Happy Thanksgiving!!

Hello my friends! "Happy Thanksgiving / Feliz Dia de Acción de Gracias". I love thanksgiving, I love to have my family together, laugh and enjoy those beautiful moments that last forever!! Of course I love to eat pumpkin pie too {wink, wink}

Latina Crafter  has a post dedicated to Thanksgiving today, with beautiful projects for you today. I have a little home decor I made for you, just an idea that can be changed to any other holiday/occasion.

For my project I used the new Label Die from Latina Crafter, scored the sides and used an extra label as a base to adhere them, I added some twine on the top.
I used 3 different sets: Confianza y Alabanza en el Señor, Hoy Agradezco, and the Gracias  was from "Super Papá"

I wrapped a couple of Almond Shells (with real almonds inside) with burlap and ribbon (This ribbon is from my birthday flowers bouquets, too pretty to toss it), few purple corn (real ones) around and die-cut some leaves from different colors of cardstock.

Thank You

Hello my friends! I have a Clean and Simple card for you today. I made this card for a challenge I am hosting over at StampTV called "Oldies but Goodies" .

The stamps I used are "A year of flowers" (one of my favorites and the first set I bought from Gina K. Designs), the bold image is from "Pressed Flowers" which coordinates perfectly with AYOF and the sentiment is from "Hello Sunshine", this is not too oldie, but I like the Thank You from this set :)

The cardstock base is Kraft, the sunflowers were stamped first in Espresso Truffle and Tangelo. The sentiment was stamped in Vintage Photo Distress.

The Everlasting Light

Hello my friends! Hope you are having a great Wednesday. I got really sad that I didn't have time or wasn't feeling the best to create anything for the Heartfelt Creations Blog this week, but I managed to make a very CAS Christmas card.

This card would be fantastic to mass produce (to all of you brave people who make your own Christmas cards ;) I haven't started yet)

For this card I used the "Nativity Scene Set". I stamped the image in Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Then I used Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Inks, take the pad and rub it directly on your cardstock. Then stamped the sentiment in Vintage Photo Distress.
I finally added a little gold nail head.


Super easy!!
Hope you like it.

Thinking of you

Hello my friends! It feels like I haven't blogged in forever. I had a house full of sick people last week and I was (as always) the last one getting the bug, agghhh, now I am feeling better, which means more time to create and blog.

I have a card I submitted for publication, but didn't make the cut, so I am posting here for you to enjoy.

The stamps are from Gina K. Designs, the basket is from "Spring Basket Set", the roses are from "Holiday Basket Set" and the saying is from "Stately Flowers 3".  The dies I used are Classic rectangle Nestabilities and Fleur de Leis Nestabilities by Spellbinders.

The images were colored with Copic Markers and cut out. I covered the roses after the card was finished with Crystal Lacquer and let it dried overnight.
I added pink Lace tape and some pretty twine.
