Smile...Summer is here!

Hello crafty friends, I hope the weather has been as good for you as it has been for us in the U.K.! I've had my windows wide open in my office as I was making my summer themed card, it helped to inspire me.

I started with white card for the background of this card which I stamped with various stamps from the Wall Art Stamp Set . I embossed them with Opaque Bright White powder and In The Pink glitter. I then used a stamp from the Hey Little Flower Stamp Set which I embossed with Bonding Powder then covered with Violet Fab Foil and ran through my laminator. I think spritzed the card with water and coloured with watered down pens, concentrating on the left hand side.

I stamped flowers on to white card and embossed with Heather and Misty Sky powders. I used an Embossing Pen in the centres to add a touch of In The Pink glitter. On the die-cut leaves I used the lettering from the Wall Art stamp with Oceanic powder. I covered white card with double-sided tape then sprinkled with Frosted Petals Sparkles and die-cut more leaves.

Finally I used In The Pink glitter across the centre of the card across the strips of double-sided tape then added a sentiment using a stamp from the Big Words Stamp Set and Violet Fab Foils.

I hope you like it and good luck with the challenge!

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.

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…
