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.

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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
