Valentine Spoon Card

by egarcia on February 4, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have another Valentine’s Card using the Valentine Spoon set again from Simon Says Stamp.

Valentine's Spoon CardAnother cute image in that stamp set are these spoons and the coordinating spoon sentiments are also so adorable.  I stamped the spoons with red ink onto white card stock and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them out.  I stamped the sentiment using both black and red ink.  I put it all onto a panel of white card stock die-cut with the stitched rectangle dies from Lil ‘Inker, and just like that I had a fun clean and simple Valentine’s Day card.

I like-like you Valentine’s Day Card

by egarcia on February 2, 2016

Hi all,

I have a Valentine’s Day card for you today given that Valentine’s Day is just a couple of weeks away.

I like-like you Valentine's Day CardLast year I’d gotten the Valentine Spoons set from Simon Says Stamp but didn’t get a chance to play with it in time for Valentine’s Day.  This year I really wanted to play with it, especially with that fun heart.  I pulled some patterned papers from my stash.  Then I stamped the tingly heart onto white card stock and die-cut it.  The sentiments are also part of the set.  The “i like-like you” sentiment is so unique and fun.  I stamped it with black ink and white embossed the Happy Valentine’s Day.

Scrapbook Sunday: To Lela’s House

by egarcia on January 31, 2016

Hi all,

Welcome to another Scrapbook Sunday where I share a recently made scrapbook page.  Today’s page features photos of my daughter when she was around 4 years old getting herself ready to go visit her grandmother or “Lela” has she calls her.

Scrapbook Sunday: To Lela's House

Those beautiful papers come from the September 2014 Personal Shopper Scrapbooking Kit from Paperwishes.  With such a beautiful background it’s easy to create a very pretty page.

For embellishments I went into my stash of dazzles.  These are from an older floral set.  I backed these with some of the patterned paper from the same collection.

Page titles are always the most difficult for me to figure out.  For this one I used the Designer Labels 4 set from My Favorite Things.  This is also an older set of dies.  I hand wrote the title.  I’m not that crazy about my handwriting but if I can’t find the right size letters in my stash to use then I resort to my own handwriting.  I added a couple more floral dazzles and was done.

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

Winter Thanks Card

by egarcia on January 28, 2016

Hi all,

I’ve been watching Nichol Magourik’s videos recently where she’s been doing a lot of background techniques with distress inks and it’s made me want to play with distress inks too.  I had my chance to do so creating the background for today’s card using the stamp set included in the January kit from Simon Says Stamp.

Winter Thanks Card

I started out with some Neenah solar white card stock and the Cute Snowflakes stamp set from Simon Says stamp.  I used versamark ink to stamp the snowflakes all over the card stock and white embossing powder.  Then I used Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, and Tumbled Glass distress inks and a foam applicator to color over the embossed snowflakes.  I love how they magically appear when you go over the paper with the ink.

For the sentiment I used the Hand Lettered Winter Wishes stamp set also from Simon Says Stamp and the Stargazer ink from Mama Elephant.  I added the doodlebug enamel dots for some embellishing and the card was done.

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

Lawnscaping Challenge #122: Watercoloring

by egarcia on January 26, 2016

Hi all,

Today I’m joining the Lawnscaping challenge again.  This time their theme is water coloring.  I used an oldie but a goodie Lawn Fawn stamp to create a thank you card.

Lawnscaping Challenge #122: WatercoloringI just love how this turned out.  I started with Neenah solar white card stock and some patterned paper from my stash.  Then I stamped the flower and leaves from the Flutter by set onto watercolor paper with Versafine black ink.  My water color medium were distress markers.  I haven’t used these in a very long time.  It was fun to bring them out and play.

For the sentiment I used the “thank you” from Our Friendship Grows stamp set.  It looked a little lonely, so I added the “so much” from Simon Says Stamp’s Winter Wishes stamp set. I used my Lil ‘Inker dies to cut out the stitched panel and that was it.

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