Easter bunnies

True to my resolution here is another card using some images that have been waiting sometime on my folder to be colored. Also, I had this yellow cardstock for ages! because yellow is not one of my favorite colors most of the time I don´t use it (or better I don´t know how to use it...) but here I ended up with an easter card.
I saw this idea of glittering a doble sided tape and here is my try, pretty neat and easy!! love it! Then I took a scrap of glittered patterned paper, cut it and rounded its tips up before placing it on the card.
The images are from Bugaboo that I placed them together in a square fashion with PS, colored them with colored pencils, layered it with black cardstock and added a bit of glossy accent, they look cute, don´t they?

A cute little card

One of my resolutions for this new 2012 was to color all those forgoten images I had, printed or not, and make cards or crafts out of them. This is a very simple and clean card.
I simply stamped the sentiment and placed the image with foam tape.
How beautiful is this image?! it's from A day for Daisies that I printed it on a scrap watercolor paper, then I colored it with watercolor pencils and a water tank brush, and finally I added the shadows with my regular colored pencils. Very simple and it makes me smile when I look at it ☺

Birds of a feather...

I´m trying to use my stash, and my new rubber stamps! I´m still struggling to make good impressions... here you have a good example of not a good stamping (*sigh* maybe one day...) but the paper is great for coloring!
Patterned paper, cardstock, buttons, flower are all oldies on my stash, but I still love them! I colored the image with my colored pencils and added a bit of glitter on the bird´s hats, rounded the bottom corners and faux stitched with white gel pen.

Today my daughter (12 y-o) showed me this video, and now it´s my turn to share it with you all. Never doubt, never forget: We can make a difference.

A bookmark

Second post today! whoo hoo!! ☺ I made this bookmark for my daughter. I had this image from A Day for Daisies printed out for ages waiting to be colored.... love it, it´s simply gorgeous! and goes wonderful with the sentiment I placed on the back of the bookmark (from TlcCreations).
I colored the image with colored pencils, I wanted to use shades of purple only (to match the patterned paper I have it on my stash for ages too...), but I added a few touches of pink and glittered the flowers on the mother´s dress. As embellishments just added a few fabric flowers (gift from my sister Dani!) that I decorated with purple sequins and some glass seed beads. Very simple, but I love how it looks in real life!
On the back I layered the sentiment with a punched strip of the same patterned paper, and to make it less bulky I only added the flowers and sequins. Hope you like it as much as I do ☺
Thank you for looking!

Easy and quick, I love how this card turned out... I made it for a (male) friend, it´s very hard for me to do masculine cards that´s why I´m so happy with the result.
How gorgeous is this elephant?! and the cake?! both images are from The Graphics Fairy that I opened them together on PS (the sentiment is also computer generated), print them and cut out, after that I used glitter pens to highlight some parts. Then I placed them both, the image and the sentiment, with foam tape, and voilà! there you have it ☺

Thinking of you

Loving this hoopskirt frame stamp! it´s part of a set of clear stamps my sweetheart got me (isn´t he sweet or what???).
here you have a close picture, I stamped two of them directly onto the card base and stamped a swirl (from another clear stamp set) on the top part to add them a bit of height; the third one I stamped it on a scrap of a book page I painted with pink acrylic paint, cut it around, glued a few feathers behind and placed it with foam tape. Then, I thought something was missing so I glittered them a bit.
To make the bottom border I pleated a paper measuring tape (thank you IKEA!!! ♥), I took a piece of this beautiful embossed vellum paper I had for ages and cut around the image, I didn´t like it while I was making the card but I sticked with my first idea just to trust myself a bit... and now I think it looks delicate and pretty, what do you think? I finished my card with a tiny tag and a sentiment.
Have a nice day!! and thank you for stopping by ☺

You are special...

Love how this card turned out, not only because I´m loving the CAS look of my cards lately but also because I´m starting to learn how to stamp images (not only print them!). I´m not very good at it yet but I´ll make it better every time... besides it´s a wonderful excuse to start spoiling myself a bit with new and colorful inks pads!
This card was very easy and quick to make, as you can see. Here you have a front view to show you a few details like some glass seed beads on the center of the flowers, glittered the butterfly wings and added a trio of pearled paint dots on the bottom left corner.
Thank you for stoppping by!

Thinking of you

I let myself be inspired by "The cure for the winter blues challenge" at Moxie fab world, in particular by this image:
How gorgeous! love the colors, love the symmetry, love all the elements on it... This is my take on the challenge
a very simple card where I added a few details like the embossed rice paper, rhinestones, ribbon, glitter, a brad and my beautiful stamp as the focal point (thank you Lynne!!!).
