Special Bride & Groom Card

by egarcia on June 22, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a wedding card to share with you.  I had a lot of fun with my gold Wink of Stella pen on this one.

I started out with the beautiful Wedding Bliss patterned paper for the background.

For the focal I used the cake and heart images from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Wedding stamp set.  I stamped the cake onto pink patterned paper and used my gold Wink of Stella pen to color in the gold parts of the cake.  I love the shimmer and shine this adds.  I stamped the hearts on white card stock, colored them in in gold also, and fuzzy cut them to be able to easily add them onto the cake.  For the sentiment I used the Together Forever stamp set from My Favorite Things.  It’s an older set but it has great sentiments for weddings and anniversary cards.

Here you get a better glimpse at the shimmery gold on that cake.  Just love it!

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

Couple’s Anniversary Card

by egarcia on June 20, 2017

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing an anniversary card that you can give to your favorite couple.  It occurred to me that because so many weddings take place around this time of year, it also means that many couples are celebrating anniversaries around this same time.  

I started out with patterned papers from the Wedding Bliss collection by Echo Park.  For some reason I find a hard time finding wedding themed papers that I truly like, and this collection was really great.  Such a great variety of patterned papers.

For the focal area I die-cut a heart from gold card stock, using some Spellbinders hearts dies.  The sentiment was stamped in one of my favorite inks, Delicata Golden Glitz. It’s like a gold pigment ink.  The sentiment comes from the Together Forever stamp set by My Favorite Things. I just love all the gold on this card.

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

World To Me Dad Card

by egarcia on June 15, 2017

Hi all,

Here’s the final Father’s Day card before the big day this weekend.  

Once again I’m using the Old World Travel collection by Carta Bella for the patterned paper.  I inked the edges a bit so that it would stand out from that kraft card stock.  All of those globe images were perfect for the image in the Masculine Motifs stamp set by Papertrey ink.

I stamped the image with kraft ink.  I combined two sentiments from the same stamp set, which perfectly coordinated with the image as well.  I cut out the panel with my rectangle stitched dies, matted the piece, added some brads, and the card was done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Have a great Father’s Day weekend!

Sailboat Father’s Day Card

by egarcia on June 13, 2017

Hi all,

It is scorching hot today in Connecticut.  Given the heat I think this Father’s Day card is appropriate for today, featuring a nice rustic image of a sailboat.  

I think this might be one of my favorite’s this Father’s Day season.  The patterned papers come from the same patterned paper I’ve been using in all my masculine cards recently, the Old World Travel collection by Carta Bella.  I inked the edges to give it that bit of a vintage feel.

For the focal I used Papertrey Ink’s Masculine Motifs.  The images already have that rustic look to them so they won’t stamp completely solid.  I used by stitched circle dies to cut out the white card stock.  The sentiment comes from the same set.  I embellished the sentiment strip with the brads.

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

Train Father’s Day Card

by egarcia on June 8, 2017

Hi all,

With Father’s Day fast approaching I thought I’d share a Father’s Day card with you today.

I started out with that awesome patterned paper from Old World Travel collection by Carta Bella.  I’ve been trying to follow the footsteps of Kristie from the blog The Best Things In Life Are Pink.  She has this series, where she takes one 6×6 paper pad and creates a whole bunch  of cards with it until she finishes it all up.  So I’ve been trying to do the same with this collection from Carta Bella, making a bunch of masculine cards including Father’s Day cards.  I’m not as quick as she is or as elaborate in my sketches, but it does feel good to make the most use out of a 6×6 pad.

For the focal I turned to my trusty Past Times Hero Arts stamp set and some brown ink.  The sentiment comes from the Masculine Motifs set by Papertrey Ink.  I used my circle and stitched circle dies to cut the panels, but them together and this card was done.

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