WOW! Embossing Powder <--YOUR NEXT STOP IS HERE

For this first card, I used the Stars on the Border craft die to cut two fancy borders for my white panel.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment from the Spectacular Memories set using Red Glitz powder.  


Then I die cut the border two more times from pieces of cardstock that I had embossed using Red Glitz and Pacific Wave embossing powders.

I cut a panel of dark blue cardstock, and after adding a bit of tone on tone stamping at the top and bottom borders using Versamark and the star border from the Spectacular Memories stamp set, popped my white die cut panel up using foam tape.  

I then randomly added my die cut embossed stars using foam tape.  I also added a few stars onto the white panel itself as well as on the dark blue background.  


For a bit of extra interest and texture, I stamped the card base with some of the fireworks images using Versamark before I adhered the blue panel.  Aren't those sparkly stars gorgeous?!

For my next card, I started by stamping and embossing the sentiment with Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder.  Then I used the different fireworks images around the sentiment, embossing them with Red Glitz, Pacific Wave, and Gold Metallic Sparkle.  These embossing powders have so much brightness and sparkle to them!

Then I used Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to ink the background of my panel, lighter towards the center and darker around the edges.  It really makes those embossing powders pop don't you think?


You can get another glimpse of the sparkle and shine in this close up.


OK, you're almost done, your next stop is the last one:  WOW! Embossing Powder

AND, I have a special giveaway.  If you'd like to win the Technique Tuesday products I used on my cards (the Spectacular Memories stamp set and Stars on the Border craft die), head over to my instagram (@mprantner) and follow the directions there.  Good luck and happy hopping!

  3. Years ago before I discovered stamping, I made a layout that included fireworks. This stamp would have been SO much easier to use (& looked better) than making them all myself!
