Not all is as it seems

Welcome to WOW! Embossing Powder!

Hi crafty friends! I’m back today with a card that isn’t quite as it seems and can be a bit deceiving. I used a gorgeous palette of yellow, blue and the 3rd shall be revealed below lol. Let’s get started, shall we!

To start my card I cut a white cardstock panel to 4.25×5.5, as that is usually always my starting point. I then took a stencil and and adhered my cardstock to it and used a black texture paste and added it to the entire panel, ensuring to get as smooth an application as possible. I removed the stencil and then sprinkled on 3 different embossing powders in thirds. The first was Earthtone Honey, Frosted Glass and then Earthtone Blueberry. I set this aside and allowed it to completely dry.

Once the paste was dry, I heated up the powders to allow them to set properly, as you normally would. This is where the powders or 1 in particular can appear to play tricks on you. The middle colour that appears black is indeed black, as that is the black texture paste you see. However, if you turn it you will see that it is shiny, sparkly and textured. That is the Frosted Glass embossing powder. It is a beautiful transparent powder but it leaves a fabulous texture behind….kind of like as the name suggests, frosted glass. It sparkles like ice!

I trimmed down the panel a bit to leave a border and heat embossed my diecut sentiment using Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder and the sub-sentiment with Primary Ebony Super Fine. It as all adhered to the stencilled panel and added to the A2 cardbase.

And that’s it! Adding the embossing powders to a stencilled background really adds that WOW! factor and the combinations are endless that you can use. I love how the Frosted Glass powder allows the black paste to come through, but still has that sparkle to it. Thank you so much for stopping by and that I hope that I have helped to inspire you in some way. I wish you the most wonderful and crafty day!

Until next time, Michelle 🙂

Hello… 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.
