Hello Pumpkin Card

by egarcia on September 29, 2016

Hi all,

Today’s card gives you cute and less spooky way to express Halloween wishes, using one of my new favorite Halloween stamp sets from My Favorite Things.

Hello Pumpkin Card

If you like Halloween images but don’t want a specific Halloween sentiment then this is a great alternative.  I must admit I bought this stamp set because of this “hello, pumpkin” sentiment.  It’s so cute.  And when you pair it with that adorable pumpkin it’s the perfect non-spooky card.  I started out with Warm Cocoa card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base.  The patterned paper comes from my stash of fall themed papers.  The image and sentiment come from MFT’s Spooky Sweets stamp set.  The cool thing is that the pumpkins are solid images and the faces are separate.  There are a variety of faces that you can use for your pumpkins and different designs of pumpkins too.  I embellished with some coordinating enamel dots and was done.

Here’s a close up of that focal area.  That pumpkin just makes me smile every time I look at it.

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

Thankful Apples Card

by egarcia on September 27, 2016

Hi all,

We did our apple picking last week.  Due to the drought in our area the apples were tiny compared to years past, but many were still delicious.  It’s starting to make me wonder though about Christmas trees and how those will look in late November.  Keeping my fingers crossed for more rain.  So for today I thought I’d share this thankful apples card.

Thankful apples cardFor this card I pulled some oldies from my stash.  That gorgeous paper is from Gina K. Design’s Grateful Heart paper pack.  I got this 6×6 paper pack last year and still have some left. For the stamp set I used an older set from My Favorite Things called Inspired by Autumn.  It’s such a pretty image.  I used my copics to color it in.  The final touch were some enamel dots in coordinating colors.  The card base is also from Gina K., dark chocolate card stock.  And I used my stitched rectangles dies from Lawn Fawn to cut the white panel.  I just put in a new order for a variety of Gina K. card stock, stocking up to get ready soon to make projects for the holidays.

Just for You Fall Card

by egarcia on September 22, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a card with no stamping on it.  Gasp! I know right.  All of the products I used come from an Artful Card Kit by Paper Wishes, which includes papers, die-cuts, and cut outs.  I love these kits because they have all coordinating products but you still come up with your own designs.

Just For You Fall CardDon’t you just love all of those gorgeous fall colors?  The goodies I used come from the Cider Artful Card kit.  The mason jars, fence, and large label are die-cuts which I arranged into the layout  you see.  I embellished the jars with the die-cut scalloped button and the little die-cut heart.  I added some twine for additional texture to the scalloped die-cut button.  The card base is Neenah Solar White cardstock which isn’t included in the kit, nor was the twine included.

Here’s a closer look at those mason jars.  The artwork in this kit is just gorgeous.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Mini Halloween Cards

by egarcia on September 20, 2016

Hi all,

Today we are going mini sized with our cards for Halloween.  Here’s a set of cute mini Halloween cards.

Mini Halloween CardsEverything looks better in miniature size doesn’t it?  I started out with white card stock and used pattered paper from my stash for the background.  I love that web patterned paper.  So what better focal image to use than a little spider.

For the focal I used an older Papertrey Ink set called Halloween Tags 2009.  The image is the circle with the web and the cute little spider.  Then I stepped the sentiment from the same stamp set, which fits perfectly into that space.  I used my Spellbinders dies to cut out the circle and the black scalloped circle from black card stock and these cuties were done.

These mini cards can be used in so many fun ways.  They can be used for Halloween treat bags, or for kids to give to their friends at school, or just to write a little Halloween wishes note to your Halloween loving friend or family member.  Whatever way you choose to use them they are the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit.

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

Falling For You Owl Card

by egarcia on September 15, 2016

Hi all,

I have a fun fall card for you today.

Falling For You Owl Card

I combined a whole variety of Lawn Fawn goodies for this one.  I used the owl from Critters in the Forest and the trees and leaves from Sweater Weather for the images on the scene.  I used copics for the owl and a variety of inks from my stash for the trees and leaves.  For the background part of the scene I used the Forest Border die with some fall themed patterned paper to make all the trees look like fall trees.  I then used the Stitched Rectangle dies and the Stitched Hillside Border dies to create the hill and the whole panel.  I love the sentiment “Falling for You” which I stamped onto the patterned paper that is kind of serving as the sky.  It’s a fun sentiment that captures the theme of Fall but can also be used for a love card.

Here’s a closer at some of those images.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
