Picket Fence Studios & WOW! Embossing Powder Blog Hop

Hi!  I am so excited to take part in the Picket Fence Studios and WOW! Embossing Powder Collaboration!  WOW! EP and Picket Fence Studios go together like sunshine and blue skies!  I hope you enjoy viewing my samples as much as I enjoyed creating them.  You can find all the blog hop details below.  :)

  I love dishware.  I just love it. I love patterns, shapes, weight, just all the things!  So I set out to create a cup that would take a hot beverage up a notch! First, I created a cup with the Picket Fence Studios Coffee Mug Die. Then I coated it with clear embossing powder and heat set it three times.  Once the cup was "glazed" to my satisfaction, I took the heat gun and softened the glaze in spots while sprinkling Queen of Hearts Embossing Powder on the cup.  After the entire cup was speckled to my heart's desire it was time to add a finishing touch. I tapped the top of the cup onto the embossing glue pad to make the top extra sticky.  Then I coated the top with the Queen of Hearts EP and heat set.  I did the same for the bottom of the cup.  Lastly,  I added a sentiment from Hey Girl


Next up is a bright and cheerful card featuring Picket Fence Studios Flowers Stencil and Fizz WOW! Embossing Powder.  The fizz is such a fun magenta powder with silver and white flecks.  It looks great on the background and on the Hello Word Die.  I just love to add a critter to my cards for a bit of playfulness so this time I added the cute squirrel from A Little Nuts.  I used a Coordinating Die to cut him out and pop him up.  Isn't he fun?  

With this card, I am also participating in this week's Inspiration Challenge at SCS.


Check out the puff and shine on the HELLO die cut!

For my last card, I used the WOW! Trio Cosmic *Seth Apter* set and the Stars Stencil by Picket Fence Studios.  The heated Trio Cosmic powders sparkle with a beautiful metallic-like finish.  For the finishing touch, I added a sentiment from Fireflies on a Warm Night.

With this card, I am participating in this week's Inspiration Challenge!
