For my card today, I am showcasing the White Twinkle embossing powder from Wow! and the Thanksgiving Gnome stamp set by Kat Scrappiness, along with the new Zig-zag Nesting Slimline die.  



To begin, I die-cut a panel of Bristol smooth white card stock using the biggest die from the Zig-Zag Nesting Slimline die set.   I cut this piece to 5 1/2 to fit my A2 size card base. 


I used some painter’s tape to mask the edges and ink-blended this panel with some distress oxide inks.  I also stamped the tree and leaves in the background with some black ink.


The Gnomes were stamped and colored with my Spectrum Noir TriBlend markers, and die-cut using my Brother Scan N Cut machine.  I adhered them onto the background with some glue.



The sentiment was stamped using versamark ink and heat-embossed using the Wow! White Twinkle Embossing Powder.  I know it looks muted on the photo but it looks so glittery in person!


I added some patterned paper on an A2 size card base and adhered the inked background.  I finished my design by adding a few leaves from the Happy Fall Y’all stamp set.  Here’s another look:

Newton’s Nook Designs & Wow Collaboration Week


Newton’s Nook Designs and WOW embossing powders are collaborating all week long to offer you inspiration using their products together!  Both design teams will be sharing fun ways to use embossing powders on your projects using WOW embossing powders paired with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps!  We also have a GIVEAWAY so please make sure to read at the end of this blog post to find out how you can WIN.


For my project today, I am showcasing the Fall-ing For you stamp set, Autumn Leaves die set, Pines & Holly die set, with the White Puff Embossing powder by Wow!


To start, I inked up some Bristol smooth white card stock with some peacock feathers and broken china distress oxide inks.  I used my distress sprayer to spray some water on the background and dabbed it with paper towel to dry.


I die-cut the leaves using the Autumn leaves die set with some colored card stock and vellum.   I also die cut some pine needles using one of my favorite dies, the Pines & Holly die set.


I die-cut a frame using a die from my stash and added foam adhesive to this piece and set this aside.  I stamped the sentiment from the Fall-ing For You stamp set with some Versamark ink on the colored background.  I poured some White Puff embossing powder and heat-set this using my Wagner heating tool.  I foam-mounted the frame that I die-cut earlier onto my colored background.


Lastly, I added the leaves with some liquid and foam adhesives and also adhered the bow.  I added some brown jewel to finish the design.  Here’s my card:




I think combining the Fall-ing For you stamp set with the Autumn Leaves die set makes the perfect fall-theme card.  It’s simple but creates a huge impact.  This is also my first time using some Wow! Embossing powder and I really LOVE it!  Here’s a little close-up of the card:
