NAtional Scrapbooking Day RAK

Happy Cinco de Mayo and HAPPY NATIONAL SCRAPBOOKING DAY!!!!  As a scrapper, NSD has quickly become one of my favorite holidays!  I love having an excuse to do nothing but scrap all day and participate in different challenges.  Even better, I love all of the generosity in the air.  I will be hanging out over at because they always have great NSD challenges and their prizes rock....I know because I won a RAK last year (and a few years ago).

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.

That's all the project sharing today, now on to the RAK!   (there are more flowers included in the RAK, just couldn't fit them all in the photo)

All you have to do is leave a comment here by 11:59 EST May 6th and you will be entered to win.  I will randomly choose one winner on Monday May 7th.

WOW!!! I am LOVING your canvas you made for your mom. You always do such beautiful work and the subtle details you use, like those delicious embossing powders, are always amazing.

Those embossing powders are quickly becoming a must-have for me. I 'hear' you and several other chicas talking about them on their blogs and I have GOT to try them.
