Grill and Candle Birthday Card for a Man

One of my favorite designs for a male card is this one.  I love craft cardstock for cards especially for men.  I used this for two men I know that turned the Big 5-0 this year.  I cut the grill from Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls with red cardstock.  I used a brick color of cardstock and ran it through my Sizzix Texture Fades in Brick to give it the real look of a brick patio.  "Grill Master",  "Where there is smoke, there are lots of candles!" and "Happy Birthday" are all from A Jillian Vance Design stamp set entitled " Celebrate Men".  (I like to think they appreciated the work put into it, even if they didn't appreciate what the verse inferred.)  Ha, Ha!   Got you aging guys!

Stiches and Hems card

Hi, Friends!  This card is made from paper from Doodlebug Designs, Inc. Nifty Notions collection.  I cut the sewing machine out from the paper also.  I like that some of the double-sided paper is in plain colors that coordinate with the prints.  The stiches are stamped, along with the sentiments, from A Jillian Vance Designs stamps.  They are super versitile as you can see!

Beach chair card

This may be a little hard to make out in the picture but the front has been stamped with sunglasses, Life's a Beach and a fish.  The inside has a pop-up beach chair cut on my Vagabond with the Sizzix die.  The Blue on the front and the waves inside are from Colorbok Water Waves paper.  The flip-flops are K&Company stickers.  "Make a Splash" and all the stamps are from A Jillian Vance Design Make a Splash set.

New Scrapbook Page-My Dad and his tractor and tomatoes

I used the Cricut to cut the farmer, tractor and wheat from the Everday Paper Dolls. I used gold Stickles on the tops of the wheat. The printed paper is from Colorbok and is called Haystacks.

A Jillian Vance Design Team Challange--County Fair--UR Tractor Card

With this card, I cut one tractor from Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls at 2 1/2" from green card stock and one from black cardstock. I cut the other four the same way at 3/4". I cut the wheels off of the black tractors and attached them to the tractors. Then I outlined the wheels on the large tractor with black Stickles. I added some bling to the tires with rhinestone brads. I placed "UR" stickers on the front of the tractor. All the tractors are mounted on a paper from Colorbok named " Haystacks". I mounted that on brown cardstock that I had distressed and inked the edges. The card is made with craft card stock. Inside I stamped "Outstanding in Your Field" from A Jillian Vance Design Down on the Farm set. This card would be a cute congratulations card for a child's accomplishment--such as a blue ribbon at the County Fair!

John Deere Card

Directions for this card:
I cheated a little on this card. I found the perfect die cut at Red Letter Journals. The tractor was already cut out for me. I added the gold brads to the wheels. I put a little
" Thank You" on gold cardstock. I used brown cardstock to mount the tractor and distressed the edges and inked them in chocolate brown. The card is made with craft card stock. Inside, You're a Deere" is stamped. This cute saying is from the Down on the Farm set of A Jillian Vance Designs stamps. I liked it because it is a good card for a male. Those are hard to find.

Love that witch!


This is another witch card I designed with Jillian Vance design stamps.  I just love the witch from the Witchy Poo set!  I made the card on craft cardstock.  I cut the moon out of bright gold cardstock.  I liked the looks of the bare tree from the God's Art set for Halloween.  I also added the cute little owl from that set.  Inside it is stamped with the verse: 

When witches go riding
and black cats are seen
The moon laughs and
whispers, tis Halloween.

That verse and many other adorable sayings are in the Witchy Poo set.

Until next time, happy scrappin',

Patchwork Halloween Card


I designed this card using Sizzix Texture Fades Patchwork Embossing folder on black cardstock.  I added dimension to it by inking it with a Radiant Rain Dauber in Egyption Gold.  I made the moon in gold cardstock and then dabbed it with the same color dauber.  I then stamped the witch with Jillian Vance Design stamp from the Witchy Poo set.  I put the front on a craft cardstock card and stamped the inside with "Flying by to say Hi".  I have to say that this is one of my favorite designs.  The "13" on the patchwork texture just seems to pop out when you actually see the card.

Please comment and let me know what you think.

This is a card I made using orange cardstock.  I stamped "Free Broom Rides" with Jillian's Witchy Poo set. I used my Vagabond to run a page Sizzix Little Sizzles Hantung Texture Pad, Assorted Metals and Tim Holtz Alteration Texture Fades "Playing Games set t/o make the ticket.  cut it out by hand.  Inside of the card I stamped "Witch you were Here"  also from Jillian's set.
