Grateful for you!

Hi everyone! Birgit here from the Netherlands. It's cold, windy and rainy here so perfect weather to stay inside and create! And how fun it is to create with these fantastic WOW embossing powders! Love the colors and the structure! And the stamps... just gorgeous!
I'm very excited to share my first layout here.
I love to create with little strips and blocks of paper in different colors and with different patterns. I'm always left with a lot of scraps, big scraps, because sometimes I only use a one inch strip of a whole sheet of paper. Recognize that?
So why not create your own patterned paper and bring 1 single sheet of cardstock to great value?
For this layout I cut half a sheet of white cardstock into strips of different sizes. I stamped the strips with a variety of stamps and embossed them with different colors.
The tickets and leaves where also stamped on white cardstock and embossed.
The little butterflies are actually part of a flower stamp (Gratitude) of which I only used the top part. I applied them to the layout with staples so I could bend the wings.
Behind the picture you find a cake cup that was embossed with the same color which gives it a nice structure. I also did that with the flower.
The chipboard letters where first embossed with puff powder and then covered with fine clear embossing powder.
Supplies used:
WOW! Embossing Powders: Suzy West Whirly Pop, Tea Garden Green, California Sunshine, Bay Area Blue, Presidio Purple, Skyline Grey Puff and Clear Gloss Super Fine.
WOW! stamps: Brocade and Gratitude
Patterend paper and chipboard letters: Basic Grey, Flower: Prima Marketing inc., letterstickers: Lily Bee design, Other: Kraft cardstock, cake cup, black pen, Adhesives: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you got inspired to get you some of these wonderful powders and stamps and create some art work!
