Christmas with Happy Trails


ADVD, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

 Happy Monday!  Merry Christmas!?  That's right.  We're celebrating "Christmas In July" this week at AJVD.  I wanted to share a card with you that I made with "Happy Trails" by Whimsie Doodles, which is a set that you might not deem as a Christmas stamp set.  

But, look at what you can do with "Happy Trails".  That adorable little bear wants to be a part of Christmas cards too!  And the set has the perfect trees for Christmas.  All I did was add a little string of lights as an embellishment, and I now have my first Christmas card done for the year!

ADJD, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

To make this card, I simply brayered Ranger's Adirondack Sailboat Blue and Distress Ink Faded Jeans onto white cardstock.  With a paint brush, I added dots of Copic White to appear like falling snow in the sky.  I tore some white cardstock to put at the base of my scene to appear as snow.  The trees, stars and bear are all from "Happy Trails" by Whimsie Doodles and were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto X-Press It cardstock.  I colored these elements with Copic markers and fussy cut with detailed scissors to become part of the scene.  I added the string of lights from Jolee's.  I framed the scene with black cardstock and put onto a white cardstock base.

The sentiment is from AJVD's "Miss Adventures: Celebrate" by Whimsie Doodles.  That was stamped with my go-to sentiment ink, Tsukineko's Versafine Onyx Black.

Ghostly Greetings!

Well the A Jillian Vance Design Quilt Dies can be used for ANY occasion!
Here the little Ghosts are hanging the Nine Patch, Eight Point Star and Pinwheel blocks on the line!
There are 5 Quilt Block die in all!  All are dual purpose which means they have stitching on the OUTSIDE of the cutting line as well, so it leaves that stitching on the negative cut of the paper so it can also be used in your projects!

I did this 8 x 8 layout for a display at one of Jillian's shows.
The Ghosts are actually the Owl Duo Die turned upside down and googly eyes added! Easy Peasy!
The Quilt dies that were released in January 2014, are so versatile, use them as a center piece on a card or layout, change up the colors for Holidays or any occasion, use plain or printed card stock for totally different looks!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Halloween is approaching FAST!

You can see from the side view the craft foam that I cut out with the die as well as the red and green glitter in the shaker!

Since the 3mm craft foam and the layers were higher I stacked two Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to bring the holly to that height.
