My last Gel A Tins post

26 Apr

This is a bittersweet post.  My term is up this month with Gel A Tins stamps and I completely missed the Team Call for the next term

I have had a ton of fun creating with these adorable stamps.

I have to say my favorite thing about Gel A Tins is the fact they come in this wonderful Tin.

Storage is pretty easy when your stamps come in their own storage system.

Today I am using the set called  Sugar & Spice.

I am also using the Mojo Monday Sketch # 238.

Here is my card for today:)

I looked at the sketch and knew that I wanted to try using my Mini Polaroid die for this card.

It a very simple color scheme and I think it is a fun variation of the Mojo Monday sketch.

Just using white embossing powder, I was able to keep the black and white theme for the card.

But there is never a problem with a splash of pink, right?

So there you have it:  My last card for the wonderful and generous people over at Gel A Tins stamps.

I have had a lot of fun here and hope that you have enjoyed the things I have shared.

“All DOLLED UP!” with Cheery Lynn Dies and WOW Embossing Powders

6 Apr
Today I am using my Cheery Lynn Dies along with some fabulous stamps and embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powders by the lovely Suzy West.
I cam across this adorable bookmark on Etsy:
I always look at things and think..ooh, I could do that even though I do not have the exact supplies the original was made out of.  With all my Cheery Lynn Designs dies, I knew I would be able to make my own version of this Japanese Kokeshi doll.  I also knew I wanted to use all of my WOW EMBOSSING GLITTERS and WOW STAMPS to accentuate the patterned papers I was going to use for the doll.
Here is my version…
My doll is much bigger than the bookmark and I have turned it into a plaque rather than a bookmark.
For the doll and clothing I used Scalloped Circle Stackers and Scalloped Oval Stackers.
I enhanced the dies and patterned paper with the Wow Embossing Powders and Stamps. You can see the sparly patterns on the dress and the background and I used one of the WOW STAMPS from the “CALL ME” for the doll’s hair.
The flower and lace embellishments are made with the dies called:  Queen Anne’s Lace, Buttons1 and the MediumMiniature Roses.
The final touch was applying the sweet sentiment attached to an individual Pennant.
I just love how this cute little doll turned out and I hope you do also.

JW Illustrations + WOW Embossing + Momenta = Amazing!

12 Mar

I have a new card to share with you with and added technique.

I want to shoe you how I took a digital stamp and used multiple embossing powders to create a One of a Kind card.

I used the Digital Stamp from Jessica Weible Illustraions called HOT AIR BALLOON

What I did first was to print the image out multiple times and used an embossing pen to lay done the embossing ink and then embossed the Hot Air Balloon in the following colors.  I am using all WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS from the line called Candy Counter Collection.

After I embossed all the colors, I carefully cut each one out and pieced the Hot Air Balloon back together.

Because I am lucky enough to work with Momenta on their D-Lite team, I had some paper and products that matched my balloon perfectly.

The papers I used are from this 5 x 7 Cardstock Pad and stickers from their Kaleidoscope line.

Isn’t this just a bright and cherry card?

Wednesday Wowzer & Giveaway announcement

11 Jan

 

I have been working with some very fun Embossing Powders from WOW.

This is a whole new line and I was so happy to find out I can use them on whatever I want now!

I knew the mushrooms from the Because of You set would be perfect for these powders.

My card is based on a sketch you can find on the Chick Challenges website.  It is Chick Challenge #10.
Because I photographed this indoors at night you can’t really see the shine of the powders.  I love embossing because it gives stamped images that extra Wow effect.

I layered the mushrooms with dimensional foam and since I need the red to stand-out, I used 2 layers of foam.  You can see the foam from this side shot.

 

Here is one last look, I just love the colors and patterns!
Remember I am now officially the Wednesday Wowzer girl..I sure hope I have WOWED you today!
