Embossing Glitter Florals with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Embossing Glitters. Using glitter embossing for stamp outlines is a lovely way to add a touch of sparkle to a card.

On a piece of WOW Superior Smooth cardstock, I stamped images from the Pretty Pink Posh Peonies stamp set using WOW clear embossing ink. I then embossed the images with WOW Pacific Wave embossing glitter.

I decided to colour the flowers with my Faber Castell polychromos pencils, continuing the blue theme. I left the leaves white for a break in colour.

Once all my flowers were coloured, I die cut the panel down with a MFT Stitched Mod Rectangle, then adhered it to my card base.

I embossed a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Floral Hearts set on black card with WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder. I die cut it with a sentiment strip die, then adhered to my card with foam tape.

To finish, I added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels in Blue Lagoon and Cornflower around the card. These match the colours of the flowers and embossing glitter perfectly.

Have a lovely day,


  1. This is so pretty in the shades of blue Gemma and the blue glitter embossing really adds that extra bit of interest, also love the curved and stitched shape you have given it. A beautiful card. x

  2. I love this beautiful blue and white card.

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…
