Pink Fresh Studio Rainbow Watercolour Card

Hi all, Jo here and welcome to my card creation where I play along with the "Rainbow" theme for the Wow! Embossing Powder Facebook Fan Group page monthly challenge -

The technique I have used today is a loose watercolouring method where I coloured outside the lines using rainbow colours from my Kuretake Gansai watercolour set. 

To start my card off I have heat embossed the Pinkfresh Studio Fleur 1 stampset with Metallic Platinum embossing powder on a watercolour cardstock panel. Once I have coloured in the image I have used a Copic marker C-3 to go around the edge of the whole image to make the image slightly pop.

The watercoloured image panel has been foam mounted on a top folding natural ivory card base. 

For the sentiment I have heat embossed with Ebony embossing powder on vellum cardstock which I have adhered down with glue dots.

 To finished the card off I have used rainbow sequins from Kat Scrappiness throughout the card.

I have made a video tutorial of my card making process.

Thanks for watching. 
Happy Papercrafting Hugs

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…
