Hi there, it's Gina
and the Powder Puff Girls! We are starting off May with an amazing array of projects to get you inspired.
First up is an amazing card set by Jennifer Roach. I love the bright colors she used on these, so eyecatching!

Next up, we have an altered canvas by Birgit Koopsen. Can you say WOW? That background with the mixed colors and embossed stars is simply amazing!
Let's go dancing canvas by DT member Birgit Koopsen
the bottom part with Versamark (I did not color the cardboard shape) and
embossed it with WOW! Clear gloss ultra high. I sprinkled tiny little glass
beads in the heated embossing powder while it was still hot and fluid. Then
I panted the skirt with acrylic paint and stamped on it with Versamark using
the WOW! Vintage wallpaper stamp. I embossed it with WOW! Earthtone Honey
regular. The stars behind the dress form where made using Punchanella and
Versamark and then also embossed with WOW! Earthtone Honey regular.
Next, we have a layout by Katarina Damm-Blomberg. I love Katarina's style and how she always leaves an elegant amount of white space on her layouts.

Now, we have a very beautiful spring themed card by Patti Hamil. I love how Patti used the Gratitude stamp set on this.

Wow Embossing Powders - Suzy West Collection - Gummy Bear Green
Wow Embossing Powders - Suzy West Collection - California Sunshine
Wow Flowers Clear Stamp
DCWV Patterned Paper - Lemon Flower Stack
Prima Flowers and Lace
Distress Ink - Mustard Seed
The Flowers Background was stamped with Versamark and embossed with the Gummy Bear Green powder onto white cardstock. The whole image was re-inked using the Mustard Seed Distress Ink, and covered with the California Sunshine powder. Layering the two powders not only gave depth to the colors but added extra dimension.
Next, we have a fun Gothic art piece by Jan Hennings. Jan always amazes us with amazing altered items!
Gothic Art by DT Jan Hennings
Brocade Stamp Set 4 (WOW), Metallic Copper Embossing Powder (WOW), Gothic Arches (Coffee Break Design), Black Acrylic Paint, Pattern Paper (Paper Studio), Berry Red Cardstock (Worldwin), Alpha’s (Paper Studio), Gems (Prima and making memories), Frame (Hobby Lobby)
And last is a layout that I created. I tried to step out of my comfort zone and play with a more elegant look. I did not use any stamps on this project, instead I used the WOW! embossing pen to trace the edges of my banners and flowers before dipping them in embossing powders.
