A Jillian Vance Design welcomes Guest Designer Rebecca Morefield-Wagner from the Happy Card Encouragement Factory!
I am so excited to be a guest designer for A Jillian Vance Design. I am just getting into stamps so I was excited to win two of Jillian’s stamps sets from a craft challenge. Since then I have purchased a few more and am loving stamping (I was mostly a die cut user). You can imagine my surprise when Bunny asked me to make a card using their cute stamps. I just hope I do them justice!
First off, Bunny asked me to say a little about myself, so here it is. I am a 37 year old home schooling mom of two teenage boys - one of whom is currently a Senior. I have been married to my best friend for almost 19 years who supports me in all that I do. I am also one of the world's biggest nerds. I love all gadgets and gizmos which is why I work part-time at a big box electronics store. That love is really what started me in the world of crafting. I enjoy working with my hands, be it kneading bread, paper piecing or building computers. I was so stressed out building and fixing every one's computers that I needed to do something just for me. Thus The Happy Card Encouragement Factory was born and the rest is history.
For my projects today, I decided to make a few cards. My friend Trish started a challenge over at the Make the Cut forum. She provided the files and we were asked to come up with something crafty. I have the Tender Thoughts stamp set and when I saw the files, the first thing that popped in my head was a monotone background. Something demure and simple, that really showcases the stamps. Makes the sentiment the focal point of the card.
My original intention was just two cards. When I cut the honeycomb pattern out in American Crafts “Play” line paper, I loved the negative too. So I decided to make another card. The white card stock is Georgia Pacific in 67 lb. The ribbons were just a pack I picked up at Hobby Lobby, can’t remember the name.
Thank you for coming by and taking a look. Hope you enjoyed my project for today. Have a great day and happy crafting!
