faith, hope, love...

Hey there!  Rosemary here today and yes... I have another slimline card to share!  I hadn't used the Slimline Heart Window & Words cover plate dies yet so I just had to for this week's card!  I think we can all use a little faith, hope and love right?!

I had another rummage through my collection of 12x12 papers and found these lovely papers from Stampin Up!  I didn't have many of them left... in fact I think only one or two so I decided to use them for my card.  One side had a lovely pattern with roses so I cut a piece that I could arrange the window die on so that the hearts would each die cut a rose (or part of one).  I then die cut the heart window die from the reverse side that has the green pattern on it.   I adhered the heart window panel that had the roses on it to the back of the green patterned piece to give it a little more heft.  The same thing was done with the hearts.  I then used the Slimline Essentials set (the largest die) to cut the red cardstock panel and adhered the heart window panel to that.  The hearts were then popped up with foam.  I die cut all the words from the same red cardstock used for the layering panel multiple times, layered each word and then adhered them to the hearts.  Super simple, but, again, I really like that.

Tis The Season

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. Today I have a fun little slimline card I created using my Santa and Friends, Rudy and Friends, and brand new Slimline die sets.

I’ve found myself absolutely addicted to slimline cards; I don’t wanna go back to making anything else!

This was incredibly simple to create; I cut Santa and Mrs. Claus along with Rudolph, and placed them in the windows of my Rectangle Window slimline. Then I stamped the ‘Tis the season to be jolly’ sentiment with some dark green ink, and voila! For a little extra, I cut a few holly leaves from the Santa and Friends set and placed them as accents on the frame of the windows.

Hope you all have a fabulous day! 

Sending Love

Welcome back!  Lisa here!  Today I'm sharing another slimline with another of the great new slimline dies along with a few other products from the shop!

I started by cutting that awesome Slimline Signature Polka Dot Cover Plate and adhering it to a 3 1/2 x 8" denim colored piece of cardstock to serve as my base.  I stamped, cut and colored the floral images from the Hug In A Mug stamp set.  My original intent was to add the sentiment directly to the base, however I also wanted to use that cute patterned paper and it all got lost on the fantastic polka dots so I cut the Minnie Pearl Bookmark from white cardstock to serve as a backdrop for the SENDING part of the sentiment that was cut using the Headline Type Alphabet dies.  I also cut the "Love" word from the Slimline Heart Window & Words die three times from white cardsstock and stacked them together.

I layered all of my pieces on my base with varying thicknesses of foam tape and scattered a few sequins around.  I also added a pre-made bow from my stash to the end of the bookmark because it felt like the right thing to!

That's me for today!  Hope you enjoyed it and you come back soon for more A Jillian Vance Design inspiration!

Hello Friend

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

Today, I'm sharing a fun slimline friendship card with you! 

I started with making my background. Which I simply used the slimline polka dot cover plate with white cardstock and then did a little ink blending with blue ink at the top of it. After, I added some silver glitter cardstock underneath it and then adhered it to my card base. Easy peasy, right?!...Next, I worked on making the rainbows. I used the rainbow die with different colored cardstock and the cloud die with white cardstock. I added one full rainbow to my card and then cut a full rainbow in half to add partial rainbows on my card. Once done, I added the clouds and then used the hello die with three different blue shades of cardstock and layered them together. Then added the 'hello' and 'friend' (from the frosty friends stamp set) stamped sentiment to my card. Simple, right?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!

a sunny hello...

Hello everyone!  Hope your week is going well.  Rosemary here and I have a sunny slimline card to share today.  Yep... another slimline, lol!  I told you I have a ton of ideas for these new dies.  I hope you have gotten yours! 

This card is pretty simple.  Just the two sunflower images from the Hug in a Mug stamp set, along with the Slimline Rectangle Window and Word Cover Plate die set.  I also used the largest die from the Slimline Essentials Backdrop die set.  I die cut the Rectangle Window die from bright yellow polka dot paper and slimline rectangle from white.  I temporarily layered the two so I could stamp the sunflowers in the right spots.  I then colored them very simply with Copic markers.  I die cut the hello from the same patterned paper twice, adhered them together and then adhered it in the remaining spot.  I added sunny yellow sequins to the center of section.  I adhered foam strips to the back of the window die cut and then carefully adhered that piece to the white rectangle to form shaker elements for each square.   The entire piece was adhered to a bright yellow cardstock base.  I used one of my favorite tools... my die cutting machine... so I'm going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.

Wings of Hope

Welcome back!  Lisa here and today I'm using two of the new slimline dies together! I layered the  Slimline Heart Window & Words Coverplate with foam tape over the Slimline Stitched Plaid Cover Die because I wanted my windows to remain white, but felt I needed a little texture underneath.

Then I stamped, cut and colored the butterflies and flowers from the Hug In A Mug set and arranged them in each window again with foam tape, but moving them around until I had the look I wanted before I adhered them.  And finally I cut the Hope word die from the heart slimline set twice from white cardstock and stacked them.  I added foam tape as well to this but then curved the word a little before adhering it because I liked the way it looked!

I finished it off with some sequins and was done!

Thanks so much for stopping today and I hope you enjoyed your visit!  Come back again soon for more A Jillian Vance Design inspiration!

Friday, July 31, 2020're so sweet!

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

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

Sweet, yeah?!...I started with making the 'shaker' for my card. I used the new circle window cover plate, placed acetate over the circles and then added foam tape around the edges. After I filled up the shaker with all sorts of fun goodies. Then added on a piece of cardstock to the back, to close things off. Pretty simple, right?!...To finish things off, I used the largest slimline rectangle die for my card base and then added my shaker on top of it. Once done, I used the pear die and did some simple ink blending with a few different inks. Then added it to my card, along with 'thanks' that I used a couple different purple cardstocks for and white cardstock underneath. Then a 'you're so sweet' sentiment on a banner. Fun, yeah?!...

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
