Teacher Card

by egarcia on August 19, 2014

Hi all,

My daughter starts high school next week!  I can’t believe it.  So today I have a back to school themed card for you.IMG_0015

I recently won over at the Taylored Expressions blog one of her new stamp sets, Mischief Maker Back to School, and I used it here to create this card.  It’s a very cute set of five stamps including this great image of this little girl holding an apple for her teacher.  I’m using Dark Chocolate card stock from Gina K. Designs and the patterned paper comes from Making the Grade 6×6 pad by Little Yellow Bicycle.  Patterned paper lasts me forever and I still have some of this from last year.

IMG_0017Here’s a closer look at the focal image.  I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used my copics to color her.  I used my Lil Inker dies to cut out the stitched rectangle.  I stamped the sentiment onto the brown patterned paper and used my scissors to cut the flag end.  Finally I added the purple rhinestones to the top corner of the card and also on the bow on her hair.

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

Scrapbook Sunday: Halloween Pirate Girl

by egarcia on August 17, 2014

Hi all,

Today I have a Halloween page featuring Halloween day of 2004.  I really enjoyed putting this page together.

IMG_0077The patterned paper includes those beautiful borders and the pumpkins and candies along the bottom.  It was the perfect patterned paper for these fun photos of my daughter in her pirate costume.

IMG_0078For the title I used sticker letters. These as well as the papers are from my stash of things purchased at a tag sale.  I’m fortunate to have an independent paper crafting store still open in my area.  The store owner hosts two great tag sales a year where all of us can sell our goodies at the store and whatever we earn is used as store credit to get new goodies.  Love it!  So these are all finds from one of those tag sales.

IMG_0081The one embellishment I added to the page are those fun pumpkins.  These are dazzles from the Scrapbooking Halloween collection from Hot Off the Press.  I’ve had these forever too and they were just perfect for this page.  I placed the sticker onto the patterned orange paper and then gently cut around all of the edges of the sticker.  It is a bit time consuming but totally worth the look.

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

Thankful Feminine Card

by egarcia on August 12, 2014

Hi all,

Today I am featuring a thank you card.  I pulled out some of my older Gina K. stamps I hadn’t played with in a while.

I combined papers from my stash for the background and the stitched mat behind the pretty basket full of flowers.  I used the Lil Inker Rectangle Stitched dies for that piece.

IMG_2123

For the focal image I used Gina K.’s Holiday Baskets stamp set.  I stamped the basket and the flowers separately onto white card stock.  I then colored them in with copics and fuzzy cut each piece and then placed them together onto the card.  For the sentiment I stamped it onto a strip of white card stock and cut out the flag ends with my scissors.  I added the pink rhinestones from my stash as a finishing touch and that was it.

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

All You Need is Ice Cream Card

by egarcia on August 7, 2014

Hi all,

Today I have another card made using the Simon Says Stamp August 2014 kit.

IMG_2101Pretty much everything I used was from the kit.  The papers are from the Bo Bunny Lemonade Stand 6×6 pad.

IMG_2102The popsicle and the sentiment come from the stamp set included in the kit, called Ice Cream Dream.  I stamped the popsicle onto the water color paper and used the distress markers also included in the kit.  I used glossy accents to make it nice and shiny. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for the sentiment.  Finally I added some sequence from my stash.

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

Hi all,

Today I have a fun card I created using Simon Says Stamp August 2014 kit.

IMG_2092I just love the stamp set included in this kit called Ice Cream Dream.  The patterned papers come from Bo Bunny’s Lemonade Stand 6×6 paper pad, which is included in the kit.

IMG_2095For the focal image I stamped the ice cream onto the water color paper included in the kit.  The kit comes with two distress markers, but I wanted to use different colors so I used my own distress inks and markers in Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo.  I then fuzzy cut it out and foam taped it to the card.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black for the sentiment.

IMG_2097Finally I had this lime green polka dot ribbon in my stash which I thought went perfectly with that background paper, so I created a bow and attached that to the card with some glue dots.

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