Wedding Frame & Invite

Hi Bloggers, Rachel here and it's my turn to' WOW' you all today.

I decided to follow the Wedding theme and make a frame - but then I noticed that the brief was Wedding Invitations so I made one of those too!
As you can see below, on both projects I stuck with the pastel colours but also used Bright White on the invite and Gold Rich Pale on the frame to give some contrast.
Anyhow here are my offerings:

On this invitation I used Pastel Pink and Bright White Embossing Powders. I cut the window using a Nestie and used an Embossing Pen and Pastel Pink EP to edge it.  The music is stamped onto vellum, embossed using Bright White EP and then torn. The tree is from the 'Is It A Bird' stamp set.

This picture frame took a little longer to create.
I used a Malma mirror from Ikea - such a tiny mirror and massive frame:). I primed it with a coat of gesso and then randomly painted it with two colours of green acrylic paint. Then for the fun bit! Stamping and embossing the whole frame using the Brocade stamp and Pastel Yellow EP. The swirls were cut with a die and coated with Gold Rich Pale EP, as was the sentiment. A few flowers, metal corners, and of course, a special photo and you have a lovely keepsake.

I hope you like my projects this month - keep tuned to see all the other lovely things created by our talented Design Team.

Have fun!

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…

We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…

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…
