He Is Not Here... He Is Risen!

Hello everyone... Helen is here today. Easter is getting closer... I have an Easter themed card to share with you. It is very easy to create it :)

First, I created the green watercolored background by adding green watercolor paint on a piece of watercolor paper using waterbrush. I dried the paint between layers to get some texture.

I cut out a heavyweight white cardstock using the Flower Burst Cover Plate. I added the watercolored panel right under the die cut panel, then trimmed the extra edges. I added this panel on the front white card with dries-clear adhesive glue.

Next I stamped one of the sentiments from the Simply Said: He Is Risen Stamp Set on a white cardstock with green ink pad using stamping tool. And then I trimmed it into a banner. I added some mini staplers on top of it and added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

Card is done :) Pretty simple and quick. I hope you enjoy this post today. Have a fabulous day, crafty friends!

White Rose With Sympathy

AJVD, Kecia Waters, rose, white embossing, sympathy
Sympathy cards are difficult for many reasons.  Kecia Waters here today on the blog, sharing a quick, but elegant design for a sympathy card.

On a gray cardstock base, I stamped the rose and sentiment from the AJVD stamp set "Beautiful Rose" with Versamark Watermark ink.  I applied white embossing powder and heat embossed.  I placed onto a white cardbase.  I adhered a red heart as a finishing touch.

Thanks so much for visiting the AJVD blog today.  Here's wishing you a very pleasant week ahead.

Monday smiles,

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Hello, Lisa Hoel here to wish you a happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope you are wearing some green. ;-) Today is my Mom's birthday too so I usually make her an appropriately themed card each year.

I started with making a background of Distress Oxide Inks - Cracked Pistachio, Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron. I die cut it with the Flower Burst Cover Plate to layer over the white card base. Before I glued it onto the base however, I used some of the new Distress Resist Spray to very lightly spritz the die cut. The resist spray leaves a raised splatter that you can then sprinkle with embossing powder and heat set (I used gold). It gives it a nice texture and a bit of bling. I wrapped gold thread around the front of the card and attached a clover charm with a Pear Pin.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Easter Eggs

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

Today, I'm swinging in to share a fun Easter card with you!

I started with making my shaker. First, I chose some patterned paper and used it with the peep/bunny die as well as the stitched dot backdrop die. After I added my clear acetate and foam tape on the back. Then added it to my card base and for the filler I used some fun colorful balls.

Once having my shaker done, I added some fun Easter eggs and a banner with my sentiment on it. To finish everything off, I added a touch of twine. Simple and fun, yeah?!...

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Happy Easter

Ardyth here with a fun Easter card where I created my own pastel background with some simple repeat stamping. I tilted my panel a bit on my grid work mat to help me keep the lines fairly straight.

I cut the big bunny from some dark brown cardstock and gave him a white enamel dot as an eye. 

To make sure his bow matched the background, I used one of the inks and smooshed it over my die cut. Once it was dry, I added some shading with a Copic marker to give it some dimension.

Here's a quick video:

hello... beautiful

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Have you seen all the new Grande Greetings dies that are available in the AJVD store?  If you haven't checked them out yet you really should.  They are fabulous!  My card today uses the Grande Greetings Hello word die along with the lovely Beautiful Rose stamp set.

I had recently made a card using some pretty coral cardstock and had a piece still out so that was my starting point for my card.  I die cut the hello from that cardstock, twice more from white cardstock and then adhered the three together.  I decided to do some coloring on kraft cardstock using one of the rose images from Beautiful Rose.  I stamped the flower on the kraft cardstock using a light colored ink and then colored in the flower using my Prisma Color pencils.  When I was done I outlined the flower using a white Prisma pencil and die cut it with the large Stitched Dot Rectangle die.  The hello was then adhered over the top of the rose.  I stamped the word beautiful (also from the Beautiful Rose set) with watermark ink and heat embossed it in white.  I then trimmed it out and adhered it to my card using rolled up glue dots.  The completed panel was then adhered to a white cardstock base.

There Is No Bunny Quite Like You

Hello everyone... Helen is here. Today, I have a Spring themed card to share with you all :)

I created the watercolored background panel with Catherine Pooler Inks... Yes... AJVD store now carries CP ink pads! How awesome is that? First, I smoosh the inks on the craft mat and sprayed with mixture of water and Perfect Pearl powder. Then I dipped a piece of watercolor paper.

After the watercolored background dried (I used craft heater to speed up the drying), I die cut the panel with Flower Burst Cover Plate Die. With the help of Press 'n Seal plastic, the pieces stays in place. I added fun foam on the back of the panel with dries-clear adhesive glue, then I added it on the card base with the same glue. Fun Foam is my alternative craft supply to give extra dimension, beside 3D foam tape.

Next step, I die cut the pieces from Bunny Love Die set and added them on the card. I stamped the bunny eye and mouth that comes in the coordinating stamp, Bunny Hugs stamp set. I stamped one of the sentiments from the same stamp set with CP Black Jack ink pad, fussy cut it, and added it on the card with 3D foam tape.

I embellished the card with some of the carrots and Snowcap White Opaque sequins.

I hope you all enjoy this card! Thank you for stopping by!
