Playing AGAIN with Watercolors...

I recently made these party favors for a family event. 

They are very simple in terms of design on how to display the treats but I wanted to make each of them unique instead of all of the same. 


That's why I used watercolor paint to make mini works of abstract art. 


I mixed colors and traced forms and then used a heated gun to make the colors travel in the card and dry to a great texture and design. 


Inside there are mini cinnamon sugar cookies. Yummy!

Playing with Watercolors...

I love using paints in my projects. Either it is spray paints, acrylic, gelatos or watercolors... the mere fact of getting my marks in my fingers and hands make me feel I am creating.  Well, i really try to avoid excessive mess but it is what it is. LOL 

For watercolored projects specifically I've worked with pencils and paint itself. I love the effects that can be created with those. 

This card is a CAS style technique one, using watercolor paints for the mixed colors in the background. 


The stamped image in the center is also colored with watercolor pencils but the real center of attention for me is the background/frame. 


Hope you like it.  I even thing this girl is me. The hair... the wine glass... definitely me. LOL. 

I recently made another cool project using watercolor paint for some party favors. Will share with you in another post in the near future. 

I will share this post with Craft Stamper Magazine blog. An Anything Goes stamping challenge is running right now. Here's the link for your reference:

Feliz Cumpleaños- card

I made this card as a request  to surprise someone for her birthday. 
This person likes Angels so I wanted to incorporate that into the card to make it more personalized.

I used vellum, card stock, and doily, plus some sequins for the card composition.   I also ensured to use the colors that are related to the decoration materials. These colors are gold, ivory, white and blue. 


I colored the image using watercolor pencils and water brush. 

I also used dies to have the perfect words "Feliz Cumpleaños", which mean Happy Birthday in Spanish. 


The person would receive the card next week. So I hope she likes it. And of course I hope you like it too. Thanks for stopping by.

Note:  the stamps image is from Unity Stamp Co.  The words dies are from Latina Crafter.

Happy Birthday Card

I recently made this CAS card for my birthday stash. 

Love this image of he tall lady. At least I feel she's tall because it is a large stamp. LOL!!


I colored the beautiful girl and framed with cardstocks.  I also used  painted doilies for the framing and to add some dramatic elements. 


Hope you like it as much as I do.

More of Women's Strength

I love this Stamp. This girl is gorgeous and can represent a lot of emotions. 

This time I stamped in cardstock and then stamped the sentiment in darker color over her, and heat-embossed to make it pop. 


I also used lots of gems and bling and doily to frame this beauty. 

I hope you like it. This message is to all women reading this now. Be strong.

Trust Your Own Wings

I've been playing with this Stamp lately.  I love the image of this woman silhouette.  

The message about trust is so powerful.  It is precisely the sentiment that inspired me to combine two great stamps as I did. 


I stamped the image of the woman and fussy cut.  Did the same with a butterfly image in vellum and placed behind the woman as her wings. 

All this placed on embossed white paper and message delicately presented in vellum with final touch of rhinestones made the final card. 


Hope you like it. Happy Friday and happy weekend.

Revealing Card

I wanted so much to make a revealing card like the ones everybody's making lately. It's a trend. I know!

However, I didn't want it to have the same image outside and inside to just change color so I went for having the sentiment in the transparency and the image inside. 


I used autumn colors and the background is embossed simulating wood or a tree.


The sentiment is about how much happiness you have brought... and  When you pull the white insert the image is revealed so representing the happiness brought. 


Hope you like my card. Made with sooooo much love
