A Friend like You


Hello friends!! Today I have a super simple and sweet card. Let me tell you a little something about this card. I had in mind something completely different, but my flower didn't turn out the way I wanted, the background was very messy and I was getting ready to toss the piece to the garbage, then I decided to cut out the poppy from Poppy Bouquet and colored it with alcohol markers over the watercolor coloring I did before, then I liked it, hehe.


The oval piece is a leftover from THIS project, were I used the Gingham background, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock in versamark watermark ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set, the sentiment is from Friend Like You.
Finally I added pink sequins and pearls

Remember , you can get all these stamps with a 10% discount using my super duper discount code TJ10Giovana

Hope you like it.
Have a fantastic day!

Happy Father's Day!

 
Hello friends! Hope you are having a fantastic Father's Day!
I have been super busy with family, work and some craft stuff, I am a little late posting this card, but I hope you all are having/had a great day

For this project I used the new "Anchors Background" and "Happy Father's Day" stamps.

Details:
  • Start stamping the "Anchors Background" on a piece of white cardstock in Blue Ink, then wipe your stamp and ink it up with Versamark Watermark Ink on top, then add Clear Embossing powder and heat set. Your MISTI is a great tool to do the perfect stamping.
  • After that, apply Broken China Distress Ink all over the image. Trim image, I did 3.75" x 5"
  • Stamp "Happy Father's Day" sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. Adhere it to background piece.
  • Adhere panel to a white card base. Tie twine around the sentiment.
  • Add a stamped or die-cut anchor.
You can use my TJ10Giovana code to get a 10% discount on your order.



Hope you like this project.
Have an amazing day!

Die-cut a frame, added foam tape underneath and adhered it to the design paper.
Die-cut the animals from Caboodle Die Set using watercolor paper, then sponged them with Distress inks. Added the die-cuts behind the window. Added tulle and ribbon to create the curtains. Added a piece of wood paper behind, then added the panel to the 6" square white card base.

You are my Sunshine
For this project I used Sunflower Duo and Sunflower Sentiments (set of 2).
Details: I stamped the sunflower image on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Rich Cocoa, then colored the image with Chameleon Pencils.
Little confession, when I was cutting the image I messed it up one of the sides, so I decided to die-cut it an leave the leaf part intact.
Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
I used Facets Stencil to add a little extra dimension to the panel.
Added the panel to a white card base, then added sequins and twine.



Happy Bird-day
For this card I used the new Flamingo 1 and Happy Bird-day sentiment, and part of Filled with Wonders, just the little corner to get the leaves.
Details: I started stamping the Flamingo image on a piece of white cardstock in Pink, Dark Pink Ink and then I outlined some areas with a Pigma Micron 05 black pen.
I traced a circle and colored it with a pink marker, then die-cut the piece and colored inside the stitched lines with a coral marker (here I used Spectrum Noir Markers).
Then, stamped the corner leaves from "Filled with Wonders" image and colored it with markers, then cut it out and added to the panel.
The sentiment was stamped on a piece of black cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set.
Adhered the panel using foam adhesive to a white card base.
I added clear dew drops to embellish the card.

My Sweet Petunia and Technique Tuesday Blog Hop


Hello everyone!! We have another fun collaboration blog hop between My Sweet Petunia and Technique TuesdayAmazing projects will be shared from both Design Teams and chances to win too! 

I have 3 projects for you today! Super fun stamps and coordinated dies!
Let's get started.

Exercise?
Ok, this card is so me!! LOL. I eat pretty healthy, but fries are my weakness, believe it or nor I prefer sweet potato fries, but any fries will do the trick anyway, hehehe.
So, when I saw this set I HAD to HAVE it!! 
I started die-cutting a circle, about 2" in diameter, then I traced it on my 4" square piece of white carstock and started stamping the fries from Planner Yum set, then turning the panel to the right until I completed stamping the fries.
To finish it I started the little hearts in between fries, then colored them with Chameleon Pencils.
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Sassy Lazy Thoughts set in Rose Ink.
I sponged the sentiment part with Distress Ink, then die-cut the pie with circle dies and added an scalloped stitched circle behind.
After the card was put on the card base I added Clear Stickles to hearts and fries.

 Here is the card! I love it  :)


Hello friend
This card was super easy to put together. Started stamping the pretty daisy from Delightful Daisy on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, then die-cut with coordinated die.
The background piece created with a Chevron Stencil and clear embossing paste that I added a couple of drops of red ink.
The sentiment was stamped in a piece of black cardstock and die-cut using circle scalloped stitched die.
Finally, added clear and purple sequins, and Stickles
Card size is 5" square.


 You can't choose
This card was a lot of fun to make, hehehehe. I used the flower and heart from Sassy Family Set and started stamping them from the middle and moving up and down 0.5 ", using your MISTI makes the work a lot easier. After stamping the panel, I colored the images and background with Spectrum Noir Markers, after that I covered the hearts with Clear Stickles and flower centers withRed Ruby Liquid Pearls, set aside to dry and die-cut the panel with rectangle stitched dies.
Stamped the sentiment in St. Valentine StazOn, die-cut the sentiment and a background piece and added to card base.
