Thank You with Heather

Hello everyone... 

I'm back today sharing a thank you card in view of all the lovely presents I had this Christmas.  As a child, I was always sat down to write thank you's to relative's and I'm sad to say it's a habit that broke a long time ago - now it's usually a text or a quick email! 
I've used Wow!'s glorious Make A Wish stamp set alongside Big Words for this make and their fabulous Opaque Bright White Super Fine and Metallic Silver Super Fine powders.
 To begin, I heat embossed the dandylion heads using the Opaque Bright White powder to create a resist effect.  Over this I gently sprayed Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch Distress Spray Stains and lightly spritzed with water.
 Once dry, I've taken a small polka heart embossing folder and placing some extra thick cardboard around the dandy lions to protect them, run it through a die cutting machine to get a controlled amount of hearts.  If I hadn't placed the extra cardboard in between the folder and the flowers, the whole image would have been embossed.  
 To embossed the hearts, I've run an anti-static bag over them (just to eliminate and static that may be there) and then lightly swiped Wow's Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad over the hearts.  Dust with the Metallic Silver powder and tap the excess off.  I didn't want total coverage, just a light texture to enhance the hearts so I did use a small brush to knock some of the excess silver off.
After splatting the background with Tonic's Nuvo Aqua Shimmer, the sentiment was heat embossed.  I love the Big Words stamps... always one effect for any occasion and the font is perfect! 
I do like to stamp on the inside of cards too... people don't generally expect something other than a quick sentiment so it really adds to the overall finish.  I've also used the Wow! Embossing Pad to swipe round the edges and add a little of the Metallic Silver Super Fine powder to add a frame to the interior.

Don't forget to join in with the monthly challenge over on the Wow! Embossing Fans page on Facebook.  January's challenge is just coming to a close but if you're quick you've got a few days to enter a card with a 'Love' theme (think Valentine's Day, Weddings, anniversaries etc).  February's challenge is Embossing Glitters so anything super sparkly!! 

If you're on Instagram, check out Wow!'s page... or just search #wowembossingpowder and all manner of delights pop up!  

Catch up with you all again soon... Heather xx

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…
