The Powder Pixies are back

Hi there and Happy St. Patricks day! Tricia and the Powder Pixies are back to show you some unique projects to delight and hopefully inspire you.

For this week post, Linda Abadie has created a card using stamped background and embossed with Earthtone Pepper Regular and added a layer of patterned paper underneath it before machine stitch throughout the card. She added a chipboard that was embossed with Presidio Purple Regular and distressed using sand paper for accent. She added some paper flowers and ribbon. Leaves were embossed with Earthtone Olive Regular.

Jenifer Cowles used the Earthtone Blueberry embossing powder and the Brocade and Gratitude stamp for her "Thank you so very much" card.
Jamie Cripps made this stunning frame with flowers.
Here is a close up.
She has even provided us with instructions on how she achieved the look.

Iris used the stamp set "Is It A Bird", ultra high gold, ultra high copper, and angel wings on her amazing project.
For my project I made a layout. I had some strips of left over Amy Butler fabric (LOVE)and wanted to add a bit more texture to the edges with some embossing. I simply stamps directly onto the fabric, then sprinkled some Ultra Rich Super High Gold on top. The trick with embossing on fabric is to do it slowly and take your time, otherwise you may end up blowing your embossing powder all over the place (yes, I learned that lesson the hard way).

I hope you have enjoyed our post today. Please leave us any comments or questions you may have. We'd love to hear from you!
