Glitter the Rainbow with Lea Lawson Guest Designer

Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! Lea Lawson here today, and I am so excited to be a guest with you this month! For my second guest post this month, I have a fun rainbow gradient card to share with with you! I love how the lacey edgers almost make it feel like a pinata! 
To start this card I painted the ombre stripes using Pinkfresh Studio liquid watercolor, then dried them with my WOW! Embossing dual heat tool. Once they were bone dry, I diecut them with the edger dies and layered to the front of a white cardstock panel, popping just each bottom edge up with foam tape. Then I applied a light wash of liquid glue to the bottom of each edge, and lightly sprinkled WOW! Sparkles in Bridal to them. Then I adhered this entire panel to a white A2 card base.

Next I diecut the bow from white glitter paper, assembled it and adhered it to the left side of the card. Then I diecut the word Hooray three times from white cardstock, then stacked & adhered them together. I tapped it directly into the WOW! slow drying embossing ink pad, then covered in Under the Sea embossing powder. I heat set it, then adhered it to the right side of the bow.
To finish, I accented with a few trios of flat-backed jewels in coordinating colors.

I really hope you liked my card today featuring some glittery & sparkly WOW! embossing powders & Sparkles, and don't forget that the Dual Heat Gun is perfect for drying your watercolor pieces! Have a great 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…
