Simon Says December 2014 Kit Anniversary Card

by egarcia on December 18, 2014

Hi all,

Sorry it’s been a bit quiet on the blog this week, but between holiday shopping and getting ready for our holiday vacation trip this weekend, its been pretty busy.  I finally was able to play a bit with the December Simon Says Stamp kit.  I had a co-worker request a custom anniversary card.  I created a couple of cards for her to choose from.  This was one of the samples.

 

IMG_2441I used the paper, card stock, and embossing powder, and the Sparkle and Shine stamp set that comes in the kit.  The sentiment however, I used the Happy stamp set, also from Simon Says stamp.  I just love how the embossing turned out.

IMG_2451Here’s a close up of some of the embossing.  I love how nice and smooth it turned out.

 

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

Happy Holidays Red Tree Card

by egarcia on December 12, 2014

Hi all,

Can you believe Christmas is just two weeks away!?  There’s still time to get your cards ready to send out. Here’s another bit of inspiration for you.

il_570xN.683264806_nwvwI used scraps from the Santa Claus My Minds Eye 6×6 pad for the hill and the snowy background.

 

il_570xN.683264928_96zyI stamped the tree which comes from Impression Obsession’s Five Tree stamp set, with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  I then used my Wink of Stella brush pen to add the sparkle you see there.

 

il_570xN.683383981_3shmFor the sentiment I used the Hero Arts Holiday Sayings stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment onto the strip of pattered paper, matted it, and was done. I don’t know if it’s the color combo, or what, but I just love how this one turned out.

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

Merry Christmas Santa & Mrs. Card

by egarcia on December 10, 2014

Hi all,

Today I have a cute Christmas card for you featuring Santa and the Mrs.

il_570xN.683670399_i4kzThe patterned paper is from the Merry 6×6 pad by My Minds Eye.

il_570xN.683670433_f0vzBut definitely the stars of this show are these two cute images, which come from Mama Elephant’s Cozy Christmas stamp set along with the coordinating dies.  I stamped and colored in each image with copic markers.  What I love about these stamp sets is that it includes the hands separately so that you can make them look like they are holding whatever you place in their hands, like Santa holding the present and Mrs. Claus holding a plate of cookies.

il_570xN.683551504_l1zdFor the sentiment I used the Hero Arts Holiday Sayings Stamp set.

 

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

Oh, Come Let Us Adore Him Card

by egarcia on December 5, 2014

Hi all,

I have a simple holiday card for you today.

il_570xN.683375523_6t55It’s simple, but I just love the monochromatic look of this one.  I started out with some kraft card stock. I then used some brown ink to stamp the images and the sentiment which come from Hero Arts Heavens Rejoice stamp set.

il_570xN.683256422_rg0nFor the star I first stamped it with Simon Says Stamp Khaki ink, which is the lighter color you see there, and then stamped it again with brown ink slightly to the side of the first stamped image. I used my Wink of Stella clear pen to add the shimmer. Finally, I rounded all the corners with my Corner Chomper.

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

Hanukkah Card

by egarcia on December 3, 2014

Hi all,

Today I have a Hanukkah card for you using some Lawn Fawn goodies.

IMG_2149Lawn Fawn has a great little stamp set for making Hanukkah cards called Happy Hanukkah.  It has the menorah, the dreidel, and that great sentiment you see on the card.  I started out with some In the Navy cardstock from Gina K. Designs and patterned paper from the Keepin’ Cozy 6×6 pad from Echo Park.

IMG_2151I stamped the menorah with Memento Luxe Nautical Blue ink.  I just love the richness of this pigment ink.  I colored in the flames with a copic marker and then used by Spellbinder dies to cut out the circle and the scalloped circle mat behind it.

IMG_2152I then stamped the sentiment onto the white card stock strip.  The dreidel was stamped onto white card stock and fuzzy cut out.  And just like that I had a great Hanukkah card.

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