Black & White Decadence

Hello, Sherrie here!!

Today I am going to share with you a beautiful and decadent wall hanging that I made of our little dog Max (and now I need to get busy making another of our larger dog Reba!)


My daughter actually took this picture for an assignment in her photography class a couple years ago and I just fell in love with it. She happened to be over at the house just taking random shots and managed to capture this keeper! It has taken me a couple years to figure out what I wanted to do with it but was waiting for the perfect idea to hit me.

Recently my DH and I have been going to a lot of auctions and I have started picking up a lot of old picture frames. Some are very plain and some are very fancy. For this project I choose a very plain wooden frame because I was going to just cover it up. I started by covering it with a couple of layers of black paint. I then, very carefully, using the WOW! Embossing Pen and embossed the inner edge with WOW! Embossing Powder in Black Ebony Regular. I also used this on the large letters.


I also used WOW! Embossing Powder in Black Ebony Ultra High and Bright White Ultra High to make the faux wax stamp seals. Aren't they just darling??



I just love how it all turned out with the different shades of white, black and grey. And for those wondering, yes that is really chicken wire and burlap!!

WOW! Products Used:
Black Ebony Regular
Black Ebony Ultra High
Bright White Ultra High
Melt-It
Embossing Pen

Until next time....
Sherrie!

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
