Father's Day Card with stencil embossing

Hiya all, it's Sarah here and I've created a Father's Day card using the Wow Earthtone powders that I wanted to share with you all.

Here are brief instructions on how to make (I used a blank pre-folded Square Card with a linen effect but and blank white card would work well with these colours):

Using clear ink, stamp the squares pattern from the Funky Border Stamp Set and sprinkle over Wow Blueberry Embossing Powder and set using a heat gun.

Stick 5mm double sided tape either side of the stamped squares and trim to size. Sprinkle with Wow Mint Embossing Powder and heat set with a heat gun.

Using clear ink, stamp the 'Happy Father's Day' message from the Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set and sprinkle over Wow Blueberry Embossing Powder and set using a heat gun.

I printed out 'DAD' in a bold font and cut around the letters, using a scalpel to cut out the middle parts of each letter. Then I stuck these letters to a square piece of card 6cm x 6cm using a temporary adhesive. This then became a stencil effect so I could use my ink pad to ink over the whole area and heat emboss using Wow Pepper Embossing Powder then carefully (using a scalpel), remove the stencil letters to reveal the card underneath. I used a pearl effect card so that the matt embossing powder really makes the letters stand out.

To add a little more sparkle, I added some fabulous spearmint green colour mix star sequins using glue dots. (They are from Josy Rose Sequin Collection).

If you have the patience for cutting out, here's an option with an alternate sentiment:

If you right click on the below images you should be able to save them to your computer so that you can print them out to cut around the letters. If you print them onto thin card, the stencils are usually sturdy enough to use a few times.

Here's a list of the Wow products that I used:
Funky Border Stamp Set
Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set
Wow Blueberry Embossing Powder
Wow Mint Embossing Powder
Wow Pepper Embossing Powder

Pop over to the Wow Embossing Powder website for other fabulous colours from the Earthtone range... Honey is a lovely rich yellow which reminds me of all this fabulous weather that we have at the moment. I might have to use that colour in a project that I create today... Happy Embossing!

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…

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…
