Create a Beautiful Icy Blue Holiday Card

by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

Create a Beautiful Icy Blue Holiday Card

Although red, green and gold colors are the most representative ones of Christmas, the last couple of years, I am quite fun of blue that combines so nicely with the silver and contrasts the white. Stars are favorite shapes of this season and using Delicata Sapphire Blue on lighter shades of blue, using MEMENTO bahama blue, give more depth on the card.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Die-cut 3 different sized star shapes.


Step 2

Place the star shapes on a piece of 4×6 card stock and spray first with the Fireworks! Bahama blue and then with Ink Potion No9. Remove the stars and dry the card stock with a heat tool.


Step 3

Lightly cover areas with MEMENTO Bahama blue ink pad.


Step 4

Place the star shapes, white side up, stamp with VersaMark the swirls stamp, cover with Mboss clear embossing powder and heat set.


Step 5

Distress the stars with Delicata Sapphire Blue.


Step 6

Stamp design on the stars, cover with Mboss white embossing powder and heat set. When finished, lightly press the edges of the stars on the VersaMark watermark ink pad, and heat set Mboss silver embossing powder.


Step 7

Set the card stock piece on the card with Tear It! Tape and start placing the ribbon.


Step 8

Continue adding the stars and the rest of the embellishments

See How to Make a Snowflake Shaker Ornament with Mboss

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Hello crafty friends, Martha Lucia here! Today, I am sharing a snowflake shaker ornament that you can use to decorate your gifts and/or Christmas tree. To create this, I am using a shaker dimension set with a snowflake design, VersaMark Clear Ink and Mboss Blue Icicle. Like this set came with a piece of acetate sheet to cover the free areas, I made it like a shaker piece adding some sprinkles.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Ink one of the sides of your or the ornament directly with the VersaMark Inkpad. Cover it with your selection of Mboss color. I used the Blue Icicle.


Step 2

Melt the powder with the heat tool. And repeat the process twice or three times to give more dimension to your ornament.


Step 3

Cut a piece of card stock with the same shape or your ornament and apply over it some touches of Frost Sheer Shimmer Stix. Let the paper dry naturally.


Step 4

Paste the base shape or double-sided foam tape onto the inked shape. Add your fillers, it could be sequins, sprinkles, beads or whatever you want. Adhere the clear acetate on top with liquid glue and cover it with the embossed design. Finalize your ornament adding a tie or pasting it to your gift. You can try different designs and different colors of Mboss to add your personal touch! Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!
