Peeps-filled Hugs Card

by egarcia on March 21, 2017

Hi all,

I’ve been having some fun with peeps.  Not the marshmallow kind, but the stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Here’s my creation for today.

I started out with fun Easter themed papers from my stash.  The peeps are created using the My Kind of Peep stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I just stayed the peeps on the different patterned papers and cut them out.  The sentiment was stamped and the Hugs part was colored in with my comics.  To cut out the panel I used my Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles dies.

Here’s a close up of that focal area.  As a finishing touch I added the twine bow on top.

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

Baby Boy Card FMS #279

by egarcia on March 18, 2017

Hi all,

I have a new baby boy card to share with you today using another Freshly Made Sketch.  I’ve been really enjoying using sketches lately to get my mojo going and this card was no exception.

Here’s the sketch I had to play with.  I really enjoyed the challenge of using those multiple layers, something that doesn’t come naturally to me.

Here’s what I created using the sketch.  The card base uses Blue Denim card stock from Gina K. Designs.  The patterned papers come from the Snips & Snails paper collection by Doodlebug Designs.

For the focal I used one of my favorite baby themed stamp sets, the Plus One set by Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the images onto white card stock, colored in with copics, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I then stamped the sentiment onto the patterned paper.  I really liked the little rattle as an embellishment.

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

Lucky Friend Card

by egarcia on March 7, 2017

Hi all,

In the spirit of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday I’m sharing a somewhat related card going along with the lucky theme usually affiliated with some of the icons of the holiday such as the four leaf clover.  This would make a great friendship card for someone who celebrates St. Patrick’s day or is Irish.

For this card I used patterned papers from the Pot O’ Gold 6×6 pad from Doodlebug designs.  This was last year’s St. Patrick’s Day themed collection, but still got lots of it left.

For the focal I used this lovely sentiment from the Lucky stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I die-cut the panel using my oval Spellbinders nestabilities dies and matted using one of the scalloped ovals dies from Spellbinders as well.  That great scalloped border was created using dies from the Stitched Scalloped Border collection from Lawn Fawn.  The final touch was that little sticker which comes from the Pot O’Gold sticker sheet.

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

FMS 276: Happy Easter

by egarcia on February 26, 2017

Hi all,

I’m posting off from my usual schedule to bring you this card made using a sketch from the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I haven’t participated in a challenge in ages and lately my mojo has been feeling kind of blah.  So I thought I’d participate in a challenge to get the creative juices flowing again.

Here’s the sketch I had to play with.

And here’s the card I created.  I flipped the side of the focal object and sentiment on the sketch, just because I thought the basket looked better on the right side than on the left side.  I used papers from the Springtime collection by Authentique. I got these last year and still have quite a bit of it left to play with this year.  For the sentiment and image I used Lawn Fawn’s Happy Easter and Eggstra Special Easter sets.  I colored my images with my copics and added a bit of Wink of Stella onto the eggs and bow on the basket.

Here’s a closer look at the shimmer on the basket.

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

Dog Birthday Card

by egarcia on February 21, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a fun and bright birthday card featuring Lawn Fawn’s original dog from the Critters in the Forest set.

I had so much fun creating this cute card.  I started out with Gina K. Designs Blue Raspberry card stock which matched the blue on that number patterned paper perfectly.  The patterned paper is from an old collection from my stash.  I swear the patterned paper in my craft room multiplies while I sleep, ’cause no matter how much of it I use it still takes forever to use up a whole 6×6 pad.

For the focal I stamped and die-cut the dog image, one of my favorites from Lawn Fawn, and then I used my comics to color him in.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Grassy Border die to die-cut the grass from the patterned paper.  The party hat comes from the Hats Off To You stamp set, another oldie but goodie.  I stamped and paper pieced the party hat and used my red copic marker to color in the dots.  The sun was die-cut using the Spring Showers dies.  You gotta love the stitched detail on that sun. Finally, the sentiment comes from the Bake Me a Cake  stamp set.  I diet the panel with the stitched rectangles die and this card was done.

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