WOW! Embossing Powder & Kat Scrappiness Blog Hop

WELCOME to the WOW! Embossing Powder & Kat Scrappiness Blog Hop!

Here is my project for you today:

Welcome to the WOW! Embossing Powder & Kat Scrappiness Blog Hop! We have TWO days of inspiration for you using Kat Scrappiness Stamps, Dies, and Embellishments and WOW! Embossing Powders. And of course there are amazing PRIZES!

WOW! Embossing Powders is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to either their UK or USA Store and Kat Scrappiness is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to their store. All you need to do to win is COMMENT. The more blogs you comment on the more chances you have to win! The winners will be chosen at RANDOM from ANY of the blogs on the two day hop.

Now on to my card. I used the WOW! Trio Cosmic 'Seth Apter' set to add texture on my galaxy background. These powders provide so much dimension to an otherwise flat surface.
I lay down the colors first on the cardstock. I used Distress Oxide Inks because they are not completely dry when applied and it allows the embossing powder to adhere to the surface. Next, one by one I sprinkle the embossing powders to certain spots on the surface. I tap off the excess and brush off any powders that I don't want. Lastly, I apply my heat gun and let the magic happen.

These cute images and sentiment are from KS Koala-Ty Time Stamp Set. The mother/baby and heart are both colored with Copic markers. The sentiment is stamped on black cardstock and embossed with WOW! EP - Opaque Bright White

To create the wavy stitching detail on the white cardstock, I used the KS Wonky Wavy Stitched Rectangle Dies. Then I used the KS Embossed Edge Circle Dies to cut the galaxy background and circle window. The white cardstock is adhered with foam dimensional tape, as well as the Koala and heart image. The circle galaxy is inlaid thru the window opening. To finish off the card, I wanted more sparkle, so I placed KS Silver Jewels on my background and on the bottom right of the card.

THANK YOU for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a fabulous hop!

This is my first project using the images and dies. Here I created this card using three out of the four images included in this kit. How adorable is the doggie?! The Retro TV dies and images are layered on top of a Large Stitched Tags Die cut. 

The illusion of a carpet was created using Pierced Scalloped Circles and Stitched Nesting Circles dies. The sentiment chosen for this card was "for my chair-ished friend". Situated on the bottom of the card are a few of the popcorn die cuts. All images are colored with Copic markers, as well as some of the die cuts.

For my second project, I created this shaker card. I tried to mimic a popcorn machine as the shaker portion of the card by using the Scalloped Rectangles Die and the Large Stitched Tags Die (used in the inside for the stitched details). 

The awning used multiple Popcorn Dies lined up together. I also adhered them together to create a larger size popcorn container. The sentiment "movie night" is on a die cut from the Horizontal Pocket Die set. I added some Double Stitched Stars Die cuts in the background. For added detail, inside the shaker window, I placed some popcorn die cuts on foam adhesive. Lastly, gold sequin and jewels accent the card. All the images are colored with Copic markers. On both projects, all the popcorn toppers and individual kernel die cuts were inked with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.
