My poppies garden with Irit

Hello my dear crafty friends!
Irit is here and this is our Garden month .
I love flowers : to smell, to get and to scrap, not to grow them on my own. But growing over the page with WOW! EMBOSSING POWDERS is easy and so much fun! So here is my scrapbooking page full of  poppies and of powders all together.

I worked with white cardstock as my base and first I stamped A LOT of flowers with  Opaque Bright White Regular powder over Versamark embossing ink.

As the next step I used white textured paste of unknown origin (who really cares about the paste brand name if it works? ) and sprinkled a lot of Primary Sherbert, Opaque Primary Mandarin and Primary Apple Red powders. Heat embossing over wet texture paste gives us this totally gorgeous dimensional result we can see over my heat embossed poppies.
Some textured butterflies and dragonflies were also heat embossed over the wet paste, but now I used some delicate glitter powders such as Princess Pink and Amber Rose.

Then I used some mists all over the page and white heat embossed flowers resisted the misting and can be seen around the red poppies.
 All WOW! PRDUCTS used here are linked in the post.
Other products used are Tando mask, Unity stamps, American Crafts solid cardstock, LSG mists, EK Success punches , Creative Embellishments wooden shapes and some plastic mesh.
Now it's your turn! Play with us this month, use heat embossing or one of WOW! products and you can win too!

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…
