ART is in my DNA by Heather

Hi everyone...
Heather back again and for today's make I've used the fabulous and wonderful new Changer powders... and I'm addicted!  I've used all three on this card, Glisten, Sheen and Texture with a clear powder simply because initially, I was just experimenting.
 The background is made using Distress Oxide ink pads and then I've taken a PaperArtsy stencil (#PS101) and used a sponge dabber to add the embossing ink from the pad and then sprinkled the different powders on.
You can really see (and feel!) the difference between the three different textures.  Sheen has a soft, satin finish whereas Texture has a real scratchy feel to it and feels like sand almost.  Glisten does exactly exactly what it says... sparkles and twinkles! 
The stamp sets I've used are both Aall & Create and  the nibs stamp (#276) has been stamped using Metallic Silver Superfine powder and then coloured using Arteza Brush pens.
The paintbrush (#277) has been heat embossed in three parts.  The handle has been embossed using Metallic Copper Superfine and the crimp part in Metallic Gold.  The bristles have been heat using Oiled Slate from the Dockside Trio by Jo Firth-Young.  
The perfect sentiment fort his card comes courtesy of Visible Image's 'The World Needs Art' sentiment set and it's a set I use all the time.  Here I've heat embossed it onto black and then white card using Opaque Bright White before adding it to the card using foam tape.

  1. The colours are great Heather and the nibs and paintbrush with the sentiment really complement one another, also the embossing in the background looks so pretty. A super card! 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…
