Wow Embossing Powder Blog Hop with Catherine Pooler

by - June 25, 2018


Hi there! Today I am so grateful to be a part of the WOW Embossing Powder and Catherine Pooler Designs blog hop. We've got lots of great inspiration and prizes for you today. It's a big hop, so lets just jump right in!

Here's a video for my first card showing how I used Aladdin and Rose Glintz powders together with the brand new and already super popular Twisted Sunburst stencil. Check it out below.


Next, I decided to go a bit of a different route. We've got the sun so lets get some stars on the board. Here I created this peaceful starry night scene but actually had in mind those old bead curtains you'd hang in doorways. You know the ones; for some reason people preferred them to doors in the 70's.


Not sure why that popped into my head but I couldn't shake the thought, so I created this using Cloud 9 embossing powder for the stars and a white gel pen for the "beads". I also used Catherine's brand new Starlight stamp and coordinating die set on a background of light blue watercolor night sky. 

Finally, I wanted to show that embossing doesn't always mean sparkles. Most of us love them but I definitely know a few people who twitch at the thought of glitter getting everywhere. WOW has a great line of powders that have no glitter and are just as beautiful.


I used the new Say It In Diamonds stamp set to create a "leafy" background using Garden Party and Seafoam inks. For the two leaf diamonds surrounding the center saying, I used WOW's Earthtone Olive powder to bring some more color and texture to the design without adding unnecessary shimmer. Finally, I finished it off using some of Catherine's new Paisley's & Peacocks patterned paper as the lining for the envelope. 



Now let's get to the prize info! Be sure to comment on each stop along the hop for your chance to win some pretty fabulous prizes. 

First, Catherine Pooler will be giving away the Life Of The Party ink set! Thats 8 inks! 

WOW Embossing Powders will be giving away ANY 6 powders of your choosing PLUS a WOW carrying case to store them in. 

So be sure to comment for your chance to win and follow along with the hop here:
