Embossed Christmas chipboard....!!

Hey everyone....

Ashlee here with you today sharing some Christmas inspiration which is our theme this month at WOW! embossing!!

To create this one I used some chipboard pieces from Make it crafty and heat embossed them in some beautiful powders....


For the wreath piece I used "Diamond white" embossing powder and for the Merry Christmas I used "Metallic gold sparkle".... 

(Just a note, unfortunately diamond white powder is going to be discontinued soon so if you don't currently have that beauty in your stash I'd totally suggest getting your hands on one quick if you can.....It's so pretty)


I love using my WOW! embossing powders to cover chipboard pieces, its such an easy way of adding colour and sparkle to any piece!!


I added both of my chipboard pieces to a grey cardstock base with some glue and then added some pretty sequins from a Catherine Pooler mix called Vegas baby....

Using embossed chipboard pieces is an easy way to create such beautiful cards in a small amount of time if you are a little short on that... 


I hope you like this Christmas card and will come and join us this month with our monthly theme over in the WOW! embossing powder fans Facebook group....
I'd love to see your beautiful Christmas cards!!

Happy crafting everyone, until my next post
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:



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…

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…
