Triple Embossing:

Hello paper crafting peeps Jo here and welcome to today's card creation  demonstrating the triple embossing technique. I have created these leaves impressions with the gold & rose gold embossing  powders stamping with the Flights of Fancy set.

TIP: This technique is a great way for creating your own embellishments.

Tipple embossing technique -
Step 1. Place the ink pad directly on the cardstock and generously apply the embossing poweder on the ink. 
Step 2. Heat emboss with the heat gun.
Step 3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 3 times over and place the heat gun over the 3rd time round a little extra longer until it turns molten. You will see the difference as the powder almost looks molten or  liquidy. 

TIP: Make sure your stamp is already mounted and ready to stamp for Step 4.

Step 4. Working quickly place the stamp while the embossing powder is still molten over the top applying a heavy pressure. Count to 10 and slowly lift off the stamp leaving behind the impression. 

For the card base I have used a stencil and embossing past on a white matted card front to add a added texture to the card. 

TIP: White on white has a nice subtle effect without taking away the main focal image on your card.

Using the Mr WOW Wonderful Words I have stamped with black archival ink the 'best' sentiment to co-ordinate with the wishes die. 

To finish the card off I have dded some clear sequins adding a little bit of bling to the 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:


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…
