Card with Ombre embossing on diecuts

It is Victoria on the blog today, with a card for our September Challenge -  the theme is "Anything Goes". Recently I have received my DT pack with the new products and wanted to play with them. New line of Colour Blend is made of an pearlescent base with a mixture of other colours and they complement each other beautifully.
I wanted to get ombre look for my die-cuts, so I inked a piece of white cardstock with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and poured some WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powder on top, than WL08R Colour Blend - Peppermint TeaWL06R Colour Blend - Mint MacaroonWL07R Colour Blend - Banana Split to the bottom, making a stripe of each colour and heat set with WOW! Heat Tool - Euro
Then I die cut a feather and border out of this ombre paper. 
Also I stamped on a white cardstock these adorable bubbles - Pop (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set - with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad and embossed with WL06R Colour Blend - Mint Macaroon. Oh, how I love this perfect mint colour!
Also I stamped some flowers from Hey Little Flower (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set with black pigment ink and covered them with WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake . The reason I used black ink is getting more contrasting outline for water-colouring the petals. I fussy cut the flowers and added them to composition.


  1. I love all the blues. This is really pretty.

  2. This is beautiful in blue Victoria and love the pretty flowers and all the dimension and texture. x

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…
