I would start with a hearty Good Morning Sunshine! but I haven’t seen the sun in a few days. That’s OK, hopefully Mother Nature is saving it up for next week’s marathon…yeah, it is next week. But who’s counting (besides me, and I’ve had the big scary date embedded in my head since January!)
Anyhoo, I have a card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today, and I’ll share it here too. Go there to see a few close-ups.
I used stamps from A Jillian Vance Design – this is not a guest post, but they sent me so many cool stamps to use, I have not had time to get to them all.
This card was inspired by the workshop I took over the weekend. I don’t take many classes, but did spend the weekend at Craft Fancy with the super awesome Wendy Vecchi! I had the chance to remember some techniques, and then to update those with new ideas and new products. Wow, so inspiring and fun!
So the watercolor paper was inked with Distress Ink and spritzed with water. The swirly tree stamp was heat embossed, and the 3D Foam Star was covered with glitter. I assembled the pieces with 3D Foam Squares. And you know I love photo corners!
Thanks for stopping by today!
The weather here took a turn and it’s suddenly feeling a lot like Christmas! I don’t mind the Christmas part, it’s the cold that I’m not so ready for! However, I could be ready, let me just get the tree up, and get some gift cards ready!
Thanks to A Jillian Vance Design, for their early Christmas gifts and the opportunity to be a Guest Blogger! I came up with this cute little gift card holder, shaped like a gift, but it’s a card!
I based this loosely on this Graduation Card, it’s a bit differently constructed, and definitely easier!
Just flip up the top, and it opens to reveal the gift card tucked inside.
Here it is all the way open~
The stamped messages are from A Jillian Vance Design’s Merry Moolah set, which is perfect for gift cards and gift tags, and includes 6 fun sentiments!
I’ve had a great time, and I hope you liked my projects! Thanks Jillian for this fun adventure!
