Random act of Kindness – September 2018

Hello Friends!! Today I am participating in the Random Act of Kindness Blog Hop! this is an amazing group that is committed to brighten someones life with handmade cards!  The way this works is you add your address to this group if you want to receive cards, and you also select people on this list and send them cards randomly.. 


I can tell you that getting a handmade card on the mail is always very exciting, you feel special as someone thought of you when sending one of their creations, don’t you agree?


If you want to participate on this group you can sign up HERE 


So this month was my birthday and I got several birthday cards which really brighten my day, specially cause this year was very special. My daughter was born 6 days earlier than my birthday and it was a C-section, so this year while I felt blessed to have my little one with us, I definitely didn’t feel like throwing a big celebration party 6 days after surgery, so getting these cards on the mail really put a big smile on my face!

This card was sent by Karen Ferguson, I love how elegant this card is, black and white always look so good!! 

This card was sent by Nicky Morgan, love this little calendar!

How to make a handmade card step by step using the varied vases bundle from Stampin’ Up!

Hello Friends!! Today I am sharing a video tutorial to show you how to make a handmade card step by step using the varied vases bundle from Stampin’ Up! 


As usual this is a quick and easy card that you can recreate in no time, so give it a try, and recreate this card in multiple colors or changing the vases; there are several options for vases in this stamp set, also did you notice that the vase is cut out? this was done with the coordinating punch. This is a bundle and when you purchase the stamp and the punch together you save 10% on each.

Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a quick and easy card, where I show you tips and tricks for using Stampin Up's Varied Vases Bundle!  You‘ll love how quick and easy this is to make!  www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #handmadecards #friendshipcards

For this card I used the Garden Impressions designer series paper, this pack comes in a 6×6 pack with lots of great designs, one side has lots of florals and the other has more of a monochromatic design. As usual I used the colors on the designer series paper to pick the color combo on my card. 


The Night of Navy and the Mango Melody go really well together, don’t you agree? I really like that everything color coordinate when using Stampin’ Up! products, you can see it so well on this card, the card stock, the designer series paper and the ink pads all color coordinate so well! It really makes it so easy to design the cards as you just pick the color inspiration and then everything else color coordinate perfectly, no more running to the store to figure out if you have the right shade of color, or the right color for the embellishments.. I remember always taking so much time figuring out if what I had on stock color coordinate or going to the store looking for the perfect embellishment to go with my project!!

How to make a pop up greeting card super easy

Hello Friends!! Today the design team from Enjoy the Little Things in Life are doing a video blog hop with the theme of Pop Up cards or interactive cards! I am particularly excited with this theme as we all get to learn different techniques from each other on how to make this type of cards, and the best part is that because this is a video blog hop, you can see step by step how these are made!


Usually interactive or pop up cards are hard to photograph and appreciate the movement of the card, so a video definitely makes more sense! I am sure you will love to visit all the participating blogs and get lots of inspiration for future projects!! 


For my card today I used the abstract impression bundle, which was released earlier in June with the new annual catalog, but I paired it with the Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper as the flowers on this designer series paper coordinate pretty well with the set, don’t you agree?


The Frosted Floral specialty designer series paper is gorgeous, and what makes it special is that all the designs were printed on shimmer paper, so all the sheets on this pack have that shimmery look that will make your projects look gorgeous.

Be sure the watch the video tutorial as I show you a quick technique on how to color your stamps to get two colors on the same image, that way you can get the look similar to the designer series paper..

The wow factor of this card is when you open it! as the butterfly will pop up! I love this technique to make pop up cards, believe me, it is super easy and anyone can do it! watch the video tutorial to see step by step how to make it!  As mentioned before it is really hard to photograph pop up cards as it is hard to capture the movement or the interactive part of the card, so you can appreciate it better in the video below!

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop – September 2018 – favorite technique

Hello Friends!! today I am participating on the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop, I am particularly excited with this month’s theme as it is favorite techniques! and I believe you will be able to learn so much from all the demonstrators around the wold participating on this event! so make sure you visit all blogs on this hop! you do not want to miss any of them!! 🙂


 The technique I chose for this event is coloring with Stampin’ Blends! if you have been following my blog, you probably know that I absolutely love coloring with these alcohol markers! these are fabulous, I love how well these blend and the fact that you don’t see any strokes as you color with them! 


Stampin’ Up! has so many colors that of course color coordinate with all the colors available in the Stampin’ Up! family, so when designing your projects this makes it so easy, as the embellishments, cardstock, inkpads and markers all coordinate!! Also these markers have a light and a dark shade, so you can do some shading when blending, you can mix and match colors, like I have done for this card. There is no Coastal Cabana blends, however I mixed the dark pool party with the light bermuda bay and it looks really well with the coastal cabana! don’t you agree? 


I filmed a video so you could see some tips and tricks about coloring with Stampin’ blends, so be sure to watch the video 🙂

I used the sweet baby bundle for this card. Is that not the cutest little baby? Also check the edge on the card front, this was made with one of the dies from the framelits set in this bundle! I really liked the scallop edge with the stitched lines.
