Shine bright with etched platinum....!!

Hey embossing friends...

It's Ashlee here today and I have a set of cards to share with you featuring a brand new powder from one of the Seth Apter trio's Etched Platinum!!

For one of the cards I did embossed stars and the other an embossed stencil background with stars too....

To create the first card I used Gansai Tambi watercolour paints to create a galaxy, I then mounted that feature piece onto some black cardstock and mounted it on my card base with foam tape...

Using a piece of white cardstock I covered it in WOW! embossing ink and embossed with the WOW! Etched platinum powder, this then gave me a beautiful piece to die cut my stars!!

I then added the stars to my watercolour panel and card base...

To finish off this card a couple of sentiments to fit the galaxy theme and some pretty CP Crater lake sequins to add some more bling!! 

(Sentiments from MFT Starry nights stamp set/co-ordinating dies)

For my second card I created a base using a blend of distress oxide inks 

- Lucky clover
- Wilted violet
- Dusty concord
- Blueprint sketch
- Black soot

Once my inks were dry I went over the base with my anti static tool so that none of my powder would stick to any of the ink. I placed the stencil (Altenew beveled squares) over the top, went over it with WOW! embossing ink and embossed with WOW! Etched platinum!!

I added die cut stars from the same panel I embossed with the WOW! Etched platinum powder from my first card and a shine bright sentiment along with some sequins and the second card was complete!!

Here is a close up of the WOW! embossing products used for this set of cards...

I hope you feel inspired to get out your embossing goodies and get creative, there is lots of new WOW! powders hitting the shop that I totally recommend checking out!! 
(They are all AMAZING!!) 

Happy crafting, 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…
