Let it snow, let is snow, let it snow!

Hello to you all,

It's Sarah here and I thought I would share with you a couple of cards that I made and sent out to family and friends at Christmas...

On this card, I wanted the snowflake to be suspended so it would hang and create movement.
I started by creating the card background that the snowflake would hang in front of. I used a square card and measured 3 cm from each edge of the front of the card and then cut this square section out.

I then typed different Christmas sentiments and selected different sentiments to be in different fonts. I selected the font colour to be grey (30% black) and then printed this onto transparency paper. I printed a complete A4 page so that I could make two cards from the one sheet of transparency paper. I cut two squares 12 cm x 12 cm from this printed transparency and then mounted one square onto the middle of the card using 3mm foam squares.

The foam squares used to mount the transparency were slightly visible through the transparent paper which I didn't like so I created 4 silver circles to hide them! Using a standard hole punch, I punched 4 circles from silver card and attached these circles using glue dots to cover the unsightly foam pads.

Next I made the snowflake. I digitally cut a snowflake from thin card and then inked this up with Versamark and then covered with Metallic Silver Embossing Powder and heat set this. As I was making up quite a few of this design (30 cards in total), I created the snowflakes in batches and heat set them in an oven at about 140 degree's for a couple of minutes. To suspend the snowflake, I cut a thin strip (3mm wide) of acetate and attached this to the inside front of the card and then folded it to hang infront of the card and attached the silver glitter snowflake to the front. I finished the card by adding a white insert to the inside of the card.

The second card was made using the Blizzard Stamp and Blueberry Embossing Powder and finished with a strip of navy blue satin ribbon. The stamp fits perfectly onto a square card 144mm x 144mm.

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.

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…
