Happy Birthday with Isha Gupta

Hello Everyone! The March challenge is here on our facebook group and the theme is "New to You Products" I know the Glintz are there for a while but they are new to me and I love love the soft, pearly shine. So for my card today, I used the Aztec Glintz embossing powder along with the Opaque White super fine ep.

I started with the WOW! Superior Smooth white cardstock. Sponged scattered straw and worn lipstickdistress oxide ink to the edges. Now I put the stencil on this panel and applied the same inks through the stencil. I have a pretty background ready. 

For my focal image I die-cut this floral Daisy Flower Frame by Memory box. I applied WOW! Clear Ultra Slow drying ink to it, sprinkle the Aztec glintz powder and heat set this using the dual heat tool. I repeated the same process two more time. This gives me a nice chipboard kind of effect for the focal image.

Adhere this to the card. I stamped the sentiment using the clear ink onto black stripe and emboss it using the white embossing powder. Adhere it to the card.

To finish, I flicked some gold paint and adhered some crystals.

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…

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…
