My DH's birthday

Today's a very special day. My hubby's birthday!!!!!

Thank you God for life with him... in good and bad... health and sickness... some days with more and some with less...   with imperfections from one side to another but loving each other everyday ... 

He's my favorite sommelier, handyman, teacher, engineer, husband, son, friend and more.  Sometimes he's the one who puts my feet on the ground and sometimes he is there just to make me laugh. 

The only thing to wish today is for more of the same... for many many years. 

Feliz cumpleaños !!!!!

Made this card very very nervous so he didn't find me making it. LOL. It's quite simple in the outside.  Lots of circles work as a frame for the sentiment stamped in Spanish. 

The cool unique difference of he card is on the inside. Instead of a regular sentiment interior of a card, I placed a mini album photo page with different messages and photo. Unique and special for my dear husband. 

Hope you like it.

Mother's Day cards!

I really try to participate in some of the multiple activities during National Scrapbooking Day this past weekend.   However, the truth is I didn't have much time and I really didn't feel the mood when had a little.  

So I made these quick little cards last night just to liberate some of the scrapbooking desire.  LOL!

These are CAS style cards because they re easy to replicate using other elements and  colors. 

Different bases with a folder type patterned paper, a sentiment and other embellishments would do it. 

Hope you like them. Thanks for stopping by.

Never too early to create...

I made this card recently using Unity Stamp Co stamps, watercolor paints and Prima Color Sprays.

It's a Halloween theme card and I know it's kind of outdated. But it is never too early or too late to create. Inspiration comes in different shapes and can surprise you. 

Hope you like my little card and have a happy National Scrapbooking Day today!

Círculos y Rectángulos LCSC70

Hola a todos.para el reto de abril de Latina Crafter diseñé una tarjeta usando rectángulos y círculos. 

Comencé con una base de tarjeta en cardstock blanco. La vestí con un papel de diseño dejando bordes alrededor que desvelan la base y simulan un marco. 

Para la base de la imagen usé un rectángulo blanco. La imagen fue estampada y coloreada con "watercolors" para crear un "look" suave y tipo  arte o cuadro de pintura con las imperfecciones que a mí personalmente me agradan. Líneas imperfectas... colores que se funden, un fondo de color que mantiene margen contra los colores de la imagen, etc. 

Este rectángulo fue enmarcado en otro rectángulo un poco más grande y de color rojo. 

El mensaje fue estampado en un círculo y combiné éste con otros círculos para la presentación gráfica del mismo.  Como toque final incluí varias lentejuelas. 

Me gustó mucho la dimensión que crean los círculos en la posición ubicada y el contraste de colores de la imagen con el resto de los elementos.  

Espero a ustedes también les guste. 

Estaré compartiendo este post y este proyecto con la gente linda de Latina Crafter. Para información sobre el reto de abril, accede este link:    https://latinacrafter.blogspot.com/2017/04/reto-de-abril.html?m=1

Gracias por la visita.

Glitter Ice Cream

This card is a CAS style one full of fun.  

To make a Clean and Simple project does not mean it needs to have less elements or details.  Most of the time a minimalist style is related to CAS. However the real meaning of CAS style is that it should be an easy to replicate project and with relatively less complex techniques. 

This card for me is a great example of that. I started with a card base to which I added a layer of embossed cardstock.   

I then cut three ascendant in sizes shapes, the smaller one of them in vellum which I also embossed. 

Separately I stamped the image and colored. I also used glitter to give life to he image. 

Put it all together as assembled and stamped a sentiment at the bottom. 

I love the texture and dimension of the different elements but this is a card you can easily replicate using other colors and other images. 

Hope you like it.

Travel Notebooks

I love to travel but I don't travel as often as I would like. But whenever I have the chance I try to take the best advantage of my little travel.  

I love to take notes in an old fashion way. I mean... I use technology to assist me in so many ways including taking notes, but I also love to take notes in a small notebook. 

That's why I often take these little "Composition" notebooks and just cover them with patterned paper and embellishments. 

I love to personalize these little cuties and have them ready for my next trip. 

I also cover with paper the backcovers so the travel feeling is all around. 

For this one, I used patterned paper with little people and colored one of them along with his powerful sentiment I stamped in front. 

This second one was covered with patterned paper featuring little maps circles. I stamped the clock and the sentiment (half directly to paper and half in another paper for contrast)... Also used some color in spray and distressed the edges. 

This third and last one is my favorite. I used this gorgeous patterned paper featuring world map in grey and black and stamped the sentiment about the rainbow.  For the image as stamped I watercolored each rainbow line and love the contrast. 

Hope you like my mini journals. Soon to be used in Peru, Italy... who knows???

Easter Icons Card

Easter is coming soon.  Tomorrow is Palm Sunday and the Holy Week starts. Hope you have a great week. 

This card features several icons of new beginnings, nature and Easter. 

I stamped them individually and watercolored the edges for a blended look with their frames made of matching cardstock. 

Placed them all in a textured background for great dimension. 

I also used some washi tape and sequins help. 

Happy Soon to Come Easter!

Pretty Little Friend

Made this card recently and just loved making it.  I used watercolor paint to create a scenery with the help of these beautiful stamps from Unity Stamp Co. 

This girl is embracing her reality... exposing her to nature and life. Love this image. 
I colored an imperfect sky for her... so real for me... so beautiful.   And did you see her shiny glittery hair????  I know. Cool huh?

The sentiments are from two different kits but I love to do this. I combine images and sentiments from different kits all the time.  Just love to create my own match to provoke the desired emotion!

I added some out of the box elements at left. I just call it that way because these gems and piece of patterned paper just provide some interest in the design but don't necessarily are related with the created scenery. LOL   

I just loved creating this. Hope you like it and you get inspired. Thanks for stopping by.

Thank You Card

This is a CAS (clean and simple) card to say thank you. 

I stamped the sentiment using different ink colors and framed with doily and several patterned papers and sequins.  The doily was originally white and I spray painted it.  

For the flowers I watercolored cardstock, let dry and stamped the images.  I then cut and arranged in the corner for a beautiful and colorful detail. 

I watercolored also with green and hand draw the simulated leaves.

Forever In Love

I love my dear husband and this is a layout featuring one of his multiple funny faces.  Can't get enough of his good sense of humor. Love it when he's happy and funny. Of course I don't like him when he's angry once in a while... we are a normal couple. LOL!!!

I created a colorful background with watercolors and framed the photo with lots of elements. Some are from patterned paper, other are stamped images or sentiments and much more. 

In the corners I sprayed single colors and made them run to outside direction. And then added sequins or dots in coordinated hues and colors. 

Love the colorful page and the fact that my hubby is the center of it. Forever in love my love.

Beautiful Inside and Out

Love this image of this lady and love the sentiment too. 

I used watercolor paints to color the image and the background.  I then hand teared the paper to create a distressed edge. 

I then arranged patterned papers together for the card design. I even used some ribbon and lovely washi tape. 

It's so cool I am on time to still share this card in the current Unity Stamp Show and Tell challenge at Facebook. 

Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.

World of Love

I have painted images with watercolor pencils and love it. But I recently bought some regular watercolor paints to use them more for backgrounds and more flexible techniques.   I recently made a card with a multicolor background using these paintings. You can see it here:

But I had this in mind to paint a blue watercolor background for the world.  Love this Stamp and had it in mind.   So I painted the background in blue watercolor and then stamped the image with distress ink. 

I also wanted to use a powerful sentiment and reinforce  it with other elements. 
So I decided to tie the world image to a kraft card stock using eyelets and a cord. And added red elements to show the "united by love" feeling. 

The base of the card was also watercolored in the edges for a combined soft look all over. 

I already shared this card in the current Unity Stamp Show and Tell challenge at Facebook. Maybe you saw it first over there but I hadn't had the chance to share here.  

And of course will also share at Take It Make It Challenge going on at Craft Stamper Magazine blog.  It's about to end and this month I entered several times so this means I could take some time for he hobby. 
Here's the link for your reference:

Thank youuuuuu!!!

God timing is perfect...

have a friend at work. She and her husband have been wanting a child for years... since I know her she's always talked about her wishing to be a mom.   

And I am not a mother ... but I perfectly understand how important that is for most people. Some of us find ourselves in the situation of facing the probability or the actual fact of not having kids ... and some just won't stop until they explore all possibilities and do all they can to convince themselves of the idea of not having or ... at the end have success and having children. 

The important thing in the process is to understand that no matter the result you should be happy, you should enjoy life, and you should accept what God has for you.  I remember this girl to suffer a lot. And she looked for me for advice or comfort several times... because I kind of was in a similar situation except that I didn't pursue the same end as her... but understood her.  And my advice was to work for what she wanted but always thinking it is God who will decide at the end... and the right moment... and the time he thinks best...  and whatever the outcome, you have to live...
And that's only my opinion. 

But now to the end of this story... this couple will receive a 2 year old girl as their daughter very soon. Isn't this amazing?  Oh God. She's so happy... and everybody around her is too ... and I am.   But the most important thing is that God's timing is prefect. 

This card is to remind her and her husband about it. 

I watercolored the background with different colors for a unique look and feel. Love it.   Then stamped this beautiful image of this girl with her head up. Love it too. 

Finally the sentiment.  It says it all.  I hope they like the card I intend to give it to them soon. I need to get a gift for the new member of the family ...  

Thanks for stopping by. I recently shared this card in the current Unity Stamp Show and Tell challenge at Facebook. 

I will also share with my friends at Craft Stamper Magazine. Current Take it Make it challenge is an "anything goes" and I try to support it every tine I can. One, because love the work this magazine does. And two, hoping to win some candy. Why not?  LOL.

got so inspired by the current Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge that decided to make another card.  Love the use of a textured background as base for the creative design.  I used an embossing folder but actually turned over to use the design from the back side which shows the more "fluff" look. 

I sprayed some soft colors that help make the fluffy embossed textured more noticeable. 

Placed a piece of design paper to contrast colors and added the sentiment and some enamel dots. 

And I will also share this with friends on Craft Stamper Magazine for the current Take it and Make it challenge.  Link next:

Sentiment is from Unity Stamp Co.  Hope you liked my card.
