Mum's the Word!

Hi All

Well it's The Crafting Owl here with a project for all the lovely mums out there. The Design Team were given the Fluroescent colours to play with and as my mum likes pink I decided to go with this and use it for my design. I decided to make a wall-hanging as I've not made one for a while and this is quite easy and simple to do.

I particularly liked the Fluroescent colour 'Tickled Pink' so decided to use it for the lettering. I chose some lovely spring papers to compliment the design to give it a really girly feel.

Here you can see the hanging in all its glory...

A close-up of the lettering... small beads add accent to an edge which admittedly I forgot to ink

Spot the powder used on the birds wings...

Well folks, that's all from me. 'Owl be back soon with another project. Don't forget to enter this month's challenge to win a maahoosive 12 powders of your choice in a case, gotta be worth having a go for!

Another teamie will be along soon with more inspiration, until then...

Happy Embossing
'The Crafting Owl'

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
