Grateful for you!

Hi everyone! Birgit here from the Netherlands. It's cold, windy and rainy here so perfect weather to stay inside and create! And how fun it is to create with these fantastic WOW embossing powders! Love the colors and the structure! And the stamps... just gorgeous!
I'm very excited to share my first layout here.
I love to create with little strips and blocks of paper in different colors and with different patterns. I'm always left with a lot of scraps, big scraps, because sometimes I only use a one inch strip of a whole sheet of paper. Recognize that?
So why not create your own patterned paper and bring 1 single sheet of cardstock to great value?
For this layout I cut half a sheet of white cardstock into strips of different sizes. I stamped the strips with a variety of stamps and embossed them with different colors.
The tickets and leaves where also stamped on white cardstock and embossed.
The little butterflies are actually part of a flower stamp (Gratitude) of which I only used the top part. I applied them to the layout with staples so I could bend the wings.
Behind the picture you find a cake cup that was embossed with the same color which gives it a nice structure. I also did that with the flower.
The chipboard letters where first embossed with puff powder and then covered with fine clear embossing powder.
Supplies used:
WOW! Embossing Powders: Suzy West Whirly Pop, Tea Garden Green, California Sunshine, Bay Area Blue, Presidio Purple, Skyline Grey Puff and Clear Gloss Super Fine.
WOW! stamps: Brocade and Gratitude
Patterend paper and chipboard letters: Basic Grey, Flower: Prima Marketing inc., letterstickers: Lily Bee design, Other: Kraft cardstock, cake cup, black pen, Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you got inspired to get you some of these wonderful powders and stamps and create some art work!

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…
