Thank You Puppy Card

by egarcia on September 3, 2014

Hi all,

I hope you had a great Labor Day weekend.  Mine was nice and lazy.  The humidity has returned to our area.  I guess Summer wants to leave with a bang this year.  Today I have a cute Thank You card featuring some Lawn Fawn goodness.

il_570xN.641125348_lzt6I just love how this one turned out.  The patterned papers come from the Fine and Dandy Girl collection by My Mind’s Eye.  Very pretty soft colors in this collection.

il_570xN.641125400_obirFor the focal I used Lawn Fawn Grassy border die to create the grass.  The doggie comes from the Critters in the ‘Burbs stamp set.  This was one of their earliest critter sets and it’s still one of my go to sets.  I used the coordinating dies to cut him out and colored him with my copics.  The Thank You sentiment comes from the Our Friendship Grows set.  I haven’t gotten any of the sets with speech bubbles in them from Lawn Fawn, they’re on my wish list, so for the speech bubble I turned to an older Hero Arts holiday set called Jolly Christmas.

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

Climb a Tree Fall Card

by egarcia on August 29, 2014

Hi all:

I have another Fall themed card for you today.  Fall is my favorite season and I’ve just been having so much fun using some of my Fall stamps from Gina K. Designs.

il_570xN.644367847_oftcFor this card I used some left over pieces from an older Fall kit.  Gina is releasing her new Fall kit tonight.  So make sure to check out StampTV for all the information.  I can’t wait to see all the new stuff.  But in the meantime it’s been great to pull out some of my older stamps and get started on some fall cards.

il_570xN.644255374_52p9For the focal image I used the trees from Sun-Kissed Autumn.  I paper pieced them which is just super easy to do.  I stamped the sentiment with brown ink, added the ribbon from my stash, which coordinated beautifully with the oranges on the patterned paper, and was done.

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

All Occasion Hugs Card

by egarcia on August 27, 2014

Hi all,

With school starting tomorrow in my neck of the woods it certainly feels like fall is just around the corner.  So today I have a fall themed card for you.

il_570xN.644380671_2a9oI went back into my stash for this one and pulled one of my favorite Gina K. Designs stamps.  I started with the Warm Cocoa card stock.  The patterned paper comes from the Happy Harvest 6×6 pad from Doodlebug.  I’ve been making lots of cards with this patterned paper pack and I have to say, it is such a great collection.  It is just so easy to combine the different papers and get some wonderful fall looks.

il_570xN.644380703_rmxyThat owl image is one of my favorites and it comes from the Sun-Kissed Autumn stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  I colored him in with my copic markers and used my nestabilities dies to cut out the circle.  The sentiment is from the same set and was stamped with brown ink right onto that patterned paper.  The final touch was rounding the bottom corners with my Corner Chomper and I was done.

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

Scrapbook Sunday: A Day at the Lake

by egarcia on August 24, 2014

Hi all,

As summer begins to wind down I thought I’d share another Summer themed scrapbook page.

IMG_0107That gorgeous patterned paper includes the lovely boat scene along the bottom of the page.  It was perfect for these photos of my daughter in the lake when she was 4 years old.  Such a cutie.  The papers come from the July 2013 Personal Shopper Scrapbooking Kit from Paper Wishes.  I just love these kits.

IMG_0111For the title I used the jouranling tag that came in the kit and sticker letters from Basic Grey.

IMG_0112This kit came with some great embellishments like that sticker with the lovely quote, which I thought went perfectly with the photos of my daughter exploring in the water.  It also included that great splash ribbon.  The brads come from my big stash of brads that I’ve collected over the years.

IMG_0113The final embellishment touch was the bird wood veneer, also included in the kit.

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

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!
