Stars and Strip Challenge Time

Hello all, its my time to share what I have been up to with the wonderful WoW Embossing Powders and Foils.  The challenge is to use stars and stripes in your challenge.  I had this idea and I love it.

Don't you love the grungy look,  I love how this all came together with the layers

I made my stars using some left over patterned paper, I used a stencil and drew my star shapes, cut them out and then I got my WOW embossing pen and went around the edges.  I then sprinkled special edition embossing glitter Sahara and heat embossed.

Do you have alpha font that's the wrong colour for your project,  Try embossing them, its easy as and you get the perfect colour for your project.  Here I have used  a mixture of Earthtone Nutmeg and Earthtone Pepper.

Alex is five in this pic so I added a five to the side.

Here I have added a layer to my layout by adding Copper Fab Foil, and a splash of Red  to.

I have used a star behind a tear for more interest.

WOW products used:
Earthtone pepper regular
Earthtone Nugmeg regular
Fab foil Copper
Fab Foil Red

Well that's my share today,  I hope you have enjoyed.  There is still time to join in on our challenge, I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Until next time happy scrappin every one xox Donna

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…
