Now for my card today....

This card was so much fun to create! I played around with the Ranger Studio 490 Embossing Paste in Black to create a tone-on-tone background that turned out really, really gorgeous. I also used our Poinsettia Greetings and some Catherine Pooler Inks to watercolor the poinsettia. And, as I felt I needed an element to pull it all together, I decided to play with our Mermaid Bubbles! These are soooo fun and perfect to add on to every project!

Thank you to all the wonderful sponsors!

Merry Mermaid Christmas!

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. So, today I have a super adorable card that I absolutely love! 

If you know me, you know that I'm obsessed with any and all things mermaid. Ariel has been my favorite Disney Princess since I can remember, and I've always been fascinated by all things under the sea! I think our nautical collection and the mermaid stuff from that are definitely some of my favorite sets I've designed. And who says you can only use that collection in the summer? Today I have an adorable Christmas card using the Sea Shells & Mermaid Tail die set. I used the Scattered Circles Strip Die to create the snowflakes. The AJVD products used are below!

Embossing Paste Technique

Hello, everyone! Jillian here. Today I'm here with a really cool technique I'm excited to share with you!

I decided to play with some Studio 490 Embossing Paste by Wendy Vecchi. I love this product, it's so much fun and I could just play with it all day! I created a video showing you how you can create gorgeous backgrounds/mixed media projects using the embossing paste along with Catherine Pooler inks (which you all know are my favorite, tried and true inks! The best on the market, in my opinion).  The paste is available in an array of colors, but I used the white and added in the inks to create vibrant, beautiful colors. I also created a card using the technique. Check it out below and don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel if you enjoyed and want to see more videos! All AJVD products will be below.

All A Jillian Vance Design Products and Catherine Pooler inks available in our online and retail store.
