Inspired by Sian

I just loved this months theme, to be inspired by one of my amazing team mates. I had a hard time deciding on what to do but that is ok since I got to visit all of their blogs and also browse back here in the WOW! blog and finally I found this card by Sian that I think is so clever and pretty!

I loved the windows that shows the pretty stamp and that it's really a clean design. It's just a great card!

I sort of copied it, but I just made two windows and used one of the new stamps that I love! I spent a good amount of time coloring the whole background even though a lot is covered up. It was just so much fun to color all of those flowers.

I made it into a birthday card, since it is my birthday today :) It's really a shame that it's so hard to capture glitter on picture. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and embossed it with some clear hologram glitter to make it sparkle in the light. It's really pretty! I wish I had thought of it earlier, then I would have embossed the flowers too with the same glitter. Maybe next time. I think the windows are such a great way to show off pretty background stamps, I will definitely use this design more times.

  1. This is stunning! And I'm not going to lie, I'm really surprised and super flattered that you chose one of my cards as inspiration :) you've absolutely put mine to shame though!! The colouring itself is gorgeous, but up against the white stitched window it looks fabulous :)

    PS Happy Birthday!! :)

    1. Thank you <3 I really loved your card, thanks for the inspiration! I'll be re-using the idea more than once :)

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…
