Embossing on Glass

Hi all and thanks for stopping by today!
Today I am going to share with you a super easy tutorial on embossing on glass. I thought this would be something different for a change and hope you all enjoy it.
So I had this glass pumpkin candy dish that I picked up super cheap last year after Halloween. And I really wanted to do something to dress it up. I have never tried embossing on glass before so I thought I would give it a try. For now all I have done is decorate the lid and that is what I am going to share with you today.
 So to start with I took my WOW! Embossing Pen and inked the stem up really good. I then poured Metalline Green all over it. One thing I found out during this process is that it takes awhile for the powder to heat up and melt on the glass. So be patient when you are using your heat gun to get the powder completely melted.

 Next I took my WOW! Embossing Pen and drew really thick lines down the groves of the lid and then sprinkled them with Black Glint. I used a paint brush to brush off any extra powder that I didn't want on the lid before I heated up the powder.
 I then added a little burlap, some wire that I coiled up, and a Tim Holtz embellishment to finish it out. Now its ready to fill with candy come October!!

Well, I hope you all enjoyed my post today and be sure to come back to tomorrow to see what Irit has to share. Until next time!!

Warmly,
Sherrie!!

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
