With Love On Valentines Day...

Hi, it's Sarah here from Sarah Rhodes Designs with a couple of Valentines Card Designs for you on the theme of Love...


 The first project uses one of my favourite stamp sets from the Wow Embossing Powder stamp range: Is It A Bird Stamp Set

I have used the small heart stamp and repeated the stamp to create a lovely heart pattern (TIP: I inked and embossed one line of hearts at a time so that the ink didn't dry out before adding the embossing powder!) The gorgeous deep pink colour that I used to heat emboss the hearts is Wow Tickled Pink Embossing Powder

To finish the card, I looped a strip of pretty striped ribbon and attached a tag that I'd printed and cut out.

Here is a similar design but uses a different Wow stamp for the 'With Love' sentiment and a range of pink coloured embossing powder.


I have used the small heart stamp from Wow! Is It A Bird Stamp Set and repeated the stamp to create a lovely heart pattern (TIP: I inked and embossed one line of hearts at a time so that the ink didn't dry out before adding the embossing powder!) There are 4 pink colours used with two lines of hearts in each colour. The gorgeous graduating pink colours are (from top to bottom):

Wow! Pastel Pink Embossing Powder
Wow! Magenta Embossing Powder
Wow! Tickled Pink Embossing Powder
Wow! Cardinal Red Embossing Powder

I stamped extra hearts onto matching card and punched these out with a circular punch. Add these using 2/3mm foam pads to create depth to the background pattern. Stamp 'With Love' sentiment from the Wow! Everyday Sentiments Stamp Set and cut around the sentiment and add this to the card using 2mm foam pads.

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…
