Summer Flowers

Hello all you wonderful follower's,  Donna here from New Zealand.  I love being on international teams, sometimes the briefs we are set are complete opposite to what we are going threw.  Like this months brief was Summer, giggle, its mid winter here :-)  so it was lovely to break out delish colours of summer.  colours I am looking forward to seeing again real soon.  

DID YOU KNOW THAT WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS SELL OTHER PRODUCTS APART FROM EMBOSSING POWDERS.........

THEY DO!

And I really love them.  Today I am going to show you what I did with their stunning

Today you are you....

Who loves flowers, stunning, pretty, brightly coloured to brighten up you day.  (I do)  I made this project for the two oldest girls at home who are about to move into a room together with out the wee ones.  I thought I would give the room a coat of paint and make a few projects for the wall.   This is the first one.   I LOVE this saying by Dr Seuss..."Today you are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you"



To start this project I cut out LOTS of flower shapes using dies and the cricut.  Then spent  hours shaping, gluing and colouring them all in,  adding brads, pearls and embossing powders to give it that sparkle.  What I really love about these flowers is how the WOW resist paper is thick and can take a bit of water and spray without losing the shape.  I LOVE the way the resist paper has taken the sprays and inks and given these flowers stunning texture.


A close up of the flowers and the detail of the resist paper


This close up shows the light sprinkle of embossing powder.  I love that WOW has so much choice in colours,  it would be very hard not to find a colour to complement your project.  For this project I used Easter sparkle which is a lovely yellow and St. Lucia Surf from the Special edition, Caribbean Jewels ( which is my fave of all fave in wow embossing powder, so pretty)


With the scraps from my flowers I could not waist it,  I made some of my leaves and coloured them with distress stains, perfect pearl mists and distress ink.  YUMMO!


I finished my project off with a splash of bling from flourish with a bling and made some birds with Creative paper clay, I used a mould and added the paper clay,  once dried I coloured it with distress ink and then to seal them and to give them a little gloss I embossed with super gloss embossing powder. It's it cool.  I am going to be making more of these for sure.


Well I hope you enjoyed my share for the day,  I would LOVE to hear what you think, so please do leave a comment, we do read them and really appreciate your feed back.  I love the end result and am looking forward to hanging it up on the girls wall. The only down thing is I used all my resist paper :-(  I need more.
Till next time, take care and happy scrappin  xox Donna

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 got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 

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.
