"Jolly Holiday" Card - Snow and Ice theme

Hi again - Chris here again.  This "Hope that you have a Jolly Holiday" card was made using a plain image which I added WoW Embossing Powders to creating the look of a sparkly snow scene.  This card would be suitable for anyone going on a winter or ski-ing holiday.

To create the sparkly snow use the WoW Embossing Pen to draw along the roof tops exactly where you want the snow. Then sprinkle on Silver Hologram Sparkle powders  and heat with a WoW heat gun. 

I also stamped a "with love" sentiment using the Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set and embossed with Lagoon Blue powders taken from the Primary Range.

The snow at the base of the card was achieved by cutting out two layers of white cardstock, one larger than the other, shaped at the top to look like drifting snow. I then embossed the top of each piece of card with Earthtone Blueberry powders and then dragged my Versamark Embossing pad over the cardstock  and added Silver Hologram Sparkle powder. 

The brads were also embossed by tapping them onto the Versamark pad to make them sticky then dipping them into Earthtone Blueberry  powder. I then heated them and whilst still hot re-dipping them into Silver Hologram Sparkle powders then re-heating again to give a sparkly blue finish.

Products used for this card were:

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…
