Ombre Father's Day Card.

Hello friends! Today bringing you a super cute, quick and simple Father's Day Card!! I made this tutorial for CutCardStock, but in case you haven't seen it there, I am bringing it to you here {wink, wink}

I selected the colors of cardstock I wanted to use, since my card is a nautical I chose blue tones. In order from picture starting from top: Basis NavyBasis BlueStardream Metallic BluebellBasis Aqua and Stardream Metallic Aquamarine.

Then, I cut 1" stripes of each color and adhered them to a piece of cardstock 3.75" x 5"

After that, I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Watermark Ink, added White embossing powder and heat set.

I die-cut 4 anchors in Stardream Metallic Fine Gold Cardstock, then glued them together to create a thick anchor.

I matted the panel piece to a slightly bigger piece of Basis Natural Cardstock. Added the gold amchor and light blue twine to it.

Finally, I added blue sequins to give it a shine look. Added panel to a Basis White Cardstock Card base.

And this is how the card looks like, I think it's super easy and you can cut several strips of cardstocks and create several cards in not time.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!!

Kind of Amazing!!

Hello friends! Here I am posting a super cute card I made a couple of days ago, just for fun!! My mojo has been suffering low energy problems, LOL but I think I am ready to craft again.
I have few yard chores to finish before I run to the craft room and enjoy my quiet time, no work for me today, so I planned yard work in advance, sadly it's getting too windy! I hope I can get all the things I plan for today before noon.

Anyway, this is the sweet card I made, inspired by the Fusion Challenge colors!

For my card I used the super sweet set from Wplus9 "Unforgettable", colored the image with Spectrum Aqua Markers and then added bits of Wink of Stella to the grass, elephant and balloon.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

La base de mi tarjeta es cartulina crema, con un panel en crema al cual le agregué embossing lines en todos los lados. El sentiment lo estampé en tinta roja para crear un toque contraste, luego agregué cinta roja y una flor blanca.

Esta segunda tarjeta usé el sello "Vive, Ama, Sueña" y los nuevos papeles de Abbondanza Fiesta que llevan el mismo nombre del set. Usé colores bastantes suaves, agregué costuras para darle un toque extra especial en combinación de los papeles, últimamente me encanta la combinación de plomo (gris) y amarillo.

New Create a Card Dies

Hello friends!! Sorry I have been MIA again, it was my time to get sick(er), the cough doesn't want to leave me, if you have a recipe you would like to share with me, I would appreciate it big time!
Anyway, today it is time to show you a new collection of "Create a Card Dies" by Crafter's Companion. They are beautiful, easy to use and you can make cards in seconds!! These dies don't have cutting edges, so you can create a perfect front for your A2 cards or change them a bit, or use just the saying, the possibilities are endless.

This is the new collection, you are going to love it!!

And let me show you a couple of projects I made with these new dies.

For my first card I used the CAC With Love Die. This card took a little bit than few seconds to finish, BUT I love the results!! It's so pretty IRL.
Here are the details:

  • Die-cut and emboss the CAC With Love Die in Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock. Without removing the cardstock from the die, stencil it with red ink, be sure you add a little pressure to ink up all parts nice and deep. Remove piece from die and set aside to dry.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece in red cardstock and carefully remove and keep the heart area (center)
  • Finally die-cut and emboss a piece in gold cardstock. Keep your pieces on die (i will tell you why in a second ;)
  • Glue white die piece on a bigger piece of red cardstock. Then glue the red heart pieces, finally apply glue to gold pieces. It's better to keep pieces on die so you know where every piece goes, some are really tiny, that's why I keep all my pieces on the die.
  • Then, add piece to a 5.5" x 5.5" white card base.

My second card really took few minutes to create. Very easy, elegant and feminine.
Here are the details:

  • Create a card base from White cardstock, this one is 4.5" x 5.5".
  • Die-cut and emboss CAC Thank You Die in Pink Pearl Shimmering Cardstock. Glue piece onto card base.
  • Add little flowers and leaves made using Four Seasons Die and Rose Pearl and Green envy Shimmering Cardtock. Add pearls to centers and add them to card.
