Embossing Glitter on Colored Cardstock with Karen Reategui

  Hello friends! For today I have this card using the new Minty Embossing Glitter and In The Navy Embossing Powder. On this card I have heat embossed over colored cardstock and the result is gorgeous. The stamps and dies that I used are from Picket Fence Studios and I have Wild Peonies Stamp Set, Aurora Borealis Stamp and Big Hugs Word Die.  There's also a video on how I made this card over WOW! Embossing Powder YouTube, so head over there if you want to check it out, click here .  Let's shine now! To create this background I started by stamping the Aurora Borealis Stamp on top of the navy cardstock, I applied the anti-static powder over my panel and inked up my stamp. Then, I firmly pressed down onto my MISTI door to get a full coverage of this image.   Next, I added on top of the panel the Minty Embossing Glitter and heat embossed it using my heat tool from WOW!

VIDEO: Re-cap of YouTube Live with Erica

 Hi WOW! fans!  Did any of you catch the first, of hopefully many more, Time To Be WOWed YouTube live shows last week?? DT member Daniel and I got together, socially distantly of course, and had some fun live on the WOW! YouTube channel . We had the best of intentions of actually finishing a couple of cards but we didn’t quite get there, too much laughing and jibber-jabbering! In case you missed it, you can catch the replay.  Our plan was to make a couple of cards with the Garden Florals layering stencils from Pinkfresh Studio , and as I mentioned, we didn’t finish them all in the hour but I did finish five afterwards. These are the cards we are going to have a look at today. Oh, and some swatches I made with some of the new powders too. Can you believe that I only started to swatch my powders this year?? Yep. True story.  I did my first ever swatch with the Egyptian Turquoise and boy, did I fall in love quickly or what? I was totally blown away by how gorgeous it was, and it looked
