Sparkle & Resist Technique


Hello paper crafting peeps and welcome to today's blog post where I will be showing the resist technique. 


For the background I have used these fabulous glitter collection Velvet, Fairy Tale & Emerald City. These glitter collections literally takes your breath away when you sprinkle it on for the first time, it is a perfect amount of embossing powder and glitter combination.


Step 1: Heat emboss the 'Pop' background with the glitter collection embossing powders. I have used a rectangle stitched die to cut out the 3 panels to mount on various cardstock bases. I have used 2 x side folding and 1 x  top folding card bases.

Step 2: Each sentiment has been heat embossed with Bright White Opaque regular embossing powder on MFT stitched arch dies on white cardstock. 





Step 3: With various inks such as dye inks from Lawn Fawn & Simon Says Stamp and a Ranger Distress Oxide Ink I have ink blended with blending tool on each diecut. 


Step 4 : With a tissue I have gently wiped excess ink on the embossing leaving the sentiment even brighter to stand out on the inked cardstock. This reveals the sentiment to leaving an awe factor to the resist technique.


 Step 5: Each sentiment has been foam mounted and I have embellished with an array of sequins, wood veneers & droplets.

    1. Thanks for your kind comment Pat... I still remember how this stamp came about, I was travelling with the boss to the States and he had the laptop out that was touch screen, and I pressed my finger a bit hard into it and it made a circle, so I started pressing it all over, much to his dismay :) :) and the idea of 'Pop' was born !!!

  4. Oh, thought maybe you were going to do the resist technique with the glittery embossing powders. Nearly tried this technique with some tinsel embossing powders I have but thought maybe the ink wouldn't wipe off due to the texture. Looks like I will have to experiment myself, just so I know!! Those glittery ones look great. Hugz

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…

IT WASN'T EASY…...

But we did it…..

We managed to choose two fabulously talented ladies out of all the entries we received in our recent Design Team Call and oh boy did we get some entries…. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

It was so hard choosing, there's some seriously creative people out there !!!!

So… who are they ? I hear you ask !!

Drum Roll Please ………..

In no particular order, well, it's alphabetical really, that seemed the fairest way :) :)

We have the FABULOUS Jo Herbert, Jo is sharing her creativity all the way from Australia.


 And the very CREATIVE Riikka Kovasin, Riikka is sharing her creativity from Finland.


They both have a fabulous style, we wouldn't have chosen them otherwise ;) ;) and we're sure you're going to be inspired by them as you are with our other fabulous DT Girlies… #wehavethebestdesignteam
