I made this cute card using the set Peregrinos/Pilgrims from Latina Crafter, this set has the sentiments in Spanish and English.
I colored the images with Spectrum Noir Blendable Pencils, then cut them out. I used the Rays stencil from Tim Holtz and Distress Inks.
Then, I die-cut grass from patterned paper and adhere one direct to card base, then added the Pilgrims and turkey with foam adhesive, then added an extra die-cut grass.
Finally, I die-cut a banner, stamped the coordinated banner border, then stamped the sentiment.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Tuesday! Hope your day is full of joy and great things! Today I have a very simple yet elegant card for you. I used the snowflake die set from Top Dog Dies! I wanted to keep it simple, my original idea, was not this one, I wanted to do something more like "inlaid" design, but while playing with the die-cuts I like the white on white design, so I kept it that way.

I used "White, Silver, Red" courtesy of the Fusion Challenge.

Here are the details:
  • Make a card base from White cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a panel from White cardstock 3.75" x 5".
  • Die-cut snowflakes (x2) from Top Dog Dies Snowflake trio Set in White cardstock. 
  • Die-cut Top Dog Dies Happy Holidays in Red cardstock.
  • Create a layout for your sentiment and snowflakes and adhere them to card panel.
  • Tie on silver organza ribbon.
  • Add pearls to snowflakes.
  • Add panel to card base with foam adhesive.


Hope you like it! A very simple card, super easy to mass produce and also very elegant.

Also, don't forget about Top Dog Dies Black Friday Super Sale!!

You are special.

Hello friends! Happy Friday. Today, I have a couple of cards for you using brand new stamps, just released few days ago by Latina Crafter.

For this card I used the new stamp Nena con Banner (Banner Girl) and the sketch from Viva La Verve Week 2.
This card is a 5" square card. The patterned paper is so pretty and part of the September Kit. The Cherish doily is from Top Dog Dies. The cute image was colored with Spectrum Noir Markers, the flower was made with these dies, added a big twine bow and pearls and the card was done :)


The sentiment says: You are special

===============================================

For this card I went super CAS, I used the new stamp set Disfruta (Enjoy) and the sketch from Retro Sketches. 
I used the little flower and repeat stamping it in different colors (All Memento Ink), then I stamp the sentiment in St. Valentine Archival Ink. Finally, I added White Opal Liquid Pearls.


The sentiment says: Enjoy this moment

Craft room transformation

Hello friends! How are you today? I don't usually post on Sundays, but today I am making an exception. Last few weeks has been very stressful, a lot of things going on here, family members in Peru got really sick, 2 of them got in serious condition, Tuesday night I couldn't sleep and first thing I did before starting my day was to check on Facebook and found out my cousin passed away, I was so sad, then while talking to my sister about few things and how my dad was doing (since he didn't sleep much staying at the hospital until 5:30 am), she got a phone call letting the family know my aunt passed away too. My heart sank at that very moment. I just wanted to travel and be there with my family. Hard to deal with grieving sometimes, but I am doing better.

November 3rd was my birthday, my husband birthday present was a white counter  for my craft room so I could have a bigger desk. I packed everything and move boxes to my daughter's play room. I thought it would be done in no time, but it took a lot longer than I expected.

So today, I have an evolution of my craft room! I would say I have downsized a lot, I have tons of thing to sell and giveaway.

Craft room 2010-12

Craft room 2012-14: I bought an old computer desk at a yard sale for $8.00! I painted it white and used it until 2 weeks ago! Nothing fancy, but it worked out pretty well for me.


This is how my craft room area looks like now:

 Well, this old desk could hold the universe, LOL. You can not imagine how many boxes of stuff I got from this desk!!

Check out the new desk!!




I love my new desk!! More counter space and believe it or not, I clean up after a project is finished.

Sharing this with my crafty friends at the Moxie Fab Blog! And yes, my craft desk is clean, yay!

Ok, before I leave, why not be forever friends?! Yes! I love this very simple card I made with Latina Crafter products. I die-cut the "amigas die" 4 times and glue them together and stamped the sentiment "para siempre" in Black Archival ink. The leaves and dots are from a promotion set. Love the color combo, I think less is more sometimes.


Well, this post is a little bit long, hope you didn't mind.
Have a great day!
Many blessings!

Sweet 'n Sassy November Release!

Hello friends! It's time for another fun Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Release! This month we have a variety of stamps and dies plus the bundles from the Sweet Club will be available for you too!

Let me show you the projects I have for you today.

Birthday Word Die and Companion Words Set. I combined these 2 to create a couple of birthday card, two very different styles.



Happy Birthday: I posted this on the SNSS blog yesterday. This card was super easy to make, with a little bit of mixed media touch. The sentiment was stamped in Black Archival ink, I die-cut the Birthday word in watercolor paper and colored with Distress Inks, then added Crystal Lacquer and sprinkled clear glitter. Super easy and fun!!

Birthday Wishes: This is a very feminine card with a little bit shabby chic touch. For this card I used leftover shabby chic papers I got long time ago, added lace, ribbon, flowers and twine. The papers were zig-zag stitched. I used Grunge Borders set in Versamark ink and then added white embossing powder and heat set. I kept the Birthday word die just plain white to create a contrast. The sentiment was stamped in Brown Archival ink.

Baked for you Set: This is one of the sets that was part of the Sweet Club, I used the super cute sentiment to create this super fun card!!


For the stove I used a polaroid die and used it upside  down, it was created with a couple of pieces chipboard and orange cardstock, hard to see, but I added a piece of film. For the image, I stamped the bunin Memento Tuxedo Blakc and colored it with Spectrum Nor markers. Then, I used a fine black marker and drew the baking sheet and oven rack. After that, I added sequins on the center of the image and added the stove door. Sentiment was stamped in St. Valentine Archival ink. Finally , added ribbon and heart pearls to the stove.

Scripture and Sentiment Companion & Bare Tree Die: I combined these 2 new products to create a monochromatic card, I wanted to keep it simple and elegant. Hope you like it.


I die-cut the bare trees in white cardstock (x2) and 1 in White Metallic Sheet, I also die-cut 1 small tree from this set. The sentiment  was stamped in Brown Archival ink, I created a little hill, added the sentiment on a rectangle piece, then glue the trees, added glitter and silver glass. Finally, I added the rectangle panel with dimensionals to a white card base.
