Foiled Flower Card

Hi Folks, Rachel here with my project for this months challenge.

 I decided to make a card this month using a mask, instead of stamps with the foils, to give a different look.

I created my background by spritzing mica mists onto white card. After drying I put my mask on top and inked through with Versamark ink, then removed the mask and covered with WOW! Bonding Powder; it only adheres to the inked areas. and as you put the rest back in the pot a little goes a long way!
I set the Bonding Powder slightly by heating with a WOW! Heat Gun and then, using the WOW!Snowy White Fab Foil, I covered the image and ran it through my laminator, (I chose to use the white foil as it has a subtle shine and I didn't want it to have to compete with the mica mist background I'd spritzed).  After matting and layering on complementary card I used thin high tack tape to edge my topper and covered this with WOW! Bright Gold Fab Foil. The tape really grabs the foil and gives a great finish; good for borders or that 'little something extra' that cards often need!  A few punched butterflies from my waste background paper and one 'Nature' card finished! 

Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Gorgeous! It took me a few seconds to realise that the background is foiled, not the flowers!

  2. That´s very pritty! I love how you have used the butterfly image.

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…
