Christmas Ornaments Banner Card Set

by egarcia on December 6, 2016

Hi all,

While many people tend to have very large lists of friends and family that they send Christmas cards to each year, making this a daunting chore for some, I only have a handful of people that I send cards to.  So for me, smaller sets of cards are perfect, like this one.

I love the vibrancy of the colors on these cards.  I created six cards for this set starting with that gorgeous flocked background paper from my stash, which adds just a wonderful texture.

The ornaments banner was created using the Christmas Ornament Banner stamp set and coordinating die  from My Favorite Things.  I die-cut the banner first from white card stock and stamped each ornament using red and green inks.  Then I added some shimmer with of course my Wink of Stella marker.  The sentiment was also die-cut using the Wet Paint Holiday dies from Paper Trey ink.

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

Glory to God Christmas Card

by egarcia on December 1, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have this religious Christmas card, for those who prefer a more traditional focus on the reason for the season.

Glory To God Christmas CardI started out with Red Velvet card stock from Gina K. Designs.  The beautiful poinsettia patterned paper is from an older Momenta 6×6 pad of holiday paper from my stash.

The stamped elements come from Papertrey Ink’s Beautiful Blessings: Holiday set.  I stamped both the verse and the sentiment with red ink onto white card stock and matted those with the red velvet card stock.  I added a scalloped edge to the verse panel and embellished it with that pretty red and gold ribbon.

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

Happy Hanukkah Card

by egarcia on November 29, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a Hanukkah card to share with you using a Lawn Fawn oldie but goodie.

Happy Hanukkah Card

I’ve been really wanting to create cards without patterned paper, even though I love patterned paper and its hard to resist. However, whenever I make a card without patterned paper I feel there’s something missing on the background.  So when I created this card I particularly liked how the ink splatters create a nice background for the images. I started out with In the Navy card stock from Gina K. Designs, a beautiful dark blue card stock.

For the images I used Lawn Fawn’s Happy Hanukkah stamp set.  I stamped the menorah multiple times and colored in the candle flames with a yellow topic marker.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto white card stock and backed it with the same kind of card stock.  I then smooshed a bit of blue pigment ink onto my acrylic block, mixed in a bit of water with a brush, and flicked the ink onto the card stock.  It created the perfect splatters and it made the card look less plain to me.  Finally I added some blue enamel dots from my stash.

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

Puppy Gift Card Holder

by egarcia on November 22, 2016

Hi all,

I’ve been playing with Lawn Fawn’s Small Stitched Envelope die which makes great gift card holders, so I thought I’d share one with you today.

Puppy Gift Card HolderI used patterned papers from the Bokeh in the Snow 12 x 12 collection pack. I cut out the stitched envelope shape from the patterned paper, then folded it into the gift card holder.

To decorate it I stamped the puppy from the Critters in the Burbs stamp set, colored him in with copics, and die-cut him with the coordinating dies.  The Santa hat comes from the new Happy Howlidays stamp set.  I stamped it, colored with copics, and die-cut it with its coordinating dies as well.  The sentiment comes from the Winter Gifts stamp set and it’s perfect for gift card holders too, not just tags.

Here’s a look at the other side of the gift card holder.  I just love that decorate edge on the flap and all of the great stitching lines.

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