Get Well Soon

Hello friends! Happy Tuesday to you. Today I have a special card requested by my husband for one of his co-workers. Last week he asked me for a Get well card at 9:30 pm, of course I said I can make one but he wanted one right away, sadly I was too tired and it was too late to craft (at least for me), so next day I made this card for the officer who will be out of duty for awhile. That's why the saying inside {wink, wink} again requested by my husband.

Since I didn't have any stamp with that saying I used my Concord & 9th stamps "Sophisticated Script Uppercase and Lowercase" and I love it! This card is pretty easy to make, I call it "Back to basics"
For the front I used my Wood Grain embossing folder on a piece of cream cardstock and then sponged the piece with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

To create the backgrounds, I used Tangerine and Chartreuse Color Burst for one BG and Yellow Ochre and Fuchsia for the other one.

Best mom in the world

Hello friends! I am back! I am so sorry I have been gone for more then a week, goodness I got really really sick, first I got a virus then an infection that hit me so hard that I couldn't do a thing, from the 2+ weeks I got sick I actually cooked 4 days only, Subway was our friend and the husband cooked few meals, leftovers are always a plus!

Anyway, I am feeling 90% better, so it is time to start creating again! Latina Crafter has a new sketch and/or twist challenge up, so hope you can participate too. You don't have to use Latina Crafter stamps/dies to participate ;)

And this is the card I created. This time I used both the sketch and the twist together (most of the time I use one or the other).
Here are the directions:
  • Start creating a card base from White cardstock. 5.5" square.
  • Cut a panel from yellow cardstock, 5.25" square and patterned paper, this paper coordinated perfectly with the colors from the challenge, stamp flowers and swirls from  La vida está llena de bendiciones set on paper in Versamark ink and white embossing powder. This is a Ken Oliver paper. Stitch together.
  • Stamp Celebrando a mamá on a piece of white cardstock in Versamark ink , add white embossing powder and heat set. Add distress inks to show more the heat embossed sentiment.
  • Add a scallop border to sentiment and add t panel and add stitches.
  • Adhere panel to card base, add a little strip of Coastal Pearl cardstock and embellish with pearls and sequins.
