Happy Saturday! So at the show last week I looked at the Sentiment Strips and said HEY....SHIPLAP!!!
So Jillian and I collaborated on a Fall Shiplap card and video!
I created an adorable fall card with a really unique technique with the Sentiment Strip die set!  I created a shiplap pattern.

Check out the post and video HERE!

Three Seasons Cardinal


Thank you for joining me today! Catch me over on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog today!

I was so excited when we got our new Cardinal Die, first I love Red Birds and see many which reminds me that my dad is watching over us! Second...I actually designed and drew this die!  (Jillian lets me do that at times!) I am not an artist by any means but have learned over the years to merge shapes to create what I want to create in Illustrator and it is like a fun game for me!
So after making several Christmas cards, I thought, THIS bird doesn't have to be RED!
So here he is dressed up as a Blue Jay for Spring.

Key to My Heart!

Who holds the Key to YOUR heart?


This is a fun card using several of A Jillian Vance Design's new goodies added to the Love Collection...not just for Valentines Day!
The new Key to My Heart Die Set can be used with our Stitched Dot Heart Die Set 
or our Faceted Heart Die Set or any heart die in your stash!
Add the 
Scattered Hearts Die  which is brand new because the Scattered Stars Strip Die was such a HIT, Jillian did a Scattered Hearts Die  and Scattered Circle Strip Die too!

Vintage Floral Flourish INKboss INKpression Plate (the design on the silver heart locket) 
Check out the amazing Videos that Ardyth (HERE) and Jillian (HERE) did showing how to use the INKboss INKpression plates! I will also embed at the bottom of this post for you to watch.  Layered them all on our go to backdrop dies...the Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Die Set   and  the       
Basic Rectangle Backdrop Die Set.

HEre is another card using the Key to My Heart Die Set  and the Stitched Dot Heart Die Setbut for this one, I used the
LOVEly Hearts  INKboss INKpression Plate  which is the background for the card! I used Candied Apple Distress Oxide Ink for that!
Minnie Pearl Tag Die Set holds the sentiment and I popped out the KEY from the die set to accentuate that.  Again my go to backdrops are Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop Die Set                         and Basic Rectangle Backdrop Die Set also added a Black Pear Pins to hold the ribbon.
