Fairy Friends

Hello, everyone! Anne with 6 Girls and a Smoking Gun here with a card to share with you all. This month, our DT leader, Jen Deal, challenged us to use fabric (which she was sweet enough to provide to us) on our projects. This was indeed a challenge for me as I had never used anything more than bits of ribbon and lace in the way of fabrics on my cards.

I already had this adorable fairy digi colored and was waiting for the right opportunity to put it on a card when the fabric swatches arrived in my mailbox and there, among those bits and scraps was this cute orange, gold and green floral stripe piece, the gold batik strip and the bright orange lace! All of it coordinated perfectly with the brightly capped mushrooms and I knew immediately what I would do.

If you enlarge the photos, you'll see that the fairy is talking to a little worm coming out of his hole. I apologize but I didn't notice when I snapped the pictures that he's a little hard to see because the leafy vine is almost covering him. He's much easier to see in person. The WOW Embossing Powders I used on this card were Metalline Green and Primary Ebony. Thanks for stopping in today! Be sure to visit my personal blog and check back here on Saturday to see our team post. We'll have some cool and unique things to inspire you then.


  1. Love the little fairy! Great card :o)

  2. What a cute card, and I love the fairy, but especially the cute little worm!!! THe winds turned out gorgeous!!!

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:


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…
