Christmas Tag by Jamie Cripps

Good Afternoon!  Jamie here with you today with a quick Christmas Tag!

I stamped my background cardstock with the French Music Stamp Set with Ice Spruce Distress ink and then blended in Spun Sugar.  I tore the edge and then dipped it in Bundled Sage Distress ink then stamped the tree from the Deck the Hall Stamp set with black ink. 
Once I had the background set, I used the WOW embossing pen  to color the white areas of the star.

I covered the star with Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing  Powder and poured the unused powder back into the container.

Then I used a heat gun to set the powder.

The star now has an amazing sparkle!

A fun background technique with embossing powders and adhesive dots

Hello and a warm welcome from the Netherlands! Today I want to share with you a fun idea to create awesome backgrounds using Embossing Powders and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Dots®Permanent. I really love this teachnique to create a "grungy" background. The adhesive works so well with the powders. First I covered a tag with the E-Z dots.
Then I sprinkled different colors of WOW! Embossing Powderon top.There is no need to heat between colors just make sure to tap of the excess powders very well before adding another color.

When all of the adhesive is covered heat the embossing powder until it all has melted. The texture will look even better once heated.

After that I sprayed the entire tag withTattered AngelsGlimmer Mist to color the background. The embossed parts work as a resist and the paint will not stick there. Here are some close-ups and  the final result:

Thank you for joining me today! Wishing you a sunny and creative summer! Happy crafting! Birgit Koopsen

Happy Olympics from the Glitter Girls

Hi Everybody!!!!
So has everyone recovered from the opening ceremonies?!!!!  Wow!  What a show!  It was spectacular!
Wishing luck to all the teams from all over the world!
Speaking of teams, we have the Glitter Girls up on the blog today! They have been up to their armpits in glitter, and have some yummy projects to feast your eyes on!
First up is Jen Matott!
Here is what she says about her amazing banner! "I created a mixed media banner using Basically Bare's Oh So Mini albums that were released this month.I love the different materials that they are made from and how the stamps and embossing powders work on them! I used many items to create this banner.
This cardboard piece was created with a brick template and VersaMark with WOW Embossing powders mixed and layered. I started with Cable Car Red and then layered Black Glint and some Copper. I then added the "Journey" Stamp and embossed with Bright White. The dots are Gelatos through a stencil and then dripped some Gelatos mixed wi…

CHA Summer 2012

Last week saw the WOW! Embossing Powders take their place at the Craft and Hobby Association's Summer 2012 Show near Chicago, USA. The stand was designed to showcase all that could be done with embossing powders, in particular featuring the two national flags - each painstakingly made by the fabulous Tania from moulded blocks of embossing powder.


I was honoured to have a piece of my own embossing creativity on display at the show - you can just see it at the right hand edge of the Union Jack. I enlarged a photo of the bus to 24" square and traced the main outlines onto white coated hardboard (12" square sections bought and cut at the local B&Q - they had to travel!) using pencil. The white board is gently textured and seems to grip the embossing powder well. I then filled in each area with WOW! Embossing Pen before adding and heat setting the powders section by section. I used WOW! Ebony and WOW! Apple Red, both in Ultra High, and WOW! Lemon Regular.

We'll be at…

Call me card

Hello, my dear crafting friends! Irit is here again and after a long layouts posting, this time I made a card.
This is a travel time. Summer vacation  is just around and we all travel. So I made this card to make my dear friend  to call me (she is going to visit her family in USA )
I used October Afternoon travel collection  to make the card, and then added Call me  stamp set phones and a sentiment, heat embossed with Suzy West Cable Red embossing powder and  Ivory Black Regular one.
I also embossed the basic cardstock with the same Cable Red around using Versamark Watermark embossing ink.
And a close up on phones:
Hope you are going to make some Travel cards for your friends with our fantastic Wow goodies!

You Love the Outdoors Wow Layout

Happy Monday Everyone!
I'm getting off to a late start after fighting off a migraine but it's super sunny and beautiful here in So Cal so I'm going to share my layout and then head out into the sunshine!!

Today I have a layout to share which uses both the Wow! stamps and powder.


This is my sweet nephew who just LOVES being outside in the dirt!
I used the "Is it a bird?" and "Gratitude" stamp sets and the Regular Earthtone Honey powder.
The title is cut on my Silhouette and then I embossed them with the honey embossing powder.
It's an easy way to tint a title and gives it some texture and shine.
If you haven't played with your powders and stamps in a while, break them out and have a fun play day!

I hope you are all having a fantastic summer!!

Run away art journal page by Birgit Koopsen

I created this art journal page using embossing powders and adhesives (repositionable dots from Scrapbook AdhesivesTM by 3L) to create a grungy, textured background. I first added the adhesive to the background going over the same spot a couple of times and then sprinkled it with embossing powder. Cotton Candy and Bay Area Blue at the top and Earthtone Olive at the bottom. After embossing I sprayed the background with Glimmer Mist and added the stamps from the “Is it a bird?” stamp set.

"Count Down to Christmas" Fridge Magnet

Hi, Christine Saunders here again with my blog post for July.
I hate to say it but Christmas is coming (sorry) and like a boy scout I like to "be prepared" so,  I have made a "Count Down to Christmas" Fridge Magnet using the WoW range of Flocks. The numbers can be changed daily as a count down to the big day.
For this project I cut out a Die Cut shape from a sticky-backed Magnetic Shim.  I then cut out some tree shapes from the paper layer that I had peeled off the back of the shim and stuck these back onto the shape half way down so that the flock wouldn't stick to them. Layers of coloured flocks were then added to the shape to create the sky, backgound and foreground. I used Sky Blue, Light Green, Dark Green and Dark Brown Flock.
I then peeled off the paper exposing the sticky tree-shape to which I then added Dark and Light Green Flock to create the look of trees.
I then cut out free-hand some holly leaf shapes,  peeled off the backing paper and added Dark G…
