Something different

Hi there! Birgit here today with something different.
Another example showing that embossing powders are not only a wonderful product for scrapbookers and card makers but also can perfectly be used in all kinds of mixed media projects

I wanted to try something new, a different style. When I started this project I had no idea where it would go, I had no picture in mind. I just began somewhere and was really surprised by the outcome :)

I cut out a shape using a Spellbinders die and used the negative as a template for my "flowers".
I put the template on the basswood canvas (8x16"), filled the open space with Versamark, removed the template and added several colors of embossing powders next to each other. Just tap off each color in between 2 colors and you can go on adding color until all the Versamark is covered and heat it all at once.

After embossing the base colors I put the mask back on top and added stamps (Funky Border Strips) and Punchanella dots and stars to the schapes and embossed them too with black and white embossing powder. 

When all the shapes where done I sprayed the background with Tattered Angels glimmer mist and created some texture in the background using punchanella and green Stazon ink. I embossed some strips of paper with clear embossing powder and used them as stems.

Finally I embossed some old chipboard letters and added them to the canvas.
Very different them my normal style but I was really happy with how it turned out :)

Colors used: Opaque Bright White, Tea Garden Green, Presidio Purple, Cotton Candy, Bay Ara Blue, Primary Ebony Black, Earthtone Paprika, Earthtone Honey,Earthtone Olive and Clear Gloss Regular.

Thank you for stopping by and have a lovely day!

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…

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…
