Happy Easter Bunny Card

by egarcia on March 26, 2015

Hi all,

I have a fun Easter card for you today featuring some older Lawn Fawn stamps.

Happy Easter Bunny CardI love the deep pink color of that card stock.  It’s the perfect backdrop for this adorable Easter scene with the bunny hopping over the flowers in search of the Easter egg.

Happy Easter Bunny Card close upTo create the scene I used images from the Lawn Fawn Happy Easter set.  I stamped the flowers and colored them in with my copics.  I stamped the one little egg and colored it in as well.  I drew in the grass with my copic markers and inked around the bottom with distress inks.  The stamp set includes both the bunny and the little hop trail.  I stamped both of those next on the scene.  That nice big Happy Easter sentiment is also in the set along with the little heart I used to embellish the sentiment.  I used my Fiskars border punch and some fuzzy pink rik rak ribbon from my stash to create the border and the card was done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  See more Easter projects in the Easter section of my shop.

Happy Easter Cross Card

by egarcia on March 24, 2015

Hi all,

Can you believe Easter is just two weeks away!  It’s hard to digest when we still have so much snow on the ground here in Ct.  So to remind myself that it is indeed Spring and Easter is coming soon, I’m sharing this Easter card today.Happy Easter Cross CardFor this card I used patterned papers from my stash for the background.  There’s so many different elements to that background paper that it can stand pretty much on its own, it’s so pretty.

Happy Easter Cross Close upFor the focal I stamped the image on white card stock and then colored it in.  There’s a bit of a shimmer to the silver parts of the cross.  I then used my oval dies to cut it out and the scalloped oval mat behind it.

Happy Easter Card SentimentFor the sentiment I stamped the “Happy Easter” with brown ink onto white card stock. I then die-cut it using Spellbinders Labels Four Dies.  I added the brown ribbon behind it for some added texture.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  And if you liked it share it via Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Baby Girl Tags

by egarcia on March 19, 2015

Hi all,

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, finally!  Springtime isn’t just about flowers and Easter egg hunts, but it’s also about babies.  So, today I’m sharing a cute set of tags celebrating the arrival of a new baby girl.

Baby Girl TagsThese were so much fun to create.  I used the Lawn Fawn Birthday Tags and Plus One stamp sets.  I used the coordinating tag die to die-cut each tag from white card stock.  The stork was stamped and colored in with copics and then I used the coordinating dies for Plus One to die-cut the images out.  I stamped the sentiment onto the tag and the final touch was adding the twine.

Baby Girl Tags Close UpHere’s a closer look at one of the tags.  Aren’t they cute?  These would be perfect to add to baby shower gifts or favors.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  For more baby tags and cards visit the Baby section of the Doodleshop.

Easter Blessings Tags

by egarcia on March 17, 2015

Hi all,

Today I have a brand new product to the Doodleshop store, Easter tags.  These can be used to add to your Easter baskets or for any Easter gift bags.

Easter Blessings TagsI used the Tags for Spring stamp set for the images.  I stamped these with Mama Elephant pigment inks onto white card stock.  I then used Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities dies to cut them out.  I stamped the Easter Blessings sentiment, which comes from the Prayers and Blessings stamp set from Our Craft Lounge, with white pigment ink, sprinkled some white embossing powder on top and heat set.

Easter Blessings Tag close-upTo create the tag I used the Lacey Circles dies to cut out the scalloped circle from kraft card stock.  For the pink tags I used Lawn Fawn Lawn Trimmings for the hemp twine.  The blue tags I used hemp twine in a kraft color.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  To order these tags or a custom version of these tags,  visit my Etsy shop.

All Occasion Love Floral Card

by egarcia on March 10, 2015

Hi all,

The temperatures are finally getting a bit warmer here in New England.  Spring is definitely near.  In that spirit I’m sharing an all occasion love card that features a gorgeous floral focal.

All Occasion Love FloralFor this project I used the  Delightful Dahlia Additions by Papertrey Ink and the coordinating dies.  This is one of those three step stamps where you progressively create the depth in the flowers with each separate stamp to create the complete image.  I have to tell you it was tricky for me to align each stamp with the image and get it to stamp just right.  I almost gave up.  But I’m so glad I didn’t.  I used a combination of pink inks from my stash.  For the leaves I stuck to just one layer, kept it simple.  The final touch to the flowers were the pink rhinestones.

All Occasion Love Card Floral Close UpWith such an elaborate focal image the rest of the card was pretty simple.  I stamped the sentiment with coordinating pink inks onto the white panel and added the whole thing to a pink card stock base.  I love the sentiment on this one because it could work for so many different occasions including Mother’s Day (from Mom to Daughter, or vice versa), Birthdays, Encouragement, or even an Anniversary.

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