Catherine Pooler + Wow! Blog Hop + GIVEAWAYS!

Welcome to the Catherine Pooler & Wow! Blog Hop!  You're sure to find tons of inspiration for using Catherine Pooler's products and Wow! embossing powders & glitters!  


First, let me just tell you that if you don't have any Wow! Embossing Powders, you're missing out!  They have TONS of gorgeous colors to choose from (click the links to take a look for yourself).  Below are a few of the colors that I have and the variety and shine and glitter is amazing!


(Shown here: Sunset Boulevard, Persian Indigo, Emerald City, 
Raspberry Coulis, Clear Hologram Sparkle & Turkish Nights)

Celebrate You
I felt like all this sparkle called for a celebration card!  

Jen Carter WOW CP Fireworks Celebrate

For this card I die cut several of Catherine Pooler's Sunburst die.  I LOVE this die!  I find so many uses for it.  Here, it became fireworks!  For the sentiment I stamped one of the sentiments from the recent Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval Collection (if you don't have it, it'll be in the shop soon so keep a look out!).  The stamp set is called Woohoo.

Jen Carter WOW CP Fireworks Celebrate Closeup

For the fireworks, I die cut two of the sunbursts from white cardstock and 2 from colored cardstock that I embossed on top of.  I'll start at the bottom left hand side and work up clockwise to share what each color of embossing powder is.  The bottom left aqua firework is Clear Hologram Sparkle Embossing Glitter embossed on aqua cardstock.  I love how it picks up the color behind it!  The two 1/2 fireworks are Persian Indigo Embossing Glitter embossed on raspberry cardstock.  The top left green firework is Emerald City Embossing Glitter (I'm from Kansas, I had to have Emerald City, LOL!) and it is embossed on white cardstock. It has such a beautiful coverage doesn't it?!  Top right is the gorgeous Turkish Night Embossing Glitter embossed on white cardstock.  And then last is the 1/2 firework that was embossed on raspberry cardstock with the Persian Indigo Embossing Glitter.

I have a short 30 second video below that shows how the glitters shine as the light hits them.


Could you see in the video how beautiful those tiny stamped stars from the new Starlights Stamp Set looked embossed in the Clear Hologram Sparkle Embossing Glitter?  Oh my goodness this stuff is amazing!  I love how the colors change like a rainbow as the light hits them!

Marianne said...

Ha, guess what I've been trying to do this evening. Playing with a new to me stencil trying to mimick Nanette's Tag You're It card by playing with textures from foiling and embossing paste + rose gold ep. This did not go exactly according to plan and definitely did not turn out as pretty as your card. I'm determined to salvage my own little project, though. Wish me luck...

LOVE, Love, love this, so pretty!
