Ohio State Coaster

A Jillian Vance Design, Kecia Waters
At 3:19 pm this past Saturday, it became M!ch*g@n Week.  So, in honor of that, I decided to make an Ohio State coaster.  'Cause that's what Ohio State is going to do this Saturday...Coast.  If not, I will probably go into a deep mourning and kick something, hurt my toe and say many choice words.  You've been warned, LOL.

I've made a coaster like this once before, and I will say, they do hold up (like a Buckeye!).  I've had it on my desk for a year and a half at work, with sweaty water bottles and my beloved Diet Coke. 

You can read all about this Buckeye coaster over on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog.


Thanks so much for visiting my blog today!  Make it a great week!
 
Go Buckeyes!  Beat scUM!

Penguin Trio

AJVD, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, penguins

Here's a penguin card for this chilly Monday morning.  You can read all about it today on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.

To make this card, I used masking film that I purchased back in August at Stampaway.  Let's just say, I'm in love with it.  Yay!

Have a super week.  And stay warm.  I'm thinking this cold, snowy weather is here just a bit early this year.

A Great Year Ahead

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

I got out some bright oranges, greens and blues and had some fun coloring up the digital stamp "All About Dad" by Cheryl Grant.  It is available from Sassy Cheryl's stamps and Squigglefly.  I'm thinking it is a perfect image for New Years or a Birthday card.  I paired it with a new sentiment from Squigglefly called "Best of the Year".

Playing along with the Squigglefly blog's current challenge, "Make a Square Card", I printed the image and sentiment and colored with Copic markers.  I placed the image panel a bright blue sheet of cardstock, and sponged some circles with Distress Ink Tumbled Glass with a stencil.  A happy accident of a small scrap of orange and white striped paper from The Paper Studio was placed along the bottom of the card.  An orange enamel dot, sheer white ribbon and crystal beads put some fun finishing touches on this card.

Oh Christmas Tree

Sassy Cheryl's, Kecia Waters, Copic markers, Christmas

Here's a card I made using an image from the Sassy Cheryl's stamp set "It Takes One To Know One".  Isn't she sweet in her Christmas tree dress?

I colored the image with Copic markers,  I added some Diamond Glaze to the two ornaments she is holding.  I put some Wink of Stella on her star accessories.

Patterned paper from Jillibean Soup forms the square card panel.  The sentiment from Impression Obession was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black. Red ribbon, button and Baker's Twine put the finishing touches on this card. 

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.

Holly & Swirls

A Jillian Vance Design, Kecia Waters, holly, Christmas

I made this card this weekend using the A Jillian Vance Design die set "Holly & Swirls."  I had fun sponging the leaves cut from patterned paper and making some of the small berries with my red Viva Pearl Pen.  You can read all about this card my post on the A Jillian Vance Design blog.

This card didn't require any coloring.  And, I didn't color all weekend.  Sounds like I'll be a grinch for the rest of the week.  Just warning you all, LOL.  Coloring is my means of weekend relaxing.  Just didn't happen. 

Bah Humbug!

In The Meadow

A Jillian Vance Design, Whimsie Doodles, Kecia Waters, snowman

As much as I'm not looking forward to the cold weather and snow, I must admit that I like to make cards with snowmen.  I love the pop of white against blue colored skies.  This card is probably the first of many, LOL.

I made this card with an A Jillian Vance Design Stamp set "In the Meadow" by Whimsie Doodles.  You can read all about this card on my post on the AJVD blog.

Stay warm, I'm afraid the cold weather is now here.  Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.

Snowman Angel

Sassy Cheryl's, Squigglefly, Kecia Waters, Copic markers

So nice to have an extra hour this weekend to color!  Here's a card I made using the image "Fat Round Snowman" by Cheryl Grant

I printed the image onto Hammermill Color Copy Digital paper.  I colored the image with Copic markers, and did some slight shading with Prismacolor pencils.  I added some sparkle to the wings with a clear Wink of Stella pen.

I framed the image with kraft cardstock, and placed on a card panel from Basic Grey.  I paper pierced around this panel, and faux stitched with a color pencil.

A small button with hemp cord, and the sentiment from Impression Obsession stamped with Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy, complete the details of this card.

This week's challenge on the Squigglefly blog is to use patterned paper.  Hope you join us for all of the fun.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today.  Another post to follow in just a few short hours.
