Soapy clean....

Hi there,
It's Nikki here with my summer inspiration for you.....
Now when I think of summer I think of yellows and cool showers - well especially with the heatwave we have been having over the past few weeks.
So I decided to do something a little different this month.
This month I have been using a selection of the moulds that WOW! sell. You can find them here....

I wanted to make something that my guests over the summer could use.....
This is what I made...
A little something for my guests to use in the shower.....

I took a bar of soap (I used Pears as I just love the smell of it but you could use other kinds of soap - a tar soap melts nicely).... and I melted it in my melt pot - i cut little bits of the soap up and placed it into a little cake tin and sat that into the melt pot. This means it's easier to handle and clean up after!

While the soap was liquid I poured it into the moulds. After a minute or so I popped them out the moulds

Hey prestso .... mini soaps that are in the design of the moulds. I loved them!

I thought if these were put into a little gift bag, box or bag, then they would make great prezzies or stocking fillers.
Perfect for making your guests feel special....
I hope you are enjoying the sunshine too 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…

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…
