Layout with WOW! clear gloss regular


Hi there!

Birgit here from the cold, cold Netherlands! I've been ice skating on the canals in our village as much as I could since I returned from sunny CHA.
That is fun but to be honest I'm really a summer girl! Looking to the layout I'm sharing here today makes me wish I was right back there where the picture was taken. In sunny France.


All embossing powder on this page is WOW! clear gloss regular.
To create the background I first stamped and embossed the floral background stamp on white card stock. Then I sprayed the card stock with glimmer mist. The embossed parts work as a resist. Just wipe off the wet spray with a paper towel after spraying.
I also sprinkled some embossing powder on the fabric flowers which gives the shades of color after spraying them.


The chipboard letters and butterflies were rubbed with dark red distress ink and then covered with embossing powder. The same ink was used for the edges of the leaves and for the ticket before embossing them.


Finally I gave the wooden buttons a glossy look with a layer of embossing powder.

Wishing you all a lovely and creative weekend! Make sure to get those embossing powders out and play a little. I will!!

Smiles,

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…

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:



STEP ONE

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…

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…
