Violet Pearl Embossing Powder with Isha Gupta

Hello Everyone! Our July challenge is up on our facebook group and the theme is "Pearl Powders". If you've never tried them, now will be perfect time as we are going to get you lots of inspiration and techniques throughout the month.
To tell you the truth, up till now I only used Gold and White pearl powders but this challenge just opened me to whole new possibilities. I loved experimenting with various colors like the Violet, red and blues.
For today, I used the Violet Pearl embossing powder and used it in three various ways. It gives totally different result depending on the color we emboss it on.

Card 1

I created a monochromatic effect on my first card. I simply sponged distress ink in seedless preserves, wilted violet, picked raspberry and shaded lilac to create an ombrè look. Let it dry. Test it by putting a bit of powder onto it, if the powder sticks then dry a bit more. I find the setting 1 of WOW! Dual Heat tool perfect for this.

Once dry, stamp the Tropical ba…

Blue Pearl Cozy Plaid with Gemma

Today I have a card showing how the Pearl embossing powders work on different colours of cardstock. I love that with just one powder, you can achieve so many different tones.

I used the Blue Pearl powder to make a masculine card. I stamped the Hello Bluebird Cozy Plaid background stamp with WOW clear embossing ink on 3 panels of cardstock - a black, dark grey and light grey. I then embossed each panel with the Blue Pearl embossing powder.

I cut each panel into 3 pieces, then adhered one of each on my card base. To add interest, I adhered a thin strip of a contrasting embossed card between the panels. As I have some embossed panels left over, I can make another card with them, which is always a bonus.
Next, I die cut the Hello Bluebird Happy Birthday word die twice from white card stock and once from a blue patterned card, layering the pieces for a stacked sentiment. I adhered the birthday word on the card.

To finish the sentiment, I embossed 'wishes' from the Hello Bluebird J…

WOW PrImary Mandala

Hello and welcome! Ericka here with a mandala card using lots of beautiful WOW! Embossing powders .

I love this mandala and coordinating die from Concord & 9th and decided to make a multi colored  layered card. I had made the background previously using Distress Oxides and a gel press and had the perfect embossing powders to go with it.

I started by die cutting the mandala on white card stock and then placing the die cuts in my MISTI for precision stamping. I stamped the mandala with WOW! Embossing ink and used the following embossing powders on the project: Primary Fuchsia Fusion, Primary Parma Violet, Primary Blue Tang, and Primary Curacao.

After I was done embossing all the pieces of the mandala, I arranged them on my card front and used foam tape to add various layers of dimension.

 I finished the card by stamping the sentiment on with the Primary Blue Tang powder.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week. Happy crafting!  Cheers, Ericka
