AJVD: Springtacular Blog Hop

Welcome to A Jillian Vance Designs (AJVD)'s Springtacular Blog Hop! If you came from Denise's blog, you're in the right place. Otherwise, please start from Jillian's blog :)


The theme of the blog hop is anything PASTEL! I used a combination of Sunburst Swirl Background Builder Stamp and Bloom'n Trio stamp set.



...and came up with this...

Sunshine and Flower by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Card Base: Core'dinations/David Tutera Celebrate Cardmaking System; Stamp: AJVD (Sunburst Swirl, Bloom'n Trio); Ink: ImagineCrafts/TSUKINEKO (Rose Bud, Dandelion, Green); Bling: Want2Scrap (Yellow); Adhesive and Tool: ScraPerfect (Best Glue Ever and Embellie Gellie); Other: Pink Brad; White Tissue Paper

After stamping the Sunburst Swirl Background Builder Stamp with Memento's Dandelion ink, I took several layers of white tissue paper (on the non-shiny side) and inked my dotted blossom image of the Bloom'n Trio stamp set several times. Since I couldn't find my Blossom Three die template, I just cut them out with scissors while watching TV! LOL!!


I poked a hole in the middle of six layers and inserted a pink brad. Next I gave the blossom dimension by wrinkling the layers and adhered on the card as shown. Stamp your sentiment and add some bling. It's ready to send out!
