I miss you!

Hello friends! We are starting a new month, October is here, the leaves are changing colors and we can enjoy everything pumpkin! I love October weather, perfect for me (I don't like extreme temperatures, with that being said Summer and Winter are not my favorite)

Anyway, new month means new challenge over at Latina Crafter Blog, the twist for this month is "Buttons", so you can use the sketch, the twist or combine both.

And this is my creation, I flipped the sketch to the side to use this cute owl image. The sets I used are "Te extraño" and "Eres mi razón"
The image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers, the paper is from Stampin' Up. I added stitches, rhinestones and a button with twine.

You can join us and submit your creations HERE

Have a fantastic day!

Thank You

Hello friends!! How are you doing today/tonight? Hopefully you are having/had a fabulous day. I started this post earlier today (around noon), but couldn't finish it because the little ones woke up at the same time and my busy schedule started again.

Anyway, I want to share with you about a new stamp company, it is called Concord & 9th and it has super cute stamps!! I recently purchased 3 sets and today had the chance to play with one of them while the little ones were napping, this one is called Painted Thank You and it is super cute and fun stamp.

I used the embossing resist technique for this card, the colorful background was created with my Color Burst Powders, that is something you need to get for sure, they are so much to play with ;)

Here are the details:
  • Make a card base from white cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a piece of watercolor paper, size 4.75" x 3.5". 
  • Stamp image in Versamark Watermark ink, add white embossing powder and heat set! Then, mist your watercolor paper with water and sprinkle your Color Burst Powder, here I used Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow and Ultramarine Blue. (I got mine on Blitsy)
  • Stamp the little flower in a circle tag, add lace tape and silver thread.
  • Adhere panel to card base.

Hope you like it!!
Have a fantastic day/night!

Three cards, one die.

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday to you all.Today I have 3 cards for you using 1 die! I made these cards some time ago but haven't had time to show them to you, what's wrong with me? {wink, wink}

Anyway, for this project I used a Create a Card Die, this one is called "Daisy Dreams", for this project I die-cut the Daisy Dreams die in Pink Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, then cut the lager piece in 2.

Here is a view of the cards made with just 1 die!! You can do so much with them!

Card #1: For this card I used the upper part of the die. Created a window with rectangle dies and added white and  pink pearl panels behind. Stamped the sentiment from Sentimentals Friends and Family set in St. Valentine StazOn ink, the little flowers are from Four Seasons Die set. Added pearls.

Card #2:For this card I used the bottom part of the die, just added a Rose Pearl piece behind the die part, scored the lines around the window piece and mounted it to a white card base. Stamped the sentiment from Sentimentals Friends and Family Set. Added pearls.

Card #3: This last uses the circle die-cut part. I die-cut a window using circle and scallop circles in Rose Pearl Shimmering cardstock to create a shaker part. Inside I added sequins and rhinestones, added little flowers and leaves from Four Seasons Die set and stamped the sentiment also from Sentimentals Family and Friends Set.
