Perfect Pumpkin - Autumn Blessings

Hello!  Welcome back!  Today I've got some Autumn Blessings for you!

I used the new Mini Hearts Cover Plate Die to start.  I cut it from white card stock and attached it to my brown base cut 4.25" x 5.5".  I saved some of the hearts that were cut out and colored them in using the markers I would use to color my pumpkins and flowers and inserted them in a random pattern diagonally across the card front.

I cut the Perfect Pumpkin and Fringe Flowers from Copic friendly paper and colored them in.  I also cut a 4 1/4" wide piece of the brown cardstock and cut it using a die from the Elegant Edges die set.  I popped it up over the top of the card and added a few more hearts.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed from the Hello Fall sentiment set and added to the card.

Finally the pumpkin and flowers were added to the card along with a few sequins.

That's me for today!  Thanks for coming and hope you enjoyed your visit!

Be sure to come back tomorrow because we've got something special going on for National Coffee Day!

Merry & Bright

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

Have you seen all the fun new goodies?!! ;) I'm swinging in to share a slimline Christmas card with you! 

Fun, yeah?!...I started with doing all the die cutting for my card, the snowmen, slimline line panels, etc. After I did some simple ink blending with the snowmen die cut pieces. Once done, I simply assembled each snowman together. Easy peasy, right?! ;) Next, I added the snowmen behind the panel die cut piece, but before adhering them to the panel I had to do a little trimming with scissors, so they'd fit. Lastly, I added everything to my base card and then topped it off with 'merry & bright'. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

You Melt my Heart!

Welcome back to the Winter Wishes Release week!

This is just like our Polka Dot Circle Backdrop, only they feature the AJVD exclusive Stitch Dot design accent on both sides of the cutting line!
So you can use both the die cut and the negative die cut in your projects, less waste that way!
I created a snowman using 2 of the circles adding the Flower Pot Die for his hat and a couple of the Sentiment Strips included in the Slimline Essentials Backdrop die set as his scarf and the base of the card!
Stamped his nose and sentiment from Snowman Sentiments, one of Jillian's new Stamp Sets to coordinate with several of her Snowman Themed dies and stamps!
The heart is from the Mini Hearts Cover Plate that was released this week as well!
The Slimline Signature Polka Dot Cover Plate just adds a whimsical touch!
Check out the new release Winter Wishes HERE!
All of the dies are on their way to us!

A Bold Snowflake and Sam!

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone!  Rosemary here and this is a happy day because A Jillian Vance Design has new product in the house!  Woot Woot!   And I have two cards to share using some of those new products!  Yep... two cards!  I was so excited about the new release I just had to make two cards!  Check out the new release:

So.much.good.stuff!  Do you see the new Signature Studio Bag?  So cool!

My first card uses the new Bold Snowflake and Holiday Scripty Greetings!  When I saw that big bold snowflake I was in love!  And the Holiday Scripty Greetings?!  Fabulous!  I kept things simple and just die cut the snowflake from some white glitter cardstock and then additional scrap paper to layer behind the glitter snowflake to give it more substance.  I then die cut some white cardstock using the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die and adhered the snowflake to the center of the panel.  The sentiment let it snow was die cut from sliver glitter cardstock and additional scrap cardstock for layering.  The shadow part of the sentiment was die cut from vellum and then I adhered the sentiment.  I love the way the sentiments were created.  All the words are linked together making it so easy to keep everything lined up!   I adhered the the sentiment to the center of the snowflake and then adhered the panel to a light gray cardstock base.  Clean, simple, but packs a big punch!

The second card features the new and improved Sam E. Snowman.  How cute is he?   You can turn Sam into a shaker element, but I decided to just go with creating a simple snowman.  I die cut all the pieces and adhered them.  I used Nuvo drops in black for his eyes instead of using the little die cut eyes.  The layout is from Sunday Stamps so I will be adding my little snowman to their gallery.  I used some neutral winter themed papers for the background so that Sam could take center stage and several different dies to cut the papers.  The sentiment I used is from Frosty Friends.  The sentiment and the other strip behind Sam were die cut using the Sentiment Strips die set.   I die cut additional Sams from scrap cardstock and layered them together to give Sam some heft.

Checkerboard Christmas!

Welcome to the Winter Wishes Release!!! 
What darling things Jillian has for us this release, it is all about winter! 
Which we are not really ready for Ohio winter just  yet, but we are having a beautiful fall!

Today I am using the Bold Snowflake I love this nice, clean bold look.

I paired it with the Checkerboard Cover Plate and used different color combos which totally changes the look!
I used Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter and I will say in person, these snowflakes are gorgeous! It is so hard to capture it in a photo! Colors used:  Warm Diamond, Cool Diamond and Blue Purple
So using the black Checkerboard gives a different effect than the Red on black, then the white on white with that Blue Purple Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter is a stunning combo!

Then add a sentiment from the Holiday Scripty Greetings Die Set in Silver Mirrocard and you have an easy but elegant card!

To A Cool Friend - Sam E Snowman Reboot!

Happy Day!  Today there is a new release over at the A Jillian Vance Design shop!  I've used the adorable new Sam E Snowman die set!  Sam is back in the shop and new and improved!  I personally did know him before, but I just love him now!

I love that he comes with a smaller circle so that you can make his belly a shaker element if you want!  I did substitute one of the hats from the Rudy & Friends die set for his top hat.  The Sam E Snowman set comes with a snowflake and I used the extra snowflakes from the A Cool Friend coordinating die set to cut more and different sizes at the same time.

And I used one of the "Cool" sentiments from the Frosty Friends sentiment set.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed it!  Be sure to check out all the new stuff this week.
