For my first card today, I started by prepping sme navy card stock with my anti-static powder bag. I then stamped the gorgeous Butterfly Background image using my Versamark ink pad.  I then sprinkled on the Metallic Gold Sparkle embossing powder from WOW. I absolutely love the gold sparkle this gives.

I trimmed my panel down and then adhered it to a panel of gold mirror card stock. I stamped and embossed my sentiment which is from the awesome Happy Sayings set from Whimsy Stamps. Some gold sequins finish off this card.

Here's a closeup of the detail that this gorgeous image paired with the beautiful sparkle embossing powder from WOW gives. I absolutely love it.


For my second card, I started by taking my Versamark ink pad and literally smearing it over an entire white card panel. I then sprinkled the Metalline First Frost WOW Embossing Powder all over the top of it to create the nice blue panel you see below.  

After this panel was cool, I then took stamped the Bouquet image from Whimsy Stamps over top of my heat embossed panel with more Versamark. 

I then used the Oceanic embossing powder from WOW to cover my image. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment which is from the Furever in our Hearts set from Whimsy Stamps and also heat embossed it with the same Oceanic powder.

I'm loving navy at the moment and the card you made is stunning. I never would have thought to heat emboss a full panel but it looks beautiful. A new technique to add to my list thanks.
