Young At Heart

Hello crafty friends I hope you're having a pleasant and productive July! I wanted to capture a touch of Summer with my DT inspiration this month and used a mixture of pretty pinks and sparkle for my multicolour embossing card.
I started with a piece of 13cm square white card. I stamped a heart from the Hearts and Twine Stamp set on a spare piece of card then cut out and attached as shown with some low tack tape. I then stamped J'adore towards the top of the card then sprinkled a mixture of Sweet Cheeks, Yum Yum Bubblegum and Hot Gossip over the top. I removed the excess and put it it a spare pot so I now have a bespoke colour!
Once I had melted the powders with my heat tool I then rubbed pink ink across the card then removed the heart stencil. I then stamped the same heart again directly on to the white space, added Hot Gossip Glitter then melted again with my heat tool.
I then used the Young At Heart Stamp Set with Metallic Silver Regular Powder and stamped part of the sentiment in the heart and the rest in the bottom right corner. I then formed a 'link'  between the two parts  by adding a line of dots with an embossing pen and adding silver powder on top.
Finally, I trimmed the card down to 12.5cm square, layered in a subtle silver mirri board then attached to a 13.5cm square card blank. I hope you like it!
You're sure to have fun with this challenge, enjoy!

  3. This is extremely pretty Sarah and I love the pink with the red embossing mixture and the way you have linked one sentiment to the other with the trail of silver embossed dots. The hearts are beautiful too. x

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…

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…

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…
