Patriotic Summer Decor

13 Jun
Few things conjure up thoughts and memories of summer then 4th of July, don’t you agree?
I love 4th of July festive colors and indoor/outdoor decor but don’t have much of it.
I created this little plaque to start my own collection of 4th of July decor.
I started with a plain piece of wood and covered it with some paper from Authentique Paper’s Genuine line.
I then added to the background using the hearts from the stamp set called Gratitude and embossed them with Metallic Platinum Sparkle.
All the butterflies are from the wonderfully fun set called Build a Butterfly.
Each butterfly and coordinating smaller butterflies are embossed in the following 3 powders:
I love the way this turned out…what do you think?
Do you like to make things for the holidays?
What have you got planned for the summer?
I just hope to get through the day without melting!!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post.

Fun Card with Wow Embossing Powders

27 Feb
Today I am going to briefly tell you how to make a card shaped like a matchbook, but not tiny, like a real matchbook.
First start out with a rectangle that is 3 5/8″ x 8″.   Fold in half matching the short ends and then score another parallel fold line, 1/4″ next to your 1st fold line.
Here I have already scored, folded and opened back up the card.  I then took a piece of decorative paper that was 3 1/4 ” wide by 3 1/2 ” tall, and adhered it to my card front.
Next a took and cut our a decorative shape of paper from white cardstock.  When ever you want to use a shape and have it completely covered with enameled embossing powder, cut the shape out first!  The embossed enamel will stick to your die!
You will see the finished piece below..but for now on to the next step.
To make the matchbox closure, take a decorative border about 3/4″ tall and decorate to your liking. I used eyelets and decorative border punches.
You will see the final product in a couple more pics..but for now on to the next step.
Here I have taken a piece of chip board and have embossed the front with Cotton candy.  While the enamel was still drying, I quickly used a stylus to carve some of the enamel off.  The final result?  It leaves white marks wherever you have etched off the enamel, pretty cool, eh?
Here is my card front:  The embossed red is called CABLE CAR RED.  The GRATITUDE ticket stamp is from the GRATITUDE stamp set.
I love the way that COTTON CANDY heart looks!
For the inside…I precut 2 scalloped circles.  I want to emboss them and make a ladybug, but remember, I said to be sure and cut your decorative shapes out BEFORE embossing.
Here is the ladybug on the inside of the card…isn’t she cute??  I used the FLOWERS stamp on her wings and the HEART border from the GRATITUDE stamp set.  The THANKS sentiment is also from the GRATITUDE stamp set.
Ladybug close-up.
I love the way this looks, and see the bottom border, you tuck the card front behind that to close and open the card.
Here is one last look at the card.  I love playing with these stamps and powders, it is pure FUN!.
I hope you have enjoyed this fun card, this has been Jeannie from The Polka CABANA with today’s post!

Wowed by WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS

11 Jan
Hello blogging world, today I am sharing my first project here for the fantastically yummy embossing powders by WOW.
I created a fairly simple layout so that the colors of the powders would really stand out.
I started with a picture that I manipulated in PSE.  I wanted the picture and my title to be the background paper.  Here is what I started with.
Yep, that’s me..goofy I know but it is what I wanted!!
I had the image of what I wanted to do in my head, and here is what I dreamed up!
When I look at this layout, I am just giddy.
I used the Wow Beautiful Clear Stamp set called GRATITUDE.
All the embossing powders I used are from the CANDY COUNTER COLLECTION–Berrylicious, Whirly Pop, Sour Lemon, Gummy Bear Green, Bubble Gum & Cotton Candy.

This is for a book I have decided to do about me.
We all have things that are unique, things that make us who we are.
I am a Sunday School teacher for teenagers and this past Sunday I was talking about the importance of journaling.  I had this MOMENT while planning my lesson that I wanted to do a book about the nuances that make me who I am.  I told my class about this and told them that journaling can be really fun.
I told them it was my promise I would start myself and that I would create something and bring it to church the following Sunday.
Now that I have my first page I can’t wait to do others.
The WOW embossing powders will come in very handy during this process!
Sorry, for my ramble…I just thought I’d let you know what my page was all about!
Thanks for the visit and I hope you get a chance to play around with these fun powders!
