LCSC #59 - Tarjeta de Cumpleaños

Hola a todos. 
Por aquí aprovechando el reto de Latina Crafter y utilizando el sketch como inspiración. 

Le hice esta tarjeta a mi esposo para su cumpleaños que es hoy. 

Utilicé varios kits de Latina y también un "stencil". 

Para acentuar las formas del sketch usé papel de corcho. 

Y por dentro también le incluí algo a tono con la portada de la tarjeta y con mensajes estampados. 

Espero le guste. Se la voy a dar esta noche.  Espero que no la vea antes aquí en el Blog.  Jajajaja. 

Todavía pueden participar del reto ustedes también. El link a continuación:

Birdhouses for inspiration quest

Hello. Just one of those days I had some time but little inspiration.  Trying to relax and relieve some stress is difficult for me lately.   A combination of a lot of work  with some local economy pressure and the recent loss of my dog, among some things happening in my life. 
But I want to keep creating and finding inspiration.  So today I went for a CAS style card using stamps and sequins.  I used current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge which is related to birdhouses (link here:

I think some will like this card and some will not. But this is what creativity is always about, isn't it?  love the simplicity of the design and that I could at least dedicate some little time to my hobby though. 

Thanks for stopping by!!!

So sad to see you go...

It is so sad to admit my dog-son is not with us anymore. I really think he was an angel sent to teach us so many things. I know most people must think the same about their pets and specially dogs, but mine really was the best. 

I colored this image thinking of him. Trying to capture his shape and color I made it in a very abstract way to be able to resemble him.

First Communion

Today's the first communion of my goddaughter. It's a great day! I am sure she's very excited about today since she knows how special this sacrament is and also because we are going to be able to get together afterwards. 

I made this card using the Latina Crafter stamps. So cute!

I also used vellum and embossed paper from DCWV stacks, plus a doily, a Prima flower and more...  I wanted to make a delicate simple card as the occasion is itself. 

Hope she likes it!  You too!

No Good Bye... See you later

So sad to see a friend coworker leave her job for 16 years to move to Texas.  However, I know this is part of life and she's just living a new stage she'll enjoy a lot. Plus this is not the end of our journey as friends ... This is more s beginning. 

I made her a simple composition in a shadow box to show some love. 

The vivid colors represent the happiness our friend always shared and inspired, but mostly using blue because it's her favorite. 
The phrase "she laughs" is so true. She rally laughs out loud and always smile. 

You will see bricks representing her strength, hearts for the love she gives and sequins to demean she will shine wherever she goes. 

Finally, a clear dot representing her transparency and inviting her to always be true to herself, authentic and literally transparent. 

Besides the materials mentioned, I used Prima Color Blooms sprays, gelatos, modeling paste, cork sheets and stamps.

Hope you like it. It was made with love.

Margaritas Please!!!!

 Happy Easter my friends.
This day is precious.  Symbol of new beginnings, new life, resurrection, and love...

I hope you have a good day.

I want to share this layout I made recently.  You know I love wine, right?  But I also love margaritas.  I've decidated mini albums and pages to this delicious cocktail before, and here's another one.  

I brushed some gesso to a black cardstock and then gave a bit of green highlight with Distress Stain.
I used modeling paste with circle and chevron stencils to add some texture in specific sections of the page.
Then I sprayed color bloom in yellow and green.

I also used sequins, buttons, straws, and washi tapes, among other embellishments.

Of course I stamped the image of a cool margarita to be part of the composition as an important element.  

I reproduced the same photo fo my DH bringing two margaritas, and repeated it.  Whenever I ask him to make some margaritas for me, he does it with love and we plan a Margarita day.

Here's the whole page.  I hope you like it.  I love it. :)

Picture Perfect

Surprise!  Happy Saturday everybody!
Hope you've had a wonderful Good Friday, with families and friends and having in mind all the love God has for us.

I want to share this layout I made several days ago.  Another one of those layouts that I wanted to do without stamping or painting as I usually do, but just using old papers, scraps, embellishments and ephemera I have in my scrap room... :)

I took these photos on Christmas day...  I remember this day we were just reaxing at home after a nice Christmas Eve with family and friends.  Mom had stayed with us and we were just having fun and relaxing.  We asked Malbec (my dog-son) to get up on this couch and took some pictures... and then my DH surprised us behind...  and so Malbec did.

Hope you like this page and somehow you get inspired for your own.  Have a great day.
