Technique Tuesday & WOW! Embossing Powder Blog Hop + Giveaways!


Welcome to Day 2 of the Technique Tuesday & WOW! Embossing Powder Blog Hop! If you missed Day 1, head over to Technique Tuesday's blog post HERE and hop along. We have prizes so be sure to hop along on both days and comment for your chance to win! Today, you should've arrived from the WOW! Embossing Powder Blog, your first stop for Day 2 of this fun collaboration hop.


My projects feature the Sweet Summertime stamp set, Sweet Summertime dies, and Cool & Sweet Words dies. I previously featured the Sweet Summertime stamp set HERE.  Yup, I can pretty much combine any stamp set with a squirrel. 🤪😂


All images were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink before being watercolored with distress inks (listed below) and heat embossed with various WOW! Embossing Powders. For those of you who've been following me for a while, you'll know that I love combining classic fonts with scripted ones so I wanted to use both the Cool & Sweet Words dies with words and phrases from Sweet Summertime. I stamped specific treats to go with the custom sentiments.


I specifically used the three ice cream cones so I could feature the Bursting With Color Trio. I added Clear Sparkle to the cones themselves and to heat emboss the base layer of the Cool & Sweet Words dies. The top layer was heat embossed with Black Twinkle Glitter. Both of these together are so sparkly in person!


I think we all know that anything can be made into a wreath, including fruit. It looks delicious, doesn't it? LOL I added Primary Pink Lady on the strawberries and watermelon, Black Twinkle Glitter on the watermelon seeds, and Berryburst on the blueberries.


Since the first card was too clean and simple, I used the Cars on the Border die to dry emboss some details on the panel before adhering all of the elements. I also felt it was too wide for the design so I trimmed a quarter inch off the width, making it a sleeker and more proportional card.
