Knitting on Repeat with Gemma

Today I have a card to share using this month’s theme of ‘Repeat Patterns’. I’m using the WOW Simply Sew stamp set, teaming it with WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set to create my repeat pattern background.

I began by cutting a piece of blue cardstock to slightly smaller than my A2 notecard base.

Using a stamp positioner, I repeatedly stamped one of the larger images from the WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set over the background, using WOW clear embossing ink, then heat embossing with WOW Metalline Blue embossing powder. This opaque powder shows up beautifully on dark cardstock.

Once I’d embossed the whole panel, I used the Lawn Fawn Just Double Stitching rectangle die set to add some more detail to the panel. I then adhered it to my white card base.

Next, I die cut two tags using the Hello Bluebird Stitched Tag Builder die set. I embossed a sentiment from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set using the same Metalline Blue embossing powder. I used some silver coloured thread to tie the tags together, then adhered them on my card.

I stamped and copic coloured the ball of wool and knitting needles from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set. I cut them out and adhered them to my card with foam tape to finish. I love this monochromatic card, perfect for someone who loves to knit.

Have a lovely day,

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…
