White on white - a sparkling card by Riikka

Heippa everyone! It's Riikka here today with a sparkling Christmas card. Well, you can so this kind of card otherwise, too, but I was thinking about snow and ice when I crafted this card. 
I enjoy all the seasons and have said frequently that I wouldn't cope without the drastic change of the seasons we experience here in Finland. During the summer time the sun doesn't set at all but naturally this means that during winter the sun doesn't rise at all. Even though I love the bright summer nights and the warmth then, my favorite season is winter. Unfortunately nowadays usually the winter isn't the kind I love - with snow and chilly temperatures, but more often slush and rain. But this card reminds me of those icy, chilly winters I love. Glistening snow and frost like diamonds!

I used a few different glistening and sparkling products in my make. There's foil, embossing glitter and Sparkles, too. If you want to know, how I made the card, please see the step by step…

Hello craft friends I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the festive season. It’s always nice to squeeze in another Christmas creation and I really enjoyed making this bauble card for this month’s DT inspiration.

I started by die-cutting a circle of white card which I then stamped a sentiment on and used the Wall Art Stamp around the edges. I inked over the stamped areas then embossed the card with Regular Clear Gloss embossing powder. While the powder was still warm I sprinkled Your Carriage Awaits Sparkles over the stamped areas then heated again with the heat tool.

I die-cut the reindeer and triple embossed them with two layers of Champers Embossing Powder and a light dusting of Metallic Gold Rich.

I then die-cut stars, stamped with the Starburst stamp then embossed with White Pearl Embossing Powder. I then sprinkled Bridal Sparkles on top while it was still warm and melted again with a heat tool.

After layering up all the elements I added some gems and dome stickers for …

WOW: Christmas Sparkle Tags

Hi Everyone Jo here and welcome to to today's fun tag creations playing with the fabulous Sparkle collection from WOW. With Christmas coming up my family loves to give gifts to the people that have touch our lives in so many ways.  I had so much fun playing with this glitter collection.

To make these tags I have used the MFT tag builder blueprints 2 die set. Die cut using the Christmas Tree & Candy Cane dies in the center of each tags. Place a wide red line double sided tape and behind each die cut shape. From the front I sprinkled and burnished with my fingers the glitter collection. This die cut also has tag toppers to add an extra layer and element to tags.

TIP: Place a scrap piece of paper behind each time you do the glitters to capture the left overs to funnel back in the jars.

 My cardstock of choice is  Kraft & thick white card bases. To add a bit of pattern I have also used the MFT Birthday Blowout 6 x 6 Paper Pack. 
For the sentiments I chose from the Wplus9 Hand…

Christmas Card

Hello this is Laurence (laury55) today with a Christmas card. We still have some time until Christmas but we are all very busy in December and preparing your cards in advance will reduce your stress later. My Christmas card is quite simple and may be easily duplicated
1) I covered a scrap of paper with WOW metallic gold powder, heat embossed and used dies for the letters.
2) I cut 2 triangles for the trees, the second one is covered with adhesive. I applied WOW Oceanic Embossing on the first one and WOW Santorini sparkles on the second one.
3) I stamped directly on my background paper and heat embossed with WOW gold rich sparkle powder.

Thank you for your visit. I hope you will join our current challenge. Here's the fabulous products Laury used on her gorgeous project - 

Merry Christmas - Watercolour Card by Susanne

Hi my dear crafty friends!

I have a Christmas card with you to share! It's never too early to start, so you don't have to hurry in December. This card is really easy to recreate and it can be made with nearly every kind of stamp for any occasion.

I started by stamping a pattern with one of the leaves from the "Flights of Fancy" stamp set. I embossed it with Gold Rich Powder. I did the same to a piece of vellum.

I coloured some of the leaves with my Gansai Tambi watercolours. But any kind of watercolour will work for this resist technique.

I cut a "Merry Christmas" from cardstock which was covered with double sided tape. This is an easy way to foil your die cuts! Just expose the sticky side and press the foil onto it. Rub it gently with your fingers. I used WOW! Fab Foil Gold.

Finally I build up my card. I cut the background with a stitched frame die, added some gold splatters (Aztec Metallics from ColourCraft) and adhered it to the card base. The vellum is…
