Hey there!

I am back today to share a card created with a Jane’s Doodles 3″x4″  stamp set called How Sweet072214web_howsweet

 

I created my rainbow popsicle  by using my EK Success Stamp-a-ma-jig and post-it notes to obtain the rainbow effect…

At the end, I added Stickles and Glossy accents to make this image look delicious :) along with patterned paper and stitches…

Hi there!

Very quick today just to share a card I created using a beautiful stamp set by Jane’s Doodles: Pretty Peonies along with my Spellbinders circles . I created this card to participate in the current challenge by Virginia Lu, where the requirement is to use die cuts. I only have basic shapes of die cuts in my stash, so I combined the flower with the circles to create a layered colorful flower. Then, I simply added stitches to keep the layers together and also stamped a simple sentiment… Quite simple, yet fun :)

On another note, I am still working on organize my craft stuff , so I recently bought a Magnetic Die Storage Case by Art Bin….

This plastic case comes with three magnetic sheets, but If you have many die cut sets in your stash, I would definitely recommend you  to buy extra magnetic sheets :)

Happy Monday, everyone!

Here is a card that I created using the current Poppy Sketches Challenge #8 . This card features a pretty sunflower image by Jane’s Doodles and it is included in a set called Autumn Blessings. I paired the image with a sentiment included in a set named Sending Smiles messages by Hero Arts. I also included a cluster of sequins as the center of the sunflower, decorative tape and stitches :)

It’s fun to participate on challenges, just because they give you the little push that sometimes you need to start creating :) There is still time to play along, so here is the required sketch and colors (You can click on the image below to hop over the Poppy Sketches Blog). Of course they have a sponsor for the challenge, this time is Stitchy Bear’s Digi Outlet ….

Happy Friday everyone!

I am back today, really quick, just to share a set of mini Thank You cards that I made to give to some friends. I love creating mini cards, they are easy to make, and they look cute. The butterfly image is by Jane’s Doodles and it is included in a set called Butterflies. I used a double sided patterned paper by Doodlebug Design (Sugar & Spice- Blankie) and I used both sides of the paper  along with white card stock :)

Hey there!

I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend… Mine was great with two days in a row of grilling :) and of course we also enjoyed the fireworks :) Well, this month I won’t have a theme or color combo, just because lately, managing my time has been a challenge for me (Just lately????? lol). So if you don’t see many posts this month  here on my blog, no worries… I am still here,  I am just planning/doing other things here at home,  and also, looking forward to simply enjoy Summer :)

Anyway, here is a card using two sets by Jane’s Doodles: It’s A Guy Thing (background images) and Food on the Go (hamburger and sentiment). The background images were stamped on kraft card stock with white chalk ink, and the hamburger and sentiment with black ink. I colored the image using Copics and I added a detail of patterned paper…. quite simple and easy to make :)

The inspiration of my card of course came from the yummy food we had during the weekend :) and my Larry was more than happy to grill some burgers for us!

Happy Friday, everyone! 

I know, I know… lately,  I haven’t been a good blogger, but I have been super busy :) I want to accomplish too many things at the same time… sorry about that. Anyway, I am back today to present the fabulous June Guest Designer

 • Tiffany Ervin •

IMG_0763
I have known Tiffany’s work since I started blogging :) Tiffany is very creative, she has the ability to combine different elements on her cards and scrapbook pages in an amazing way… Ribbons, gems, patterned papers, stamps… you name it, she can do it! I am very glad that she agreed to create a card for today, so I also asked her to share a little bit about her with us, and this is what she said…

“I have been crafting for about 10 years now, since after the birth of my son in 2004.  I started out as a scrap booker and then learned card making shortly afterwards.  I don’t see myself as having any one particular crafting style.  I love all types of techniques and am always willing to learn new techniques and fine tune the skills I currently have.  I love to dabble in everything from very simple, CAS designs, to paper piecing, layering/textured looks, die-cutting, heat/dry embossing, distressing, coloring, and watercoloring.  Just recently I’ve really loved doodling on my own and painting.  I still have so much to experiment with and hope to expand my skills in the near future….I would love to explore knitting and crocheting as well.

My most favorite themes on any design would have to be Vintage and I love soft, delicate/romantic colors.  I’m obsessed with flowers – you will most likely see most of my designs inegrating some type of florals whether it is a stamped image or a fabric/paper flower.  Some embellishments I just couldn’t live without include lots of gems, pearls, lace, and ribbons.

My most challenging types of designs would have to be one-layer and manly cards.  But they are a great challenge that I always look forward to when presented with one.”

Hey there!

I have been sick for a few weeks, runny nose and cough :( Every time I get cough, it lasts forever… and is really annoying…Agh! Anyway, a quick post today, just to share a card that I created using a fun and old stamp set by Hero Arts:  Going

061114web_happyFathersDay

The sentiment is by ME (Papa Love) and the pretty patterned papers belong to a 6×6 Collection by Studio Calico (Here+There)… No embellishments this time, only stitches along the edge.

I am finally  back today to share the inspiration of this month…

Inspirationjuneok2014

We all know that Father’s Day is around the corner, so I thought that a masculine theme for this month would be just perfect. I know, I know, masculine cards can be tricky to create, specially because we love flowers, ribbons, and all kind of feminine details, right? Well, I am giving you a little push to create something masculine during June, so the themes for this month are Cars & Stars. As the previously themes shared before, these are just a starting point for my projects. I will be using maybe a stamp, a shape,  or just a detail related to the themes…Nothing complicated. I will try to use the color combo too, maybe not in the same shades of color, but I will do my best to keep them close to the colors shown above.  Well,  here is the first card…

060614web_funnyman

To create this card, I used as the focal point a sentiment included in a set by Jane’s Doodles “I Got This“… The background was created using Distress Inks and a technique that I called Round Stains and I shared a while ago on THIS VIDEO. At the end, I used some Silver Stars (Basics Metal Studs Stickers) by Basic Grey as embellishments. Very simple card with a bit of dimension :)

Well, that’s all from me today  :) Thanks for visiting, I hope you have a great crafty  weekend!

Hi there!
I am back today to share a card that I made using my Cricut Expression 2 and a bunch of paper scraps…

052914web_happyBirthday

The image that I used is from a cartridge called Birthday Cakes. First, I cut the cupcakes “base shadow blackout” using white card stock. Next, I cut the cupcakes as a base using brown card stock. Then,  I cut the cupcakes using different patterned papers. For some reason, in this particular image,  the zigzag edges of the bottom and upper parts of the cupcake images don’t  match. So, I had to overlap the two pieces, and then cut a little bit of the brown base with my scissors. I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment by Hero Arts, using two colors of ink… just because…I think it looks cool.  Anyway, at the very end, I adhered the cupcakes using foam tape…a pearl and some liquid pearls too :)  This card looks quite simple, but the making wasn’t that quick and simple as it looks…

Well, that’s all from me today  :) Thanks for visiting, I hope you all have fabulous long weekend!
