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!


Rainbow Card

by egarcia on April 25, 2017

Hi all,

We’ve had a number of rainy days in the last few weeks around here.  I keep hoping to see some rainbows but no luck yet.  So why not create one for myself like in this card.

The papers and rainbow sticker come from a St. Patrick’s themed collect, Pot O’ Gold, from Doodlebug Designs.

I used the rainbow stick as the focal.  I brushed some distress ink on the white panel to create a sky background.  The sentiment comes from the Lucky stamp set by My Favorite Things.  I just separated the world “color” from the rest of the sentiment and used a green ink to stamp it.  I finished off the card embellishing with some sequins.

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


Stork Baby Boy Card

by egarcia on April 20, 2017

Hi all,

I have another baby card to share with you today.  This one celebrates the arrival of a baby boy.

For this card I started out with Blue Denim card stock from Gina K. Designs.  It went perfectly with the patterned papers from the Snips & Snails Doodlebug collection.


For the focal I turned to one of my favorite Baby themed stamp sets, the Plus One set from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the image and colored it in with my comics, and then used the coordinating dies to cut it out.  The sentiment also comes from the same set.  I used stitched circle dies to cut out the yellow patterned paper.  It worked as the perfect backdrop for that cute image.  I embellished the card with an enamel heart and that was it!

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


Welcome Baby Elephant Card

by egarcia on April 18, 2017

Hi all,

Tis the season for Baby cards.  I’ve been making lots of baby cards the last few weeks and have some to share in coming posts starting with today’s.

Isn’t that pink elephant just adorable?  I started out with Bubble Gum Pink card stock for the card base.  The adorable patterned paper comes from the Sugar & Spice collection from Doodlebug.

For that elephant image I used the Bitty Baby Blessings set from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the image onto the patterned paper and fussy cut the image out.  The sentiment comes from the Baby stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  The final touch was some coordinating pink and white twine.

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


April Birthday Card

by egarcia on March 30, 2017

Hi all,

Got any April birthdays coming up?  Then this is the card for you.

I started out with those fun spring-y patterned papers from my stash.  I just love that floral patterned one.  I used my Stitched Scalloped border dies from Lawn Fawn to create that nice thin border from coordinating card stock.  To embellish I cut out the flag end shaped piece of patterned paper and added the pink and white twine bow, which adds some texture and dimension.

My favorite part though is that focal sentiment.  This was created using the Birthday Classics: April stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  Such a beautiful sentiment image, makes it so easy to create a great focal for your card.  I stamped it onto the patterned paper and matted it on some white card stock.  Such a special way to personalize a birthday card for those April birthdays.

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