Hot Air Balloon Birthday Card

by egarcia on June 6, 2017

Hi all,

With Father’s Day approaching I’ve been in the mood to make masculine cards not just for Father’s Day but for other occasions as well.  So today I’m sharing a masculine birthday card with you.

I started out with this great 6×6 paper collection called Old World Travel from Carta Bella.  The patterns are perfect for masculine cards. I added some inking to the edges of all the papers to add to that vintage old world feel.

For the focal image I turned to one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp sets called Past Times.  It’s an older stamp set, but it has such great classic masculine images that I always grab it to make masculine cards.  The sentiment comes from the Masculine Motifs stamp set by Papertrey Ink.  To embellish I used some brown enamel dots.

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

Teacher Apples Card

by egarcia on June 1, 2017

Hi all,

Continuing with the teacher appreciation theme today. Here’s a different take on the classic teacher apple imagery.

I started out with fun patterned papers from the Teacher’s Pet collection by Echo Park.

For the images I turned to the All Apples set by Reverse Confetti.  These are fun bold images that include sentiments on them.  I steered away from the traditional red and green colors for apples and chose other coordinating colors with the patterned paper.  I stamped and die-cut the images using coordinating dies.  I just love that one sentiment, “It takes a big heart to shape little minds”.

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

Teacher You Rule Card

by egarcia on May 30, 2017

Hi all,

It’s that time of year when we show our appreciation to all those special teachers who worked hard all year teaching our kids.  So today I have a fun teacher card to share with you.

For this card I started out with that great patterned paper full of all sorts of colorful rulers.  The paper comes from the Teachers Pet 6×6 pad from Echo Park.

I paired that great patterned paper with the perfect punny sentiment, “teacher you rule” which comes from Lawn Fawn’s A Good Apple set.  It’s an older set, but it’s new to me, so it was fun to ink it up for this card.  I stamped the sentiment onto another patterned paper from the same collection which I die-cut using my Circle Stitched dies from My Favorite Things.  The final touch were the enamel dots.

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

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.

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!
