Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hi,
I feel very privileged to be able to do some projects for the fabulous Altenew.
They celebrate 4 years this month, and WOW! Embossing Powders have been with them along the way. And now you can join in the fun and WIN prizes !!!!
We love how our products work so well with theirs… So let me show you what I've created….
We all love a bit of Sparkle, right !!

Let's start off with a video tutorial using the Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamps and Dies with the Crafty Friends Stamps teamed up with WOW! Sparkles and Clear Gloss.

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

  • I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. 
  • I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. 
  • I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions in the above video) 
  • I then die cut it and adhered it across the heart.
Hello
This is like a two for one….
The larger card was made and whilst stencilling I used the remaining ink from the stencil to create the second card. I used Altenew Splatter Stencil, Blooming Bouquet Dies, Halftone Heart Stamps, Ink Sprays in Ocean Wave and Set glass and WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder. 
  • On a panel slightly smaller than the card base I spritzed through the stencil
  • Die cut 3 'hello's' 
  • Using the sprays on a piece of Cut n Dry foam I coloured the top half of the words graduating down so there was no colour on the bottom.
  • I inked these up and embossed them in WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder
  • I adhered these to the card front leaving a small gap to add my sentiment from the Half Tone Hearts Stamps.
On the smaller card I used Altenew Splatter Stencil (reversed), Ink Spray Sea Glass, Blooming Bouquet Dies, Halftone Hearts Stamps, WOW! Twinklebelle and A Girls Best Friend Sparkles
  • Lay card front directly on sprayed stencil to 'collect' the remaining ink
  • Apply double sided adhesive to some card stock and die cut the 'hello' Peel off the front and sprinkle WOW! Twinklebelle Sparkles to the top side and repeat on the bottom with WOW! A Girls Best Friend Sparkles.
  • Die cut 'hello' from black card stock, adhere behind the sparkled one, slightly off setting. Adhere to card front.
  • Using a sentiment from the Half Tone Hearts, stamp on a scrap of card stock and adhere below the 'hello'.
Blooming Bouquet
Who can't resist white embossing on Kraft card stock, I know I can't !!
Here, I've used WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder, Altenew Blooming Bouquet Stamp and Die

  • Ink up the large flower from the stamp set and stamp on to kraft card front so that it stamps off the edge. Emboss with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.
  • Stamp the word 'hello' on a piece of vellum in the Opaque Bright White
  • Die cut the word 'hello' in black and adhere behind the word on the vellum, slightly off setting it.
  • Adhere to the card front, hiding the glue behind the word. adhere a few sequins, again you can hide the glue behind these as well.
And that finishes my little contribution to Altenew's fabulous Blog Hop.

Happy Aanniversary Altenew… may you continue to have MANY more and keep bringing us fabulous products.

  19. beautiful cards. Embossing powder makes the cards stand out. I am horrible with embossing powder. Even though I follow all directions on using the dusting powder before embossing etc. Still get small dots of powder where they don't belong. Of course, it has not stopped me from trying again and again.

    ReplyDelete
  104. I definitely want to try the two-step glitter process. I am going to mark that one for future reference as a wonderful "technique to try"! And I totally agree: nothing better than white on kraft. (Although I do love some fine detail white on black for a sentiment strip, especially on some beautiful florals.) I have heard that WOW! powders are formulated to minimize static so that you don't need an embossing pouch--is that really true? Thanks for a new technique, some wonderful examples, and for sponsoring. (And...I love my mini Blossom. That was one pricey purchase that I have not regretted---not for a single moment. )

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Bev, that certainly is true. We treat our Powders to remove the static, they are fab. Saying that, they don’t like fingerprints or moisture so always try and handle your card from the edges. The mini blossom is fab, I love it, Marion xx

  105. Who can resist a little sparkle? Certainly not me. I love all of your cards and especially like the kraft with the white embossing. Great use of the Altenew stamps and your Wow products!

    ReplyDelete
  161. The blooming bouquet is truly special. It is hard to believe that Mountain Dew could accomplish so much in four short years but they have. I also really like wow powders. I wish that more came in the really big jars, those are just perfect for pouring your excess powder back in the jar. I use clear more than anything else and it’s just great having that large size bottle instead of a small tube..

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…
