Hi all,

I have another Mother’s Day card for you today.  Silhouette Mother's Day CardThe yellow dot patterned paper and the silhouette image comes from the Authentique Classique Beauty collection.  I embellished the silhouette with some clear rhinestones.  The sentiment comes from the Happy Days sentiment set from Clearly Besotted.

Mother’s Day Purple Flowers Card

by egarcia on April 19, 2016

Hi all,

I have another Mother’s Day card for you today featuring goodies from My Favorite Things.

Mother's Day Purple Flowers Card

I started with some Neenah Dessert Storm card stock for the card base.  The vase and flowers were created using the Beautiful Blooms stamps and dies from My Favorite Things.  I stamped the flowers and leaves onto white card stock and die-cut them.  I then used purple enamel dots to decorate the centers and the corner of the card.  I grounded the images using some patterned papers from my stash.  The sentiment comes from the Sweet Roses stamp set also by My Favorite Things.

Mother’s Day Yellow Flowers Card

by egarcia on April 14, 2016

Hi all,

I have another Mother’s Day to share with you today featuring a favorite technique, paper piecing.

Mother's Day Yellow Flowers CardColoring your stamped images is all the rage right now, especially with there being so many different mediums to color with, such as copics, zig clear color brush pens, prima pencils, or the many multiple water colors that are now out there.  But sometimes the best technique to use is an oldie but goodie, like paper piecing, like I did in this card.  I started out with some Neenah Solar White card stock.  I used my Corner Chomper to curve the two bottom corners.  I added a strip of patterned paper on which I used the Fiskars border punch to create the scallops.

The flowers come from the Sweet Roses stamp set from My Favorite Things.  This is a great way to use your scraps of paper.  I just stamped the images onto the yellow and green patterned papers and fussy cut them out.  I created the stems by just free hand cutting two strips of green patterned paper.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink and also comes in the same stamp set.

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

Mother’s Day Sentiment Card

by egarcia on April 12, 2016

Hi all,

Today I’m sharing a Mother’s Day card where the sentiment is the main focal of the card.

Mother's Day Sentiment CardI started out with a Dark Chocolate card stock from Gina K. Designs.  Her card stocks are great, nice and thick and in beautiful colors.  The patterned papers are oldies from my stash.  I just love the beautiful subtle yet elegant pattern on this paper.

The star of this card is the focal area which features a beautiful sentiment from the Strictly Sentiments 4 stamp set from WPlus9.  Beautiful sentiments in this stamp set for both the inside and the outside of your card.  Here I stamped the sentiment with brown ink onto the cream card stock which I then inked a bit with Antique Linen distress ink.  To embellish the sentiment I added the fancy border and the enamel accents.  What I love about this card is that it shows that the sentiment can be the star of your card.

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

Mom You’re the Best

by egarcia on April 5, 2016

Hi all,

I’ve been playing with Mother’s Day cards this past week and I have one to share with you today.

Mom You're the Best What I like about this card is that it can definitely work for Mother’s Day, but you could use it any time you want to tell Mom just how great she is, not just on Mother’s Day. I started out with patterned paper from my stash.  I’ve been trying to challenge myself to use up some of my older paper pads by taking one at a time and trying to make all of my cards out of that one pad until I use up all the paper.  I can’t say I’ve been a hundred percent successful, but I am getting through more of my stash.

For the focal I used the Lil Hoot stamp set from Hero Arts.  I stamped the bears, colored them in with copics and fuzzy cut them out.  The sentiment comes from the Love Mom stamp set by WPlus9.  It’s such a great little set of sentiments perfect for Mother’s Day. I stamped the Mom right onto the patterned paper and the “you’re the best” onto a separate strip of paper.  I cut out the flag end and inked all the edges.  The final touch was adding a little flower rhinestone embellishment to the mommy bear’s head just to make it clear it’s a Mommy.

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