All that glitters - DT project for WOW! Embossing Powder

Hey crafty friends,

This month it is all about glitter at WOW Embossing Powder! Like every girl I love glitter too! My boyfriend however, not so much haha! I didn't even notice how it covered the whole kitchen floor (my craft space is in the kitchen!). Oh well!

For my cards today I used the lovely Posie Fill-In stamps and dies bundle from Concord and 9th. I cut a piece of watercolor card stock and placed it in my stamping platform. I inked up my background stamp with WOW Embossing Pad and stamped the image. I repeated this once more to get a good coverage.

I poured WOW Bright White Regular embossing powder on it and embossed it.

I then added a light purple watercolor wash so the beautiful white grid is more visible.

It looks a bit splotchy and distressed at this point...The big areas where there's no grid are where the posies will be! Apropos posies...I stamped a bunch of them and embossed them with two different kinds of embossing glitters: Persian Indigo and Mulberry Mist. I did the same with some leaves. Aren't these colors AH-MAZING?! I'm so in love!

I die cut them all using the coordinating dies, and I also die cut some smaller leaves from lavender, white and navy card stocks. Boy this took ages ha! But I think it was so worth the effort.

I trimmed down my card fronts to 4.25"x5.5" and adhered them on the same size top folding card bases.

Next up the fun part! Assembly! I glued down everything, then trimmed off any excess.

I embossed 2 sentiments with Bright White Regular embossing powder and added these two, using foam adhesive.

To finish up the cards I added some white Nuvo drops to the center of my flowers.

I love all the texture and dimension and those glitters! Just WOW! :) What do you guys think?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
