2018 Occasion Bundles - Magical Day

Hello Friends!! today I am sharing a card using a bundle from the 2018 Occasions Catalog!!! 

My card is featuring the Magical Day Bundle!! This bundle is awesome as it has great images for kids, or at least that is what I picture myself using this for.. though there is a knight that will be perfect for my guy maybe during valentine's day??  :)

Anyway, I wanted to play so badly with this dragon since I got this set!!

I colored the little dragon using the blends!! OMG the blends are so great to color with, I am not kidding, they are so easy to use and because these are alcohol based you don't see the line strokes you make when coloring and of course you can blend the colors, hence the name.. These have truly became my preferred way to color!! :)
 Please remember to use memento ink when using coloring with blends..

Anyway, there are 12 combo colors on our collection of blends!! each color combo has two markers a light and a darker shade of each color, there are 2 more additional single colors that will be awesome for skin coloring or hair coloring and there is as well one color lifter, that will truly add a lot of texture or enhance the shadowing when coloring.. so if you are interested in the full collection of blends, let me tell you about the best way to get it!! which is purchasing the starter kit!, yes you heard me, the starter kit lets you get up to $125 worth of products for only $99 plus tax, so you end up paying around $107 (depending on you tax rates), versus when you purchase the full collection by itself you end up playing $121.5 +shipping, +tax, so about $144 (depending on your tax rates), In addition to this when you get the starter kit during Sale-A-Bration you get an additional TWO stamps of your choice, any value from the annual or occasions catalog!! I mean talk about a great deal!! and once you have purchase this kit, you also get enjoy 20% discount on your future purchases; another perk of this is that you would be part of my team  :)

If you have any questions about the Starter KIT please contact me HERE

If you are ready to get the $99 starter KIT, click HERE the item number for the Blend collection that includes all 26 markers is 147475. 

Once I colored the dragon with the blends, I added Wink of Stella to some areas of the dragon (mainly the areas colored with Daffodil delight), I love how the Wink of Stella adds some shimmery to your images, it always looks awesome!!

you can see the following video tutorial to see how this card was made as well as the coloring on this dragon, like I said the coloring is so easy and using the blends have truly become my preferred way of coloring.. :)

Below is the supply list with all the products that I used to create this card, if you would like to get any of these items you just need to click on the images below, which will take you to my online store where you can purchase any of the items from Stampin' Up!.

Facebook live from Friday 1/26/18 - Petal Passion Memories and more card pack

Hello Friends, today I am sharing the projects I made during the last facebook live event.. this was on Friday 1/26/18 rather than Thursday as my little one got sick and we were at the doctor at the time I usually do these events, anyway little Oliver is doing much better and he is happy and running around the house as he always is.. thanks a lot for all your comments asking about him.. :)

For this event I made cards using the Petal Passion Memories and More card pack, it is an awesome pack as it has a lot of cards perfect for memory keeping, but the images on these cards look great as well to make greeting cards!

These truly made card making really easy, and there is almost no stamping involved (sshhh..  don't say it out loud), and of course i had to use my blends markers to color these cards!!! 

For this card, I colored the birds with pretty in Pink and pool party blends markers, and I used the wink of Stella on the heart between them.. this one really had no stamping at all!! 

For my next card, I used one of the larger cards and I actually had to cut some of it, as it is 4" x 6", so I had to trim a bit to make it 4" x 5 1/4".. the basic black mat is 1/8 larger than the card, so this is 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"; the sentiment on this card is heated embossing, which I love how it looks.. I truly love heat embossing, though I almost never use this technique.. sometimes I feel it takes time, and I am almost always in a rush.. ;-)

You can see more of the coloring details on this close up picture, the blends markers really make coloring super enjoyable and super easy.. I think coloring tend to be very relaxing..  

This next card, also has the sentiment heat embossed.. and as the other cards I did as well color the card, add a mat and voila a card is made in no time :) Hope you enjoy these cards. 

You can watch the video where I create these cards, you can see how all of them are super easy and quick to make.. even though there is some heat embossing involved.. 

And below is the supply list with all the products I used on these cards, if you want to get any of these items you can click on the images which should take you to my online store where you can purchase any of these items!! thanks a lot for your continuous support!

Also don't forget it is sale-a-bration time!!! and you get free items for every $50 you spend!!! no limits!!!

How to make a quick and easy Valentine's card

Hello Friends!! hope you are doing fine!! here is a card I made with the foxy friends punch!!! I love how this little critter turned out!

I used the sentiment from the ribbon of courage cause i think it is perfect for a friend or a loved one, and might not be just for valentine's day, this could be used on other occasions, don't you think?

The background was made with the heart happiness stamp set! and did you see the little heart on the raccoon? it is one of the enamel pieces from the bright collection, it has different shapes and one of them is a heart that I think goes perfect for this card. 

Below is the video where I show you how easy it is to put this card together!! 

I have also included a supply list below, and if you click on any of the pictures it would take you to my online store where you can purchase any of these items for you to recreate this card.

Hello Friends!, so today I am sharing a card that I made following the challenge from the Global Design Project team, this is #GDP121

Anyhow, you know I love so very much the party pandas stamp set, and I couldn't resist on using this set for this card!! 

I gotta be honest the colors being selected on this challenge are not my go to colors, however I really like how this card turned out! I think this is the first time I use the Peekaboo Peach! ha!!

I used the picture perfect birthday stamp set for the background and then I use We must celebrate stamp set for the sentiment, I use also the Myths and Magic washi tape, it just goes perfect with this color combo!

I colored the little panda with blends markers, I honestly love how this panda looks with cheeks!!  and the hat was colored with the sweet sugarplum stampin' write marker and the light bermuda bay blends marker and of course I had to put some Wink of Stella to make it better!! lol..

I am featuring the Sure Do Love You bundle from the Painted with Love Suite!! I love the designers series paper (DSP) on this suite as all the sheets of paper on this DSP  has gold foil!! It truly looks spectacular! and I am sure all your projects will look incredible when using this paper! 

For this Card I made a window with the coordinating framelits "Lots to Love Box", I use the larger heart of this set to cut the window on the card base and to cut the heart out of the designer series paper (DSP) that way it is same size as the window I created, I added the DSP heart to the inside of the card, so it shows thru the front of the card, it is not a fancy fold but it surely add a little WOW for the recipient. I like how easy this is to do..  If you want to see more details on how to make this card, you can watch the video tutorial below, you will see how easy it is to make this card :)

I love coloring the pandas with the blends, I just add a little bit of shadow to its body with the light smoky slate blends marker and the cheeks with the darker pink pirouette blends marker, I also colored the party hat using the bermuda bay light blends marker and the melon mambo stampin' write marker.. then I added Wink of Stella to the party hat to add a little bit of shimmer to it!! all looks better with the Wink of Stella! 

The final card is a valentine's card using heart happiness stamp set! and the sentiment is from the petal palette stamp set!, this one is a classic valentine's card..
