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 tabs so that I would be able to stick the flaps together neatly. I embossed the circle heart from the Wow "Is It A Bird" stamp set around the edges using Silver Pearl Embossing Powder and scored all of the required lines so that it would fold together.


STEP TWO

On a Dark Grey Pearl card, I stamped and heat Embossed Wow "Brocade" stamp twice using Silver Pearl Embossing Powder. Cut these two pieces out.
STEP THREE

Using pearl silver card, I stamped the frame from Wow "Simply Amazing" stamp set and heat embossed using Silver Embossing Powder. I then created the text within the frame using the Wow Embossing Pen and Black Ebony Embossing Powder. I used super fine embossing powder for the text as there was quite a lot of small details. Cut around the frame but leave space either side for ribbon slits - see the images below!






MAKE UP THE BOX LID
I attached the two pieces of dark grey embossed card to the lid using double sided tape. I threaded dark grey ribbon through two slits either side of the frame and then through two slits within the box lid and secured neatly on the inside of the box lid. Add some foam pads to the back of the frame to lift it. I used double sided tape on the tabs and made the up the box.


 I created a guide so I can easily see which stamps are within each case.



I might decorate the rest of the box at a later date but at least for now, my stamps are protected from the sunlight! :D Now all of my stamps are all together and quick and easy to use. I still keep the large single stamps on their transparent backing all together in a single DVD case rather than within the separate packets that they came in (the CD cases aren't large enough but the extra large stamps are easier to peel off a flexible backing anyway so this works out well).

Here's a list of the Wow products that I used:
Wow "Is It A Bird" stamp set
Wow "Brocade" stamp set
Wow "Simply Amazing" stamp set
Silver Pearl Embossing Powder
Silver Embossing Powder
Black Ebony Embossing Powder
Wow Embossing Pen

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!
