Family Star

Hello and happy Friday everyone!!

So in continuing with this months Stars and Stripes theme I have created a piece that really could be used in a couple different ways. I know typically, especially here in the U.S., whenever we hear Stars and Stripes our thoughts automatically go to 4th of July. But i wanted to do something a little different. So instead I created this piece that can be a wall hanging or an ornament.
I took this picture last Christmas and wanted to do something special with it for everyone. So I thought these would make great little pieces to give to everyone.

I started with a chipboard star album that I took apart. There were five stars pages in the album which worked out perfect. I then covered them with Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap that I had crinkled up. Next I painted over the tissue wrap with some very watered down white paint, because i still wanted the words on the tissue wrap to show thru slightly. I then sprayed it with Perfect Pearls Mist Blue Patina. After that all dried I then used my Versamark pad and inked it all up and covered it with WOW! Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder.
Next I used the two different dot stamps from the WOW! Funky Boarder Strips Stamp Set along with StazOn Jet Black ink and stamped dots onto the star.
I can't wait to give these out to everyone next time we get together. I hope they like them as much as I do!!

Until next time...have fun crafting and creating with your WOW! products.

Warmly,
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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

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 :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
