Thank You in Purple!!!

Hi, I hope everyone is making it through this middle of the week Wednesday!!! I have a card to share with you today and I love purple, so I decided to focus on it with the powders and trims! I've used Suzy's "Gratitude" stamp set and a couple of purple powders.


First, I found some random chipboard blooms and embossed them with the Suzy West Berrylicious and WOW Earthtone Grape. Then I stamped the sentiment from the "Gratitude" stamp set and embossed with the WOW Opaque Bright White. I did the same thing with the little ribbon chippie accent.

For the title I just embossed with the Earthtone Grape and chose the "thank you" from the stamp set. I used pop dots for some dimension.

I added some beautiful purple ribbon and trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I just love the sheer butterfly trim. I added a little Baker's twine too!

These stamps are so versatile, I find myself using them all the time, they're so easy when you need a quick card and the embossing dresses them up a lot! Make sure to check back tomorrow to see what else we have to share with you!

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
