Canvas Fun

I have had so much fun making this canvas.  I was very lucky to receive a melting pot from my amazing boss Elena for Christmas  :-)  I have not stopped playing with it.    So for this project I have made a canvas using the WOW molds and Embossing powder.

This months theme is Fabric,  I added a panel of burlap and  gesso to the canvas.  I used distress paint to give the back ground some colour.  Once it was dried I added embellishments . Which I made with embossing powders :-)

For this flower I made with Black Ultra High Embossing Powder and added some Blue Perfect pearls to it.

I made the branches using the Ultra High Gold Embossing Powder and  a cake mold along with the leaves.  For the leaves I used a mixture of Green Wow Embossing Powders.

To attach them to my canvas I have used really tackie glue,  you could used a heat gun too.

When I had finished with a colour in the melting pot I tipped it out onto a non stick, heat resistant craft mat.  Sometimes it came out in drops (orange) which made the perfect dew drops.  If you shake the pot around a bit when it comes out you can get a string effect (green)

I used these to add texture to my project.

For this last photo you can see some of the detail the embossing powder creates when pouring into a larger mold.  I love this as it gives the branches a real life look.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project, feel free to leave a comment.  I love to read what you think.  Remember each month we have a challenge and you have a great chance to win some embossing powders.  So if you have a project or time to make a project that uses embossing powder and fabric please link it up so we can all admire it.  Thanks for popping by.

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…

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…
