Easter Pastels with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Pastels. I used some pretty pastel embossing powders to make an Easter themed card.


I began by choosing some Pretty Pink Posh Easter Eggs to emboss. I wanted to copic colour the images, but it’s not advised to use copics on embossed images as it can damage the nibs. To get around this, I used my stamping platform to first stamp the images in a light ink colour.


Once I’d copic coloured the images, I put the piece of card back in my stamp platform, stamping over them again using WOW clear embossing ink. I then embossed them using Pink, Yellow, and Blue Opaque Pastel embossing powders.


I layered the Easter Eggs with foam tape over some leaf and berry images from the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Wreath stamp set. 

To finish, I stamped a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Easter Eggs set, then added some PPP clear sparkling jewels around the card.



Have a lovely day,
Gemma

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…
