My small altered gift box

Hello, my dear crafting friends! Today I am going to show you my new recycled gift box that can be done in no time with some chipboards and a lot of WOW Embossing powders.

So first is was this clear box I got with some embellishments from my other DT, then I've seen that this box is just perfect to be altered. I wrapped it with 4-5 different washi tapes first. The second  step was to cover this bird cage and birds chipboards from Tando Creative. The coverage was  done with Frosty white Clearsnap ink and then the cage was heat embossed with White Regular Embossing powder and   bit of  Suzy West Earthtone Honey  powder was sprinkled over it for  an older look. The birds were first white inked and then heat embossed with a mix of  Opaque Pastel blue, Glitter Blue and  Bay Area Blue powders.  Prima fabric tape was misted and then I stamped this Just Because sentiment from Wow sentiments set (not much seen due the ribbon and a bad lighting, but believe me it's seen  proper in live)
Then I heat embossed this fabric tag with clear embossing ink and Pastel blue. My first time to emboss over fabric (also I did it on fabric) and I love the result.

Hope you like this small and lovely box. See you next month with more WOW inspiration!

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…
