Merry Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! It's Sandie here today with some more Christmas inspiration for you. If you haven't entered our Christmas challenge yet you have just a few more days to do so. You can find all of the details HERE. Remember, you MUST use heat embossing and/or some WOW products to qualify for the prize. 

My card features the new background stamp, Blizzard, and I've heat embossed with Sparkling Snow to create the background. It's so sparkly and shimmery :D  I adhered it to the card base with 3D foam and layered up a little bit of white lace on the front, adhering it with fabric glue. 

Next I used Green Glitz, Metallic Gold Sparkle and the Christmas Tree from the Deck the Halls clear stamp set. I had cut the tree once I had embossed it and adhered it with some 3D mounting foam. 

For the sentiment I used the Metallic Gold Sparkle. The stamp is from the Merry and Bright clear stamp set. This too is adhered with 3D foam so my card has loads of dimension to it. 

To finish off my card I added some white pearls in the top corners and on the sentiment strip.

WOW Products Used: 
Stamps - Merry and Bright, Deck the Halls, Blizzard

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I do hope you're inspired to be a little bit crafty

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…

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
