Joy to the World

Hello friends! Today I have a Christmas card for you. I am trying to have my Christmas cards done before Thanksgiving and have enough to send to my family and friends, this one is easy, elegant and has the metallic factor that everyone will love.

For this project I used RedGreen and Gold Metallic Tapes, perfect Christmas combo, I invited to visit the Rainbow Tape Blog for a picture tutorial, check it out HERE

So, here few steps of the card process:
  • Apply 1/4 Green and Gold Metallic Tape on a piece of cardstock and die-cut pieces. I used dies from Pretty Poinsettia Die set.
  •  Cut a piece of white cardstock, 4" x 4"and adhere Red Metallic Tape in all sides.
  • Stamp image from Christmas Visitors set in Distress Ink, then color it with Spectrum Noir AquaBlend Pencils: Kiwi, Deep Forest, Bottle Green, Rose, Violet, Strawberry, Fossil Grey, Dove Grey, Aqua. Trim image to 3" x 3" and ink all edges. Add piece to 4" square piece with foam tape.
  • Create a card base 5" x 5", adhere the panel with the red border and then add the colored panel.
  • Stamp sentiment from Season's Greetings set on a piece of vellum in Versamark Watermark ink, add Gold embossing powder and heat set.

And before I leave, Crafter's Companion is joining the birthday celebrations from our sister Crafter's Companion UK!! And we have New Products plus the entire site is with a 25% OFF!!!

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

You are Great

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday to you all! Sorry for the unexpected break, dealing with joint pain after doing a lot of yard work, it's taking me more time than I expected, but feeling better sooooo I am sharing with you this card I created using this beautiful card from Concord & 9th called "You are enough"

For the flower, I stamped it on a piece of watercolor paper in Versamark Watermark ink, then colored it with Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens, I wish the picture could do more justice.
For the background I used again my Spectrum Noir Sparkle pens and added few drops of ink direct on a piece of watercolor paper, here I used Peacock Blue, Aquamarine, Hearthside, Biscuit.
I stamped the sentiment in Ken Oliver Crimson Click It Ink. Finally  I added a strip of gold metallic tape.

I got inspired by the colors from "The Challenge" Color Challenge

and Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge "Watercolor"

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Starting from the Same Place Blog Hop!!

Hello friends!! The day has finally arrived, the Artist Collaboration "Starting from the same place" Blog Hop is here. First I want to say Thank you Tina for the wonderful idea and organizing this Artist Collaboration, this has been a project in the making since July, so today you are going to enjoy projects from artists not only from the USA, but only from around the world!!
I have seen little peeks of the projects and they are amazing!

So, everybody started with the same package of products and the only rule was to use everything that was given. You could add other products if you need it.
The picture below is the starting package.

So, now let's share a bit about my project. At first I didn't know what to do, well I knew I wanted to work on a canvas, so I had a little chat with my crafty sister Lee Ann and she said, make something with flowers and then the idea was born!
I started adding a good coat of gesso to my 16" x 20" canvas, after dried I used modeling paste and the cute stencil and added in the center and opposite corners, after it got dried I painted some areas with light blue and silver acrylic paint.To give it an extra wow factor I added drops of Platinum and Metallic Rose Color Burst (I wish my pictures could show the shimmer goodness)
I made the flowers from the fabric I got in the package, the green fabric was for leaves only, I painted the gears in copper paint

I added on top and bottom right corners 1/4" Blue and White Masking Tape, I also added 1/8" Gold Metallic Tape from Rainbow Tape

This is the final piece, I think it looks much better in person!

You can check out all the fabulous creations in the link below:

Hope you like my canvas, I would love to hear from you.
Have a fantastic day!!

So very thankful

Hello friends!! Today, I am sharing a very Fall-y card. Fall is my favorite season, love seeing all the leaves changing colors, fresh weather (in the PNW) and a lot of pumpkin everything {wink, wink}

I have a very simple card with Fall colors using this new Lace Leaf set from Concord & 9th, the leaves were stamped in Vintage Photo and Peeled Paint Distress Inks as well as Memento Rich Cocoa and Tangelo Inks.
The background was created with Yellow Ochre, Orchid, Burnt Orange and  Tangerine Color Burst, then I added 1/16" Purple Masking Tape and 1/16" Gold Metallic Tape. I also added a strip of 1/16" Gold Metallic Tape to the brown/orange leaf.
I stamped the sentiment in Crimson Click It Ink.
Finally, I added the white panel to a Yellow Pearl Shimmering Cardstock card base.

I am entering this project to Where Creativity Meets C9 "Celebration" Challenge.  Why not celebrate thankfulness, giving thanks always.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

On your Anniversary

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday to you all.Today marks the last day of Summer, I have to say I love Fall, and the cooler and much enjoyable weather, light jackets and Pumpkin everything {wink, wink}

Anyway, I have been busy (as always), but I want to share with you this super cute Anniversary card I made using corner dies from Crafter's Companion. Yes, the beautiful Heart Corner Dies were snipped from the piece of cardstock and added to the panel to be the center piece, I die-cut them using Silver Luxury Matt Mirror Cardstock (from the Together Forever Collection).
I used a 6" x 6" White Scored card as my base card, then I used a piece of vellum and dry embossed it with Decadent Damask Embossing Folder, cut a piece of Silver Starlight Shimmering Cardstock to add on top of it, glued the heart die-cut pieces and added an "On Your Anniversary" die-cut piece with foam adhesive to give it a little bit f dimension. As a last touch I added a silk bow, paper flowers and pearls from the Downton Abbey Collection.
All my die-cutting and embossing was made with my Gemini (a great machine!!)

I hope you like it.
Have a fantastic day!

Thinking of you

Hello friends! How are you doing today? Hope your weekend was great, full of crafty time, mine was full of yard/ patio and house cleaning, but feeling good after had it all done. 
Today I want to show a card I made using Latina Crafter stamps and a Red Crepe Paper tape from Rainbow Tape.

For this card I stamped various images from "Sellos Postales" and "Mini Feliz" sets in vibrant colors, here I used Ken Oliver Click it Inks, then cut a couple of pieces of Ivory Cardstock and adhered 1/4" Red Crepe Paper Tape, the textured is super cool and the adhesive is permanent, seriously, once you adhere it, it will not peel off!

Here it's the card, I will be sending this card to a lady who is battling cancer, hopefully this card will lift her spirits.
