To a sweet friend

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

Today, I'm sharing a sweet and simple Easter gift tag with you!


I started with making the overall 'egg' tag. Which I simply used the large egg die with white cardstock and then the scalloped egg frame die with a light purple cardstock. Easy peasy, right?!...After, I simply glued the frame to the large egg. I then used the two bunny dies with a kraft cardstock and then the two bow dies with a yellow cardstock. Again, simple. ;) Once having my bunnies put together, I then added them to my tag. Which I added foam tape on the back of the smaller bunny, so it can stand out a little more from the big bunny. To finish things off, I added a touch of sequins (and a flower sequin on the ear of the small bunny), a sentiment, and a ribbon along with burlap twine. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

He is Risen...

Hello! Rosemary here and I'm back with another Easter card done up in soft colors.  I used the same patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye pad that I used last week.  I had originally started out making something completely different and then once I got it to the point of being nearly finished I didn't really like how it was turning out so I started over!  I don't often do that, but sometimes that's what happens.  My card uses the He is Risen 2.0 stamp set along with the recently released Signature Polka Dot cover plate die and a couple of tried and true AJVD dies!


The card is pretty simple, actually.  I simply found a pretty piece of patterned paper from the pad and die cut it with the largest Rectangle Backdrop die.  I then die cut the Signature Polka Dot cover plate die from white cardstock and adhered it to the patterned paper die cut with Just Glue It adhesive.  The light blue gingham piece was die cut with a medium sized Stitched Dot Rectangle die and then stamped with the lily image from the He is Risen 2.0 set in VersaMark watermark ink.  I applied white embossing powder and heat set.  That piece was adhered with foam tape to the larger panel.  I die cut some vellum with the small tag from the Minnie Pearl Tag die set, stamped the sentiment in watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set.  The tag was adhered to the gingham panel with rolled up Zots and then I added the little twine bow.  The entire piece was then adhered to a kraft cardstock base.

Sending Smiles Across The Miles


Hello all!  Lisa here and today I'm sharing with you a card using the awesome Hug In A Mug stamp set and a great new set Sending Happy Mail!

I colored up the images from the Hug In A Mug set... that butterfly again... I just love it!  It's beautiful however you color it!  And the butterfly kind of set the tone for the colors in this one. 


As we practice Social Distancing everywhere, there are tons of sweet and cool sentiments on the Sending Happy Mail set that are great for creating cards to reach out to people that we can't spend time with right now, near or far.  I chose this one because it's sweet and perfect for the recipient!

Happy Easter

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

Today, I'm swinging in to share a simple and sweet Easter card with you!


Simple, yeah?!...I started with die cutting the eggs using white cardstock, then did some simple ink blending. I did the same process with the grass, but only one time. The grass in the background I ended up stenciling on. ;) Once having all my ink blending done, I simply added things to my card base. Though, before adhering anything down, I stamped on the sentiment and then added a touch a washi tape. Sweet, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Celebrate the Glory of Easter

Hello everyone!  I hope you all are continuing to stay safe right now.   With Easter coming soon I (Rosemary) made another Easter card.  I tend to forget that I have certain things but recently I did some reorganizing of my dies and now I have certain dies in a place where I see them with regularity.  It was because of that reorganization that I was able to use one of the fun cover plate dies from A Jillian Vance Design along with the He is Risen 2.0 die set and the Stitched Sentiment Strips 2.0 die set.

I went with a very soft color scheme for this card and used some patterned papers from the beautiful Gingham Gardens 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye.  I started by pulling out a piece with a woodgrain pattern and die cut it with the largest die from the Rectangle Backdrop die set.  I then die cut the Stitched Plaid cover plate die from white cardstock and adhered that on top with Just Glue It adhesive.  I then die cut 3 laurel leaves using the Laurel Leaves die set and adhered them together with the Just Glue It adhesive.  A strip of plaid paper from the pad was trimmed and wrapped around the main panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the He is Risen 2.0 set with watermark ink on vellum that had been die cut with one of the Sentiment Strip 2.0 dies and heat embossed in white.  That strip was also wrapped around the main panel and then I adhered the laurel leaves behind it with Just Glue It adhesive.  The panel was adhered to a light aqua card base and finished with a white twine bow.  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.

A Butterfly Rainbow



Hello all!  Lisa here and today I'm sharing another Butterfly Birthday Card with you except this time we have a rainbow of butterflies!

I just love the butterfly from the Hug In A Mug set!  There are so many ways you could color it up and it would be beautiful every time!  This time, I picked... well... almost all the colors...lol!


And lately I've been loving to have a back and white background stamp when I have lots of color up front... the tricky part was making sure you could see what it was behind all of those colorful butterflies!  But I just kept pushing them around until I got the look I wanted.

Thanks for stopping!  All of the a Jillian Vance Design products I used today have links below should you decide there is something you need!  And right now there's a sale!


Have fun and come again soon!
