I don't need a reason….

I absolutely love this sentiment !!! I mean, who needs a reason to make someone smile, and this card will certainly make someone smile, right !!
This Catherine pooler set of stamps worked so perfectly with our wonderful new Metalline Powders, they work on every detail and give that shimmer that makes you want to keep coming back for more !!
Take a piece of scrap card stock and stamp out a selection of flowers and leaves, embossing in various WOW! Metalline Powders. Do loads and store them in a little bag and when you need a card in a hurry you're ready to go. On the card front stamp and emboss some of the larger circles and leaves. Sprinkle on WOW! Gold Rich Ultra High and heat from underneath, in fact, where possible always try and heat from underneath, you'll get a much better finish.
With the matching dies to this stamp set, die cut the flowers and leaves. The Altenew Mini Blossom is perfect for this, as well as being the cutest die cut machine on the market !!
Start positioning and mounting using foam pads. Stamp the sentiment to the side.
Mount up your card.
                                     
Simple but effective.

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…

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…
