Dot Snowflake and a little Giveaway!!

Hello friends! Happy Monday to you all.
Today I have another card using stencils, this time I used this super cool Dot Snowflake Stencil by A Colorful Life Designs!
I used White Embossing Paste mixed with Gold Shimmering Bliss Topper, then applied onto a piece of watercolor paper and set aside to dry.
After it was dry, I sprayed with more Gold and Harvest Sunset Shimmering Bliss.
After that, I trimmed the panel to fix into an A2 size card.
Added a piece of gold cardstock, twine and die-cut pieces in gold and red from Take a Bough Die Set.

Here you can take a close up of the beautiful shimmer the Shimmering Bliss adds and the cute dies.

Now, for the little giveaway!
I have an extra copy of Quirky Christmas Tree, if you would like to win it, just leave me a comment here telling me is you make your own Christmas cards (and sends them out too ;) )
For an extra chance, visit the store and tell me what is your favorite stencil
Psstt, more wonderful stencils coming soon, you are gonna love them!

Have a wonderful day!!

Hello friends! I am a little late with my day 4 of "Seven Days of Holidays"
This time I have a super cute and easy card to make using an adorable stencil and dies! No stamps needed.
For this card I used "Pine Tree" Stencil (only $3.99) by A Colorful Life Designs. 
In case you haven't checked the stencils in there, you should, they are amazing, plus the best quality you can find anywhere!

Then, I used a fine black multiliner pen to trace one side of the trees. Die-cut the panel with a scallop stitched die.
I die-cut the JOY word in gold paper and adhered it with foam tape.

I splashed a mix of  White Acrylic paint and water to the trees, then I found out the paint and the ink was mixing and becoming green dots (oops, from  mistakes I learn) so I added little drops of White Nuvo Crystal.

Hope you like it!
Have a fantastic day!

Impression Obsession Challenge: Autumn Colors

Hello friends!! Hope you all are having an amazing day!!
It is time for a new Impression Obsession Challenge "Autumn Colors" 

To enter the challenge go to the  Impression Obsession blog (all the details can be found there!). A random challenge card will be selected to be showcased on the IO blog AND you can enter to win a $25 gift certificate to IO just by playing! (IO stamps need to be used).

For my card I used Being a Friend sentiment and the leaves are from Wind Swept Leaves.
I created my card thinking in the bright yellow and orange colors Fall brings (although this part of the PNW is pretty much Winter season, lol)

This card is 4.5" x 4.5" square.
I stamped the Wind Swept Leaves on the from panel in Mist Ink.
I stamped the leaves on an extra piece of White cardstock in Wild Honey and Mustard Seed Distress Inks, then added Sienna Ink to the edges, then fussy cut them
Created a panel blending Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide and Wild Honey Distress, then stamped the Being a Friend sentiment on it in Chocolate Ink.
Die-cut panel, then die-cut a frame from white cardstock and adhered it to it with foam tape.
Adhered the leaves and added twine and clear rhinestones to embellish.

Hope you like my project.
Have a wonderful day!

Merry Christmas

Hello friends!!
Welcome to Day 3 of Holiday Projects, I think I am doing pretty well, lol.
I have projects for 7 days and being on day 3 is such a cool feeling ;)

For my project I used stamps from Technique Junkies, used the brand new Carved Relief Background, the berries are from Seasons Greetings Set and the sentiment is from Merry Christmas 2.

Stamp the background on a piece of white cardstock in Chocolate Ink, then stamp on top with Versamark Watermark and add Clear Embossing Powder.
Blend brown ink colors on panels, then add Dazzle Shimmering Bliss Topper, set aside to dry.
Stamp berries on a piece of watercolor paper in Chocolate Ink, color image with Color Burst, fuzzy cut image, then add Nuvo Drops, set aside.
Die-cut background panel and adhere it to a white card base with foam tape.
Stamp sentiment on a white piece of cardstock and adhere it to card.
Add berry image with foam tape.
Add a little bit of gold thread behind the berries.

Card done!!

Sending Cheer

Hello friends! 
I have a super fun and easy card to make, I think this card could be perfect for Fall or Winter, to be honest in this part of the PNW we are getting 22 degrees in the early mornings and we get no more than 39-40 degrees in the afternoon, so it is cold and it is Fall!!

I love the PNW, it's beautiful here, and not I am not talking about Seattle, lol. I live far away from the city, which makes it a lot better. 
I don't know if you knew it, but I am from Peru, exactly from Lima, and we don't get this kind of Fall, actually right now over there is Spring (South Hemisphere) and it is not warm yet!!

Anyway, I have a fun project for you, who doesn't like a little bit of cheer, right?
I used this beautiful Layered Pinecone set from Impression Obsession.
I used my Mini Misti and stamped the pinecone twice using Mist, Beige, Sienna, Chocolate and Black Inks, then die-cut the image using coordinate die.

I created a super diluted background using a piece of watercolor paper with Liquid Metals: Metallic Saffron and Iron Oxide and lots of water!! 
The shimmer from these 2 liquid metals is beautiful!!
Stamped the sentiment from same set in Chocolate Ink.
Die-cut the panel using the frame from Bunny Frame Set

Added watercolor panel to a white card base.
Die-cut Arched Leaves in Vellum and Gold cardstock and adhered them to panel, then adhered one pinecone direct to panel and the other one used foam adhesive.
Covered the pinecones with Wink of Stella.
Finally added copper sequins and little dots of White Nuvo Drops.

Hope you like this project!
Have a wonderful day!!
