Guest Designer : Amy Tsuruta

We are very excited to announce that we have Amy Tsuruta 
joining us for the month of July.


Hi, it's Amy of Tsuruta Designs.  I'm so excited to be guesting for Wow Embossing Powder.   I live in the beautiful state of Washington and have two wonderful kids.  My daughter graduated from the University of Washington last June and is working for a start up biotech company in Seattle.  My son will be entering his final year of college this fall in New York.  I've been crafting ever since I can remember but started blogging in 2007.   I love color, clean and simple, cute + coffee.

I've been super smitten with nautical designs lately!  Here's a peek at some of my supplies:

Here are a couple of my stamping supplies that I gathered for a fun nautical card:

I inked up the background stamp with the Embossing Pad:

I covered it with the Metalline First Frost Regular Embossing Powder and heat set until completed:

I inked up the main focal point image with the Embossing Pad and used the Metalline First Frost Regular Embossing Powder and heat it until it was set:

The sentiment was heat embossed with the Opaque Bright White Regular Embossing Powder

Here it is all put together.  With the main image embossed in the same color as the background waves, it's a nice transition.  The image has been colored with various alcohol markers.

The sheen of the Metalline First Frost Regular Embossing Powder is absolutely gorgeous!  I decided to use a panel with a ton of white space.  My card was finished off with sequins.

That's it for me! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
