Wendy's Bouquet

Today I'm bringing it back a little with an adorable CandiBean Rubber stamp. I adore this rubber stamp so coloring her was a must. 
A simple CAS card and with a few LDRS Creative dies to create a sincere card.

Today I'm doing something different and I'm sharing my coloring process. I hope you enjoy it and please tell me if this is something you want to see more of from me :)
I used Cutting Edge Border I to add contrast to the bottom of my card.
I stamped "Miss You "using the You collection.  
I used two cuts from the Gilded Oval Label 3 die set . A base for my sentiment and the other for the pink border design trim.

and here is a step procedure of my coloring with copic markers recipe

This is is Wendy's Bouquet from CandiBean Rubber stamps.

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.

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 


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.

SaborPapel TP Album

Hey guys Happy Earth Day!

Today I want to share with you my project with up-cycled toilet tissue roll or it works the same with Napkin rolls as well.
The whole process was so much fun to create and I can't wait to do it again. Let me explain to you the process.
   I used the beautiful and romantic Sabor Papel Amocollection for my whole Album.  

The photo collage above shows the process I used to create the mini album pocket pages.  

  • I used 5 rolls from my stash of toilet tissue and paper towel rolls. 
  •  Next, I passed them through my embossing machine to flatten them.  
  • I measured the pattern paper to match the length of the flatten rolls. 
  •  I cut the paper and aligned them on the score board to create the creases needed to fold over the flatten rolls. 
  • Finally, I glued the paper onto the rolls.  

Once they dried completely, I hole punched them and started to embellish them. 

 I used dies from LDRS Creative I then fussy cut images from the collection to add layers and dimension. 

Next,  I got to working on the tags that fit inside the pocket pages. 

Using a Creative Basic Stitched flag to use as a base for the tag.
 I fussy cut the tags from the Amor Sentimientos page to embellish and some tulle and fibers from my stash.  
The end result are just dreamy and simplicity that I just like.

 Here is the finished mini album.  For the cover, I added some rolled roses that I made and some bling flourishes from my stash.  I used book rings to bind the pages together and added beautiful ribbon to the rings and a flirty feather to the page.  

A few pics of the inside of the album

Very satisfied of the end result.  I  love the versatility of the project and would make a beautiful gift for a wedding ,bridal shower or AHEM.....  Keep for yourself lol!
