The more comments you leave along the hop, the more chances to win! Not to mention, inspiration to collect along the way!!
Right, with all that out of the way, let’s get to my cards, shall we?
I picked out the same colours of Catherine Pooler inks: Limoncello, Orange Peel, Rockin’ Red, Grape Crush, Suede Shoes, Aquatini and Lime Rickey. I also picked out matching, or as close as possible, glitter powders from WOW! Embossing: Sorbet, Tangerine Dream, Rockin’ Red, Tickle, Something Blue, Curacao and Lime Rickey. Oh and the Embossing Pad, of course.
With MISTI in one hand and inks in the other, I was just about to go to town when I had an idea. As it would no doubt be a bit fiddly to get it done without getting the glitters mixed up, I thought why not mix some clear embossing powder with the new Changers and add sparkle like that. In a little tub I mixed some of the Glisten powder with clear embossing powder and violá! Glitter added without much fiddling and colours getting mixed up.
It turned out fabulous, if I may say so myself. Due to some miscalculations where to stamp the Smile bit, I had to skip out on the purple one though. Oh well, it left space for the rest of the sentiment to be added without overlapping so it worked out ok anyway.
It almost took on a violet hue after I set the embossing powder with my heat tool! So cool!
While I had all the inks and glitter powders out, I thought, why not make another one? This time I used the Beautiful stamp from the Beautiful Sentiment.
With that, I’m all done for today! I hope you like these cards as much as I enjoyed making them. Now it’s time to hop on to the next person on the list and don’t forget to leave comments along the way to be in with a chance to win the prizes! Winners will be announced the week of May 11th!
