Spread Joy Not Germs

I hope you are all doing safe and well. I’m so excited to be able to participate in the #SpreadJoyNotGerms Blog Hop. Thanks for stopping by to check out my cards as part of the WOW! Embossing Blog. Scroll down for more details on the Blog Hop as well as information on prizes you could win!

Here are the cards I made using some awesome WOW! Embossing Powders and The Ton’s Gardenia Garden Background and Essentials by Ellen Be Strong Set.

I love this stamp and it is perfect for dramatic embossing since it had solid portions as the background of these beautiful flowers.

I started out picking the colors I wanted to emboss my cards.

I used Black Glintz, Bahama (Trio Caribbean), and Sunflower (part of the Trio Parc). I love all these gorgeous colors and then went about choosing Color Burst Colors that would work well.

For my first card I chose Rouge and then added the Cornflower Blue.

I love the dramatic look of the blue with a black sparkle background. I die cut the strong sentiment from Essentials by Ellen several times and attached it to my card.

For my second card, I used the beautiful Bahama embossing powder and paired it with Naples Yellow and then added Rouge once the yellow was dry.

The sparkle and white flecks in this Bahama Embossing Powder are so pretty and give any card a pretty accent.

For my third card, I used this gorgeous yellow in Sunflower Embossing Powder. I was surprised at how bright it came out.

I used Cornflower Color Burst and love that it looks like a tapestry. I also love the varied watercolor look that Color Burst gives a project. Simply sprinkle (just a little) and mist and you get a beautiful array of color.
