Drops with melt it....!!

Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you all today to share a something fun I made to use as embellishments for cards using WOW! embossing powder and melt it powder!!

To start off I will explain how I created these cards and then get to the embellishments..

For my base I used some watercolour cardstock which I sprinkled on some Catherine Pooler colour bursts and sprayed with water... 

This technique created a fun base to then use a beautiful CP background called climbing flowers over the top which I heat embossed with WOW! clear gloss powder!!

Once that was all heat embossed I used CP midnight ink to go over the whole piece...

The gloss powder resists the ink but I gave it a wipe over with a bit of paper towel and a baby wipe to remove some of the colour that was sitting on top. 

It's so fun to see the end result once all the layers are done!!

For the embellishments I wanted to create my own little clear enamel type drops so to do this I popped some melt it powder and primary blue topaz powder into a tin and melted it all together with my WOW! dual heat gun....

Once all melted I started tipping tiny little drops onto my nonstick surface...

They don't take long to set at all but once they have you just pick them off your surface and you have lots of assorted sizes of drops to use on your projects....

I added quite a few of them to the main kind die cut sentiment on these cards....

This is so much fun to do with the powders, I hope you will try it out and make lots of your own enamel drops in all the colours!!

Happy crafting everyone, Hugs Ashlee.

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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
