Be(you)tiful Florals with Heather

Hello everyone...

I'm sharing a lovely Spring card on the WOW! blog today and I'm using Sparkling Sand and Glassy Ocean from the Dockside trio, the beautiful Metalline Kiwi Krush and everyone's trusty Opaque Bright White.
The Magnolia flowers are from a Tonic Studios stamp 'Magnificent Magnolia' which I've stamped repeatedly using the Wow! Embossing Pad and their wonderful Bright White embossing powder.
 I had some Arteza Watercolour Brush Pens bought for me recently and they are so easy to use!  I chose Red, Cadmium Orange, Orange and Peach to colour the flowers and used a watercolour brush to dilute and make the colours flow into each other.
Once they were trimmed, I shaped them using a flower shaper tool and layered them using foam tape and a glue gun.  
For the background, I've used the two circle stamps from WOW!'s Hearts and Twine set and stamped them using the beautiful Glassy Ocean and the twinkly Sparkling Sand from the Jo Firth-Young trio, Dockside.  
Once heat embossed, I used watercolours to make a watery background and then, once dry, splattered on some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray Stains and some beautiful Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
 The cute little leaves are stamped using Metalline Kiwi Krush (one of my favourite powders!)  and I used the Arteza Watercolour Brush Pens again in Seaweed Green and Light Green to add some background colour before trimming.
Before adding all the florals to the card, I needed a sentiment and the 'be(you)tiful' words, from the  Big Words stamp set were perfect for this make.

With all the images layered on the background, I matted it onto some pearlised gold card and them onto an 8x6" card blank.
That's all from me for today... see you all again soon!

  1. A very bright and pretty look with the orange and blue Heather, and the flowers and foliage so dimensional and love the added glittery embossed stamped circles too. x

  2. Beautiful! I love how you added dimension to the petals!

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…
