The little bird is from a set called Garden Friends and the sentiment, and musical notes are from Special Day stamp set.

I have been doing my Spring cleaning here and there at home… but as always, the cleaning work  is like a never-ending story :)

Anyways, I hope you all have a nice rest of the week! Thanks for stopping by :)

Hi there!

I am back today just to share a card that I created using my Silhouette Cameo, and the sketch from the current Sketchbook Saturday Challenge 118

032514web_HappyEasterIsn’t that bunny/owl image cute? Well, I know Easter is not until next month, but I couldn’t resist using this shape that is called Owl Easter . I cut the pieces using patterned papers from  the Hey Girl 6×6 paper pad collection by Basic Grey. The sentiment, bubble text, and owl shadow were created using Illustrator. The bubble and shadow were cut with the Cameo, and the sentiment was simply printed on the bubble with my regular ink printer.

I also used sequins, wiggle eyes and glossy accents as the final touches.

Well, that is all from me today :) Thanks for stopping by , I hope you have a great crafty week!

Happy Friday, everyone!

Quick post today, just to share a simple card that I made using my Cricut Expression

032114web_happybirthday

I used a cute bird image included in  Birthday Cakes cartridge  and patterned papers from Hip Hip Hooray 6×6 paper pad by American Crafts….. The sentiment is by Hero Arts and belongs to a set called Little Birdie. I also used decorative tape, a wiggle eye for the birdie, and a few gemstones.

Thanks for stopping by :) Have a fantastic crafty weekend!

Hi!

It’s me again :) Here is a scrapbook page that I created using  a patterned paper collection called Harvest Lane by Simple Stories…

mg_afterwpics_web

I bought this paper collection a while ago, but as many of my other crafty stuff it was waiting to be used.  This page is about the pictures that were taken after a walk I did along with two of my girl friends on October 2012.  I  combined the papers with a bunch of other things that I had in my stash:   canvas alpha stickers by Making Memories (I found these on the clearence section of the craft store a long ago) …. and I complemented the title with some letters I cut with my Silhouette and some tiny alpha stickers by Authentique Paper (Carefree Elements 8×12)

…Wood flowers, decorative tape, sequins, gemstones, pearls and of course stitches…

Believe or not, I have been scrapbooking more :) I am still behind on my projects but, at least I can see some progress :)

Thanks for stopping by :) I’ll be back soon with another project.

Have a great rest of the week!

Hi there!

I am back today to share another card that I created using my Gelatos…

031414web_brighterdaysFirst of all, I want to point out  that what I did here is basically the embossing resist technique that you probably already know, but instead of using a stamp image, I used a stencil. I started this card by using a Heidi Swap stencil (Bird), Versamark ink and white embossing powder. Then, I created the background with different colors of Faber Castell Gelatos and water. I just love the watercolor effect that you can achieve! I also used a Faded Text Background stamp by Stampabilities as a subtle image.  I added stitches and sequins, and at the very end, I simply stamped a sentiment that belongs to a set called Remember by Hero Arts. Simple yet fun :)

Oh! I almost forgot… I am going to link this card to the new challenge that my good friend Virginia has successfully launched a few weeks ago (Virginia’s View Challenge)… Click HERE if you want to find lots of inspiration ;)

Thanks for stopping by :) Have a great crafty week!

Happy Friday, everyone!

I am back today to share a card using some Jane’s Doodles stamps sets…

031414web_thankyou

I used one of the images included in Random Patterns and four different colors of Distress Inks (Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass, Wild Honey and Pumice Stone) to create the background. The little birds are from two different sets: Double Trouble and Jungle Baby, and I colored them with Copics colors that matched the colors of the background ;) The sentiment and text bubble are included in Attached to You. I added glossy accents and sequins to complement this cute card.

And now… the winner of the Hooray stamp set by Hero Arts :) According to Random Org the winner is:

That means that # 1 is RUTH G!

She said this; “Super cute card! I love those sweet birds and cages and the colors that you used are wonderful!
My favorite stamp company is hard to say! I love clear stamps (I’m allergic to rubber) but I guess if I have to choose a favorite it’d be Papertrey Ink. There are so many fabulous designs from all sorts of different companies, though, that I really love them all!

Congratulations Ruth!…Please send me an email with your addy ASAP :D  so I can send you your stamp set right away! :)

Thanks so much for participating and for sharing with me  about your favorite stamp companies!

I hope you all have a fabulous crafty weekend :) Thanks for stopping by!

Hey there!

Quick post today just to share a card using two stamp sets Little Birdie  and Hooray by Hero Arts…

031114web_itsyourspecday

I combined the stamps with some patterned papers and I added glossy accents details. Very simple and easy to make.

Thanks for stopping by! :) Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Happy Monday, everyone!

I am back today to share a card featuring a cute set by Stampin’Up: Aviary

031014web_heybuddy

This is a CAS card, with a minimum of details. I don’t think these cute images need a lot to stand out by themselves. The stamps are cling style and I like that they come in a thin plastic box, similar to the video games ones.  I added a sentiment included in a set named Simply Said by Paper Smooches

Lately, I have been organizing my stamps… again. I already  have added some of my used stamps to my page  4 SALE, because I am trying to have more free space for other things on my shelves, so that is the only reason. I wish I could keep everything, but I can’t. I have a couple of stamps that are new, and those I will be giving them away from time to time here on my blog. The first one that I would like to giveaway to a lucky winner is  a brand new  Hero Arts set called Hooray. The only request: leave a comment telling me about your current favorite stamp company… Easy peasy. Contest will be open to US  residents only and You have until Thursday midnight central time (03/13/14) to leave your comments and I will randomly choose a winner.  I will announce the name of the lucky one on Friday (03/14/14)… So, stay tuned  :)

Hi Friends!

I am back today to share a simple card using a Lawn Fawn stamp set called Fly Free… perfect for the Inspiration theme of the month :)

020514web_lovelife

I used  two patterned papers  included in an  Amy Tangerine 6×6 paper pad collection called Ready Set Go by American Crafts. Did you notice it? No stitches, no sequins… Just a button threaded with hemp cord  as the only embellishment :)  Believe it or not, sometimes is hard to keep it clean and simple :)

I also want to share today about a little project that you can easily make at home. As you have noticed before, I love using pearls, gems and enamel dots on my projects… and I have many of them (I think I have an addiction here) Well, keeping them in their original clear bag is impossible, at least for me. I always end up damaging the little bags. One time I had the “brilliant idea” of  keeping all of them inside a plastic container, without the bag… Oops! my idea was not so brilliant because they end up very messy… with fibers and little pieces of paper all over them :( After my own brain storm, I thought that the inexpensive photo albums that you can find almost anywhere are just perfect for my favorite embellishments…

The best part is that you can give them your personal touch. The covers can easily be changed so, I created my own covers with patterned paper. I adhered the patterned paper to the original covers, just to make them a bit thicker and sturdy. Next, I designed, printed out and trimmed a label…

… and this is how it looks my handy dandy Embellishment Keeper :)

Inside, I got rid of the clear bags of my embellishments , and I only kept the name of the manufacturer , just in case I need the ñame as a reference. You can easily see what you have available, and the embellishments are always  free of dust and ready to use  :)

Well, I hope you like this idea… Easy and inexpensive to make.

I hope you have a fabulous crafty rest of the week :) Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Monday, friends!

I am back today to share the inspiration of this month, here on my blog…inspirationmarch3

I am kind of in the mood of Spring, despite we are not there yet. Hopefully soon the weather will have mercy on us and the warm temperatures come soon :). Anyways, as you can see, I added a color palette to the inspiration picture, just in case somebody wants to use it. But don’t take it so seriously, the inspiration picture and colors are just a starting point for me… and of course for you too.   I will be using birds in some of my projects, and  branches in others… or maybe both… I am not sure yet. I am just making my life easy :)   So here is the first card of the month…

030314web_heartfeltthanks

I created my card using a simple sketch design combined with patterned papers and stamps. The patterned papers are included in an  Amy Tangerine 6×6 paper pad collection called Ready Set Go by American Crafts, the stamps that I used are by Hero Arts: Sentiment (Good Friends) and little bird ( Merci Bouquet).

Here is the sketch I used:
