Thank You Teacher Card

by egarcia on May 17, 2016

Hi all,

I have another teacher card for you this week, using some newer Reverse Confetti stamps and dies.

Thank You Teacher CardI used papers from Lawn Fawn’s Dewey Decimal collection.  The apple was creating using the All Apples die set from Reverse Confetti.  I inked the edges a bit and drew in some stems on the leaves.  The sentiment comes from my trusty Hero Arts Essential Messages set.  I’ve had this set for years and I always return to it.  The sentiments and fonts on these are just classic and work so well for so many cards. This is my first time using Reverse Confetti products and I have to say I had a lot of fun using these.

A+ Teacher Card

by egarcia on May 12, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a teacher appreciation card, a perfect way to show your gratitude for a great school year to your favorite teacher.

A+ Teacher CardI started out with some Neenah Solar White card stock for the base of the card.  The patterned papers are from my leftover stash of Lawn Fawn’s Dewey Decimal collection.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Tag You’re it die to cut out the tag.  I then stamped the image and sentiment from the Falling For You Gina K. Design’s stamp set.  I used my copics to color in the image.  The final touch was the red and white twine.

Graduation Card

by egarcia on May 10, 2016

Hi all,

I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day.  I had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend with family and friends.  It’s hard to believe there’s only about a month left to the school year, yikes!  And very soon there will lots of new graduates celebrating their hard work.  So today I have a graduation card, perfect for those college graduates especially.

Graduation CardI dug into my stash of leftover papers and older stamp sets to create this card.  I love the color combo with those patterned papers from Lawn Fawn’s Dewey Decimal collection.  For the image and sentiments I used an older stamp set from My Favorite Things, Inspired by Knowledge.  I added the copper brad to embellish the graduation cap.  The label shape was created using my Designer Labels 4 dies from My Favorite Things, also an older die set.  It’s nice to brush up some of the oldies from your stash and still be able to create a nice new card.

Here’s a close up of the focal image.  I also inked the edges of the label a bit with some brown ink.   Finally I used some foam tape to adhere the focal to the card for some dimension.

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

Mom Owls Card

by egarcia on May 5, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a fun card for Mom using a combo of different goodies both old and new.

Mom Owl CardI wanted to use my Lil Hoot stamp set from Hero Arts, which is more of a kids stamp set, not technically intended for Mother’s day.  But I thought if I could embellish the grown up owl’s head with a rhinestone heart then I could make it a mommy owl and thus perfect for a Mom card.  I stamped the image and colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Brush pens.  They are so super easy to color with.  Then I fuzzy cut the image out and added it to the lined patterned paper.  I used my Spellbinders dies to create the circles matting the image.  For sentiments I used the new Scripty Mom die from Lawn Fawn and an older Hero Arts Happy Greetings set for the “happy mom’s day” sentiment.  The combo of new and old goodie worked perfectly for this adorable Mother’s Day card.

Mom Sentiment Card

by egarcia on May 3, 2016

Hi all,

Mother’s Day is this weekend, so I’ll be sharing the last of the Mother’s day cards for this season this week.

Mom Sentiment CardThis card is full of treasures from my stash, those last bits of patterned paper and embellishments that have been waiting for just the right project.  The beautiful patterned papers were simply inked around the edges to add to the vintage feel of this card.  The heartfelt sentiments come from WPlus9 Strictly Sentiments 4 stamp set.  Those two lines dividing the sentiment is actually a stem from the Scribble Roses stamp set from My Favorite Things, which just gives you an idea of how to look at your stamps in a different way.  Finally, those cute pearl flowers were added to embellish the card.  These have been in my stash for a while.  I’ve pulled them out before to use on other projects but they never looked quite right on any of those other projects.  This was clearly the right card for them.
