 Lovin' the zig zags, and wondering how she did that?
She shared a few tips on this fun technique!

Benedict sprayed some ink on a mask, and she embossed the text of the 'Call Me' stamp board with some Earthtone Paprika Regular powder. She also colored the leaves from the stamp board 'Gratitude' with some Earthtone Olive Regular color. She added a line of hearts colored with some Earthtone Paprika Regular powder below the pictures. Then she arranged the Gratitude text she had previously embossed with some Sierra Sunrise embossing Glitter.   Wow, thats the perfect word!

 Diana embossed each of the chipboard letters with Earthtone Olive, and then restamped the letters with the 'Call Me' stamp and embossed with Primary Bark. In addition, she embossed the Maya Road Wood Bingo Motif with Earthtone Olive. To help add color to the project she used packaging materials to stamp little circles on the left hand side. This pattern was embossed with Earthtone Olive. On top of the little circles she stamped with a Call Me stamp and embossed with Primary Bark embossing powder.

She made the cutest card!!!  I love all the hearts! 
This card would be great to send to your Valentine!
Love the little wooden clothes pin too! 
Here is what Jeannie had to say about her card!

"Here is a colorful card I made using the stamp set called Gratitude.
  I built the background using the 2 border stamps using the
Cable Car Red and Cotton Candy embossing powders.

I used the same powders on colored papers for the hearts.
One thing that I did, that I loved, was to use the Cable Car Red powder on the
metal frame and the brads so that everything matched perfectly.
I am having so much fun working with these powders.
The color combinations are amazing!
Thanks for letting me share my creation with you!"
Alrighty, now we have Jen.
 Her projects are always so colorful!
 Take a peek at this little number!
Her "Hi Friend" card is super cute!

Love the colors, love the pearls on the butterfly, and love the cloud!!!
 Love the whole darn thing!

For this card, Jen stamped the flower stamp with 5 different colors onto white
cardstock and cut out the banner pieces. She stamped the butterfly onto book
paper and cut out to layer over the banner. The background paper is a page from
an Irish shory book that is edged with silver. The cloud was made with
embossing ink pressed through a stencil and Ultra High powder added in 2 layers.
Jen stamped the "Hi Friend" stamp into the warm melted powder for a metal
stamped look.   The colors are so bright and cheerful!  Looks so cute!

Supplies List:
Stamps: "Build a Butterfly" STAMPSET7
"Flowers" STAMPSET5
WOW powders: Metallic Silver Ultra High WC05UH
Suzy West WOW powders:
Cable Car Red Regular
California Sunshine Regular
Tea Garden Green Regular
Bay Area Blue Regular
Presidio Purple Regular

Okay, next up is Erin.
She made a layout as well. Lets check it out!

She was working on a travel layout, and needed some airplanes, so she made a template out by using the negative part from airplanes she cut out with her Cricut.  She then poured on both cable car red, and California sunshine, and embossed it onto her background. She also embossed the chipboard airplane using California sunshine as well. She also embossed the small "tourist" tag with the cute swirly stamp.  Turned out great!

Supply List:
Suzy West powders: cable car red, and California sunshine
Stamp set: Gratitude
Papers and embellishments: October Afternoon
 Yellow Sticker letters: Jillibean Soup

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.

I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!

Here are brief instructions on how to make it:


Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…
