Speedy Recovery Card

by egarcia on February 15, 2018

Hi all,

As I mentioned last time I’ve been working on my Get Well inventory and also trying to use up some of my old stash of paper, so I have another cute Get Well card to share with you today.

I started out with some Warm Cocoa card stock for the card base from Gina K. Designs. All of the patterned paper is from my stash, the last bits and pieces of a 6×6 pad.

For the focal I used the adorable turtle image from Lawn Fawn’s On the Mend Stamp set.  It’s a much older stamp set, but it’s one of my favorites especially for Get Well cards.  I used my copics to color the image and used the coordinating die to cut it out.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Black Onyx ink and comes from that same Lawn Fawn stamp set. I embellished the card with Nuvo drops which coordinated really well with the pinkish-reddish patterned paper.

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

Are You Cured Yet Card

by egarcia on February 8, 2018

Hi all,

So there are two things I’ve been working on this past week.  One is trying to finish up some of my older 6×6 pads.  You know how we are, if there’s just a couple of sheets of paper left or a few scraps, we can’t bear to part with it.  This means that I have lots of 6×6 pads with just a few sheets left in them.  I’m determined to use these up this year.  The second thing is filling in some gaps in my card inventory.  I’m pretty low on get well and sympathy cards right now.  Hence, the get well cards I have to share with you today.

I started out with Warm Cocoa card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base and to mat the different panels on the card.  The patterned paper, as I mentioned, is from my stash.  I love the bright cheerful colors, perfect for a get well card I thought.

For the focal I used the adorable little pig image and sentiment from My Favorite Thing’s The Whole Herd stamp set.  I colored him in with my copics, then die-cut the image with the coordinating dies.  I used my comics to color a bit of mud beneath him. I added some Lawn Fawn twine to the bottom of the panel and called this one  done.

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

Dog Valentine Card

by egarcia on February 6, 2018

Hi all,

Valentine’s Day is coming soon!  Today I have a cute dog themed Valentine’s card.

Out of all of the dog images in the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp set, this image is my favorite.  Why?  Because he kind of looks like my labradoodle. I started out with Gina K.’s Red Velvet card stock for the card base.  I think I used card stock for most of my Valentine cards this year.

I used patterned papers from my stash. The images were stamped and colored in with copies.  I then fuzzy cut the dog image and die-cut the heart image.  I added a bit of shimmer on the heart.  The sentiment comes from the Crazy Talk stamp set.  I love that there is a set of sentiments that coordinates so well with the Crazy Dogs stamp set.

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

Dino-mite Kids Valentine Cards

by egarcia on February 1, 2018

Hi all,

I have another great set of Valentine’s cards for your kids to share with friends.

I started out with Fresh Asparagus card stock from Gina K. Designs as at the base of these mini flat cards.

The dinosaur image and sentiment come from an older Taylored Expressions stamp set called Kid at Heart.  I love it because it’s a nice solid image on a rubber stamp, so when stamped the images come out nice and clear.  You can see those little hearts very clearly in the middle of that solid image.

For the back I used my trusty Winter Gifts stamp set from Lawn Fawn to stamp the “to” and “from” with black ink.

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

You’re My Cup of Tea

by egarcia on January 30, 2018

Hi all,

Today I have another cute Valentine card to share with you.

I created this card without any stamping at all.  I wanted to create a card with that adorable teacup cut out as the focal.  I used an older sketch which I got from Kirstie Marcotte’s blog.  I’m a fan of her card tutorials and love how she transforms sketches into cards.

This is the sketch I started out with.  I used Red Velvet card stock from Gina K. Designs.  The patterned papers and the teacup cut out come from the Be Mine collection by Pebbles from a while back.  The final touches were the glittery enamel dots.

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