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!

Spooktacular Mummy Card

by egarcia on October 12, 2017

Hi all,

I have another Halloween card to share with you today.  This one would be perfect for your favorite kid.

First, that awesome background patterned paper.  I just love it!  It comes from an older Doodlebug collection called Boos & Brews.  I still had a few sheets left from the paper pad and sticker sheets, which were perfect for this card.

For the focal panel I cut out that bright orange patterned paper with my stitched rectangle dies.  I’ve become addicted to that stitched look on my cards.  I then placed the mummy sticker in the center of the panel.  The sentiment was stamped with black ink and comes from the Spooktacular stamp set by Lawn Fawn.  I added some twine to the top of the panel for additional embellishment, and that finished the card.

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

Hauntingly Happy Halloween

by egarcia on October 10, 2017

Hello All:

Today I have a great Halloween card using some distressed oxide inks for the background and some printed cut outs to create a spooky scene.

I started out by creating that great background.  I used distress oxide inks to ink white Neenah solar white card stock.  I used the largest of the stitched rectangle dies to cut out the panels to fit the full size of the card.  By spraying some water drop onto the background you get that great distress effect.

The cemetery scene was created using the two tomb stone cut out pieces and the tag.  I added the owl piece on top of one of the tomb stones.  These pieces come from Pebbles Midnight Haunting printed card stock shapes collection.  I added a twine bow to decorate the tag.  The tomb stone pieces and tag are nestled into the grass border which was created using Lawn Fawn Grassy Border die.

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

Halloween Hello Card

by egarcia on October 3, 2017

Hi all,

October is here and you know what that means…Halloween card time!  So here’s the first of the season.

I started out with patterned papers from the gorgeous Midnight Haunting paper from Pebbles.  Love all the patterns in this collection.

For the focal image I used a beautiful favorite set from My Favorite Things, the Witch Way Candy set.  I stamped the adorable witch and colored her in with my copics.  I cut her out with the coordinating dies.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same set onto the patterned paper.

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

Happy Harvest Card

by egarcia on September 21, 2017

Hello all:

Today I have a cute Happy Harvest card to share with you.

The patterned papers are from my stash of autumn themed papers.  I used the MFT’s Stitched Strips dies to die-cut the strip of patterned paper with the fall banners.  I love the additional stitching around the panel.

The images come from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Harvest stamp set.  I stamped them and colored them in with my copics.  The sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped directly on the patterned paper.

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