With Love from me to you

Hi - Christine here again with this month's theme "Love and Romance" - and what better way to celebrate than with a lovely bottle of red to share between two.

I made a bottle cover complete with an embossed heart so that you can use it as a gift for that someone special.  Here's how I made it.

Firstly I covered some WoW Resist Papers (pre-Embossed) with black Dye ink then when dry, polished off some of the ink to highlight the embossed image. I then took a patterned circle and embossed it with Pearl Gold Sparkle powders.
Then using Funky Foam Letters I embossed each letter in turn with Primary Apple Red powder and stuck these onto the gold circle. This was then stuck onto the resist paper and fixed to the bottle with tape.

For the heart at the top I embossed a die cut heart shape with 3 layers of Apple Red and 3 layers of Ultra High Clear Braille powder. I then spread some Pearl Gold Sparkle powder on some paper and inked up the Brocade stamp with clear ink. I then placed the inked stamp onto the powder.
I then heated up the heart and whilst it was hot, placed the powdered stamp into the heated heart. This impressed the gold sparkle powder into the triple embossed heart leaving a gold flourish pattern. This was then attached to the bottle with ribbon at the top.  To finish and for the bottom silhouette image -  I stamped the Simply Amazing silhouette frame onto white card using Ebony black embossing powder and triple embossed on top with clear - then cut it out and stuck it to the bottle.

This would make a lovely present and could be adapted to suit any occasion. Hope you like it and happy crafting ..                                                                                                                                                                

Products used for this project were:

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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

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…
