Guest Design Team Post: Emma Godfrey (Giveaway Closed!)

Hi everyone,

It’s Emma Godfrey here with a stylish (well I think so!) gift idea.

I’ve created a piece of art to fit inside an IKEA frame – perfect for a personalised present. 

I did this by first making a simple mixed media background with ink stenciled through sequin waste and layering paints using a brayer. I then stamped WOW French Music Clear Stamp Set with a grey ink pad, and one of the triangles from WOW Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) Clear Stamp Set with a blue ink pad.

I embossed the WOW Hexagons Clear Stamp Set with WOW Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder, the WOW Flights Of Fancy Clear Stamp Set with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and the little dots from WOW Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) Clear Stamp Set with WOW Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powder. I also sprinkled some WOW Platinum and Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powders randomly onto the background (and heated them from underneath so that they didn’t blow away). I added some white paint dots to lighten the background up.

I die-cut the word and leaves from cardstock that was covered with a double sided sticky sheet. After peeling the sticky sheet away, I covered the leaves and letters with WOW Celebration Sparkles Glitter. I positioned everything in the frame and then stuck it all together.

I hope you like the project. See you soon!

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
