Onto my creations now. I have two cards to share today where I used Whimsy Stamps products combined with WOW! Embossing Powders

Here is my first card using Whimsy's Sunflower Background stamp, the Butterflies clear stamp set and
Sympathy Life Goes On
I stamped the sunflower and sentiment onto kraft cardstock and embossed with WOW! Opaque Bright White embossing powder.

I used the following products from WOW! Embossing: Opaque Bright White embossing powderTurkish Nights embossing glitter and Metalline Himalayan Musk embossing powder. These embossing powders are awesome and they melt beautifully.


The smaller butterfly was embossed using Turkish Nights embossing glitter and the larger on top with Metalline Himalayan Musk .  I love the sheer shine of the Metalline embossing powders. 

Here is a closer look on the embossed butterflies:






Now on to my second project. This time I used the Farmhouse Basket Stencil , the Special Large Word Die and the You're My Favorite clear stamps sentiment set from Whimsy Stamps .


On this card I used the following products from WOW! Embossing: Metalline First Frost Embossing Powder and Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter.



I created my own glitter paper by embossing a larger area on a piece of white cardstock with Clear Sparkle Embossing Glitter. Then I cut out the word special with the Special Large Word Die.


To create the background I used the Farmhouse Basket Stencil with an embossing ink and embossed using WOW's Metalline First Frost embossing powder.
