Knitting on Repeat with Gemma

Today I have a card to share using this month’s theme of ‘Repeat Patterns’. I’m using the WOW Simply Sew stamp set, teaming it with WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set to create my repeat pattern background.

I began by cutting a piece of blue cardstock to slightly smaller than my A2 notecard base.

Using a stamp positioner, I repeatedly stamped one of the larger images from the WPlus9 Knit Patterns stamp set over the background, using WOW clear embossing ink, then heat embossing with WOW Metalline Blue embossing powder. This opaque powder shows up beautifully on dark cardstock.

Once I’d embossed the whole panel, I used the Lawn Fawn Just Double Stitching rectangle die set to add some more detail to the panel. I then adhered it to my white card base.

Next, I die cut two tags using the Hello Bluebird Stitched Tag Builder die set. I embossed a sentiment from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set using the same Metalline Blue embossing powder. I used some silver coloured thread to tie the tags together, then adhered them on my card.

I stamped and copic coloured the ball of wool and knitting needles from the WOW Simply Sew stamp set. I cut them out and adhered them to my card with foam tape to finish. I love this monochromatic card, perfect for someone who loves to knit.

Have a lovely day,

  1. I love this knitting themed card Gemma, and the background repeat pattern goes beautifully with the sentiment tags and the wool and needles. x

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month! As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand. To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder. For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder. The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!

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
