Happy Fall Tree Card

by egarcia on August 22, 2017

Hi all,

I have another Fall themed card to share with you today. This card is another one where I used goodies from my stash.  The background was created by using two different but coordinating strips of beautiful patterned paper that I had left in my stash from an older set of patterned papers from Gina K. Designs called Grateful heart.

For the focal I used images from the Sun-kissed Autumn stamp set also from Gina K. Designs.  I added some gloss to the apples on the tree.  The sentiment comes from the 2009 Autumn Tags set from Papertrey Ink, another older stamp set.  It’s great to combine older stamp sets together to create a whole new project.  Finally, I cut the panel using my stitched rectangle dies.

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

Happy Fall Owl

by egarcia on August 17, 2017

Hi all,

For today’s card I pulled deep into my stash for some older goodies to make a fresh new card.

Doesn’t that cute owl just get you into the fall spirit?  I started out with some kraft card stock for the card base.  I find kraft colored card stock to work really well for fall themed cards.  The patterned paper was a scrap from my stash. When you have such gorgeous paper you have to keep every bit of it and use it all up.

That adorable owl image comes from Gina K. Design’s Sun-Kissed Autumn stamp set.  It’s an older set, but that owl is one of my favorite images.  I have to bring him out every fall.  I used my copics to color him in.  Then I used by stitched circle dies to cut out the panel and matted it with a die-cut brown card stock mat.

The sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather set.  I just love the bold font of this sentiment.  I stamped it with some brown ink.  The leaves come from the same stamp set.  I added a bit of shimmer to those with my Wink of Stella pen.

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

Happy Fall Critters Scene

by egarcia on August 16, 2017

Hi all,

It’s time to start sharing some fall themed projects.  Fall is my absolute favorite season and I just can’t wait to get it started.  I’ve been scouting for fall sightings in home decor stores and craft stores and just love seeing the pop of fall colors again.  Today I have a fun Fall Critters scene using a bunch of different Lawn Fawn products.  The critters and leaves come from the Jump for Joy stamp set.  I used my copics to color them in and the coordinating dies to cut them out.  The tree however comes from an oldie, the Critters in the Burbs set.  It’s one of the first stamp sets that Lawn Fawn put out and I still love it.  I used the Grassy Border die to cut out the grass from the patterned paper.

The sentiment comes from the Sweater Weather stamp set.  You can see a hint of clouds on the background.  For that I used the one non-Lawn Fawn item, the Mini Cloud stencil from MFT Stamps and I just love how easy it is to create clouds with this stencil.

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

Multiple Bikinis Card

by egarcia on August 10, 2017

Hi all,

Here’s the last of the summer cards for this year.  I loved the sentiment I used on this card when I saw it on the stamp set it comes from and I just had to create a card for it.

I started out with that fun and colorful patterned paper from the Summer Dreams collection from Echo Park.

I used my stitched rectangle dies to die-cut the rectangle panel.  Then I stamped the three bikinis and colored them in with my copics.  The images and funny sentiment come from the Sea You Soon stamp set by Simon Says stamp.

The final touch was adding some Wink of Stella because of course you need your bikinis to be shimmery and shiny!

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  All summer themed cards are now on sale at the Doodleshop, 15% off. Click here to find out more.

Summer Hello Bikini Card

by egarcia on August 8, 2017

Hi all,

I just returned from 10 wonderful vacations days in Colorado, which is why it’s been kind of quiet here on the blog.  But I am now rested and rejuvenated and ready to get back to some crafting.  As the summer weeks begin to wind down I thought I’d share the last of the summer cards this week before starting to share Fall projects.

It’s not too late to send a summer Hello.  This card began with that gorgeous sun ray patterned paper from the Summer Dreams collection from Echo Park.

For the focal area I used the bikini die from Simon Says Stamp and cut out the bikini from patterned paper.  The sentiment comes from the Sea You Soon stamp set also from Simon Says Stamp.  The finishing touch was some clear confetti.

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