Glitter Girls are at it again! :)

Hi Girls! 
 So today on the blog we have Team Glitter Girls up on the blog!
 The projects they made will knock your sox off, so grab a cool drink and put your feet up!
 
First up we have Jamie Cripps with some spooky goodness to share!
  She included a tutorial so take a peek at her genius!
 
 
Tutorial Steps:
  1. Using label paper, cut a circle that fits inside the Bat Moon Silhouette cut. Peel off the label paper and cover the sticky side of the paper in Sierra Sunrise Embossing Glitter.
  2. Remove excess embossing powder and then heat set with an embossing gun.
  3. Your circle should look like this!
  4. Cut label tape to cover the letters from the Washi Tape Silhouette cuts. Remove the paper and adhere the sticky side to the back of the Washi Tape cuts.
  5. Cover with Presidio Purple Embossing powder then remove excess powder.
  6. Your letters should look like this.
  7. Before heat setting, cover the letters with the Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter.
  8. Remove excess powder and the heat set with an embossing gun.
That is adorable, and I love how it looks behind all the bats!

Next up we have Jenifer Cowles! 
She created a very colorful layout! 
 She used some stamps from the WOW flower set to make a banner....so pretty!
 
 

Jenifer used a bunch of colors on it Bubble Gum, Sour Lemon, Gummy Bear Green, Berrylicious, Pastel Pink, Cable Car Red, Bay Area Blue, Azure, Tea Garden Green, Presidio Purple and California Sunshine.
 
  What a cute layout, and cute kiddos too!  Her journaling says " You will always be my treasure at the end of my rainbow". That is so true!
 
Now we have a stunner from
 Jen Matott! 


Holy nuts...this is cute, and so very original!
Here is what Jen had to say about her project!
 
 
"I found this little metal lantern at my local Salvation Army store.  I snatched
it up for a mere $1.00!  When I got it home, I knew that I wanted to change it
from the dingy brass coloring to something WOW!  So, I used my VersaMark reinker
and a sponge dauber to apply the ink to the metal and then added Cotton Candy
powder to it.  It was time consuming to make sure it was covered on the outside
completely but the results were amazing!  I added Prima flowers, bling, lace,
and a butterfly along with a gorgeous fuchsia ribbon that I got on a bag from a
store that I shopped at recently.  This pretty lantern adorns my dining room
table with a battery operated tea light inside!  It's a fun altered project that
upcycled something run down and made it into a pretty home decor piece! I love
that the powders adhere perfectly to metal and other materials and look so
amazing with a slight sheen to them.  Why don't you go to your local thrift
store and see what you can find to alter using WOW Embossing powders?"
Supplies:
Cotton Candy WOW Embossing powder
VersaMark ink
Prima flowers, bling, lace, and butterfly
ribbon
 
Jen always comes up with such creative projects, and I think we need a picture of it with the little tea light glowing on the table! 
CUTE!
 
Now lets take a peek at this beautiful canvas that Tanisha created.  
Tanisha used:
WOW Embossing Glitter - Black Glint
WOW Embossing Powder - Opaque Bright White
Call Me Stamp Set
 
The canvas has a really good quote on it.
"Live as if you'll die tomorrow, Dream as if you'll live forever"
So pretty, and I love all the butterflies.

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…

I got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
