Hi there!

Today I am sharing a tiny card (3″x3″) that I created using some products that I bought at the i {heart} papers store…

012515web_manythanks

I used patterned papers from a 6×6 paper pad collection called Be Different by Fancy Pants, and cute stamp set called You are a Hoot by Lawn Fawn (along with its matching dies.) That owl is super cute, don’t you think? Additionally I used a sentiment by Paper Smooches (Word Salad), wiggly eyes and Glossy Accents over the sentiment (I love Glossy Accents!)

As you all know, the i {heart} papers store is closing and their merchandise is currently on liquidation, so don’t forget to visit them to see what great products are still available. The current discount is 50% off! Use coupon code BYEIHP at checkout.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Another quick post today  :) just to share a card that I made using Jane’s Doodles products…

012515web_celebrate

This time I used Stripes and Dots stamp set to create the background, along with two different ink colors. I also used a fun set called Cheers. I chose the glass of wine image and a short sentiment from the set. I colored the main image with Chameleon pens and I added Glossy Accents. Then, I carefully trimmed the image with scissors and I adhered onto a white square (I rotated the square 45º just to make it a little bit different.)  The sentiment was white embossed onto black card stock strip, and then I adhered it with foam tape. I placed the square also with foam tape onto de card and then, I simply embellished it with a heart shaped gem.

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 weekend!

Hey there!

Just popping in to share a card I created using one of the new sets included in the new 2015 Spring Catalog by Hero Arts…

012515web_howdy

This set is called Stamp your Own Cactus. I like the different cactus shapes and planters included in this set. They give you several options, so you can create your very own cactus :)

I made the background of my card using a chevron stencil, distress ink, and a sash brush. First, I temporarily affixed the stencil onto a white card base with some sticky notes. Then, I tapped the brush directly on the ink pad several times to pick up some ink, and then, I rubbed it over the stencil in a circular motion. More in the center, less on the sides.  That created the ombre effect. After that, I diluted a little bit of Orange Soda dauber with water, and I splashed the watery mix over the card front using a small brush.

The focal point (cactus + planter) and sentiment were simply stamped with black ink on the card. The cactus and planter were also stamped on a separate piece of snow layering paper. Then, I colored them with Chameleons pens. Next,  I trimmed out the pieces with scissors, and I adhered them to the card front, adding a bit of dimension with foam tape. At the end I put Sparkle Gems Small Blossoms as embellishments :)

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

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am sharing a card that I created using the current Cas(E) this Sketch #107 along with patterned papers that I bought at the i {heart} papers store… 012515web_thanks I used patterned papers from a 6×6 paper pad collection called Be Different by Fancy Pants. The different designs of patterned papers are very pretty, as well as the colors :)   I created the flowers using my Cricut Expression 2 and a cartridge named Plantin SchoolBook. The sentiment is by Paper Smooches (Simply Said) and I put Glossy Accents over it. I embellished the flowers with rhinestones by Recollections.

Hi!

One more quick post, just to share a card using some Hero Arts great products…

012215web_YouAreoneof

I created the background of this card using watercolor paper, Floral Vines Stencil, lightweight spackling, and Faber Castell Gelatos. Using the stencil as a mask, I put lightweight spackling with a spatula, and I let it dry. Then, I made a mix of Gelatos colors over a craft sheet. I sprayed water on them, and I carefully put the watercolor panel facing down over the color mixture for a few seconds. You just want that the color touches only the raised shapes. When dried, I adhered it to a card base (Pool Layering Paper).

The focal point of this card is a woodblock stamp called Nicest Thoughts, and I just white-embossed the image onto Black Layering Paper. Next, I simply trimmed the image with scissors, and adhered it with foam tape to the card front. At the end I added some small and medium pearls as the final touches.

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

I received as a Christmas present a set of Chameleon pens (which are fabulous ) and I used them to color the cute fox. I trimmed the fox with scissors and I placed it over a white circle with foam tape. The rest of this card : a sentiment, a couple of decorative tape pieces and a black pearl ;)

 Hi!

As you know, I was invited by the i {heart} papers store to be a Guest Designer for the months of December and January, and I am very thankful with Kate because of that. Today Kate made the announcement about her decision to close the i {heart} papers store, and after reading the reasons she has,  I completely understand her.  I know the craft industry is challenging and it is always changing, particularly nowadays with the ups and downs of the economy.  I really wish her the best on her new endeavors. Please be sure to stop by the i {heart} papers blog and read her complete announcement…

Anyway I was going to post a card on Monday, but due to the IHP news, I am sharing that card today….

010915web_Imlucky

I used a leprechaun image included in a set called A Magical Spring by Paper Smooches. I stamped the image on white card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the image with Copic markers and then, I cut it out with scissors. Additionally,  I used a white card stock strip to stamp the sentiment. I used patterned paper to make a rectangle background, and adhered it over a green 4.25″ x 5.5″ base card.   The patterned paper belongs to a collection called Simple Life Dots & Stripes by Echo Park. The final touches were details of Stickles, Glossy Accents and some green Sequins. My card was based on the current  CTS #105.
