We all Scream for Ice Cream Card

by egarcia on July 26, 2016

Hi all,

We are having a scorcher of a day today and all I can think about is having some cool refreshing treat, so with that I give you today’s card.

I Scream for Ice Cream Card

As hot as it is today I could eat all three of these popsicles.  The images and sentiment are from the Ice Cream Dream stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I paper pieced the one on the left.  The two on the right I stamped and colored in with copics.  The sentiment is stamped with black ink.  The patterned papers are from the #Summer paper pad by American Crafts.

The final touch was adding some Wink of Stella to the popsicles.  Don’t they look cool and refreshing?

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

Hi all,

Did you know July is National Ice Cream Month?  Well it is and to celebrate here’s an ice cream card for you.

Ice Cream CardI started out with patterned papers from the Lemonade Stand Collection from Bo Bunny, which itself has a cute assortment of ice creams on it.

For the focal I used the Ice Cream Dream stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I stamped the ice creams and colored them in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the ice cream.  The sentiments come from the same set.  The larger sentiment was stamped in black and the happy birthday I stamped in coordinating pink ink.  I used Lawn Fawn Rectangle Stitched dies to cut the panel.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by, now go have an ice cream!

Sea You Soon Card

by egarcia on July 14, 2016

Hi all,

I have a fun ocean scene featuring the recently released Lawn Fawn mermaids stamps.  So so cute.

Sea You Soon Card

I created the background ocean and sandy bottom using distress inks on white card stock.  I used a white gel pen and a clear stardust pen to add texture to the sand.

For the images I combined stamps from the Critters in the Sea and the new Mermaid For You stamp set. I stamped the line art images and colored those in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and used the coordinating die-cuts to cut most of them out.  The solid images like the coral and seaweed were stamped with different color inks.

I stamped the sentiment with black ink and added Wink of Stella to the mermaid and glossy accents to the bubbles.

I had so much fun creating this scene.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Flamin-go Together Card

by egarcia on July 12, 2016

Hi all,

I’m finally back from my California vacation.  It was a full two weeks of driving all over the state, checking out colleges with my daughter, and having all sorts of fun.  It’s a bit of a culture shock returning to New England, but I’m getting readjusted to the humidity and to actually having rain.  In the spirit of summer fun I have a fun card for you today featuring some of Lawn Fawn’s summer goodies.

Flaming-go Together CardI started out by stamping the Fishscales background stamp from Impression Obsession onto the pink card stock with Versamark ink to create that tone on tone look.

For the focal area I used Lawn Fawn’s stitched rectangle dies to die-cut the white card stock, the kraft card stock, and the patterned paper.  I tore the edges of the pattern paper to simulate waves crashing onto the shore.  I used the hillsides border die to cut out the kraft piece to create a little island and used copics and a Sakura clear glitter pen to create the sand on it.  I then stamped the flamingos from Lawn Fawn’s Flamin-go Together set, colored those with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers and die-cut those out.  Then I stamped the palm tree pieces and die-cut those out as well.  Finally I finished the scene using distress inks to create the sky and sun.  Then added some Wink of Stella onto their beaks and stamped the sentiment with black ink.  Lots of steps in creating this card, but I love how it turned out.

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

Birthday Sailboat Card

by egarcia on June 16, 2016

Hi all,

Today I have a summer masculine birthday card to share.  I’ll be heading out to California next week on vacation so I’m definitely in the summer mood.  I’ll be gone for a couple of weeks so I won’t be posting then.  Sailboat Birthday CardI started out with papers from my stash.  These papers were left over from a Hunkydory kit which typically come with nice thick patterned card stock papers with either gold or silver foiling.  The foil look is very in right now, but for those of us that haven’t gotten into all the foiling techniques yet, using foiled patterned papers is a great way to get the look without all of the work.

For the focal I cut out a tag using my Tag You’re It dies from Lawn Fawn out of Neenah Solar White card stock.  I then used Simon Says Stamp Sailing stamp set to stamp the sail boat, the waves, and the clouds.  I used copics to color in the boat and some distress ink to color in the waves.   I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Days sentiment set from Clearly Besotted with black ink.  Finally I added some twine to the top of the tag for that nice finishing touch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you in a couple of weeks!
