Kraft and white WOW!

Hello!  Jen Roach here and today I have a few quick and easy cards to share with you that I created using some kraft cardstock, WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder and the WOW! Gratitude stamp set

But first, don't forget about the blog hop (with an awesome prize pack) that we have going on.  All of the details can be found on Suzy's  post here.


For this first card I created the background using two stamps from the WOW! Gratitude set. I put both of the strips onto the same block before stamping which made creating the background super quick.  For the ticket strip I lined up the stamps so that the ends were touching and then embossed and cut them out.

For the second card I used a tree stencil template.  I applied Versamark ink all over the surface and then embossed with the opaque white WOW! powder. I also "distressed" the edges with my Versamark pad, dipped the edges into the powder and embossed again.  I finished off the card with some white ruffle ribbon, baker's twine and a sentiment flag that I stamped in kraft ink.

Supplies (Grateful):
WOW! Stamps: Gratitude set
WOW! Embossing Powders: WL01 - Opaque bright white
Ink: Versamark Ink (for embossing)
Papers: The Paper Company kraft cardstock, Georgia Pacific white cardstock
Accessories: Wood button, Prima flowers, pearl straight pins, Fiskars scalloped border punch

Supplies (Thank you trees):
WOW! Stamps: Gratitude set
WOW! Embossing Powders: WL01 - Opaque bright white
Ink:  Versamark ink (for embossing), Memento Desert Sand ink (sentiment)
Papers:  Bazzill kraft cardstock, Georgia Pacific white cardstock
Accessories:  Flax baker's twine (The Twinery), wood button, white ruffle trim, Crafter's Workshop tree template (Aspen Trees 6 x 6" template)

Hope you enjoyed today's projects.

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…

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…
