WOW! Embossing Powder & A Jillian Vance Design Collaboration Blog Hop

Yay, it’s time for another blog hop.

WOW! Embossing Powder is collaborating with the beautiful A Jillian Vance Design   creative team.

It wouldn’t be a hop without PRIZES, right?

Both WOW! Embossing Powder and A Jillian Vance Design will be giving away a $25 Gift card each to our stores. 

So there will be TWO winners!

This hop will run for a week only and the winners will be announced on Friday, October 28th. So, be sure to check back on WOW! Embossing Powder and A Jillian Vance Design blog then.

To be entered to win a prize all you need to do is leave a comment here and each of the designer’s blog posts PLUS on both WOW! Embossing Powder and A Jillian Vance Design. I have included the full line up list below.

But first here are a couple of my cards for the hop.

I tried to get a slightly muted mint ombre blending going on here. To do that I used Hickory Smoke distress oxide ink for the darkest layer.
Tip: if you don’t have all the colors in a collection I tend to add grey tones and some times a brown tone depending on the colour hues I am playing at the time.
For the first card I played with the Jingle all the Way stampset. and repeat heat embossed with Opaque Bright White embossing powder the jingle bells repeatedly to create my own background.
I tried to keep with the ombre theme with the sentiment as well by pressing the sentiment with the lightest ink first then working m way to the darkest and being really gentle with tapping on the ink working my way up the stamp.
For my second card, I have heat embossed a whole panel of the Vintage Peacock Embossing Glitter then die cut the Jingle Bells out. I did the same for the Gold Sparkle Embossing Glitter.
TIP: I usually heat emboss heaps of panels in a variety of colors ready to die-cut for future projects.
I delved into my hoard vault of papers and found this Teresa Collins Tinsel and Company paper. Do you guys do the same? I have a tone of paper in my hoard vault LOL
