Happy Monday, everyone!

Sorry if I haven’t been very active here on my blog lately but I went to Paris with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was super busy planning, organizing, and also having fun in Paris :) I will share some pictures with you later this week.
Anyway, I also have been patiently waiting for this day to come because a few weeks ago, Hero Arts invited me to become part of the Design Team… and of course, I said YES!. Since I started stamping, Hero Arts has always been one of my favorite brands, so as you can imagine, right now I am on cloud nine :)  I have always considered Hero Arts as a lider company in the stamping industry, so  being part of their family is such an honor for me.The official announcement has been posted today on the Hero Arts Blog, so I invite you to hop over there and see who my talented team pals are. We are also sharing some cards there… Here is a sneak peek of my card…

Hey there! Quick post today just to share a card I made using a Jane’s Doodles freebie… that she posted this week, and you can get it if you hop over the JD blog by clicking >>>>HERE<<< 072514web_friendsareforever The piecing technique is just perfect for digi-stamps. You simply print out the image on different patterned papers, you cut out the pieces with scissors, and then you just put them together as a puzzle :)  Quite simple and fun :) Now is time to announce the name of the lucky winner of the HOW SWEET stamp set by JD. According to Random Org the winner is: Screen Shot 2014-07-25 at 2.10.45 PM That means that # 4 is KIM R.! She said this; “How cute! Great masking to get that rainbow effect!”

Congratulations Kim!…Please send me an email with your addy ASAP :D  so I can send you your stamp set right away! :) (Please use the CONTACT tab above to send your message)

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 :)

If you want to take a look of all the inspiration on Virginia’s View Challenge #5  please click HERE… As always, Virginia has amazing Guest Designers, and she also shares videos about several techniques using die cuts :)

 

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 :)

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project and a little Giveaway :)

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 :)

I also created mini square envelopes with my Envelope Punch Board by WR Memories :)

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.”
