Love is in The Air with Karen Reategui

Hi shiny friends! Today I’m sharing a see-through shaker card using the Love You More stamp from The Rabbit Hole Designs. In this card I'm trying for the first time the WOW! Embossing Ink Pad Refill, Conditioner & Freestyle Tool and I just have to say that it's amazing and a very helpful tool for those embossing lovers! 

Let’s shine! For this card, I stamped the images on watercolor paper using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder.

Then, I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. Once I finished coloring, I die cut all images and set them aside. Next, I die cut a frame six times. Reserved one and glued the rest one on top of each other.

To create the shaker pocket, I adhered this stack of frames to an acetate folded card using double sided tape. I poured beads and red hearts inside. Also, I adhered some images too.

Before closing this shaker pocket, I stamped the first sentiment on this piece of acetate using WOW! Embossing Pad and heat embossed it with WOW! Red Glitz embossing powder. I closed the pocket.

In addition, I inked up the reserved frame using WOW! Embossing Ink Pad Refill, Conditioner and Freestyle Tool, then heat embossed it with WOW! Red Glitz embossing powder. I adhered this embossed frame on top of the card.

Finally, I arranged the images on top of the acetate using mini glue dots, added the second sentiment and embossed hearts over the balloons. Last, I added some clouds in the inside of the acetate card.

This was my card for today. You can use it for Valentine’s Day or for other occasion. I hope I could inspired you and I encourage you to try the WOW! Red Glitz embossing powder on your Valentine projects. Have a marvelous and shiny 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…

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…
