VIDEO Marbling Valentines - a card set by Riikka Kovasin


Moikka and splendid new year 2021! I'm excited to be sharing my first 2021 post with you. I know it's just the beginning of January, but I thought to be early this year and share some Valentine's inspiration already! Because what the world always can use some more is love, friendship and compassion.

These three cards have also something else in common than just the theme, it's the technique I used with the embossing powders. Each of the cards has a marbled element. In the first one there's marbled text, in the second one a marbled embellishment and then a marbled background in the third. Click the pictures below to see them bigger!


The technique is really simple, but the effect - at least in my opinion - is really striking! Especially in a larger area like the background. What you just need to remember when doing this is that the layer of the powder is quite thick, so a sturdy background is in order or then backing it up with another piece of cardstock.

When doing a larger area, like the background, you might need to do a couple of layers, but with smaller pieces you can probably get away with just one. What you need on top of the powders, paper and heat tool is an acrylic block or equivalent. This is to force the powders to move and merge with each other. You can see the technique in the video below.

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed the video! I'm wishing you a marvelous new year 2021 and a lot of time to craft!

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: STEP ONE Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles a
