Deleite en Lila


Una nueva semana comienza y estoy lista para un nuevo reto, esta vez en la comunidad de Latina Crafter en su reto No. 31. Es mi primera participación alli y me siento orgullosa de poder presentar una tarjeta en español junto con otras artesanas latinas. Aunque no tengo la fortuna de tener los sellos de la compañía se puede participar, lo cual se agradece.

Como se trata de un sketch, quise respetarlo al máximo. Siempre incorporo algunos giros en él y por supuesto incorporo varios elementos que caracterizan mis diseños. Y este fue el resultado:

Elegí hacer la tarjeta color lila... ¡Ah que bello color! Disfruté mucho hacerla. Para comenzar, texturizé la base misma de la tarjeta. Le siguen una franja de encaje blanco que cubre la etiqueta del mensaje. Luego elaboré un marco de la exacta estructura que muestra el sketch. Una vez hecho eso, lo sobre enmarqué con lo que aparece como encaje de papel estampado. Dos características importantes del diseño propuesto para el reto son los banderines, que y también el adorno, que decidí fuera un moño lila combinando con los banderines de cinta. Uno que otro cristal y voilá...

  1. Me encantó tu tarjeta... en colores monocromaticos, luce genial. Gracias por participar con nosotras en el reto del mes de Latina Crafter.

  3. Jenny, thanks for stopping by. It's a shame I didn't use any Flourishes stamp, I use them all the time. I was in the mood for a spanish sentiment card.

Pears & Flowers Step Card

You may know by now that I try to make time to create projects for some of my favorite challenges. I particularly enjoy the challenges back at the Mod Squad Challenge. This week the host is Lee... She is a great host... Love her! She challenged us to use something with a Fruit or Harvest theme... Yes, it's a Fruitful Harvest challenge!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:

I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and two pears in gold. The first are from Flourishes' Over the Garden Gate stamp set, and the last are from Inky Antics' Holy Spirit's Fruit.

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…

Dreaming of a White Christmas
gilded & elegant christmas card

I have a confession to make... This year I've been drawn to make white and gold Christmas cards. I can't even think of traditional Christmas colors when I want to make a project! So today's poinsettia card and tutorial translate very well what Christmas is gonna be like this December at home.

White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I'm sharing a quick and easy tutorial with youHERE.

I created the background myself, layering snowflake stamps in different designs, first in a very light beige, then in gold embossing. Afterwards, I dry embossed the stamped mat with a sutile polka dot design and used a brayer to apply light beige paint to the raised pattern.

As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia …
