Facebook live 4-27-18 Magical day

Hello Friends!! Here are the cards we made on the facebook live event from 4/27. For this week I decided to use the same stamp set but change the background, to show you different ways to embellish the backgrounds and have different looks on your cards..

By the way the stamp set and coordinating thinlits are retiring at the end of May, so if you like this set, make sure you grab it before its gone!!


The first card is using watercolor paper!! and this one is colored with the ink pads and the aqua painters!! it is a little bit time consuming but if you use the heat tool you can accelerate the process a bit..

This cute unicorn comes from the magical day stamp set!! is that not gorgeous!!! It is perfect for little girls if you ask me!!


All of the unicorns were colored the same, I used memento ink, and then colored them with the stampin blends, I used the lighter shades for the hair, and then used the smoky slate for the shadows on the body and the pink pirouette for the cheeks, this always add a little personality to the critters, then of course I used the wink of stella over the hair!! I just love the shimmery look it leaves on the hair!! 


The clouds from all cards are from the Up & Away thinlits!! these coordinated perfectly!! love the look, specially cause all clouds were cut from the glimmer paper from myths and magic!! this is really stunning in person!

April Top Ten Winners Blog Hop – Baby Theme



Hello Friends!!, today I am participating on the Top Ten Winners Blog Hop, thanks to your support and voting for my card!! Thanks a lot!! the theme on this hop is Baby! and it is so special for me as I am sharing with you a special announcement.. 


When I learned that April’s International Highlights theme was Babies, I got so excited and decided that if I won this month, this is where I would announce that we are expecting a little girl in September!! We are so blessed to know that our family is growing and that I will have the joy to experience both a little boy (My Oliver) and now a little girl!! I am soooo thrilled with the news..

This is so especial for me as I had always wanted a little girl, we got pregnant back in 2015 of a little girl, but sadly she was sick and we lost her at week 15, I have never felt so much pain in my heart.. Any way a year later we got blessed with the arrival of our little Oliver and he is truly the joy of our lives!! he is such a happy boy, so fun and full of joy, I couldn’t have asked for a better baby!! I am sure all moms think that way..  I love so much having a little boy, that this time around, I honestly didn’t have a preference on a boy or girl, I even thought that another boy would have been perfect for Oliver to have a forever playmate and friend.. But when I got the news it was a Girl, I was so excited, as we will have the experience of being parents of a boy and a girl!! I am sure Oliver will still have a little friend on her and they will play together all the time.. so we are all super happy with the news!

Ok, now to the card!! Cause I am sure you are wanting to see the card!!! right??

Here is the sample for the card today!!, I really like this layout!! I love the look on the circle arrangement and adding a little bit of the mini gold sequin trim adds a lot to the card! don’t you think?

You can see more of the details on the close up of this card!, I colored the little bear with the light shade of crumb cake stampin’ blends!! I really enjoy using the blends for coloring, it is just so easy!!

The card featured today is a quick an easy card perfect for friendship, don’t you think? and I used the same colors being featured in the designers series paper for the color combo in the card. A lot of the times that is how I end up designing my cards, just looking at the colors being used on the paper pack and voila, it is perfect every time 🙂

Below is the close up, I added a gold faceted gem to the flower to make that flower pop up! 


By the way the banner is in Emerald Envy, and this is one of the in colors retiring this year!! so if you like it, make sure you stock up on this one before it’s gone!!
