Watercolor butterflies

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

Today, I'm sharing a simple and fun card with you.

I started with making my background. I used some watercolor paper and did a little heat embossing with the butterflies. After, I simply did some watercoloring and then added a few 'splatters' of paint here and there. Nice and easy, right?!...

To finish things off, I used the 'hello' die with white cardstock and layered it three times. Then adhered it to my card panel. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

Beautiful Rose: The Pittman's Fundraiser

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. Today, I have a really important and special post! A Jillian Vance Design is happy to be a part of a fundraiser for Larissa Collins Pittman. She's a beloved member of the crafting community, who is facing health issues and is in need of funds. Read more about her story on the GoFundMe page her daughter has set up. Polka Dot Orchard has teamed up with a number of incredible brands and compiled two digital floral stamp sets! All proceeds for these sets will be donated to the Pittman family, so picked them up if you can. All information can be found in this post. I have contributed my Beautiful Rose images (which are retired and only available on these sets!) Enjoy these digital sets and give back to someone truly special to the community!

Here are the set options (I'm only including the preview images that include my images, but there's some amazing stuff available on these sets that aren't pictured here.

Set One

Set Two

Today I have a card using the Beautiful Rose stamp, which I embossed and watercolored.

you are my anchor...

Hello everyone!  Rosemary here with a nautical themed shaker card today.  I used the two dies from the Anchors Aweigh die set as well as a sentiment from the You Are My Anchor stamp set.

I started my card by coloring a piece of watercolor paper with two shades of blue ZIG clean color real brush makers and clean water.  Once the piece was dry I die cut it with the largest Stitched Dot rectangle die and then with the anchor die.  I stamped the sentiment down in the corner using Catherine Pooler ink in Suede Shoes.  Once that was done I adhered a piece of acetate behind the anchor opening and then added the foam tape around the shape.  I used Snow Cap white and Royal Blue AJVD sequins for the shaker mix and then adhered a piece of white cardstock to the back of the panel.  The sequins are in the sale category so grab them at a great price while you can! The shaker panel was adhered to a light gray cardstock card base.  I finished by adding the little chain that I die cut from silver cardstock.  Adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to create your own background.

A Happy Hello

Hi there it's Tracey and I am finally back on he blog creating for Jillian Vance Design once again. This week I have a very sweet, quick an easy card for you using just the Polka Dot Circle Backdrop die and the Delightful Sentiments stamp set! I cut the second largest circle with some Bristol Smooth cardstock and then I used blending brushes to lightly sponge some Tumble Glass and Broken China Distress Ink onto the edge of the circle. The sentiment was stamped on to the circle and mama bumblebee and three baby bees were Copic coloured and added to the circle!

Thanks for stopping in today!

Merry Monday ~ O Christmas Tree!

Hello, Bunny here for Merry Monday for Christmas in July!
So today I have a simple card that could be mass produced if needed!

I had some printed paper I found in our stash and decided to use that as my background!
I inked up the INKboss plate included in O Christmas Tree INKboss and Die Set with the Catherine Pooler Eucalyptus Ink.  Then ran it through my die cutting machine to "letterpress" the image onto my paper. Here is a video to show you the process of our INKboss plates:

Then thought it needed some sweet red birds which is included in the O Christmas Tree INKboss and Die Set, stamped the Sentiment Strip with a sentiment from Christmas Blessings in Midnight Cather Pooler Ink and glued it all together with the AVJD Just Glue It liquid adhesive!
See easy peasy ready to mass produce for the upcoming holiday season!

Have a great week!

A sweet hello

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

Today, I'm sharing a sweet 'hello' card with you.

I started with doing some no-line watercoloring. I simply stamped my images on using a light ink color (which after making my card, I realized I probably should have stamped it once on a piece of scrap paper and then again on my watercolor paper. Just so the ink is very light. Lesson learned. :)) Once having things stamped, I then used watercolors to fill everything in.

After having things watercolored and dried, I used the largest Stitched Dot Rectangle die and the second largest heart die with my panel. Which with the heart die, I also used it twice with regular cardstock so I could layer it all together. To finish things off, I added kraft cardstock to my base card and then stamped on my sentiment in the middle of the heart. Lastly, I added it to my card. Simple, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
