Just to say...miss you

Hi, it's Amy here again with 2 cards created using the powders of the month - the 'earthtones'. These are really gorgeous colours and as you can see from all the many different projects posted so far this month they are really versatile too. Here is what I created...

Just to say...


For this card I stamped the 'Fat Sparrows', (a Crafty notions Karantha stamp) 3 times, and embossed the required sections of each image with a different earthtone colour. I used honey for the sparrows, pomegranate for the background squares and pepper for the soil. I cut out each section of the image and mounted them on the white card using foam pads to give dimension. I then backed this with orange card, added red ribbon, stamped the 'Just to Say' sentiment from the 'Everyday Sentiments' WOW stamp set and embossed with pomegranate.  

Miss you


I used the Claudine Hellmuth 'Dwelling' foam stamp set for this card. I inked the foam stamp with versamark, stamped onto white card,, carefully poured 3 different earthtone colours on to the different sections (working quickly apply one colour and tap off the excess powder before moving on to the next colour), and heat embossed it. The colours I used were pomegranate, grape and olive. I then mounted the stamped piece onto orange card, stamped the 'miss you' sentiment, (again from the 'Everyday Sentiments' WOW stamp set), and embossed with grape, mounted this onto orange card again and stuck both pieces onto a green background paper.  

I think these also meet the brief of cards for men and could be used for a number of different occasions... what do you think?

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…

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…
