Whimsy Stamps and WOW! Embossing Powder Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Let’s shine! For this hop I made a colorful birthday shaker card and an encouragement card featuring the Bearing Gifts Stamp and Pinwheels Stencil both from Whimsy Stamp. For my first card, I stamped with black ink and heat embossed all images using WOW! Clear Gloss Embossing Powder, then I colored with Copic markers and die cut them using my Scan N Cut machine.

Next, I applied a variety of rainbow colors from LDRS Creative Hybrid inks through the Pinwheels Stencil on top of a panel using the Life Changing Blender Brushes from Picket Fence Studios. I die cut a circle die to create a shaker window on my panel and at the back I glued a piece of acetate and foam tape. Additionally, I adhered a white card base, placed some gifts die cuts, sequins and placed on top my panel with the shaker window.

Lastly, I heat embossed a piece of paper using WOW! Taffeta Pink and Picnic Basket embossing glitters plus WOW! Angel Eyes embossing powder. Then, I die cut the Friend Word Die and the shadow out of white cardstock.

Finally, I arranged all the die cuts on top of the panel using glue and foam tape. Also, I stamped the sentiment on top of the card and this shaker is ready.

My next card is an encouragement card. In this case I placed the Pinwheels Stencil over a turquoise panel, applied WOW! Embossing Pad through the stencil, removed the stencil and poured Aquamarine Embossing Glitter from the WOW! Trio Gemstone inspired by Tracy Scott. I heat embossed using my heat tool and them I adhered a white card base at the back of this panel using glue.

Next, I die cut a white frame and placed it on the panel using glue. Then, I die cut a hill, heat embossed it with WOW! Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter and glued that on top of the background.

I placed the bears on top of the hill and stamped my sentiment on a piece of coral cardstock using WOW! Embossing Pad and then heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder. I adhered this sentiment on top of the card using glue and this card is finished.

Hope everyone is being safe and healthy at home. I wish this blog hop brings you a bit of joy and happiness. Below you will find the blog hop line up and also all the supplies used in these cards. Lovely hugs,

  3. I enjoyed how you combined the trio of colors atop the friend die! It looks stunning and I also really like all the embossing you did on your snow scene card! I never thought to use it on snow and now that gives me way more ideas! I have just been using it for sentiments! Thanks for opening my eyes to all the possibility! Cheers!
