Vintage dressform card with a touch of WOW!

Hello!  Jennifer Roach here and today I’m sharing a vintage inspired card I created featuring an embellished chipboard dress form and WOW! Cotton Candy embossing powder from the Candy Counter collection.

Using the embossing powder and stamping on my card added lots of fun texture and shine and of course a nice pop of colour.  I added more texture to the card by embossing the background paper with an embossing folder and adding some sewing across the ribbon and up the left hand side of bracket shaped paper.

And here are more details on how I added WOW! To my card:

To create the embossed dress form:  I sprayed it with dark brown ink and allowed to dry.  Then I stamped the dress form in Versamark ink with the script stamp (masking with paper to make sure I only got the script part) and heated emboss with Cotton Candy embossing powder.  I embellished it with a ribbon bow and flower.

To create the embossed edge on the bracket shape paper:  I took a Versamark pen, outlined the edge of the paper and heat embossed with Cotton Candy.

To create the embossed polka dot scalloped border:  I embossed the polka dot background with a Cuttlebug folder and then added Versamark ink all over top before adding the Cotton Candy embossing powder. After embossing I die cut the paper with a scalloped border die and inked the edges.

Stamps:  Call me set from WOW Embossing (postage edge script)
Ink:  Versamark (for embossing), Ranger Distress Ink Vintage Photo
WOW! Embossing colours:  Candy Counter collection – Cotton Candy (blue)
Papers:  Making Memories, Basic Grey, Georgia Pacific white cardstock Accessories:  May Arts ribbon, Prima flower, Maya Road brown ink spray (to colour chipboard), Maya Road Chipboard dress form, Micheals ribbon, brown button, sewing machine, Cuttlebug polka dot embossing folder, Dienamics scalloped edge die from MFT

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…
