I am back today to share another card featuring products that you can buy at the i {heart} papers store.

The set that I used for my card is a Holiday set  called  Love You a Latte by Lawn Fawn. The set includes six sentiments, among them a “thanks” sentiment. I love when you can buy versatile stamp sets that you can use in more than one way. With this set, you can make Holiday, or Thanks , or Love cards :)


I begun this project by making a card base, and then, I covered the front of it with a striped patterned paper that belongs to a collection called Simple Life Dots & Stripes by Echo Park. Next,  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a white panel, and I colored the images with Copic markers.  I also added some glitter little details, as well as Glossy AccentsThen, I made a panel from black card stock  (3.75″ x 5″) and die-cut a 2.75″ circle to create a window. I placed this panel on top of the stamped white panel with foam tape. Finally I adhered the panel to the front card, and I tie on black bakers twine… and presto!

Well, that’ all from me today. Thanks for visiting, have a nice crafty week!


Hey there!

It’s me again :D Today I also want to share a card that I created using Hero Arts products


To create my card I used a stencil called Floral Vines Stencil. This product is included in the Hero Arts Valentine’s Day 2015 Collection (already available). I used the stencil as a mask, and I applied Pale Tomato spray. I adhered the panel to a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base (Charcoal layering paper). Then, I white-embossed a sentiment on a strip of red cardstock, and I adhered it with foam tape.  I changed the color of an art flower using also the Pale Tomato Spray, and I placed it onto the sentiment strip with a glue dot. Finally, I embellished the card with some smooth clear gemstones.

Well, that’s all from me right now, I will be back soon to share another project!

Thanks for stopping by  :) Have a wonderful crafty weeked!

Just popping in really quick to share a Jane’s Doodles Card. The set that I used this time is called: Mr. and Mrs. Claus


The two main images included in this set are just perfect for the piecing technique (one of my favorites) I used patterned papers included in a Dots & Stripes by Echo Park, sequins by Lawn Fawn, and  Stickles details. My card was based on the CTS design #103 from last week by CAS(E) this sketch. (There is still time to participate :) if you wish )


I have the intention to participate on the challenge since last week, but I have been struggling to find the time to make my crafts. We are doing some renovations at home, and everything is upside down :( Besides that, I haven’t even put all my Christmas decorations…  (sigh). Hopefully, I can do it this weekend, right on time for Christmas.

Well, that’ all from me today. Thanks for visiting, have a nice crafty week!


Hi! Just popping in to share a card that I created using some products that you can find at the i {heart} papers store…. 121114web_happyholidays1 This card features a set called Gingerbread Wishes by Hero Arts . I white-embossed the cute gingerbread man on a piece of patterned paper from Sweater Weather 6×6 paper pad collection by Lawn Fawn and then, I simply trimmed along the edge with scissors. The postal border image was  white-embossed, and the sentiment was black-embossed  directly onto a red card base.  The final touches for this card were a red bow tie, some red 6mm Cupped Sequins as well as clear and black KaiserCraft Basic Rhinestones Gems.

Well, that’ all from me today. Thanks for visiting, have a nice crafty weekend!

Welcome to the…


I am so excited today to be part of this blog hop featuring holiday ornaments and  home decors! I hope you find inspiration and enjoy this blog hop! 

For this special occasion I created a couple of different ornaments very easy to make. ..


To create each ornament, I used an 8.5 x 5.5″ piece of stamped white card stock (I used Leaves, Berries & Branches and Pale Tomato Ink), and an 8.5 x 5.5″ piece of Layering Paper (Punch color). Next, I die cut 12 circles (2.25″ approx). Then, I scored and folded each of them in half. After that, I glued them together, alternating the flat sides of the circles (stamped cardstock and layering paper). Finally, I threaded a jingle bell with hemp, and passed it through the middle of the ornament, I added a golden bead, and I made a knot.  I made more ornaments  using different colors, and I just loved how they look together. Quite a simple idea, and very fun to make.


I also created some ornaments using message blocks. Lisa Spangler featured these fun blocks a couple weeks ago on >>> this post<<<

To make my ornaments,  I gold and silver embossed  Hero Arts stamps directly on the wood (Leaves, Berries & Branches + Merry &Bright Holidays). I also added glitter ribbon and a small screw eye. At the very end, I added some gems and gold cord.


Hero Arts is  having an inlinkz link-up for anyone who wants to make an ornament or home decor project and submit it. You will have until Friday Dec 12 at 6pm EST, and we will announce the random winner on Saturday Dec 13. The DIY prize pack includes: two packages of message blocks, two ink daubers, a stencil, and alphabet stamp set :)

Welcome to a very special blog hop….


If you are coming from Lynn Mangan‘s blog, you are in the right direction.

First of all, I have to say that I have always considered PaperCrafts as one of the best publishers in the craft industry, and it is really sad for me to see them close their doors. I really appreciate all what their talented team have done for the industry and for all of us, the carmakers and crafters.

It was great to submit cards with them, and even though  my cards were not always chosen, the waiting time for that “happy mail” was always fun. Of course, after you received it… the “happy dance” would follow. Sometimes even cloud nine was my destination  as a “cover girl” or “stamping queen” (sigh) :)

Anyway, besides those happy moments, the fact of my cards being  published in some of the PC magazines, made me feel very proud. Here are the two covers were my cards were published (peacock card on left, and butterfly card on right) …


For this special occasion, I created a simple card with a meaningful sentiment…120314web_thankssomuch

I just want to add that I am really grateful with the PC team, because they always encouraged us to participate, to create, and to share. So, from the bottom of my heart: THANKS Susan, Teri, Jennifer, Holly, Stacy and Kerri! 

Now you are ready to hop over your next stop,  the blog of creative Shery Russ …

I am popping in quickly to share another card featuring one of the recently released sets by Jane’s DoodlesWarm Wishes


The big snowman included in this set is super fun; just with a few color touches, glitter and glossy accents is ready to be the focal point of a card. The sentiment is from another set called Mr. & Mrs. Claus, and the background stamp is included in Holiday Patterns stamp set.  Talking about stamp sets, the Jane’s Doodles store recently  has reduced some of the sets currently available in the store, so I highly recommend you to hop over and see what they have by clicking >>>HERE <<<

Well, that’s all from me right now, I will be back soon to share another project!

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


Happy Monday, everyone!

Today I am sharing that I have been honored to be the i {heart} papers Guest Designer for the months of December and January! Over these two months I will be featuring products that you can find at the i {heart} papers store, so I think is going to be a lot of fun.

For this special day, I created a card showing a set called  Love You a Latte by Lawn Fawn.


I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a white tag, and then, I colored the images with markers. I also created a frame onto the card base with a patterned paper included in Sweater Weather 6×6 Paper Pad also by Lawn Fawn.  I applied some glitter details over the marshmallows with a white Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Marker. Next, I put a layer of Glossy Accents on the image and sentiment.  Finally, I adhered the tag with foam tape, I stitched along the edge with my sewing machine, and added a simple red ribbon knot as an embellishment.

I hope you can join me for the next several weeks, I will be featuring some of my favorite brands of stamps!

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