Welcome New 2016 Design Team!!!

Hi Everyone!

Please join us in wishing a very warm welcome to the 2016 WOW! Embossing Powder Design Team! We have some very talented ladies on board with us this year and we are really looking forward to seeing what they create with our products! 

Without further ado, here is our new Design Team:


Fran Westmoreland

My name is Fran (or Francine if I'm being formal!) and I reside in Derbyshire, England. I have loved anything artistic since I was very young and grew up with creativity around me. I started cardmaking in 2006 which flourished into scrapbooking and altered mixed media art and is now a huge part of my life now. When I'm not busy at my craft desk I enjoy the freedom and beauty of being outdoors, running and walking as much as I can. I'm also a coffee and tea addict lol.

I am looking forward to being part of the 2016 WOW design team and to be able to inspire you on how to use WOW products in a variety of different ways and help to push your creativity.  Looking forward t…

Hi Everyone

This month at WOW HQ is anything goes, so I have taken inspiration from a fellow artist Lea DeCosta www.careandfeedingofartists.com and used her 'Serenity' words.

The words are 'Sometimes I forget that it is not what I put on paper that matters most, it is the 'putting' itself, the act of writing something down - making a mark.  The peaceful feeling I get from letting something go'

I started by taking the flower and meadow stamps from 'Make a wish' and 'ME Collage' and stamping onto white card stock with Versamark and heat set with clear embossing powder.  I then gently went over the images with distress inks.  The second layer is made of spray inks and placed on top while wet is sea salt.  This is left overnight  to dry and to cause the pattern on the card stock.  The third layer is alcohol inks onto glossy card stock then stamped with Versamark and heat set with ebony embossing powder.  The scroll at the top of the card is heat set …

Balloon Girl

Hello!
I thought I would share another WOW! art doll with you today!


Her dress was made by triple embossing a piece of chipboard cut to shape. I used Primary Apple Red powder, and added white dots by sprinkling White Ultra High powder onto the molten red surface. I also added a bow..



The bow was created using the fab bow mould, and has red glitter powder on it to give an extra sparkle!
I created a flower in exactly the same way. and added it to her hair...





She is gazing at three blue balloons.... again, triple embossed using Pastel Glacier Mint, Fluorescent Blue and Azure powders...


I hope you like her!
Have a great day,
Trish

Valentine Box

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share this altered Valentine box that I created.
I had this heart shaped box laying around for just the right project to re decorate and with Valentines day coming up right around the corner I thought now was the time.  I first covered the box with some white on white patterned paper and then embossed over the top of that.
Here is a close up of some of the beautiful Wow Embossing powders.  Don't you just LOVE how nice and sparkly they are?
Once I had the base layer completed I then just layered ribbons and flowers until I had the desired look.  Don't throw away those fun boxes next time turn them into little pieces of art.

Thank you butterfly

It's a new year and also a new challenge here at the WOW blog. Today it's me, Maya, who is typing. This month's theme is anything goes so you can do whatever you feel like as long as you use WOW products or heat embossing on your project. 
I finally got to use a new stamp set that I designed called Mariposa and this large butterfly is my favourite. I wanted it to fill up most part of a standard sized card front and it turned out better than I imagined. I embossed it in Black Twinkle embossing powders. Its a really pretty black embossing powder with glitter in it. It's very easy to color the butterfly after embossing it, I used Spectrum Aquas and some Sparkle pens on top to make the whole butterfly shimmer. 

Look at all that glitter! So pretty! I used the Pick n Mix set for my sentiment and made a striped strip using the long border stamp in the set. I decorated with sequins and some gold thread and my card was done. 
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you like t…
