WOW Embossing and Graciellie Design Collab

Hello Friends! Today I have some cards to share with you that feature both Graciellie Design digis and WOW embossing powder. There's a fun collab hop starting today (on Instagram) with the chance to win a $75 prize pack so be sure to check it out (My Instagram page) Gracie is also having a 35% off sale this week!!!

For this first card I used a gel pen to trace over my digital stamp (printed at about 20% opacity) and then used Angel Eyes WOW embossing powder to really make it pop!!

Supplies and Tools:

For my second card I applied some white gesso through a stencil and while it was still wet I sprinkled embossing powder over the top. I heat set it a bit to melt the powder into the gesso. I love the dimension and texture this adds to a card!

Supplies and Tools:

My last card is a fun phone shaped card featuring Gracie's new "Retro Hello." For this card I added glue to the four sections of my phone and sprinkled on some Crushed Ice Sparkles glitter from WOW!

Supplies and Tools:

Your cards are just gorgeous and I really love the bright aquamarine touches. The iris is so beautiful and is one of my favorite flowers as well.

You mave made three beautiful cards. I love the aquamarine colours against the white and the back sentiment on your second card realy stands out. Thanks for joining our challenge at Stamping Sensations with your Iris card. Marlies

Gorgeous cards Esther. My favorite is the first one.
I love the awesome blue hues with the white.
If I understand it correctly, you use the gel pen instead of embossing ink?
Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Esther, all of your cards in the aquamarine tones are so pretty! I love how delicate the first is, and shimmery embossing on the second and wow! That plaid telephone card is so fun! I need a phone like that! Thanks so much for playing along in our Aquamarine challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog!
