Paper Pieced Something

Hello my friends, it is finally Friday!! I don't know if I should be happy or not , LOL. DH and I have a lot of yard work to do, I've already done some of the work, but still a lot to be done. DH has 5 days off , oh my!! Today our challenge at Stamp Something Blog is Paper Piecing!! I love to paper pieced, just cutting and not coloring.
For my card I used one of the new releases sets from smARTworks, this set is called "Dance" and has beautiful stamps. I stamped the cute little girl in a piece of White Card stock using Real Red Ink, I also stamped the image "twice" in SU Bella Rose DP. I cut out the whole dress from one of the DP and then from the other one I cut only from the roses down. I glued the first dress on the girl and then I glued the roses part and added some Dimensionals on the bottom, that creates a really cool 3D effect. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red as well. I used Burgundy and Red Craft for sponging. I applied some Glitter on the dress.
Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Pink Pirouette, Real Red, White.
Paper: SU Bella Rose DP.
Stamps: Dance (smARTworks)
Ink: Real Red, Burgundy, Red.
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon, Clear Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts)
Accessories: Sponges, Corner punch, Mini glue dots, SU Dimensionals. Sewing machine, thread.

Be Joyful Always.

Hello my friends and happy Wednesday. I have a late middle week card, LOL. I tried to stamp earlier, but I had a billion things to do, finally I sat down this afternoon when DD was napping and started creating. I used 2 of the new SU In Colors: Soft Suede and Dusty Durango, pretty pretty colors!! My sketch comes from one of my favorite blogs 2 Sketches 4 You . Since I saw the sketch last Monday I knew I had to create this card, but I was waiting for my Card stock. Finally CS arrived and I didn't have time, life is not always fair, uh?

My card is very self explanatory I think. The Pretty paper is from Out & About Collection (My Mind's Eye). The sentiment is from smaRTworks "Buttoned Up, it was heat embossed in gold ep, the borders were distressed and sponged with gold ink. The back piece is Soft Suede color and cut the borders with Provo Craft Scissors. Finally I added a piece of White CS that was previously dry embossed in the Cuttlebug machine, easy peasy, :)
If you have any questions , let me know.

Feliz 28 Peru!!

Hello my friends! I hope you are having a great. Today I was a bit sad. Why?? Because today it is Peru's Independence Day and my whole family were planning to get together and have a fun time. This morning I called my dad and we talked for a long time, then I called my sister and I enjoyed talking with her little one (22 months old girl) who I have met only by pictures. DD talked to her cousins, language problems, but they had fun talking about cartoons and Barnie, LOL. I haven't called my brother yet who he is a busy man and almost never find him home. My youngest sister who lives in NC is a busy lady too and her phone was busy, LOL.
Anyway, I hope they had a lot of fun together and enjoyed the good Peruvian food!! HMM I want to eat "Picarones" and "Carapulcra" yummy!!!

After a while, I danced and sang with my daughter VBS songs, super fun!! that put me in a good mood and decided to stamp. For my card I used one of the new releases from smARTworks: Psalm 118:5. I also used the Oz-some sketch from Heather Scott. Marianne, one of my followers, sent me some pretty flowers, so I used one of the pink ones, folded in half, applied some Diamond and Gold Glitter.

Have you seen the female owl's eyelashes? Ohhhh, so cute!! :)

Be Still

Hello my friends and Happy Thursday. Is the weather crazy where you are at? Here, it is super windy!! kinda scary to be honest. I spent part of my day coloring with DD, animals, princesses, flowers, you name it, she has them all, LOL. Of course I wanted to make cards , but this time coloring together was so much fun, she tried to copy my coloring techniques!! she is doing great, of course she is only 5. She always says her daddy doesn't know how to color, that makes me laugh any time I hear that.

Anyway, today I made a card using the sketch from Card Patterns. I started my card with a piece of Kraft (SU), then I cut a piece of Tan Parchment (The Paper Company), stitched and distressed around. I used scraps of Real Red, Kiwi Kiss and Naturals (all SU), this is a good way to use all your little pieces. The stamp is from Verve, the butterfly punch is from MS and the ribbon is from The Paper Studio.

I thought of you today

Hello my friends, I hope you are having a great day. I am pretty much enjoying summer time. Today we are hitting 102 F!! It is hot here. This morning I decided to mow the lawn and I ended up like a tomato, LOL. During my mowing adventure (the pushing/walking mower) I saw something bouncing around, I got curious and I found out it was a mouse, yikes!!! I am super scared of mice, yeap, may sound funny, but I don't like those critters. I let him ran away and I finished my job. Now, my back yard looks much better, :) :) We have weeds to pull, but any other day, too hot to work outside.
Anyway, today I have a shiny card for you. I played the sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I decided to go Monochromatic, I think my card turned out really pretty. I used Natural CS (SU) and stamped the images using White Craft Ink and then applied Gold Embossing powder. After that I cut it in 4 squares and sewed them onto another piece of Naturals CS. I attached some Green Lime Ribbon. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Brown Ink.

Hello my friends, I am back!! I stamped today and that feels great. The only problem I had is that when I tried to make my post my computer decided not to cooperate, argghhh, so I decided to go and cook dinner and try it later. Anyway, I stamped a quick and clean card today. I started my card with Pink Pirouette CS, a piece of Real Red and White. I stamped the tulip frame on White CS using Real Red ink. The sentiment was stamped in Mellow Moss. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment in the right place. After that, I sponged the borders and positioned onto the Red CS and stitched together. I stamped the tulip in a scrap piece of paper, colored , cut it out and positioned it on the main image.
I based my card design on Heather's 0z-some sketch
