Merry Christmas Gift Card Holder

by egarcia on November 9, 2017

Hi all,

I’ve been working on lots of gift card holders and tags the last few days.  I need to get them up on the Etsy shop soon!  Here’s a gift card holder that you can find now on the store.

The secret to this project is Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Small Envelope die. I absolutely love this die.  I used it to cut out the patterned paper.  The die cuts out the shape and gives you the score lines to fold.  I used some Scor-tape to put it together.  For the sentiment I used the Wet Paint Holiday die from Papertrey Ink to cut the words Merry Christmas from red card stock.  I used my Wink of Stella pen to add the shimmer.

Here is the other side of the gift card holder.  I just love that pretty stitched edge.  I inked the edge with some brown ink to make it stand out a bit more.

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

Wishing You A Happy Thanksgiving Card

by egarcia on November 8, 2017

Hi all,

I had so much fun using the Forest Feast set from Lawn Fawn last time that I have another card using this set to share with you today.

I created the background using the Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die from Lawn Fawn.  I used the Grassy Border die to create the grass from patterned paper.

For the scene with the critters I used images from Forest Feast and the coordinating dies.  I colored the images with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.  For the sentiment I used the Happy Thanksgiving stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp.  I die cut the Thanksgiving from patterned paper.  The “Wishing you a happy” part of the sentiment was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder onto the strip of paper.

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

Thanksgiving Critters Card

by egarcia on November 2, 2017

Hi all,

I hope you all had a great Halloween.  People seem to have already jumped into the Holiday season and skipped right over Thanksgiving.  I even heard holiday music already on the radio!  I love Christmas, but November 1st is too early event for me.  So in order to slow things down a bit and not just gloss over Thanksgiving I’m sharing a Thanksgiving card with you today.

How cute is this scene with woodland critters having their own thanksgiving feast?  I started out creating the frame using Lawn Fawn’s Leafy Tree Backdrop die.  The die set also includes the die to create the top part of the tree.

For the scene I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die to create the grass.  The critters and food setting all come from Lawn Fawn’s Forest Feast stamps and dies. I used Zig Real Brush Pens to color in the images.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the patterned paper and comes from the same set.

It was so much fun creating this Thanksgiving scene.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

FMS 310: Happy Turkey Day

by egarcia on October 28, 2017

Hi all,

A bonus post for you today.   I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and I immediately thought of making this card.

I was inspired to create this fun Thanksgiving card shifting the sketch a bit.

I started out with Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the card base.  I used patterned papers from the A Perfect Autumn collection from Echo Park. I inked each panel with some brown ink which makes each piece stand out a bit more.

For the focal image I used the cute Turkey image from Lawn Fawn’s Turkey Day stamp set. I used my copics to color the image.  Then used the coordinating die to cut it out.  The sentiment was stamped onto the patterned paper and it also comes from the same stamp set.

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

Haunted House Card

by egarcia on October 26, 2017

Hi all,

One of the things I love about Doodlebug is that their paper packs always include sheets with blocks of images that can totally be used as focals on a card like I did on this card.This card was made with papers from last year’s collection from Doodlebug called Boos & Brews.  I made cards last year with this collection and this year and I still have pieces left!  I created the background with two different papers from the collection.  The Sweet Mango card base from Gina K. Designs creates a nice border around the various pieces of paper.

I matted a piece of the purple patterned paper onto orange paper which helps to make the focal block piece look a bit bigger.  The little haunted house image piece was also matted with card stock.  The sentiment strip also comes from a patterned paper in the collection.  I cut a flag end to the strip.  The final touch were some purple enamel dots from my stash.

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

And don’t forget all Halloween cards and tags are on sale through October 31st at the Doodleshop.  Go check them out before they’re gone.
