Summer Bunting - How To Make Personalised Bunting Tutorial

Hi everyone, it's Sarah here with a project that I have made for this months theme of Summer.

I had been invited to afternoon tea to celebrate my friends 30th birthday so I decided to create a summery themed card for her that would fit with our afternoon of tea, sandwiches and cake and what better way than to say Happy Birthday than with bunting!





I started by creating the mini flags. I printed them and cut them out but you could use patterned paper and little alphabet stamps to create the wording that you require.



Next I used a hand punch to create little holes in the corner of the flags to thread the ribbon through




I covered each little flag with Clear Ultra High Wow Embossing Powder and placed on a baking tray and heat embossed these in an oven on a low to medium temperature. I repeated this process three times to get a nice thick coating.



Using 3mm wide white ribbon, I threaded the flags onto the ribbon one at a time.



Finally, I positioned the 3 strips of bunting on the card and attached with glue dots using little pearl white sequins to hide the glue dots.



I also created a second set and attached to pink straws so these could be used on her birthday cake... I will say the the restaurant put the bunting a little too near the candles for my liking so if you do attempt this, make sure the candles are set away from the bunting to prevent any fire hazards!

The final thing to say is Happy Birthday Emily!



I hope that you like this project. Why not join in this months Wow challenge of Summer to be in with a chance of winning 6 embossing powders of your choice!

Happy Crafting :D

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:



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…

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)
