Winter Woodland with Gemma

I love to make my Christmas cards each year and using embossing powders is a great way to add a little WOW. For my card today, I used the WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder to create a tone on tone background winter woodland scene.

I cut two pieces of coloured card stock, used some tape to keep them together, then die cut them with a Heffy Doodle Metric Stitched rectangle.

Next, I stamped solid images from the Pretty Pink Posh Winter Woodland and Elegant Holly stamp sets, using WOW clear embossing ink. I then heat embossed them with WOW Clear Gloss embossing powder. I love the look of tone on tone embossing for adding interest to a card.

I adhered them to a card base, then added a thin strip of metallic gold card to bridge the gap between the two pieces of card.

Next, I die cut a smaller stitched rectangle from white card, then used the same die to cut it down again to create a shorter rectangle. I used WOW Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder to add a sentiment from the Pretty Pink Posh Penguin Pals stamp set.

I layered the panel over some metallic gold card, then adhered it to my card. I added some copic coloured images from the Pretty Pink Posh Winter Woodland and stamped the snow image directly on the panel to complete the scene. Some Pretty Pink Posh Pearl White jewels are a lovely finishing touch.

Have a lovely day,

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
