WOW! January challenge

In the WOW design team we have all been working hard creating samples with a Valentines theme which you can view on the WOW blog. There are also some fab storage ideas and tutorials. Keep checking back there will be plenty more to come!

This is what I created for the first brief from WOW of creating valentines themed projects using WOW stamps. There are some really nice sets of stamps available but at present I don't have any of the sets that actually have hearts on. I hope these samples show that you can use lots of different types of stamps to create a theme even if they don't obviously fit.

This slide mailer was just a bit of fun - a different way of sending a valentines message...

The hearts on the cover are made by cutting 2 petals from the spotty flower on the 'Happy Birthday flower' stamp set and the background script, phone and text are from the ''Call Me' stamp set.

WOW powders used: black glint regular ('call me' wording), primary ebony superfine (telephone), gold rich superfine (text background), gold rich regular (edges), ebony regular (hearts).

 Butterfly Hearts card

WOW Powders used: blue pearl regular (butterflies), silver regular (flourishes and edging), metallic silver ultra high (triple embossed heart)

Join in the challenge.....

Join us by making your own valentine inspired creation using WOW products and enter the January challenge on the WOW blog to be in with a chance of winning 6 WOW! embossing powders of your choice and a handy carry case! The colours are just a guide. Have fun!
