Made with love...

I'm back again... long time!!! I wasn´t so well, I have a couple of health problems and my intense rutine made me very tired the last few days... but today I shake out the laziness and propose myself to do at least one card... and as I don´t want to run only in November with Christmas cards, I made today my first Christmas card of 2012!!! (this is not something I have as a resolution, but a kind of...) and it´s an easel card!!!

The image is a new stamp by Milton & Co. that I've got when I won a challenge few weeks ago, but as the envelope didn´t have any name, nor address I don´t know who sent it, only I know it came from England :) I inked it for first time and stamped it with tuxedo black Memento Ink and colored it with acuarelable pencils. As a mat I used a red cardstock.

The background is white cardstock and I used my beloved sizzix (one of my favorite tools since I've got it!) with a "Vines" folder by QuicKutz. As embellishment I used a gorgeous red ribbon with a white stitch on the edges, three red gems (Hirschberg Schutz & Co.) And the sentiment is a freebie by Create with TLC (thank you, Paulette!)


EDITED:  Is this a dog or a bear? For me, this is a dog, but in some comments I see that people see it as a bear... please, can you tell me what you see?

First time Guest Designer card

After a little break, I'm back... I was so busy last week. I am trying to get used to the new time shedule. While I was MIA I won a challenge and a candy (yeepee!!!!!!) Anyways...
A couple of weeks ago I won a guest designer spot at Lexi Creations blog challenge (yeah!)... I was invited to make a fancy fold card for this week challenge. I chose a "Joy Fold" card and you can find a tutorial here.

I used the image Ballerina trio by Lexi Creations. I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and  layered the images using foami tape. I also used glitter glue and a purple cardstock as mat for the image.

 I used a lavender double side DP from Denmark that my friend Maryann sent me a while ago and I thought it would be great for ballerinas... one of the sides for the left flap and the other side for the one where the image part is placed. I also used purple cardstock. As embellishments I used a lavender ribbon rose to secure the flap from opening and some small purple gems on two corners.

I also want to submit this card to the following challenges:

One more ballerina... a pink one

If you follow my blog you know I like ballerinas... a lot! So when I won a candy for $10 at The Greeting Farm, the first thing I looked for it was ballerinas... and I found this cute Ballet Anya.

I colored the image with acuarelable pencils and glued it to a pink mat. I made some faux stitches around the image with a  pink fine marker.

I used Pingüino dp with stripes, dots all in pink and white. I also used white cardstock to make the left down corner. I also used a pink ribbon and hand stitched to make the pleated effect. I also used pink gems as embellishments.

Birthday butterfly girl

I made this card for a birthday... Isn´t it sweet the butterfly girl? I've just got her, it's a new digi I bought at Bugaboo stamps (I love the little girls they have)... I've got the sentiment at the blog hop last Saturday for Celeste's birthday, and this freebie was available at Yolie's blog.

I colored the image with acuarelable pencils. I cut it out and placed it on a white die cut (spellbinders- blossom) and then a pink one.

I used a striped green dp and a plaid pink dp, bot of them from Printer Soyuz (the paper I can get here...), and I embellish the card with three flowers with the same pink-green color combo and a dark pink gem on each of them.

Purple beauty

Life is coming back to normal... I'm working again, my daughter is at school, the bad thing of it is less time to craft :) ... Anyways, this is a card I made today and I really like it....

The image is from A Day For Daisies and when I saw it I couldn't resist, I've got it! I colored it with acuarelable pencils and cut it out and placed on a purple die cut (spellbinders label 1).

As background I used a white cardstock and a sizzix folder from Tim Holz collection. Then I used a lilac scrap dp. I also used a lilac ribbon and two light purple ribbon roses as embellishments.

Sugar and love

OK, this is another card I made with a "The Pixie Cottage" new stamp... I like the sentiments that come with the image in this set, I chose one of them and I do like how it looks on the card.

I colored the image with acuarelable pencils, cut with a Sizzix oval die, distressed the edges with a dark pink ink pad and with a bigger die I cut the pink mat for it.

I used a yellow natural paper (it looks darker in the picture, don´t know why) and some scraps from a DCWV dp and with pink cardstock I made the mat for all the pieces.

For the sentiment I made a bow with a pink hearted ribbon and with a heart button and a pink embroidery thread I attached the sentiment to the bow and think it looks pretty cute...

When I saw the sketch challenge I thought I would make a great card, but don´t know why I don´t like how it turned out... I think I need to add something like bling or flowers... For now, this is my card, but maybe later it will change a little bit :)

Purple bear hug

Today is my last day of vacations..... :( Tomorrow I start to work again for the second semester and to tell you the truth I would like the vacations would last one more week... It's so cold outside, I don´t want to go anywhere!!! Meanwhile, I keep inking my new stamps :)

This is a very CAS card I made using bear hug from The Pixie Cottage (this is another stamp I won in a candy... psss...... there is a new candy going on, look for it on my sidebar - more stamps!!!) I colored it with acuarelable pencils. I distressed the edges with a purple ink pad.

I used a cuttlebug folder to make the background on a purple cardstock. As embellishments, I used a white ribbon with lilac dots and three purple buttons with a embroidery thread to make a knot on each of them... simple, isn't it?

Friends love us anyway...

Although I didn´t make any crafty resolution, this week I'm using all my new stuff. In this card, the stamp is the new thing I'm using, I inked it up for first time on Sunday evening and later in the week I colored it.

This is a rubber stamp by Mo Manning, I used the complete set, image and sentiment. I colored it with acuarelable pencils and distressed the edges with a dark red ink pad.

I used red cardstock and a cuttlebug folder (flourish fantasy, I think...) for the background. I used a cream ribbon with hearts and made a bow. Then I used red gems for the corners of the image. It´s a very simple card, and I like it!!! :)

With love and flowers

As I told you early this week, I start to use my new stamps... and one of them is this Tilda with basket of flowers.

I colored it with acuarelable pencils and cut out and used a die cut for the mat (label 1 nestabilities).

Then I used some scraps of DPs from my stash (one of them a glittered one). I also used a pink ribbon with hearts and made a bow, some pink bling (hearts and small gems).

I used a ribbon rose and glued it to the flower in Tilda's hand.

New Baby

My second card for 2012... Although I didn´t make any crafty resolution, I'm happy to use my stash that I wasn't using until the begining of this year... Last Sunday I brought out of the boxes some new stamps that I have never inked up and later I colored. So this is my card for today.

I used a new stamp (I luv my blankie) I've got as a candy at The Pixie Cottage (with two more...) and think this is a sweet bear for a new born. I colored it with acurelable pencils and cut it out, place it on the circle heart-ed mat.

I used yellow-orangish dp, a striped one and a heart-ed one plus yellow cardstock. I also used yellow ribbon and a yellow heart button.

First card of 2012

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After a little break, finally today I made my first card of the year.

This is a new stamp I've got recently, I inked it on Sunday!!! :) I colored it with acuarelable pencils and cut it out to place it on a kraft paper mat with foami tape. (I won a gift certificate at Jacque's blog and I bought two stamps, thsi is the first and soon you'll see the second one)

I'm using various of my dps from my stash and kraft paper combining yellow and sky blue. For the mat of the image I used a nestabilitie die cut called blossom. As embellishments I used two different ribbons and with one of them made a bow, I used three yellow flowers and three blue gems (bling).
