Happy Monday, friends! When I first started card making, heat embossing was one of the first techniques I learned. For today’s card, I decided to pick out some shades of turquoise glitter embossing powder and make an ombre background. The Basic Backgrounds stamp set from Sunny Studio is a great set to make stunning backgrounds. 💛

I used three different embossing powders from Wow! Embossing Powder: Atlantic Seaspray, Under the Sea and Long Island Teal. All of these powders have a beautiful gold glitter. 😍 Sadly enough, I wasn’t able to catch the gorgeous sparkle on camera but I guarantee you… it’s so pretty in real life.

I colored some images from the adorable Beach Babies set from Sunny Studio. I really like how the hair turned out! Like I mentioned in the video, I learned a lot from the free Markers 101 coloring class from Kit and Clowder. I recommend checking it out since it’s FREE! 🌈

Ombre Heat Embossing Ft. WOW! Embossing Powder

To finish off the card, I used Tonic Nuvo Drops. Honestly, I’ve had these for a while but I’ve always been too scared to actually use them! Because once you apply the product to your card, it’s there to stay – LOL! 😄 However, I got over the fear and just started to have fun with them. Nowadays, I apply the Nuvo Drops randomly and just stop whenever it feels right.

That’s it for now, my friends. Thanks for stopping by. Sending big, big hugs! 💕

Hello, friends! I am excited to announce that I’m guest designing for WOW! Embossing Powder. WOW has been close to my heart for some years now so of course I said yes to the offer! In total, I’ll be sharing two cards in this blog post. Both cards have videos. Also, be sure to check out the WOW! Embossing Powder blog for more inspiration.

In the first video I am creating a modern card using the Flights of Fancy stamp set along with some white and clear embossing powder.

DSC00595The Flights of Fancy set is simply stunning. I love the versatility of this set since you can use these images as feathers and leaves. First I heat embossed the leaves/feathers using white embossing powder. The Opaque Bright White embossing powder is my favorite one, by the way. After heat setting the powder, I did some simple masking with painters tape. I chose a modern color scheme and sticked to pink, purple and mint. I like to use Distress Inks for the blending but regular dye ink works great as well!
