VIDEO | ATCs with Texture and Sparkle

Hej Crafty Friends!

Have you already seen the WOW Monthly Challenge? Its all about colours and textures which is totally my jam!

(And there is something amazing to be won! So - Don't miss this opportunity!)

In todays post and Video (which is ready to watch *here* on the WOW Youtube Channel), I am creating a set of ATCs with some texture and sparkle.

Initially, I haven't been planning on a black/white, almost monochromatic result.. 

I have rather been thinking of black/white and added splashes of colour. But - that's something that can be picked up in one of my next projects :)

For todays ATCs, I have been cutting four 2,5x3,5 pieces of cardboard. On these cardboard pieces, I have glued pieces of patterned paper in the same size.

After that preparation has been done, I have been repeating following steps on the ATCs:

1. Adding stamping with the WOW "Wall Art" stamps and Archival Ink

2. Mixing Sparkles (Onyx Black/Brilliant Silver) with Ranger Texture Paste Transparent Gloss

3. Applying the Sparkle/Texture Paste mix with a palet knive through a stencil

In the drying time of the texture paste:

4. Cutting the Pinkfresh Studio "Reset" die cut into single words

5. Stamping the words with Black Archival Ink and heat embossing them with "Texture" Changers

6. Stamping the flowers with Embossing Ink, applying Primary Ebony/Metallic Silver and heat embossing them before cutting them with the coordinating dies.

7. Stamping the sentiment with Black Archival Ink and cutting them with the coordinating dies.

Last steps:

8. Arranging the die cuts on the ATCs 

9. Adding some black thread to be glued under the focal point

10. Glueing everything down. (Raising some parts with foam pads adds extra depth)

I really like how these ATCs turned out and cannot wait to give them away.

Thank you so much for watching!

Have a great day!

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
