Hello, dear friends!
Can you believe it is December already? It is high time to unpack your Christmas decoration and create greeting cards for all your beloved ones. I love making cards and here is a new one with amazing Wow! products for our "Winter" challenge.
As usual, I created custom background by stamping with  Wow Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad confetti stars and snow from Clear Stamp Set Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) and embossed with WK14 Frozen embossing powder. Then I applied some clear texture paste with a stencil and added some pearlescent sprays.
Then I cut the window out of paper and embossed it with WK14 Frozen powder. Also I decorated chipboard elements for the window with the same powder. Then I added clear acetate to the backside of the window and created the shaker, filling it with sequins, glitter, beads etc.
I glued simple flower arrangement and embellished it with die-cut flourishes, which are covered with WS103 Mistletoe Magic and WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powders. 
The sentiment from Clear Stamp Set Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) is also embossed with WS103 Mistletoe Magic.
Also I stamped a few snowflakes, embossed with WL09R Colour Blend - Blueberry Cheesecake powder and fussy cut them. 
A closer look at the shaker - it is like a window to the street and you can see a child knocking on the door.

Guest Design Team Post: Emma Godfrey (Giveaway Closed!)


Hi everyone,

It’s Emma Godfrey here with a stylish (well I think so!) gift idea.

I’ve created a piece of art to fit inside an IKEA frame – perfect for a personalised present. 

I did this by first making a simple mixed media background with ink stenciled through sequin waste and layering paints using a brayer. I then stamped WOW French Music Clear Stamp Set with a grey ink pad, and one of the triangles from WOW Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) Clear Stamp Set with a blue ink pad.

I embossed the WOW Hexagons Clear Stamp Set with WOW Metallic Platinum Embossing Powder, the WOW Flights Of Fancy Clear Stamp Set with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and the little dots from WOW Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) Clear Stamp Set with WOW Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powder. I also sprinkled some WOW Platinum and Earthtone Pepper Embossing Powders randomly onto the background (and heated them from underneath so that they didn’t blow away). I added some white paint dots to lighten the background up.

I die-cut the word and leaves from cardstock that was covered with a double sided sticky sheet. After peeling the sticky sheet away, I covered the leaves and letters with WOW Celebration Sparkles Glitter. I positioned everything in the frame and then stuck it all together.




I hope you like the project. See you soon!

Merry & Bright Gift Bag

Hey crafty friends!

I hope you are all fine and wrapped up from the cold, wet weather. It's Fran with you today to share some creativity! Here in the UK it has been so miserable outdoors so I wanted to brighten things up with a merry and bright festive gift bag.


 

 I love this non traditional colour scheme, adding pinks, fresh aqua and chartreuse green to white.

The background of the bag has been stencilled using a piece of die cut 12x12 paper with a snowflake design, then spreading heavy gesso through to create texture. Next I sprinkled Bluetiful embossing powder into the wet gesso and melted to leave this fabulous semi transparent glossy aqua finish then sprayed a matte pink mist over the top to give a resist effect with the glossy embossed area.






For the doily which sits behind the "25", I  rubbed over the clear ink pad and added a sprinkle of Metallic Platinum Sparkle glitter embossing powder - this is a great way to add some zing to your doilies, creating custom designs and colours.


This cute little tag has been created with shrink plastic tag along with the "Merry Christmas" and snow flurry stamps from the Let It Snow set. I just stamped the snow onto white shrink plastic with a pink ink pad then stamped the greeting on top, heated the plastic and hey presto!





The main panel on the bag is just a piece of corrugated cardboard which I've highlighted with gesso, then sprinkled over White Puff embossing powder to create a texturised snowy look. The main embellishments are a set of chipboard numbers which I tapped with WOW's ultra slow drying clear ink pad and sprinkled on a selection of powders : Peppermint Tea and Pink Lady and Silver Stratosphere which adds a wonderful festive sparkle! I finished the numbers off with crystals and some paper flowers.






I hope I've given you some inspiration to play with some less obvious colour schemes for the festivities and have a go at creating your own packaging. It's so fun, easy and a wonderful way to package up a well chosen gift!





Happy crafting!

SWEET BAKER'S BOX

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to share with you a sweet bakers box that I made and decorated using the WOW Embossing Powders. Take a look at my box:


To create this box I used Crumb Cake card stock and Baker's Box Thinlits by Stampin Up. This box has a perfect size for treat like cupcakes or small presents. So I decided to create my own pattern on it. For this purpose, I used a dot stencil over the pieces of the box, I covered the free areas with the WOW Embossing Pad and then I embossed it with WOW Earthtone Olive Embossing Powder. I assemble the box and sponged the borders PowderPuff Chalk Ink Sand.

  
To personalize the box, I took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and inked it with Satin Red VersaFine Ink. I embossed all the pieces with WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and cut the starbrush circle using a die cut included on the Thinlits Baker's Box Collection. I obtained a very shiny red piece to add a festive touch to my box. I finalized this by adding a circle of old olive and very vanilla. Over the very vanilla I stamped two words included on the stamp set Just Saying from WOW with Satin Red and WOW Clear Embossing Powder. I closed the box with a decorated paper banner and gold mini clip that I decorated with a tiny baker's twine bow.

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon for more inspiration!

Christmas Box by Susanne

Hi everyone!

It's Susanne writing today and I'm sharing a decorated Christmas gift box.


I used the DCWV DIY Project Stack for Favour Boxes. I picked one out of kraft cardstock and embossed it with WOW! "Sprakling Snow" Glitter. 

To make the snowflakes pop out even more I wiped all edges with Distress Ink "Walnut Stain".

The stack includes, not only the base of the box, it has also some decorative pieces. I picked the hearts and covered them with WOW! "Primary Pink Lady".

I die cut a Christdorn branche (from Sizzix) to create some more embellishment. I inked the die cut, while it was still in the die, with embossing ink and used "Earthtone Mint" powder to add dimension to it.

I colored the branch with Distress Ink "Peeled Paint".
 

Finally I decorated the box:


Thank you for stopping by today.
xx Susanne.

Box It Up



Good morning crafty friends! I hope you're all well getting inspired by our challenge this month. It's always nice to make something instead of a card and I really enjoyed making this cute gift box.
I found a template on the internet and stamped the main body of the box with the Brocade stamp which I embossed with Metalline Violet powder.



I added strips of double sided tape around the lid and covered it with Violet Flock. I die-cut flowers for the top then triple embossed them with Clear Gloss powder and then folded the petals back to create cracks. I mixed  Pistachio Glitter with Melt-it Powder and poured into a heart silicone mould to make the embellishment.


Finally, I stamped the tag with the Just Saying stamp set using Metalline Violet powder and tied it to the top with a contrasting baker's twine.

I hope you enjoy this challenge, see you next month,
