Crochet Emboss Resist with Gemma

Today I'm excited to share a card using a stamp set that I designed for WOW Embossing! It’s called Simply Sew. I used the November Facebook challenge of Emboss Resist technique for my card.

On a panel of card, I used WOW clear embossing ink to stamp the ball of wool from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set. I then heat embossed it with WOW Opaque Bright White embossing powder.

I chose a rainbow of distress inks - picked raspberry, candied apple, squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers and wilted violet.

I blended ink over the panel. Where the embossed wool is, it will resist the ink and stay white. I then used a small brush to paint over areas of the wool with water. This will remove some of the ink in those areas, for a bleached look.

On another piece of card, I used the Lawn Fawn Just Double Stitching Rectangles set to add some detail. I love that stitching dies work so well with the Simply Sew set!

I stamped a crochet hook and stitch marker with Versafine Onyx Black ink on the panel, along with a sentiment from the set. I then heat embossed them with WOW Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing glitter.

I added both panels to my card base, using some foam tape to pop up the rainbow wool panel.

I hope you’ve enjoyed a look at the WOW Simply Sew stamp set, using the emboss resist technique.

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:


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…

Happy memories - embossed background

I must admit I was having a bit of a problem coming up with a memory keeping project for this months post. I have been making almost only cards lately and had a bit of a problem filling a whole layout. I do make some layouts and lately I've been partial to letter sized layouts because the format remind me of cards and makes it easier for me to plan the page. This time I made a A4 sized layout because it's easier for me to find the page protectors in regular stores here. I used some good cardstock that doesn't warp much when you heat it or add water since i knew I would emboss it.
Here's what I did. I picked the pretty Chrysanthemum background stamp and embossed it in Silver Pearl embossing powder three times in a row across the background. I must admit I was more than a little inspired by Isha Guptas cards for her guest post earlier this week. I used distress inks in Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon and applied with an ink blending tool randomly over the embossed are…
