Hot pot

Hello friends! How are you doing today? Hope your day is amazing and better than mine, personally is not bad at all, BUT yesterday we found mouse droppings around the kitchen, oh my goodness! I freaked out, I cleaned up like crazy, but at the same time I was looking around because  "I am scared of mice!" YES! I am admitting it, they freak me out, I can't even see pictures of them. My daughter told me yesterday "Mom, I think you are overreacting! LOL!!

Anyway, hopefully we (I mean my husband) can catch it and my life will be back to normal ;)

Ok, now to my card. I created this card with using one of the new Halloween stamps "Best Witches", from Crafter's Companion. I had a lot of fun coloring this image! I decided to keep the layout pretty simple.

Here are the details:

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Hola, Hola!!

Hi friends! Hope you are starting a great week! Today, I want to show you a couple of cards I created for Latina Crafter's new release!! Six fabulous dies and wood veneers. Maybe, you have a friend or 2 or more who speak Spanish, I think these dies would be so handy to have around ;)

Let's get started!

Hola! For this card I used the new die "Hola", die-cut a couple of pieces, one in red and one in black to create a little shadow. The background was created with the "Chevron stencil" and 4 different spray mist colors. I glued the die pieces onto the background piece, then added few black sequins and added the panel to a A2 white card. It took less than 5 minutes to create! YAY!

Feliz cumpleaƱos: I wanted to keep this card in a monochromatic style. I used a piece of Kraft cardstock (love this Kraft CS, super smooth and not too dark in color) to create my card A2 card base. Then I cut a panel from white cardstock (3.75" x 5"), I used a "Dot Stencil" and Distress Inks to create the background. After that, I die-cut a kraft panel, die-cut the  "feliz cumpleaƱos" in pink cardstock and glued them to the panel. Added a couple of the new wood veneers and fuchsia rhinestones. VOILA! Card was done.

Hope you like them!
Have a fantastic day!

Sweet 'n Sassy September release!!

Hello, Sweet 'n Sassy  friends!  Welcome to the September 2014 Release!  Autumn is such a wonderful time of the year.  Just think of cool crisp mornings, warm colors, ripe, juicy apples, changing leaves, beautiful fall flowers, and Thanksgiving and you have the makings of a fabulous release!

This release is a little different from those in the past as some of the items have already been released to Sweet Perks Club participants…but now, there are a few more Fall surprises we have to share with you!

Here you have the new stamps:
They are all GREAT!!  You are going to love them all! 

Let me show you what I have for you today.

Thankful for you: This card is super simple and I love how it turn out, I wanted to create more than just a background, so I stamped the  Skeleton Leaf Background (twice) on a piece of white cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink, then added white embossing powder and heated set. Then, I used Distress Inks to create a yellow/orange background and for the other one I used blue/green Distress Inks. Then, I used the new Leaf Silhouettes Die Set to die-cut leaves. I used only one from the blue/green background I created, I will be using that one in another project ;) After that I added the die-cut leaves to my background piece, stamped the sentiment from So Grateful set, added a little strip of Cooper Metal Sheet to the end of the BG line, added sequins and twine, added my pieces to a white card base and my card was done!

Happy Fall: Here I used Beary Bountiful Autumn set. This card turned out a lot better than I expected, my main idea was to create something CAS, then I added few things here and there and I started liking more that way, LOL. This card is 5" square. The white panel is 4.5" square, I stamped the background using Distress Inks  and Falling Leaves Set, then I scored each side at 1/8". Then I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black, colored it with Spectrum Noir Markers and die-cut, embossed and stenciled it with a square die. I stamped and colored extra hat, pumpkin and Happy Fall sign, then cut them out and added them to the image with foam adhesive. The sentiment was stamped in Coffee Archival Ink. Finally, I die-cut and embossed the small leaves from Leaf Silhouettes Die Set using Cooper Metal Sheet and added them to the card.

God bless America

Hello friends! Today is a day that we will never forget. I remember I went to the store after my English class at the American Institute (in Peru), I always took the 7-9 am class so then I could head to work or home  and have extra time to do other things. That day I didn't have to go to work, went to the store to get a card for my future husband, got to home and my sister was crying, a lot of chaos everywhere.  Today, I remembered, I prayed and I cried for all of one who lost their love ones that day, I can not image the pain.

So, today I want to share a very special card, this one uses a brand new stamp from Crafter's Companion "Statue of Liberty" 
This card is super simple, it was colored with Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils. The sentiment was colored with pencils and die-cut using a circle die. I added stitches and voila!!

Here is the list of Spectrum Noir markers and pencils I used:

Statue of Liberty: TB1, TB2, TB3, TB4, GT1, GB5
Bricks: EB1, EB2, TN2, BG3
Trees: CG1, DG2, CG4
Dots: LY2
Spectrum Nor Pencils: 016 (Outline)
Sentiment was colored with: CR6, TB4

Hope you like it!
God bless America.

Pumpkin Girl Card!!

Hello friends! Halloween is around the corner and although I don't celebrate it, I have a super cute pumpkin girl with pretty lashes card for you!

This card was super fun and relax to make! I like the pumpkin shape die by itself, but after die-cutting the Top Dog Dies Pumpkin Album Die I decided to draw few lines here and there with Spectrum Noir Pencils and blend them with a stump and a blending solution. I started with a lightest orange color pencils and increased the color as I was feeling more comfortable with the design.
After finishing the coloring/drawing design I die-cut the Top Dog Dies Pumpkin Album Finishers Die Set in Black Shimmering cardstock, the little leaves are in green and polka dot green patterned paper, then I thought it would fun to add some vines, and I took the swirl from Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers Die Set and voila! Card done! I added orange twine to the side.

Here are the dies I used for this project:
Hope you like it!
Have a great day!
