Delicate Flutterings


Hello crafty friends, I hope you've all had a productive month and have been inspired  the gorgeous makes that the WOW DT have made so far. I'm a huge fan on the resist technique so I really enjoyed making my inspiration card this month.


I wanted a really delicate look to my card so I started with a small sentiment in the bottom right corner which I embossed with Primary Bark Powder. I then used the Mariposa stamp with Opaque Bright White powder to create the background design. I then rubbed distress ink gently over the design.


I sprinkled a little Iris powder over the background design then heated from underneath to add extra texture and colour. I then stamped and embossed three butterflies on squares of white card then rubbed a contrasting distress ink over the top.


After attaching the squares with foam pads I then added some small dots of PVA around the background then sprinkled Pumpkin Spice Sparkles on top before melting with a heat tool.



The result is a delicate design with a hint of a sparkle, I hope you like it!

Enjoy the challenge,


Here's all the lovely stuff Sarah used on her fab card !!

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
