RG Noteworthy Card

Hello everyone! I am back today to share a card featuring a couple of products from one of the new collections by Richard Garay: Noteworthy.


To create this card I used a stap set called Noteworthy and  patterned papers from the Noteworthy Prints 6×6 paper pad. I began by piercing the card base with some of the die templates from Pierced Stars  (Celebr’ations Collection).


Then, I stamped the sentiment over a white card stock strip with black ink. I adhere the paper strip over the card base and I added a stitch detail on the right side.


I die cut some stars from patterned papers, and I adhered them over the card with foam squares. Last, I embellished the card with a few clear gemstones and Journey Glaze over the sentiment.

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

RG Make Amazing Happen Card

Hey there! I am back just to share another card that I created with the new Make Amazing Happen Collection by Richard Garay.


For this card, I used watercolor paper to create the background. I clear-embossed flowers and leaves images several times over the panel (Amazing Blooms and Make Amazing stamp sets). Then, using  a couple of colors of Gelatos (Faber Castell), water and a brush, I covered the whole panel. At the end I splattered a little bit of Silver Shimmer. I adhered the panel over a card base, and I added stitches along the edge.


The sentiment was stamped on white card stock with black ink, and die cut with its matching die.  I adhered it over the front panel with foam squares along with silver thread. I stamped the flower with pink ink, then I added Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Cuts over it. Once was dried, I fussy cut the shape and I adhered it with a foam square. I embellish the card with some clear gemstones.

If you haven’t seen all the new Richard Gary Collections, you can take a look in the link below. The new collections will be released in the next few months, so stay tuned😉

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another card.

RG Celebra’tions Card [Love You]

Hi! Today I am sharing a card using the a few products from the Celebra’tions Collection by Richard Garay. This collection includes a wide variety of elements that you can use for different occasions.


I created the background of this card using Chevron Prints washi tape. This tape is very wide, which makes easy to cover the card front.  Then, I used the Pierced Hearts  die template to create the big heart. I die cut this shape using Captivating Coral card stock. One of the things that I like about these type of dies is that you can either use or not the pierced detail.


Over the big heart I stamped a couple of times a brush stroke image (Brush Strokes stamp set) using Captivating Coral inkThen, I splattered a little bit of Silver Shimmer over the heart. After that, I adhered it onto the card front and I added zigzag stitches.


I used the All You die templates to die cut the word “Love” from white card stock and foam. Then, I adhered the word over the big heart.  The small heart was die cut from regular white card stock. Next, I stamped the word “you” using part of an image included in Cup for Two stamp set. I adhered the heart with a foam square. Finally, I embellished the card with a few small gemstones.

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

Today’s Card: Happy Birthday

A quick post today just to share a card I created  using one of the new stamp sets from the 2016 Hero Arts Catalog. This new set is called Make a Wish Birthday, and it will be available at the Hero Arts store on February 8th along with all the new HA products.


I created the background with the Swirl Stencil, a few Shadow Ink colors and sponges.  To create the focal point of my card I used a sentiment included in the new Make a Wish Birthday set.  I stamped it over an oval shape with Black Dye ink. I arranged three strips of different colors of card stok onto the background, and I adhered the sentiment with foam tape.


The little flowers stamps are included in the same set, and I stamped them with different colors of ink over white cardstock. Then,  I fussy cut them with scissors and I used them as embellishments. Finally, I added pearls and gemstones here and there.

Today’s Card: Thank You

First of all, I want to thank you for the condolences you left on my last blog post. Knowing that my blog is like an open window to share and also to communicate with people like me, makes me feel better. I haven’t met the majority of you in person, I really appreciate that you took a moment to say something to comfort me and share a bit of your own life events.


I know I am not alone, because losing a loved one is something that we all have to encounter sometime along our lives, which makes us more compassionate about others. I also know that everybody heals differently, but I am sure time will be a key to help me go through this, along with the support of my family and friends. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.

—The 14th Dalai Lama (1935)

She Was a Good Mom.

Last week I went to Mexico to say goodbye to my mom. It was very hard and sad. I think about those moments, and tears start pouring. There are no words to describe this sadness.


I talked to her on the phone for the last time on New Years. Her voice sounded fine and strong, but I guess her heart was weak. She passed away suddenly on the 8th. I owe her a lot. She taught me to love animals,  to cook improvising and also to change the recipes. I remember her always doing something with her hands: sewing, knitting, painting. She taught me all that too.

She was very talented. She loved painting using watercolors, but she was always willing to try different techniques.  She collected a bunch of pictures from magazines or books, and kept them in a big folder, which was her inspiration folder. When I was living in Mexico, close to her, we used to get together and paint. Those were precious moments. She seems to be a very serious person, but in reality she had a very good sense of humor, and a big heart.  I loved that about her. Anyway, she had more than one hundred and fifty paintings, and  I want to share a few of them…





The next painting, I brought it with me. She painted it last month. It was one of her last ones.


She will remain in my heart forever. Her name was Leonor, and she was a good mom, she was my mom.

Thanks for stopping by,


Today’s Card: You Make My Heart Flutter

Happy Friday, everyone!

I love all the amazing cards that you can make with the current MMH! I think all  the products included in this kit are simply fabulous. Today I am sharing another card that I created with it:


I die cut the heart shape using a piece of foam. Then I adhered the foam shape over an acrylic block, and I used it as a stamp to create the background of my card along with three different ink colors.


Then, I die cut the background with the clustered hearts die (which I love!) After that,  I adhered the panel over a card base. Next, I stamped a sentiment and added Glossy Accents over it. Last, I embellished  the card with yummy sequins.


Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.
