Hello friends! I am posting a little late, well a lot later than usual, I had a super busy day today and I was thinking to post earlier, but the day came too short for me to do everything I wanted, oh just one of those days, so before going to bed I want to share with you this super cute card I made with stamps from Latina Crafter.

The image is from  Garden Fairy and the sentiment is from Mi flor favorite set.

The image was colored with Inktense Pencils. I die-cut the red flower and leaves from felt and then added paper flowers.  A little wood veneers was added to the corner and it's from the  Banners and geotags collection.



The sentiment says "Friend" referring to a female.

I used the sketch from March Sketch Challenge over and Latina Crafter and the theme from Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Mother's Day or Special girl


 
 
Hope you like it!
Have a great night!

Hello!!

Hello friends! Happy Friday! Today I have a super cute card using this new image from Humphrey Collection from Crafter's Companion USA.
The image was colored with Spectrum Noir markers, added few sequins and card was ready!! I have to confess that the color combo was an idea of the little girl I babysit, she pretty much directed me on the colors she wanted me to use, you can see that the legs are pretty much leggings and the socks are the skin ;) Either way, she was very happy with the result and me too!!

Here are the details:
  • Make card base from White cardstock. A2 size.
  • Mat a piece of Cardstock and Patterned Paper(from Splendid ), add stitches.
  • Stamp image on Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock, color image with Spectrum Noir Markers, here is the list of markers I used:
    •  Elephant: IG1, IG2, IG3
    •  Dress: LV1, LV2, LV3
    •  Wings and Legs: PP1, PP2
    •  Wand: GB1, GB37
    •  Shoes, Tiara: DR2, DR4, DR67
    •  Confetti, Ribbon, Head flower: GB3
  • Cut image and mat it with red cardstock, add stitches.
  • Stamp sentiment on white cardstock, color piece with Mustard Seed Ink. Die-cut piece with a star die.
  • Add twine and paper flower.
  • Add sequins.
  • Finally cover star from wand, confetti and crown with 3D Crystal Lacquer, add clear glitter. Set aside to dry. 



For this project, I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday:

    Top Dog Dies and Echo Park Paper Blog Hop


    Hello friends! Welcome to Top Dog Dies and Echo Park Paper Blog Hop! Both Design Teams are joining today to bring fun projects.

    This is the project I have for you "An Easter Bunny decoration". Echo Park Paper provided us the "Splendid Sunshine Collection", beautiful papers and stickers!

    The tree was a little time consuming, but I had fun die-cutting eggs while watching TV with my daughter. So, I die-cut eggs from Basket and Egg set and Bunny and Eggs, I die-cut about 95 in total, then I glued the matching papers together, so they can look the same on both sides :)
    Then, I die-cut the bunnies using the pink and blue papers, for the basket I used cork. I have quite few close-up pictures below with more details.

     
    Decoration set-up, I think it turned up pretty cute.
     
     Close -up of the eggs.
     
     
    My daughter baked chocolate cupcakes for the very first time, all by herself, we decorated some of them, super cute!!
     
     Peek-a-boo!! Can you see me?  I think the bunnies are adorable. The decoration around the pot is a sticker border.
     
     The pot was resting on a Bella Doily, more pretty papers from Echo Park Paper!

     
    A better look of the cork basket. I die-cut 2 baskets, added the little eggs in between. 

    Now, It's your time to hop along!! Don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win the cute Bunny and Eggs die set!!
