Autumn Leaves Card

by egarcia on September 12, 2017

Hi all,

I have another Fall card for you today.  I really love how this one turned out.

I started out with that pretty fall leaves patterned paper for the background on some dark chocolate Gina K. Designs card stock.

For the focal area I stamped that beautiful Camus quote onto the orange patterned paper strip with brown ink.  The quote comes from an older MFT stamp set I believe was called Inspired by Autumn.  I added to it the “Happy Fall” sentiment from the 2009 Autumn Tags stamp set from Papetrey. Ink.I die cut the leaves from patterned paper using Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies.  I inked the edges a bit.  I created the scalloped borders using  Lawn Fawn Stitched scalloped borders dies.   The final touch was the button with the twine bow on top.

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

Many Thanks Card

by egarcia on September 7, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have another fall themed thank you card to share with you.  For this one I wanted to show how a nice size sentiment can make for a beautiful focal for your cards.

The collection of patterned papers I used for this one are from the Fall Is In the Air paper pad from Echo Park.  I’ve been featuring papers from this collection in many of my cards recently because I wanted to challenge myself to come as close to using up a paper pad as possible.  I just love the one with all of the acorns.

For the focal sentiment, I used the All Occasions Sentiment stamp set from My Favorite Things.  It has all sorts of nice sized sentiments. I used my oval dies to cut out the white stamped panel and the scalloped oval behind it.  The final touches were added using Nuvo Crystal Drops in the Dark Walnut color.

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

Owl Hugs Card

by egarcia on September 5, 2017

Hi all,

I have a fun combination of some older things with some newer things on today’s card.

I love owls.  I would say they are my “spirit animal”.  Don’t you just love all those owls on that patterned paper.  It comes from the Fall Is In the Air paper pad from Echo Park.

For the focal I used the owl image from the newer stamp set from My Favorite Things called I’m Owl Yours.  I used my comics to color the image in. Then I used my circle dies to cut the panel out.  The sentiment comes from an older Gina K. Designs stamp set called Sun-Kissed Autumn.  I added enamel dots to embellish the card.

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

Hello Foxy Fall Card

by egarcia on August 31, 2017

Hi all,

One of my favorite critter images from Lawn Fawn is the cute little fox from the Into the Woods stamp set.  So of course I had to make a fall themed card with this image.  The patterned papers come from the Fall Is In the Air paper pad from Echo Park.

The fox image was stamped and colored in with copics.  I used foam tape to add it to the stitched circle panel.  I used Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders dies to create the edges on the orange patterned paper.  It adds a nice little touch.  The sentiment was created with a combination of the “hello” from the Sweater Weather Stamp set and the “foxy” was spelled out using Jessie’s ABC’s.

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

Simple Fall Hello Card

by egarcia on August 29, 2017

Hi all,

I have a simple fall hello card to share with you today.

Sometimes I get so into using large stamped focal images on my cards that I forget the beauty of a simple card with just a straight forward sentiment, like this one.  I started out combining two beautiful patterned papers from the Fall is in the Air patterned paper from Echo Park.

For the sentiment I stamped the “Hello” from Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather onto a strip of white card stock and die-cut one end to create the flag tail.  To embellish I added the stamped and die-cut image of the little acorn, which coordinates with the acorn patterned paper used.   Simple, yet you still get the feel of fall I was going for.

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