(Almost) Total Eclipse Of The Heart

Hi everyone, Emma Godfrey here with an extra little project for this month's Heart topic.

I love making art that can be displayed in a frame, and this piece now has pride of place in my bedroom.


I cut out four hearts from some leftover scraps of painted background paper (I never throw anything away). I didn't have any heart dies, so I hand cut my hearts - I quite like the not perfect finish. I heat embossed the second largest heart using the WOW! Tropical stamp and WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale Super Fine embossing powder. I also covered the smallest heart with double sided tape and then covered it with WOW! Sparkles in Jade (see photos further down).


To create a simple background for my paper hearts, I took a sheet of book text and heat embossed hearts from the WOW! Layered Hearts stamp set, using the gold embossing powder from earlier and WOW! Clear Gloss Super Fine embossing powder.


I added a strip of double sided tape across the middle of the book text, and added more Spark…

With Love - video tutorial by Ola

Hi there!

My name is Ola and this is my first post as a member of WOW crafty family.
First of all, I would like to say a big thank you for the invitation to join the team and the opportunity to craft using products I love so much.

For the January challenge ''All about hearts'' I created a clean and simple card using heat- resistant vellum and an embossing blending technique.

Close up photo shown below

For the sentiment I have used Pink and Main ''Love'' Die set which is available at WOW Embossing Powders UK. 
Here is step by step video tutorial on how to make this card. Enjoy!



Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting to all of you! Ola xx

Metalline Himalayan Musk Hearts Card ....Jo Herbert

Hi All .. Jo here bringing to you a nice little sneak peak of a fabulous new colour that will be available to retailers and the WOW online stores in February 2018.


Today's card creation has a variety of elements such as masking, ink blending, pencil shading and background scoring.

My inspiration has come from the WOW's January Blog Challenge.

Even though this almost a one layer card there is so many ways to add texture and faux layers just with some simple techniques.


Apart from embossing powders, glitters and tools I also love the stamp collections that WOW has in their stores. Their array of background stamps are beautiful and have some intricate details that heat emboss really well as well as stamp crisply. Today I have used the J'Adore hearts background stamp which I have used with mask creating this heart on heart image.

I have recorded this card making process on you tube so please visit me over at You Tube and see today's card unfold in front of your eyes.

With all my heart - a card by Riikka

Hello there and sweet day! It's Riikka here today with a heart shaped card. Love is in the air as Valentines Day closes in, but on the other hand, there's always a good day to spread some love! Don't you think that too? 
I have to confess something. Before my two girls I disliked pink. Even as a child I wanted to have the blue versions of everything as in my youth it seemed that everything came in either pink or blue. I can even remember having an argument with my mom about a jacket she was buying to me as she suggested this pale pink, like a cotton candy color and I insisted of having the jeans blue one. So yes, pink has never been my favorite. Even when my girls were small, they were rather clothed in blue than pink - and I heard quite a few times what lovely little boy I had. But when my older one turned three, everything changed. She insisted on having everything in pink and in glitter. So I just had to learn to live with it. And slowly I started first to endure pink …

My First Blog Post And A Textured Thank You.

Oh my goodness this is my first blog post as a member of the WOW team and I have to say I'm absolutely thrilled to be here. It's very nerve-wracking to be delivering my first official post but at the same time I'm so very excited.
Let me introduce myself, I'm Jaine and I'm hoping to help inspire you with my own way of creating and my own style.
One thing I absolutely love in my work is texture. The inspiration for the background to this card  came when I was looking for a gift in a local flower shop and spotted a gorgeous embossed metal box with copper foiling over the embossing. The texture and shiny copper was gorgeous. It was quite distressed and not totally perfect which I also found beautiful. I held the image in my mind until I could try out something similar at home.



For the background to my card base I used texture paste and a stencil to create the raised design. Once that was dry I painted it over with two colours of acrylic paint blending them into one …
