Unicorn Birthday Card

by egarcia on February 16, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a unicorn birthday card to share with you.  Lately I have seen unicorns everywhere it seems so I thought I’d play with my own and create this birthday card.

I created the dotted background stamping a dotted background stamp onto the white card stock.  The images come from Lawn Fawns Critters Ever After and I used my comics to color the unicorn and castle.  For the sentiment I used the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I white embossed the sentiment onto the Blue Lagoon card stock from Gina K. Designs

Here’s a close-up of that focal area.  I added a bit of shimmer to the flags on the castle and the unicorn’s horn and this card was done.

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

Second Take on February Birthday Card

by egarcia on February 9, 2017

Hi all,

Here’s another take on the February Birthday card I shared on Tuesday.  The previous one had more of a vintage romantic feel, this one is more fun and modern.

For this one I started out with the kraft card stock for the card base.  The hearts patterned paper works for both masculine or feminine with the combination of reds and pinks but also grays and blues.

For the focal I used the Papertrey Ink Birthday Classics: February set again.  This time I  stamped it onto a die-cut paper with an ombre color pattern.  The scalloped rectangle was created using Blueprints Tag Builder 3 from My Favorite Things, a great collection of dies, many Valentine or love themed.  I added some die-cut hearts to which I added shimmer with my Wink of Stella pen.  I also used some red sequins to finish off the embellishing.

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

February Birthday Card

by egarcia on February 7, 2017

Hello All,

With all the excitement over Valentine’s Day let’s not forget those February birthdays.  So today I have a Valentine’s themed February birthday card.

All of the beautiful patterned papers you see come from the Mon Amour patterned paper pad from Graphic 45.

For the focal I die-cut a heart from the same patterned paper pack.  I inked the edges to add to the vintage look of the card.  The sentiment comes from Papertrey Ink’s Birthday Classics: February set, a nice large sentiment.

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

Embossed Background Valentine Card

by egarcia on February 2, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a Valentine’s Day card with using a technique with an embossing folder that I’ve been wanting to try for some time.

I started with a hearts embossing folder.  I applied red ink onto one side of the embossing folder, placed a white piece of card stock inside the folder, and then ran it through my Big Shot.  The ink transferred onto the white card stock and created the embossed pattern.  But then I took a baby wipe and wiped it over top and ended up spreading some of the ink onto the other areas creating a tone on tone look with the embossed hearts slightly lighter in tone than the background.

You can really see the effect on this close up shot.  I kept the rest pretty simple using some stamped and die-cut hearts from the All My Love stamp set by My Favorite Things and a die-cut and stamped sentiment strip with a sentiment from an older set from my stash.

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

Elegant Valentine’s Day Card

by egarcia on January 31, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have another Valentine’s Day card.  This one has more of an elegant look.

I started out with some Cranberry Tart card stock from Gina K. Design for the base of the card and also for the heart focal.  For the background I used the Lace background stamp from My Favorite Things with some red ink.  I just love the elegant look of that design.

I die-cut the heart using my Spellbinders heart dies.  Then I stamped and white embossed the sentiment from the Valentine Spoons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.

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