Another woody Father's Day card

Hey there.  Tuesdays are tough... or so they say...  It's a day that it's too close to last weekend but it's not weekend... and still too far from next one... Some people still getting warm for the work week. LOL!
So, I'm showing another Father's Day card using the wood embossing design... like the one I showed yesterday.  In this case I die cut two circles before embossing the base, that was then glued to a black cardstock.
I stamped sentiments in the cut circles and I placed with dimensional adhesives using the eclipse look, with the black background.
As a final touch I glued a cord all around the rectangle and added some little buttons to the design.  Hope you like it.

Get ready for Father's Day and get /make your cards soon. :)

I Love You PAPA... card

Happy Monday.
Let's start the week making Father's Day cards...  I made a few during the weekend and will share with you within the next days.
This one is a little cute card using embossing folder, die cut shapes, and stamps.
I first embossed with wood design a piece of cardstock to place in the card base.
I then stamped the sentiments in a die cut circle, which was glued with dimensional adhesives and also framed with a larger circle shape... and this is the result. 

This is my first of the Father's Day cards I recently made.  Hope you like it.  Are you getting ready with your cards?

She's a.... ATC

Hola my friends...

As you might know, I belong to an ATC Swap group.  We just started two months ago.  The group requires to share two different ATC's per month, to each of 9 other people, and you must use Unity Stamps.

This is one of the ATCs I made for May.  It is very "Clean and Simple" .

As background where the sentiment was stamped, I used a patterned/design paper cut slightly smaller than a white card-stock base.  

I also added a jewel on top for an elegant touch.

Love the final result and I hope my friends are pleased with what they received.

Thanks for stopping by.

Imperfect Mom


Mother's Day was just two days away but want to show you this card I made...  I call it imperfect mom because when I colored the image, I wasn't feeling well and I later realized it was really very rough...  But you know I like imperfection... 

In real life I think imperfection gives you permission to make mistakes and move on... to laugh about your situations... and be able to enjoy every single aspect of life knowing it is not perfect, but it's awesome.

So it is also true that when I do watercoloring, one of the things I like most its the imperfect look.   So, sorry about the lines I didn't follow... but I love my card.

The image and sentiments are all from different Unity Stamp Co kits, but I combined to create a unique card, that I hope you like.

Have a great rest of the week! :)

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!

Made these mini mixed media tags for all our moms and just stopped by to show them to you and wish you Happy Mother's Day!

I used spray paint as base on a shiny cardstock.  then applied some modeling paste with circles stencil and let dry.

Stamped sentiment from Unity Stamp Co stamp and then added different flowers to each tag:  paper, fabric, handmade or pre-made, with jewels, with leaves, with brads...   

An eyelet for each one.... (I later added cords to all... after taking this pic).

Hope you like them.  

Again... Happy Mother's Day to all women with that blessing...  own children or not...  all kinds of mothers...  Have a great day!

Feather for a Mother

Happy Saturday pre-Mother's Day.

Hope you are having a great weekend.  I'm a bit sick... This week has been very hard in terms of keeping up healthy and achieve all the duties at work and others...   But here I am...  Today will try to stay just taking care so tomorrow I can be where I want to be. :)

I made this card the other night...  and I like the final result considering I was coughing, sneezing and dealing with watery eyes when making it ... LOL!

I wanted the feather to have different colors while keeping harmony so I used blue, fuchsia and purple.

Both the sentiments, and the image are from different Unity Stamp Co. kits.  For the sentiment in the upper corner I stamped it in a circle patterned paper and framed using dimensional adhesives.

Sequins give a final touch.  Hope you like it... and hope the recipient likes it too...  A coworker got it for his stepmom. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Under The Sea layout - PI Sketch

 Hello my crafty friends...
I made a layout using inspiration from Paper Issues friends.  It is titled Under The Sea because it's about an event we attended with that name.
Patterned paper as background features sea creatures and I love one of them has a different color standing out.

For the sketch, continue reading until the end and take a look.  I tried to follow it as close as possible even though I inverted the position of the title and embellishments...
And I also made a second page that goes at right of the main one.
I even included a photo of the tickets that allowed me to avoid any journaling because the info is all there... at least the basics as date, and so.

As promised, here's the sketch used for the layout.
Hope you like it and get inspiration. :)
