VIDEO: Repeat Pattern Stamping and Emboss Resist with Erica

Hi guys!

It's Erica back on the blog, and YouTube channel, today! It's another repeat pattern theme and for this card I used a stamp that is so clever. It is actually designed to be a repeat stamp, this one is from Picket Fence Studios and is called Fruitylicious. It is so easy to line up too, so this doesn't take much to create the repeat pattern.

I did use the MISTI to get the line up done just right, and then I dabbed the Embossing Pad all over it. I stamped it on the Bristol Vellum card stock as I was planning on doing some emboss resist. It's heat embossed in Opaque Bright White Super Fine, which I am absolutely obsessed with. It's a MAJOR staple in my embossing powder stash.

After setting that with the heat tool, I did some ink blending with Distress Oxide inks in Twisted Citron, Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed. I did get out Wild Honey too, but didn't end up using that one. For the actual ink blending I used a different Life Changing Blender brush for each colour.

To finish off the card I diecut two different word diecuts, because I wasn't sure what I was going to actually say on it. I used thanks and hello from Lawn Fawn. Each one is cut out of card stock four times, then layered up. On top of these I added a little bit more colour, and then heat embossed them with Clear Gloss embossing powder.

The word diecut I settled on was hello, and to finish off the sentiment I also stamped up 'my dear friend' in black ink on white card stock. This I trimmed down and simply glued down to the card and that was it! So easy and simple, right?

Don't forget to check out the video over on the YouTube channel too, and to play along with the Facebook fan challenge. There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs to a randomly drawn winner!

That's it from me for today! Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

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…
