Flantastic Friend Valentine Card

by egarcia on January 17, 2018

Hi all,

I have a fun Valentine’s day card perfect for a friend.

When I saw the new Sweet Friends stamp set from Lawn Fawn and saw that it included an image of a flan, well I knew I had to have it.  In case you don’t know what a flan is, it’s a delicious custard-y dessert popular among Puerto Ricans and Cubans.  This link will teach you the basics about it.  For today’s card I started out with Red Velvet card stock for the base from Gina K.  The patterned papers come from the Be Mine 6×6 pad collection by Pebbles.

For the focal area I created the two hearts with two new die sets from Lawn Fawn, the Lacy Heart stackable and the Outside In Stitched Heart Stackables.  Together these two make wonderful Valentine hearts.  The flan image was stamped and colored in with copics.  I added some glossy accents to the caramel part of the flan.  I loved adding the cute face and arms and legs to the image.  The sentiment was stamped with a combo of black and red inks.  The stamped hearts are the finishing touch to the sentiment.  Of course I had to add a bit of shimmer to those as well.

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

Flurries of Love Card

by egarcia on January 12, 2018

Hi all,

Today I’m combining winter and love themes together, the two themes of this time of year, into a cute card.

Isn’t that little penguin adorable.  I started out with Audrey Blue card stock from Simon Says Stamp for the card base.  The patterned paper, penguin and snowflake stickers, came from the Polar Pals collection.

For the focal I grounded the little penguin with the blue patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment with purple ink.  The sentiment comes from the Cute Snowflakes stamp set by Simon Says Stamp.  The finishing touches were adding some stitched lines to the card stock with my white gel pen and some shimmery white enamel dots.

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

Winter Wishes Card

by egarcia on January 9, 2018

Hi all,

I hope the start of your 2018 has been a good one.  I spent the first week sick, yuck!  I’m so glad to finally be able to get the blog year started.  I also survived the bombogenesis mother of all snow storms and frigid temperatures we had here in New England last week.  So clearly a winter card is in order.

I love how cozy that snowman looks in his hat and scarf, don’t you?  The cute coordinating patterned paper comes from an older Doodlebug collection called Polar Pals.  I added a scalloped edged strip of card stock next to the patterned paper.

For the focal I used the Snowman from Lawn Fawn’s Making Frosty Friends.  It’s a pretty old set, but those snowmen images are timeless.  I also love the hat and scarf images included in the set, which are the perfect size for paper piecing which is what I did here.  The great big sentiment comes from the Hand Lettered Winter Wishes set from Simon Says Stamp.  I think the two sets pair pretty well together.

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

Ornament Gift Tags

by egarcia on December 20, 2017

Hi all,

Are you ready for the holiday weekend?  I’m certainly not. But I guess I still have a few days to get myself ready.  Anyhow, today I have a set of holiday tags to share with you, perfect finishing touch for your gift wrapping.

I used Lawn Fawn’s Tag You’re It die set to die cut the tags from white card stock.  The ornament image and sentiment come from the Decorative Ornaments set by Simon Says Stamp.  To finish of the tags I used some red and white twine.

Of course no gift tag is complete without a To and From stamped on the back.  I used the stamps from the Trim the Tree set by My Favorite Things.

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