Fireworks Celebration with Gemma

Fireworks always look beautiful as embossed images on a dark background and they are perfect for celebration cards. For my card today, I used the theme of gold and silver to create an embossed stencil background.

I began with a piece of light purple cardstock, then blended on distress oxide ink in Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire. I used my heat tool to dry the ink on the panel so it was ready for embossing.

Next, I inked over the panel with clear embossing ink and the Pretty Pink Posh Fireworks stencil. I first sprinkled some of the Metallic Silver embossing powder in areas of the embossing ink. I removed the excess, then covered the rest of the embossing ink with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder before heat setting. This gives a nice mix of gold and silver fireworks, although I'd probably add a little more silver next time so it was more of a contrast.

I adhered the panel to my card base, then added the Pretty Pink Posh Celebrate Shaker die cut on top. I layered three of the die cuts together to get a stacked sentiment. 

To finish, I added the wine glasses image from the Pretty Pink Posh Happy New Year stamp set. 

Have a lovely day,

  1. I love the embossed firework design on that pretty blue background Gemma and love the way you have framed the sentiment and add the celebratory glasses. A brilliant card. x

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
