Alter an old frame to a lovely Sping project

Hello, my dear crafty friends! Spring is here and as spring is all about innovation, I decided to give my old and ugly frame a new lovely embossed look. Here is my final result- Spring all around as you can see.

The frame was white painted and dirty, but I didn't even clean it too much, just covered it with a Wow Versamark Inkpad and made some  heat embossed layers all over it.
The first layer was with  WG03 Green and it was too shiny. So I added more embossing ink over it using Wood grain CWS stencil and  WJ02 Honey embossing powder. And it was too shiny and yellow after all. So I covered the  whole frame with more  ink and added  WH03 Evergreen powder.
 Bingo! The  wood grain texture is seen under the upper powder layer and I like the colour much more.

The inner frame is Tando Creative, covered with   some  green paint and then I stamped a few white heat embossed doodles over  with   WL01 Bright White Regular  embossing powder.
All flowers are  covered with a mix of pink( Pastel pink, WR04 Pink, yellow ( WH06 Lemon, WR03 Yellowand white embossing powders, a really random coverage and mix. The title was heat embossed with WM01 Pastel Pink.
One resin embellishment was added and I backed the frame with Scrap Cake piece of paper.
Hope I inspired you  to make your own up cycled project with our gorgeous embossing powders and you still have time to enter it to our monthly challenge and to win some of those delicious powders!


  1. Beautiful project. Love the colours that you have used.

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…
