Birthday Sailboat Card

by egarcia on June 16, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a summer masculine birthday card to share.  I’ll be heading out to California next week on vacation so I’m definitely in the summer mood.  I’ll be gone for a couple of weeks so I won’t be posting then.  Sailboat Birthday CardI started out with papers from my stash.  These papers were left over from a Hunkydory kit which typically come with nice thick patterned card stock papers with either gold or silver foiling.  The foil look is very in right now, but for those of us that haven’t gotten into all the foiling techniques yet, using foiled patterned papers is a great way to get the look without all of the work.

For the focal I cut out a tag using my Tag You’re It dies from Lawn Fawn out of Neenah Solar White card stock.  I then used Simon Says Stamp Sailing stamp set to stamp the sail boat, the waves, and the clouds.  I used copics to color in the boat and some distress ink to color in the waves.   I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Days sentiment set from Clearly Besotted with black ink.  Finally I added some twine to the top of the tag for that nice finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you in a couple of weeks!

Birthday Dolphins Card

by egarcia on June 14, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a fun summery birthday card for you.

Birthday Dolphins CardI used papers from my stash to create the card.  I liked that wave paper.  It was easy just to fuzzy cut along the waves and tuck the dolphins behind.

The dolphins come from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Sea.  I stamped and colored in the dolphins with copics and then fuzzy cut those too with my cutter bee scissors.  The sentiment comes from the Hats Off To You set from Lawn Fawn.

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

Easy Chair Father’s Day Card

by egarcia on June 9, 2016

Hi all,

I have another Father’s Day card for you today, perfect for all of those dad’s and granddad’s who have a favorite chair to lounge in.

 

Easy Chair Father's Day Card

I pulled scraps from my paper stash to create the background and to stamp the chair onto.  The chair image comes from Lawn Fawn’s Dad’s day stamp set.  I stamped the chair with Versamark onto the patterned paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then I used a black Memento marker to color in all the edges of the chair and then used my cuterbee scissors to cut it out.  For the sentiment I used the Happy Days sentiment set from Clearly Besotted.  I stamped it with brown ink onto white card stock, matted it onto brown card stock and die-cut some hearts to embellish the card.

Lighthouse Father’s Day Card

by egarcia on June 7, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have another Father’s Day card for you as the big day is only a couple of weeks away.

Lighthouse Father's Day card

I started with Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock for the base of the card.  I like this type of base for most masculine cards.  I pulled out some oldies from my stash including the patterned paper from the Great Outdoors Paper Pad from Paper House. and the stamp set from Gina K. Designs.

For the focal I used the Guiding Light stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  I stamped the lighthouse image and colored it in with copics.  I stamped the sentiment which goes perfectly with this image from the same stamp set.  I cut out the panel using Lawn Fawn stitched rectangles  dies and inked the edges with distress inks.

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

Classic Dad Card

by egarcia on May 31, 2016

Hi all,

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend.  I spent part of the weekend making father’s day cards including this classic Dad card.

Classic Dad Card

I started out with some Neenah Solar White card stock for the base and created the background with strips of patterned paper from my stash.

For the focal I used the Vintage Cars dazzle stickers from Hot Off the Press and backed it with some patterned papers.  I used some silver smooch ink to color in the windows of the car and the head lights.  I also used the arrow sticker to embellish the focal.  The sentiment comes from the For the Guys stamp set also from Hot Off the Press.  It’s a great stamp set for masculine cards.  To finish it off I added the black enamel dots and used my rectangle stitched dies to cut out the whole piece.

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