Thank You Mini Cards

by egarcia on February 25, 2015

Hi all,

Today I have a set of mini Thank you cards that can be used for so many occasions.  You could send them after a birthday, a baby shower, or any other occasion where you’ve received a number of gifts, to send to all of those wonderful folks who thought of you on your special day.  Or if you are someone who sells products online, you can use these thank you notes to include as part of your packaging. Just a few ideas, of many more I’m sure, of how you could use these mini thank you cards.

I started out with a 6×3 in. sheet of white card stock, which I scored at 3 inches.  I then stamped the beautiful butterfly image from the Antique Engravings stamp set from Hero Arts.  This one has been out for quite a while, but I always turn to it for this kind of a project.

il_570xN.709884303_o4yaThe “Thank you” sentiment comes from the Thank You Duo stamp set by Gina K. Designs. I repeated the process 6 times to create a lovely little set of cards.

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

Winter Birds Birthday Card

by egarcia on February 18, 2015

Hi all,

Winter is still hitting us hard here in New England and while each bitterly cold day gives me little reason to celebrate, my Facebook feed reminds me that there are many people who have many reasons to celebrate this winter season.  Such as those that have winter birthdays for instance!  So to all those winter birthday babies, here’s a little winter birthday card for ya.

il_570xN.725845571_4gh4I love the simplicity of this card.  The patterned papers come from my stash of winter and holiday papers actually.  For the focal area I stamped the two little birds from Making Frosty Friends stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  I colored the birds in with my copics and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from Bake Me a Cake stamp set, also by Lawn Fawn, between the two little birds.

il_570xN.725845637_96j7Here’s a closer look at those cute little birds.  Don’t they look all bundled up with their scarfs?  The final touch was creating the scalloped border with my Fiskars border punch.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Stay warm and thanks so much for stopping by!

You Are Loved SSS February Kit

by egarcia on February 13, 2015

Hi all,

I have another love themed card for you today created with the February 2015 SSS kit.

IMG_3249I used the card stock and patterned paper from the kit.  The kit includes a sheet of vintage paper. I tore the edges of the paper and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, which allowed me to create those curled edges.

IMG_3254The most fun part was creating that focal.  The kit included a piece of sticky back canvas, which I’d never used before.  I used the gold metallic gelato from the kit and rubbed some of it on the edges. The You are Loved, arrow, and hearts are all part of the rub on sheet that comes in the kit.  I rubbed those onto the canvas.  I wasn’t sure if rub ons would work on canvas, but I was so happy to discover that they do.  I wanted to add a bit of color to the hearts so I used some Siren Smooch ink to color those in.  It gave the perfect color and shine.  This card is now ready to send to any loved one for either Valentine’s day, anniversaries, or any occasion you want to send some love.

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

Happy Anniversary SSS February 2015 Kit

by egarcia on February 11, 2015

Hi all,

Keeping to the love theme of the week, since Valentine’s Day, is almost upon us, today’s card is an anniversary card I created using the February 2015 Simon Says Stamp kit.

IMG_3078I kept it pretty simple using papers and card stock from the kit. The fun part of the card was creating that focal.

IMG_3083I used the gelato included in the kit, which I have never used before, to color the water color piece of card stock.  I spread some of the gelato and used a wet water brush to get it moving around the card stock.  The wreath and heart are from the rub-ons that were included in the kit.  I hadn’t played with rub-ons in a very long time and didn’t even think they really made them any more, but this Kiss Kiss collection from Crate Paper were great.  I didn’t want to create another Valentine’s Day card, since I’d been making so many during the last few weeks.  Instead I pulled the Happy stamp set from Simon Says stamp to stamp the “happy anniversary” sentiment.

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

Foxy Valentine Card

by egarcia on February 6, 2015

Hi all,

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. I have one Valentine’s card for you today.

il_570xN.709744308_lfiiI combined patterned papers from my stash to create the background.  For the focal I used the image and sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest.

il_570xN.709744390_jy37I stamped the fox on white card stock, colored her in with my copic markers, and cut the image out with scissors.  I die-cut the two little red hearts from card stock and stamped the sentiment with black ink.  Finally I added the ribbon for some extra texture.

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