Greatest Hits Embossed Background with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Pastels. I’ve gone for a slightly different take on the challenge, using a light colour of card stock and creating a clear embossed musical background for my card.


I cut a piece of Lawn Fawn Mermaid Card stock. With the WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder, I embossed a background using the Greatest Hits stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs.

I wanted the background to have an abstract feeling to it, so I used the Altenew Splatter stencil to add more details, embossing them with the clear embossing powder too.


Once I was happy with the background, I added some Evergreen Bough distress oxide ink to the edges of the embossed panel. I then adhered it to my card base.

I die cut some records and music notes from the Greatest Hits die set, along with the arm of the record player. I adhered those to my background with liquid glue.


For the sentiment, I used WOW Opaque White Superfine embossing powder to heat emboss a greeting on black. I adhered this to the card with foam tape.

An additional sentiment in the centre of the large record is a fun finishing touch.


Have a lovely day,
Gemma

  1. What a fabulous card Gemma and the clear embossed background shows up beautifully against the light blue background, and the record with the sentiment on the central label and the die cut needle arm over it, together with the notes and additional sentiment are really fun and brought back some happy memories of when I had my first record player back in the 1960's. x

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!

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 a
