Red Glintz Jingle Bell Card by Jo Herbert

Hi All, Jo here and welcome to today's blog post and youtube tutorial. Over on Facebook we have group   where we hold themed monthly challenges where just by entering your creations in the album you can be in the running for a $15 gift card. The month of November we created everything Christmas / Sparkles related. I have used the Red Glitz embossing powder stamped with the Tim Holtz Carved Christmas stampset.  I have kept today's card rather simple and let the Red Glitz do all the work. I started off with ink blending with Lawn Fawn Inks Merman and Peacock on white cardstock panel. I heat embossed the image , added some twine and sequins to finish the card off. This card can be easily mass produced and just by adding some embossing glitter, poder you too can add a WOW factor to your cards. ——— FIND ME ONLINE——— Facebook: Instagram:

''Snow much thanks'' sparkling Christmas card by Ola

Hi there, It is Ola for WOW! Embossing Powders. Today I am sharing with you a card I have created using WOW! Embossing glitters called ''Sparkles''. Before I begin showing and talking you through my blog post let me share little memory of mine. I am from small town in small Country called Lithuania. In Lithuania, a flat country overlooking the Baltic See, the climate is semi - continental, with freezing Winter and warm Summers. Winter is cold and dark with temperature always bellow 0C and landscapes always snow-covered from the end of November to mid-March. In my home town we celebrate Christmas in January not December and in addition it is always white Christmas. So, my card is reminder of Winter days back home. Here it is: To see video tutorial on how I create this card please visit my YouTube Channel Crafty Ola or click on video link below: Thank you for stopping by and wishing you White Christmas everyone!

Thanksgiving is over for the United States, so it’s now, finally, time to turn our attention to Christmas, which is just under a month away! Where has the time gone?   For my second guest post, I thought I’d bring some bling to Christmas and do a mixed media project for some holiday home decor. I had a 12-inch wooden ornament which I first painted with white gesso, then added white crackle paste and set it aside overnight to dry. I find the crackles are more pronounced the longer you let it dry naturally. I then took some Finnabair Metallique paints in Light Patina and Mermaid Teal, then dry brushed just a bit of Blue-Violet and Blue-Gold Opal Magic paint on top for some gold shine.   While all that was drying, I prepared my Prima chipboard pieces. I used embossing ink all over the front, then sprinkled them with the WOW! Metallic Gold Sparkle powder. Such a lovely shine in the light!   I carefully glued down my pieces on top of the ornament in the pattern shown. Some
