Creating "Faux Glass" with Embossing Powder

Hi! It's Patti and I'm sharing a technique with you today that looks like old cracked glass!! It's really easy to do. I made this card with a sticker, but you can use vintage photos, old cards or anything to get the look!

All you need is your image and Wow Embossing Powder Clear Regular powder. Here is my finished card.


I started out by choosing some images, then decided which one I wanted to use.

I chose a large rose sticker, then just placed it on ivory cardstock. You don't want white, it looks too new!

Then, all you do is emboss three or four layers of the regular clear powder, letting cool between each layer. Then once finished, you just carefully bend and "crack" the image to get the desired look that you want!!! Don't bend too hard or it will crack too much and pieces will come off!!! But if you play around, it's really cool to do!!! I hope you give it a try!


Thank you so much for stopping by today! We really appreciate it, don't forget to check back to see what else the Design Team has to share with you!!!!!

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…
