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!

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…
