Hi everyone! Welcome to the Gerda Steiner Designs & WOW! Embossing Powder Collab Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be able to play with a bunch of embossing powders with one of my favorite stamp companies!
There’s tons of inspiration along this blog hop, so be sure to hop along and leave a comment. If you do, you’ll have a chance to win a WOW! Embossing Powder $25 Gift Card and Gerda Steiner Designs $25 Gift Card. Winners will be announced on Monday, November 25th!
Today I’m sharing two cards for the blog hop. It was super fun to create using a couple stamp sets together in collaboration with embossing powder. I will say that that most magical tool that I have in my crafty arsenal is my heat gun. I just love using it to set embossing powder and watching it melt!
For my first card, I did exactly that for the background. Persian indigo has this dark blue background with purple/pink glitters and it’s so pretty for a nighttime scene.
I used embossing ink to ink up an entire card panel and covered it in Persian Indigo. I did trim this A2 card panel down half an inch on both sides so I could mat it on another card panel, where I covered it with another embossing powder, Midas Touch.
I used one of the newest snowman stamps from Gerda Steiner Designs’ collection, Little Snowman. He’s a smaller 2×3 stamp but oh-so-adorable and the perfect focal stamp for this gorgeous background. The stamp already comes with a little snow banks he sits in, so I added a few larger snow banks behind him. I trimmed it out and added it right on top of that Persian Indigo background. It turned out to be such a cute and simple card.
For my next card, I wanted to do a non-Christmas set and used a combination of two stamp sets: Deeply and A Whale of a Time. For this card, I used the Pacific Wave embossing powder in conjunction with a wave stencil to create the background for the ocean.
I stamped out a bunch of the sea creatures, colored them, fussy cut them, and added them to the card. I masked off the top portion to show the sky and also gave myself an area to add the sentiment.
Using Opaque Bright White embossing powder for the sentiment really made it pop on top. I adore how this card turned out and love the details added by the embossing powders.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to visit the next stop and leave a comment for a chance to win!
