Welcome to the WOW! Embossing and Jillian Vance Design blog hop where you’ll be wowed (can I say that?) by some amazing inspiration from both design teams.
For my inspirational piece I was very kindly sent this fabulous stamp set from Jillian Vance Design called World Adventure which I fell in love with the minute I saw it. I thought it would be perfect for a travel journal so that’s exactly what I did. I believe there’s also a Christmas version of the same stamp too.
Here’s my travel journal.
From WOW! I used Metalline Flame and Fluorescent Blue to emboss my design. I love how those colours work together.
Of course as it’s a blog hop there are prizes to be won too, from WOW! Embossing Powder the winner will receive a $25 Gift Card, and from Jillian Vance Design a $25 Gift Card.
Winners – Please be sure to leave your comments on each DT blog post (including WOW! Embossing Powder & A Jillian Vance Design blog posts) Please comment on each post to be eligible to win 2 x $25, Gift Card to A Jillian Vance Design or WOW Stores. It will run for one week with the winner announced on Monday, October 28th.
Here is the line up order starting at Jillian Vance Design –
I’m a big fan of Scandinavian design and this stamp set was crying out for this look. Keeping it simple with one colour of embossing powder, Primary Pink Robin, created the traditional folk design I was after.
With a large block it was easy to arrange my stamps in a pattern I liked so I could stamp the whole thing in one go. I only had to add the little leaf stalk afterwards. This sort of design would make a lovely Christmas look too.
The second card uses the die set, simply embossing the elements with Primary Chartreuse and Pink Robin twice to get a nice rich depth of colour. I brought in the Cottage Garden stamps to tie the two cards together just using a British Summer grey powder to keep it simple.

What could say summer more than a dandelion just waiting to explode into the warm air? I think that is probably one of the reasons why I love this stamp set from WOW! Embossing. Teaming it with a simple watercolour background emphasises its delicacy I think!

I was very lucky to be sent this beautiful stamp set by Technique Tuesday called ‘Inspired Dragonfly’ which I love. I can see it becoming a firm go to in my craft box. I also recieved a coordinating die too which you can see on my card below.
