Snow Angel

I have a wintery project to share with you today.... a snow angel!

I decided to use rather a lot of Embossing Powder on her... and I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I cut the body and wings from chipboard, then triple embossed them. Chipboard or any kind of thick substrate is a good idea when triple embossing, as thin card etc can buckle and warp!
I used three layers of white Ultra High powder, then sprinkled a tiny amount of Diamond White glitter powder, and a tiny bit of Silver Ultra High onto the last, hot layer....

The Diamond White gives a fab sparkle, and the bigger granules of the Ultra High powder give the amazing dotty effect! The whole body and wings are also nice and glossy due to the melted powder, which just adds to the effect!
I also created a heart using the heart mould, and Primary Apple Red Ultra High Powder...

It hangs from a delicate chain, wrapped around the arms of my angel!
I sketched and coloured her face, and added a twisted wire and crystal halo as a finishing touch....

I hope you like her!
Take care,
Trish xx

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…
