Thank You

Hello friends!! How are you doing today/tonight? Hopefully you are having/had a fabulous day. I started this post earlier today (around noon), but couldn't finish it because the little ones woke up at the same time and my busy schedule started again.

Anyway, I want to share with you about a new stamp company, it is called Concord & 9th and it has super cute stamps!! I recently purchased 3 sets and today had the chance to play with one of them while the little ones were napping, this one is called Painted Thank You and it is super cute and fun stamp.

I used the embossing resist technique for this card, the colorful background was created with my Color Burst Powders, that is something you need to get for sure, they are so much to play with ;)

Here are the details:
  • Make a card base from white cardstock. A2 size.
  • Cut a piece of watercolor paper, size 4.75" x 3.5". 
  • Stamp image in Versamark Watermark ink, add white embossing powder and heat set! Then, mist your watercolor paper with water and sprinkle your Color Burst Powder, here I used Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow and Ultramarine Blue. (I got mine on Blitsy)
  • Stamp the little flower in a circle tag, add lace tape and silver thread.
  • Adhere panel to card base.

Hope you like it!!
Have a fantastic day/night!

Three cards, one die.

Hello friends! Happy Wednesday to you all.Today I have 3 cards for you using 1 die! I made these cards some time ago but haven't had time to show them to you, what's wrong with me? {wink, wink}

Anyway, for this project I used a Create a Card Die, this one is called "Daisy Dreams", for this project I die-cut the Daisy Dreams die in Pink Pearl Shimmering Cardstock, then cut the lager piece in 2.

Here is a view of the cards made with just 1 die!! You can do so much with them!

Card #1: For this card I used the upper part of the die. Created a window with rectangle dies and added white and  pink pearl panels behind. Stamped the sentiment from Sentimentals Friends and Family set in St. Valentine StazOn ink, the little flowers are from Four Seasons Die set. Added pearls.

Card #2:For this card I used the bottom part of the die, just added a Rose Pearl piece behind the die part, scored the lines around the window piece and mounted it to a white card base. Stamped the sentiment from Sentimentals Friends and Family Set. Added pearls.

Card #3: This last uses the circle die-cut part. I die-cut a window using circle and scallop circles in Rose Pearl Shimmering cardstock to create a shaker part. Inside I added sequins and rhinestones, added little flowers and leaves from Four Seasons Die set and stamped the sentiment also from Sentimentals Family and Friends Set.

Skipping Stones Design Tip/Technique Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Skipping Stones Tip/Technique Blog Hop!! I have a tip for you today!

I used a whole bunch of Memento Dew Drops I have in a little box that doesn't get too much love, I thought why not use this super cute dandelion image in different colors, at first I wasn't too sure, but at the end I loved the result!!

For my project I used Dandelion Dreams
Here is a close up of the image , doesn't look lovely? 
I used Memento Angel Pink, Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, Sweet Plum, Lady Bug, Love Letter, Dessert Sand, Dandelion, Cabana (SU)

I stamped the saying on a same cardstock color as my card base.

Coffee is always better with a friend

Hi friends! Sorry I've been MIA, I am super busy working on samples for an upcoming event, plus family and work I have enough time to sleep, LOL.

Today, I want to share with you a super easy and fun project. It can be a super cute present, just add a cup of coffee and voila!

For this project I used the frame from March kit and the stamp Coffee is better with a friend.

Few days ago I got this new to me Gansai Tambi watercolors! I am learning how to use them, but I love how vibrant they are!
So I wanted to use them plus a piece of watercolor paper.

Then, I stamped the sentiment in Stazon Jet Black ink and my MISTI for perfect coverage. 

Here is the piece already with the watercolors, I used yellows and reds. 

As a final touch, I added Memento Luxe Wedding Dress to the frame, just bits here and there.

And this is the result!! It took me only 10 minutes to create this.
