Embossing chipboard to make fancy cards

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Irit is here and this time I want to show you a couple of cards I made with Wow Embossing Powders and Wow stamps.This is my last post on USA team and I am moving to WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS UK/GLOBAL team from January, also  those are still pretty much same gorgeous products I designed with for a year.
The first card is this very lovely Bee Happy card.
I used Prima papers, a piece of Honeycomb A2Z Scraplets chipboard and Wow stamp HAPPY from the  Everyday Sentiments set.
The chipboard piece was inked with clear embossing  ink and then heat embossed twice with  Soar Lemon Yellow embossing powder. The Happy word was a part of Happy Birthday sentiment, but I used this plastic Bee for a part of my Bee Happy sentiment after all. I  Used the same Yellow powder for the word Happy.







My second card is this shabby, but yet clean and simple card, made with Brocade background stamp . I used light blue cardstock and white ink to stamp on it, and them heat embossed it with  Opaque Bright White embossing powder. Then I made a circle punched window and stamped the Cameo image from Simply Amazing stamp set  using  Bay Day Area Blue powder this time. Finally I added the stamped sentiment from the same set



 See you all around and thanks to SUZY WEST for a wonderful year together! See you on UK/Global blog  posts!

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…

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…

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…
