"In the Pink" - Mother's Day Necklace and Gift Box Present.

Hi, Christine Saunders here again with an idea for a  Mother's Day present.    Iv'e made a decorated gift box which includes a necklace inside - all made using WoW Flourescent Embossing Powders.

Iv'e stamped a Butterfly onto Black cardstock and and embossed it with Flourescent "Tickled Pink" powder. I then re-embossed it with "Clear Sparkle" powders then 3 layers of "Ultra High Clear Gloss". This gave the Butterfly depth so that I could attach a jump ring and chain to the top to make the Butterfly into a necklace.
The antennae and legs of the Butterfly were made with two Eye Pins which I shaped with round nosed pliars.

I embossed a small round gift box with "Flourescent Pink" Regular powder and added a stamped  ribbon and adhesive black gems around the base. The lid was decorated with embossed  leaves and flowers using a variety of WoW Flower Stamps. I added adhesive gems to the centres of each flower to finish the gift box. 

Powders used: Flourescent Pink Regular             Stamps used:   Fauna
                       Flourescent Tickled Pink                                       With Love

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…

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…

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…
