Greeting Card with Paper Flowers by Susanne

 Hi everyone.

Susanne here today with a mixed media greeting card with 3d paper flowers.
I used melting powder mixed with Sparkles, Embossing Powder and Brushos to create the centers of my flowers. I will tell you all the details in my tutorial...

Here are the step by step instructions:

1. I cut a stencil from Mylar (stencil material) with a Tim Holtz Mixed Media die. I used the Embossing Ink Pad and pressed it onto the stencil to get a impression on my card background. After that I embossed it with three of the brand new Metalline powders from WOW! (Himalaya Musk, Kiwi Krush, Perfect Plum)

To get this effect I just sprinkled some of the first two powders onto my image and covered the rest with the last powder. This is an easy technique, which you can do with all kinds of different powders.

 2. I coloured the background with ColourCraft Brusho Mists.

3. I used watercolour paper that was inked with Distress Oxides and cut different paper flowers. I use stylus tools to bring them in shape. I adhered my background to a card base and glued the flower arrangement down.

 4. I mixed melting powder with WOW! Sparkles Truffle, Metalline Himalaya Musk and some Dark Brown Brusho Powder. After everything was melted I dumped some drops onto my craft mat, let them dry and used them as my flower centers.

5. Finally I glittered a greeting die cut with Sparkles Truffle. The easiest way to do this is to cut the word from cardstock that is covered with double sided tape. The glitter will stick perfectly to it.

6. I adhered the sentiment to the right bottom corner.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you like my card.
xx Susanne.

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…

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…
