A Friend like You

Hello friends!! Today I have a super simple and sweet card. Let me tell you a little something about this card. I had in mind something completely different, but my flower didn't turn out the way I wanted, the background was very messy and I was getting ready to toss the piece to the garbage, then I decided to cut out the poppy from Poppy Bouquet and colored it with alcohol markers over the watercolor coloring I did before, then I liked it, hehe.

The oval piece is a leftover from THIS project, were I used the Gingham background, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock in versamark watermark ink, then added white embossing powder and heat set, the sentiment is from Friend Like You.
Finally I added pink sequins and pearls

Remember , you can get all these stamps with a 10% discount using my super duper discount code TJ10Giovana

Happy Father's Day!

Hello friends! Hope you are having a fantastic Father's Day!
I have been super busy with family, work and some craft stuff, I am a little late posting this card, but I hope you all are having/had a great day

For this project I used the new "Anchors Background" and "Happy Father's Day" stamps.

  • Start stamping the "Anchors Background" on a piece of white cardstock in Blue Ink, then wipe your stamp and ink it up with Versamark Watermark Ink on top, then add Clear Embossing powder and heat set. Your MISTI is a great tool to do the perfect stamping.
  • After that, apply Broken China Distress Ink all over the image. Trim image, I did 3.75" x 5"
  • Stamp "Happy Father's Day" sentiment on a piece of white cardstock. Adhere it to background piece.
  • Adhere panel to a white card base. Tie twine around the sentiment.
  • Add a stamped or die-cut anchor.
You can use my TJ10Giovana code to get a 10% discount on your order.

Hope you like this project.
Have an amazing day!

I have 3 projects for you today! Super fun stamps and dies! 

Let's get started.

Party Time
For this project I started stamping the balloons and flowers from "Baby Rocker" clear set on a piece of white cardstock, then added a couple of strips of Rust Chequered Washi Tape , then die-cut the panel.
Then, I die-cut one of the little images from this super cute "Card Sheet Stuffed Animals"design paper, just added a couple of die-cut pieces from pink and red cardstock.
Super simple card, but cute at the same time.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!
For this card I started stamping the cloud, several times, from "Baby Rocker" clear stamp on a piece of watercolor piece of paper in Broken China Distress Ink, then colored them with Faded Jean Distress Inks and Blue Sparkle Marker.
After it dried, I stamped the sentiment from "Best Wishes" Clear set in Stazon Ganache ink.
Then I stamped the balloons on white cardstock in red ink and cut them out.
Finally, I die-cut the bunny from Caboodle Die Set, then colored it with Pink Sparkle marker.
Added the panel to a pink card base.

You Are Great
I started cutting a piece of "Baby Rattle Gold" design paper, 5.5" x 5.5", then I die-cut a square window in the middle of the paper.
Die-cut a frame, added foam tape underneath and adhered it to the design paper.
Die-cut the animals from Caboodle Die Set using watercolor paper, then sponged them with Distress inks. Added the die-cuts behind the window. Added tulle and ribbon to create the curtains. Added a piece of wood paper behind, then added the panel to the 6" square white card base. 
Stamped the banner and sentiment from "Best Wishes" clear set on a little piece from one of the design papers.
