Hello Acorn Card

by egarcia on August 23, 2016

Hi all,

The school year is about to start in our neck of the woods and it has already started in other parts of the country.  The return to school to me means that Fall is just around the corner, my favorite season!  So today I have the first of what I’m sure will be a number of Fall cards coming in the next few weeks.

Hello Acorn Card

Say hello to Fall with this cute card.  I started out with Orange Fizz card stock from My Favorite Things for the card base.  That fun patterned paper comes from Doodlebug Happy Harvest 6×6 pad.

For the focal area I used Lawn Fawn Into the Woods stamp set.  I stamped the acorn and colored him in with my copics.  I then used my nestabilities dies to cut out the circles.  The sentiment was stamped with brown ink onto the white strip of card stock and matted with red card stock and that was it.

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

Mermaid Unicorn Card

by egarcia on August 18, 2016

Hi all,

This week I received a custom order request for a card that included both a mermaid and a unicorn.  So I figured why not have the mermaid riding a unicorn.  Here is a sample of what I created.

I stamped and colored in the mermaid from Mermaid For You from Lawn Fawn and the unicorn from Critters Ever After using copic markers.  I used Sakura gel pens to add glitter to the unicorn’s horn.  I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images.  I created a soft blue background using Tumbled Glass distress ink on some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.  I’ve been having a bit of trouble getting my distress inks onto Neenah solar white for some reason.  But they work beautifully on Strathmore Bristol paper.  Finally I used Jessie’s ABC’S and a Clearly Besotted sentiment set to create the custom sentiment.

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

Get Well Floral Card

by egarcia on August 2, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a floral get well card using the same oldie but goodie stamp set from Lawn Fawn I used last time, just to show how you can get so many different looks for different occasions from the same stamp set.

Get Well Floral CardIn this card I used some of the other flowers in the Flutter By stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the flowers, colored them in with copics and then cut them out and clustered them together.  Then I used the Bannerific stamp set to stamp the banner onto the patterned paper and used the sentiment from Gina K. Designs Versatile Verses.  The patterned paper comes from the Old World Travel 6×6 pad by Carta Bella.  I inked the edges a bit and added white enamel dots to finish off the card.

Birthday Yellow Roses Card

by egarcia on July 28, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a pretty floral birthday card to share with you using an oldie but goodie Lawn Fawn set.

Birthday Yellow Roses CardI just love how those yellow roses pop on that teal dotted paper.  The patterned paper comes from the Bold & Bright Double Dots paper pad by Bo Bunny.  The flowers were stamped and colored in with copics and they come from Lawn Fawn’s Flutter By stamp set. The center flower is adhered with foam adhesive to add some dimension. The sentiment comes from the Happy Days set by Clearly Besotted, one of my favorite sentiment sets. I die cut the sentiment strip using a die from the Blueprints 2 die set from My Favorite Things.

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

We all Scream for Ice Cream Card

by egarcia on July 26, 2016

Hi all,

We are having a scorcher of a day today and all I can think about is having some cool refreshing treat, so with that I give you today’s card.

I Scream for Ice Cream Card

As hot as it is today I could eat all three of these popsicles.  The images and sentiment are from the Ice Cream Dream stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I paper pieced the one on the left.  The two on the right I stamped and colored in with copics.  The sentiment is stamped with black ink.  The patterned papers are from the #Summer paper pad by American Crafts.

The final touch was adding some Wink of Stella to the popsicles.  Don’t they look cool and refreshing?

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