The Powder Pixies are back

Hi there and Happy St. Patricks day! Tricia and the Powder Pixies are back to show you some unique projects to delight and hopefully inspire you.

For this week post, 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.

Jenifer Cowles used the Earthtone Blueberry embossing powder and the Brocade and Gratitude stamp for her "Thank you so very much" card.
Jamie Cripps made this stunning frame with flowers.
Here is a close up.
She has even provided us with instructions on how she achieved the look.

Iris used the stamp set "Is It A Bird", ultra high gold, ultra high copper, and angel wings on her amazing project.
For my project I made a layout. I had some strips of left over Amy Butler fabric (LOVE)and wanted to add a bit more texture to the edges with some embossing. I simply stamps directly onto the fabric, then sprinkled some Ultra Rich Super High Gold on top. The trick with embossing on fabric is to do it slowly and take your time, otherwise you may end up blowing your embossing powder all over the place (yes, I learned that lesson the hard way).

I hope you have enjoyed our post today. Please leave us any comments or questions you may have. We'd love to hear from you!

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW!
