Rainbows all the way!

Hi everyone
Its my turn to share with you my Rainbow challenge card for this month!
I love rainbows, just something about them that makes me happy!

So this is what I used to create my 'happy' card.


I used Pink and Main Happy For You stamp set with all those gorgeous different colours of embossing powders - all from the Primary range -  Pink Robin, Marshmallow, Sunset Orange, Lemon, Luscious Lime, Lagoon and Indigo with a bit of beautiful sparkle in the Pearl Gold Sparkle! 



I stamped the wording using my stamping platform, starting with Lemon, working up and they down my card blank.



Stamped the sentiment using the amazing WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad, sprinkled over the powder, tap the excess off and heat to reveal the fabulous shiny finish.


I then stamped the 'Happy' from Pink and Main Happy Stamp set and sprinkled over the stunning Pearl Gold Sparkle embossing powder, again using my stamping platform.  I was then able to ink the 'happy' and stamp again, sprinkle more Pearl Gold Sparkle powder over the top, tap excess off an heat to reveal all that wonderful sparkle!


I stamped the last sentiment with the last colour, Pink Robin, below the sparkly 'happy' to finish my card.


I wanted to embellish my card, so added twine wrapped around my card and tied a bow to secure it and added a few sequins.


Hope you like my card and it inspires you to have a go creating your own little rainbow!

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…
