Hello there, I am delighted to be taking part in the collaboration blog hop with WOW Embossing Powder and Pink & Main today. Both companies have wonderful products and it has been fun to combine them both. More info on the hop below :)
For my first card, I started off by stamping the Pink & Main Butterfly Background on to a piece of watercolour paper with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink. I applied WOW Opaque Bright White Superfine Embossing Powder and heat set. I blended Distress Oxide Ink on to the piece, with Salty Ocean at the bottom, Broken China in the middle and Tumbled Glass at the top. This piece was cut down and added to an A2 white card base with foam tape.
I took a piece of white cardstock and added adhesive sheet to both sides. I took the backing paper off one side and applied WOW Santorini Sparkles glitter. I burnished this in to the adhesive and then die cut it using the Pink & Main Thanks die. I also die cut this another two times from white cardstock. They were stacked up with the glitter piece added to the top layer. This was then added to the card.
For my second card, I again stamped the Butterfly Background on to a piece of watercolour paper with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing ink. I applied WOW Opaque Bright White Superfine Embossing Powder and heat set. I then spritzed the piece with water and applied Tonic Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Violet Brocade. I let the powder combine with the water to create some shimmery loveliness and set aside to dry.
I took the second largest of the Pink & Main Double Stitched Heart Dies and embossed one of these on to an A2 white card base. Once the butterfly piece was dry, I die cut it using the same heart die and adhered this inside the embossed one on the card front with tape runner. I took the sentiments from the Pink & Main Hello Sweet stamp set and stamped this on to black cardstock with WOW Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing ink. I applied the same white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few silver Glossy Dots.
