Sam E Snowman Loves You!

Welcome back!  I've got the adorable Sam E Snowman here today telling you he loves you!

That fun Mini Hearts Cover Plate was perfect for the background and then a big stitched heart behind Sam using the same paper I placed behind the heart backdrop.  I dressed him up in some matching plaids and instead of adding the holly to his hat, I added a little heart. I save the hearts that are cut from that heart backdrop and they come in handy for things like Sam's hat decoration and instead of buttons on his belly.  I just colored them in red with a Copic marker.

I used the basket die from the Hootie Spring Add On Set and stuffed it with hearts.  Finally I fussy cut a sentiment from the Valentine's Day stamp set and popped it up.

That's me for today!  Hope you'll come again soon for more A Jillian Vance Design Inspiration!

Sending Love

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I hope you're having a fantastic day. Today I have a fun little card for Valentine's Day (hope you're not tired of those yet, there's more where that came from!) 

Today's card is inspired by envelopes... anyone send a love letter or two before?

I decided to emboss a Stitch Dot Heart (the 2nd smallest size) with Fool's Gold Embossing Powder from WOW! I then cut a Basic Backdrop in white and placed the Elegant Edges die that looks like an obtuse angle (any math experts out there?) Where I wanted it, making sure it was even. I then cut that. Using a ruler, I used one of Wow's embossing pens and drew a line along the edge of the envelope on one side before embossing it with Fool's Gold and then doing the same on the other side. I took the Sending Happy Mail stamp set and stamped Sending and Love (they're two different stamps, I just lined them up using the MISTI), on another Basic Backdrop that I cut. 

Then added a black base layer... and here it is! I think this card is so cute and so much fun. I hope you do too! I'll see you all next week, have a wonderful weekend!

You Stole My Heart

Hey, everyone!

I hope you're having a wonderful Thursday! Today I'm sharing with you my project from this week's Tuesday Night Live! The video is below, so you can watch us! We played a lot with Wow Embossing Powders, which I absolutely adore and are so, so much fun to play with! They have so many different varieties and formulas and they're always so much fun to explore! Take a look at their site and buy some powders if you're in the market. 

On the live, we played around with the Queen of Hearts powder, which is comprised of some larger chunks of black,  pearly white, red, gold, and silver. When it melts it gives this really cool effect; not quite a marble effect but something very cool! They way the colors meld together just absolutely gives a gorgeous look! I used this powder on my Celebrate card last week as well. 

I also cut 4 Stitch Dot Hearts (The 3rd smallest size) and embossed them with Metallic Silver (I used an embossing ink pad as well as a rollerball to make sure I got them on perfectly!

I stamped the XOXO from the Big Love stamp set and embossed with Queen of Hearts on both white (kind of, I messed up a bit, haha!) and black. Totally different looks! 

I also stamped an XOXO on a white piece of paper and embossed it with Old Glory, which is a similar formula with red and white and some blue glitters. I really love this chunky formula, it's super stunning and the effect it creates is great!

Red Velvet Valentine

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
Today I have an elegant but pretty simple card ~ you know me, easy peasy is my favorite way to make cards.

For this card, I grabbed my Vintage Floral Flourish Background Stamp, some Wow Embossing Ink and Wow Red Glitz embossing powder and created these lovely backgrounds for the Slimline Heart Window Cover Plate. It gives me Red Velvet vibes!
Using the Love from the same set, and a couple sentiments from Happy Hearts Stamp set.  I added the red Slimline Essentials Backdrop in Red and there you have a beautiful card!
The Sentiment banners are also from the Slimline Essentials Backdrop Die Set, they were perfect for this scriptures.

Thank you for visiting today! Enjoy the rest of your week!

Forever & Always Basket of Hearts

Happy Monday!  I've been working on some Valentines lately and decided a basket of hearts would be just the ticket!

This Bountiful Basket is one of my very favorite die sets from the shop!  With two different inserts to change the look of your basket it's lots of fun!  And you can fill it with all kinds of things.  I filled it with hearts from the Stitched Dot Heart Backdrop set and from the Heart Window Slimline and some flowers from the Mini Spring Mix set.  A few fell out of the basket because it's so full.

Finally a sweet sentiment from the Valentine's Day Stamp set and a few sequins.  I used one of the strips from the So Many Stitched Sentiment Strips Die Set... love to just cut an extra when there is extra room on my cutting plate to have them on hand!

Thanks so much for stopping!  Hope you'll come again soon!
