25 Tags of Christmas ~ Gingerbread!




I want to thank Tracey for inviting A Jillian Vance Design to participate in the 25 Days of Christmas Tags! This is our second year and it is so much fun!
For my tag I went for an un-traditional shape!


This was so fun making a shaped tag using the AJVD Cozy Cottege Bird House and Sweet Gingerbread Add On Die Sets! That Tree just needed to be 3D using 3 die cuts scored down the middle and glued it all together and added some "frosting" using the WOW! Embossing Poweder in Diamond White. I also used Diamond White on the base of the house and on the roof line to add a little sparkle!


For the back I used Sweet Treats Stamp Set which is perfect for those food gifts and year round giving as well!

For the Pine I used the WOW! Embossing Powder in Olive and the Pine Cone I used Perssia then layered with Earth tone Pepper to gave it more texture (hard to tell by the photo).

Soft Pink Poinsettia

Happy Monday!
Today I decided to do a card using a blush pink Poinsettia.
Jillian and I had a great card class at Christy's Main Street Memories in New Concord, Ohio and one of the cards Jillian designed had a pink poinsettia so I decided I needed a soft non-traditional Christmas card for today!


The Poinsettia has stitching lines which if folded on those, you can create dimension for your flower! Easy peasy to layer with all sizes included in the set and put together with Just Glue it!
I used the cozy Knit Stitch cover plate in White for a soft look as to not over power the flower. Sentiment is from Christmas Blessings stamped in It's A Girl Catherine Pooler Ink!
An easy card that could be mass produced for your Christmas card list this year!


Be sure and join us on Friday for the Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Shelly 
AND our Mini "Coffee Talk" Release!

Now on to my card!  I was so excited to add a little BLING to my card, I pretty much embossed everything but Santa and Mrs. Claus' faces!
That Vintage Frame is perfect covered in Verdigris! It gave it that Vintage Antique look! The Rich Gold Metallic I used for the Quilting Stitches Background just made them pop in the background without overpowering the favorite couple!

For Santa, using Santa & Friends Die Set, I used the White Puff Twinkle for his beard, then White Puff Twinkle and layered Diamond White on top for his hat fur and fur ball. Red Glitz is the perfect red for his hat! On Mrs Claus' hair I used only Diamond White, her holly sprig is done in Spring Breeze and Red Glitz for her holly berry and red lips! (got to have those red Christmas lips!!!)

What a fun card that really shines and sparkles for Christmas! Please enjoy my video below showing how I glammed up each die cut!

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month...Have Hope!

Happy Monday! 
Bunny here sharing a card for those strong survivors out there!
We all know them, they are friends, family, coworkers, people we are in contact with every day.
They are strong warriors fighting a horrible illness.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I wanted to share a card to make sure you 
get your mammograms each year and self check every month!
HERE is an informative link from the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


On to my card, Jillian designed this die last year. It can be used in all colors for all cancers any time of the year.

I added the center heart heat embossed with WOW Embossing Powder in Cupid...it is way more gorgeous in person than any photo I could get!


We are thrilled and honored that next Monday, October 21st, we will be having a Collaboration Blog Hop with the WOW Embossing Design Team!  Be sure and check it out then!
