She began to fly and meet the new member of my family!!

Hello my friends! Hope you all are having a great day! Last Friday, I made this card and since I've been trying to find the time to post it, well, the time is now. I got inspired by the new Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Add some texture

For this card I used 2 stamps from the new April Release from Technique Junkies.
The pretty lady is from "Butterfly Woman" stamp, I stamped it on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, then I colored it with Chameleon Pencils, after that I die-cut the piece.
The sentiment is from "Began to Fly". I stamped it on a piece of vellum in Versamark Watermark, then added white embossing powder and heat set.
To create the gray texture I used Rose Cluster Stencil on a piece of gray cardstock and silver metallic embossing paste.
I added a blue metallic piece of cardstock on a 6" x 6" card base, then the other panels.
Finally I added a silver butterfly and pearls.



You can get these stamps and the stencil with a 10% off using my discount code

And now, let me introduce to you all the newest member of our family!!
This is Milo Jack Smith!! A 8 week old Vizsla pup, he is the reason why I have not posted projects, LOL. He is a very active boy, play play and more play. We have mastered the outside potty training, but still working on bed time, so far he is taking his naps on his crate and loves to play outside and my slippers are his favorite shoes to attack, hahaha.

He has an Instagram account, I couldn't resist. If you would like to follow him, just search for @milo_jack_the_vizsla

Hope you like my project and my sweet little puppy.

Technique Junkies Stamps April Release


Hello friends and Happy Easter and Welcome April!!
Today is the beginning of a new month, that means a new release from Technique Junkies Stamps!!
The selection for this month is amazing, love that Technique Junkies has a little something for every style!
If you arrived here from the Technique Junkies Blog, then you are in the right place, if not go back to check it out!
Ok, let me show you the cards I made for you today

Love this couple! Aren't they adorable?! 
This card is very simple, "All Shapes" image was on a piece of white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, then added a bit of color with markers. Then, die-cut it with scalloped stitched dies, I die-cut a piece of patterned paper as well. Panels were added to card base with foam tape. I found a sheet of scrapbook stickers and added a couple that fit the best {wink, wink}


++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Since I got the "All the Moms" stamp, I had the idea to create a window card, I mean with a real window, hehehe. So, I cut my stamps, yep, I used scissors and cut the sentiment and the floral part. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of black cardstock in Versamark Watermark Ink and added blue embossing powder and heat set, then die-cut the piece.
With the help of my MISTI I positioned the floral part on a corner in Blue Ink, kept the stamp in the same spot on my misti and stamped the opposite corner.
Die-cut a frame and added to the window, then stamped the sentiment on a piece of vellum and added it under the frame.
Finally, added blue rhinestones and the sentiment inside the card .

Inside of card.
 +++++++++++++++++++

This image is very pretty! I stamped the "Poppy Bouquet" image on a piece of watercolor paper in Antique Linen Distress Ink, then colored the images with ColourTint Pencils by Spectrum Noir, the colors are very soft and I love how it turned out! Stamped the sentiment from "All the Moms" set on a piece of vellum, then die-cut the pieces. Added sequins and pearls and Brown Gala Glitz in the center of the poppy.
Added panel to card with foam tape.
++++++++++++++++++

Super easy card!!! I stamped the "Fairy Tale Flowers" on a piece of Gold Vellum in Versamark Watermark Ink and Gold Embossing powder, then heat set. Die-cut the background, then cut a diagonal piece of the panel and adhered the piece to a Kraft card base. Stamped the sentiment from "All The Moms" set on a piece of white cardstock and added it to card front, then added pearls and a little banner.


Now, I invite you to visit Ceal's blog!
Don't forget the new release has an instant 15% off until April 8th!! (no coupon needed)

Hello Spring
For this project I used the brand new "Spring Branches Die Set" and "Hello Spring Stamp".
I die-cut the branches using White cardstock, then colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.
For the background panel I used the outer die from "Bunny Frame Die", die-cut it using watercolor paper, then applied Color Burst: Lemon Yellow and Alizarin Crimson.
After the panel got completely dried, I stamped the "Hello Spring" sentiment in Jet Black Stazon Ink.
Then added all the branches to the panel.
Embellished it with pearls.


Happy Easter

For this project I used a background I created with leftover paint the little ones had after painting their picture frames. I thought it would be fun to use it in an Easter project, and loved how this card turned out.
I again used the outer die from "Bunny Frame Die", I die-cut the "Happy Easter" in Gold cardstock, then the "Bunny Border" in pink Cardstock. Added the border with foam tape and glue the sentiment on panel.
Finally I added it to a A2 Card Base.
