Jen Matott here to CELEBRATE our national holiday with a patriotic card I made using Suzy's stamps and powders from WOW!  
I love the "Call Me stamp set with it's star/ text stamp.  This became the base for my card design.
 I absolutely love this text stamp!  I stamped it on white cardstock with VersaMark ink.  Then applied Cable Car Red first, Bright White next, and Bay Area Blue last.  I love the stripped effect it gave. 
 Then, I inked a doily and sprinkled the Platinum Sparkle over it.  I was thinking "fireworks" with this!  It has a silver shimmer that reminds me of the fireworks we just saw this weekend!
 I stamped the frame from "Simply Amazing" set on white cardstock next and used the Platinum Sparkle again.  Then I used a Celebrate sentiment stamp that I had and used Black Glint on it. 
The letters were chipboard and used the same powders as the text stamped image.  They are so bright on the white chipboard!
 Here's a close up of the doily, stamp and a chipboard star that I covered with powders.
 This came out so cute and I just might display it on my table for the day! We are going to enjoy the hot weather in the pool and take in a baseball game and fireworks later!  Happy Birthday America!!
What are you making for the 4th?

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:


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…
