Floral Card Set : Jo Herbert


Hi All and welcome to a fun cardset where I make 4 cards using the same background Stamp "Tropical" from WOW Embossing very own stamp collection range.  Links below of our range both from the US & UK stores.

I have made  process video of today's cardset. 
Now don't laugh at my video as I am well aware I look like I am performing CPR with my MISTI tool when stamping the background stamp as I have used textured cardstock and sometimes you need that little bit of elbow grease to have a good stamped impression.  hehehe


I love the range of colour powders that WOW Embossing has, you can pretty much grab a colour to match your cardstock or very close to. So for today I have used a tone on tone technique where I match  the embossing powder with  my cardstock as I wanted to create a simple yet effective DIY pattern paper. I wanted my cardset to have a clean and simple look yet with the texture of heat embossing adds that WOW element to this cardset. Pardon the pun.

Once I have heat embossed all these,  I die cut with a range of Studio Katia  dies to create panels for all 4 cards.

I have used Distress Oxide inks to stamp the "Hey Little Flowers" stampset for the floral accents of the cards. I have stamped the "Everyday Sentiments" with the same Distress Oxide inks. 

To finished the card off I have used an array of Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh on all cards. 






Hope you have a great paper crafting day and look forward to reading your comments.

Hugs
Jo

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…

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…
