Rainbow Stencil Stripes with Gemma

Rainbows always make a fun birthday card. For my card today, I’ve used a rainbow of embossing powders with a stripes stencil to create my background.

I chose the following embossing powders, using a pink instead of a purple as I don’t have a purple embossing powder in my collection:
  • Primary Apple Red
  • Metalline Flame
  • Opaque Pastel Yellow
  • Metalline Kiwi Krush
  • Angel Eyes
  • Metalline Dark Blue
  • Love is the Drug
I taped the Pretty Pink Posh Wide Stripes stencil over a piece of white card. As I wanted to emboss the lines in different colours, I temporary covered up all but the line I was working on so as not to add ink to more than one line at a time. 

I added embossing ink to a line, removed the stencil, then embossed with one of the rainbow colours. I repeated this process until all lines were embossed. This does take a little time but I love the results.

I adhered the embossed panel to my card, then worked on the other elements for my card.

For my sentiment, I stamped a greeting from the Pretty Pink Posh Party Friends stamp set between the stripes. I then added a die cut greeting from the PPP Balloon Shaker die above.

I copic coloured a fun image from the PPP Party Friends stamp set, adding it to the card with foam tape to finish.

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
