Glossy 3D Poinsettia Christmas Card with Video Tutorial

Wow, where has this summer gone?  We are less than a month away from school starting again.
But right now it is Christmas in July over at the A Jillian Vance Design blog!


The new Leaves & Petals set from A Jillian Vance Design has so many options!
Check out my post and  How To Video HERE!
(will be linked as soon as it loads!)
I using the three smooth edged leaves, I cut 5 each in Red cardstock.
I then cut three berries from the  Holly & Swirls Die Set for the center.in yellow cardstock.
I used a Circle Backdrop for my base to glue the leaves to.  I arranged and layered to achieve the look of a poinsettia!   I added Glossy Accents to the entire flower as shown in the photo below.

Glossy Accents over entire flower.

I also used  3D Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to "pop" up the poinsettia as shown in the photo below.
Side view to see it POP!

Ghostly Greetings!

Well the A Jillian Vance Design Quilt Dies can be used for ANY occasion!
I am playing along with the Wonderful Words Challenge at Moxie Fab Blog {found HERE!}AGAIN!



I did this 8 x 8 layout for a display at one of Jillian's shows.
The Ghosts are actually the Owl Duo Die turned upside down and googly eyes added! Easy Peasy!
The Quilt dies that were released in January 2014, are so versatile, use them as a center piece on a card or layout, change up the colors for Holidays or any occasion, use plain or printed card stock for totally different looks!
There are 5 Quilt Block die in all!  All are dual purpose which means they have stitching on the OUTSIDE of the cutting line as well, so it leaves that stitching on the negative cut of the paper so it can also be used in your projects!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Halloween is approaching FAST!

Happy Holly Days!

Welcome to Christmas in July over at A Jillian Vance Design!
The New Holly & Swirls Die Set is such a fun and versatile die!
I love putting holly leaf "corners" on everything!
I saw the Wonderful Words Challenge at Moxie Fab Blog {found HERE!} and decided to play along!


The A Jillian Vance Design Happy Die Set is perfect for this as well as Happy {ALL} Holidays Stamp Set having the Holly Days sentiment ~ happy accident!!
I decided to make mine a shaker card and add some sparkle to it!

You can see from the side view the craft foam that I cut out with the die as well as the red and green glitter in the shaker!

Since the 3mm craft foam and the layers were higher I stacked two Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to bring the holly to that height.
