Party Invitations Booklet for 2013

Hi there, Christine here again with this month's project.

                                                                   This month Iv'e created a Party Invitations Booklet so I can add all my friends names and addresses into one place ready to get those invites out in the post.

To make this booklet you need a piece of Funky Foam folded in half. Cut into the edges to distress and heat the foam up with a heat gun in sections. Whilst each section is hot, press a stamp or other item with a raised surface into the foam.  Ink up the raised surfaces with a gold ink pad.

Tear a piece of blue paper and scrunch it up, fold it out flat and ink up the edges and surface with brown ink.  Add clear Versamark Embossing Pad to the raised surface areas only and emboss with Caribbean Jewels "Cayman Coral" Embossing Powder.

Emboss some cut out numbers 2013 with Martinique Mauve from the "Caribbean Jewels" set and add this to the front. Emboss some chipboard shapes with Kalahari powders from the "Desert Sands" kit. Then to finish, write out the words "Party Invitations" with a glue pen and add Bright Gold Foil when tacky. To complete the booklet add a tassle to the edge ready to slip your pages inside -

Happy Christmas and New Year to you all.

Products used in this project were:    Caribbean Jewells Kit - Cayman Coral Powder
                                                                                              Martinique Mauve 
                                                        Desert Sands Kit         - Kalahari
                                                        Fab Foil - Bright Gold

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…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
