Believe in Miracles!

Hello and Happy Good Friday!

So I thought a butterfly card was pretty appropriate for today!
They give us hope and show us the miracle of transformation!
I love this delicate, yet bold butterfly which compliments the Bold Butterfly Stamp Set
It was altered to become a die! And this is the set I used for the sentiment which is stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger on a Sentiment Strip
I saw it with flowers from the Mini Spring Mix of course!!! I still love those little flowers and that set!

Spring and Summer Coffee Hop!

Happy Tuesday and Welcome to another card I will be using for the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Hop
A Jillian Vance Design is thrilled to be a Super Sponsor yet again!

You know me, I love a quick card AND love the Kraft and Black color scheme! 
This one we put together on our Tuesday Night Live last week knowing I would post it for this week!
So easy peasy again, using the Hero Arts MISTI and some Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger!

This stamp set is an oldie but a goodie! Coffee & Jesus has been a best seller. I love that scripture and isn't that the truth during this whole pandemic, Casing all your care upon him!
Another favorite of mine, Mini Spring Mix! Those little flowers are so cute and go with EVERYTHING!!! and that little black cute!

Here is the video from last Tuesday night.
I did redo this card from the one in the video using a new ink pad, then other one was tired and over used!

2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Hop

Happy Friday and Welcome to the 2021 Spring/Summer Coffee Hop
A Jillian Vance Design is thrilled to be a Super Sponsor yet again!

Today I have created a Spring Coffee card that I just love! Floral cards seem to be my favorite to create. It is kind of like floral arranging!

I started with the Slimline Essentials Backdrop Die Set as my base, and created a Mini Slim by placing the edge of the die at the 6 inch mark and cutting again. I did a video on the AJVD YouTube Channel HERE showing how to do this.

For this one I used the Cozy Cup Die Set ~ one of my favorite dies of Jillian's and added some Mini Spring Mix flowers and Fresh Foliage!
I stamped the Vintage Floral Flourish with Catherine Pooler Ink in Sweet Sixteen
using the Elegant Edges curved die, I cut a piece of cardstock to create a "mask" to look like a table cloth.

Check out all the other Super Sponsors and participants and also join in the fun! 
Check the blog next week for more coffee inspiration!
Thanks for joining me today!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Hello, Bunny here and I am back with two cards, with different background color schemes...sometimes it is fun to see which one you like best! I am mixed on these however, each has their unique look.
I layered tone on tone for the Slimline Essentials and Slimline Checkerboard Cover Plate, I love that look!
Then used the light pink for the poinsettias which made them POP off the card!
Using the Petal Pusher and Shape up Mat helps them to pop as well.
I attached the Holiday Scripty Greetings sentiments just touching the tops of the poinsettias, you don't always have to have a sentiment laying flat! I attached them with the Just Glue It in a couple of spots on the poinsettia petals.
I was going to use the Fresh Cut Pine, but decided on the Budding Branches and added some Ranger Stickles to them! Perfect little touch of glitter!
This is an elegant card that actually didn't take long to create both of them!

With the black it is harder to see the Slimline Checkerboard Cover Plate in the photo.
But it certainly is stunning in person!

Budding Branches with a bit of Stickles

So the white background is very elegant too! The touches of gold and the stickles on the Budding Branches coordinate.

These Budding Branches give a delicate touch where as the ones on the black background are a little more bold!

From our Nest...and a Spring Card too!

Happy Thursday!
Jillian's' virtual events are over for the year, but I was thinking so what did we use, that MANY people already have and how can I show them a new idea with those products!
So I came up with this darling Winter Birdie (aka Spring Birdie) Slimline Card!
We had SO MUCH fun this year doing the Virtual Events in two Groups.
Most of the die cuts on this card, are from items that came in the bundles!
So grab your supplies and make one for yourself!  Don't forget to check out the Spring one further on down the post!

I wanted to add a little bling to the snow drifts and the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse roof and bottom trim so I used Elizabeth Crafts adhesive and their wonderful Silk Fine Glitter in Cool Diamond I also used their True Red Silk Fine Glitter for the bow!
The snow drifts and roof trim on the birdhouse is from the Sweet Gingerbread Add On that coordinates with the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse.
The Bow, Poinsettia and Pine are all from the Classic Candle Die Set and I used the Petal Pusher and Shape Up Mat Combo to shape the poinsettia.
Spring Birdie in Red makes a great red cardinal for Winter and the Sentiment Strips in the Slimline Essentials are perfect for the sentiments from the New Nest Stamp Set
I also used a Sentiment Strip for the post and embossed it using our INKBoss INKpression Plate. 
Topped it off with Snowflakes from A Cool Friend Coordinating Die Set.
I think it makes a darling winter slimline card with items that most of our Virtual Event people already own!

A Jillian Vance Design products used: for the Spring one!
This one I was inspired by one that a Lawn Fawn designer did.
Jillian has always said, if I didn't have a company, Lawn Fawn would fill the craft room!
This is another variation of the winter card, only using the Mini Spring Mix Die Set that is BRAND NEW!!!

The Clouds are from the Peace, Love & Rainbows Slimline Circle Window Cover Plate and are covered in Elizabeth Crafts Silk Glitter in Cool Diamond.
The grass tufts are from the Hootie the Owl Spring Add On Set, it is adorable and makes Hootie into a Bunny or a Flower!
The Lady Bug is in the Mini Spring Mix Die Set as well.
I also used a Sentiment Strip for the post and embossed it using our INKBoss INKpression Plate for this one too!
How fun would a FALL one be with a Black Bird!!!

Introducing the Mini Spring Mix!

Happy Thursday! 
Do you ever just wake up with a card idea in your head? That was me this week!
And for came out like I wanted!

I am in LOVE this with the new Mini Spring Mix Die Set! And when you use the Petal Pusher & Shape Up Mat can pop those little flowers right out!
Jillian designed it to be used with the Minnie Pearl Bookmark Die, and sized it accordingly. is the perfect compliment to her Slimline Window Die Sets. 
Here I used the Slimline Heart Windows and Words Die Set and layered it on the Slimline Stitched Plaid Cover Plate which was then layered on the largest die from the Slimline Essentials Die Set.
All in the SAME color of pink cardstock!
I love the miniature flowers and foliage in this set, she also included a butterfly and lady bug! And also has fall and winter leaves and flowers.
They are grouped together in several plates so you aren't dealing with little dies all separate.
The word die "love" comes with the  Slimline Heart Windows and Words Die Set along with "faith" and hope"
This would be a great Valentine card, wedding or anniversary card!
The foliage is pretty bendable and once you glue it, it works great around shapes!
I can't wait to try more with the other window Slimline sets!
