Yee Haw!!!!!

Happy Thursday!

I have such a fun project for you today using A Jillian Vance Design stamps! I actually have two versions of this same project but you'll have to wait until the weekend for the second one.

This week I'm working with my new favorite set, the Kid Zipper Stamp Set. This set is themed towards cards for kids and pair perfectly with the Zipper {die}vice Die. Annnndddd....I also wanted to play with my new Silhouette Cameo, particularly the Print and Cut feature because it's so easy to use! The end result was this gift bag.....

Using images I purchased in the Silhouette store I created a fun little print and cut wanted poster along with the chubby horse and his chubby little cow friend. I downloaded a cut file from the Silhouette store for my tag base that I used the Zipper {die}vice on.

Using a couple of markers I added some decorations around the edge of the gift bag. Underneath the zipper you have this sentiment.

Isn't he cute?

A Tooth For You

Happy Thursday!

It's my design team day at A Jillian Vance Design! This week I have another new stamp to show you. This one is a really fun set made for use with the Zipper {die}vice. I have a Tooth Fairy card using the new Kid Zipper Stamp Set.

I used the tooth from the Cricut Baby Steps cartridge and left off the top layer with the little smiley face. I used the Zipper {die}vice on the top layer. I then stamped my sentiment on the top layer. I added the name using some October Afternoon letter stickers. I finished the front off with some pearls and some Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.

When I adhered the top layer of the tooth, I left space where I could have inserted a gift card or money.

Good Times

Happy Thursday!

It's design team day for me at A Jillian Vance Design. All this month I'm working with their newest stamp releases for Winter CHA. They are available now in the store and will be shipping around the 18th of this month!

This week I'm using the new Good Times Stamp set. I decided to make a mini card set.

My cards are sized at 3"x3". I embossed the clock and sentiments with white embossing powder then lightly inked over the white with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I also inked the edges of the card and the patterned background paper with the same ink. I then tied some Carribean bakers twine from The Twinery around the black layer before adding it to the front of the card with pop dots.

The sentiment on the inside of the cards is the same on all of them and I added the tiny clock stamp.

Sealed With a Kiss

Happy Thursday and Happy New Year!

It's A Jillian Vance Design Team time once again. This week I have another treat box for you since Valentines is the other holiday for treats (after Halloween, of course). This week I made a box using the Sending All My Love stamp set and a Chinese takeout box from SVG Cuts.

I love the little background stamp with the tiny hearts. I added that to the circle for the front of the takeout box from the Crush on You Boxes from SVG Cuts. I used Jillian's {die}verse Tag Die for the sentiment on the front of the box.
