Halloween Wishes Card

by egarcia on October 23, 2014

Hi all:

Today I have another Halloween card for you. il_570xN.659727104_4fkgIsn’t she adorable?  This card is proof that you don’t have to have the latest papers and stamps to create a beautiful card.  The papers are old papers I have had in my stash for a while, but I just love the colors and “distress” look of the black smudges (I don’t know what else to call them) in the bottom part of the paper.  It adds something to the spookiness of the card, but yet it’s not too spooky when you add the cute little witch.

il_570xN.659727202_f3whThe image comes from an older stamp set.  I’m sorry I don’t have the name of it, but it’s been in my stash quite a while, way before I started actually organizing my stamp sets.  I colored her in with my copics.  The sentiment comes from Hero Arts Happy Halloween stamp set and I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I used my Stitched Rectangle dies from Lil Inker.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Witch Way Halloween Card Take2

by egarcia on October 21, 2014

Hi all,

Today I’m returning to Halloween cards with a different take using the Witch Way is the Candy stamp set from My Favorite Things.

 

il_570xN.659841633_3iduI stamped the witch onto white card stock and colored her in using my copic markers.  I then paper pieced the pumpkins.  Dies are included for those in the coordinating die set, but I wanted the black edge, so I just fussy cut them with them scissors.

il_570xN.659841697_1tuiHere’s a closer look at those images.  I just love the images in this set.  They are a lot of fun to color and play with.

il_570xN.659841735_4d6gLately I’ve been getting into stamping and embossing my sentiments, which is what I did here.  I then cut the strip end into that flag shape with my scissors.  The papers I used are from an older set in my stash.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Sheep!!!!

by egarcia on October 20, 2014

Hi all,

I have a different kind of post for you today.  No time to scrapbook today because we were invited to visit a sheep farm.  It was a very cold fall day today which wil explain the layers we have on. Nonetheless we still had a nice time learning about different kinds of sheep, watching an adorable border collie herd the sheep, and finally, petting some sheep.  Here’s a little bit of what we got to see today.

IMG_0980My husband and my daughter happy to be on a sheep farm even if it was a little cold.

 

IMG_0982Fuzzy sheep!  These were new to the farm and were still a bit uncomfortable around people.  So even though we desperately wanted to pet all of that fuzziness they kept running away from us.

IMG_0994_2Finally at the very end she got to pet them.  They were so soft.  It was wonderful to spend a Sunday afternoon admiring such beautiful gentle creatures.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Java Nice Day Birthday Card

by egarcia on October 16, 2014

Hi all,

I have one more card for you using the Simon Says Stamp October kit.  The November kit has already been announced, but while I wait for it to arrive I’ll keep playing with the October one.  il_570xN.662983850_5ahmThis is the perfect birthday card for your coffee loving friends and family members.  I recently made a similar one for a friend whose birthday was a couple of weeks ago.  I used the papers from the kit for the patterned paper and to paper piece the coffee cup.  I stamped the “java great day” onto the center of the cup with brown ink and used a brown copic marker to color in the coffee inside the cup.

il_570xN.662983896_3soeFor the birthday sentiment I used the Simon Says Stamp Happy set.  It was great to be able to bring in some of my other SSS stamps to play along with the kit.  Finally I added the sequins that come in the kit and my card was done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Latte Thanks SSS October Kit

by egarcia on October 14, 2014

Hi All:

Today I have another coffee themed card made using the October Simon Says Stamp kit.

il_570xN.663123355_8d19This card was very easy to create using all the included items in the kit.  I started out with white card stock and cut the two strips of patterned paper from the paper included in the kit.

il_570xN.663123453_itfrFor the focal I used the Coffee Cup die to cut out the cup from the patterned papers.  I then  used SSS Khaki ink to stamp the steam which comes in the stamp set included in the kit.  Finally I stamped the sentiment with some brown ink and was done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project. Thanks so much for stopping by!
