Thank you card and a lot of embossing

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here today and this time I am going to show you my new and very much embossed card.
For a long 4-5 month I was doing scrapbooking pages and altered projects for this  blog and this month was my turn to make a card. So I made one and then I decided to enter it to the web magazine and they  took it for the publication.Good news and bad news. As this card can't be posted here till August and I had to make another card for this post.
So here is the new card-summer colors, but in a kind of a muter way.
I very simple card made for WOW Embossing Powders blog post.


I used this Flowers Wow stamp and then heat embossed it with 4 summery embossing powders: Sour Lemon, Whirly Pop, Gummy Bear Green, Cotton Candy
My  tip here is to use a white pigment ink and not a Clear embossing one as I really want to see that the whole stamp will be shown. The second tip is  to put your cardstock on the top of your inked stamp and to use some roller  to get better impression on the inked image.
Then add 4 powders, one after another and you've done  with your stamped panel.
I made this card with the longer edge, border punched with MS punch, added some ribbons and stamped a sentiment , heat embossed again, on the same Kraft cardstock I used for the main panel. The colors of embossing powder are slightly different over the Kraft cardstock, but I think  I like this mute colors more.

The last technique I used here was an asymmetric ribbon pleating, hand stitched like a big zig zag from side to side and then pulled to this lovely pleated ribbon.
See you again nest time with another Wow projects.
Products used:
Stamps: Wow Embossing Powders Suzy West Flower background, With Gratitude set
Cardstock: American Crafts
Embossing Powders: Suzy West Cotton Candy, Sour Lemon, Gummy Bear Green, Whirly Pop
Ribbons: May Arts
Punch: Martha Stewart

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…
