Clean and Simple technique with colorful results

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here again and this is our Art Deco month.
Art deco -  A decorative and architectural style of the period 1925-1940, characterised by geometric designs, bold colours, and the use of plastic and glass. 
This article  had been published in UK Craft Stamper August 2013 issue and this is the same article here for you.
So I will show you some great technique that can make a 10 minutes artistic card.I am totally not sure it is Art Deco, but it's as close to it as  I could craft and I really wanted to share this easy technique that was  print published by me in August 2013 issue of UK Craft Stamper magazine.
This is  my own fast stamping and embossing techniques and all you need are great huge background stamps , StazOn inks and good embossing powder. That's it. Not more then 10 minutes to make am artsy card. And as WOW! Embossing Powders have those great background stamps and sure have great embossing powders, that's all you need.
So here we go.
1. Stamp  a big stamp over cream cardstock with embossing ink. I used slightly coloured embossing ink , so you see it a bit coloured.  I used WOW!Embossing Powders Brocade and Flowers stamps on those cards. Heat emboss it with  Clear Gloss embossing powder and let it be cool.
2. Make 3 circle sizes template over a leftover cardstock with 3 circle punches . You can also use dies or any other circle cutting system. Then put the template over your card and wipe Blazing  Red,  Azure Blue and  Mustard Yellow Staz-On inks inside the circle. Three primary colours will do all possible rainbow colours  you see.
Trim the cardstock and make your card layers.
3. The sentiment were both heat embossed with Black Ebony embossing powder, also one is a chipboard title and the second is made of foam letters. I made one embossed layer over foam letters (was afraid of the extra heat) and 3 layers over the chipboard.
Make some white pen stitches and  your card are finished.

Brocade - Clear Stamp

Flowers - Clear Stamp

I think it's a really cool technique to use and WOW! Embossing Powders have  much more of those huge stamps you can use at once and to make more lovely 10 minutes artistic cards.

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…

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

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…
