welcome...

Hey AJVD friends!!   Rosemary here with a Friday post for A Jillian Vance Design.  I have been having a lot of fun working with the Home Sweet Home stamp set and the Hoop It Up die set over the last few days and have another card I made using both to share.  I used the layout for this week's Freshly Made Sketches so will be posting it there, as well.


This card is quick and easy to create and could be reproduced using many of the AJVD sets.  I cut some coordinating matter papers and layered them on my cardstock base.  A circle was die cut and them embossed with the circular stitching die from the Hoop It Up set.  Stamped the sentiment, the small heart image in pink and yellow, layered everything up and I was done!

congratulations on your new home!

Hey AJVD fans!!!  Rosemary here today with a card I made using the AJVD set Home Sweet Home.  Before I was a paper crafter I was an avid cross-stitcher and so when I saw the Home Sweet Home set and the companion Hoop It Up die set I just had to have them.  I just love the little cross-stitch elements in the Home Sweet Home set.  I used the stamp set to create a quick congratulations card for someone settling in to a new home.  I used the layout from Sweet Sunday Sketch for my card so I will be posting it there, as well.


I used some coordinating patterned papers that would work well for giving the card to a couple or a single man or woman who purchased the new home.  I cut rectangles from white cardstock and then larger rectangles from the dark purple and dark yellow papers.  The middle heart was stamped in the coordinating yellow using the second generation method (I inked up the heart, stamped it on some scrap paper and then on the cardstock) to get a softer look.  The purple hearts were stamped at full strength.  I die cut the larger panel with the largest die in the Polka Dot Backdrop die set.

Rainbow Birthday Slope

Hi, Lisa Lara here today sharing my
Rainbow Birthday Slope
I just love rainbow colors. 
To get my rainbow, I just doubled stamped my music notes with each color following the line of the slope die. I heat embossed my sentiment for the finishing touch. 
 I was inspired by THIS fun card by Nicole Heady.  


Happy Birthday

Balloon Trio Shaker Birthday Card

Hello there, Lisa Hoel here today with a guest post. I created a fun and whimsical shaker birthday card using the Balloon Trio Die set and fabulously flat AJVD sequins. I'll also share an interesting inking technique! Take a look:

Sentiment inside: …on your birthday.
I love how cheerful these little balloons are. You can cut the balloons with or without the window depending on if you want to make shakers out of them or not. It is easy to do so. Cut a solid back, a solid one out of thin clear plastic (I used an overhead transparency sheet), and a front balloon with the window cut out. Glue the front piece onto the clear balloon. When it's dry, cut thin strips of adhesive foam and make an enclosed frame between the front and back layers to hold all the sequins. Don't forget to fill your shaker before you stick the back on! ;-)

As for the inking tip, it's an oldie but goodie. Tap multiple colors of Distress Ink over your stamp surface and mist two or three times with water. Then stamp onto watercolor paper and dry it immediately with your heat tool. You get a softly blended watercolor effect. (It looks really nice with floral images!)


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to try something new!
