Arbolitos Navideños - LCSC#78

Se acerca la Navidad!!!!  Ya se sienten los aires navideños. :)

Hice unas tarjetas de estilo CAS utilizando sentimientos en español de Latina Crafter.  Por eso estoy escribiendo el post en español.  Cuando uso productos de LC trato de escribir el post en español... Solo porque sí... para honrar el idioma. jejejeje

Las tres tarjetas están coordinadas utilizando la misma base de papel blanco repujado con puntitos, y creando arbolitos navideños haciendo múltiples dobleces en "cardstock" y luego dándoles una terminación con Mod Podge y diferentes adornos.


Para algunos utilicé lentejuelas, joyas, cintas...


... Para otros estrellas de fieltro, más brillantes...


... y hasta cintas bordadas y papeles de diseño.

Lo ideal fue que una vez tienes la inspiración, haces unas tarjetas coordinadas que bien puedes utilizar individualmente, o puede ser un "kit" de tarjetas para regalo.


Espero les hayan gustado mis tarjetas de arbolitos navideños inspirada en el twist de Navidad del reto #78 de Latina Crafter.  Dense la vueltita por su blog para conocer cómo participar.

Fabulous Birthday Girl


A friend at work wanted to surprise another friend with a card a birthday banner for her birthday.  She wanted these to be glamorous with the theme of shoes, bags, and bling bling... but not necessarily the pink cliché.

So I went for blue, black, silver, greens and a touch of red to make this card...



I used brads, stamps, jewels, banners, thinkers letters, rub ons, and more...  
The paper collection is an oldie... still have some from a DCWV pack... and is called "All Dressed Up".


For the banner I used same colors, same papers, and similar elements.   The letters are Thickers without colors, which I dressed with glitter to make them fabulous.



I used a red cord for the mini banner.  This is destined to be hung in kind of a closet area so the birthday girl can see when she opens the door.


Happy Birthday Cindy... Hope you like your card and banner...

Tarjetitas de Navidad LCSC#78


Hola a todos... 

Utilizando sellos de Latina Crafter con versículos de la Biblia alusivos a Navidad, hice estas cuatro tarjetas como parte de un kit.  Las voy a compartir para el reto de sketch de Latina Crafter. Ya van por el #78!!!!  Wow  este es el link con la información por si les interesa participar:   https://latinacrafter.blogspot.com/2017/12/reto-de-diciembre.html?m=1



Establecí un diseño sencillo que pudiera replicar con diferentes papeles y así repetí el proceso en todas las tarjetas.  



Primero estampé el mensaje en cardstock blanco y redondeé las esquinas.  Luego corté un pedazo de papel o cardstock para que sirviera como base del mensaje y le corté a mano el borde de la derecha para que pareciera un banderín.  Igualmente corté otro banderín para la parte de arriba y un borde para debajo y así enmarcar el mensaje.



Luego con círculos y el sello del arbolito coloqué un elemento extra en la sección de la izquierda.



Lentejuelas como toque final y ya tengo mis cuatro tarjetitas.  Espero les gusten.





Welcome Baby!

Hey there!

I made this card to welcome a little baby boy that my coworker and his wife are expecting.  So excited.  I know they will be such great parents. 


I made a scenery with baby animals to make a fun and colorful card using Autumn Leaves brand stamps.  These are so cute.  I colored them with watercolor pencils.
The blue background in the embossed paper is also painted with watercolors, and the dimensional cloud was achieved with snow marker heated ink.


The greens were achieved with different hand cut cardstocks pieces, placed in different dimensions, and then the animals positioned on them.   At the center a sticker with the word "baby".


Hope they like my card... made with so much love specially for them and the little one :).

Love Card


Love, Love, Love...

I love Love.  

I made this card full of love using a lot of lace and ribbon....  I know I know... it was very fun to make it and I love the result.

The thing is that most of the lace you see in this imperfect heart shape... is stamped.  Yes, stamped.  Isn't that cool?



Look closer and see there's some real lace and ribbon on top of the heart, and at the center... but the rest was made using stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  Sentiment is from Unity too.


To make the heart I draw it on cardstock and on the opposite site place the ribbons, then cut the shape.

The base has real lace covering some cardstock too... 


Hope you love it.

Hurricane Award

 Hello all!

As you know, we've been living quite an experience after pass of Hurricane Maria thru our beautiful Puerto Rico.  I refer to it as "experience" because I don't like to call it something negative.  It negative in the sense that thousands of families have lost their homes, but I think this "experience" has also brought a lot of blessings and learning.

We've learned to respect Nature...  We've learned that being comfortable is not synonymous of being happy.  We've been able to confirm what a large amount of things we have that we don't really need to live; and we've found happiness by giving.  There is really a long list of things we've learned but there's is one particular one I learned and is that we also need to accept help when needed.  We are very grateful of our blessings and sometimes we just think we don't want to bother anybody.

So, we have helped and we have received help  from others.



As a family activity (for fun) I created this award for a member of the family who really took the extra mile helping everybody.  He helped with his company, with support, and of course he brought us ice when we didn't have electricity... LOL!



I used a transparency in which I hand draw a hurricane shape, then cut and painted with snow marker, that when heated creates a magnificent effect.


To create the award base I used a little box, a wooden stick and chipboard pieces, which I painted with Distress Ink, and then applied Mod Podge.   The effect is awesome. It looks like wood.


We awarded my brother in law on Thanksgiving Day and it was kind of a funny activity that at the same time embraced a very serious message... We are grateful.

Hello Gorgeous!

Hello gorgeous people!   Hope you are fine.

Here I am again, sharing a card I quickly made last weekend...  I already had this beauty colored with watercolor pencils, waiting for some inspiration...


So I sponged painted the border of the card base and place a piece of paper with beautiful colored lines that was just a background to a stickers packaging from BoBunny.  Yeah... it's packaging...

I also used half doily to create a more feminine look on framing the girl.  

The banner was made with washi tapes and bakers twine... helped with sequins and dimensional adhesives...

The sentiments were stamped in scrap paper pieces... never trash them... they are useful!

Inside the card I stamped "Happy Birthday"...

Hope you liked it! :)
