Hi friends! I am thrilled to be joining in this blog hop with Wow! Embossing and Whimsy Stamps! I have created two cards for you today using the same stamp sets in different ways.


For my first card, I started by embossing this gorgeous background stamp in Etched Platinum. I wanted to really enhance the stain glass look and this was the perfect powder to use to do that. I then watercolored the image.


I love this sentiment set by Whimsy Stamps. You can create so many different encouraging sentiments and I love the mix of fonts. I stamped the YOU ARE in black and then embossed it with Clear Gloss Super Fine. I stamped loved in the same ink but didn't emboss it. I love the mix of texture along with the fonts! 


For my second card, I embossed the background stamp on a dark card stock and embossed it with Capri which is a stunning blue powder mixed with gold glitter. It absolutely pops against the card stock! 


I kept the design for the sentiment simple here by embossing the YOU ARE with Opaque Bright White Super Fine embossing powder and embossed awesome on white card stock (using the same technique as above) and cut it into a banner that I popped up with a thin dimensional adhesive.

Check out the video below or on my YouTube channel to see how I created both of these cards in more detail for you!

When I saw the 1st card I decided it was my favorite. Then I saw the second card and changed my mind. They're both gorgeous! I love how you made the 1st card look like stained glass. It's gorgeous. The 2nd card is so elegant. The color of the embossing powder you used made that card. Thank you for sharing your creations and for inspiring me.
