Tricia and The Powder Pixies are back!

Hi there, it's Tricia and the Powder Pixies! We are back with an amazing sampling of project to help get your creative juices flowing. To begin with, here is a wonderful layout created by Iris Uy using WOW ultra high gold and platinum embossing powders. See how she added embossed circles and gears to play up and emphasize the masculine feel of her layout?

Jenifer Cowles' project this month was a lovely layout featuring the: "Call Me" and the "It's a bird" stamp sets and Earthtone and Pepper embossing powders. She created her own patterned paper look  by using a background stamp behind her photo?

Design team member Jamie Cripps created a  fantastic 3 dimensional chandelier using Black Glint Embossing Glitter on a die cut Chandelier by Samantha Walker for Silhouette America. Below she has even been kind enough to share a tutorial with us as well! Take a look at the detailed instructions below for an inside look to her creative process.

Designer Tanisha Long created this stunning layout using the WOW Gratitude and Call Me Stamp Sets.
She also used Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter, Black Glint Embossing Glitter and Skyline Grey Puff powder to achieve her look. Look how the Glitters sparkle and add a perfect touch of sparkle to her design.
And finally for my project. For this layout I used both Clear and Silver embossing powders and the Gratitude stamp set. I embossed a corner of my paper with the clear embossing powder for added shine, then punched out all of the hearts on the layout. The jar and the line of hearts below the picture are embossed with the silver powder.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you have enjoyed the projects we have shared with you. Continue to come back daily for new projects and a constant stream of inspiration.

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…

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…
