25 Days of Christmas Tags ~ A Jillian Vance Design

Welcome to the
I want to thank Tracey for inviting A Jillian Vance Design again this year. Always fun to create Christmas tags!
Please visit  Tracey's Blog for all the inspiration from so many companies!

A Jillian Vance Design is proud to be a sponsor again this year!

For my tag I used several A Jillian Vance Design sets.

I wanted to honor the teachers, who during this virus crisis has really put in the hours of long work and preparation for their students. Jillian, thankfully is done with school and college, but we loved her teachers she has had through the years!

I created the Tag using the Stitch Doe In and Out Circle Backdrop Die Set, this set adds a stitch dot accent on BOTH sides of the cutting line so you can use your negative cut in your creations as well!
then added the every popular Rudy from Rudy and Friends! The Lights on his antlers is from the new Sam E. Snowman set, I added some Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter to them so she just SHINE in the night! Same for Rudy's nose, the True Red Silk Microfine Glitter is just so vibrant!
Got my 
ornament cap, I used the Elf Hat from Santa and Friends and then the one sentiment die cut from Stitched Sentiment Quartet Die Set. Then for the Banner, it is from Vintage Frame Backdrop Die Set ~ fit perfectly on the bottom of my Stitched Dot In and Out Circle Backdrop.

Ghoul Friends!

Hootie as a Ghost??? Well we were vendors at an IN PERSON Stamp and Scrapbook Show last week in Sevierville Tennessee and someone asked if we had a ghost.  I explained how I took one of the Oval dies, then used our Elegant Edges to create a "ghost bottom". So when I came home, I thought Hmmm. what can make a ghost besides an I thought Hootie then use the Elegant Edges like I did on the oval. 
While cutting it out, I dropped Hootie and he landed upside down...BAM a GHOST!!!
How cute is THIS!

So just turn Hootie upside down and make some cards for your Ghoul Friends!!!
Those little bows are from the Sweet Gingerbread Die Set and the sentiment from Happy Halloween Stamp set!
If you need your sentiment strips to be shorter than the dies included in the Slimline Essentials, just stamp your sentiment, then place the die on the strip where you want to cut it off, then "lock" in the stitching accent and die cut again, and you have a shorter strip but still keep the stitching accent all the way around! Easy Peasy!

Pine and Lights!

This is a fun card featuring the Christmas Lights Die Set is kind of a throw back Thursday card because these dies have been a staple in the AJVD line since 2015! That is 5 YEARS! Time flies, just like I can't get over it is October today!
This year, although strange as flown by as well. We hvae enjoyed being home but SURE miss shows and seeing Jillian's beloved customers!

So for my lights I used Elizabeth Crafts Silk Microfine Glitter in True Red. If you haven't tried this, you NEED too!
I use their Roll Adhesive on the front of my card stock, die cut, then add the glitter and rub for a gorgeous finish! Their colors are just so yummy! Els has many videos showing this on her YouTube Channel.

Add some Fresh Cut Pine Branches ~ Love these classic dies from 2017 they work with so many other dies we have! Add that 3D Mini Bow...another throwback from 2016 that is reduced size of the original 3D Bow Jillian did in 2012!!!
 AND then featuring her NEW Holiday Scripty Greetings! These dies are just so fun! They have a fine scripty layer and also a larger shadow layer, use them how you wish! I love the delicate look without the layer.
All on an elegant Slimline Stitched Plaid Cover Plate layered on the largest Slimline Essentials Backdrop!
Easy peasy, yet elegant and can be mass produced easily!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy National Coffee Day!

This was a fun card! The Slimline Essentials Backdrop Die Set makes a great base for the Slimline card. Layer the Slimline Stitched Plaid Cover Plate under the Slimline Peace, Love & Rainbows Slimline Circle Window Cover Plate so that plaid peeks through! Add Mr. Hootie and Ms. Hootie with their coffee cups which is included in the Hootie the Owl Die Set. The sentiment is from OWL Ocassions Stamp Set!

Slimline Snowman!

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!
