Card for Dad

Hi again, Chris Saunders here once more to show you a Father's Day or masculine card that you can use for all occasions. 
Iv'e used a distress technique to create the background on this card so here goes with the instructions and products used....

Edge a 5" x 5" brown card with Earthtone Grape and Primary Mandarin Embossing powder using a clear embossing pad and heat set.  Scruch up a torn piece of red 4" x 4" paper and lay flat. Emboss the paper lightly using a clear embossing pad and add Pomegranate Embossing Powder.(The powder should just lie on the surface of the scrunched pieces only).  Heat set then add to the card.
Die Cut two swirls and cover with Gold Pearl Embossing Powder. Die cut 3 flowers out of beige paper 3 different sizes. Ink up the medium and smaller flower with cover with Apple Red Embossing Powder and Grape Embossing Powder and heat set.  Assemble these together with a brad.

Tear a tag out of purple paper, punch two holes in the top and add rafia. Stitch rafia to the side of the card to add interest. Stick the tag onto the card and add the swirls. Add the flower to the front bottom left of the card then add the word "Dad" with stickers to purple paper and attach to the tag. 

For the "Star" - In a Melting Pot, heat some Clear Gloss Embossing powder UH with Vanilla White and pour into a star cake/chocolate silicone mould. Leave to go cold and remove. Re-heat the top and drop in some Mandarin Embossing Powder and heat set for two seconds to seal the colour in. Add this to the base of the card with silicone glue.

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
