Celebration... by Claudia




Playing and designing with colours that are as highly contrasting as plain red, blue and white can be quite challenging. You need a strong composition that helps fuse all the elements without having anything look too boring. I am not quite sure if I managed to rise up to this challenge - those who know me, know that card making is something that scares hell out of me - so, please, be gentle with me. At least hubby said (knowing about the challenge theme): "Wow! Cool! How did you manage to create the shape of the United States with the Distress Inks?", when he saw the finished card. And then I saw it too...;)

Celebration... by Livia


Hi everyone, Livia here with this months project: 
Canada day 

This canvas like all my other projects have
Been put together with glue a few embellishments,
Modeling paste, stencils, black paint, inka gold rubs 
And of course my favorite EC embossing powders, 
EC Canada day stamp and a EC brad.

The embossed tag turned out awesome with the
Canada day stamp in Patina Oxide and the top
And bottom edges in Burnt Copper
(Love these colors)

The Dream catcher was done in both Deep Sea and
Green sparkle, which looks perfect, love how it turned
Out!
Also embossed are the letters Canada in Chunky Rust
And the outer edge of the canvas, in Hammered metal
I must say I absolutely Love the metal look, 
And the embossing powders make it that much 
Easier! 👍

Celebration... by Stephanie



Hey y'all! Stephanie here from hot and humid west Tennessee! For our Fourth of July/Canada Day theme I created three patriotic USA tags. I had so much fun using Emerald Creek embossing powders to make this project extra special!


Below are the Emerald Creek products I used for the tags:


I stamped the patriotic images on scrap watercolor paper with embossing ink and promptly added Patina OxideAncient Amber and Dirty Sand to the stamped images.  Added a little heat and watched the magic happen. I watercolored the stamped images with distress inks. 


I also embossed the embroidered trim used on the Statue of Liberty tag. You can see it in the image below. It was first covered with Vintage Beeswax and then randomly added Patina Oxide to the mix. I had previously colored papers with distress inks for the base of the tags. 


To finish the tags I just arranged them and adhered with glue dots and pop dots for dimension. Some red, white and blue ribbons adorn the top and accented with Emerald Creek Circle Dot Brads

I absolutely love how beautifully these turned out! The edges of the tags are embellished with coordinating Emerald Creek embossing powders. Just for the record Patina Oxide is PERFECT for the Statue of Liberty! 


Dirty Sand on the flag added just the right amount of texture and gave it a vintage feel. I hope you enjoyed the tags as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Celebration... by Josefine





I'm celebrating art by creating two little ATCs with a magical theme. I just love those small pieces of art and am always surprised on how much you can actually add. For these two, I decided to use the Faerie and Oriental Dragon stamp, as well as the Baked Texture embossing powder in Ancient Amber and Vintage Beeswax. But see for yourself in my little video:

Celebration... by Karla



Hello! It's Karla back today for our Patriotic 4th of July/Canada Day theme this month. Just thinking about Canada Day - which isn't that far off - gets me feeling excited for summer! I created a fun layout using a photo of my two younger girls last summer and created lots of customized embellishments using the wonderful Emerald Creek Embossing Powders.


I coordinated my title, using the Oh Canada Embossing Powder, with the Wild Whisper Strong & Free collection, and layered my papers using the June Scrap Shotz challenge sketch.


I embossed the cork star and wood veneer leaf with Charred Gold and Spiced Candy powders and clustered them with some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins. I love how everything works so well together!


The Soft Fallen Snow powder creates a lovely soft embossed image using the Strong & Free sentiment, and the Patina Oxide powder works great on the cork arrow.


I layered more embossed images and cork along the bottom of the layout and even used some embossing powder on the background stamp behind the paper layers! This layout is going to look great displayed in my bonus room to celebrate our upcoming summer activities.


Be sure to check out the VIDEO where you can see the process I used to create this layout and get some tips on using embossing powders to create your own customized embellishments!
