Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder!
Hi friends…..I’m back with a new and more subdued colour combination, but that packs alot of sparkle! I wanted to create a village that was neutral, but lots of sparkle. So that’s exactly what I did! Let’s get started, shall we.
To start I cut a piece of watercolour paper to 4.25×5.5″ and did some blue ink blending for the background, going lighter on one end of it. I set that aside to dry for a bit and also used my heat tool to ensure it was fully dry, as it would be heat embossed. Once it was completely dry, I placed a snow stencil over it and smooshed my embossing ink pad over the entirety. I then sprinkled on White Puff embossing powder, to give the snow a bit of dimension.
I heat embossed 4 pieces of cardstock using Sparkling Snow, White Twinkle, Powdered Snow and Green Glitz. I then cut the trees and houses out of each colour. The white snowy hills were cut out of plain white cardstock and adhered together using liquid adhesive. The sentiment is from the Christmas Sentiments Stamp Set and was stamped directly on the bottom corner of the snowy hills, but part of it got a bit messed up, so I re-stamped it on a separate piece of cardstock, cut it out and popped it up using foam squares. The houses and trees were tucked in behind the hills and then it was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase.
And that’s it for my sparkly village….nothing too hard and fairly easy to create. Although the 2 white embossing powders may look the same, you can definitely see the difference in person….I really wish you could see the sparkle in person. It is the cutest and most sparkly little winter village! I hope this helps to motivate you and get out all of the sparkle…it is the season after all! Thank you so very much for stopping by and I hope that I have helped to inspire you in some small way. I wish you all the most wonderful and sparkly day!
Until next time, Michelle 😉
Hello…..my name is Michelle and I’m a Canadian girl living in the beautiful countryside of Switzerland with my Swiss husband and 2 cats. I love all things crafty, shiny and glittery! Besides my love for papercrafting, I also enjoy crocheting and making felt flowers.
My papercrafting journey began about 20 years ago when I walked into my little local stamp and scrapbooking store to make a scrapbook album for my parents’ 20th wedding anniversary. I eventually moved on to cardmaking and haven’t looked back since.
