You are my anchor...I would be lost without you

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

Today I'm sharing a simple, fun, and summery card with y'all!

I simply stamped on my anchor sentiment in a blue ink. Then after, stamped on my smaller sentiment underneath the anchor in a red ink. Easy peasy, right?!...

Once having my sentiment pieces stamped, I thought it be a fun touch to add a strip of stitching across the bottom. After, I used some woodgrain for my background and then added my stamped panel. Simple and summery, yeah?!...

Card Background with Inksheets

 Hello everyone, Lisa Hoel here with a guest post and mini tutorial for you. We are still having lovely spring weather around here and that inspires me to create flowery, pastel projects. Today I'm sharing a Celebrate card on which I used Sizzix Inksheets and AJVD dies to create the background.

Inksheets are easy to use and will work with any thin dies. The Daisy Die Set worked beautifully to make this background. There is a special platform you need to use with the Big Shot and Sizzix has a handy Starter Kit for it. On to Step 1! (easy peasy!)

Make your sandwich as follows, platform, Inksheets plate, substrate (paper), Inksheet matte side down, dies cutting side down, and finally a clear cutting pad (not shown). Run it through the Big Shot and it will press the cutting edge of the die through the Inksheet (but doesn't cut it) and the "ink" will be transferred to the paper! I repeated this a few times, moving the Inksheet and dies around until I had covered the background paper.

 The Inksheets transfer can act as a resist too. Try doing this on white watercolor paper and then adding mists or other colorants over the top. Your transferred design will resist and the white outlines will shine through!

here for you...

Hello friends!! Rosemary here on the blog today to share a card I made using lots of different A Jillian Vance Design products.  I used the AJVD stamp set Get Well Wishes, the Quilting Stitches background builder stamp, the Swirly Vine and Pop Up Petals dies.
I started by stamping the Quilting Stitches background builder stamp on some white cardstock and then die cut it using a Polka Dot Rectangle backdrop die.  All the elements for the flowers and leaves were die cut from some My Mind's Eye patterned papers.  I adhered the centers to the flowers using pop dots and then added a coating of Diamond Stickles.  I placed my panel in my mini MISTI, arranged the flowers and then placed the sentiment on the panel in the spot where I wanted it.  I removed the flower and then stamped my sentiment.  The flowers were then adhered along with pieces of the swirly vine.  Finished by adhering the panel to a green cardstock base.   Adding this to the following challenges:  Word Art Wednesday:  anything goes and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge:  anything goes.

Hooray for Today Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, graduation
I continue to make cards with AJVD's "Congrats Grad" stamp set.  Kecia Waters on the blog today, sharing another quick CAS design that will be sure to make any graduate smile.   

To make this card, all you need to to do is cut a square using any color cardstock.  Then, using the tassel die from the AJVD "Goody/Mini Bag Embellishments Mega Die Set", cut a tassel with cardstock.  I added a few streaks of white to my tassel with a Prismacolor pencil.  I attached the tassel to my mortar board with Baker's Twine and an enamel dot.

Using Versafine Onyx Black, I stamped the sentiment from "Congrats Grad"  stamp set.

AJVD Supplies:
Congrats Grad

Other Supplies:
white cardstock, colored cardstock, enamel dot, Baker's Twine, Versafine Onyx Black, white Prismacolor pencil

Stay tune for more AJVD projects right here on the blog.  We are so glad you took the time to visit today.

Beautiful Rose-Thanks

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

Today I'm sharing another card using the new Beautiful Rose stamp set. I kept things simple and one layered.

Check it out.

I stamped on my full rose and then did some coloring with markers. After, I added my sentiment and used the largest Polka Dot Rectangle die with my image. I also added a little strip of black cardstock to the one side, as well. Sweet and simple, yeah?!...

get well wishes...

Hey friends!!  Rosemary here with a card I made using the new Beautiful Rose stamp set along with the newly released Get Well Wishes stamp set.

I did some more watercoloring.  This time of the larger rose image from Beautiful Rose stamp set.  I stamped the image using VersaFine Vintage Sepia ink because it works well with watercoloring.  The rose was color with Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors.  Once the image was dry I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then die cut the panel with my Polka Dot Rectangle Backdrop dies and adhered it to a yellow card base.
