Happy Valentines Day everyone. Today is a day filled with chocolates, valentines cards and people we love. A day to craft with your children and do something special for your spouse.
Yup, I'm a fan of the Hallmark holiday known as Valentines Day and today I'm sharing with you the Altered Cigar Box project I've created for the WOW Embossing Powders Valentines Week Hop. If you haven't been following along this week, make sure you take a moment and check out the creations so far.
I wanted to create something special for my husband and thought what better thing than an altered cigar box. My husband is a fan of a good cigar, so the item kinda jumped out at me. For this altered cigar box, I used Whirly Pop, Cable Car Red and Gold Ultra High embossing powders. These embossing powders work fantastic on wood, plexi and flowers and to prove it, I've got pictures!!!!
First of a close up of the Gold Ultra High on chipboard. I love this stuff!!! Such a crisp emboss when it has been heated. No bubbles!!!!
Next I masked a chipboard heart and used both Whirly Pop and Gold Ultra High. Pretty Pretty I say...
For the front plexi part of the box, I used Whirly Pop and Gold Ultra High again. I wanted a really distressed look, so took a fan brush to some of the powder before heat embossing it.
With me still? Now the entire cigar box itself was embossed using a combination of Whirly Pop and Cable Car Red. I love these two colors together. Perfect for a Valentine project indeed.
Now for the entire shadow box. I added the flowers using Helmar 450 Quick Dry and Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give dimension. The burlap and papers were from the January Dixie Pieces Kit Be Mine, The rub-on in from The Robin's Nest.I hope you like it.
Think he'll like it? Probably would love it if it had a few Cuban cigars in it for sure haha. Well, thank you so so very much for stopping by today. Make sure you leave a comment, because I'm pretty sure at the end of this Wow Valentines Hop week, there is a Wowtastic Prize. Hope you all have a fantastic day filled with love
Until next time
