Graduation Cap Card

by egarcia on May 25, 2017

Hi all,

My Facebook feed has been full of college students celebrating their graduations.  So to celebrate along with them I have a graduation card for you today.

I started out with papers from my stash.  That notepad patterned paper and t he ruler patterned paper are perfect for a graduation card.

For the focal I used the image and sentiment from an older My Favorite Things stamp set called Inspired By: Knowledge.  To embellish the card I used some coordinating enamel dots.

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

Congrats You Did It Card

by egarcia on May 16, 2017

Hi all,

Graduation season is here, so today I have a clean and simple graduation card.

I started out with the patterned paper from the Teacher’s Pet 6×6 pad by Echo Park.

For the image I used the diploma stamp from an older stamp set from My Favorite Things called Inspired by Knowledge.  The sentiment was created using a die for the “Congrats” and stamping the “you did it!” right onto the patterned paper. Both of these come from Hero Arts Congrats set.

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

Butterfly Mother’s Day Card

by egarcia on May 4, 2017

Hi all,

Do you have a Mom who loves butterflies? Then today’s Mother’s Day card is perfect for her.

This card proves that you can use the same products to get a completely different look.  Today I’m using the same patterned paper and stamp sets I used on Tuesday’s card. But here I’ve created a bit more of a playful looking card.  The patterned papers are from Gina K. Designs Garden Tour 6×6 paper pad.

For the focal I stamped the butterfly from Flutter By and fuzzy cut it out.  I glued only the center of the butterfly to the paper so the wings can be free to flutter.  The sentiment comes from the Mother’s Day stamp from Lawn Fawn as well.  The finishing touch are enamel dots from Doodlebug.

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

Mother’s Day Floral Card

by egarcia on May 2, 2017

Hi all,

Mother’s Day is just around the corner.  To get us into the spirit of the holiday here’s a lovely floral Mother’s Day Card for you.

For this card I pulled some favorites from my stash.  That gorgeous patterned paper comes from Gina K. Designs Garden Tour 6×6 collection.

For the focal I stamped and colored in the flower and leaf from the Flutter By stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  The sentiment comes from the Mother’s Day set also by Lawn Fawn.  I used by dies to cut out the oval shape and inked the edges with some coordinating ink.

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

Hello Spring, Finally

by egarcia on April 27, 2017

Hi all,

Are things blooming yet in your neck of the words?  They finally are here in CT.  It’s so nice to finally begin to see some colors.  Today’s card celebrates the arrival of Spring with a great big Hello.

When you have a beautiful floral paper like the patterned paper on this card, the best way to showcase it is just to add a nice big sentiment.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Hello die to cut out the “hello” from white card stock and from the soft blue patterned paper.  I used the inlay technique to inlay the hello back into the negative space on the paper.  The finishing touches on this card was the scalloped white border created using Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Scalloped Borders die and the enamel hearts.

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