With all my love

Hello friends! Hope you all here in the US had a great Labor Day Weekend. We traveled to see my in-laws, had a good time there. Today, I did yard work (work that never ends), hopefully it will be one of the last ones for the season.
Anyway, I came back home and wanted to play the Butterfly Reflections Ink Labor Day Challenge and I did!! A bit late but I did and I am very happy because I haven't crafted in more than a week {wink, wink}

The challenge is about your favorite season and mine is... FALL!! Perfect weather, I am not a fan of hot weather, although I like summer because I can garden, LOL.

And this is the card I made. I used this pretty Sunflower stamp and the sentiment is from Flowers from Bamboo by Crafter's Companion. I colored the image with Distress Inks, I used Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Brushed Corduroy, Peeled Paint, Broken China and Tumbled Glass. Added few turquoise sequins and cover the image with Crystal Lacquer and the card was done!
I used the sketch #90 from CAS(E) this sketch.

Have a fantastic day/night!!

Our lives are like quilts

Hello friends! Sharing this super cool card today. I really love the sentiment in this set from Crafter's Companion. Few years ago, I decided I wanted to make a quilt, I always love to sew and I thought it would be fun to make one for my daughter, I bought all the fabrics I liked, and the thread, and extra materials. After few cuts and a lot of ironing, I started sewing, all the piece were uneven, I cried (now I am laughing), I tried it again and the same thing happened. I decided to try something else and that's how I found paper crafting!! I still have all the little pieces of quilt in a big box, my daughter found it the other day and asked me what my plans are for all that fabric, LOL. I bet she has a plan already.

Anyway, I will share with you how I made this card! Super easy

Glittery Ombre Tutorial

Hello friends! Today, I am sharing a super easy tutorial!! You have probably seen something similar, but this time you are not going to waste a bit of your products! Promise {wink, wink}

For this project I created an ombre background using Embossing Paste and Glitter! Super easy and you can make this in any color you like/want.

Let get started!

  • Secure your mat to a piece of cardstock (here I used white) with removable tape or washi tape.

  •  Combine White Embossing Paste and 2 drops of Faded Jeans Distress Ink, mix well.

  • Apply it to left part of your piece, then add "more embossing paste" to soft the blue and apply to the middle part (I applied it diagonally) 

  •  Mix 1 more time the remaining past with more embossing paste to apply to your right bottom corner (your softest color)

  •  Add clear glitter to piece, use your heat gun to set it.

*Sentiment from Lots to Say (Reverse Confetti)
*Flowers from Painted Flower (Altenew)

Have a great day!

Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop! This month I am glad I am joining the fun.
I made this card for a very special person who has been feeling under the weather, hopefully she will feel better and like this card.

For this card I used Sun Kissed Fleur set and Sun Kissed Fleur dies. I stamped the flowers on Sun Kissed Paper Collection in Versamark Ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set, sprayed them with Chocolate mist. Die-cut the leaves from Classic Leaf Die set also from the same patterned paper, sprayed them with Green Mist.
The card base is 5" x 5", the paper panel is from Posy Patch Paper Collection as well as the sentiment. I matted it with Light Blue Cardstock and added a couple of thin piece to the top and side, then added stitches. Finally, I added brown hemp twine and clear sequins. 

Here is the list of participants:

Imagination can take you anywhere

Hello friends! Hope you all are having a great day! My daughter starts school today and she is super excited to see her friends, meet new friends and be in a new school! No more elementary school kid in this house.
Ok, it has been a while since I share a new Z Becky Brown handbag. This design is super easy. Here I used my beautiful White Night Bag
Here are the details:

  • Start with a set of Ziva Solar White Inserts, create a cloud background around all panel (top/middle area).
  • Stamp image from Happiness is... in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, color image with markers, here I used Spectrum Noir.
  • Stamp sentiment from same set in StazOn Claret ink.
  • Die cut grass and sun from Patterned Paper. Adhere them to panels and VOILA!

Hope you like it!
Have a great day!!
