Gold Embossed Christmas Wreath with Ankita

Hi friends! Thank you so much for stopping by today to read up on this blog post. The monthly challenge that is going on over at WOW! Embossing Powder Fans Group over at Facebook is Silver/Gold and I made a card for this blog post that was in line with the challenge requirements. 

To start off, I used the Holly Pine die from Hello Bluebird stamps for this card and die some die cutting using Bristol Smooth Cardstock and did some distress ink blending on it using Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage. 
I die cut some using regular cardstock and made them into metallic holly by coating them with WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossing them using the WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder. I did that twice for each die cut.

I die cut Merry using Aqua cardstock four times and stuck them all together. I coated them with the WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed using WOW! Neutal Ultra Shimmer Embossing Powder. Again, I did that twice.

I stamped the images from the North Pole Littles from Hello Bluebird Stamps and colored them in using my copic markers. The bow was cut using red polka dot patterned paper and I added some glitter knot in the centre. 

I used a Fog cardstock panel for the background and heat embossed falling snow which is the Falling Snow background stamp from Hello Bluebird stamp using WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and WOW! Opaque Bright White Regular Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the Snow Play Stamp Set head embossed on Black cardstock again using WOW! Opaque Bright White Regular Embossing Powder.

I  mounted all the elements on an A2 sized top folding card base made from Neenah Solar White Classic Crest 110 lb cardstock. That is all for this card. I hope you liked it!

Have a wonderful day!

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:


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…

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…

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…
