beautiful mother's day...

Hello A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here today with a Mother's Day card that I made using the new Beautiful Rose stamp and die set.  Both rose images in the set are just gorgeous and so fun to watercolor!! 

I started my card by stamping my image on watercolor cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink.  I then applied gold embossing powder and heat set the image.  Working just a few petals at a time I applied some clean, clear water to the image.  I then added some clean water to my craft mat and added color from my Kuretake Gansai Tambi water color set.  Using a small round brush I colored in the rose adding color where I needed it to get the right shading.  The same process was done with the leaves.  Once the image was dry I die cut it with the main rose die cut.  Some additional watercolor paper was colored with the same green that I used for the leaves and then die cut with the Swirly Vines die.  A panel of white cardstock was die cut with a Polka Dot Rectangle backdrop die.  Before stamping the sentiment I cut up the Swirly Vine die cut and arranged everything on the panel.  In order to get the sentiment nicely spaced I used my mini MISTI stamping tool.  This amazing little tool allows you to do a perfect second stamping if your sentiment or image doesn't come out super crisp the first time around.  Once the sentiement was stamped I adhered the rose and the pieces of the vine.  I absolutely love how this card turned out!!  Since this card is rather clean and simple I'm going to add it to the current Creative with Stamps challenge of CAS.

Celebrate with Flowers!

Hello everyone, Lisa Hoel here with a guest post for you! Mother's Day is sneaking right up on us (it's this Sunday!!) and I have a quick and easy card for you.

Pair some pretty patterned paper with the Daisy and Swirly Vine die sets and you can celebrate mom with flowers that will never fade away. (She might like some to put in a vase too though. ) The daisies I cut from Core'dinations paper so I could sand them a bit to reveal the colored paper core. I used Distress Ink to shade the vines to give them more dimension. It's hard to tell in the photo, but I cut the sentiment from Ranger's sparkly Deco Sheets paper. This is interesting paper because the glitter is actually part of the paper and won't flake or rub off and get over everything. No muss, no fuss!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, no line coloring, Prismacolor pencils, yellow rose
April showers bring pretty May flowers.  Happy May, friends!  Kecia Waters on the blog today, sharing another card made with the new AJVD stamp set "Beautiful Rose".  

Using the no line coloring technique, I stamped the rose image from "Beautiful Rose" very lightly  with Memento Desert Sand onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the rose with Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils.

(Beautiful Rose) Hello

Hey y'all! Happy Friday!
Shelly, here!

Today, I'm sharing a sweet card using some new goodies that are in the store! When I saw the new Beautiful Rose set, I couldn't wait to ink it up! ;)

I kept my card fairly simple. I did some coloring with some colored pencils. Which honestly, I'm no expert at coloring with pencils (let alone markers), though I thought I'd just have some fun with them and see what happens. I have to say, I don't think my rose looks too bad?!...

Once I finished coloring my rose, I did a little fussy cutting with it and placed it aside. After, I stamped on my rose image onto white cardstock. Then (once again) used the Polka Dot Rectangle die with it. After having my card panel I adhered it to my card base, then added my sentiment along with my rose.
Simple, yeah?!...
I'd love to hear what you think?!...

have a beautiful birthday...

Happy Wednesday A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here today with another quick card (I seem to be making a lot of them lately, lol!!) that I made using some of the gorgeous new stamps and dies that were recently added to the A Jillian Vance Design store.   The stamps I used are from the Beautiful Rose stamp set and the die is from the Beautiful Rose die set.  You can buy them as a bundle or separately. 

I was crunched for time this past weekend and so only had time to whip up a quick little card.  I used some patterned paper from the My Mind's Eye On Trend 2 6x6 pad to give my card a bit more interest.  I die cut the word "beautiful" from a piece of patterned paper four times and then adhered them all together.  Another piece of the patterned paper was trimmed down to fit a card front and the word was adhered to the panel.  I then stamped the words "have a" and "birthday" and adhered the panel to my card base.  Like I said... super quick and simple!  I can't wait to pull out my watercolors and create a card using one of the gorgeous rose images in the stamp set!!

Beautiful Rose for Mother's Day Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, rose, Mother's Day
I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be in Akron, OH on Saturday for the Adventures in Stamping Convention.  Jillian had a booth, and this was the first new stamp set I grabbed, "Beautiful Rose".  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

This set is so versatile with the many different possibilities for sentiments.  To make this card, I stamped the beautiful rose image from "Beautiful Rose" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored the rose with Copic markers.  
I built the Mother's Day sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I adhered a strip of patterned paper from Imaginisce along the side and added three small crystal beads to put the finishing touches on this card.

You'll be seeing this rose A LOT from me!  So fun to color!  Pssst...thought I didint' use it on this particular card, there's a coordinating die set that goes with this set, "Beautiful Rose Die Set".

Other Supplies:
