VIDEO: QUICK & Colourful Card with Erica

Hi guys! 
It's Erica back on the blog and YouTube channel with more rainbow-liciousness and sparkles! 

I have fallen HEADS OVER HEELS for Halo, and I have used it so much I'm nearly half way through it! I only got it about a month ago so this is definitely going to end up on my must-always-have-plenty list. I can not overstate how much I love this glitter powder!

So, something I've been doing a lot recently is making my own glitter card stock, but don't worry, this is not another one of those. For this card I am doing a similar technique, but we are going to add colour to the card directly and then add the Halo on top. Super easy! 

You can see in the VIDEO on the YouTube channel how I added the colours, but it is really easy and you can do this with whatever colour ink you have or prefer. I have simply swept the ink pad over the card stock, whilst using some little pieces of acetate to keep the sides clean. I love using acetate in the craft room as it's affordable, but most importantly it's re-useable as you can easily clean these off.

After I had added the colours, I used a mini MISTI to stamp up the sentiment 'You bring so much color to my world' in black on the white side. With that was done, I dabbed the Embossing Pad over the colours and then sprinkled the Halo all over it. This was then set with the heat gun and that was the card done! 


So, easy peasy, glitter me silly! 
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica

  1. I love the glittery stripes of colour and a great sentiment to go with it too. The Halo EP is a wonderful way to add some it Erica. 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
