Spooky Halloween Treat Bag

Good morning everyone!! It's Sandie here and after a hectic summer I am back with a cute SCARY project that I want to share with you. 

We all love die cuts and the general rule is to cut them out and stick them down onto our projects. They add just that little extra to your creations - however, heat embossing your die cuts brings them into a whole 'nother world. There are so many options from just one layer embossing to embossing/stamping to the cracked glass effect. 

Each element of my 'scene' has been heat embossed.... 


A side view of the treat bag. You can add goodies inside... or maybe even ghastlies ;) 

I used Black Glint on the house to make it sparkle


The 'moon' has been heat embossed 3 times with Mandarin and then stamped on using memento black ink and Funky border Strips clear stamps. For the bat I used ultra high black. 


A little close up of the shimmery house.... 


For the tree I used Clear Semi Dull. I didn't want it glossy, trees aren't shiny. 


This treat bag was so much fun to create and all you need to do is.. 

Take one piece of 4"x 12" card scored at 5.25" on either side and folded on each of the scorelines, this makes up the base/outside. For the box inside you need a 4" x 6" piece of card and score it at 1.25" on all 4 sides. Once you have the box assembled, adhere it to the centre of the base. Decorate to taste :)

WOW! products used:

Powders:

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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
You can check out a bit about them HERE along with our other fabulous DT members.
