Upcycled Felt Glasses Case

Hi All.

Chris here again with this month's "Fabric" theme.
For this month's theme Iv'e upcycled a hand-made Felt Glasses Case by adding some flowers made from the WoW silicone moulds and embossed leaves made from card.

Firstly, I folded a piece of cardstock in half and cut out one side of a leaf. When opened this made both sides of the leaf look the same. I then embossed the leaves with green embossing powder and whilst still wet, marked the leaf  viens with a ball point pen.  As the flowers won't stick very well to the felt, I then sewed them on at the base to the felt border and then stuck the moulded flowers onto the leaves with silicone glue. Two flowers were added to the bottom and one to the top of the large felt flower.  I really pressed hard to stick this top one down and waited ages for it to dry but eventually we got there.

To make the actual flowers I melted some pink embossing powder and Melt It powders in a Melt pot and poured the melted powders into the daisy flower moulds to set. I love these moulds as you can use the flowers etc on most of your crafting projects. Why not take a look around and see what you could upcycle by adding an embossed image or two.  Happy crafting.

Products used:
Melt Pot
Silicone mould Daisy
Melt It Powder
Pastel Pink
Earthtone Olive

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…
