Mr & Mrs

Hello friends! Happy Saturday! Hope you are having a relaxing day, that is the plan I have for today. I want to craft and create, I will not worry about meals or laundry, LOL. At least that's my plan, I have to run few errand before, but we'll see if I can work on the things I have planned.

Anyway, I have a super glittery and shiny card for you. The picture doesn't make justice on how glittery the paper is. I created this card for CutCardStock, the charcoal is paper, so I added cardstock to the sides after die-cutting the top.

This is the inside look! 

I also stamped a silver seal to decorate the envelope.

Super easy and fun card!! Also, you have the chance to win some envelopes and seals! Just leave your comment HERE, you have until midnight July 26th!

May your coffee be strong

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday, today I have a couple of cards that I planned to post on Monday, but let's say I have had a couple of so so days and couldn't write the post, so today we will pretend is Monday {wink, wink}

For these 2 cards I used the coffee stamps from Latina Crafter, both say the same in English and Spanish. The cards are super simple, here are the details:

  • Make card base from Kraft cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of white cardstock and die-cut the bottom edge with detail dies. Then use the coffee beans stencil and Vintage Photo distress ink and sponge the panel without touching the die-cut part.
  • Stamp sentiment in Black StazOn ink.
  • Die-cut the splash shape, ink all edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink and adhere it to card with dimensionals.
  • Add a coffee cup wood veneers on top of splash.

Hope you like them!
Have a fantastic day!!
