Be Merry & Bright

Hello craft friends I hope you’re all well and looking forward to the festive season. It’s always nice to squeeze in another Christmas creation and I really enjoyed making this bauble card for this month’s DT inspiration.

I started by die-cutting a circle of white card which I then stamped a sentiment on and used the Wall Art Stamp around the edges. I inked over the stamped areas then embossed the card with Regular Clear Gloss embossing powder. While the powder was still warm I sprinkled Your Carriage Awaits Sparkles over the stamped areas then heated again with the heat tool.

I die-cut the reindeer and triple embossed them with two layers of Champers Embossing Powder and a light dusting of Metallic Gold Rich.

I then die-cut stars, stamped with the Starburst stamp then embossed with White Pearl Embossing Powder. I then sprinkled Bridal Sparkles on top while it was still warm and melted again with a heat tool.



After layering up all the elements I added some gems and dome stickers for …

WOW: Christmas Sparkle Tags

Hi Everyone Jo here and welcome to to today's fun tag creations playing with the fabulous Sparkle collection from WOW. With Christmas coming up my family loves to give gifts to the people that have touch our lives in so many ways.  I had so much fun playing with this glitter collection.

To make these tags I have used the MFT tag builder blueprints 2 die set. Die cut using the Christmas Tree & Candy Cane dies in the center of each tags. Place a wide red line double sided tape and behind each die cut shape. From the front I sprinkled and burnished with my fingers the glitter collection. This die cut also has tag toppers to add an extra layer and element to tags.

TIP: Place a scrap piece of paper behind each time you do the glitters to capture the left overs to funnel back in the jars.






 My cardstock of choice is  Kraft & thick white card bases. To add a bit of pattern I have also used the MFT Birthday Blowout 6 x 6 Paper Pack. 
For the sentiments I chose from the Wplus9 Hand…

Christmas Card

Hello this is Laurence (laury55) today with a Christmas card. We still have some time until Christmas but we are all very busy in December and preparing your cards in advance will reduce your stress later. My Christmas card is quite simple and may be easily duplicated
1) I covered a scrap of paper with WOW metallic gold powder, heat embossed and used dies for the letters.
2) I cut 2 triangles for the trees, the second one is covered with adhesive. I applied WOW Oceanic Embossing on the first one and WOW Santorini sparkles on the second one.
3) I stamped directly on my background paper and heat embossed with WOW gold rich sparkle powder.

Thank you for your visit. I hope you will join our current challenge. Here's the fabulous products Laury used on her gorgeous project - 


Merry Christmas - Watercolour Card by Susanne

Hi my dear crafty friends!

I have a Christmas card with you to share! It's never too early to start, so you don't have to hurry in December. This card is really easy to recreate and it can be made with nearly every kind of stamp for any occasion.



I started by stamping a pattern with one of the leaves from the "Flights of Fancy" stamp set. I embossed it with Gold Rich Powder. I did the same to a piece of vellum.



I coloured some of the leaves with my Gansai Tambi watercolours. But any kind of watercolour will work for this resist technique.



I cut a "Merry Christmas" from cardstock which was covered with double sided tape. This is an easy way to foil your die cuts! Just expose the sticky side and press the foil onto it. Rub it gently with your fingers. I used WOW! Fab Foil Gold.



Finally I build up my card. I cut the background with a stitched frame die, added some gold splatters (Aztec Metallics from ColourCraft) and adhered it to the card base. The vellum is…

Don’t go breaking my heart


Hi everyone. Emma here with an idea for cards using the triple embossing technique. 
I stamped the dotty heart stamp (from the Layered Hearts stamp set) three times onto a playing card. (I like the fact that with the plastic coating, playing cards are slightly tougher for this technique). It doesn’t need to be perfect - I just wanted the rough shape. Cut them out and wipe off any ink that hasn’t dried.

Triple emboss each heart using WOW Fluorescent Blue Regular embossing powder. Whilst the top layer is still hot stamp the dotty heart into each one.
Press the stamped hearts onto the WOW embossing ink pad and then apply Ranger Perfect Pearls powder in Bronze with a brus…

A Touch of Autumn

Hello crafty friends, how are we all? There have been some amazing projects for the triple embossing challenge this month and now it’s my turn. The textures you can achieve with this technique reminded me of cracked and dry autumn leaves so I decided to make a mini wreath.

I started by applying and then melting two layers of Oasis and one layer of Oceanic powder to white cardstock. I then re-melted a small area, pushed one of the Flights of Fancy Stamps into the molten powder then removed after a few seconds. I then cut out the leaf then repeated the process over the rest of the cardstock.

I created more leaves using a different leaf stamp pressed into three layers of Perissa Powder then shaped each leaf with my fingers. I then die-cut leaves from orange cardstock and applied then melted three layers of Clear Gloss powder. Once they were cool I bent them to crack the layers. I attached all the leaves to a circular frame die-cut from Kraft card.

I used the Big Words Stamp and Bark pow…
