''Two in One'' card by Ola for WOW Embossing Powders Monthly Challenge

Hello there!
Its Ola back with ''Two in One'' card made for WOW Embossing Powders Monthly Challenge.
This month challenge is all about everything and anything that is used to create a gorgeous projects and here is my contribution to this awesome challenge.




To create my first card ,I have used an intricate floral background die by Sizzix . I have die cut it out of a white cards stock and placed on the scrap of paper to protect my worktop.


 


Then I have used WOW embossing pad to cover die cut piece completely before placing 10cm x 13.5 cm piece of white cards stock underneath .

I have firmly stamped all the negative spaces on the intricate die cut again to ensure that I get good impression on the cardstock piece underneath. As I am using my die cut piece as my stencil , all the negative cuts are transferred to cardstock underneath creating gorgeous background for card #2.

Now is the time to cover both of the pieces with WOW embossing powders. I have used new range of powders called Glinz for both of my cards.



For the sentiments I have stamped and embossed ''Thanks'' sentiment by Honey Bee stamps on the piece of velum , and fuzzy cut for card number one and use a strip for card number two.
 


Here we have ''Two in One '' cards made at once!

  1. Two fabulous cards Ola and what a great idea to use the die as a stencil and use the positive and negative images, and love the EP colours, and the large sentiment works beautifully over the top. Thank you for the video step by step too. x

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
