Red HOT!


So today I wanted to do an elegant, but simple card and here it is! I love the tone on tone of the red! All the same red cardstock and Metallic Rich Gold WOW! Embossing powder!
What a red hot statement this card makes!
Easy peasy yet again!
The Heart was stamped from Happy Hearts Stamp Set as well as the sentiment using WOW! Embossing Ink, then the WOW! Metallic Rich Gold Embossing Powder!
Those powders just leave a beautiful finish!
Hope you have blessed week and Happy Valentine's Day!

Time for an Easter Card!


Hello, Bunny again and today I decided to do an Easter card!   Using the Weathered Wood Background Builder stamp and It's A Girl Catherine Pooler Ink, I stamped the cross from the Divine Cross Create A Card die.  Then cut the elegant Quatrefoil Cover plate and created a white on white background.  I had had that pretty little pink centered daffodil from my video so I used the swirly vine from the Spring Birdie Die Set and added that blossom.
Stamped the sentiment in Spruce Catherine Pooler ink, it is from the Divine Easter Stamp Set!
Easy Peasy yet elegant!

Spring Birdie Grad!


Hello, Bunny here! Jillian is busy cutting the cards for our April show class, so I will be on the blog for a couple of her days!
IF you are in Ohio and would like more info...please check out Adventures in Stamping, it is a great show! http://adventuresinstamping.com/

So what did you think of that awesome release? So many cute and classic designs to use!

So I just love this cute little Spring Birdie! For this card, I put him on the branch that is included in the set...that way if you don't have the Cozy Cottage Birdhouse the die set can still be used as a stand alone set! That little berry branch is included as well, I cut it in red then used watercolor marker to color the rest brown.
It is hard to see in the photo but I used the Woodgrain INKboss Plate to give the background some texture! I used my MISTI stamping tool so if I needed to really press that sentiment in, I could stamp multiple times...but one time is all it needed for a great impression!

Hello, Bunny here and today I am showcasing the Daffodil Duo Die Set!
Here is the video Jillian and I did showing how we create a 3D Daffodil, but the possibilities are endless using the petals and center...let us know what type of bloom you create!







So for me it is hard not to layer, layer, layer... but today I decided I was going clean and simple!
Plus with the video I wanted you guys to see how I did the Daffodil and focus on that rather than an elaborate card!
I love this new Thank You Stamp Set...has every type of Thank You you need to create a nice Thank you card! Nice bold typeface that embosses beautifully!
I used Metallic Platinum Wow! Embossing powder for my With Gratitude.

Here is my layer, layer, layer card!  I love laying different textures and shapes. Using the Rustic Wood Slice you get the rustic look of spring and the bold white on white background!

Not just for Daffodils! I also used it as a waterlily using a black Mermaid Scales Cover Plate as the background for that tropical but yet Art Deco effect. I just layered 3 of the larger petals and 3 of the smaller ones curled in to create a spiky effect. Then put in on half of a Delightful Daisy Jr mat layer to make the Lily Pad!  The Sentiment die cut is from the Stitched Sentiment Quartet Die Set.

This cute little tag was whipped up to show how the small daffodil coordinates with the Petite Pot and Vase Die Set!  This will probably be a make and take at our Spring Shows!
And those new Stitched Sentiment Quartet Dies...LOVE them!  They are just like the perfect size you are always looking for!

Red Sparkle Balloons!


Hello and Happy Tuesday, Bunny here and hoping you had a great holiday season, but it is kind of nice to get back into a normal schedule again!

So wanted to do a little throwback for this Tuesday!  It is really hard NOT to use our new goodies that are coming out Friday!


For this card I used the Quatrefoil Cover Plate, white on white, then our cute little Heart Balloon Dainty Die which I embossed with WOW! Embossing Powder in Red Glitz! It is the perfect red for Santa Hats and Heart Balloons! I embossed a chunk of paper than die cut, easier than 3 balloons blowing around with my heat gun!


I used Mirrocard in Silver for the Vase Die Cut, a little twine for my Balloon Bouquet, and a Valentine sentiment from the Happy Hearts Stamp Set stamped on the sentiment die cut from the Vintage Frame Backdrop Set.  Easy peasy, but yet elegant card.

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!
