Hoy les comparto una de mis tarjetas favoritas de las que he hecho para esta Navidad.  Espero que a ustedes también les guste.

La base de la tarjeta está cubierta con tela de saco color rosado, y adorné con papel de diseño y "doily" para empezar.  Luego estampé la imagen principal y coloreé con distintos medios.  Además, incluí dos mensajes estampados.

La combinación de colores no es tradicional para Naivdad, pero me gustó mucho el resultado.  Un poco de brillo y lentejuelas aquí y allá dan un toque mágico y especial a mi tarjetita.

Esta es la penúltima tarjeta de mi sorteo de Navidad.  Puedes leer sobre las reglas y el premio AQUI.  Visita mi página de facebook, dale like a los 10 posts relacionados a las tarjetas de Navidad y ya estarás participando.

Peace to the World... that is what everybody would love for Christmas...  Even with all the bad situations in life, war, hunger and all... I think life is good.  Hope your Christmas season is turning out to be a great on for you and your loved ones.

This is my 5th card of the contest going on in my facebook page.  You can read about it HERE.

My Christmas Tree

Hello my friends.
Another Christmas during which I do not want to overspend too much in tree ornaments or decoration. I have some from many years and we've managed to make the most out of them.  And we've also had some  years with very peculiar Xmas trees with some crazy ideas...  But this year I'm using the same old ornaments I bought about 18 years ago...

But... what I did is that I combined those old ornaments with some new fresh and handmade rosettes, so I deceive myself thinking I have a new Xmas tree. :) LOL!

Here are some photos of the rosettes.  This one is beautiful and big... made with two same color/style papers.  Cute Santa in the middle is from Unity Stamp Co.

This other one using one paper and leaving it unfinishing the circle, with an Unity peace sentiment in the center.

This cute stamped Xmas tree was with the latest Craft Stamper magazine.  Isn't it cute?

Another Unity sentiment, with wings... :)

This one very simple and elegant.  I love it.

Another big one with the beautiful Itty Bitty Xmas tree, followed by another version of it.

Oh. I love this one... made with different colors of cardstocks and one of them is spray painted.  The edges are cut with a beautiful punch.  Very delicate.

Cute Santa? Present again.

And a few with plain circles in the center...

Here's one side view of the tree ...  It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.  Hope you like my tree.  Leave a message for a chance to win, since I will link this post up to the next Unity Stamp Co hop.

Have a beautiful Xmas!

Halloween Layout

We usually have a Halloween contest at work every year.  Our department somehow has always been in the top 3.  But more than that, we really enjoy our costumes and love to celebrate this day in a very positive and good way.  This year we didn't have the contest, but we decided to work in our diguises anyway and the truth is that we had such a blast.
We decided to be super heroes.  So we had a Wonder Woman, a Batgirl, the 4 Ninja Turtles (Girly versions; I was one of them), Captain America, Superman, Spiderman and Batman.

I made a page about it. I included three photos... one of the whole group, one of the Ninja Turtles and a solo...LOL!

Love my page. Have a memory of this day and the good times I had with my friends and co-workers.  Hope you like it too.  Have a great week.

LCSC#53 - Una tarjeta de Navidad

Saludos querid@s amig@s latin@s.

Aquí les comparto una tarjeta hecho con la inspiración del sketch de Latina Crafter #53.  La compartiré en el blog de Latina Crafter junto a otros bellos proyectos que por lo regular comparten, y al final realizan un sorteo.
Al final del post, verás el sketch y un link para este reto por si deseas participar.

Para la tarjeta usé un base de "kraft" cardstock, y ensamblé un fondo con varias tiras de papel de diseño.  Tengo que admitir que estos papeles son bien "viejitos" pero siempre guardo literalmente los "scraps" de papeles pensando en momentos como estos en los que puedo necesitar pedacitos sin necesidad de usar un papel nuevo.

Con el "die" de "Polaroid" corté en rojo un marco aunque mi intención no era que se viera completo, pero no quería utilizar un pedazo de papel entero o sólido, sino que quería que se viera el fondo de las tiras de colores.  Los Reyes Magos al igual que el mensaje, son sellos de Latina Crafter.

Finalmente, con tela de saco (burlap), hilo, pedazos de sorbetos de papel y un cascabel, coloqué más adornos a la tarjeta.

Espero les haya gustado... ya quiero seguir haciendo tarjetas de Navidad para que no llegue el 25 de diciembre y me tome por sorpresa.  

Aquí el link del reto del sketch #53 de Latina Crafter:  AQUI.

Wedding Card

Today is a beautiful day! Hope your Saturday is full of joy. 
I am sharing today a wedding invitation I recently designed for a friend coworker.  She will have a very close friends and family wedding today and she will sure be radiant.  She's a beautiful young woman with great future. 

I embossed vellum to make a sleeve and embellished with gold jewels around it. 

The base paper is gold and was bent in three parts to make the invitation. 

Inside, white cardstock with embossed patterns in the sides, and the text in the center. 

Very simple yet delicate and elegant. Hope you like it. 

Have a great weekend!!

Twins Baby Shower

Hello there. 

We were recently invited to a baby shower. My neighbors are expecting twins.  They've been waiting for this moment for several years. The twins will be girl and boy. 

I made a card for the family. I used these oldies Unity Stamps on Kraft paper and represented tge family.  Then, with a mask, I covered the stamped images inside a heart shape. I mixed some modeling paste with acrylic paints and used a stencil to apply blue and pink in opposite sides.  

The sentiment is a rub-on and the stencil is from Latina Crafter. 

The achieved dimension and textures are awesome.  

Hope you like this card project as much as I enjoyed making it. 

I will be sharing this post with Unity Tuesday hop so if you leave a message or comment, you will have the chance to win with Unity. 

Have a great day, week, month...

Otra tarjeta de Cumpleaños!


Si me visitaron en mi más reciente post notaron que les comenté sobre otra tarjetita que les compartiría hoy. 

Para esta tarjeta urilicé sellos de cumpleaños de Latina CRAFTER. Opté por ubicar los globos en el centro sin colorear y añadir color a través de papel de diseño. 

Corté varios "inchies" o cuadritos de una pulgada, de distintos papeles y formé un patrón en la base de la tarjeta, que rodeará la imagen estampada. 

En la parte de abajo el mensaje encima de un listón de papel. 

Espero les haya gustado.  Voy a compartirla con LC en su link de proyectos de cumpleaños. 

Que tengan todos excelente semana.

De Cumpleaños @ Latina CRAFTER

Saludos amigos.  

En Latina CRAFTER exhortaron a subir proyectos coloridos o del tema de cumpleaños para unirnos a la celebración del día especial de una de las miembros del equipo de diseño. 

Aprovecho que esta semana tengo varios cumpleaños que se aproximan y por eso hice algunas tarjetas. 

Les comparto esta tarjetita que hice con los "stencils" de "banners" de LC.  Utilicé varios colores de tintas para lograr el colorido solicitado.  El mensaje también es un sello de LC por supuesto. 

Espero les haya gustado.  Mañana les mostraré otra tarjetita que hice también pensando en compartir según solicitado por Latina CRAFTER.  Espero verlas por aquí  y leer sus comentarios.

Happy 50th Bday to my bro!

My brother turned 50 today!  Wow!  What a blessing. I guess that having my dad passed away at 46 makes me feel even more grateful about aging. 
My brother has been through a lot.  He's had a kind of crazy life. Not only because he is no saint but also because life has given him a lot of lessons. I think most of his experiences are rich and even though some are bizarre, I think he should write a book about it.  We could learn from him about the things to do... And not to do. And we will sure laugh a lot. lol. 

Anyways, I made this card for him. I cut several shapes for an irregular unique banner, including the stamped magic little number, of course. 
I used a sentiment from another kit and combined with buttons and cord. 

Hope you like it.  I am sharing with Unity Tuesday  hop tomorrow. Leave a comment for a chance to win. 

Have a great week.

Christmas Card

Christmas already?  No, no, no....  Unless we are talking about start making Christmas cards with time, we should be enjoying October and November holidays before Christmas is here.  Don't you think?  some people are already decorating with Christmas theme since the beginning of October.  I just wait until Thanksgiving has arrived.

But yes, I made a Christmas card in advance.  I assembled a vintage Christmasy look with strips of papers to which I distressed the edges.

I stamped several images from Unity Stamp Co.  The main one was stamped in the background, but also stamped on craft paper and partially cut to be placed on top for dimensional look.  I also used washi tape and enamel dots.   And I bet you didn't notice the cord around the composition framing it all... Did you?

Hope you like it.  Merry Christmas.

I'm sharing with Unity Fun Hop Tuesday.  Leave a message for a chance to win.

Take It and Make It Challenge - Craft Stamper Magazine

Sunday Sunday... It's kind of rainy today at home (Puerto Rico), but we've been waiting for this for a while.   Our island has been through a drought for more than six months now.

Anyway, I am sharing a special ATC I made for the Take It and Make It Challenge from Craft Stamper Magazine.  You can read more about it in the blog, linked HERE.

This beautiful girl is from Unity Stamp Co.  Love the way she is and is not smiling, and irradiates calmness... while at the same time you can't tell if she's happy or not.  Plus, naturally beautiful.

I stamped it in a canvas ATC and colored with watercolor pencils.

Then I created a mask to protect her while I used distress inks and sponge dauber to color her background.

I then inked the edges and reinforced the background with metallic Gelatos(R).  So sad you can really see the shining effect in the photo but it's kind of cool.

Finally, I also made the colors darker on this lady and loved the final result.

Hope you liked it too.
