A Little Bit of Vintage...

Good Morning!  It's Jamie back with you today sharing what has become one of my favorite cards.!  Now, before I begin I should tell you that I am not so great with vintage'y things.  I have tried and failed ...miserably...many, many times! :)

 When I received the Vintage 1928 Stamp Set from WOW Embossing Powders, I just loved the images and knew I would have to try again! 

Just have a look...aren't they amazing!? 

I used the chair, the roses (the one on the top left with the box), and the key from the Vintage 1928 set and then the Thank You sentiment from the Gratitude set...and I kept it simple.

I started off by adding the sentiment to the front of the card in black ink

 and then added the chair above it, centering.

I stamped the chair again on another piece of cardstock with Embossing Ink and then covered it with Angel Wings Embossing Glitter!

I removed the excess glitter onto a piece of scrap paper and poured it back into the original jar for storage.

Once you have the powder removed, heat set the glitter.

Then fussy cut the chair.

 I used the Spun Sugar Distress Marker to add a bit of color to the chair pad and then used foam adhesive squares to adhere the chair over the stamped image on the front of the card.  This gives it a bit of a shadow effect.

Once I had my chair in place, I punched a decorative border in black cardstock and placed it behind the chair and then used the rose image around the edges of the card.  

I stamped the key with embossing ink and covered it with the Metallic Platinum Sparkle and heat set it.  I fussy cut the key and added it to my bow with Blossom twine from The Twinery.

It isn't all that vintage'y...but I really like the way it turned out and it gives me hop to try it all again soon!

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…

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

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…
