WOW! Sunshine.....

Hi Folks, well this soon rolls round! Here I am again with my offering for this month's theme Summer & Sunshine.
As soon as I saw this theme I knew that I wanted to create a simple, sunny canvas using the WOW! Embossing Powders.

I drew the sun on a canvas that I had covered with a neutral acrylic paint and then proceeded to colour it in using a WOW!Embossing Pen. I used Primary Lemon E/P for the rays edged with Opaque  Primary Mandarin and then built up my sun using the same colours. I added quite a few layers to the sun as I wanted some texture, (I think you can just see that in the picture below).

Next I covered the whole canvas in Versamark Ink and embossed the complete piece with Pearlescent Orange E/P to tone down the vibrancy and give a lovely shine to the whole canvas. The wooden embellishment was coloured with Promarkers and then embossed in Clear E/P. I stamped out the wording, cut it out and added it to finish.

I hope this sunny canvas makes you think of hot days - just like we are having at the moment :-)

Don't forget to join in our Challenge for your chance to win a selection of WOW! Embossing Powders and keep popping by to see what else our DT have been up to.

Bye for now

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…
