Good morning! I'm excited to be part of a Blog Hop with some of the designers from the Catherine Pooler Creative Team and also some designers from WOW! Embossing Powders. We're hopping to show you how well these two product lines work together.
As you can see, I created two cards with stripes. What you maybe can't see is that they both used the exact same 6 WOW! Embossing Powders!
I thought it would be fun to show how different the powders look when you use a different ink as a base. I used the same stripe stamp from Eat, Sleep, Create for both cards. I used the same embossing powders in the same order. But for the Celebrate Everything card, I used Versamark ink. For the Star card, I used black Versafine ink.
Working top to centre (and then I reversed the order and worked back out to the bottom), I used
Wanderlust (exclusive to Catherine Pooler Designs)
The Versamark card resulted in colours that were soft, pretty and romantic, so I went with that feeling as I finished the card.
I used the scalloped rectangle from Tags, Etc. to trim the panel, and then I used the stitched rectangle from Postage Stamp dies to create an inner panel, which I popped up. I cut some flowers from the dies that match Love Grows, and coated them in Versamark before embossing them with Vintage Romance and Mermaid Tails. My sentiment comes from Good Things and was embossed in a seventh variety of embossing powder - Metallic Gold Rich Pale Superfine.
The black ink gave more industrial, metallic results so I kept my card very simple and masculine. Again, I used the stitched rectangle from Postage Stamp dies, but I turned it on my panel a bit so that the stripes would be on an angle.
I simply inlaid the new Star Word die into the panel and called it done.
No blog hop is complete without some prizes. Are you ready for some awesome giveaways?
