Autumn is Calling with Gemma

I have an autumnal card to share today, using the wonderful Changer Lightening Effect powders. These additives are such fun to use and can give some different looks and textures to powders you already own. 

I began by inking some white card panels with the clear embossing ink, then embossing with three different powders - Kiwi Krush, Metalline Flame and Primary Apple Red.

Next, I created mixes of the embossing powders with each of the Changers Lightening Effect powders - Sheen, Glisten and Texture. I used a ratio of 1:1, mixing the powders in empty WOW pots. I embossed some more white card panels with these different mixes.

I used a die set from Hello Bluebird, called Fall Leaves, to die cut lots of leaves from each panel. I die cut the leaf veins from pearlescent brown card with stick-it adhesive on the reverse, to help with adhering them to the leaves.

On my card base, I arranged the leaves with some overlapping. I adhered them down with liquid glue, continuing until the card base was covered.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed a greeting from the Hello Bluebird Pumpkin Time stamp set using Copper embossing powder. 

I used a circle die to cut it out, then adhered it on a larger die cut circle, this time cut from the pearlescent brown card. I adhered this in the centre of my card to finish.

I love how different the leaves look just by using the Changers Lightening Effect additives. 

Have a lovely day,

  1. What gorgeous autumn colours Gemma, and instead of three pretty colours you have so many more using the Changers, and the leaves look great randomly used to cover the card and love the circular framed sentiment which works beautifully. x

  2. Spectacular card!
    the leaves look so realistic, and I love the glittery look.
    I am so excited about this Hop, I haven't tried WOW! products but they look wonderful! Thanks for sponsoring this hop!

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
