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!

Cute Hello Skunk Card

by egarcia on September 19, 2017

Hi all,

I have a cute critter card for you today.

The only way I would ever find a skunk to be cute is either in the movie Bambi or in a Lawn Fawn stamp set, like this adorable image from Lawn Fawn’s Into the Woods stamp set.  I stamped the image and colored it in with my comics.  I then used my stitched circle dies to die-cut the piece.  I used patterned papers from my stash for the background.

For the sentiment I used my favorite “hello” from Lawn Fawn’s Sweater Weather set.  I then die-cut a couple of leaves from the patterned paper using dies from the Sweater Weather coordinating dies.

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

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!
