Hey There!
I hope you all are enjoying your summer. Today I am sharing a card that I created using a fun set by Latina Crafter: Verano. The flip flops image is very cute and I simply stamped it with three different colors of ink. The word Disfruta means Enjoy, and the word Verano means Summer. The background is a woodblock stamp by Hero Arts called Tiny Ink Spots. To finish my card I added some sequins and hemp cord.

Hi There!
Just popping in to share a simple card that features a pretty JD stamp set called Daffodils. I don’t have too much to say today, I am far away from my Mac and having a hard time trying to work with my IPad and a bad Internet connection :(

Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is my last post of the week, and I am featuring one of the new ME sets: Hustle. This set is full of sentiments that you can combine with any of your other ME  sets that you already have ;)  You don’t have any? Well,  you can use by it self too. So, I made a bright 2.75″ x 5.5″ card using one of the sentiments included in this set, and I used four different colors of neon inks to achieve a colorful look . I also used one of the images included in Full House  to create a subtle background, and I complemented my card with some gemstones and faux stitches…071213web_putupwiththerain

Hi!

It’s me again :) The card that I created for today, features a set called Lights Out.  This is a wonderful set that  can be used in many ways. The images of light bulbs are very versatile, and the sentiments are so clever. For my card I created a hanging light bulb and I combined with one of the sentiments. I used some HA Neon inks that I recently bought. The finishing touches were gemstones, and baker’s twine. Take a look…

Hi!

This is the second day of ME stamp highlights, and today’s turn is for Full House. This set is quite fun. It includes some borders, cute images of tiny houses,  and a few sentiments :) For my card I combined some the images with decorative tape, gemstones and stitches :)

Hey there!

Today we are featuring a pretty stamp set called Stitches.  This time I made a simple and “easy to make” card. The big sentiment was stamped with Versamark on watercolor paper, and then, I heat-embossed it using white powder. After that, I created a watercolor brush effect background using Distress Inks, water and a flat brush  :D To finish my card, I added some gemstones, stitches, zigzag borders, and some dimension. Very Simple yet fun.

Today I am showcasing a set called Stitches.. This set is versatile, cute and fun, and I thought it was just perfect to create a different style of card for today’s stampede. So I began with some patterned paper layers and stitches :) Next, I stamped the big sentiment as the focal image. Then, I gathered a bunch of “I always have in my stash” elements and I created a cluster on the lower left corner. When you create a shabby chick style card, it is important to play a little bit with the elements, placing them in different areas of your card until you decide where they look better. Here is my final project:

Hey there!

I took a little break from my crafts… and from the world too, lol. I have been cleaning and re-organizing closets since the beggining of summer, and I am still in the process :( It is incredible all the stuff you can accumulate along the years. When we moved to this country, eight years ago, we brought  about six suitcases, our dog, our cat, and my old mac :D  The house that we bought was empty, and now is full with so many things. Well, all the memories can stay in my house, but the extra stuff must go. It seems to be like the never ending story here :) Oh, well I am being optimistic, and I want to think that summer will be enough to get rid of many things that we don’t need anymore… lol. We’ll see…

Anyways, here is a card that I created using a JD stamp set called Life is Sweet. The size of this card is a bit different. Instead of just making two cards (4.25″ x 11″) out of a 8.5″ x 11″ piece of card stock, I made three cards  (2.75″ x 11″) :) Quite simple, but colorful and fun :)

Happy Monday everyone!

Last May, during the Teacher’s Appreciation Week, the PTO of the school where I work surprised us with a little something each day of the week. One of those days we received a pillow box full of lifesavers candy ;)

Feliz Lunes a todos!

En Mayo, durante la semana de Apreciación a los Maestros, el PTO de la escuela donde trabajo, nos sorprendió con un detallito todos los días de la semana. Uno de esos días recibimos una cajita (pillow box) llena de dulces salvavidas ;)

062412Web_pillowbox

How sweet of them! But of course my attention was caught by the pillow box ;) I thought the idea was genius because this is a good way to recycle your paper towel tubes, and also a way to save money, specially if you have to give away many of these. Well, I made a tutorial of how to make them, so maybe you can make your own pillow boxes….

Qué buen detalle! Pero claro, lo que más me llamó la atención fue la cajita ;) Pensé que era una idea genial porque además de ser una forma de reciclar los tubos de las toallas de papel, es una buena forma de ahorrar dinero, especialmente si es que tienes que hacer muchos regalitos. Bien, pues hice un tutorial, para que puedas hacer tus propias cajitas de regalo…

To create it you will need the following:

____________

Para hacerlas vas a necesitar lo siguiente:

pillowtut_1

Here are the steps….

1. Press flat and cut the tube into a four inches long piece. You can make it a bit longer or shorter if you want.

Aquí están los pasos a seguir…

1. Aplana el tubo y corta un pedazo de cuatro pulgadas de largo. Puedes hacerlo un poco más largo o más corto, según como tu quieras.

pillowtut_2

2. Using a round object (lid or glass) and an embossing tool, mark the ends on both sides (front and back) of the tube like shown…

2. Usando un objeto redondo (tapa o vaso) y una herramienta de grabado, marca los extremos en ambos lados (frente y vuelta) del tubo como se muestra…

pillowtut_3

3. Carefully bend the four sides along the marks…

3. Con cuidado dobla los cuatro lados a lo largo de las marcas.pillowtut_4

4. As and optional step, you can stamp a background to the box…

4. Como un paso opcional, puedes estampar un fondo a la cajita…

pillowtut_6

5. Then you just have to unleash your creativity and decorate the pillow box as you wish :)

5. Después tu solamente tienes que echar a volar tu creatividad y decorar la cajita a tu gusto :)pillowtut_7

6. And presto!

6. Listo!

Hi! 

This is my second post of the day because I have more projects to share today. Diana Maldonado from Latina Crafter kindly invited me to be the Guest Artist of the month of June. Well, she sent me some very cute stamps, and of course, I created a few cards with them.

The set that I used on the first card is called Baila Bajo la Lluvia and includes a cute doll and three different sentiments. For the sentiment I used a LC die called Nubes Habladoras :) I also used different patterned papers, card stock, Copics  and sequins to make this card.

Hola!

Este es mi segundo post del día porque tengo más proyectos que compartir hoy. Diana Maldonado de Latina Crafter amablemente me pidió que fuera la Artista Invitada del mes de Junio. Bueno, me envió unos sellos muy lindos, y claro hice algunas tarjetas con ellos.

El set que usé para mi primer tarjeta se llama Baila Bajo la Lluvia e incluye a la muñequita y tres diferentes sentimientos.  Para el sentimiento usé uno de los troqueles que se incluyen en Nubes Habladoras :) También utilicé papeles estampados , cartulina, marcadores Copic y lentejuelas para hacer esta tarjeta.

My second card shows a set called Verano. For this card I simly stamped the flip-flops using different colors of ink. Additionally I used Stickles and Glossy Accents. The   sentiment is also included in the set :)

Mi segunda tarjeta muestra un set llamado Verano. Para esta tarjeta simplemente estampé las sandalias en diferentes colores de tinta, y luego añadí Stickles (brillantina) y Glossy Accents. El sentimiento también se incluye en este set :)

The third card features a set called Para ti Papá I  used the  fun chalkboard technique to create this card along with a one of my favorite color combos ever (You can find it below the card pic) :)

La tercera tarjeta muestra un set que se llama Para ti Papá. Utlicé la técnica de pizarrón para estampar esta tarjeta junto con una de mis combinaciones de colores favoritas (la puedes encontrar debajo de la foto)
