#HappyBirthday Owl Card

by egarcia on July 7, 2015

Hi all,

I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July weekend.  Today I’m back to my crafting week with this fun #birthday card.

#happybirthday owl cardThis was such a fun birthday card to create.  The papers came from a stash of an older 6×6 Pink Paislee pad of patterned papers.

#happybirthday owl card close-upFor the focal scene, I started out stamping the photo frame from the #Awesome stamp set from Lawn Fawn onto white card stock.  I stamped it again and cut out the inside of the frame to create my scene.  I used Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die to create the grassy border.  I stamped the owl and the dragonfly from Critters in the Forest and colored them in with my copic markers.  The birthday hat was stamped from the Hats Off To You stamp set and also colored in with alcohol markers.  I used my Wink of Stella to add a bit of shimmer to the wings of the dragonfly.  Finally I stamped the sentiment from the #Awesome set with black ink onto the yellow patterned paper.

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

Wedding Bells Card

by egarcia on July 2, 2015

Hi all,

Sorry it’s been a bit quiet here on the blog the last couple of weeks.  It’s been a bit of a busy time for me, but I’m back and happy  to share a wedding card with you today.

Wedding Bells CardI just love how this one turned out.  I used a combination of different goodies for this one including products from the May Simon Says Stamp kit.  Like I said I’m a bit behind with my Simon kits.  I’m hoping to catch up in these next few weeks, so stay tuned.  Those pretty patterned papers, for instance, are from My Minds Eye and were included in the kit.  I created the elegant border using the Dainty Lace Border die from My Favorite Things.

Wedding Bells Card close-upThe wedding bells image was stamped and colored in with my copic markers.   The image comes from the Happily Ever After stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I added some Wink of Stella Shimmer pen to the ribbon part of the image.  Then I die-cut it out with my circle dies from Spellbinders.

Wedding Bells Card sentiment close-upFor the sentiment I used the Congratulations stamp set from Simon Says Stamp that came in the kit.  I stamped it with black ink and matted it with a coordinating paper.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  And don’t forget to click on those share buttons.

Sweet Friend Card

by egarcia on June 16, 2015

Hi all,

Today I have a sweet friendship card for you featuring some oldies but goodies from my stash.

Sweet Friend CardThis card is an example of a great way to use those little pieces of scrap patterned paper to create a completely new background for your card.  I used different strips of patterned paper from the Berries and Vines 6×6 paper pad by Gina K. Designs to create the background.

Sweet Friend Card close-upFor the focal I stamped the strawberries onto white card stock and used my copic markers to color the image in.  The image and sentiment both come from the Sweet Strawberries stamp set also by Gina K. Designs. I then cut out the image with my oval Spellbinders nestabilities dies.

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

Let’s Party & Celebrate You Card

by egarcia on June 9, 2015

Hi all,

Ok, so I’m a bit behind in my Simon Says Stamp kits.  I keep purchasing the new one when it comes out, of course, but other things come up and I don’t get to play with the kit until later in the month.  Today’s card is a birthday card that I created using the April kit!

Let's Party & Celebrate You CardI love how fun and bright this card turned out.  I started out with the white card stock and used pink and blue inks from Mama Elephant to create the background.

Candles close up

Finally, the kit also included some washi tape which I used to create the candles.  I stamped the flames of the candles, which are also included in the stamp set, with some Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  I love how thick and shimmery this ink is.

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

Happy Dad’s Day Chair Card

by egarcia on June 5, 2015

Hi all,

I’ve got another Father’s Day card for you today.

Happy Dad's Day Chair CardThis card would be perfect for that Dad who has a favorite old and worn out chair from all of his years of using it.

Happy Dad's Day Chair Close-UpFor the focal and the sentiment I used Lawn Fawn’s Dad’s Day stamp set.  I stamped the chair with blue ink and cut it out with Spellbinders Circle dies.  The sentiment was stamped onto a the white cad stock strip.  I then trimmed the ends of the strip to create the flag ends.

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