Guest Designer Ardyth

Good morning! It's Ardyth here from MASKerade and I'm excited to be back with another card as this month's Creative Guest.

This time, I was inspired by the current Muse challenge and I made an elegant Christmas card.

I embossed the big, loopy Mama Elphant sentiment with Metalline Kiwi Krush embossing powder - it has a gold shimmer in it that gives my 'greenery' an elegant look.

Next, I die cut two doves (and their wings) and covered them with WOW! Embossing ink before pouring a bit of Mayan Glintz  on their bellies and then covering the rest of them with Inca Glintz. These two powders also have some shimmer and gave the birds a bit of colour and a pearly finish.

I created a mat for my card that perfectly matched the green sentiment, by trimming a panel and then inking up the edges with embossing ink. I poured Kiwi Krush around it and heated it until it was melted and smooth. It's important to have your heat gun quite hot to minimize warping.

I glued that panel directly to my card base, then added my focal panel. I popped up the birds with foam tape.

I created a quick video showing how I made this card, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Your doves are really pretty Ardyth and the green mat and the leaves and sentiment look perfect in that strong shade of green and give great contrast. x

  2. Love this card, Ardyth.
    Beautiful design.

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…

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…
