In love with Red and Black and WOW powders

Hello, my dear crafting friends! Irit is here again and this time with a small tutorial.
Lately I am a kind of Washi tape addict , so I decided to try to stamp and to heat embossover those tapes and also it works, but with  some catch after all.(Continue to read ...)
First of all pick your tapes and adhere some pieces over a non sticky plastic (I used the cheap baking reusable backing sheet, also I have this Ranger fancy one, the small and 2$ piece is just fine).

Now pick some small stamps : I picked heart strip   from With Gratitude set and a heart from It's a  Bird set. Now stamp  over your tape. I used white ink and  Opaque Bright White Wow Embossing powder, but it can be any Clear  embossing  ink and any other powder colors as far as it's visible over the washi tape.

And now for the catch: after I made my heat embossing, the delicate adhesiveunder the tape  became useless. So we can  grab our  tapes and to adhere them over our project, but then we need to secure them a bit with some other glue. I found that 3d Glossy Accents  works  just perfect over the tapes and I got this shiny look too.
So here is my final project: kind of a card or a Thanks note, made with Glitz and 7 Gypsies cards and ATC base, covered around the edges with Cable Red and Ivory  Black powders.
I also stamped some leaves from the same stamp set and a Thanks sentiment.

Now grab your washi tape and try this fun technique. Washi are trendy and lovely and even cheap as they last forever.

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…
