Mother's Day Delights

Hi!! It's Sandie here today with a little WOW! Embossing inspiration for you. This month our theme is Anything Goes and you can find all the details on entering our challenge over on THIS POST

I just LOVE making cards with coordinating treat boxes. They are so easy to do and they make such a wonderful gift. We've already had Mother's Day in Ireland the UK but it appears the rest of the world will be celebrating on May 12th. 

For the card I started with a pink base - sized at 105mm x 148mm. I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and the Vintage Wallpaper background stamp to create the bottom panel and I used an embossing folder for the design on the top panel. The butterfly is from the Simply Amazing clear stamp set and I've stamped it out with distress ink and heat embossed it with clear gloss powder before trimming it out with a scissors. The 'Happy Mother's Day' sentiment is from the Everyday Sentiments set

Again, I used Victorian Velvet distress ink and the Vintage Wallpaper stamp for the treat box. I used the tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers for the box, but I changed it up a little to suit my projects. For the front panel I used the cameo and frame from Simply Amazing and layered it on top of some cheesecloth and white lace. To finish it off I added some little pearls, and white ribbon to close the box. 

That's it from me for today! Don't forget to check out the March Anything Goes challenge for your chance to win 12 embossing powders in a handy carry case!

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…

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…
