Owl You Need

Hello! I have a card today for the A Jillian Vance Design blog! Sadly, this will be my last one for their wonderful design team because of my new job that is fantastic, but sucks up most of my crafting time now!

I made a Valentine’s Day card using the Happy {OWL}entine’s Day stamp set. The colored images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copic Sketch markers

Jillian Vance stamps & sequins, MFT papers, Copics {ValByDesign, 2016} I cut the card frame pieces with paper from the My Favorite Things 6×6 Homespun Gingham paper pack. The branch is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The sentiment is stamped with Memento London Fog ink.

Jillian Vance stamps & sequins, MFT papers, Copics {ValByDesign, 2016} I added AJVD sequins to finish off the card: Snowcap White 4mm, and Pure Gold Satin mix.

Thursday Cuppa Joe

I have a sweet card today for my Thursday Cuppa Joe post on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog!  It’s all kitty sweetness and pastels on this design with a mix of My Favorite Things (MFT) products and Pretty Pink Posh (PPP) sequins. 

I started by die cutting the papers from the MFT 6×6 Neutral Dots & Stripes paper pad, the Avery Elle 6×6 Sorbet paper pad, and a piece of Kraft paper using the MFT Coffee Cup die set. I then stamped the sentiment from the MFT Perk Up stamp set using VersaFine Onyx Black ink. The little paw print comes from the MFT You Make My Tail Wag stamp set.

MFT stamps & dies & paper, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Copics {ValByDesign, 2016} Next I stamped all the kitties from the MFT I Knead You stamp set onto X-Press It paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and I colored them with Copic Sketch markers. I glued the cup pieces together and the kitty behind it on top. Then I adhered that down to the striped Avery Elle Sorbet paper that was die cut using the largest die from the MFT Cross-Stitch Rectangle STAX die set.

MFT stamps & dies & paper, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Copics {ValByDesign, 2016} The sequins are all Pretty Pink Posh: Pink Blush 4mm Cupped, Pink Blush 6mm Cupped, and Metallic Silver 4mm Cupped. Then I painted the cup’s lid and the kitty’s collar with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Pen Marker.
