Powder Pixies are here to inspire you!

Hi there! It's Tricia Wilson and the "Powder Pixies" back for yet another group post! We have two layouts, one canvas and a card to share with you today. So, get ready for some major cuteness and read on. ;)

Design team member Jenifer Cowles created this absolutely adorable 6x6 canvas about her little one.  She didn't have any canvases on hand so she made one using some scraps of wood. For the canvas she repurposed a pair of his old denim overalls. How clever and resourceful is that?!  She used the Brocade and the Gratitude stamp set along with  WOW Cable Car Red Embossing powders.
Designer Tanisha Long created this darling layout "Pocket Full of Sunshine" about her two boys. She added a very nice raised texture to her journaling by writing it with an embossing pen and then using WOW's Bright Opaque White embossing powder to highlight and emphasize it. On this layout she used four different embossing powders: WOW Bright Opaque White; WOW Clear Gloss Ultra High; Suzy West California Sunshine; Suzy West Sierra Sunrise Embossing Glitter.


For her group project designer Jamie Cripps created a card using two stamp sets. She used the"Brocade" stamp and created her own patterned paper look then used the "It's a Bird" stamps to add the images and sentiment to her card and WOW Angel Wings to add a little sparkle. This adorable card to be sent to just about anyone who is on your mind to let them know you are thinking about them.

For my project I created a layout title "Us 3 girls" using a mixture of WOW Silver regular and Clear Regular powder and two stamp sets: Love Beyond Measure and Simply Amazing. I mixed the two powders together to give a more subtle shimmer to my layout and I just love the results!
In the image below I embossed a section of pink patterned paper using a mixture of two powders, then used two different punches to create the butterflies. The frame in the photo below and the double hearts on the tag in the last image were stamped, embossed, hand cut out, then added to the layout. I also embossed the edges of my doilies for a bit of added shimmer and sparkle.
I also used an embossing pen and filled in the die cut "LOVE" on the tag with the same combination of powders. I love the delicate softness that it added.


Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by the blog today and taking a look at the projects we've created for you. I hope you have been inspired to go forth and CREATE! Pin It Now!
