Video with Carisa: Parc Floral Trio, You're So Wonderful

Hi everyone! Embossing a large focal stamp adds such an impact to your card as I'm going to share with you all today. If you are coloring an image, you don't have to limit yourself to embossing in traditional white or black. Think outside the box and choose a beautiful power to enhance your coloring! The Parc Floral Trio is an amazing set of powders perfect for your floral stamps. 

The Hydrangea powder is a beautiful subtle mix of pinks and blues and white. I love the way it enhances the florals in this stamp against the watercoloring. It embosses beautifully every single time and is such a subtle change from embossing in white when coloring that I want to use it all the time now. 

The Sunflower has such a wow factor and really creates a pop of color. All 3 of the colors in this trio look stunning together. The trios are some of my favorites to reach for because I know they are all going to be so cohesive no matter what combo I choose. I use a double emboss technique to really give some dimension to that focal sentiment as well as cutting out additional letters to adhere together to create some depth.

I hope you'll enjoy the process video below to see this entire card come together from start to finish. It's one of my favorite projects to date and I hope you will find some inspiration from it as well!

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…
