Fun Stamps From A Jillian Vance Design

Hello!

If this is your first time to my blog, welcome! My name is Jennifer Palmer and this is my blog S.U.I. – Scrapping Under the Influence. I’ve been a paper crafter for about three years now. I started out with a few stamp sets, making cards and doing scrapbook pages and since I got my first Cricut have branched out into all kinds of altered projects and other paper crafts.

Today, I've been asked to be a guest designer for A Jillian Vance Design. Jillian designs some amazing stamps and I just bought my first sets. I've designed two cards and tag using her sentiment stamps. I love that her sentiments and these are some of the best I've seen for Halloween. They are so unique and fun. I will definitely be buying some more of these!

My first card is "Smell My Feet".


This is a simple gatefold card using one of the trick-or-treaters from the Mini Monsters Cricut cartridge.



The inside is very simple, but the stamp adds the perfect touch of whimsy to finish off the card. This stamp is from the "Eye on Halloween" stamps set.

Supplies:
A Jillian Vance Design "Eye on Halloween" stamp set
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Black Soot
Patterned paper, candy corn border: Fancy Pants Design.
Colored Cardstock: The Paper Company
Cricut Mini Monsters Cardstock
Corner Chomper: Cloud/Scallop

My next card is "Purrrfectly Halloween"


For this card I used images from the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. This is a larger 5x7 card. I added Fully Purple Glimmer Mist. I ran the cat through my Xyron and covered it in Sprinkle and Sparkle Stellar glitter.


Inside, I've used two stamps from Jillian's "Witchy Poo" stamp set.




Supplies:

A Jillian Vance Design "Witchy Poo" stamp set
Close to My Heart Inks: Black, Sunflower, Buttercup
Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Antique Linen, Black Soot
Glimmer Mist: Raven, Fully Purple
Sprinkle N Sparkle Glitter: Implusive Purple, Steller
Pattern Cardstock: Recollections Midnight Magic Halloween Stack
Colored Cardstock: The Paper Company

And finally, my tag "Witching You A Happy Halloween"



For the background I used two of the Tim Holtz seasonal Distress Inks, along with some silver Adirondack alcohol ink mixative. I randomly stamped the birds from the Tim Holtz Lost and Found stamp set.


The cauldron is from the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.


On the cauldron I stamped this adorable poem from Jillian's "Witchy Poo" stamp set. The cauldron is lightly edged with a silver Krylon leaf pen.


I also attached a Tim Holtz fragment using one of Jillian's pear pins. These things are amazing! They're sturdy yet delicate. She has all kinds of ides for these on her blog, Princess and the Paper and on the A Jillian Vance Design blog. The cat on the fragment is also from the "Witchy Poo" stamp set.
