WOW! and Gerda Steiner Designs blog hop....!!

Hey everyone....



There is a super fun blog hop colab underway with WOW! embossing and Gerda Steiner designs and trust me you are totally going to want to hop along because it is full of amazing creations!!

I have two cards to share with you using a combination of the companies and for both of my cards I was inspired by a technique shared by the lovely Jennifer McGuire lately where she uses stencils and glitter so I thought why not try the same technique with embossing powder!!

This first card uses the embossing powder with the technique so what I did was cut a piece of cardstock with double sided adhesive to the size I needed for my card base and then placed the stencil over the top of the adhesive...


I tipped on my first colour of WOW! powder "Jealous guy", tipped off the excess and then removed the stencil. I then got my second colour of powder "Angel eyes" and filled in the rest of the open space on the adhesive. 

Once I tipped the excess of the second colour off I then heat set it with my WOW! dual heat gun!! It resulted in a cool background with a slight crack effect in it....

I used the gorgeous stamp set "A whale of a time" from Gerda Steiner and coloured them in with Copics!!


I also heat embossed a sentiment from the same a whale of a time stamp set using Opaque bright white embossing powder...

Onto my second card...

This one uses the same technique as Jennifer did with sparkles!!

I did the same for the card base with the adhesive and then for my sparkles I picked WOW! bio sparkles Mahi, Mahi and then my second sparkles Sea fan!!


It turned out SOOOOO sparkly and pretty!!

For the images I used one of my new fave Gerda stamp sets "Ghosts"....
They have such fun and unique expressions and I love it!! 

These ghosts are also perfect for use on cards any time of the year....


and how funny is that sentiment??!! hehehehe....


I heat embossed the sentiment using Opaque bright white powder on black cardstock...
I love using the white embossing powder for sentiments on different colours of card!!

  12. Both backgrounds are great! Very sweet whales add to the ocean background. Embossing showcases the color and stenciling gives movement. I like the heart-friendly trim on the circle panel. In the second card, love the friendly ghosts, the embossed background, and the colors.
