It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...

  Happy Saturday all of you crafty peeps!
  It is that time of year again when our crafty goodness can be turned into gifts, and cards, so lets take a peek at what the gals from Team Glitter Girls are up to!
 
First up we have Jen Matott.  She made a beautiful Altered Gift Tin and Necklace. 
This is what Jen had to say about her project!
"In the spirit of Christmas, I wanted to create a gift for a girl friend of mine. 
I used an empty cigar tin that I had found, and covered it with patterned papers. 
I wanted to pretty up the edges so that the original paint did not show.  I
dabbed on VersaMark with a dauber and added Regular Metallic Silver powders. 
They melt so smooth an coat the metal perfectly!  
 
To create the necklace, I used an Ideology Facet and cut out a piece of
patterned paper for the back. Once it was adhered, I used the dauber again and
coated the back and sides with VersaMark.  The silver WOW powder created a metal
look and finished this piece!  It's ready to give!" 




Here is Jens supply list:
WOW Embossing power in Regular Metallic Silver
VersaMark
Patterned Papers, bling, and die cuts: Creative Imaginations
Tin
Velvet ribbon
Ideology Facet
Rub on: Basic Grey
Adhesive: Xyron
What a great idea, and so creative!  It is so fun to have crafty friends!
 
 
Now, lets take a peek at some simple holiday cards that
Jenifer Cowles created using WOW embossing powders!
 

  Jenifer made some Christmas cards in silver and gold tones.   She used the Metallic Gold Rich Ultra High and the Metallic Silver regular embossing powder with the Brocade, Deck the Halls and the Merry and Bright Stamp Sets. She also used some vellum and May Arts ribbons, and even did a few stitches with her sewing machine as well.  I think I also see some border punches too!
So cute, and simple to re create!
 
Now take a look at this cute Christmas card from Tanisha!
Tanisha shares her story about which stamp to use, and i love it! 
 They are all so cute, it is impossible to choose! ;)

Tanisha admits, "I couldn't decide which stamp in the Merry and Bright Christmas set to use, so I used all of them. I left the back of the stamps on the packaging material, inked, and then stamped onto cardstock. I used a brayer to help evenly distribute the image and then coated with different colors of WOW! Embossing Powder."
  That, my friends is the way to get it done!  I love it!!!  Good idea Miss Tanisha!

These are the products Tanisha used:
Merry and Bright Christmas Stamp Set
Deck The Halls Stamp Set
Cable Car Red Embossing Powder
California Sunshine Embossing Powder
Tea Garden Green Embossing Powder
Black Glint Embossing Glitter
 
Those are some darn cute Christmas ideas!
 But just in case you have a birthday before December 25th, Patti made a darling card for a happy day celebration!

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!
Finally, I added beach in…

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 around the square adding in some t…

I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are.
