Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder!
Hello craft friends…I
´m back with you today to share another fabulous WOW! colour combo! Today I´ve combined some gorgeous embossing powders from WOW! with some florals. I decided to go with a palette that combines a little pastel, some earthy tones, metallics and I threw in some sparkle for good measure…think I have all the bases covered here! Let´s get started, shall we?
To begin I used the Twister Stencil and added some texture paste to a piece of mixed media cardstock and then immediately sprinkled on the Neutral Ultra Shimmer embossing powder while it was still wet and the set it aside to dry. Once it was almost dry I used the Dual Speed Heat Embossing Tool to set the embossing powder and make it really sparkle! Next I heat embossed 5 different pieces of cardstock using Opaque Pastel Pink, Metalline Himalayan Musk, Metallic Gold Rich, Glassy Ocean and Earthtone Olive. I applied 2 layers to each colour, so as to have a nice and smooth finish for my flowers. Once they were all embossed, I cut out all of the flower pieces.
The sentiment was quick and easy to do thanks to the WOW! Foilers Sweet Sentiments. I simply trimmed down the sentiment that I wanted and sent it through my Minc machine with some gold foil…..done and done! I arranged it all on my stenciled background and added it to my cardbase. The sparkle is hard to see on the background, but it is there and oh so pretty!
And there you have it! I love coming up with new and fabulous colour combos, but also turning to tried and true favourites too. I always love the mix of pink and teal and well, gold goes with everything. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have the most wonderful and colourful day!
Until next time, Michelle

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.
