Mixed Media ATC Trio

Hey sweet crafty friends!

I hope you are all doing well. It's Fran with your dose of WOW! inspiration and I have some micro mini wonders to share with you today in the form of ATC's (artist trading cards). I have used a selection of  WOW embossing powders to create a variety of textures and effects.
And here is my set of three ATC's together. I wanted to create a set which matched in terms of colour scheme and accents but were all individual.
The base for this one stared out as an old postcard which I cut down prepared with gesso. I stamped the circular stamp from the Spark 'n' Shine set all over the card then adhered pen nibs and pieces of crumpled Copper Fab Foil onto one of the stamped circles to fashion the main feature of the card. Textures have been created with the use of micro beads, Copper Ultra High and Blueberry Cheesecake embossing powder which I melted over the beads.  
For the second ATC I used the same postcard, again cut down to form the base card and added gesso to prime the surface once again. using some mica spray to which I added Green Pearl and Peppermint Tea embossing powders which gave a beautiful subtle shine to the background then just layered embellishments and highlighted with Ultra Rich Gold powder.

The resin heart embellishment has been made using the WOW! Hearts mould and Melt It powder mixed with Silver Stratosphere embossing powder. I've finished the card off with a border stamp from the Pick 'n' Mix set.
For the final card I used a piece of scrap packaging as a base which I layered with denim scraps, tiny wooden shapes, old brads and gems. I covered with gesso to allow my paint spray to adhere properly then added Copper Ultra High, Chocolate Caramel Pearl and Primary Blue Tang powders into the wet spray once again and melted. For the main embellishment I have used a leave stamp from the Flights of Fancy stamp set which I stamped onto card and coloured with a paint spray. To create a beautiful iridescent two tone effect I melted Pearl Green powder on top of the wet spray.


Have a wonderfully creative day

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…
