Simply British

Hi All

It's my turn to provide you with some inspiration for our fab challenge this month. I can't say that I'm the most patriotic of people but even I found myself moved by some of the scenes over the Jubilee weekend.


I decided to keep things simple and show off two of the featured powders by using them to make a flag. I cut a card to size, drew out the flag in pencil and then using an embossing pen started to emboss the sections, beginning with the red and working outwards. Each of the blue sections was done individually and a paint brush was used to get the lines reasonably even. I stamped a sentiment and added to the front. So there you have it quick and simple.




Shopping List

Primary Colours - Lagoon Regular WH02R
Red Glitz Embossing Glitter WS13R
Embossing Pen

I was even inspired to make my calendar journal pages fit the Jubilee theme so do pop over to my blog and see what I came up with.


Another DT member will be along soon with more inspiration so do keep popping back and I hope that you'll play along with us.


Hoots and Hugs

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:



STEP ONE

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…
