I thought that It would be fun to see what would happen if I embossed on ribbons, well let me say I just love the results. I stamped it on a piece of 2 1/2" May Arts Grosgrain ribbon and that with the combination of wonderful stamps and powders it sure comes out nice and crisp. I used the Brocade stamp with the Earthtone Olive and the Pastel Pink Embossing powders. The green I put as an patterned element with in my circle, can you just see how crisp the design is. and the pink I then embossed but cut and rolled into the pink flower in the center. I just love how this layout turned out and I think that I will be putting this one into a frame. I do have an FYI if you try this make sure your don't heat to long on your ribbon because it will start to melt, believe me I know :) Jenifer Cowles
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…
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!
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…

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…
