Powder Pixies are here to inspire you!

Hi there! It's Tricia Wilson and the "Powder Pixies" back for yet another group post! We have two layouts, one canvas and a card to share with you today. So, get ready for some major cuteness and read on. ;)

Design team member Jenifer Cowles created this absolutely adorable 6x6 canvas about her little one.  She didn't have any canvases on hand so she made one using some scraps of wood. For the canvas she repurposed a pair of his old denim overalls. How clever and resourceful is that?!  She used the Brocade and the Gratitude stamp set along with  WOW Cable Car Red Embossing powders.
Designer Tanisha Long created this darling layout "Pocket Full of Sunshine" about her two boys. She added a very nice raised texture to her journaling by writing it with an embossing pen and then using WOW's Bright Opaque White embossing powder to highlight and emphasize it. On this layout she used four different embossing powders: WOW Bright Opaque White; WOW Clear Gloss Ultra High; Suzy West California Sunshine; Suzy West Sierra Sunrise Embossing Glitter.

For her group project designer Jamie Cripps created a card using two stamp sets. She used the"Brocade" stamp and created her own patterned paper look then used the "It's a Bird" stamps to add the images and sentiment to her card and WOW Angel Wings to add a little sparkle. This adorable card to be sent to just about anyone who is on your mind to let them know you are thinking about them.

For my project I created a layout title "Us 3 girls" using a mixture of WOW Silver regular and Clear Regular powder and two stamp sets: Love Beyond Measure and Simply Amazing. I mixed the two powders together to give a more subtle shimmer to my layout and I just love the results!
In the image below I embossed a section of pink patterned paper using a mixture of two powders, then used two different punches to create the butterflies. The frame in the photo below and the double hearts on the tag in the last image were stamped, embossed, hand cut out, then added to the layout. I also embossed the edges of my doilies for a bit of added shimmer and sparkle.
I also used an embossing pen and filled in the die cut "LOVE" on the tag with the same combination of powders. I love the delicate softness that it added.

Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by the blog today and taking a look at the projects we've created for you. I hope you have been inspired to go forth and CREATE!

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…

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…
