****************************************************************************

Hi, there!
Hope you are having a good day.
Today, I'm sharing my cards featuring Pretty Pink Posh and Wow Embossing Powder Products. I'm so glad to join the Blog Hop and I hope you will join us and have fun !



For my first card, I started by stamping Wild Rose using Wow Embossing Pad on 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper, then I applied Wow Glitter Clear Sparkle and then heat set it.



I watercolored the images using Zig Clean Brush Markers and trimmed the panel into A2 size.
A sentiment from Encouraging Greetings set was heat embossed on black cardstock using Wow Embossing Pad and Embossing Powder White Super Fine, then I cut it into a tag using Stitched Pieces Dies.



I added Ivory Twine and Sparklingn Clear Sequins Mix as embellishment.
Look at the beautiful sparkle from the Wow Glitter. I love the frosty look from it. 
The White Fine Embossing Powder has superfine particles that you can get clean white embossed effect no matter how the sentiment is small. The only thing you need be careful is not to apply too much ink before you pour powder when you stamp images.




For my second card, I fussy cut the Wild Rose images. I cut oval frame out of a 110 Neenah White then I applied Wow Glitter Hot Gossip on it using Wow Embossing Pad and heat set it. I repeated three times.


To make a background, I ink blended a piece of A2 sized Bristol Paper using Distress Inks : Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Cracked Pistachio, Tumbled Glass, and Evergreen Borough. I then splattered water and used paper towel to remove excess water. 


Next, I stamped a  sentiment from Encouraging Greetings set  on the center with  Wow Embossing Pad and heat embossed it using Wow Metallic  Gold Rich Pale Embossing Powder.


I foam mounted the Oval Frame, then I adhered blossoms and leaves around it using glue and foam tapes. 






Thank you for reading this post.
Now your next stop is Marion's blog.
Have fun!


Marge ♡

Marge, I have to ask a question … how do you manage to make me love something I don't usually even like? #1 - I never liked blue, but love it every time you use it on one of your gorgeous florals! #2 - I'm not usually a glitter-girl, and yet this glittery, sparkling, gorgeous card is saying: YES, Michele, you do like me after all!! xx
