WOW! Embossing Powder & Gerda Steiner Designs Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and welcome to a very exciting, fun collaboration blog hop filled with cuteness, sparkle and shine.



You should have come here from Gerda Steiner Designs blog.

I have 2 cards for you today!
I used WOW! Embossing powders Opaque Bright White, Clear Gloss, White Puff Twinkle, Midas Touch for this card and Balancing Mouse Stamp set by Gerda Steiner

I started by sponging some distress inks to a white panel and then stamped the snowflake using the same inks for a subtle effect. I then flicked some white paint and let it dry. I then added Midas touch embossing powder towards the edges and heat set it. This is such a pretty powder and is one of my favourites.

I then stamped and colored the image. I added clear powder to the bauble and heat set it. I repeated the embossing 3 times to give it a more 3d effect. I then applied embossing ink using the embossing pen to the hat fur and embossed using White Puff Twinkle ep.



Love the fun dimension and texture of the fur!



For my 2nd card, I used Opaque Bright White, Metallic Gold Rich Super Fine, Sugared Almond, Taffeta Pink, Aventurine, Red Glitz Embossing Glitter by WOW! and Balancing Mouse Stamp set by Gerda Steiner

For this card, I stamped and embossed some snowflakes using white ep. I then sponged some inks in an ombre and stamped a few snowflakes. I stamped and embossed the bauble and sponged some blue inks. To make the colorful lights, I used embossing pen to the bulbs and embossed using various colored embossing powders. Love the effect in real.






It wouldn't be a hop without PRIZES, right?
Both WOW! Embossing Powder and Gerda Steiner Designs will each be giving away a $25 Gift card each to our stores.

Studio Katia: Merry Christmas

Hello everyone!Today I am sharing a CAS shaker card on Studio Katia Blog using some of the new winter release goodies. I love the new Floral Snowflake Stencil so much and of coarse the snowflake stamp and dies. I decided to use just the die for my card today.


I started by applying some distress ink onto a white layer, through the stencil using the new ink blender brush. I really love the soft and even result we get with them. I then die-cut snowflake and adhered the cut snowflake to the cardbase. Now, I adhered acetate onto the back side of the panel.

Add some Frost and Fine glitter onto the snowflake on the card. Apply double sided tape around the snowflake and the cardbase. Adhere the panel to the card. This way, the card isn't bulky and is perfect for quick mailing. Flick some black splatters and let it dry.


I then die-cut the word Merry 3 times from white cardstock and once from glitter cardstock. I then added some color to the glitter word. Stack them all and adhere to the shaker window. Stamp and adhere the word Christmas.
To finish, I added some of the Icy Crystals.

Thank you for dropping by! Have a nice crafty day!

You should have arrived from Kaja Vezenšek's blog and Ilda Dias is your next stop. If you get lost you can find the full hop list below or visit Studio Katia Blog!

For my card, I decided to use the stencil and highlight this GORGEOUS glitter from the new release.


I started by sponging some inks to a piece of white cardstock using the new blending brushes....I HAVE to tell you they are amazing. Perfect size and that the brush head is white so it's easy to see the colors on them. The soft bristles make it super easy to blend seamless.
I then placed the stencil on top and sponged some more inks. I then took a little transluscent embossing paste, mixed some sparkle glitter to it and applied a thin coating of this. Let this dry.


Now, I die-cut the window using the new cover die and adhered the center hexagon to its place on the cardbase. I then adhered vellum from behind to the mat layer and adhered it to the cardbase. I die-cut the word "Merry" 4 times and stacked them together. Adhered it to the panel. stamped the word Christmas and adhered the stripe. This card looks really pretty in real life. Full of sparkle.
