Happy Easter!

Hello! ...and Happy Easter!!!
This is one of the most important times in the year, together with Christmas, it´s the best time in the year. We were the reason for Jesus to come and to die. We were the reason in God's plans for Jesus to go to the cross and leave His life there. God wanted more than anything to be in good relationship with humankind. You and me. I really wish you a Happy Easter. Time to celebrate Jesus' life and sacrifice. Time to celebrate Salvation.
I would like to show you this card I made. As the image is so pretty, I made a CAS card to have the gorgeous frame as protagonist. One layer and not embellishments... very CAS!

The image is the freebie for this forthnight at Imagine That! progressive challenge. I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. I used some glitter glue to make some details and give some bling.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Sketchy Friday #13

Hello! TGIF!!!!!! Isn't it Friday the best day of the week??? I love Fridays!!!!!

Today I want to show you a new card I made for our challenge at Sketchy Friday:

This is the fab sketch for this week:

I used Kitty Kitty by SKdigis. Isn't she the cutest? I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils, cut it out and placed it on a tag shaped mat.

I used 2 different dp from a DCWV glitter pack, the light one for the tag and the dark one for the background (its borders distressed with a distress tool), I also used some butter color cardstock to mat the card and the sentiment.

As embellishments I used a light pink rick-rack and a paper flower with three pieces of bling (pink rhinestones).

I hope you like the card and feel inspired to play with us following this fab sketch by Sonia.

Kraft paper at Gingerloft

Better later than never... I am late on posting this card, I was very busy so I didn´t have time before, but I want to show you my card and invite you to participate in our challenge at Gingeloft this forthnight: KRAFT PAPER.

I used Animal Collage and colored it with Koh-.i-noor acuarelable pencils. I used kraft paper for the mat.

I used Africa paper and leaves (both of them Folia) and used some more kraft paper to mat it. The circle detail I made it with kraft paper and circle dies (Sizzix).

The only embellishment is a brownish button, a kind of safari tipe. I think to use kraft is a good option for masculine cards and a button is enough to embellish it!!!

I hope you like my card and play with us this week at Gingerloft challenge.

Fancy fold at Digi Makeover

Hello and happy Monday!
How are you doing? I had a very busy long weekend.We had holidays since Thursday because of Nauryz celebration, so we went to the parades and some of the celebrations, my mom came to visit us and she will stay with us two months, it was my daughter's birthday... I feel exhausted!!!!!!!!!!!
Let's go to what is important today, I made this card:

This week at Digi Makeover challenge we have a fun one: Fancy Folds. We would like to see any card that is not only folded in two. You only need to follow the theme and use a digi. If you visit the other DT blogs, you will have other fancy folds to feel more inspired :)

I wanted to try this one I never did before: Half Cut Die, I found tutorials here, here, here and here.

I used Lucy Mouse, I love this little cutie... and colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. I cut it out and placed it on a white cardstock cut with a Sizzix circle die.

I used red cardstock and made the half cut with "Blossom" Nestabilities die cut. I  used a flower embossing folder for the half to fold up.

The sentiment is by Create with TLC and placed it on a red mat.

Some other views:

 I hope you fell inspired to make a fancy fold this week and participate in our challenge. You can win gorgeous digis!!!

Birthday invitation cards

This week it's Vicky's birthday and she wanted to have Minnie's decorations. She told me she is a little bit tired of princesses, so this year we go for a change!!! I saw this idea in many places browsing on internet, if you google the words "Minnie Birthday" you'll have tons of ideas...

I made the mouse shape using three circles of black cardstock, put them together and voilá, card is ready.

I download for free the two fonts "Walt Disney script" and "Mickey ears", then  I printed the text and cut it with a smaller circle die.

For the girls I made Minnie (the card with bows) and for the boys, Mickey (no bows). I feel a little bit dissapointed as I couldn't find dotted pink/red ribbon. But I think still look good.

The best thing is that Vicky helped me cutting all the circles, she was so happy... it´s good when the kids can participate in some ways to preparate their birthday, isn't it?

I would like to enter this simple project in the following challenges:
The Pretty little ribbon: Happy birthday
Creative craft chalenges 2: for the kids

Creative creations: letter B (bows)

Today, I want to show you a new card I made for our weekly challenge at Digi Makeover:

I used "Moody for Dragonflies" by Paper Makeover Stamps and colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils. I cut it out and placed it on a double mat cut with Labels 1 (Spillbinders).

I used some natural recycled paper for the background, Alt paper (circles) and butter cardstock and embossing folder for the different layers.

I used a pink flower ribbon, made a bow, I used a dragonfly charm attached to it. I also put a bunch of paper pastel flowers with some rhinestones for their centers.

Angel card 2

Ok, here we go with the second card I made for the Progressive Freebie challenge at CDAC. This one is more masculine, because of the color and the no embellishments fact...

The same as the card before, I printed and colored long ago with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and this one cut it out and placed it on a butter color cardstock.

I used Alt blue w/ silver microcorrugated cardstock and butter cardstock.

I placed the sentiment using foami tape to give some dimension.....

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
CDAC: progressive chalenge
CAS(E) this sketch: sketch #19

Angel card 1

How are you today? Are you enjoying your weekend? Today was cloudy and rainy here, not cold, but didn't invite to go out... Great to craft a little bit... :)
I want to show you this card I made for the progressive freebie challenge at CDAC that ends on the 31st of this month.

I printed and colored it long ago, but didn't feel inspire to make the card :(... I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and distressed the borders with yellow and orange ink pad.

I used some Alt microcorrugated cardstock. I also used some yellow-orange cardstock and a texture folder. I always make the same thing and don't learn... Why I color first the image and then look for the papers??? It's so hard to work like that!!!!!!

I made the flowers with a punch and some white rhinestones.

Flowery birthday

Hi, again!
On Sunday is one of my best friends birthday and she love gardening (today I pass by her house and she was gloves on, cuting some branches and trying to make her garden nicer for the spring...) and made this card for her:

I used a D2D (Now From the Heart stamps) image I've got recently called Dotty and her friends. I colored it with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and cut it out. This image goes perfect for my gardener friend, I colored it with her colors and loving her flowers...

I used some chinese paper for origami that I've got as a gift a while ago, I felt the colors were the right ones for this card... I also used some beige and green cardstocks. I made some stitches in the squares with a green glitter pen.

Then, I used two different ribbons and made a double bow (I love how it looks the double bow!) and used 4 cold porcelaine flowers (that I have for ages...) to complete the sketch. I just realize watching the pics, I forgot to put the sentiment... that would be tomorrow, now I feel tired to do it and take new pictures! It´s more than 1 a.m....

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
I{heart} sketches: sketch #9
Catch the bug: green thumb
Whimsy Inspires: stitches
Just add Ink: just add green
Forever friends: lots of flowers

Christmas in March

In the begining of every year I say I will do Christmas cards during he year, but I never did... until this year!!!
Back in January I saw this Christmas challenge at Lady Anne's challenge blog and thought this woul be a good way I will do at least a couple of cards every month... This is the first for March.

I used this cute image with the girls singing by Stamp 'n Doodle... I love the one in the middle so concentrated, love her expression! I colored with Koh-i-noor acuarelable pencils and used some glitter glue to make some details (in red and green). I used a green cardstock as a mat of it.

I used music dp and some green cardstock that looks like velvet, the texture is awesome... I also used red cardstock for the mat and for the circle.

The only embellishment are some red rhinestones in the corners of the image.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says: sketch #1
