Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop – May


Hello Friends!! Today I am participating in the Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Blog Hop! if you have never heard of this fantastic group let me tell you a little bit about it.


The Random Act of Kindness (RAK) group is a group of Stampin’ Up! crafters (demonstrators and customers – anyone that loves Stampin’ Up! products can participate) all around the world that commits to send cards among each other, you can send one card or as many as you would like, this is a group on Facebook and if you are interested in participating on this group, you can join HERE


People from all over the world post the cards they are receiving and how these cards are lighting their days.. so it is a really cool group to participate in, and it helps us make a difference in someone else’s life, I am always so excited to see how people react when they receive any of my cards in the mail.. they know how important they are, and that someone took the time to make a card for them.. it puts a smile on their face, plus lets face it, when we only get bills on the mail, it always is fun to receive a hand made card on the mail, don’t you agree?? 


This is the first time I am participating on the RAK blog hop, so for this time I wanted to show the cards I am sending this month to the people I randomly selected from the group.. 


Here are the pictures of the cards I am sending




Even if you are not part of this group, make a plan to  send your handmade cards to your loved ones, I am sure they will feel the love and you will make their day happy..

Facebook live 4/19/18 – quick and easy cards

Hello Friends!, here is my last card for the week showcasing the Remarkable You stamp set that is retiring in May!! I am also showcasing two other cards that were made with different stamp sets, the Garden in bloom that is as well retiring at the end of May and the Beautiful Day Stamp set that still will be available in the new catalog. 


Please note that until May 25th, Stampin’ Up! is guaranteeing the availability of the stamp sets, however after this date, it is only while supply lasts, ALL other items retiring are already while supply lasts, so be sure to get your favorite items ASAP, there are a lot of great items already discontinued!! 


These three cards were made during a Facebook Live event in April. I usually do a Facebook Live event every Thursday at 7pm CST, so be sure to join me as I show you how to make Three easy and quick, yet beautiful cards in these events..  I hold these events at my Facebook Page HERE


This first card is using also a retiring color, Marina Mist and as you can see I colored the stamped flowers with the Stampin’ Blends, I also added wink of stella on the flowers to add some sparkle to the flowers.. I absolutely love how it looks when you apply Wink of Stella 


Remarkable You Stamp Set

Here is a close up picture of the card, so you can see more of the details.. 

Remarkable You Stamp Set

The following card is using the Garden in Bloom, this stamp set is really great as it has the line image and the bold image, so you can stamp and color the flowers, these are considered Two Step Stamping Stamp Sets, and is also a fabulous stamp set as you can use a lot of coloring techniques with these type of stamps, you can stamp the bold image and not line image and you get a watercolor look, you can only stamp the line image and then pick your favorite coloring technique, you can do what I dis on this card and use both the line and the bold images.. so you can get different beautiful looks with each of these options. 


By the way, the color I used Flirty Flamingo was one of the retiring in-colors 2016-2018, however this particular one has made it to the core colors that Stampin’ Up! has, so it is a returning color and will be available with the new catalog.  

This final card was actually inspired in a swap I got at a Stampin’ Up! event called On Stage!! and when I saw this card swap, I knew I wanted to recreate it!! 


You can see the video tutorial for these three cards below, I go over measurements as well as instructions and tips to make these cards, I am sure you will enjoy watching it..  Please let me know if you have any questions 🙂




Also here is the supply list for all the items I use to make these cards, you can click at any of the images to go to my online store, where you can purchase any of these items!! thanks a lot!! I truly appreciate your support, also don’t forget….

Soon to Retire! Remarkable you stamp set

Hello Friends!! As mentioned previously this week I am featuring the stamp set Remarkable You, which is retiring at the end of May, this stamp set is just perfect for coloring and so I paired these cards with showing you how to use the Stampin’ Blends!! which are the Stampin’ Up! Alcohol Markers..


These markers are of great quality and they make super easy your coloring experience, you will feel like a pro when using them! I love that you don’t see the strokes you make when coloring and that you can blend the colors really nicely, also starting June 2018 Stampin’ Up! is releasing NEW colors on these markers!!! How exciting is this!!! 

Here is the card for today, I used Calypso Coral as the card base, and I colored the flower with the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends, you can see how well these markers color coordinate with Stampin’ Up! products!!, I don’t get tired to mention that one of the biggest advantages of using Stampin’ Up! products is how well everything coordinate, embellishments, card stock, designer series paper, inks, markers, everything!! so the designing of your projects is made so easy, as you just pick the color you want to use and everything else color coordinates perfectly as you can see on the card below..

Go for Greece Blog Hop

Hello Friends!! Hope you
are enjoying the week, today I am participating in an international blog hop
where fellow demonstrators will be hoping to show you different projects and
get you inspired. What I like of this group is that you get to see the
projects from around the world, and you get to meet other demonstrators with
whom you might not be familiar as they are in other regions..
As I mentioned on my previous post this week I am
featuring cards using the Remarkable You Stamp set, which is retiring at the
end of May!!

You can see below the image of this stamp set! you can
see all the images are just perfect for multiple coloring techniques, where my
favorite is using the Stampin’ Blends!! Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers which are
perfect as they color coordinate with the Stampin’ Up! colors, which is a great
feature as you can design your cards even easier when everything color
coordinate, don’t you agree?? 

Remarkable You Stamp Set
Talking about the Stampin’ Blends, with the new
catalog, Stampin’ Up! is releasing 11 new colors for these markers!! how
exciting is that!!! I cannot wait to get all of them, as I mentioned earlier
this is  by far my favorite coloring technique!!  I love how well
these blend together and the fact that you can do shadowing with these markers
without seeing the strokes of your coloring is another great feature when using
this markers. 
Fort his card, I used the leaves image and colored
with the old olive Stampin’ Blends combo, which has a light and a dark shade of
this color, keep in mind that you need to use the memento ink, for you to get
the best results when blending with the Stampin’ Blends, this will prevent
picking up the black ink from the image, just make sure that your image is
completely dry before you start coloring, but honestly this ink does dry
fast..

For this card I used as well the word “Friend” from the “Lovely Words” thinlits, another great die set that is retiring at the end of May.
