Christmas Gift Tags

Hello Crafters! It's Valerie here today, AND it's officially the beginning of the Holiday Season! And for that I have 3 Holiday gift tags!

I'm using these goodies today: Winter Woodland stamp set, Shine Bright stamp set, and Minnie Pearl Tag die set.

All the papers come from the new Echo Park 6x6 The Story of Christmas paper collection (it's gorgeous!). And the ribbon is Crinkle Ribbon from 3 Girl Jam.

I stamped the animal images and the sentiments with VersaMark, and used Zing! Gold Glitter embossing powder on the animals, and Zing! Chestnut Opaque embossing powder on the sentiments.

For the 2 reindeer, I added Xmas Red Stickles to their noses, and Gunmetal Stickles to the bear's nose. On the backs of the tags, the To & From are stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, and the bird is stamped with Memento Lady Bug ink.

tis the season...

Happy Wednesday A Jillian Vance Design fans!!  Rosemary here with a fun little snowman shaker card that you can make using the Sam E. Snowman shaker die set, Slippery Slopes & Stitched Clouds dies, and the Big Christmas Greetings Stamp set.

Last spring, shortly after I joined the A Jillian Vance Design team, my sweet friend Lisa (who was on the AJVD design team at the time) sent me all the little pieces to create Sam E. Snowman.  All these many months he has been patiently waiting for me to put him together into a proper snowman and finally that day has come.  After assembling the shaker portion of Sam and filling the area with white, gunmetal and blue A Jillian Vance Design sequins I adhered the clear acetate piece to the top portion.  Finally I added all the fun snowman details like his jaunty hat and scarf, carrot nose and "coal" mouth.  Lisa was even included some teeny tiny "googly eyes".  A little snowflake/star embellishment was added to his hat.  I die cut my snow with the Slippery Slopes dies and adhered them to a piece of patterned paper die cut with my workhorse AJVD Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies.  Sam was added along with the sentiment and I was done.

Hey y'all! Shelly, here!
Today I have a mini Christmas card to share with y'all!

I went nice and simple for my card. I did some coloring, added some sequins and twine and that's it! 

I used the 'Wreath' combo stamp and die set. I stamped my wreath half way on my card, then colored it. After, I added my sentiment and then some different color and sizes of sequins. I was going to leave my card with just the stamped wreath and sequins, but then decided to add some twine as well. Easy peasy, right?!...

White cardstock

Black ink
White twine

Happy Day A Jillian Vance Design friends..
Annette Allen here with you today.
Today I am playing with:
 Love is in the air. LOL
Sorry I just had to say it.
The Stacked Love Shaker Die is BRAND NEW and oh how I am loving it. You can make it a shaker or just leave it open. Either way it is just a fun die. I filled mine with the fake snow. You can find the fake snow in most craft stores. I watercolored the paper first then die cut. I also love how the stitched hearts from Home Sweet Home stamp set went so well with this fun die. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Shopping.
