Hi all Marion here and welcome to my creations for the hop ...........


When you have beautiful products to work with, you can't class it as a 'job' Ours aside, Honey Bee Stamps and dies are just stunning and such a wonderful quality !!

Why not join along and make this card for that special friend.
5" x 5" folded card
4.75" card front, using the Double Stitched Heart Dies from Pink and Main cut out a heart just off to the right. The fab thing about these dies is the stick goes on the piece thats cut and the aperture !!!
 Using the die cut piece, draw around with a pencil to get your heart shape, this is your guide for stamping the leaves in
 Fill the heart up with leaves alternating the colours. I used WOW! Kiwi Krush, Goose and Avocado.
Using foam pads adhere the aperture to the card base.
Stamp and emboss three flowers from the Spring Blossom stamp set with WOW! Cloud 9, then die cut them. I used the Spring Blossom Stamps https://shop.honeybeestamps.com/spring-blossoms-stamp/and Dies https://shop.honeybeestamps.com/springblossoms-honey-cuts-steel-dies/
 Adhere to card front coming off the heart aperture, I used Pinflair glue as this gives you dimension and allows you to stick some stamens in and around the flowers. stamp the word Sweet Friend from the WOW! Just Saying Stamp Set on a piece of card stock and adhere to the card front.
 You should give this fabulous Company a try, you won't be disappointed !!!
I couldn't stop there, in fact if I had more time I'd have done loads, but rest assured this won't be the last time you see these stamps and dies…. Here's another quick card..
 Cover your card panel (this can be done in any size) in various colour inks. I used the Catherine Pooler Inks, they're so vibrant, juicy and just, well, lovely !!!
 Make sure you cover all the white card stock, heat set it so it's completely dry.
 Using the Honey Bee Spring Blossom Stamps, stamp and emboss randomly using WOW! Clear Embossing Powder.
 Taking Versafine Onyx Black ink all over, covering everything. Then wipe away with kitchen roll to reveal the colourful flowers underneath. Using the Pink and Main Double Stitched Dies, cut a small heart out of the panel. Mount onto folded card base, stamp a sentiment and adhere across the heart.

  17. Hi Marion, your cards are gorgeous! I absolutely adore Honey Bee stamps and dies and you are right, you won't be disappointed! They are fantastic and the quality is top notch! With that said, some of my first EP's were WOW brand I have to say they are STILL my faves. I only have the basic colours (black, white, silver,gold, etc.) but I think I need to up my game after seeing Cloud 9, Fool's Gold, etc.
    I definitely learned a lot on this fun hop and hope to see WOW & Honey Bee collaborate again soon!

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…

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 i…
