Powder Pixies coming at ya on Super Bowl Sunday

Hi there everyone and Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Tricia here to share some projects from me & my awesome team. First up is Jamie Cripps darling Happy Birthday watering can and flowers. Here is what Jamie has to say about her project, "I stamped yellow cardstock with the Flowers stamp and then used the Suzy West Skyline Grey Puffy Embossing Powder (reg.) to emboss. Once the powder was cool, I punched out five circles and ten petal flowers. I cut spirals into the circle and rolled them to create the center of the flowers then used foam squares to combine all the pieces for each flower.Here designer Jenifer Cowles used Wow Embossing Powder in "Pastel Pink" on her card. She embossed it on 2 1/2" grosgrain ribbon giving it wonderful effect.

This darling little mini album is by designer Tanisha Long. Tanisha used Sour Lemon, Earth Tone Honey, Metallic Copper, and a mix of Earth Tone Pepper and Cotton Candy. She also used the WOW Call Me Stamp Set.

Tanisha shares a fun technique; "Did you know that you can mix your WOW colors? Sure can!! I mixed Earth Tone Pepper and Cotton Candy together and then added to my chipboard letters and heat embossed as I normally would. I love the speckled look."

Here, designer Linda Abadie has created a card using stamped background and embossed with Earthtone Pepper Regular and added a layer of patterned paper underneath it before machine stitch throughout the card. She added a chipboard that was embossed with Presidio Purple Regular and distressed using sand paper for accent. She added some paper flowers and ribbon. Leaves were embossed with Earthtone Olive Regular.

With CHA right behind us, I'd like to share how I used the embossing powders to help decorate our fabulous booth. My portion of the display was highlighting the "Candy Counter" collection. I used the colors in a variety ways, some of which are highlighted below.

She how vibrant the colors pop even on darker cardstock? Hope you enjoyed our projects that we shared with you today and thanks for stopping by! Please leave us a comment as we LOVE to read and hear what you think.

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…

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…
