Share Handmade Kindness

Happy Saturday!

If you read my blog, you know I’m a huge fan of Jennifer McGuire. She just launched the first week challenge where the only thing you need to do to participate is to do something HANDMADE for family or friends: cookies, a card, a cake, a bag… anything that is handmade and come from the heart.

I always try to send cards out to thank friends and family or just to let them know I’m thinking about them so I’m really happy about this challenge.

For the card I’m giving to my Mother I’ve used a stamp set from La Vida en Scrap called “Pasan las Horas” and I’ve created the background with the little acorn embossing it with white fine detail powder. Then I’ve used some of my Neocolor II for the background; I’ve used Autumn colors like brown, orange and red. For the sentiment I’ve stamp “eres especial” from a stamp set from La Pareja Creativa using the same embossing powder as before.

I hope you like it and I encourage you to join the challenge.

Creativa Barcelona 2015

Hello!

Just a quick post to let you know about how Creativa Barcelona 2015 has been for me.

I have to say that I always go to Creativa hoping to find new stamps and stores from out of Barcelona and this year, I’m sad to say, I think there weren’t many.

BUT! there where a couple of very nice stores where I found sentiment stamps in Spanish. And I was given, as well as my sisters and our Mother, a pink bracelet that says: “mi color favorito: scrap” (my favorite color: scrap) and I’m loving it! The nice woman who gift it to us was the owner of ScrapShu, a store located in Barcelona.

Also, the brands for the stamps in Spanish are Cocoloko, La Vida en Scrap and Gigetmoi.

I’m already doing a card using one of the stamp sets I bought… waiting for the masking liquid to dry so I can start watercoloring.

One last little thing more… the Crazy Birds thinlits are mine! I finally decided to buy them today while in Creativa and I can’t wait to start using them.

 

Halloween card

Hello to everybody!

I know I haven’t posted anything for some time, I apologize. Real life got in the way.

But I’ve been very productive and I’ve done a lot of cards, not a lot of videos though. I’ll be posting them on the blog with pictures.

But for today… a Halloween card!

For the background, I’ve used a stamp from Prima that I stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Gold Princess from Ranger.

After coloring a couple of the images from the Mama Elephant stamp set Bootastic with Copic I’ve added some dimension with the bats and spider.

I’ve used the Grassy border from Lawn Fawn to create the space where I’ve embossed the sentiment with Gold Princess from Ranger too.

Hope you have a nice Halloween!

Hello all!

My voice is still not completely back so the video is subtitled again, sorry!

I’m currently in the middle of another card that I will try and post as soon as I can, hopefully Thursday.

Also, a couple of weeks ago I bought a stamp set and its coordinating dies from The Ton and I can’t wait to use it so you might get more than 1 video this week.

Hope you liked the card and I’ll “see” you soon!

Life your life in color!!!

Hello everyone!

I’m down with the flu and my voice is almost gone but I wanted to share a card with you this week.

 

IMG_5689I’ve used a stamp from Create a Smile that I bought this summer because I fell absolutely in love with it. I wanted to make a card using a rainbow color so I took my Mama Elephant pigment inks. I’ve done one ink at a time. Once I had all the image stamped, I’ve embossed it with Ranger Clear Super Fine Detail powder.

I’ve stamp the sentiment from an Alley Way stamp set in a blue piece of cardstock and embossed it with Ranger Pink powder.

And now for the big finish… I’ve used the Quinn’s ABC dies from Lawn Fawn on white cardstock 4 times.

Then, using toner paper, I have added foil with my laminator. Once I had that pice of paper with blue foil, I’ve cut the letters for the word “color” one last time.

And once I had everything, I simply put it all together.

I see now that you can’t really appreciate the foil but I will try and take another picture on Sunday and I will post it on my instagram so you can see it better, maybe an instagram video?!

Hope you like it!
