Quick and WOW Gift Box - Guest Joanne


Today I am sharing this quick and easy gift idea.  I found these wonderful metal tins at my local Joann's store and bought a package to play with.  I didn't know what I was going to do with them but I loved the size and shape and thought they would be wonderful decorated in some way.  I was assuming with paper initially but then I had a thought.  I was looking through my supplies and came across this beautiful WOW embossing glitter called Frozen Berries.  I thought it could be beautiful as the cover to my box but wasn't sure about embossing directly on the tin.  Well it wasn't only possible, it was really easy and quick to create this adorable box.  It would make a great gift alone or filled with something fun.
I started with the top of the lid and generously pushed it around on my embossing ink pad placed it on my craft table on a piece of copy paper as usual and poured the glitter all over it.  I then carefully picked it up using the side  as I wasn't embossing these yet.  I cleaned up the extra embossing glitter and then placed the lid on the paper again.  I ran my heat tool over it until it was all set.  I repeated this process twice on each of the surfaces I embossed, which was the top and side of the lid and the side of the base being careful to not get any glitter stuck where the lid goes over the top of the box.  

I completed my box with several paper roses from my stash and a butterfly I created by covering some vellum with the embossing ink and then sprinkling the same embossing glitter on it and heat setting.  I used an old butterfly punch from Stampin' Up to cut out my critters and die cut the center from my Pippi Butterfly die set from Memory Box Company.  I layered the two butterfly shapes, adhereing them only the center and then placed the body in the center.  I cheated with this little bit and cut it from some gold glitter paper.

I do hope you enjoyed my posts this month.  It was so much fun to create these projects and share them with WOW fans.  Please don't hesitate to reach out to me on my blog at www.perkypennypaperarts.com if you have any questions about these projects.  I am always happy to help if I can :)

Cheers for now and happy Crafting,

Joanne

Shimmer Hearts with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using this month’s theme of Favourite WOW stamps. I used the Layered Hearts stamp set with neutral ultra shimmer embossing powder to create a pretty one layer card.


I began by lightly drawing a grid on a piece of card in pencil. This helps to keep everything lined up when stamping and will be easy to erase later.

Next, I chose some Altenew dye inks in the following colours:
  • Coral Berry
  • Fresh Lemon
  • Bamboo
  • Forest Glades
  • Volcano Lake
  • Dusk
  • Hydrangea
  • Puffy Heart

I used a stamp positioner to stamp each heart, then embossed with Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder. The dye ink stays wet just long enough to emboss but you can only do this process one heart at a time - stamp first, then emboss, and so on until the pattern is finished.


I then erased the pencil lines from around the embossed hearts, and adhered the panel to my card base.

I decided not to add a sentiment on this card as I like the pattern uninterrupted. It also makes the card more versatile as it could be used for different occasions, as needed.


Have a lovely day,
Gemma

Sparkling Birthday Card with Dana

Happy Sunday, WOW! friends!

It's Dana here and I'd like to share sparkling birthday card with you today.


To start, I stenciled balloons onto navy card stock with WOW! Sparkles using Studio Katia Birthday Balloons Duo Stencil.


For this, I mixed texture paste with WOW! Peachy Keen and Crushed Ice Sparkles and let them dried.


I trimmed down vellum strip and stamped a sentiment from WOW! Born to Sparkle Stamp Set with WOW! Embossing Ink. I splattered WOW! Metallic Gold Rich Embossing Powder and heat set it.


As a final touch, I embellished panel with Studio Katia Crystal Rainbow Sequins here and there.

Hope you enjoyed this card. And don't forget to stop by our July Monthly Challenge at Facebook Fan Group for more inspiration and join with us!

Happy crafting!
