Christmas Emboss Resist with Gemma

Today I have two cards to share using the emboss resist technique. I love this technique for creating backgrounds for cards.

For the first card, I cut a panel of white card and added stitching detail using the Lawn Fawn Just Double Stitching rectangle dies.

Using the Pretty Pink Posh Leaves & Berries stencil, I inked through the stencil with WOW clear embossing ink. I then added WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder and heat set.

Next, I blended colour all over the panel with distress oxide inks in picked raspberry and candied apple. The embossing will resist the ink and stay white. I used a paper towel to remove any ink that was sitting on the embossing. 

I flicked the panel with water for droplet details, then adhered the panel to my card base.

I repeated these steps for my second card, but used some blue cardstock, tumbled glass and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks, and WOW Silver Pearl embossing powder.

To finish both cards, I die cut the Pretty Pink Posh Season's Greetings Script die from white card several times, adhering together to make stacked sentiments. I then added a top layer die cut from glitter card. I also added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels around the card for more Christmas sparkle.

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
