viva Las Vegas Stamps over the top. I stamped the Bubble Wrap Texture, the Writing Triangles and the Stitching designs using black ink, then stamped the Writing Circles Background using embossing ink and embossed them using Super Fine Opaque Bright White powder. I also added splats to the background using Ebony Black Ultra High powder, and Opaque Bright White Ultra High powder. My 'Happy' word was die cut from black card, then embossed using Ebony Black Super Fine to give the shiny finish. Once I had completed the panel, I p…
