Happy Easter Spring Scene Card

by egarcia on March 28, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a happy little Spring scene for Easter card using all Lawn Fawn goodies.

It all began when I realized I could use the Lawn Fawn Leafy Tree Backdrop die for a Spring themed card. I cut the die from white card stock and the brown dotted paper.  I then cut out the tree part of the brown dotted frame and glued it on top of the tree part of the white die-cut frame.  I used the Grassy Border die to die-cut the two grassy borders on the bottom to tuck the little flowers into.

The images come from the Happy Easter set from Lawn Fawn.  I stamped them all onto white card stock, colored them in with my copcis, and die-cut them with the coordinating dies.  It was so much fun placing them in the scene.  The sentiment comes from the same stamp set and was stamped with black ink.  I added some enamel dots from my stash to embellish the sentiment. I dusted a bit of blue distress ink lightly on the background to create the sky.

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

Make a Splash Spring Rain Card

by egarcia on March 23, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a fun rainy Spring day card.

This card was inspired by that patterned paper.  They looked like drops of rain to me so I thought  it would be the perfect backdrop to the little girl image wearing her rain coat from Simon Says Stamp Abby’s Spring Shower stamp set.  I stamped and die-cut the images and colored them in with copies.  I added a bit of Wink of Stella to her rain coat buttons, the flower on her rain hat, and the puddle under her boots.

The sentiment was stamped onto the little die-cut square of the patterned paper.  I just love how this one turned out.

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

Peeps-filled Hugs Card

by egarcia on March 21, 2017

Hi all,

I’ve been having some fun with peeps.  Not the marshmallow kind, but the stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  Here’s my creation for today.

I started out with fun Easter themed papers from my stash.  The peeps are created using the My Kind of Peep stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.  I just stayed the peeps on the different patterned papers and cut them out.  The sentiment was stamped and the Hugs part was colored in with my comics.  To cut out the panel I used my Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles dies.

Here’s a close up of that focal area.  As a finishing touch I added the twine bow on top.

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

Baby Boy Card FMS #279

by egarcia on March 18, 2017

Hi all,

I have a new baby boy card to share with you today using another Freshly Made Sketch.  I’ve been really enjoying using sketches lately to get my mojo going and this card was no exception.

Here’s the sketch I had to play with.  I really enjoyed the challenge of using those multiple layers, something that doesn’t come naturally to me.

Here’s what I created using the sketch.  The card base uses Blue Denim card stock from Gina K. Designs.  The patterned papers come from the Snips & Snails paper collection by Doodlebug Designs.

For the focal I used one of my favorite baby themed stamp sets, the Plus One set by Lawn Fawn.  I stamped the images onto white card stock, colored in with copics, and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I then stamped the sentiment onto the patterned paper.  I really liked the little rattle as an embellishment.

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

Lucky Friend Card

by egarcia on March 7, 2017

Hi all,

In the spirit of the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday I’m sharing a somewhat related card going along with the lucky theme usually affiliated with some of the icons of the holiday such as the four leaf clover.  This would make a great friendship card for someone who celebrates St. Patrick’s day or is Irish.

For this card I used patterned papers from the Pot O’ Gold 6×6 pad from Doodlebug designs.  This was last year’s St. Patrick’s Day themed collection, but still got lots of it left.

For the focal I used this lovely sentiment from the Lucky stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I die-cut the panel using my oval Spellbinders nestabilities dies and matted using one of the scalloped ovals dies from Spellbinders as well.  That great scalloped border was created using dies from the Stitched Scalloped Border collection from Lawn Fawn.  The final touch was that little sticker which comes from the Pot O’Gold sticker sheet.

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