Creative Card Trio

09/11/18

Hey Fancy Pants Designs Fans!
Hi!  It’s Amy T back with you again with a fun card trio featuring the On Our Way collection.
Today by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I love the Planes, Trains & Automobiles stripe panel.  I used a oval die and centered it on the panel.  I used an ephemera piece from The Bright Side Collection.  Love how you can mix and match collections.

I love wreaths on doors.  I think it is a welcoming touch for guests.  The wreath and family ephemera do not have any adhesive on them.  The clothes pin anchors them on the card.

This card duo were made especially for some friends that are both pilots.  Le’ts chat about the Flight Plan one first.

I’m smitten by this color duo, aren’t you?  So unexpected but fresh and fun.  I used a star die and added another star to the tag from the Tag collection.  I added a die cut hello from my stash.
thanks by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
I’m mad for plaid, aren’t you?  I decided to just use a strip of the pattern paper so that the tag and ephemera airplane would be the star of the card.
I hope you check out the On Our Way Collection, it is filled with such fun colors and designs!
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Welcome Banner

09/10/18

Hello, Friends! Maryám here with you to share a new Project using Fancy Pants Designs Magnolia Moments Collection.

For today’s post, I have created two garlands, one has a lot of rosettes and the other one has some banners/little flags.

Here is a look at both garlands:

For the first one, I created some paper rosettes and I added some chipboard spools to some of them. Once I had them all done, I adhered a piece of paper on the back because I wanted to hang them on my wall.

For the second one, I cut some banners and some circles from the back side of the ‘our story’ paper. I placed the circles over the banners and also added some of the puffy alphas and created the word welcome.

I hope you liked these ideas. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a wonderful day!

Magnolia Trio Set
Hello Friends! I know a lot of you really want to start creating cards, but it seems really hard. If that thought is crossing your mind, you could be overthinking a design.
Today I have a super simple set of cards, that can be created with just a few items
Magnoliatriocards1_Sept_latishayoast
This card set is using the new Magnolia Moments collection.  It has that Urban Farmhouse look that is so on trend right now.
Magnoliatriocards2_Sept_latishayoast
The base of the cards are all the same. White cardstock, with two different pattern papers adhered directly to the cardfront.
Magnoliatriocards3_Sept_latishayoast
What makes each card different is the placement of the diecuts, which were adhered with foam adhesive.

My advice, is to start with a simple design. Then create a bunch of cards with that design until you are bored with it, and then repeat with another simple design.

My final card is my favorite:
Hi by Amy Tsuruta for Fancy Pants Designs
The Letterboard Embellishments are truly amazing.  I really wanted it to shine so I just backed it with a panel from the Magnolia Moments collection.  That sweet bird is from the coordinating ephemera pack.

Pretty Cards…Pretty Moments…

09/03/18

 

Welcome everyone. It’s Anna here with another Fancy Pants project. This time I have three cards for you, all made with “Magnolia moments” collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably noticed that I love using vivid colors on my projects so i usually purchase colorful collections. Romantic is not my go to style but this collection is so pretty, inspiring and so easy to use. You can create pretty cards for many occasions like wedding, love, family celebrations.
1-1
My three cards are simple but this is how I like to create. First card is made as a “Welcome home” card. I was inspired by the doors from Ephemera pack. I picked matching background from 6*6 paper pack. My title is made of two pieces – ephemera word and “home” made with puffy alpha stickers from the same collection.
2-1
Second card is perfect if you want to say “I love you” to someone you cherish. It doesn’t have to be a husband or boyfriend. I am planning to give this card to my mother, to remind her how important she is for me. I mixed light background with flower wreath from Ephemera pack. Tag shape adds some interest and makes is more unique.
3-1
My last card is perfect for wedding. It’s also simple but I love how this letterboard quote stand out. I fussy cut few flowers from “Magnolia moments” paper to embellish it a little bit.
4-1
And what about you? Do you like making cards for your love ones? I hope you will find my simple cards inspiring.
Thank you for stopping by.
XO Anna

Card 1: For this card, I used a beautiful map paper from the 6×6 paper pad and in the center, I made a window to create a shaker pocket. I also stamped and colored some little airplanes from the stamp set.

Card 2: For the second one, I decided to work with two main colors: yellow and blue. For the card sentiment, I added a word phrase from the die-cut pack and as embellishment a cute camera.
