Tiffany Windowdecoration created with children

Hi everyone!

Have you seen our fab new them at our monthly challenge? It´s
Family Projects
So I deside to work with my 9 years old son for this project. It´s suitable for childrens (and adults) from about 4 years +
My son and I created a Tiffany windowdecoration. It looks like real Tiffany glas art but with out the danger of cuting  little fingers with sharp glas parts.


All what you need are WOW! Melt it , Glitter and Embossing Powders, some sticky foil, baking paper and the oven in your kitchen (heatguns are not suitabel for this project!!!)

If you want to know how this works just read more!

Well, it´s as easy as 1-2-3. Childrens can make most parts of this project by them self but please don´t leaf them alone with hot surfaces and the oven!

Take your Melting Powder and put some of it on a sheet of paking paper on a paking tray just as on the photo.
Put some of the powders and glitters on it. You can play with colours and designs.

Preheat your oven at about 150°C. After preheating put the baking tray with your creation into the oven. It will need some minutes befor the powders start to melt. Wait until all powders are melted and the surface is  flat and looks glosy.

Remove the baking tray from your oven and wait until everything has cooled down . Now you will see a result like on my photo. It looks like liquid but it is not!

It´s time for prepare your Tiffany glas by just crack and break small parts. You must not be afraid your childrens can´t cut there fingers as the powders don´t break with a sharp breakline. They can do this by them self.
Now draw a star on the baking paper you have used befor and stick the parts on it just like on the photo.
I have used simple PVA glue, that works perfectly.


Now you must add the sticky foil. This is important not only for looking good but also for more stability as the baking paper allone is to soft. At least you can add some more decoration ore ribbon for hang it on the window.

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…

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…

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…
