Hello friends!! Another year just went by, now we are getting ready to start a brand new one and hope a much better one.
From my side, my crafting year has been great, up and downs as always, by I met new crafty people, made new friends and got into amazing Design Teams!
On the personal side, I was able to go to Peru and see my family after almost 13 years!! We, as a family, spent an entire month having a blast! I ate a bit too much and got sick, lol, but after a day of rest and chicken soup I was up and running again!!

My wish for next year is to craft more and stress less!! Send more cards and meet more friends!

Take the Step.

Hello friends! How are you doing today? Hope your holiday celebrations were amazing!! Now, we can start relaxing a bit. I  am getting ready to close the craft room door for a few days and enjoy movies and relax while I can.
Today, I have a non-holiday card. Probably by now you are done with your cards and want something different, well, you are in the right place :)

For today's project I used this beautiful stamp "Take the Step", distress inks and my MISTI! Super easy project, love how it turned out, I think I will frame it.
  • Start stamping the top part of the image in black ink.
  •  Clean up your stamps, then stamp the whole image in Versamark Watermark ink , then add clear embossing powder.
  •  Use Distress Inks to add more dimension to the project. I used Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mustard Seed and Wild Honey Distress Inks.

Die-cut the image and adhere to a couple of coordinated cardstock panels. Card size is 6" square.

You can use my TJ10Giovana code to get a 10% off .

Hope you like it.
Have a great day!

Poinsettia Corner Cards

Hello friends! T I want to share with you a couple of cards, both similar, easy and very elegant! For this project I used Poinsettia Corner from Tutti Designs, this die is very delicate and elegant.

TUTTI-120 Poinsettia Corner
So, let's get started:
  • Die-cut the beautiful Poinsettia Corner in Metallic and Glitter Red Cardstock.
  •  Cut a card base 11" x 5.5" and scored at 5.5" (here I used White and Gold cardstock for card bases) and cut card fronts 5" square in Gold and Clear Vellum.
  •  Stamp sentiment on vellum, score 1/8" on each side. Then, adhere the poinsettia, I used my MISTI and as you can see on the picture I used the 1/4"corner to align the die and get the perfect position.
  •  Finally, adhere the panels to card bases and add red sequins.

Hope you like my project!
Have a fantastic day!

Last minute Christmas cards

Hello friends! Today, sharing your last minute Christmas cards and tags too! I hope all your shopping is done and all your card were mailed, right? Yeah, me either, hehehehe and just in case you are in need of a quick idea to make 3 cards + 2 tags with 1 background stamp, today is your lucky day!!
Yes!! I used this super cute from Concord & 9th "Christmas Cheer Turnabout" , so let's get started!
  • Starting with stamping the Christmas Cheer Turnabout, using your MISTI,  on a piece of cream cardstock in Versamark Watermark ink. (click on the picture for a bigger one)
  •  After stamping the 4 sides, add gold embossing powder and heat set.
  •  Using stitched dies or any rectangle and a square die, die-cut the background piece. At first, I just wanted the 3 big pieces, but then I have a "great moment" and decided to die-cut the little pieces as well for little tags {win, win}
  •  Stamp sentiment on bottom part of cards in green and red ink.

Here are the cards!! Love how they turned out! I added gold snowflakes and bough to embellish the cards, both from "Take a Bough Die"
 And here you have the 2 little tags, I kept them super simple, just added snowflakes and bough to the corner, I used a brad I found on my stash (do you still use brads?)

I hope you like these projects! It took me 40 minutes to create this set, not too bad, right?

Entering this set to Where Creativity Meets C9 : Anything goes

Have a fantastic day!!

2017 Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!

Hello friends!! I am glad I had the time to make a project for this time season Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!! Last Saturday I went shopping and stopped at Hobby Lobby, I found a cute selection of Coffee related products! I wanted to buy everything, LOL.

My card is very simple and cute {wink, wink}, here are few details I would love to share with you.

  • First, stamp the coffee background image, this one is Cups 'n Mugs from Technique Junkies on a piece of white cardstock in red ink. I used my MISTI to restamp the image to get a perfect coverage. After that, leaving your stamp on your MISTI, stamp the image with Versamark Watermark ink and add clear embossing powder.
  • After that, sponge your piece with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the bottom in red ink. I used one of the sentiments from Gift of Christmas set (I covered part of sentiment with washi tape so I could stamp "Merry Christmas" only)
  • Die-cut the background piece with Rectangle Stitched dies and a Rectangle Scalloped Stitched in Green Metallic cardstock to add behind the image.
  • Embellish card with die-cut boughs. 
  • Add little white dots with a white pen on the kraft cardstock base.

Hope you like my project!
Have a fantastic day!

Merry Christmas card set.

Hello friends! Sharing today my first post as a Design team member for Tutti Designs! YAY, super excited to be part of this amazing group!
So let's get started, for today I have a set of Christmas card, super simple and easy to mass produce , but with the WOW factor {wink, wink} 
for this project I used Nesting Stitched Rectangles and Nativity Ornament.

TUTTI-217 Nesting Stitched RectanglesTUTTI-374 Nativity Ornament

I started selecting Gold and Copper Metallic and Glitter Cardstock.
 Die-cut the ornament as well as the metallic and glitter cardstock. 
 Mount a layer of rectangle stitched metallic cardstock with a piece of glitter cardstock. Then, add Nativity Ornament with foam tape.
 Close up
 Here is a picture of the Cards

Now, I have a bonus project for you, I made a super cute ornament using just the Nativity Ornament die-cut piece.
For this project I die-cut the Nativity Ornament 4 times, then I glue them together, added ribbon and ready to be hung up on my Christmas tree.

Hope you like my projects!
Have a fantastic day!
