This holiday puts me in a giving mood, too. At the end of this post, you will find info on how you can enter to win my NSD RAK...but first I have a few projects to share.
This is a special project for a special lady. I'm sure you are aware that April is over, which means Mother's Day is right around the corner.
I used my 2 new favorite (for now) WOW Embossing powders, Clear Gloss Ultra High and Neutral Ultra Shimmer glitter and the Flowers background stamp to create this canvas for mom.
I used Neutral Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter on the flowers, the canvas background and the photo corners. I love how the powders melt to clear glittery gloss allowing the color of the embellishments to shine through.
I sporadically stamped the background with the stamp and embossed with Clear Gloss Ultra High. I used several different inks to add color to the canvas and then used a damp paper towel to remove the ink from the embossing leaving a masked look.
I have to admit, these 2 powders are addictive! I literally had to stop myself from covering the entire canvas in glitter!
I created this next project for WOW Embossing Powders and the product swap week between Pink Paislee and Basically Bare. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big Pink Paislee fan, so getting to work with the Indigo Bleu line AND my favorite Basically Bare products made creating this layout extra fun!
I used Basically Bare Pennants (large), Dress Form, Blossoms & Leaves, Fanciful Frames, and Birds as well as stamps and embossing powders from WOW.
These pennants are some of my new faves!! I covered them with patterned paper, heat embossed using WOW’s neutral ultra shimmer embossing glitter and then layered with wood embellishments and flowers. I used the same powder on the canvas leaf and then outlined with Zig Memory System Millennium pen.
I swear, I can’t get enough of the dress forms!! I peeled the top layer of cardboard off of the bodice, swiped with white acrylic paint and then covered with patterned paper, lace, and a wooden button.
I like to add plain chipboard to a lot of my projects. I think the neutral kraft color gives the viewer’s eye a break.
The Fanciful Frame is the perfect size for a 4×6 photo. I coated the one here with WOW’s Black Glint Embossing Glitter — love that shine!
Last but certainly not least, is the acrylic birdie nestled among the flowers. I use a stamp from WOW Call Me stamp set and staz-on ink to stamp the script writing. I embossed the felt wing with embossing glittered and added a pearl to the eye.
