Kristina Color Inpiration # 34

Hola, hola!

I have made this card for a great person and a good friend! She is moving next week to a different country and eventhough I don't see her often, I know I will miss her a bunch and hope we meet again someday. I hope she enjoys it, actually, I made a set of 4 note cards for her as a gift. I will show them to you later in the week.

For now I just want to show you one of the four cards I made for my friend. This cards were inspired by the template Kristina, once shared with all of us, I will try and look the link so you can have it too. So I hope you like it! Here it is.

Cute, ah? I really loooove this paper, I have used design paper from Special Occasions.

I keep telling you and myself this, it is hard to create a card with stamps that I have used once and again, and again, again and again. I am getting more as soon as I can. I am mentioning this because of the sentiment on this card. It was hand written, which is not so great looking, (Sigh)

I am sorry I was babbling hehehe. Please, enjoy it and let me know what you think, leaving a comment.

Many, many hugs!!!

P.S. Sorry it took me a while, but I finally found the template! Hope you enjoy it!

Have a Very Merry Christmas

It's been a very long time since I published anything... I feel like I say this every time I update the blog hehehe... I have to apologize.
Anyway, tonight I am bringing you a couple of cards. My idea was to make them so I could place cute pics inside somewhere, what do you think of these?

I have created this window card, thinking about bright colors and very Christmas like with trees and snowflakes. I loved making this one, it was very fun and it is the second time I have ever used buttons. I might change the buttons to something else since it might be too bulky to mail it.

I was trying to create something not so Christmasy but Christmasy, you know what I mean? hehehe. Christmas colors, but not necessarily the season symbols, except for the embossed trees on the right of the card, really hard to see in this pic.

With this one I tried to get the season symbols with soft colors, the only problem with this one is that I didn't finished it. I had the idea but then got distracted and "puff" it was gone... nothing that I tried I liked... I think I am just getting tire of using the same stamps set over and over again. Anyway, what can I do to finish this card? Any ideas or suggestions?
Actually, you know what? I think that would be a great idea for a challenge, don't you think? to finished a card...uhmmmm... I wonder if there are challenges like this. Okay okay I am getting distracted once again.
Like them? Please let me know.
Many hugs.

Sending Love at Christmas!

Good morning everyone!

First of I am very happy I made it to the top ten on the Color Inspiration #32 at Kristina Werner! I didn't really mean to, I though I didn't have a chance since it took me forever to come up with a great idea but... hey I made it!!!!!!

I have always wanted to do this kind of card since I saw Jennifer McGuire making a fab one. Mine is a bit different because I am not dry embossing and I do not have the same stamps, or materials since they are soo hard to find them here! anyway... Here it is. I hope you like it... and as usual, if you have any suggestions or improvements, I am all ears, sorry, eyes!

I almost forgot, I love how the ribbon looks on this card, but If I am going to mail it, I wonder if the envelop would end up tearing or something! any suggestions about that? I know I can replace the ribbon with something else, I just really like it! what do you do when you have to mail a cards with a nice ribbon and bow or nod?

Many, many hugs!

PD: What do you think Kerry?

Baby cards?...Mommy Cards!?

Uhmmm well, I had no idea babies had their own " business" cards!!! They are actually called Mommy Cards.This is sooo new to me... but you know I think it is still very cute and fab!

This is how I understand they work: when you go to a B-day party you prepare your gift and you add one of these cute cards to the gift so the parents and the kid will know who brought it!

Sometimes theses cards would be a family card, where all the family member have their name on as well as their contact info... clever and cute, ah? I wish I had a super printer to get them done with lots of color and amazing graphics... (sigh).

A friend of mine asked me (long time ago, I have to admit) if I'd do a couple for her and so I told her I would make some samples for her... not that I forgot about her I was just busy ( I am telling you, Ashley!!) anyhow! tell me what yah think, would you!? Any suggestions?

Kristina Werner Color Inspiration # 32

Good morning everyone!

I am having a big trouble getting ideas. I thought I had a great inspiration from other card maker in this Color Inspiration but ohhh boy I was soooo wrong! Anyway... I have tried so hard and this is what I came up with. Check them out...

This first card was pretty easy to come up with the idea I actually had it in my mind for a while... it was funny to see people with the same ideas... not really hard to make very simple too... before I thought it was a great idea but now.. I am not so sure... what do you guys think? It definitely needs something, I just don't know what.

Now this is more traditional, more layouty like, you know what I mean? well I got no help from any card I have seen for this one. I just went for the safe traditional-nothing-new kind of card... ( sigh) not very inspired lately I guess... sniff, sniff...

Please leave a message and let me know what you think, and what should I do to get my inspiration back. Many hugs!!!

Note Cards 2

Hey you guys! Here are the second stack of note cards. BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG difference with the ones from the post before. once again I just took a piece of designer paper, matching colors and glue! along with other tools! what ya think?

You can see. I stopped being so lazy and used other tools, like punches, and thread. I love these two.. hehehe... not because I made them, I am humble but they just look good hehehehe.

I love these too!! What do you think? like them? any improvements? please leave a cutey message!
Many hugs!!!

Note cards!

I need to update, I know. I have been making cards like crazy. I have got an order of 70 Christmas cards for an office!!! I am soooo excited... I keep working like a mad woman... anyway... today while printing the message for those cards I remember I have not share my note cards.

For this cards I am not using rubber stamps because I wanted these cards to be for any occasion... I was having a hard time with the designs you will be able to see it. I started by taking the designer paper ( the pack from DCWV), cut pieces and got matching paper along and at the end had a wonderful mess on the table... it was not easy to clean I am telling you,it even hurt to through tiny little pieces o paper away, but... I know I wont be able to do anything with them...
Okay I will stop talking. These are the first group! Enjoy and please don't forget to leave a comment with your opinion or even suggestions

You can tell I was just going crazy and without directions with these designs... you will notice when you see the next group of note cards I will poste them in a few minutes.
Okay, okay, may hugs!!!

My First Layout! Yiipii!!!

I keep trying to update my blog with my latest work.

Something I have worked for tha past week was... MY FIRST LAYOUT!! I made it for my sister's friend too, Lauremy. I decided it was a great occassion and wehad a great idea too.
The idea of this "album" as I call it, is to place advices in each envelope, I created two pages for for the same purpose, I will explain more on each pic. Okay with further due.... Ta da!!!!!!

First Advice: This two pages are dedicated to raltionships advice. the one on the right was used to place the title and the one on the left was used to place the envelop where the advices will be placed. This is repeats through out the rest of the papges of the album.

Second Advice: Intimacy.

Third Advice: Home and house work etc.

Fourth Advice: Kitchen and recipes!

Fifth Advice: Beauty.

Back Cover!

The materials I used... I am afraid it will be a bit difficult to list them all but the main materials were: Pictures from my favorite magazine: Living, DCWV paper, My mind's eye. (you can tell I have no more paper than those two hehehehe), Alpha Punch out, Ink dots, Chipboard, UHU glue, 2way glue, Cheap fabric flowers, SU stamps, American Craft rubons, brads, buttons, post it, stickers among others I can't remember right now.
I have to say, and I am very proud of this, The cardboard base for this album was completely recycled, from other paper goodies I had laying around. The spiral was made at a local store ( God! if only I had one of those machines) The dimensions of this almuns is 5" x 6" and the envelops are 4"x 3". Ufff I am tired... so.. what do you guys think? do you give it your thumps up?!
Many hugs!

Invitation for an unusual occasion!

Good morning and Happy Sunday to everyone,

I have to apologize for not posting ins such a long time. This has been a very busy week for me. But I am back annnnd I want to show you a couple of things I have been working on.

I made this card invitations for my sister's friend. Lauremy ( my sister's friend) just got married and they want to celebrate giving her a welcome-to-the-married-life kind of party. I was very sad I had no stamps for this occasion so I had to appeal to the computer and the amazing things you can do with it.

I used Windows Office. Got the images from Microsoft Clip Art. Okay, so here it is! what do yah think of this one?

My sister doesn't live in the same city I do, so I tied a cute ribbon and sent it her way like this. So...don't be shy and let me know what you think and if there are any suggestions, I will gladly take it!

Birthday Challenge

Yes, it is my birthday today! Spending it at home. Yesterday, I was checking Lindsay's blog and found she has this 3 challenges, you can participate in one or all three . You can click here to check for more info.
On the first card I made it for the challenge # 1 Technique: Where I am try to keep stamps and embellishments short by not stamping at all . I was inspired by a great artist paper in Etsy. I used a paper piercing and as letter molds I used Chipboard Alphabet from Jo-Ann Scrap Essentials. It was easy and therapeutic.

just a different view of the same card.

This card, I made for Challenge # 2 Color: Making a card with none Christmasy colors!? Holy cow! Well, I did my best and I think I pull it off. Let me think, for this one I used a lot of tiny little things specially color. I used all Stampin Up colors from the Bold brights set of ink pads ( Tempting turquoise, Orchid Opulence, Yoyo Yellow) I usedPunch Pals stamp set, Bassil purplish cardstock and my mind's eye designer paper. Ufff... I think I got them all. If you have any questions about any of the materials please let me know!

I have made other Christmas cards but I have always used, you kow the regular colors, greens and reds, etc. I like how this one turned out, what do you think? Do you think you can make a Christmas card with non-traditional colors? Give it a try!

This is the inside of the card. Enjoy it and don't forget to let me know what you think.

In the mean time, I am going to keep making some more cards or even better I will keep checking blogs for ideas!
