Balloons & Confetti with Jeannie

Hi crafty friends! My name is Jeannie (InsideoutJeans) and I’m back today as a guest designer for Wow! Embossing Powder for this month. Last week, I shared a card using all embossing powders. Today, I wanted to showcase how you can use a mix of embossing powders together as a subtle element and accent to a card. 

My Favorite Things' Card Size Confetti Stencils has two stencils that layer on top of each other. I used a blending tool along with WOW! Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad to pick up the ink to put onto the stencil. For this background, I wanted to use multiple colors: Hydrangea, Persian Indigo, Blue Moon, Sunflower, and Azalea. To use all these colors together, I would add the ink to the stencil in parts, then add embossing powder, heat set and repeat. I like how some of the colors were separate and integrated as well. 

I decided to use Gerda Steiner Designs' Lovely Pandas set for today's card. I stamped the panda with a balloon image and also masked the balloon to add two more additional ones. I thought this image would work perfectly with the fun, celebratory background. By coloring the balloons in similar colors, it really pulled the card together. I drew in a sidewalk at the bottom of the card panel so the panda would be grounded. 

For the sentiment, I wanted it to use one of the colors I used for the confetti so I chose Azalea on black cardstock. I also decided to trim my main card panel down a bit so I could mat it on black cardstock as well. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you get inspired to create. Come back again soon for more inspiration and ideas! Happy Crafting!
