Sweet cookie

Welcome back Friends! I have a new card featuring one of the latest New Saturated Canary rubber stamp ,What Cookie. Along with NEW LDRS Creative Dies!



I started by stamping "What Cookie" stamp and colored her with CopicMarkers.





I then cut her out with an oval die and centered her on a blue DP with the  intricate oval both from the Gilded Oval Die set.


had some fun layering the center with fun colors to pop my image.
I used Creative Basic Cutting Edge Borders to trim the center and added a touch of tan lace. 
My Creative Basic Stitched Flag was used to stamp my sentiment from the Bestfriends set. I decorated with flowers and the simple touch of the Key Tailed Dragonfly to finish it off.
I had so much fun coloring her and playing with all the dies. I hope to leave you with some inspiration and you give her a try.


Thanks for stopping by my corner. 

Follow me on Insta and FB for more sharing. I do share more of my coloring in progress and just for fun colorings on Instagram.

You and Me Wedding Gatefold card



Sorry it's been so quiet but it's summer break and you know I'm out and about with the family. 
It saddens me to say that this will be my last creation with the Sabor Papel DT. I am so humbled and grateful for everything. They are just an excellent organization and will look forward to working with them in the future. THANK YOU GUYS!! Will miss you :)

Today I"m sharing a wedding Gate fold card using Sabor Papel's Amor Collection and this Tiddly Ink digi image You and Me.

I watercolored my image with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Tombow markers  



 For the card base, I used Enamorado designer paper to create the Gatefold.  



I used many LDRS creative Dies to assemble my card.

My base coloring is cut out using LDRS Creative Darling Square die set.

For the bottom trim I cut out a few cuts using the Gilded Oval Die and
in the inside for the border doors I used Creative Basic Borders I with a pretty SaborPapel CS.

 Last but not least I embellished the inside by layering a sentiment tag from the Sentimientos cut apart page over a doily.

It was kept clean and simple to add any special notes or pictures.



The Amor collection is perfect for fussy cutting.  I added the fussy cut image of la novia and el novio along with the Amor Eterno sentiment.  I inked the edges of all my cuts through out the whole card for a distress look. Everything came together so nicely.

Well thank you for visiting my blog and we'll be back very soon. Maybe tomorrow lol!

Gwen DollHouse

 I hope you're enjoying the Holiday weekend. Some of us just like to relax and craft :)
I enjoy coloring and take up some sun. I've been  going through a stage where I've been focusing on my coloring. A busy mom and all. One thing I can't stop doing is coloring because you probably heard it before YES,  It is therapeutic lol!


I need to color or I'll go crazy lol!
Today I'm showcasing Gwen from the DollHouse stamp collection.
I colored her with a combination of mediums from makers,pencils and watercoloring paints. I don't like to limit myself so if I think it needs another dimension I certainly reach for anything that will help me achieve what I'm looking for :) 

 

I used a sentiment from the Wishing You set and added stitched Flags with a simple bow. I LOVE my picture border. I used Creative Basics Background Builder I to achieve that stitched trim.


With a few pieces I created a sweet clean thoughtful card that anybody could achieve.


Wishing all my USA friends a safe holiday weekend.

Enjoy your day

Selene Greeting Farm Grad Tag


Hey peeps I'm swinging by to share my latest DT work for Sabor Papel and Passionate Paper Creations. 
With the combination of Sabor Papel cardstock and Creative Basic Dies 
my tag assembly couldn't be any more simpler :) 


I first started with this cute Digi Grad from Greeting Farm name Selene. 
I watercolored her using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. 


I then fuzzy cut her and placed her on a metallic Gold cut using  LDRS Creative Dewdrop Circle die.

I cut out a pretty back border for her using Basic Background Builders I  and I used Sabor Papel Amor /Ramitos paper for that pretty purple border.
 All was adhered down on a medallion fan fold circle  using  Papel Picado

The pink just makes everything come together and pops the image nicely.


Now for the bottom fish tail tag I used Creative Basic Stitched Flag on  Sentimientos Ole cardstock. The sentiment is just perfect for her. 
It translates ,"I wish you the best on your special day".

 and then layered them behind black sturdy cardstock.

Adding pretty black sequence on the bottom trim of the sentiment to finish it off.
I hope my tag was inspiring to you. Thank you for swinging by my corner and I'll catch you soon. Have a lovely day :)

LDRS Creative Teams Up With Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L Day 5

 Hello I'm back with yet another collaboration Hop!
Hasn't the hop been super inspirational! I hope you enjoyed it and have taken so many ideas from all these amazing products.
Thank you everyone for joining us, it's been so much fun.
Well here I am with a sweet card using
CandiBean Rubber stamp, Take My Hand.

The process started with coloring her with TimHoltz Distress Inks. I then cut her out using a Creative Basic Pierced oval. 

The process went on with layering everything to my linking with pretty soft paper color hues and adding dept using our die cuts. With the help of thScrapbook Adhesives by 3L® it made it everything work so much easier.
My favorite touch of the card was that clear envelope with my sentiment inside. I used a clear glue dot to stick a pretty soft pink bow on top and whala it was done. What a cool embellishment to add to your projects.

My sentiment is from the NEW "You" collection set. The set is full with many brilliant thoughtful sentiments and you could use them for a variety of projects as well.
Thanks again for stopping by and have a great day.

Cinco De Mayo Hop Sabor Papel and Craftwell

When Two well known Companies in the Crafting world come together SaborPapel and Craftwell to celebrate such a special event!

A quick snip what we 5 De Mayo means and why we celebrate.

Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations. Cinco de Mayo traditions include parades, mariachi music performances and street festivals in cities and towns across Mexico and the United States.


Make sure you stop by  Craftwell USA blog first to get the full details on the prizes of the hop.

 This is what I have on my blog for today's Inspiration. 
A fun festive card with a touch of Sabor.





I colored my Simply Betty digi with copic markers. I did a little color placement on her eyes, Just because I like to play with eyes. 
This digi is called Rita Limes. I just used it as a Margarita to celebrate the event :P 

CHEERS!!!!



Rita Limes Digi-



 

I just love the SaborPapel collection from Ole. The colors are so much fun to cheer up any party!

I used papel picado on my card and fussy cut many of the festive banners through out and arranging them as I wish.


Also sentimientos Ole came to play. These are just perfect for sentiments on your projects of any kind. I used the confetti green sheet as my base.


I used a few dies from LDRS Creative and created my tissue flowers using the circle die from the LDRS Square set.

I did some watercoloring to relax me from a very very busy schedule over here.
