Holiday Wishes Card with Dana

Hello, everyone!
It's Dana here and I'd like to share holiday card with Silver/Gold theme of this month.

To start, I stamped winter images onto white card stock and colored them in with Copic markers. I die cut them out using coordinating dies and let them aside for next step.

I die cut tag from two pieces of bristol papers and ink blended one of them with distress oxide inks. I then die cut another one with border die. I scribbled WOW! Embossing Pen along with its edge and sprinkled WOW! Unicorn Magic Embossing Glitter and heat set it.

After I mounted small pieces on the tag, I stamped sentiment with WOW! Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed it with WOW! Red Glitz Embossing Powder.

For background, I stenciled sun rays with WOW! Clear Embossing Ink using mini sponge dauber onto woodgrain card stock. I then sprinkled WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder and heat set them.

Then, I popped up tag onto stenciled panel using foam tape.

I embellished my card with red crystals h…

Gold Decorative Ornaments with Gemma

I love to use gold and silver embossing powders on my Christmas cards, as it makes them look extra special.

For my card today, I used some Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder to emboss some of the beautiful Pretty Pink Posh Decorative Ornaments onto vellum.

I wanted to colour these with copics, but as it’s not advised to colour on embossing with alcohol markers, I instead coloured the images on the reverse side. This does mute the colours slightly, so I used stronger tones than I might have used if colouring normally.

Once the images were coloured in and the ink dry on the vellum, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.
Next, I die cut a white card stitched rectangle from the Heffy Doodle Metric Stitched rectangle die set. On this, I heat embossed a greeting from the Decorative Ornaments set with the same Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder.
To add some more gold accents to the card, I used a mix of gold perfect pearls and water to flick the panel with droplet…

The pale moon - a canvas project by Riikka Kovasin

Moikka! This month's theme of silver and gold inspired me to go celestial with my challenge project and I continue that theme in my post. Although I use gold in my projects, if I'd need to choose between the two I'd definitely go with silver. It's the same with the sun and the moon - if I could choose my daily schedule, it would be that of an owl. I like night time and would love to stay up late and sleep in but that isn't possible with two kids and a job with day shifts. 

So with those inspirations - silver and moon - I created this canvas piece. I couldn't decide between a crescent moon and a full one so I did both! They are done using different Wow products so you get two ideas in the price of one. 
I also had a very clear idea of the black background in my mind. I wanted it to have a blue glaze on top so it would look dark and almost black, but put it on an angle and you see the blue hues. So I used translucent powders on top of black layer to create that …

Oh, silver! | Zsoka Marko

Hi there crafty friends,
Zsoka here with you today to share the latest cards I've created for WOW! Embossing Powder. Our theme this month is Silver/Gold and I've created two cards with gold powders for our Facebook challenge so I've decided I'd challenge myself and make silver ones for this blog post!
Also, I really don't like silver! Not sure why, I used to like it as a teenager, in fact I hated gold. But for the past 20 or so years I've sided with gold. I think silver is just too cold for me. Anyway, lie I said, I challenged myself and used it anyway! Here's how the cards turned out:

I buy stamps/dies every month, I can't help it. But I haven't had time to use all of them for the past couple of months, so I try to at least use them for my WOW assignments because other than the embossing powders, I can really use whatever supplies I want, and I love that freedom! So I've combined a few new favorites with some old ones on these cards!

First of a…

A Christmas Wreath By Jaine

I love to create wreaths at Christmas time and including them on a card is so classic. If you don't have winter foliage stamps why not look at some of your other stamps for images to adapt. Using the right colours and a bit of sparkle almost any image could be adapted into a wreath for Christmas.

I started simply by lightly drawing my circle on a piece of card. I had a roll of tape at hand so used that.

For the first layer I stamped and embossed directly onto the card with Glamour Green Embossing Glitter, the small leaf from a set by Pretty Pink Posh called Autumn Blooms.

For my next layer I stamped, embossed and die cut (the set also has matching dies which makes this part so much easier) some of the other foliage shapes. I chose Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter and as I didn't have a red embossing glitter I created my own by mixing some Coral Beach Sparkles with a little Bonding Powder.

I arranged the pieces on my wreath and glued them down.

The biggest revelation to me wh…

December Guest Designer | Rubeena Ianigro

How lucky are we to have a very special Guest Designer join us for the month of December. Talking about ending the year with a BANG! Rubeena is going to WOW you with some amazing creations this month. 
I’m Rubeena from A Rare Ruby. I live in NJ with my husband Steve, our newborn daughter and two clingy kittens, Jack and Smudge. I have been papercrafting on and off since 2014, and I love being able to express myself through what I create. My style continues to develop as I learn new things and am inspired by other artists and creative people. I love to play with cute critter stamps, florals, and all kinds of sentiments that uplift! I have an obsession with watercoloring, paint splatters, word die-cuts, heat-embossing sentiments on black cardstock, and dimensional cards. When I’m not making cards, I like to explore coloring mediums, acrylic painting, alcohol ink art, making bead bracelets and other jewelry, DIY home decor projects, and, of course, spending time with family and my cats.
