Garden Lantern - Summer and Sunshine Theme

"Summer and Sunshine" - Garden or indoor Lantern. 

Hi again, Chris here with this month's theme "Summer and Sunshine".

Iv'e created this Garden Lantern from an old jam jar. I embossed the jar with coloured powders - yellows, golds and greens - colours for summer - and added some flowers that I made using the new WoW silicone Flower Moulds.
You can use this Lantern jar with a T-light inside indoors or outside in the garden. If used in the garden, the T-light will be protected from the wind and the colours of the embossing powders will shine through making your garden lovely and colourful on those hot summer nights.

Make lots coloured jars to match the colours in your garden - they will surely get the neighbours talking.

These jars really easy to make - all I did was cover the jar with my clear embossing pad and add different colour powders one at a time all the way up the jar.

I then melted some Melt It powder in a Melt Pot then added some Flourescent Orange powder. Then poured the melted powders into the silicone moulds to set. I then stuck them on with silicone glue to the jar and added a wire holder at the top.

Jar indoors with a T-Light inside. 
Products used for this project were:

Silicone Flower mould Petal Medallion
Silicone Flower mould Pansy 
Melt It Embossing Powder
Flourescent Orange Regular 
Evergreen Regular
Gold Satin Pearl
Pastel Yellow
Gold Pearl


  1. I love this idea..... I can see me having to take my jars back out of the recycle box... x

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…
