Glitter resist tutorial

Hello!  Jen Roach and today I have an embossing resist tutorial to share with you today using the WOW! Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter and the Flowers backgrounder stamp.  So let's get started.....

First I printed out some dictionary text digital paper onto some cardstock and stamped the Flowers backgrounder onto it with Versamark ink.


Then I heat embossed with WOW! Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter.


Next I took some Ranger Distress inks in blue and teal tones and applied all over the surface with a blending tool.  Start with the lighter tones and then apply the darker until you achieve the look you're going for.


Here's a close up of the finished image panel.  As you can see the glitter embossing powder works really well for the resist technique.


To create the finished card I trimmed my image panel, matted onto some white scalloped cardstock and then embellished with some lace, ribbon and flowers.


Supplies:
WOW! Embossing Powder:  WOW! Ultra Shimmer Embossing glitter.
WOW! Embossing Stamps:  Flowers Backgrounder
Papers:  My Mind's Eye, Georgia Pacific cardstock
Ink: Versamark (for embossing), Ranger Distress Inks
Accessories:  Prima flowers, decorate pins, white eyelet lace, silk ribbon, Prima pearls

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…
