It Will Show You The Way Altered Box

Hi crafty friends!

I hope you are well and feeling creative. My post today features plenty of bling and shine with this cute box / card combo I created using WOW's new Sparkles glitter.

My substrate was just a plain old gift box I'd saved which I painted with chalk paint. I used Peppermint Stick glitter over stenciling details and added a touch of Perissa embossing powder onto the stones which surround the flowers.

Adding pink and a deep purple inks into the glitter gives a tint and a more blended, softer look to the Sparkles.

Open the box to find a micro greeting card inside! The card is decorated with a heart covered in both Peachy Keen and Prom Queen Sparkles glitter . I softened the heart outline with stones and the Perissa embossing powder which was used on the front of the box.


I stamped the sides of the box with the lines and brush strokes stamps from WOW's new release Wall Art set. I think they work really well together, creating an almost basket weave pattern.

See how the glitter lifts everything? Just by added small touches of it here and there makes a big difference to projects!

I hope you're inspired to give WOW's Sparkles a try and  don't forget to join in the challenge on the blog!

Warm hugs,

WOW! 2017 Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends!

Today is a very exciting day.... it's time for a WOW! embossing blog hop, where we are celebrating the new releases for 2017. And boy, they are exciting!

created my card using the new Wall Art, Hearts & Twine stamp sets, Sparkles glitter and gorgeous new embossing powders.

The blingy Sparkles glitter (in Celebration and Coral Beach) works perfectly accenting areas of projects. Here I've used them around a die cut circle and under a piece of acetate.

For the focal point, I stamped the smaller heart from the Hearts & Twine set and adhered glass micro beads into the centre. I then sprayed with a mica spray and added pinches of embossing powders (Champers, Rose Gold, Perissa, Sand Dune and Copacabana) into the wet surface before melting and drying with a heat tool. 

Don't forget to check out the WOW! website to see the range of new products along with stockist information on how to get your hands on the new products.
