Box for Christmas Gift

Hello, crafty friends!
It is time to start Christmas preparation, so I've created a gift box for our monthly challenge. At first I made a simple box out of watercolour paper, size 10*15 cm, 5 cm tall. Then I cut pieces of paper the size of the sides and the lid, stamped with Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad the confetti from Clear Stamp Set Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) and embossed with WC06 Metallic Platinum embossing powder. I glued them to the box and sprayed with red spray here and there.
Also with this powder I decorated chipboard stars and the frame. To create some embellishments I stamped snowflakes and star from the same stamp set with red pigment ink and covered with WA01 Clear Gloss SF and then fussy cut them. The chipboard sentiment is embossed with two layers of WL01 Bright White powder for enamel look.

Also I created some texture with the stencil and paste. I decorated the box with some lace, die cuts, berries, chipboard, a flower, tiny bell. For the snowy look I applied some white acrylic paint here and there and white texture paste with sand on the edges.
So one box awaits for a gift already!
Where to Buy:


  1. Wouldn't you just love to receive a gift in this gorgeous box! I love the white with the red accents and all the texture. A beautiful creation Victoria. x

  2. This is stunning who ever gets it is going to keep it for sure :)

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:


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…

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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…
