Always a friend

Hi everybody, it's me again. Last night I made another card just using some scraps I had on my basket.
I used the sketch by Retro Sketches and I made a rolled flower to play along with "Less is more" which is a challenge I love but CAS are kind of difficult to me, so I rarely do.

So here is my card. I used the Polaroid frame by Lil' Inker Designs, the sentiment is by Simon Says Stamps (card kit May 2012, You can do anything) embossed in white. I used a SU! embossing folder for the border.

Thanks for visiting, have a blessed day.

P/S If you have an extra minute please visit my blog friend Loli (El taller de los recuerdos) from Spain, she makes the most beautiful handmade flowers.

Catching up.

Hi everybody! I hope of all you are having a wonderful week.
Mine is not the greatest, but you know... it's life.
Anyway, I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 2 weeks. I've been so busy, now I'm trying to play 'catch up'.
For the last 3 weeks I've been taking an Online Card Class, called Summer Card Camp 2, even though I'm enjoying it very much and learning tons of tips, I'm soooo behind with homework that's kind of embarrassing.
Last Tuesday I made a card as a homework for  week 3, day 2 which was to use a special color combination, and a technique of the several that were demonstrated in class that day, I made a card inspired by one made by Jennifer McGuire, using embossing on a die cut.
 I don't have many dies, so I used the leaves by Sizzix cut in two different shades of brown and embossed 3 times with  Pearlescent embossing powder by Inkadinkado. I stamped the sentiment on a textured circle and finished it with a butterfly stamped on vellum, embossed in gold  and colored with markers.
Loved the challenge, as I wouldn't have used those colors together otherwise.
Here is a close-up.
Sometime last week I made this other  one, just for fun, because I love tags so much
:) and had some scraps on my desk.

Thanks so much for your visit and have a blessed rest of the week.

Christmas in July

Hi everybody! I have another card to share with you today. I used the sketch by Retro Sketches and the theme at The Paper Players, so here it is.

The papers and sentiment are SU!, ribbon and button from my stash, I cut out the tree using a die by Hero Arts and Sizzix 3 times and added together to make it 3D and added some star sequins. Pretty easy and I like the result.

Thanks for visiting. Have a blessed weekend!

Thank you!

Hi everybody!
I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.
I have some time to play today, so I made a few cards which I'm ready to share with you.
For the first one I used the Dynamic Duos colors and the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch.

 I'm linking this to Simon Says Stamps Challenge "A little Stamping" as I only use the sentiment stamp.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed week.

Mojo Birthdays

Hello everybody!
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It's finally sunny here in Huntsville (after several rainy days), so I was ready to take pictures of cards I made yesterday while it was raining. :)
I made this one using the Mojo Monday sketch, they are celebrating their 300th sketch. Wow!
So here is my take. All the papers are DCWV  'Blossom Song', the flower in the main panel is fussy cut . Love this color combo.

I mention before I have several birthdays this month, so I made another card using the Freshly Made Sketches and the Dynamics Duos color combo which was to use grey and your choice. So I used Basic grey and pink from the same DCWV stack.
Finally, just for fun, I played with some new SU! goodies and I made this Thank you card.
I used the Modern Mosaic EF and punch. The papers are Rich Razzleberry same as the ink, and Galaxy Gold by Brilliance (love this one!).
Thanks for visiting and Have a blessed week.
