Busy Bees with Heather

Hello everyone... Heather here again with some more inspiration for you using the wonderful WOW! products.
For today's make, I've used a gorgeous Jo Firth Young stamp set from PaperArtsy which is so happy and the images are just so lovely to stamp with.
I started by stamping the images using the fabulous slow drying embossing pad from WOW! onto watercolour card.  For the bees, bee hive and hexagons I've used Metallic Copper Regular and for the tiny hexagons I've used Earthtone Honey.  Having heat embossed all the images, I've then coloured them using watercolours and added a touch of Tonic Nuvo's Aqua Shimmer for some subtle shimmer.
Before adding the images to the background card, I die-cut the corners from both tag and card using a Tim Holtz's Thinlets set and backed with vellum.  This just adds a different focal point to the card.
The gorgeous yellow background was made using Distress Oxide Ink Pads and I've even dripped some of the goo from the Mixed Media Embossing Brush on the tag to look like honey dripping down.
I've layered the images up using foam tape to add dimension to the card and tag.

To finish, I've added a sentiment that I've heat embossed using the fabulous Ebony Super Fine powder  and added sprinkling of adhesive gems.
That's all from me today... I'll see you all again very soon! xx

  1. I love the honeycomb and bees on the card and tag and the die cut corners and hive and then the hexagonal shaped tiles on the tag go beautifully and such pretty colours Heather. x

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…
