Romantic Valentine Card

by egarcia on January 23, 2018

Hi all,

The last few Valentine’s themed cards have been on the cutesy side, so I figured I should switch things up today and share something more on the romantic vintage-y side.

I started out with the Cranberry Tart card stock from Gina K. Designs.  I love the deep rich red look of this card stock.  The patterned paper is what gives this that romantic vintage-y look, and it comes from the Mon Amour collection by Graphic 45.

For the focal I used the Sentiment Label Strip die from My Favorite Things. I love the stitching detail on this die.  I wanted a good label where I can show case a sentiment and not take too much away from beautiful patterned papers like this one, and this die is definitely great for this.  The sentiment comes from the Happy Days set by Clearly Besotted.

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

Sweet Friend Card

by egarcia on January 19, 2018

Hi all,

I have another card to share with you using Lawn Fawn’s Sweet Friend set.  It’s such a fun one to play with.  This card can be used for Valentine’s Day for a sweetheart or for a friend.

I started out with the fun patterned paper from the Be Mine collection by Pebbles.

I created the focal using Lawn Fawn’s Inside Out Heart Stackables and the Lacy Heart Stackables.  I then stamped and colored in those fun images and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  Then I used blank and red ink to stamp the sentiment.

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

Flantastic Friend Valentine Card

by egarcia on January 17, 2018

Hi all,

I have a fun Valentine’s day card perfect for a friend.

When I saw the new Sweet Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn and saw that it included an image of a flan, well I knew I had to have it.  In case you don’t know what a flan is, it’s a delicious custard-y dessert popular among Puerto Ricans and Cubans.  This link will teach you the basics about it.  For today’s card I started out with Red Velvet card stock for the base from Gina K.  The patterned papers come from the Be Mine 6×6 pad collection by Pebbles.

For the focal area I created the two hearts with two new die sets from Lawn Fawn, the Lacy Heart stackable and the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables.  Together these two make wonderful Valentine hearts.  The flan image was stamped and colored in with copics.  I added some glossy accents to the caramel part of the flan.  I loved adding the cute face and arms and legs to the image.  The sentiment was stamped with a combo of black and red inks.  The stamped hearts are the finishing touch to the sentiment.  Of course I had to add a bit of shimmer to those as well.

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

Flurries of Love Card

by egarcia on January 12, 2018

Hi all,

Today I’m combining winter and love themes together, the two themes of this time of year, into a cute card.

Isn’t that little penguin adorable.  I started out with Audrey Blue card stock from Simon Says Stamp for the card base.  The patterned paper, penguin and snowflake stickers, came from the Polar Pals collection.

For the focal I grounded the little penguin with the blue patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment with purple ink.  The sentiment comes from the Cute Snowflakes stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  The finishing touches were adding some stitched lines to the card stock with my white gel pen and some shimmery white enamel dots.

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

Winter Wishes Card

by egarcia on January 9, 2018

Hi all,

I hope the start of your 2018 has been a good one.  I spent the first week sick, yuck!  I’m so glad to finally be able to get the blog year started.  I also survived the bombogenesis mother of all snow storms and frigid temperatures we had here in New England last week.  So clearly a winter card is in order.

I love how cozy that snowman looks in his hat and scarf, don’t you?  The cute coordinating patterned paper comes from an older Doodlebug collection called Polar Pals.  I added a scalloped edged strip of card stock next to the patterned paper.

For the focal I used the Snowman from Lawn Fawn’s Making Frosty Friends.  It’s a pretty old set, but those snowmen images are timeless.  I also love the hat and scarf images included in the set, which are the perfect size for paper piecing which is what I did here.  The great big sentiment comes from the Hand Lettered Winter Wishes set from Simon Says Stamp.  I think the two sets pair pretty well together.

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