Wrapping up the year with WOW!

Hi WOW fans,

Happy New Years Eve! Can you believe that it is December 31st already? Where did the year go? This year marks the first ever US design team for WOW! embossing powders and our WOW! girls did a wonderful job representing our products.

When I think of New Years I think of glitter - so I have a fun glittery layout to share with you today.

Title: Merry & Bright by DT Lead Gina Lideros

I first started my layout by cutting out this 12x12 star background with my Silhouette.
Then I used my Versamark ink pad to ink the whole background in portions. I covered my background with Angel Wings embossing glitter and then heat embossed it. Because it was such a large area, I had to do a couple of layers. The result is so glittery and fun.

Next, I stamped my title Merry & bright on a shipping tag using the Merry and Bright Christmas stamp set and embossed my title and a few cut out stars using Sierra Sunrise.

Our last post of 2012

WOW... what a year!
I am so lucky to be bringing you the last DT project of 2012...... 
Thank you all so much for joining us this year and for playing along with our challenges. We have loved seeing all of the wonderful things that you have created, you really are a talented bunch you know!

For my last cards of the year I thought I would make you all a thank you card......
This is what I came up with......
 And a little close up for you.....
I also made a little tag to go with it.....

I adore these papers from WOW! They have the embossing already on them, so all you need to do is add the ink and then wipe..... (The ink will only stay on the card without the embossed details)..
The paper comes in different designs and can be found here....

So, come back and join us for lots of fun and exciting things in 2013 - lots of new challenges and lots of things to show you all with all the wonderful products from WOW!.

Have a very happy Hogmany and all the best for a fantastic 2013 -

Happy New …

Hi!
It´s Katarina here with today's educator post.
This post means so much to me, it´s my farewell to all of my lovely DT colleagues, and a team that I have loved to be a part of. It´s also a farewell to all of you blog readers, that have followed me here, from my first trying steps as a video educator until today. But all good things must come to an end, and I have decided that it´s time for me to move on.

I love all the great girls in this team, there have been a family spirit among us from day one, and that's something I will remember.

Today I´m sharing with you this project that I did the other day... it´s a pair of ugly duckling shoes. :)
all you need is a Cameo, or any other kind of die cut machine, some book cover vinyl, and some WOW embossing sparkly embossing powder, I used the metallic platinum sparkle.

What I did? Well I turned a well worn comfy shoes in to my party shoes for new years eve...










and with this I wish you all a Happy New Year, and I hope that 2013 will be a goo…

Embossing chipboard to make fancy cards

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and this time I want to show you a couple of cards I made with Wow Embossing Powders and Wow stamps.This is my last post on USA team and I am moving to WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS UK/GLOBAL team from January, also  those are still pretty much same gorgeous products I designed with for a year.
The first card is this very lovely Bee Happy card.
I used Prima papers, a piece of Honeycomb A2Z Scraplets chipboard and Wow stamp HAPPY from the  Everyday Sentiments set.
The chipboard piece was inked with clear embossing  ink and then heat embossed twice with  Soar Lemon Yellow embossing powder. The Happy word was a part of Happy Birthday sentiment, but I used this plastic Bee for a part of my Bee Happy sentiment after all. I  Used the same Yellow powder for the word Happy.







My second card is this shabby, but yet clean and simple card, made with Brocade background stamp . I used light blue cardstock and white ink to stamp on it, and them heat embossed it with 

Happy New Year in Style!

Jen here to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas!  I am now looking forward to celebrating the New Year! I made a fun paper crown to use as decoration or to wear when I ring in 2013!
 I covered the numbers and stars with WOW Embossing glitter powder.  The numbers are Bodacious Blue Embossing Glitter and the butterfly frame behind it is Angel Wings. The stars are covered in Sierra Sunset and Metallic Platinum Sparkle Embossing Glitter. 
 I made a paper medallion and attached the frame and numbers to it.  This was glued to the front of the crown.
 Here you can see the edges of the crown points that are edged in Metallic Platinum Sparkle.  I just used VersaMark along the edges and then covered it with the powder. 
 The stars are attached to a circle punched out and a piece of floral wire between them.
I love these Embossing Glitters from WOW... they are super sparkly and don't rub off like regular glitter.  I love that I can heat set them and not worry about the sparkles falling off…

Homemade Christmas present... mini magnets

Hi everyone,

It's Sarah here (from Sarah Rhodes Designs Blog) with today's blog post based around using Ultra High Embossing Powder... I strayed off the theme of New Year as I knew exactly what I wanted to create with the Ultra High Embossing Powder... something that I've had on my 'to do list' for ages!

I saw the idea of Pantone chip magnets on Pinterest a while ago but tried it (as they recommended) with a 3D gloss but it didn't work... once the chips had dried, they were fuzzy and slightly blurred. I print from an ink jet printer (as I'm sure most people do) so if the ink gets wet... it does run and this was the problem! I wanted to try the same idea but using Ultra High Embossing Powder as the print out would only be in contact with a light coating of versamark ink and so I didn't think it would bleed... anyway as you can see it worked! :D






I wanted to make a few sets as I wanted one to keep and two to give away to some of my design friends as part o…

Art Journal Every Day December - Christmas Traditions

Hi there, Birgit here! Welcome to the WOW! blog today!

This is my last post on this blog. As from January I will be switching to the WOW! UK/Global Blog.
Thank you Suzy, Gina and Wow! Design Team members for a wonderful year! And thank you readers for reading my blog posts! I hope I was able to inspire you and jump start your creativity! Hopefully I will see you all again on the UK blog!

It's almost Christmas and I want to share with you an art journal page about my Christmas tree decorations for which I created an embossed Christmas tree.


I started with applying an Adhesive Sheet (Scrapbook AdhesivesTM by 3L) to a piece of cardstock and embossed it with a mix of green embossing powders, Glamour Green Glitter, Earthtone Olive Regular, Primary Evergreen Super Fine (WOW! Embossing Powders).



Then I tore the embossed paper into pieces, creating the branches of the tree.



I added some turquoise acrylic paint to 2 pieces of patterend paper to create a background and applied the branches to the…

Party Invitations Booklet for 2013

Hi there, Christine here again with this month's project.

                                                                   This month Iv'e created a Party Invitations Booklet so I can add all my friends names and addresses into one place ready to get those invites out in the post.
To make this booklet you need a piece of Funky Foam folded in half. Cut into the edges to distress and heat the foam up with a heat gun in sections. Whilst each section is hot, press a stamp or other item with a raised surface into the foam.  Ink up the raised surfaces with a gold ink pad.
Tear a piece of blue paper and scrunch it up, fold it out flat and ink up the edges and surface with brown ink.  Add clear Versamark Embossing Pad to the raised surface areas only and emboss with Caribbean Jewels "Cayman Coral" Embossing Powder.

Emboss some cut out numbers 2013 with Martinique Mauve from the "Caribbean Jewels" set and add this to the front. Emboss some chipboard shapes with…

A yummy Christmas package with WOW!

Hello!  Jen Roach here and today I have a little Christmas package to share with you.  During the holidays I give a fair amount of gift cards and I always like to come up with a pretty package to put them in.

For this package I stamped all over a white wedding treat bag with the Funky Borders stamps set and then created a little collage with some scraps of paper, ribbon and a gingerbread man.  To make my gingerbread man appear like a "real" cookie, I heat embossed it with some of the WOW! Earthtone Nutmeg embossing powder.  It really adds a lot of texture and gives him the appearance of being a real cookie.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CHALLENGE- Embossing on Fabric

Hi Jenifer here with you today to present our next challenge.  Did you know you could emboss on fabric?  Well you can, and just imagine all the possibilities :) I have embossed on some plain muslin and made these cute gift tags for Christmas. Here is a close up of the Metallic Platinum Sparkle embossing glitter on white muslin.  You emboss on fabric the same way you would on paper.
Here is a close up of the bright white embossing powder. These "Tags"  they are super easy to make all you need is 2 pieces of fabric and a piece of felt sandwiched in the middle and sew around all the edges.  Embellish as desired.  I plan to use these on some layouts after they come off the packages.

I hope this has inspired you to create some of your own custom embellishments. I hope you play along.
Jenifer

BELIEVE .....

When you need a card in a hurry, this is your one... It's one of my favourite designs, I first did this card a few years ago, but without embossing powder, now I ONLY do it with embossing powder, it really makes it POP !!! All you need is the following:-
5" square card Scrap card for the baubles and sentiment Ribbon and not forgetting your fabulous Blizzard and Collage stamps and the gorgeous Caribbean Jewels Limited Edition Set
Ink up your Blizzard Stamp and on a scrap piece of card stamp the design, then using your two favourite colours out of the Limited Edition Set, sprinkle the two colours over the design, shake off the excess and heat set.

From this, punch out two circles. These can then be mounted on the card front, add a bit of thin ribbon, then take two bits of ribbon and tie a knot and stick this just above the bauble.
Stamp the word believe from the Collage set and cut into a banner, cut a larger banner and emboss this, mount the sentiment on top and add to the ca…
