Thanksgiving Critters Card

by egarcia on November 2, 2017

Hi all,

I hope you all had a great Halloween.  People seem to have already jumped into the Holiday season and skipped right over Thanksgiving.  I even heard holiday music already on the radio!  I love Christmas, but November 1st is too early event for me.  So in order to slow things down a bit and not just gloss over Thanksgiving I’m sharing a Thanksgiving card with you today.

How cute is this scene with woodland critters having their own thanksgiving feast?  I started out creating the frame using Lawn Fawn’s Leafy Tree Backdrop die.  The die set also includes the die to create the top part of the tree.

For the scene I used the Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die to create the grass.  The critters and food setting all come from Lawn Fawn’s Forest Feast stamps and dies. I used Zig Real Brush Pens to color in the images.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the patterned paper and comes from the same set.

It was so much fun creating this Thanksgiving scene.  I hope you enjoyed today’s project.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

FMS 310: Happy Turkey Day

by egarcia on October 28, 2017

Hi all,

A bonus post for you today.   I saw this sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and I immediately thought of making this card.

I was inspired to create this fun Thanksgiving card shifting the sketch a bit.

I started out with Neenah Desert Storm card stock for the card base.  I used patterned papers from the A Perfect Autumn collection from Echo Park. I inked each panel with some brown ink which makes each piece stand out a bit more.

For the focal image I used the cute Turkey image from Lawn Fawn’s Turkey Day stamp set. I used my copics to color the image.  Then used the coordinating die to cut it out.  The sentiment was stamped onto the patterned paper and it also comes from the same stamp set.

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

Haunted House Card

by egarcia on October 26, 2017

Hi all,

One of the things I love about Doodlebug is that their paper packs always include sheets with blocks of images that can totally be used as focals on a card like I did on this card.This card was made with papers from last year’s collection from Doodlebug called Boos & Brews.  I made cards last year with this collection and this year and I still have pieces left!  I created the background with two different papers from the collection.  The Sweet Mango card base from Gina K. Designs creates a nice border around the various pieces of paper.

I matted a piece of the purple patterned paper onto orange paper which helps to make the focal block piece look a bit bigger.  The little haunted house image piece was also matted with card stock.  The sentiment strip also comes from a patterned paper in the collection.  I cut a flag end to the strip.  The final touch were some purple enamel dots from my stash.

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

If the Broom Fits Card

by egarcia on October 24, 2017

Hi all,

Halloween is next week, can you believe it!  So I have the final Halloween projects to share with you this week. 

I started out with Black Onyx card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base.  The patterned paper comes from the Midnight Haunting collection by Pebbles.

For the focal I used this pre-printed vintage looking panel that includes a great fun sentiment, “if the Broom fits…”, perfect to give to your witchy friends.  To embellish the panel I used  Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal drops.  These crystal drops are some of my new favorites.  They make it so easy to create your own enamel accents for a card.

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

Butterfly Halloween Card

by egarcia on October 17, 2017

Hi all,

Today I have a bit of an unexpected Halloween card.  It doesn’t feature anything spooky or any of the usual imagery related to Halloween.  It features butterflies!

I started out with the Sweet Mango card stock from Gina K. Designs for the card base.  The color coordinated beautifully with the patterned paper which comes from the Midnight Haunting collection by Pebbles.

For the focal I used the butterfly tag which includes the “happy halloween” sentiment.  The tag is part of the Midnight Haunting ephemera collection.  I love the gold foiling on the butterfly.  To embellish the tag I added some black and orange twine and placed a strip of black patterned paper behind it to make the whole focal piece pop from the background of the card.

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