Thank you Gift Card

Hi Bloggers, Rachel here with my project for this months Challenge, 'Anything Goes - Thank you.'

I decided to make a gift card that holds tea lights, but you could replace these with a small present of your choice such as pencils/pens or chocolates.

I found the template for this on You Tube; there are quite a few variations of this card but I wanted one that sealed top and bottom so this is the version I chose.
I used the Gratitude Clear Stamp Set, the Funky Border Strips and Indigo Super Fine Embossing Powder, Little-Lou Purple Glitz and White Twinkle Embossing Glitter.

If you would like to know the dimensions for this project please read on......

  • Cut a piece of card 12" x 9" and lay it out with the 12" edges running top and bottom.
  • Score from one end at ½", 1¼", 2¾" and 3½" and fold - these are the folds that make the box.

  • From the last score line (3½") measure 5" and score again. This will form the card part.
  • Measure ¾" from top and bottom edge and cut the card away from the 3½" score line to the side as per the picture below: 
  • At this point also cut away the top and bottom corners and cut notches into the score lines so that you can fold and glue the box. (I've turned my card round as I want my box on the right).
  • You are now ready to stick and decorate your card (maybe cut out a window in the box top and back with acetate as I have done).
I hope these instructions make sense and you have fun creating something different!
Please keep popping back to see what other fab projects our Design Team have to show you.
Bye for now

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…
