Welcome Guest Designer Rebecca Morefield-Wagner

A Jillian Vance Design welcomes Guest Designer Rebecca Morefield-Wagner from the Happy Card Encouragement Factory!

I am so excited to be a guest designer for A Jillian Vance Design.  I am just getting into stamps so I was excited to win two of Jillian’s stamps sets from a craft challenge.  Since then I have purchased a few more and am loving stamping (I was mostly a die cut user).  You can imagine my surprise when  Bunny asked me to make a card using their cute stamps.  I just hope I do them justice!
First off, Bunny asked me to say a little about myself, so here it is.  I am a 37 year old home schooling mom of two teenage boys - one of whom is currently a Senior.  I have been married to my best friend for almost 19 years who supports me in all that I do.  I am also one of the world's biggest nerds.  I love all gadgets and gizmos which is why I work part-time at a big box electronics store.  That love is really what started me in the world of crafting.  I enjoy working with my hands, be it kneading bread, paper piecing or building computers.  I was so stressed out building and fixing every one's computers that I needed to do something just for me.  Thus The Happy Card Encouragement Factory was born and the rest is history.
For my projects today, I decided to make a few cards.   My friend Trish started a challenge over at the Make the Cut forum.  She provided the files and we were asked to come up with something crafty.   I have the Tender Thoughts stamp set and when I saw the files, the first thing that popped in my head was a monotone background.  Something demure and simple, that really showcases the stamps.  Makes the sentiment the focal point of the card. 

My original intention was just two cards.  When I cut the honeycomb pattern out in American Crafts “Play” line paper, I loved the negative too.  So I decided to make another card.  The white card stock is Georgia Pacific in 67 lb.   The ribbons were just a pack I picked up at Hobby Lobby, can’t remember the name. 
Thank you for coming by and taking a look.  Hope you enjoyed my project for today.  Have a great day and happy crafting!
