A blessing! That's what you are!

Hello all. 

Made this card to remind someone how special one is. We all are a blessing ourselves.

I didn't want to complicate the card with symbols or too many elements like I sometimes do; but wanted to convey a very simple and direct message to the recipient.  I had several options of sentiment or messages so I asked my boss to choose among them. This message about being one blessing is just simple and so true. 

The person receiving the card will get a medical intervention soon and we (at work), all wanted to let him know how special he is and remind him to have faith and be sure God will protect him during the whole process. 

I first simulated seeing in a piece of cardstock borders, by drawing lines. Then I used watercoloring to create a background of multiple shades. I then added some texture with modeling paste using a stencil.  The message stamped in Spanish means:  life is full of blessings... you are one of them. 

I also used some washi tapes for a frame and placed the layer with the message with dimensional adhesives. 

Finishing touches were added with some enamel dots. 

Hope you like it.  Tell me about it in the comments section below. Thanks.

My DH's birthday

Today's a very special day. My hubby's birthday!!!!!

Thank you God for life with him... in good and bad... health and sickness... some days with more and some with less...   with imperfections from one side to another but loving each other everyday ... 

He's my favorite sommelier, handyman, teacher, engineer, husband, son, friend and more.  Sometimes he's the one who puts my feet on the ground and sometimes he is there just to make me laugh. 

The only thing to wish today is for more of the same... for many many years. 

Feliz cumpleaños !!!!!

Made this card very very nervous so he didn't find me making it. LOL. It's quite simple in the outside.  Lots of circles work as a frame for the sentiment stamped in Spanish. 

The cool unique difference of he card is on the inside. Instead of a regular sentiment interior of a card, I placed a mini album photo page with different messages and photo. Unique and special for my dear husband. 

Hope you like it.

Mother's Day cards!

I really try to participate in some of the multiple activities during National Scrapbooking Day this past weekend.   However, the truth is I didn't have much time and I really didn't feel the mood when had a little.  

So I made these quick little cards last night just to liberate some of the scrapbooking desire.  LOL!

These are CAS style cards because they re easy to replicate using other elements and  colors. 

Different bases with a folder type patterned paper, a sentiment and other embellishments would do it. 

Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Never too early to create...

I made this card recently using Unity Stamp Co stamps, watercolor paints and Prima Color Sprays.

It's a Halloween theme card and I know it's kind of outdated. But it is never too early or too late to create. Inspiration comes in different shapes and can surprise you. 

Hope you like my little card and have a happy National Scrapbooking Day today!

Círculos y Rectángulos LCSC70

Hola a todos.para el reto de abril de Latina Crafter diseñé una tarjeta usando rectángulos y círculos. 

Comencé con una base de tarjeta en cardstock blanco. La vestí con un papel de diseño dejando bordes alrededor que desvelan la base y simulan un marco. 

Para la base de la imagen usé un rectángulo blanco. La imagen fue estampada y coloreada con "watercolors" para crear un "look" suave y tipo  arte o cuadro de pintura con las imperfecciones que a mí personalmente me agradan. Líneas imperfectas... colores que se funden, un fondo de color que mantiene margen contra los colores de la imagen, etc. 

Este rectángulo fue enmarcado en otro rectángulo un poco más grande y de color rojo. 

El mensaje fue estampado en un círculo y combiné éste con otros círculos para la presentación gráfica del mismo.  Como toque final incluí varias lentejuelas. 

Me gustó mucho la dimensión que crean los círculos en la posición ubicada y el contraste de colores de la imagen con el resto de los elementos.  

Espero a ustedes también les guste. 

Estaré compartiendo este post y este proyecto con la gente linda de Latina Crafter. Para información sobre el reto de abril, accede este link:

Gracias por la visita.

Glitter Ice Cream

This card is a CAS style one full of fun.  

To make a Clean and Simple project does not mean it needs to have less elements or details.  Most of the time a minimalist style is related to CAS. However the real meaning of CAS style is that it should be an easy to replicate project and with relatively less complex techniques. 

This card for me is a great example of that. I started with a card base to which I added a layer of embossed cardstock.   

I then cut three ascendant in sizes shapes, the smaller one of them in vellum which I also embossed. 

Separately I stamped the image and colored. I also used glitter to give life to he image. 

Put it all together as assembled and stamped a sentiment at the bottom. 

I love the texture and dimension of the different elements but this is a card you can easily replicate using other colors and other images. 

Hope you like it.

Travel Notebooks

I love to travel but I don't travel as often as I would like. But whenever I have the chance I try to take the best advantage of my little travel.  

I love to take notes in an old fashion way. I mean... I use technology to assist me in so many ways including taking notes, but I also love to take notes in a small notebook. 

That's why I often take these little "Composition" notebooks and just cover them with patterned paper and embellishments. 

I love to personalize these little cuties and have them ready for my next trip. 

I also cover with paper the backcovers so the travel feeling is all around. 

For this one, I used patterned paper with little people and colored one of them along with his powerful sentiment I stamped in front. 

This second one was covered with patterned paper featuring little maps circles. I stamped the clock and the sentiment (half directly to paper and half in another paper for contrast)... Also used some color in spray and distressed the edges. 

This third and last one is my favorite. I used this gorgeous patterned paper featuring world map in grey and black and stamped the sentiment about the rainbow.  For the image as stamped I watercolored each rainbow line and love the contrast. 

Hope you like my mini journals. Soon to be used in Peru, Italy... who knows???
