Latte Birthday / Latte Cumple / Latte Niver

How pretty is this card, huh? This color combination is one I´ve been wanting to use. And for the first time in this blog I´m showing you a card in Spanish! Which is great. It is really hard to find good stamps in Spanish. I found this one after a long search at Stampendous. I love the font also.

This is a gatefold card I decorated with Spellbinders Adorning Squares mixed up with the smallest die of the Delicate Doilies set. And of course I had to add some pearls and crystals (I confess I´m addicted to embelishments!). I happened to find a ribbon 
today that matches perfectly with my Brilliance Pigment Ink in Pearlescent Beige, which is more like sand or latte color.

You know, I have a little son who´s turning three very soon. He´s in that stage... That spontaneous and loud stage:) I love him dearly.  May the Lord protect and bless him in every step of the way and may He give me wisdom to raise him in the best way possible. Having said that, I dedicate this birthday card post to him.

Qué tan bonita es esta tarjeta, ah? Esta combinación de colores es una que he estado queriendo usar. Y por la primera vez en este blog les muestro una tarjeta en español! Lo cual es grandioso. Es muy difícil encontrar buenos sellos en español. Encontré este, luego de una larga búsqueda en: Stampendous. Me encanta la letra también.

Esta es una tarjeta con pliegue de puerta que decoré con Spellbinders Adorning Squares mezclado con el corte más pequeño del set Delicate Doilies. Por supuesto, tenía que agregarle perlas y cristales (confieso que soy adicta a los adornos!). Resulta que encontré una cinta que combina perfectamente con la tinta Brilliance Pigment Ink en color Pearlescent Beige, que en realidad es más como color arena o latte.

Saben, tengo un pequeño hijo que cumplirá tres muy pronto. Él está en esa etapa... Esa etapa espontánea y escandalosa:) Yo lo quiero muchísimo. Pido que el Señor lo proteja y lo bendiga en cada paso del camino y que Él me dé la sabiduría para criarlo en la mejor manera posible. Habiendo dicho eso, le dedico esta publicación de cumpleaños a él.

Não é lindo este cartão, ein? Esta combinação de cores é uma que tenho querido usar. E por primeira vez neste blog mostro para vocês um cartão em espanhol! O que é de mais. É muito difícil encontrar bons selos em espanhol. Encontrei este, depois de uma longa procura em: Stampendous. Gosto da letra também. 

Este é um cartão com dobragem de portão que adornei com Spellbinders Adorning Squares mixturado com o corte mais pequeo do set Delicate Doilies. E é claro que tinha que adicionar pérolas e cristais (confeso que sou adita a enfeites!). Resulta que encontrei uma fita que combina perfeitamente com a tinta Brilliance Pigment Ink em cor Pearlescente Beige, que em verdade é mais como um cor areia ou latte. 

Sabe, tenho um pequeno filho que vai cumprir tres em breve. Ele está nessa fase... Esa fase espontânea e barulhenta :) Amo muito ele. Peço a Deus que proteja y abençoe ele em cada paso do caminho e que me dê sabedoria para criá-lo da melhor maneira possivel. Tendo dito isto, dedico esta publicação de aniversario a ele.

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 …
