Here's my Multi Colour Embossing post…

Hi Guys,

Marion here, I wanted to share a really simple card design with you using a multi coloured embossing technique. This technique is ages old, but the old ones are the best !!

You'll need a card blank, I always do mine tent fold, but your's can be whatever you choose.
Some circle dies, I used the Spellbinders large circles. and some spare card stock that matches your base card.
Start off by die cutting the smaller of the two circles out of scrap copier paper, then using your card stock, put the two circle dies together and die cut so you get a border.
Place the copier paper on top of your base card and hold down with a bit of washi tape.
Select some of the outline flower stamps from Hey little Flower, ink up each stamp with the WOW! Slow drying embossing pad and stamp the three different styles randomly in and around the circle, don't worry if you overlap, it adds to the effect, remove the copier paper.
Choose three different WOW! Embossing Powders, and pinch the first colour and sprinkle on the stamped area, shake off the excess and repeat with the second colour, on the third colour cover the area entirely, this will fill in all the gaps from the first two colours.
Heat set.

Adhere the die cut circle border, this will fit perfectly as you worked within the same die size.
Taking a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiment Stamps stamp and emboss on a piece of scrap card stock and cut into a banner, adhere with foam pads.
Using a glue pen where ever you want the Sparkles, sprinkle on, shake off the excess, stand back and ADMIRE !!!

Thanks everso for looking, if you have any questions you can E Mail me at

Have a great day !!
Marion 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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
