WOW! Embossing Powder and Whimsy Embossing collaboration blog hop

Hello there crafty friends,

WOW! Embossing Powder and Whimsy Stamps have come together for a collaborative blog hop and today I'm excited to share the projects I've made with all the awesome goodies! 

You should have arrived here from Jennifer Dove's blog, but you can find the complete blog hop list as well at the end of this post, in case you're lost.

I chose the Mother Love stamp set for my sentiments because I didn't have anything for mother's day which is coming up soon. I love the mixed font in these sentiments! I used the Rose Glintz embossing  powder on both of these cards.

I love dies, especially ones that you can add dimension to your projects with. I used a couple of die sets on these two cards, for the backgrounds the Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles and for the pretty flowers the Peony Flower dies

The gorgeous papers are from the beautiful Jen Allyson/My Mind's Eye Splendor collection. I cut several rectangles and layered them up. I used foam adhesive to adhere the one on the top so it pops up and I could tuck some leaves behind it.

I die cut a few flowers and leaves and played around with the arrangement until I was happy with how they looked. I added a few dots of Rose Glintz embossing powder to some of the leaves too. I glued everything in place and done!

My third card is the exact same idea with less layers and a different flower die, the Lily Flower die set. The papers are from the above mentioned Splendor collection as well as another beautiful My Mind's Eye collection, Gingham Farms.

I made this card right after I had worked on one where I used an opaque yellow embossing powder and it didn't register with me that not all powders will act the same way haha! As in, they are translucent rather than opaque. Hence the Soft Mango powder in this photo but a clear looking sentiment on the card :D. I actually prefer it this way - just wanted to explain why you see Soft Mango in the picture. You can totally go with the clear powder though haha!
