WOW Embossing Powder Guest Post – Safe Keeping

Time for a little sneaky peek! I’ve got a guest blog post over at the WOW! Embossing Powder blog today so I’m just dropping by to give you a sneaky look at it.

I’ve called it ‘Safe Keeping’ and it is one in my series of altered matchboxes.

 If you want to see the whole project then pop on other to the WOW! Embossing Powder blog.

Catch you later.

SCACD Blank Canvas Collection #2 Blog Hop!

Who is up for some new stamps and a Blog Hop?

Oh yeah new stamps time! It’s the new Susana’s Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) Blank Canvas Collection #2, did you spot the original release in the February issue of Craft Stamper recently? One lovely make was even from our very own Elaine Hughes (the first stop on this hop – if you want to start from the beginning).

So the new collection of stamps and dies are still a lovely medley of inspiration for beginners and experts alike and for all your mixed media, journalling, papercrafts and altering passions. The stamps are available in the UK and internationally from Quixotic Paperie and for USA then pop on over to SCACD.

You can also find the dies at Quixotic Paperie and SCACD of course!

I thought I would go a little bit altering and mixed media for my sample, don’t you just love those steampunk wings?

So if you haven’t guessed – it is an altered matchbox and I’ve gesso-ed, added old book pages and washi tape with some extra stamping for good measure!

I’ve stamped part of one of the sentiments onto some acetate so that I could curve it slightly around the edge of the matchbox.

I’m thinking this might make a fun serious to do – little altered matchboxes with the SCACD Blank Canvas Collection? What do you think?

Ok so you have some more hopping to do! 

Next on your journey is lovely Melanie at Paper Blessings.

Have fun.
