Hello and welcome to the WOW! Embossing Powder New Release giveaway Hop!  We are so excited to show case to you our New Release collections. Bright, fun and seasonal, these powder collections have it all.

The new Catherine Pooler powder Cranberry Sparkle is a perfect go-to colour for Christmas crafting, but I thought I’d show how it could be used for any kind of project. Here I used it through one of my favourite stencils to create this stunning background and teamed it with Galaxy Glow, which is gorgeous as it is but really comes alive in the dark!

Cranberry Sparkle has so many different colours running through it.

Just look at how stunning this powder is in the dark!!

Using the same technique I couldn’t resist making a new monthly dashboard for my planner inspired by the colours I see around me at the moment.

Over an ink smooshed background, I stencilled the squares with texture paste and added Gilded powder from the Toteally Amazing trio, while it was still wet. I used my heat tool to set it and speed up the drying of the paste. The die cut shapes have been embossed with Iced Teal from the same set and Orangeade from Summer Scoops trio. I kept the letters of November plain and black so they would stand out on the colourful background.

The colours and feel on both of these projects are so very different but still created with the same mixed media which I love.

Materials used: Toteally Amazing Trio, Summer Scoops Trio and Galaxy Glow.

World card day blog hop

Read Time:1 Minute, 28 Second

Today is World Card Making Day and together with my team mates at WOW! Embossing Powder and organised by our team leader Jo, we’re hosting a fun and inspirational blog hop to celebrate.

Card making is more important than ever right now. Sending a few words just to show someone you’re thinking of them, especially if you can’t say it in person, the thought will always be appreciated.

I thought I’d use one of my favourite stamp sets from WOW! Flights of Fancy to create these three cards.

In this first card below, I’ve used Glassy Ocean from the Dockside Trio and Serene from the Riviera Trio both of which are gorgeous sets of powders.

On the card below I’ve used one of my favourite Trio’s, Forever 13 which features a beautiful glittery turquoise, a purple and delicate pink. I just love using these together.

And finally for my third card I used All That Jazz from the same Forever 13 trio but on its own this time. I’m just a sucker for a turquoise colour.

I do hope you’ve found some inspiration here and throughout our hop. Do continue on and visit us all. Comment along each of the Design Team member’s posts for a chance to win a $25 gift card to either our UK or USA stores. (One comment per blog please). You have until Wednesday, October 7th at 11:59PM British Summertime to leave your comments. Winners will be announced on Thursday, October 8th. So here’s the full line up below.

WOW! with seth apter and stencil girl blog hop

Read Time:2 Minute, 42 Second

As a huge fan of all companies represented here, I’m beyond thrilled to be taking part in this awsome hop with my fellow WOW! family to showcase not only Seth Apter and WOW! Embossing Powders but Stencil Girl products too.

I was very fortunate to be given some fabulous Stencil Girl stencils by not only Seth Apter but Rae Missigman – another of my arting heroes. With so much to play with a simple card just didn’t seem to cut it, so I decided on a mini journal in which I could show off as much as possible!

Mini Album Unsettled

Where do I start…? Well, I suppose I was inspired by the words on one of the Seth Apter stencils, “Unsettled” – it summed me up perfectly at the time. Having lost my beloved job to Covid 19 I did loose my way a bit during the Summer and this mini journal reflects that journey (for want of a better word) from the uncertainty to positivity and hope for the future. I filled it with inspirational words of hope and self discovery as I took a look at myself and who I really was and who I wanted to be moving forward.

I created the book from a single piece of A5 paper, brayered with coloured paints. Taking a piece of cut and dry foam, I added embossing ink through the stencils and embossed in Primary Ebony for dramatic contrast. The focal images on each page were stencilled in the same way and embossed with the Cosmic Trio Powders by Seth and the Riviera Trio. I cut shapes from the stencilled images to create pattern and interest and edged everything with Scattered Straw Distress ink.

I enjoyed cutting shapes from the stencil embossed images

Creating shapes and patterns from die cuts adds another level of interest and the stencilled shapes with added texture from the powders make this little book a very tactile and abstract experience.

I have a bit of a ‘thing’ for repeating patterns. The text stencil when cut up into squares is quite funky I think!

We are collaborating for a two day blog hop so there is plenty of opportunity to discover something new. As well as inspiration we’re also giving away a $35 Gift Certificate to StencilGirl® Products, a $35 Gift Certificate to Seth Apter’s Shop AND a $25 Gift Certificate to WOW!

So here are the details;

#spreadjoynotgerms Blog Hop

Read Time:1 Minute, 9 Second

Hello there and welcome if you’re joining from the Spread Joy not Germs blog hop. I’m proud to be involved connected with WOW! Embossing Powder with this huge event along side so many talented individuals from some amazing companies who are all sponsoring this event with prizes to be won.

The idea is to spread joy at this difficult time through inspiring cards and I chose to create a postcard with an inky, colourful background and embellished with a bold embossed butterfly.

To create my background I dipped the card into Catherine Pooler inks which I had dabbed onto my craft mat and sprayed with water to activate the ink. I dried each colour in between to keep them bright and fresh. I used the text stamp from the Wall Art stamp set to add interest as well as some doodling and a little scrap of text paper.

The butterfly die cut is from Pink and Main and is one of my favourites. It was heat embossed firstly with 101 Embossing Powder then again with Bang and the combination of the two is beautiful I think.

If you go back to the blog of WOW! Embossing – here, you can continue to visit the other blogs and web sites along the way, or go to the start at Catherine Pooler. #spreadjoynotgerms

Happy hopping and thank you for visiting.
