Sweet 'n Sassy "Christmas Blog Hop"

Hello friends! Welcome to a fun Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas Blog Hop, for this special occasion I created 2 cards using the set I chose for this hop which is "Poinsettia Stamp" and "Poinsettia Die"

Red Poinsettia: This card was very simple, details to take note are the panel under the vellum piece was spray with green and red mist, then added a piece of vellum on top and red cardstock on the bottom and added stitches. Stamped the sentiment in Brown Archival ink, then added burlap and twine. The poinsettia was colored with Spectrum Noir markers. Final touches are the pearls and liquid pearls on the center of flower.

Pink Poinsettia: This card is super simple!! I stitched 2 pieces of patterned paper, added a little of leftover burlap and stamp the sentiment on a banner. The poinsettia was colored with Spectrum Noir pencils. Final touch just added sequins and liquid pearls to the center of flower.

A couple of "Clean and Simple" Christmas cards

Hello friends!! It's Saturday (night!) and I am here, blogging and relaxing on my couch after a day in the garden. My daughter and I cleaned  up 2 small boxes and 75% of the biggest garden box, we left tomatoes only on the ground, hopefully we will get more tomatoes before the real cold weather starts.
We harvested 22 pumpkins, 4 spaghetti squash, tomatoes, potatoes and beets!!

Anyway, after that I was so tired I only wanted to rest, I didn't even cook, ordered pizza and the family was happy. {wink, wink}

Ok, let me show you a couple of projects I made few days ago with a soon-to-be released stamps by Latina Crafter. I was in the Christmas and watercolor mood! They are super simple with lots of clean spaces (if you know my style, I love layers and layers)

Feliz Navidad: For this card, I stamped the trees on a piece of watercolor paper in versamark ink, added white embossing powder and heat set. Then I used my Inktense pencils and applied red, green, blue colors mixing them with a pencil until I got the background I wanted. Added a piece of dark green cardstock and zig-zag stitches. Then, addedthe panel to an A2 white card base. The sentiment was stamped on a piece of vellum in Versamark ink and gold embossing powder. Finally tied twine. My card was inspired the Fusion Sketch
Submitting this card also to: Virginia's View Challenge: Clean and Simple and Addicted to CAS: Vellum

Disfrutando esta Navidad: Means "Enjoying Christmas". Pretty much the same as the first card, for this one the same tree, I sprayed the image with sunflower and chocolate mists and blue intense pencil.Added straight stitches and die-cut the left side with a scallop line die. The sentiment was stamped tho the side, added red ribbon to create a nice contrast. I got inspired by the CAS(E) this Skech #96 

Hope you like them.
Have a great night!

For You Tutorial

Hi friends! Today  I have a very simple and fun tutorial using brand new Sheena Douglas Stencils, this time I am using "Summer Meadow Stencil" and also new to the store Dreamweaver Embossing Pastes, in this project I am using Matte Black Embossing Pate.

Lets get started:

  •  Looks like this after all the pretty shimmering spray.

  •  Then, take your Claret StazOn Ink and stamp the daisies from Poppies and Daisies set. 

  •  While the paste still wet, sprinkle Dreamweaver Gold Metallic F/X. Set aside to dry. After it is completely dry, get a little bit of the gold fix and rub it on the embossed areas. It will give the black a really nice shimmer. 

  • This is the result. I added the embossed piece to an A2 card base, I added a strip of Candy Red Shimmering cardstock and few white stars I had leftover from the Christmas Wreath Die.

Hope you like it.
Have a great day.
