Happy Diwali Card

'Happy Diwali Card' by Neil Burley
It's that time of year where the dogs go nuts as it seems so many fireworks need test firing before either Diwali or Bonfire Night celebrations... I'm not entirely sure why, but my card for the stars and stripes theme this month ended up being inspired by this!

You will need:
WOW! Funky Border Strips clear stamp set
WOW! Deck The Halls clear stamp set
WOW! Embossing Glitters:
 - Magical Mauve
 - Red Glitz
 - Green Glitz
 - Blue Glitz
 - Princess Pink
 - Metallic Copper Sparkle
 - Blue Blast
 - Glamour Green
 - Metallic Brass Sparkle
 - Silver Bells
Clear embossing pad
Heat tool
Black card

For the fireworks, I used the dot 'stripe' from the Funky Border Strips and curved it on the acrylic block, varying the length but starting from the same point at the bottom. Ink it up each time with the clear embossing pad, stamp the image, then move the strip and repeat until all are printed. Now apply the Metallic Brass Sparkle and heat set.

For the stars, I took a sharp knife to the star on top of the Christmas tree on the Deck The Halls clear stamp set and cut it off to use separately. I stamped the stars one at a time on black cardstock, covered with one of the other glitters and heat set several at the same time. I then cut out each star and stuck it down with foam pads.

The 'Diwali' lettering was stamped and embossed with Silver Bells, and the 'Happy' printed using a Dymo machine. Both were mounted on the card using foam pads.

Enjoy the fireworks - and if you have pets, don't forget to keep them inside :)

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
