Spring Scene with Gemma

Today I'm sharing a card inspired by the WOW Facebook Challenge theme, which is 'Nature'. This sweet scene die from Pretty Pink Posh is perfect for this theme. Embossing die cuts is a great way to add some sparkle and interest too.

I began by die cutting the Spring Scene die from Pretty Pink Posh several times. I'll layer some of these pieces together to add dimension.

I like to have a base layer to adhere the scene pieces to, so I used a die from the Hero Arts Infinity Circles die set to cut a circle the same size as the frame of the scene. I adhered the frame to this base layer.

Next, I added colour to the die cut scene pieces with distress oxides in tumbled glass, mowed lawn and lucky clover. I adhered the sky, grass, stems and leaf pieces to my base layer.

Using the beautiful Gemstone Trio of embossing glitters, I embossed the three flowers in different colours. I decided to add two layers of the embossing glitter to each flower. To do this, allow the first layer of embossing to cool, then re-ink with embossing ink, cover with more embossing glitter, then melt with the heat tool. This gives great coverage.

I adhered the embossed flowers on to another die cut layer to give more dimension, then added them to my scene. For the centre of the yellow flower, I used a copic marker to add colour. I used copics for the butterfly too, layering up for dimension then adding to my scene.

I then added two more of the circle frames to the scene. I also stamped a greeting from the Party Friends stamp set on the grass.

Next, I used one of the large dies in the Hero Arts Infinity Circles die set to create my circle card base. To do this, position the circle die over a pre-scored card base so the top of the die is above the score line. This keeps the fold in place - just die cut another circle to add over the top to hide the fold. To help the card base stand up, use a trimmer to cut a litte off the back of the card base, at the bottom edge. The straight edge will then stop the card from rocking.

I die cut a smaller circle from Lawn Fawn Spring Perfectly Plaid 6x6 paper, then adhered that and the Spring Scene to my card to finish.

Happy crafting,

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
