09/17/2015Hi crafters! I’m Guesting over at the A Jillian Vance Design blog (AJVD) again today! I made a somewhat simple Halloween card today using 2 of their stamp sets: Broom Rides and Halloween Greetings. The sequins are all AJVD sequins: Kelly Green, Scarlet, and Fuchsia. The hat and the broom are just basic coloring using Copics. And the frog is stamped with green ink. Easy peasy! Hope you like! Make sure to head over to the AJVD blog to see other great designs from the designers on their design team! ~Valerie
09/16/2015Welcome to Day 6 of the DeNami Design Sneak Peek Week!! I’m using these 3 new stamps today: Small Winter Star Tree, Evergreen Owl Trio, and Arched Merry Christmas. I created a fun Christmas shaker card! I loved coloring these 3 little guys! They’re colored with Copic Sketch markers. The sentiment is stamped with Lawn Fawn’s Cranberry ink pad. All the die cuts (except the hill) are from the Mama Elephant Basic Cuts die set; the hill is cut using one of the dies from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders dies. The sequins are all Pretty Pink Posh (colors listed below). Make sure to head over to the DeNami Design blog to see the other awesome projects created by Nami & Lisa, and to see what prizes they just me be offering!
09/15/2015Welcome to Day 5 of the DeNami Design Fall Release Sneak Peek Week! Today I’m featuring 4 new DeNami stamps: Jack ‘O Lantern, Chickie Trio Halloween Night, Small Broomstick, and Upright Happy Halloween. My card is fairly simple, so the focus could be on the adorable Halloween scene and the Pretty sentiment stamp, Upright Happy Halloween. I had so much fun creating this little scene! A little scary, but mostly adorable! I colored the images with Copic Sketch markers. The silver stars were the perfect final touch; they are from Pretty Pink Posh. Make sure you head over to the DeNami Design blog to see the full Sneak Peek of the new stamps today, and the prizes you have a chance of winning!
Happy Tuesday, Crafters! Today I’m Guest Designing for the A Jillian Vance Design blog!
For today’s project I made 2 Halloween cards (yes, it’s my favorite holiday to make cards for!).
My first one is using lots of patterned papers, some ribbon, and 2 doilies:I’m using these Jillian Vance products: Broom Rides stamp set, Halloween Tiny Tags Combo set, Mini Pearl Tag die set, Black Pear Pins, and the Black Onyx sequins. I stamped ALL the little sentiments from the Halloween Tiny Tags Combo set with various inks onto the larger tag. And the twine pieces all come from various twine spools I have on hand.
For my second card, I created a Distress Ink background; I used all the same Jillian Vance supplies on this card:
So that’s it! Hope you enjoyed!
I’ll be back in a couple days with more inspiration; so until then, Happy Crafting!
09/14/2015WOW, we’re having one great Sneak Peek Week over at DeNami Design, aren’t we?! I actually have a 2nd post for you today, using a new product, Whimsical Cityscape. I paired it with Bicycle Chickie and Day Filled w/ Happiness to create this fun card! The skyline is stamped with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink onto Ranger Watercolor paper, and painted with Distress Inks (colors are shown in Supply List at bottom of post). The chickie is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto X-Press It Blending Card paper, and colored with Copic Sketch markers. The sentiment is stamped with Lawn Fawn’s Juice Box ink pad. The patterned paper comes from Doodlebug’s 6×6 Hello Sunshine paper pad. I used Lawn Fawn’s Large and Small Square Stitched Stackables die sets to do all the die cutting. The wooden stars are from Studio Calico (which I painted with my Zig Clear Glitter Brush), and the sequins are Pretty Pink Posh’s Sparkling Clear 4mm & 6mm Cupped sequins. Hope I gave you some inspiration today! Thanks for visiting, and Happy Crafting!
