Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello friends!! Stopping by to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. It is always something to be thankful and grateful for. I will say I am thankful and grateful for my family, my church family, my closest friends, my Physical Therapy family (now). To the latter, goodness, I would have never thought in a million I will need their services, and here I am now, dealing with 3X a week of therapy, getting my legs stronger again and walking funny, still in pain and sometimes a bit depressed, BUT thankful to have so many people around me helping me and offering me a hand.

Let me share with a couple of cards I made using Crafter's Companion Autumn Collection, perfect for this season's cards.
I made 2 sets, 6 cards each set. 
 Set 1


Hope you like them!
Have an amazing day!

Where in the world is Giovana??

Hello my friends! How are you all doing? I hope you are doing really good! Well, I have been absent for a while, my November 1st post was scheduled in October, anyways, last October 31st, I was doing my regular stuff, working and everything and my calf muscle decided to tear and change my schedule {insert sad face}. Since that day I have not been able to walk, crutches are not fun and my life is quite boring and I get a little bit stressed and depressed.
I have never had any major problems with my legs, so it is amazing how much I need my legs. Anyway, I can't be in my craft room since I need to have my leg up, I have few things in my dining room and I will try to get crafty soon.
Me on Nov 3rd, my birthday. 
Anyways, let me show you a couple of projects I made for Crafter's Companion HSN show (last Tuesday show), sadly my projects didn't make it to the show, but just in case you got some of the amazing products, I hope these can give you some inspiration.

These cards are showcasing the new foil transfers!! They are so cute and very easy to use.

Submitting these projects to Word Art Wednesday Challenge: Anything goes.

Hope you like them!
Have a great day!

Technique Junkies November Release!!

Hello friends!! Welcome to another amazing Technique Junkies Release!! Every month I say the same, but this month's release is amazing!!

If you have arrived here from Vicki's blog, you are in the right place, if not please visit the Technique Junkies blog for the perfect line up. 

Project #1: This card uses 2 new stamps, the beautiful "Linen Dots" background and this sentiment that I personally love very much, it is called "Stay Humble".
Details: The background image was stamped on a piece of white cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink, add white embossing powder and heat set. After that I sponged the image with Tater Rose and Spun Sugar. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Jet Black Ink, then die-cut it with this die, also die-cut a piece of pink cardstock to add it behind the sentiment. Added few stitches on the right and left side to hold it better.
As a final touch, added silver thread, a paper flower and few pearls.


Project #2: Coffee lovers, you are going to love this new stamp!! This new stamp is called "Cups 'n Mugs" and it is the perfect image for your coffee, tea, hot chocolate projects. The sentimes is called "Buy Coffee"
Details: For this project I stamped the background on a piece of watercolor paper, stamped the image using my MISTI for perfect impression in Versamark Watermark ink, added white embossing powder and then heat set. After that, I tapped Sepia Color Burst and misted it, added a little more and misted until I got it the way I wanted it. Stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum in Versamark Watermark and Gold Embossing powder and heat set it, then die-cut it using a circle die. I added stitches to the left side of the sentiment to be sure it stays in place. Finally, I added few sequins and a couple of  coffee wood veneers to embellish the card.

Now, you should go and visit Chris' beautiful projects!!

Also, don't forget you get a 15% off in all the November release, offer valid until November 8th!

Merry Christmas card set.

Hello everyone! Happy Friday or as I call it "Fri-YAY"!!! I am planning a crafty weekend, hopefully my shoulder will not bother me much and I can finish everything I am planning to do.
Anyways, have you seen the new Concord &9th release? Oh my goodness, I honestly wanted everything! I got part of the new release, I don't usually buy a lot of stamps, but I couldn't pass this release {wink, wink}.
This is what I got, and let me show you what I made with 2 of the stamps and 1 die set.

For this set, I used the new Plaid Background stamp, the sentiment is from "Christmas Cheer Turnabout stamp" and the pretty "Ribbon Banner Die".
Backgrounds were stamped in different color inks, the sentiment was stamped in versamark Watermark and added brown embossing powder to the banner.
Also, a great and fast way to mass produce this set is using your MISTI!!
As a final touch die-cut boughs using "Take a bough Die" set, added a red bow and sequins.

It didn't take me too long to make this pretty set, and you can do it too!!

Hope you like them and give then a try!
Have a fantastic day!

In Everything Give Thanks!

Hello friends! Fall is here, pretty leave colors, amazing weather (I am a fall weather person), pies and great bakes! Thanksgiving is just around corner, and what a better occasion to send a special card to your special people using the new Give Thanks stamp.

So today, I have a quick tutorial for you, so let's get started.
  • Start dusting little bits of Color Burst powders onto a piece of watercolor paper, then mist the cardstock until you like the result, set aside to air dry or use you heat gun.
  • After that, stamp image in jet Black Stazon Ink using your MISTI, it will take 2 or 3 pressures to get a goo impression (Remember watercolor cardstock is not as smooth as regualr cardstock)
  • After that, stamp the image in Versamark Watermark ink, then add Clear Embossing powder and heat set. (This give your image a shinier look) 
  • Finally, die-cut the stamp piece and adhere it to a Kraft card base, add white and patterned paper panel and a scallop border. Add ribbon and dew drops.

And just in case you want to get any of the wonderful technique Junkies Stamps, you can use this code to get 10% off (excludes Ocotber release)

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Best Wishes

Hello friends! Today, I want to share a card that it is not your regular Holiday/Christmas card, the last few years I have been "late/very late" sending my Christmas cards, so why not sending a "Happy New Year " card!! This sentiment from Technique Junkies is perfect for that. {wink, wink}

This card was super easy to put together, here I use one of the sentiments from "Gift of Christmas" set.
  • For this project you will need a piece of Coastal blue cardstock, Snow acetate and a snowy die-cut (or you can hand cut a snowy hill)
  • Stamp the sentiment on the die-cut , then ink all the edges of the little houses with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere metallic tape on the bottom.
  • Adhere panels on a white card base, add a gold snowflake and your card is done!!

Easy peasy, right?
If you like this sentiment or more stamps , get them HERE, also don't forget to add this code to your shopping cart and get a 10% off (excludes October release)
Hope you like it.
Have a fantastic day!

Let it Snow.

Hello friends!! Happy Monday to you all. Hope you are having an amazing day. Today I want to share a super cool Christmas card. Last week Crafter's Companion was on HSN and this beautiful Create a Card Die was sold out, I really hope more come soon, but if you got one, here it is an idea on what to do with it.

For this project I used the "Sparkling Snowflakes" and "Circle Swing Base Die" , I used Kraft Cardstock for the card base and die-cut the under panel in Metallic red and the top panels in Metallic Gold. I also added a white snowflake on the side. This snowflake is from the Contemporary Christmas Collection.

I was thinking a family picture can be added in the circle part, that would be so cute that way, also you can make one panel without the decorative die-cut so you have space to write something or stamp a sentiment.

Entering this project to Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Christmas.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!
