Blog Hop With WOW! and Pink And Main

Today I’m super excited to be able to bring you a blog hop between the team at WOW! Embossing Powder and Pink And Main and boy are you in for a treat!

I was so pleased to have been sent this butterfly stamp set called “You Can Fly” and it’s coordinating die and couldn’t wait to try it out.

You Can Fly by Pink And Main

The butterfly stamp was just crying out to be stamped on acetate and the results didn’t disappoint. I ended up stamping and embossing in several different powders just to see how they looked. I used Rose Gold, Metalline Himalayan Musk, Long Island Teal and  Calypso Embossing Glitter.

As well as the brand new heat tool from WOW! Embossing Powders which is absolutely amazing! You have to get one!

With all those left over butterflies the only thing to do was to show them off by gluing them to some twisted hazel twigs and putting these into a glass bowl.

Anyway, that’s enough about me, please go on and discover all the other inspirational projects the other designers have to offer.

The Blog Hop prize announcement will be made on Wednesday, October 22, 2018, on both Pink & Main & WOW! Embossing blog. The Prizes to be won are a $25 gift certificate to Pink & Main store, 6 x powders + carry case from the WOW! Embossing Powder Store.

WOW and Pink Fresh Studio Blog Hop

Hello there! All this week the team at WOW Embossing Powders are joining forces with the fabulous Pink Fresh Studio Creative Team for a fun-filled Blog Hop.
Blog hops bring so much inspiration and here we are bringing you a wonderful, creative and inspirational line up. Not only will you be inspired BUT if you leave a comment on each designer’s blog, you’ll earn a chance to win 6 powders from your choosing along with a WOW carry case to store you powders safely in.
Pink Fresh Studio will be offering a gift card worth a whopping $50
I was very generously given the opportunity to use a stamp and die set from Pink Fresh and I chose to use this cute Forest Friends set. As a lover of the forest and forest friends every day on my dog walks and being surrounded by the forest here in Luxembourg I simply had to have it.  The die too is an absolute must to be able to create this beautiful dimensional look.
I used Primary Chartreuse from WOW on the background as it’s such a gorgeous green shade and British Summer to stamp the little animal friends as it’s not so dark as an obvious black. I also stamped the little bear a second time and cut him out to layer up creating even more dimension.
Here are a couple of better looks at it.
The Winners from the hop will be chosen at random from the comments left on ALL OF THE POSTS from this blog hop by 7th September 2018 and the will be announced on the WOW blog the week of 10th September 2018.
If you are hopping along, you should have come from the blog of Gemma Campbell.
Your next stop is our very own Jo Herbert.
If you get lost along the way, head back over to the WOW! Embossing Powder / Pink Fresh Studio blog for the complete list of designers joining in the hop.
 
Jaine Drake – That’s me!
Good luck and happy hopping

A Rainbow Of Colours

I’m so happy right now to have my workspace studio in my basement because believe me when it’s 38° outside the basement is the only place I want to be. If I open the back door to go out it’s like standing in front of the oven so I’m here squirrelled away as much as possible so I won’t melt.

It means I can get lots of things done and plan for all the new projects ahead.

As it’s August already there’s a new challenge on the WOW Embossing Powders Facebook page and the theme this month is “Rainbow”. What better excuse for bringing out as many colours of powder as is possible on one project? Plus it’s a wonderful excuse for going a little bit mad – not that I need an excuse.

On the card below I created a watercolour background over stamped and embossed butterflies from Pretty Pink Posh and added a floral die cut border embossed with various colours of powder.

An Update From The Studio

Good morning from a the sunny Dutch coast where we’re taking a few days break to recharge and rest. It’s the first time taking the dog too so his reaction to the sea will be priceless.

This week it was my turn to post on the WOW blog and the theme for the month is Embossing Glitter. I’m really embracing my glittery side and find myself adding some to almost everything these days. I never thought I’d say that.

I have this awsome stamp set from Jane Davenport which I used on this card and thought it reminded me of Asian art which inspired me to go for this Asian design.

WOW And Catherine Pooler Blog Hop

Hello there, I hope you’re all good and ready for another week of fun and inspiration. Today marks the start of the blog hop between WOW Embossing powders and Catherine Pooler and I’m totally thrilled to be part of it.
I fell in love with this stamp from the “Love Is In The Air” set the minute I set eyes on it as it’s just gorgeous. I can see it’ll become one of my go to stamp sets in the future as it’s so virsatile.
As well as the stamp set I also used two beautiful Catherine Pooler ink pads and created the watercolour background by smooshing some on my craft mat and spritzing it with water. You really don’t need much as the colour is so juicy and intense.
I used Chocolate Caramel Pearl powder from WOW to emboss the image and the contrast is perfect.

Pretty In Pink Baby Card

Happy Monday from a very stormy and wet Luxembourg. I hope the weather’s good where you are?

This week marks a very significant change for me as next monday I’m going to be having a full hysterectomy done. Without going into lots of horrid details basically it’s something I’m actually looking forward to as it’s been a long while coming. By a twist of fate this weekend was Mothers Day here as if to make a point but I’m not sad about it, in fact I think I’m ready for this next phase of my life. I’ve had my beautiful girls and couldn’t want anything more. Grandmother-hood bring it on.

Funnily enough I was also asked to make this new baby card recently which also set me off thinking about grandkids.

Pretty, girly and sweet with a pinch of glitter was the brief I set for myself so that’s what I did using my WOW embossing glitter and some shiny Glintz powders to cover my die cuts.

I love the dimension too it really brings it all to life.

It’s up on the WOW blog today and if you haven’t taken part in the hop yet I suggest you go over there and first read my post and then find out about the hop. There are some super prizes to be won.

Anyway I’m off as I’ve a busy week ahead.

Lots of love

Foiled Projects

We’re already half way through April and before you know it we’ll be in May and looking forward to Summer. That does scare me a little bit. When I was younger time seemed to drag by so very slowly I was wishing my days away but now I think it’s like being on a bob slay ride. I’ve still got lots of things to cross off my to do list from New Year and new things are being added all the time.  It’s the same for all of us I suppose. We just have to make every second count and try not to waste any.

The reason for the rant was because I can see from my blog that I’ve not been keeping my posts up as frequently as I should. Time has been going by so fast I’ve not had chance some weeks to sit and write.  Anyway, I think you’d much prefer the pretty pictures so here are a few.

Last week I had a project up on the WOW blog where this months theme is Foils. I adore using foils especially through a stencil as I did here.

At the same time WOW are also running their monthly challenge over on the their Facebook group where anyone can join in with a project. Again Foils are the theme and here I simply used the foil with some double sided tape to create a border around my April bullet journal page.

I’m practicing my hand lettering too and the more I do the better it gets.

Have a good week
