WOW! Embossing and Pink & Main Blog Hop

Hello, everyone! I'm so excited to be participating in the Pink & Main and WOW! Embossing blog hop! I LOVE when I get to mix and match and combine companies! And I ADORE WOW! embossing powders! There are so many colors and different finishes! From opaque to glitter ... even powders that puff when they're heated! How awesome is that!






Pink & Main and WOW! Embossing have joined forces to bring you a special blog hop and prize! Be sure to click through every link in the hop and leave a comment on every blog for your chance to win a $25 gift card to the Pink & Main store as well as a pack of 6 embossing powders and a carrying case from WOW! Embossing! WOAH!! How awesome is that?! The winner will be announced on both the Pink & Main blog as well as the WOW! Embossing blog on Wednesday, October 22nd at 9am EST!






Let's jump in to what I've made!






I used products from the new October release from Pink & Main! I am in LOVE with the Bowtiful stamps! It's a whole stamp set of solid bows! I've shared my secret before ... but I'll share it again! I really do NOT like to color! I much prefer solid stamps so that I can use pretty embossing powders! I paired the Bowtiful stamp set with the new Gift Bag Dies set! I've always wanted a gift bag die set! And this one is the CUTEST!!






I made a little gift bag and card set! I decided to use three different colors of embossing powders from WOW! embossing - Bluetiful, Copacabana, and Fool's Gold glitter embossing powder. I love how well these three colors go together! I used the little bow image to cover up my card base and used the Bluetiful embossing powder to give them some color. I embossed the large bow image with Fool's Gold embossing powder and die cut it with the Bowtiful coordinating dies. I added a sentiment strip that I embossed with the Copacabana powder!






I just LOVE how glittery that Fool's Gold powder is!






I wanted to make a matching gift bag, so I used the same three powders and a similar layout. I die cut the main bag die piece twice and stamped the sentiment in the middle and embossed it with Copacabana powder. I stamped the two large bows and embossed them with Fool's Gold powder and covered the rest of the bag with the small bow image with Bluetiful embossing powder. The Gift Bag Die set comes with a bunch of small coordinating dies - including the little tag! I stamped a coordinating sentiment onto the tag from the Bowtiful stamp set and tied it on with some baker's twine!






Thank you so much for checking out my project for the Pink & Main and WOW! Embossing blog hop! Remember to comment on every stop in the hop for your chance to win a $25 gift card to the Pink & Main store as well as a pack of 6 embossing powders and carrying case from WOW! Embossing!

Beth Duff Designs Game Time Stamp Set

Hi, everyone! My family loves football! How about yours? Of course we like different teams, so today I made a card with the Beth Duff Designs Game Time stamp set for my husband using his team colors and I even tweaked the stamps a bit to customize them to his team!






I started by drawing some pencil lines about 5/8" and 1 1/4" from the bottom and used my Gansai Tambi watercolors in Mid Yellow and Black to add some small vertical stripes in two rows across my card. Make sure you don't watercolor over the pencil lines or you won't be able to erase them! I stamped the three images from the Game Time stamp set and used some washi tape to mask off the "77" that was on the jersey and used a Copic Multiliner to draw in the "7" as well as the emblem on the helmet. I added a sentiment and popped up my images with foam tape!






Make sure you watch the video below! Jax makes a special guest appearance at the end to inspect my work! Haha!!


Thanks for watching!
