Welcome to a fabulous Jane’s Doodles Spotlight Blog Hop! Today we are sharing cards featuring a new cute set called SeamusI have to point out that as part of this Blog Hop Seamus is currently 15% off :) Isn’t he adorable?


Well, to create the background of the card, I used another new stamp set called Stripes and Dots.  I stamped one of the solid stripe images using two different colors of ink. Then on a piece of white card stock, I stamped one of the sheep images using black ink and then, I added color details with my Copics. I trim out the image with my scissors. Quite easy and quick. I stamped the sentiment on text bubble and then,  I simply stamped some pink hearts.  To finish this card, I tied Baker’s Twine around front panel, and I added Glossy Accents details.

As always, Jane is giving away the Seamus set. So, for the chance to win it, please leave comments on each of the participants blogs. We have talented Tanja as our Guest Designer :) The winner will be announced on Monday.

Hi there!

I am back today to share a card that I created using some of the products that you can buy at the i{heart} papers store


This is another simple card using a pretty stamp set called Lucille Sew Perfect by Hero Arts/Basic Grey. I stamped the image and then the sentiment on a strip of patterned paper that belongs to a 6×6 pad collection called Sweater Weather by Lawn Fawn. I used Hero Arts Shadow Ink Mint Julep and Memento Tuxedo Black. I added decorative tape and stitches along two sides of the patterned paper. Finally, I just added three white hearts with KaiserCraft Basics Rhinestones Gems and then, I tied Earthy Hemp Twine around front panel. Very easy to make.

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 New Year my friends!

I am happy to be posting today my first card of the year :)  I used one of the most recently released sets by Jane’s Doodles: Hello Friend, which is a very cute set…


This card is another simply stamped project. I used two of the solid images included in the set along with one of the sentiments and a little heart image also included in the same set.  The only final touches were baker’s twine and a little bit of Glossy Accents over the heart image. Easy peasy.

I hope you all had a nice Holiday season. We were very busy the whole month of December. First, at the beginning of the month, we started making some home improvements. We changed the floor of the main level of the house, and changed the counter top of our kitchen, and some other things. All was finally finished by th 19th, so then, we finally could put all the Christmas decorations. Then, the last minute shopping, the cooking,  and the cleaning kept us entertained. The family came over on the 24th to have dinner with us. We really enjoyed their company.  New Years was quiet here; a simple celebration just the four of us and two friends as guest. Now, I’m simply glad that the Holidays are over :) I just wish I could have an extra week to rest :)

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



Quick post today, just to share a card using products from the i {heart} papers store :)


I used a cute bunny included in a set called A Magical Spring by Paper Smooches. I stamped the image on patterned paper, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After I cut out the image, I used a white cardstock rectangle and a patterned paper strip as the base for the bunny. Additionally to the little stamped heart, I stamped a sentiment by Hero Arts. I embellish this card with a piece of Earthy Hemp Twine, and some Kaiser Craft Basic Rhinestone gems. As you can see, quite simple. I always like to have sketches that can use many times and also can save you time, specially when you need to make “last minute” cards.
Well, today I am also sharing the sketch of this card, so please feel free to grab it!


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


I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family. I also want to say THANKS for all your visits and comments along 2014. I truly appreciate them, because they keep my inspiration alive!

Merry Christmas!

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!
