A Shiny Congratulations!

Hey Crafties!

I love shine and sparkle, especially in my cards. So wherever I can, I try to use products that do so.

For my card today, I have again used WOW Gold Metal Rich Superfine embossing powder. I just love this powder.

The Mandala stamp by Studio Katia is so pretty. I had been wanting this stamp ever since I saw it.

I first watercolored the background in an ombré effect using Koi watercolors with different colors of green.
I then heat embossed the stamp with the above powder.

I also heat embossed the sentiment which is from the Altenew set- Celebrations. That is aother set which I had been drooling over since a long time.

The stripes stamp is by Craftyscrappers.

I finished off the card with green jewels, again from Studio Katia. Aren’t they so pretty?

Partial Heat Embossing

Hiya Crafties!

Heat Embossing gives such a royale effect to our cards without doing much!

I did partial heat embossing technique by my fav Jennifer Mcguire for my card.

You can find her tutorial here.

This is my card:

I used the Large Petal background stamp by Hero Arts .

First I stamped with Versamark ink.

I then poured the WOW White Pearl Superfine embossing powder over it. With a fine brush, I removed the powder from the outer design carefully.

The white powder being transparent took on the color of the gray cardstock. The metallic shine it gives is so beautiful. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

I colored the stamp with my Inktense pencils.

The large number die is by Altenew.

I used the inlaid diecutting technique and foam mounted the number diecuts cut from a watercolored cardstock colored with yellow.

This way I can use the positives of the number diecuts in another card.

Finally I adhered the panel on A2 card base by Itsy Bitsy.

Flowery Wishes

Hiya Crafties!

Heat embossing is such an integral part of card making. Be it heat embossing a sentiment, or a small image or a whole background! And it gives such beautiful effects!

For my card today, I heat embossed the entire background with Little birdie Gold embossing powder from Itsy bitsy.

The background stamp is by Simon Says Stamp named Flower Explosion. I love this stamp. It’s so pretty. And a must have for a coloring enthusiast.

Before embossing, I adhered a diecut circle of masking paper in the centre. This was so that I could add the sentiment in there.

The sentiment is by Craftyscrappers. I heat embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder.

I also added some green & gold paint splatters to bring everything together.

Lastly, I matted my panel with gold cardstock on an A2 card base.

And my card is done!!!
