Tuto Wow

Hi everyone!
Today, I'd like to show you this layout, 100% made with inks, masks and stamps. You'll find out that it's very simple to create your own backgrounds.
First, select the photos and the colors you want to use. I chose Wow's Honey, Olive and Whirly Pop colors. I also used Tattered Angels Tuscan Sun, Vintage pink and Vanilla Breeze inks and a mask from the Crafters Workshop. Put the mask onto a white paper and spray the inks. Then, put some versamark on a stamp from the set Call me and use it on the background.
Apply some embossing powder, take away the remaining powder and heat with a heat gun.

Do the same with the hearts from the Gratitude stamps board and some Whirly Pop powder. Do it again with the frame of the Gratitude stamps board and some Olive embossing powder.

Use the leaf from the Gratitude stamps board many times with Olive and Gummy Bear Green colors on a few stiff white papers. Then, you'll be able to cut them out and stick them onto your background to give it some contrast.

Highlight the text of the mask with a blue pastel. Then, stick a leaf on the edge of the photo and a second one below it.

Stamp and color the heart frame at the bottom of the layout with some Nutmeg embossing powder.

Write down the journaling inside the writing of the mask with a fine black pencil.

To finish, add up a piece of twine and two butterfly embellishments.

You're layout is done. You can see that you shouldn't use too many embellishments to avoid hiding the work of creation you've done on the background.
I hope you'll get inspired by this tuto. Talk to you soon on Wow's blog, and have a great day!!Benedicte.

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.

For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.

The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

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…
