2-way calling - Telephone Box Stamp

The well known icon of the telephone kiosk (aka telephone box) is so recognizable even if dressed two ways. There's the traditional "currant red" of the UK standard boxes and the blue of dr Who's Tardis.

For my monthly project, I used the telephone box stamp from one of Wow Embossing Powder's first stamp sets in a card and in a tag.

The Card
I stamped the telephone box in Memento black ink then used water color paints for the background. I used my heat tool to quickly dry and set the water colors.

I masked the telephone box and sprayed white acrylic paint with a paint brush to dot stars on the background. Then, I stamped the entire face of the card with Versamark ink and heat set on top Wow's clear hologram sparkle embossing glitter. The effect is out of this world.

Can you see the hologram shimmer? 

The Tag
This little tag will look great on a Union Jack themed gift basket I am planning.

I started with the red telephone box stamped on the tag. I masked it then used Memento's Gray Flannel (seemed so appropriate) to fill in the gaps on the tag with more stamping of the box.

The overlay on this tag was done with 1 Layer of Wow's clear ultra high embossing powder.

With a final touch of red ribbon and string, the tag was complete.

With similar embossing techniques and the same stamp, here are two different looks for you!

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…
