WOW! It's a HOP!
Welcome to Day 1 of the Picket Fence Studios Collaboration Hop with WOW! Unrivalled Embossing Powders! Our teams have joined forces to show you some amazing projects today and tomorrow! If you have arrived from Ashlee McGregor's blog, you are right on target. The entire hop list for today is below.
Today I am sharing two cards. The first is made using Succulent Green Paper Glaze, Seahorse Sprinkles and Montserrat Embossing Glitter (Caribbean Trio).
I cut my stenciled panel with a circle die, and the cut out my I Miss You Word Die in black and vellum. I embossed half of the word die with the AMAZING Monserrat Embossing Glitter. It is the COOLEST. Glittery goodness and puffy delights too. I love how it looks on the gray cardstock.
For my base panel, I used the same stencil as an embossing folder, running it through my Big Shot. This added some nice subtle texture on the card base and stretches your stencils too. I added a panel of handmade paper to the middle, and popped up the stenciled panel. Classy and elegant look. What do you think?
For my second card, I used the gorgeous Swallowtail Butterfly stamp for a mixed media project.
I made a monoprint using my GelPress and some Liquitex acrylic paints and then embossed the butterfly on top with VersaMark and Primary Ebony Embossing Powder. I used the same ink and powder on the sentiment (Color Heals the Soul). I added a few sequins for bling.
I am also giving away a PRIZE! I will draw a winner from all comments on my blog on May 11th. My winner will receive a brand new mystery stencil from Picket Fence Studios!
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my creations. You can follow me on Instagram at @joy_in_a_jar.
NEXT UP on the hop is the amazingly talented Karen J Reategui. You will love her gorgeous florals!
