The Perfect Pair

Hello, its Donna here today to share a layout I created for a great friend.  This layout is very clean for me but I love everything about it.  I hope you do to .

I have used WOW Embossing stamps and embossing powders as my main embellishments for this layout.  

I have used the boarder stamp to create a patterned paper back ground and a strip stamp out of the Gratitude stamp set  to add an extra layer of wee hearts.  I embossed the background and those cute little hearts in Primary Ebony.

Do you have lots of sheets of alphas that are not the right colour, easy solution to this is to emboss them to a colour that suits your project.  My theme was white, black and pink and I really liked the idea of just a few of the letters being pink.

Adding small touches is a key to a good layout,  I love to add that little bit of extra like the wee pink squares in my hand drawn boarder, or the wee pink love heart that I created by using the WOW Embossing pen  and the yummy  Fluorescent Pink. 

I hope you dig out your embossing powders and have a play, remember its coming to the end of the month but you still have time to enter this months challenge,  click here for full details HERE.
That's all from me for now, take care and happy scrappin  xox     Donna

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…
