Christmas card using Art Wax

I am show casing a fabulousnew product from Craftangles today!
You will see in the video below, how just a tiny bit of this gorgeous metallic coloured wax can transform any project into a thing of beauty!
It works best on a black background so here is what I came up with.
I started out by applying the Craftangles black charcoal texture paste on black cardstock using Craftangles stencils.
Once dry, I rubbed a little bit of the Craftangles 'Iridiscent pink', 'Iridiscent violet'  and 'Bronze' art wax to create a metallic background.
I even tried it on Craftangles 'Black diamond' glimmer paste and the results were fantastic.
Enjoy the video.

Once the backgrounds were done, I cut out the panels using Simon Says Stamp stitched dies.
I then heat embossed the sentiment (Penny Black) on Craftangles vellum , die cut the tag (mftdienamics) and the Christmas trees (Impression Obsession), added a satin bow and adhered the panel to a white A2 card base. 
Its hard to capture the gorgeous beauty of this waxed background in a photo, but, you get the idea.
Craftangles stencil used with Craftangles Black diamond glimmer paste is 'Flourish'.

For the second card, I have used a sentiment from Hero Arts and 
the bench and lamp from Lawn Fawn. I gold embossed the sentiment and images and added them to the die cut panel to create an unusual Christmas card.
The Craftangles stencil used here is  'Doodle around'.

For the third card, I have used the Craftangles stencil 'Geometric bliss' 
and a fabulous Santa die cut from Impression obsession, 
which I die cut from copper coloured cardstock. 
The sentiment is from Impression Obsession too.

For the last card, I used Craftangles 'black diamond' glimmer paste which is absolutely fantastic, along with the Craftangles 'Indian motif' stencil.
The gold embossed sentiment is from Penny black and the die cut trees from Impression Obsession.

Hope you liked these cards and will give these products a try!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!

Diecutting and stencilling with glimmer paste


I've been having so much fun with Craftangles glimmer pastes this month!!
I also decided to play with the Tiffany inspired colours..aqua, white, gold and black.
Here is what I came up with!

For my first card, I started out by stencilling a cardstock panel with Tim Holtz 'Cracked Pistachio' and Craftangles 'Gold Dust' glimmer paste and the Craftangles 'dots' stencil.
I then die cut the word 'Happy' using the Winnie and Walter die and created a simple shaker card, filling it with Craftangles 'clear shimmer' sequins.
I added a stamped and fussy cut Altenew  layered rose to add some colour. I finished the card with a white heat embossed birthday sentiment on black card.

Its hard to photograph the gold glimmer, but the card looks really pretty.

For the next two cards,
I started out by creating two patches of card using 
Craftangles 'Gold dust' glimmer paste and Tim Holtz 'Cracked Pistachio' distress ink.
I did this in order to use these panels to die cutting.

For the second card, I started by creating a card panel using 

I used the gold glimmer panel I made to die cut the Flora and Fauna 
Volkswagon beetle car. I also die cut the same using some craft foam,
which I used to give the card some dimension.
 I then encircled the car with the My Favourite Things Happy birthday die cut, cut from
Cratangles Aqua cardstock.

I finished the card with a white embossed sentiment on black cardstock.
Again, its hard to photograph the glimmer, but its Oh so pretty!

For the last card, I was inspired by this card I saw on Instagram.
I loved the look of layered balloons and decided to try it myself.
I used the aqua and gold glimmer card stock I created to die cut the balloons (From Lawn Fawn) . 
I further inked the aqua balloons to add some dimension. 
Once the panel was dry, I adhered the balloons and the sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp) and finished the card with some shiny black sequins.

I really love how these cards turned out..I hope you like them too.
Thanks so much for stopping by..
Have a great day!
