All Clean & Simple

Hello blogland friends! I made a few cards with a C&S look and I wanted to share them with you (and play at some challenges too!). Here are two of them:

this first one is very simple indeed! I bought a set of clear stamps a while ago and it´s my first card using them (actually one of them). I stamped the image several times with purple ink and a sentiment with black ink, then I stitched clear glass seed beads to frame the stamped area. I made this one because a friend (Paloma) asked me to make a card for a girlfriend of hers, and I thought it could be a nice present not only the card but a card with a pin she could wear. The pin is made out of scraps of fabric, dollar store flowers, pop tabs and glass piece from a chadelier that I brought at the flea market. It looked so pretty!
With this one I´m playing at:
The Outlawz CAS challenge: use something new
My time to craft challenge #171
Creative Belli blog challenge #136: Frames
Cute card Thursday challenge #201: you are a gem!

The second one is a digital card I made for my dear boyfriend Luis, I sent it to him by e-mail and he placed it as wallpaper on his computer ☺ it looks like he liked it! the images are from The Graphics Fairy, I "stamped" a tiny heart and the sentiment, it reads in Spanish PS: I love you.
I´m playing at:
The Outlawz Paper A La Mode challenge: clean and simple Valentine
Cupcake Craft challenge #176: all you need is love
Aud Sentiments challenge #46

Thank you for stopping, have a nice day!

Showcasing Glitterbabe: second part

I have a couple more cards to show you where I used Stef´s (Glitterbabe) images ☺

A shower of LOVE
I kept this one very simple too! I started by printing the image directly on the card base along with the sentiment (made with PS). Punched the bottom border and added a scrap pink strip of paper behind. I colored the image with colored pencils, added a bit of glossy dimensional to the umbrella´s handle, glittered its top with white fairy dust glitter, glued some sequins and applied dots of pink pearled paint. It looks a lot better in real life!

And this one is another simple card (very easy and fast to make). Looks like I´m liking the CAS look a lot lately... I printed the drum four times directly on the card base and colored (with colored pencils) one of them to spotlight it. Added a few details like tiny red rhinestones, glitter, border punch and a piece of red sheer ribbon.

Thank you for stopping by and have a nice day!

Showcasing Glitterbabe

Hello my blogger friends, I´m not dead!! I´m just to busy at the time. I want to thank you for all your beautiful comments and a special thank you to those who still follow me even though I hadn´t updated my blog since October... OMG!!! where did the time go???!!!!

To slowly update my beloved blog I want to show you a few cards I made using Stef´s images. Sadly Stef has closed her store but maybe in the future we´ll see available again her beautiful images.

you color my life
When Stef (glitterbabe) sent me this image (Bottle) the idea to make a rainbow just popped up into my head. I made a bookmark by "stamping" the image several times with PS, then I added a text and printed it directly on a scrap of paper. I colored the images with colored pencils and added glossy accent to give them a glass kind of look. I finished it with some black foam stickers and a couple of buttons from my stash. Pretty simple and clean but I like the result a lot.

This is a simple tag I made using scraps of everything, I printed the image  in a piece of pearled white paper and colored the gift boxes with colored pencils adding some touches of glitter gel pen on the leaves and red fruits. I punched the bottom border of the tag and stitched green glass seed beads around the patterned paper. I finished it by placing the image with foam tape and a scrap of ribbon.

Beautiful you!
I love this image!!! I started by paper piecing the image (printed on a scrap of patterned paper) and colored it (and shaded it) with colored pencils. I printed the sentiment on a scrap of paper and cut around each word to place them separately (YOU has foam tape). Then I took a piece of tissue paper and pleatted it before gluing it to the left side of the card, I added faux stitches with white gel pen and a strip of embossed white paper. To finish the card I embellished it with a flower made out of layering a dollar store flower, a crochetted flower (made by me ☺) and a few sequins.

Thank you for stopping by and not forgetting me, have a nice day!
