Oh, silver! | Zsoka Marko

Hi there crafty friends,

Zsoka here with you today to share the latest cards I've created for WOW! Embossing Powder. Our theme this month is Silver/Gold and I've created two cards with gold powders for our Facebook challenge so I've decided I'd challenge myself and make silver ones for this blog post!

Also, I really don't like silver! Not sure why, I used to like it as a teenager, in fact I hated gold. But for the past 20 or so years I've sided with gold. I think silver is just too cold for me. Anyway, lie I said, I challenged myself and used it anyway! Here's how the cards turned out:


I buy stamps/dies every month, I can't help it. But I haven't had time to use all of them for the past couple of months, so I try to at least use them for my WOW assignments because other than the embossing powders, I can really use whatever supplies I want, and I love that freedom! So I've combined a few new favorites with some old ones on these cards!


First of all, I've used the Metallic Silver (WC05) embossing powder on both cards. I stamped a bunch of plaid backgrounds using the new Jumbo Plaid Background stamp from The Stamp Market. I created two A2 size top folding card bases and added a plaid panel to both, one in light pink, the other in black and white. For the light pink I die cut a bigger pink circle, a smaller white circle and a black and white plaid circle frame. I embossed my sentiment in silver on the white circle. This sentiment is in the Concord and 9th Very Merry Sentiments stamp set. I also embossed a piece of white card stock in silver. I die cut some small poinsettias using the 3D Poinsettia Dies from The Stamp Market and created 3 flowers. I then assembled my card: I adhered the pink circle to the card front, glued the white circle and the plaid frame on another white circle and using foam tape, I place d this over the pink circle (and some tangled silver thread).  I attached my flowers and last but not least I embellished them with beautiful pink crystals.


For my next card I embossed the big Merry & Bright sentiment from the Concord and 9th Ornamental stamp set (stamp and die bundle is also available) on white card stock. I then used the Scallop Border Dies from The Stamp Market to trim of the top and the bottom of this piece. I had some of these pink scallop borders left from a previous project so I was happy to not waste them and added them here under the white card stock. 


I glued these panels down onto my card front and embellished the card with pink poinsettias (same as the silver ones), some silver embossed leaves (part of the C&9 Ornamental stamp set) and silver enamel dots. 


I actually quite like this color combo ha! All in all I like to challenge myself to try different things at times that I would dismiss otherwise. Who knows, I might even discover new favorites!

I hope you enjoyed this post and I could inspire you in one way or another!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a lovely day!

  3. Like you I'm not a great silver fan. Sorry should of said I wasn't a fan of silver lol. You've certainly changed my mind. I think both your cards are super, the plaid pink background is so very subtle. TFS xxx

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…
