Snowy Textures using WOW! White Puff Powder with Ankita

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a very snowy winter scene which I made using the WOW! White Puff embossing powder. This powder is heaven for anyone who wants to create a snow scene with lots of texture to it. I started by created a background using the Stacked Edges dies from Pretty Pink Posh and created a winter sweater argyle print with it.

I stamped my images which are from Hello Bluebird Frosty Friends stamp set on a piece of copic friendly cardstock and colored them all in using my copic markers. I die cut white cardstock using Hillside borders die from Lawn Fawn and stamped WOW embossing ink all over it and heat embossed with the White Puff Powder. It created the snowy scene for my snowmen.

Using the Charlie's Alpha dies I die cut the word Joy using Red Glitter paper and crafty foam. I adhered all the elements together using foam tape and liquid glue. 

I finally mounted the argyle panel on a 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches top folding card base made from Neenah Solar White Cla…

Stroke of Midnight - an album cover by Riikka

Hi there! It's Riikka here today to share a sparkling creation with you! It's a dark but glimmering cover with mixed media touches. 
You all know that the theme this month is the Sparkles and Christmas? I went just with the first one. My original idea was to incorporate the two but then I get carried away with my idea of the glitter paste and how marvelous that would look on top of black and... well, you can see the result. Not so much "Christmassy", yes? Although the glitter I used in the background is called "Stroke of Midnight" so maybe this cover is my interpretation of the winter night sky during Christmas? 

I keep telling that I'm not a glitter person as such, but who am I kidding?! A bit of glitter and shine fits to most projects and like I wrote in the beginning, pairing it with black usually does the trick. A black surface makes the colors sing and lets the glimmer sparkle even more. It's all got to do with contrasts - a dark shadow lets t…

Christmas Plaid with Gemma

Today I have two Christmas cards to share, using some beautiful embossing powders and glitters from WOW.

I love cards where the sentiment takes centre stage. I have a fun sentiment set from Hello Bluebird called 'Tis the Season', so decided to create some embossed backgrounds for the sentiments to go on.

I stamped the C&9th Plaid background stamp onto white card with the WOW embossing ink. I then embossed it with Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine embossing powder, using the fabulous new dual heat embossing tool.

To add the plaid lines, I used a beautiful embossing glitter called Vintage Candy Cane, perfect for Christmas projects.

I created a second panel, using Metallic Silver embossing powder and Pacific Wave embossing glitter.
I trimmed the panels down to be 2.5 inches high, added a thin black card strip at the top, then adhered them each to the bottom of a white card base. You should be able to get two cards from each embossed panel.

I stamped the large sentiment at the top …

Getting Ready For Christmas by Jaine

I'm not really sure what happened, only a few weeks ago it felt like Summer, but I find myself in November and forced to think of Christmas projects already!!  There's nothing like being caught out!

At the end of this month I'll be taking part in a Christmas market so I need quick makes which are easy to do in numbers. I made a start on a design which worked for Christmas cards or tags.

For my background I thought it would be easier to keep to one colour, so I used a Distress Ink blended over the background and two different stamps over the top (a script stamp and trees) again stamped with the same ink.

With this background totally dry, I again used the tree stamp but this time used the Embossing pad so I could use Cloud 9 Embossing powder.

To add to my card front, I stamped a deer and the word Joy using Hot Gossip and Metallic Platinum.

The die cut stars were also given the Cloud 9 treatment.

I think it's going to work well on the tags. Are you going into Christmas m…
