White Xmas

The Almost Friday...

Remember last week's wine bottle tag with an adorable snowman?  Well, here's another project with that stamp from Unity Stamp Co. It's  a little tag for Christmas. 

The base is made from canvas. I applied some gesso and then stamped the sentiment.  The snowman was stamped separately in cardstock and embellished with glitter. Then cut and adhered to tag. 

I then applied some glossy accents asymmetrical pattern to cover with white glitter. I love how this resembles snow.  Some sequins at the end are always a nice touch.

Let's get tipsy!

Here's a tag I made with festive funny message "Let's get tipsy". These stamps are from Unity Stamp Co. I love all wine related stamps and I have so many ideas for more!!!!    Gotta love wine and stamps too! LOL. 

For the tag I used a base of corrugated carton.  The I added foil vellum and a cork paper piece. 

I stamped the images and cut before placing with dimensional adhesives. Then finished some touches with sequins and glitter. 

The result was a tridimensional fun tag!!!   Hope you like it.

Xmas Card

Hola Friends...

Here's another card made with another project.  First intended to be a Christmas tree ornament, and then used as a central focal point of a beautiful card.

This time I used some awesome borders in a bright green to contrat the gold-vellum paper.

In the center, the embellishment with a stamped image from Unity Stamp Co.

Some sequins also were added for a final nice touch.

Here's a front view of the card.  Hope you like it as much as I do.  :)

Tag para Botella de Vino

Hace poco les compartí un tag para botella de vino y espero les haya gustado mucho.  Si no lo vieron AQUI pueden ver el post donde se los compartí.

Ese mismo día hice otro tag con sellos de Latina Crafter,  y no se los había compartido aún.

Utilicé ventaja del papel de diseño para adornar en torno a la imagen ya impresa en la base.  Estampé las frases y corté en tiras, además de colorear los bordes.

A ciertos elementos y detalles de las imágenes les agregué "glossy accents" y brillo (glitter), y así le di vida y dimensión al diseño.

Espero les haya gustado este otro proyecto de Navidad ue les comparto.  Sigan pendientes a más proyectos que seguiré compartiendo.

Mixed Media Tag

 Hello friends...
I am so happy to share with you this tag.  This is one of those project you really really love to see how they came out...  We all love our projects and each of them has a different meaning, reason to be and style... at least that's my case... but there are projects and there are projects. 
This tag was made inspired in current mood board from Mixed Media Place blog.  You can see more details HERE.  And... refer to the mood board at the end of this post.
The colors are fantastic and all the photos were literally very inspiring.  And the quote really made me think of new beginnings, and how each day is a miracle itself.
So I used flowers and leaves that I painted with Color Bloom sprays, and also stamped leaves in the composition.  I used lots of elements and materials... cork, pearls, glitter, sequins, stamped images and sentiment, metals, modeling paste and so much more... Can you find all these?

For the process I first painted the tag with gesso, than applied stains inks.  I also used a stencil with modeling paste to which I then applied spray colors.  Once dried I stamped leaves and then positioned the painted flowers, leaf and cork heart as desired.  For specific spots I used pearls, glitter, glossy accents and sequins, plus the metal chain.  I stamped the sentiment and cut the phrase and then placed with dimensional adhesives.  Finally, tied some burlap cord and I think that was it. 
Hope you like it... I will share with my friends on Mixed Media Place.
Have a great weekend.


Bolsita de Navidad LCSC #66

Feliz viernes...

Ya se sienten los aires navideños...  Espero que estén pasando un buen tiempo durante estas fiestas y las celebraciones relacionadas a la conmemoración del nacimiento de nuestro Jesucristo, que es el verdadero significado de la Navidad.

Les comparto una bolsita de regalo adornada para la Navidad.

Utilicé sello de estampar, "wood veneer" y botón de metal para establecer el tema y mensaje de Navidad.  Los tres son de Latina Crafter.

Los coloqué cuidadosamente sobre un "doily" y también añadí una flor de pascua.

Varias lentejuelas añaden un toque final.  La bolsita cierra con un "pinche" de madera.

Espero les haya gustado. La estaré compartiendo con mis amigos de Latina Crafter como parte del reto de diciembre.  Hay un sketch y un reto de Navidad. Más información aquí:

Cardinal Merry Christmas card

Hello my friends.  Here's another Christmas project to share with you.  For this card I used another project previously made as a tree ornament.  You can see it HERE.  I decided to take the ribbon out from original project and use it as an embellishment and central element of this card.

For the original embellishment I stamped an image and colored, and then used multiple layers of cardstock to create a nice dimension over double doilies.

Combined with ribbon, and patterned paper I assembled the final card... and I like it.

Merry Christmas.

White Christmas bottle tag

Hola amigos y amigas!

Hope you are having a great holiday season. We sure have lots of fun and party at home during Xmas. Our traditional holidays include lots of food, music, drinking, party and more. All these without forgetting about the real meaning of Christmas.  Sounds contradictory but it's just our culture. You cannot imagine Christmas in Puerto Rico without all these elements. 

We don't have snow. No, we don't. But we love snowmen and the idea of a white Xmas. Crazy people. LOL!

Love the inspiration that current Take it Make it challenge from Craft Stamper magazine is featuring in its blog. It's all about white Xmas. 

I decided to make a gift tag. Ideal for a Xmas present it it is a wine bottle. LOL it is a wine bottle tag. 

I enjoyed making this project so much. I cut the tag and the open circle. Then bent the corresponding line to make sure I have the base all set before embellishing. 

To embellish I first applied some gesso for whiter base; then stamped some snowflakes with blue with the intention to later smooth with more white and end up with just a touch of blue. 

I placed a doily and stamped over it doing some silver embossing with the same intention as with blue...end up with just a touch. 

I stenciled some modeling paste which I love to work with to provide great texture; then I stamped the snowman and the sentiment. To the snowman I added some glossy accents and glitter; and to the sentiment I added an acrylic circle to emphasize the word "enjoy". 

Finishing touches include more glitter, white and tornasol sequins and more.  The circle hole was surrounded with a ring that was originally from a patterned paper but I added some gesso to make it opaque. 

At the back I also added journaling lines and embellished to provide the space for the message. 

Hope you like it.  I am linking it up to Craft Stamper mag blog link for the chance to win a great prize. Crossing fingers already. 

Happy day!

Little Xmas gift bag!

Hello friends. 

I've been looking forward to make more Xmas projects but so little time to do so.  

I embellished this fun little bag with Xmas spirit  now it is ready for the holidays and more!

I stamped this precious tree and heat embossed for a glossy beautiful look. I also used washi tape and sequins. 

For the tag I stamped a little one with "to" and "from" info and added a tree cutout from patterned paper then tied with bakers twine. 

I used color inspiration from current Unity Show and Tell inspiration challenge happening in Facebook.  Gotta love it!

Cheer Up card!

Hello Friday!

I made this card with a cheer up comfort  message... somehow inspired in latest Latina Crafter sketch challenge but didn't post it on time so I am sharing anyway LOL. 

I divided Card base in two sections. Bottom one was to place the sentiment stamped in a doily. Upper side was to display beautiful clouds which I stamped with rain but also stamped separately and added glossy accents then cut and placed them for dimension and great texture. 

I used glitter tape to divide the sections and love the final result. 

This paper used for the card was actually a scrap I had from papers that beautiful Diana from LC provided for a free class given recently. So it's all directly or indirectly Latina Crafter after all. LOL. 

Have a great weekend.

Mixed Media Mini Album Cover

I recently documented in a mini album, some memories from a little escape we had in Dallas.  I had a business travel and decided to go with hubby several days before and know a bit about the city and surroundings and also having the opportunity to see some friends who have moved to Texas. 

I used some self made pages combined with Simple Stories pages, photo sheets and dividers. The covers were made from scratch though and I used several media to create it. 

The surface were sprayed with color and then I created some texture and dimension with modeling paste and a stencil. 

I then created a thematic area of interest using a corrugated carton tag tied with a little rope. Also a painted burlap shape cut with spellbinders. I even used some symbols of the state of Texas such as the white star and the cowboy... and a boot. 

I decided to add a title and turned the u's into a's ... the way any scrapbooker would do it right? LOL. 

Hope you liked this cover.  I enjoyed making it. Just to have a little time to "create" it, is just amazing!

Christmas Card

I love to participate in challenges that would make me do different things. What about black and white Christmas?  You've heard  white.. but no black and white. 

I actually don't necessarily live white Christmas either. In Puerto Rico we have a pretty colorful Christmas if we refer to weather. However, being part of US we do believe in snowmen, and all the season symbols we all love. 

Unity Stamp Co proposed a black and white Christmas theme for current Facebook challenge so I went for it. The inspirational photo also shows some gray and silver shades so I decided to use some of that. 

But I also had in mind an Anything Goes challenge happening at Craft Stamper magazine blog, which I love, so this creation was made thinking on this too. Here's the link:

I stamped snowflakes onto vellum with embossing clear ink and used clear and silver powders.  I cut some flakes with circle cutter and others with scissors according to their shapes. 

Love my handmade unique snowflakes embellishments arranged with sequins to frame the sentiment stamped in textured embossed paper. 

I will share with Unity friends and with Craft Stamper magazine friends. Hope you like it as much as I do and as much as I hope they like it so I can win some candy. lol. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Special Card

A friend lost his father recently. It's so sad to know someone you care about lost a loved one.  You suffer when you see others suffering or think about how would be your feeling in the same situation. You are never prepared to lose someone. 

I made this card so a group of coworkers could write a message for him.  Had to be q a simple card with seriousness and also to reflect our solidarity in this sad situation. So I  used these Unity stamps and I am really glad with the result. 

I stamped the feather in vellum and cut by hand.  Stamped the sentiment over embossed paper and it came out fine. 
Hope you like it.

Just Because card...

Here I am sharing a card with you. Initially thought for it to be for a sympathy message to a friend but changed my mind and ended up with just an inspirational message card. 

I used Unity Stamp Co stamps and played with tag shapes and spray paint. 
Also used some corrugated paper, twine, and sequins. 

Inside message is : God timing is perfect. 

I hope you like my card.

50 years wine card

Hello friends. 

I am sharing a card I made for a wine friend. 
We were invited to share a surprise get-together to celebrate his 50th birthday last night.  

He is a wine lover so I was very happy to use these awesome stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  And especially wanted to use this humor stamp again. It's not a phrase you can tell everybody. LOL. 

I added some "stains" using ink and stencils.  The main image was stamped and cut and then I added a black edge cutting it into cardstock.  I used the bottles stamp as a background and additional main element. 

With stickers I added his initials and the age number to personalize the card. And finally a strip of cork for another wine detail. 

Hope he liked it.  Gifts were given at the event and I guess he'll open them today. 

Tks for stopping by.

LCSC#64 El Viejo Oeste

Hola a todos. 

El reto de Latina Crafter para este mes es inspirado en el Viejo Oeste. Me pareció una tremenda oportunidad para hacer una página con unas fotos que tenía de una visita al Billy Bob's Texas precisamente en el pueblo del Viejo Oeste, o los Stockyards en Fort Worh, Texas. 

Nos tomamos una foto simulando estar en un rodeo y compramos varias pequeñas con la idea de quedarme con estas dos para una página de scrapbooking. 

Así que sin pensarlo estoy participando en el reto de Latina Crafter. 

Espero les guste mi banner con doilies pintados, cartón corrugado, lentejuelas y mucho más. 

La chapa de botella convertida en embellishment al lado de las fotos es de una cerveza típica de Texas, llamada Lone Star. 

Si quieren acceder al reto de LC para participar, este es el link:

Gracias por su visita y por sus comentarios.  howdy y'all!

What a beautiful day!

Today I am sharing with you a double mini canvas I made with the Autumn/Fall theme. I wanted it to be a composition of multiple pieces that went together so that's why I stamped the image and then cut in two pieces. 

The canvas was painted with distress stain. Then the stamped image was painted with gelatos and watercolor pencils. 

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in vellum and placed with cardstock in the back. 

Also added some sequins for the glamorous touch.  I think I will later add a thin layer of mod podge cause this is still wet ... look at my fingers after have taken the photo. LOL. 

I will share this beauty with my friends in Unity Show and Tell for she current challenge using an Angie Girl.  And will also link to current Autumn theme Take It Make It challenge in Craft Stampers Magazine:

Thank you for stopping by friends.

Mixed Media Vintage Card

Happy Thursday.  
I recently made this card with a vintage romantic look for a change.  And I used multiple media for a fun process. 

I bent a piece of paper and I distressed the edges with "stain".  Then I stamped a background on it with ink and later wrinkled it for an older look too. 

I used some oldie elements such as the key charm in the cord which I also painted with the "stain" ink and added the flower and doily for the romantic look. 

The sentiment was stamped then cut and inked too.  The image of the inker was stamped and cut to place it with dimensional adhesive. 

I think I achieved the vintage look using mixed media. How do you like it?
