Blog Hop Fun!!...

Hello, hello!

Today is a special day because it is the day that the WOW! Embossing Design Team join up with the Ruby Rock-It guys for a fabulous blog hop!

For anyone who is participating on the hop, you should have arrived here from Beckie's blog.  If not, then I certainly urge you to jump back to the beginning so you don't miss anyone out along the way!  There are beauties and prizes galore, so you won't want to miss out on any of the blogs!

All you need to do to be eligible for our prizes is to leave a comment on each designer's blog and then go back to our blog letting us know you have done so!  Comments will be closing on Friday 21st November at 23:59 PST.  N.B. - You may want to leave a note on both the WOW! and the Ruby Rock-It blogs to say you've been round to see us all as I believe that the prizes below are two separate prizes to be given away - I wouldn't want you guys missing out on the chance to win both!!  ;)

The prizes are...

WOW! Embossing Powder;

and Ruby Rock-It are giving this away...

Pretty cool wouldn't you agree?!!!

We had the pleasure of creating a project using our wonderful WOW! products alongside the beautiful Ruby Rock-It products.  Is anyone surprised that I made a card!?...

For this card I used the papers and twine from the Ruby Rock-It Country Cookin collection.  There are a brilliant mix of rustic style papers of all different kinds from chalkboard tags to these great patterns, which are the papers that particularly caught my eye.  Again...anyone who 'knows' me will not be surprised that these are the papers I was immediately drawn to!

To make this card I die cut the circle from a piece of kraft card and then heat embossed WOW's Sexi-Hexi background stamp using the amazing Clear Matt Dull powder.  I love this powder as when you heat it, it just seems like your average clear embossing powder, but as it cools you can actually watch the finish change from glossy to matte - maybe I'm too easily pleased, but I think it's great!

I placed the striped pattern paper directly onto the card front and adhered the kraft mat on top using foam adhesive to give a little dimension.  The sentiment panel was mounted on a gorgeous piece of the red plaid paper from the collection. The colours of all the papers tie together so well.  I wrapped a small amount of the Ruby Rock-It twine around the kraft card and my card was complete!

I'm not someone who uses patterned papers very often, but I have to admit that this collection was very inspiring and complemented the WOW! stamps and powders perfectly!

Now, you need to get yourselves over to Kaka's blog to find some more treasures there!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and good luck to you all for the prize draw!
